Ten Times Richie Incognito Has Acted Like a Jackass
On Sunday, Richie Incognito finally broke his silence, post bullying-gate, when he sat down with good pal Jay Glazer of Fox Sports for an exclusive interview.
Glazer lobbed softball after softball and allowed Incognito a chance to tell his side of the story, which included revealing that he and Jonathan Martin had exchanged 1,142 texts over the last year that kind of hinted at proof that Incognito and Martin exchanged nasty texts as jokes. Incognito supporters took this as vindication for their guy. The texts jokey, you see. Which totally makes it cool for Incognito to call Martin a "half-n**ger" and threaten to kill him.
Fair point, we suppose. Except that, as mentioned above, Glazer is a good friend of Incognito, and the interview felt more like a PR move than a revealing exposé.
Then there's this: All the times throughout the years Incognito has acted like a jackass.
Sure, it's not 1,142 texts... but it is proof that Incognito has always been an awful human person. Here now, are 10 times Richie Incognito acted like an asshole:
10. That time he got into a fight at Club LIV in Miami Beach In August of this year, Incognito allegedly got into a fight at LIV. He and his friends got into a brouhaha with another man's friends. Incognito told cops he was just trying to break up the fight. He was let off with a trespassing warning.
9. That time he taunted his own fans after his team lost In 2008, while he was with the St. Louis Rams, Incognito taunted fans like a WWE wrestling villain as they booed him and his teammates. He apparently also mocked Rams fans before the game. As it was with the Dolphins, no one on the team confronted him on it (until it was too late).Next Page
