Wells Report Jumps All Over Incognito


The National Football League commissioned Ted Wells and the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP to independently investigate the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin to-do back in early November...

Wells is done and it doesn't back up all the Twitter carpet-bombing that Incognito did yesterday...

Wells admits that the conclusions are his but he feels, in part:

“The Report concludes that three starters on the Dolphins offensive line, Richie Incognito, John
Jerry and Mike Pouncey, engaged in a pattern of harassment directed at not only Jonathan Martin, but also
another young Dolphins offensive lineman and an assistant trainer. The Report finds that the assistant trainer
repeatedly was the object of racial slurs and other racially derogatory language; that the other offensive lineman
was subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching; and that Martin was taunted on a
persistent basis with sexually explicit remarks about his sister and his mother and at times ridiculed with racial
insults and other offensive comments.”

Some of the texts, especially regarding Martin's sister, are just disgusting...
The HQ will let you read them yourself and not re-print them...

Martin, in self-analysis, views himself as a pushover and even contemplated suicide.

Wells concludes that the behavior by the three is "consistent with workplace bullying."

Another Dolphins lineman was subject to more childish abuse and an assistant trainer was subject to really amateurish attempts at guy-humor. The trainer is of Japanese descent and was joked on Pearl Harbor Day that Pouncey and Martin would get revenge wearing rising sun headbands.

I mean, this stuff is just stupid... and Coach Philbin and his staff and the front office, as reported, DIDN'T KNOW???!!!

How is that even possible...???

Here's the report, thanks Deadspin...
Go ahead and read...

Paul Weiss Report

The HQ has read about a third of it... and we're stunned and disgusted...

If true, the whole Dolphins roster and front office need to be brought up as an example of how not to run a business...
