    Absolutely. I have more of a problem with Incognito's behavior than anything that did or didn't happen to Martin. I've wanted Richie gone before any of the bullying stuff hit.

    I agree. How many sacks did Martin give up this year? He, Richie, Clabo and Jerry have nearly gotten Tannehill killed this year.

The media is fueled by the agenda of making this a huge scandal and they are cherry picking what to write and overlook anything that might contradict Martin's side of the argument, this notion of a twisted culture in Miami is ludicrous and if Miami is a twisted culture than the entire NFL is twisted.

    The NFL better be careful here in getting what they ask for, Richie I would bet could hang a lot of people out to dry, Martin included but I bet given the type of "scumbag" Richie is, he won't do that to people he considers "friends" where as Martin will do anything to make himself look better.

    You tell me who the bigger scumbag is............I know who I choose.
    I'm not even including the Martin/Incognito scandal in why I think Richie should have been cut long ago. This team doesn't need a drunk with anger issues and psychological problems. Just thinking about the judgment Incognito showed in holding meetings at strip clubs. That's the level this guy is on. Imagine how well the players' retention for blocking assignments and improving their technique would go over at a tittie bar. The sexual assault on the golf volunteer was the icing on the cake, which I blame the Dolphins organization for just as much for giving the victim "hush money". Incognito has atrocious character and the the fact that Philbin & Co. thought he would be good in a leadership position shows serious flaws in their judgment.

What Incognito was accused of doing maybe socially wrong it is not illegal and he has been suspended.
    Different matters. They cannot be suspended unless they are convicted under the new CBA, so they very well could eventually be suspended. Incognito was suspended by the team, not the NFL, for conduct detrimental to the team, not for legal issues. Was the suspension warranted? I have no idea, because I don't access to what all the team knows and what they based their suspension decision on. I'd be more skeptical if it was anybody else, but we're talking about a player with a LONG history. I also don't see the NFLPA jumping in to assist in appeal, which is interesting. I don't think I'll be jumping on the "Incognito for Sainthood" bandwagon anytime soon.

    That's not to say I approve of how Martin handled all of this.

    How soon before all of these people are no longer affiliated with the team?

    It won't be soon enough.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    I would think that a strip club would be the perfect place for a meeting with Martin
    since it wouldn't have been a distraction for Martin.
    Chippendales, on the other hand might have been a huge distraction for Martin

    No, really, the worst thing Ross did here, now that I really think about it, and I've had some time to think about it -- and obviously now that I have the hindsight of knowing that we'd suck up the joint against Tampa -- was call for this stupid NFL investigation. He should have just gone with his gut and fired everyone. Cut Martin, cut Richie, fire the GM, fire the head coach, fire the VP of Football Operations, and call it a day.

    He needs to look like he's doing his due diligence to obtain all of the facts, even if he has enough to go on. Don't want to scare off potential candidates by looking like he's drop them at the first sign of trouble without any hard evidence.

    I believe the CBA only allows him to be suspended until Dec. 12. that is all that is allowed for conduct detrimental to the team.. On Dec. 12 fins have to cut him or reinstate him...
