So, the whole Miami Dolphins-Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin-bullying situation has officially gone plaid.
CBSSports is reporting that Incognito sent racially charged texts to Martin, including one in which he refers to Martin -- who is biracial -- as a "half n*gger." There's also a text in which he refers to shitting in Martin's mouth.
And, because the Irony Truck always seems to hit the Dolphins in the face, there's this: Incognito had shot a "code of conduct" video for the team to be played for fans during games -- one that warns fans of using foul language, being abusive, and fighting.
The video, which was to be played on the Sun Life Stadium jumbotron, shows Incognito playing croquet with classical music in the background.
"Hi. I'm Richie Incognito," he says as the video begins. "On the field, players have called me overly aggressive. While off the field... I'm quite civilized."
Incognito then adds, "Please be respectful and civilized..."
To which the Dolphins' Big Voice Guy chimes in with:
"Please do not use foul or abusive language... fighting, taunting, or threatening remarks are prohibited."
So... Much... Irony...
Multiple sources confirmed to ESPN that the following is a transcript of a voice message Incognito left for Martin in April 2013, a year after Martin was drafted:
"Hey, wassup, you half n----- piece of s---. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s--- in your f------ mouth. [I'm going to] slap your f------ mouth. [I'm going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F--- you, you're still a rookie. I'll kill you."
The Dolphins really can't do anything right. At all. Ever.
