    How did they get the transcript of texts between incognito and Pouncey? There's no subpoena power here right? I assume that's not something either of those guys volunteered.

    sadly I've been desensitized to the point that the quotes I have seen, I don't find all that shocking. It's definitely vile and I obviously don't condone any of it, but it's pretty much what I expected from football players, sadly.

    Someone probably volunteered to give it to an investigator.

    A few excerpts:
    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.

    -The Report rejects any suggestion that Martin manufactured claims of abuse after the fact to cover up an impetuous decision to leave the team.
    Contemporaneous text messages that Martin sent to his parents and others months before he left the Dolphins—which have never before been made public—corroborate his account that the persistent harassment by his teammates caused him significant emotional distress.

    -The Report concludes that the harassment by Martin’s teammates was a contributing factor in his decision to leave the team, but also finds that Martin’s teammates did not intend to drive Martin from the team or cause him lasting emotional injury

    Jonathan Martin needs to join a knitting club where he'll get a bunch of attaboys for his below-standard level of technique.

    Wasn't there a story the Pounceys beat up a student because he stole a player's Xbox?

    Common knowledge that he was bullying the highly touted freshman that came in his senior year. Part of the "Broken" program.

    Common knowledge or what some people heard? I know Mike & I know the "highly touted" freshman too. It was more of a "start talking after you've done something on the field" issue. It wasn't "bullying". Three of the 2010's were brought down to earth. Unfortunately the recruiting stars sometimes go to players heads & they need a reality check.

    I'm glad it happened because it seemed to have humble the freshman. They turned out to be great players & great guys off the field too.

    It lead to some real crappy chemistry on that year's team and it showed.

    I think losing the players to the NFL the year before is more to blame for the season's results.

    JMHO
