After a week of explosive allegations and revelations in the RICHIE COGNITO-JONATHAN MARTIN bullying case, NFL pre-game shows finally got their say so on the mess in Miami. The most passionate response came from NFL on CBS analyst SHANNON SHARPE. This is what Sharpe had to say about the Dolphins situation and the use of the N-word in the club’s locker room…
Sharpe had his CBS colleagues’ complete attention as he expressed deep concern for the unacceptable culture allowed to flourish in the Dolphins locker room.
The allegation that African-American players with the Dolphins referred to Incognito as an “honorary black man” is deeply disturbing as Sharpe mentioned…as is the over-the-top behavior that the Dolphins coaching staff apparently encouraged among its players.
There are numerous layers to this story and likely numerous culprits as well. We’ll see what the NFL uncovers in its investigation which is currently underway.
