Richie Incognito is mad as heck and decided on a random Wednesday afternoon to let everyone know about it.
The Dolphins lineman unloaded on Jonathan Martin on Twitter in a series of messages. Incognito was accused of bullying Martin, who left the Dolphins. Incognito was suspended and hasn't returned to the team.
The anger has been building up over what he says are "allegations and lies," and let the world know on his social media account:
Dear Jon Martin..... The truth is going to bury you and your entire "camp". You could have told the truth the entire time.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 12, 2014
Jon Martin---you started all of this when Kenny Zuckerman released the VM to ESPN. The same VM we joked about with @brianhartline— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 12, 2014
I'm guilty of being a loyal friend and good teammate. I apologize for my poor language and rude remarks. I've never denied it.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 12, 2014
I apologize to all of the women out there that I offended with my text messages to my close personal friend.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 12, 2014
FACT: Jonathan Martin told me he thought about taking his own life in MAY 2013 b/c he wasn't playing well. Told me he felt worthless.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 12, 2014
During his rant, he linked to the Outkast song "Bombs Over Baghdad." He unleashed a fury that really hasn't been seen from him throughout the ordeal. His most extended comments came during the season to Fox's Jay Glazer, but he was apologetic and calm throughout those.
He wasn't so calm with this rant. He also said he isn't pleased the report on the investigation is taking so long to be released, and he has a point. The NFL hired investigator Ted Wells to report on what happened between Incognito and Martin, and that still hasn't been released. Incognito rightfully wants to know what will happen with his NFL future after the report comes out.
Incognito might have been better off not blasting Martin before the report comes out (after a 32-minute lull between tweets he said he had no further comment and referred all questions to his lawyer), as he obviously feels the facts are on his side, but he clearly couldn't hold back his feelings any longer.
