No surprise here, but it is a shame that Goodell doesn't do something about players that do things like this. With all those cameras out there, you would think some of it would be captured and reviewed.

...

"A dirty player being let to play dirty ... Richie Incognito," Smith said via the Houston Chronicle. "Everything that's illegal that can be done on the football field he does it, but mainly he was hitting people after the play, sliding down on your leg, grabbing your ankle and trying to twist to break your ankle and he was doing it right in front of the referees and he was still in the game."

We could write some analysis to this, but it's not going to be as entertaining or informative as Smith's quotes.

"It's the referees' job to stop him from doing it because everything that I would do to stop him I would get a penalty for. I told myself you've got to humble yourself and keep playing. There were so many times that I would have to loved to just be like hockey. Drop the helmets off, drop the gloves, go fisticuffs. We're men. Let's go at it."

He's the A-hole who got the cheap shot in on Cushing after his interception. I would have found an opportunity to "accidentally" fall sideways into is knee cap.

Read about this yesterday. He has always been a dirty bastard since he was at Nebraska. That's why he got released from St.Louis,he got into a verball altercation with Spagunolo for doing the same the thing in a game against the Lions I believe it was.

Will this is a perfect chance for goodell to study the tape and lay down some serious suspensions, hopefully they uphold this time. I as a fan am not watching football to see some smuck laying on the ground trying to twist foot around, or even those old head to head hits, football is great even when played within the rules, now Nascar, that's another story.

This will get swept under the rug; we only care because it's our player, our team. Would we care if the Jags complained about one of the Vikings players? Or if the Phins complained about one of our guys? As sad as it is, this is just one of the things that happens and nothing will come out of it.

I remember that whole incident.

Richie Incognito had some sharp words -- but with little bite -- after the Rams cut him on Tuesday.

The Rams parted ways with their starting right guard after he was flagged for two personal fouls in Sunday's loss to the Titans for head-butting two opponents. It was the final act of a string of questionable behavior from Incognito. 12/16/09 USA TODAY (http://content.usatoday.com/communities/thehuddle/post/2009/12/ousted-richie-incognito-steve-spagnuolo-doing-a-great-job-with-1-12-rams/1#.UE4b_67leSo)

Geez, is that a home town newspaper? Ouch.
In other words, he's not the brightest crayon in the box, the sharpest tool in the shed, or the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree.

The facts are there to support the argument that Incognito might not be all there. Here are the five symptoms of mental retardation according to Google Health:

Symptoms

Continued infantile behavior
Decreased learning ability
Failure to meet intellectual developmental markers
Inability to meet educational demands at school
Lack of curiosity

Let's see how the Rams guard stacks up...

Lolphins fans are maaaaad haha...

Seriously though, we all know Smith has a reputation with his mouth and I think that's cost him before. I mean how many times has he barely glanced a QB's helmet and gotten a roughing the passer for it?

Incognito's act is about as lame as the jokes that stem from his name. Antonio is right. Why is he allowed to do that when the rest of the league is being hit with penalties and suspensions for the same thing? ESPECIALLY when everyone including his own team and fanbase know it's the truth.

Besides, there's a big difference between someone playing physical and letting you hear all about it (Ninja) and playing physical...after the play is over (Ricky).

I cared when Haynesworth was stomping on players faces that were not on this team. Violence outside the rules of the game does not have any place in football.

Play until the whistles and then wait for the next play.

I never said this stuff shouldn't happen or should be tolerated. People make the worst assumptions.

What I SAID was, the NFL will brush this under the rug because it always has. The only reason we're even aware of this and outraged by this is because it happened to our team. Sure, there are exceptions like face stomping, but small stuff like this is going to be headlined, then fade away.

I would venture to bet that the Dolphins have one of the weakest fan bases in the entire NFL. Maybe on the same level as Jacksonville, actually.

They have nothing to point to since Marino left. That's a loooooooong time for any fan to hang around and be patient for something to hang their hat upon.

So yeah, they probably have a lot of immature newbie fans who know less about football and more about trash talking than anything else. Probably a lot of Reggie Bush fanboys just like the Vince Young fanboys acted.

Found these Qoutes from Incognito this dude is full of it.


It's strung together direct message tweets Incognito wrote in his defense.

“Once the ball was fumbled I grabbed his legs to stop him from recovering the fumble. It’s clear that I wrap my arms around both his legs. I was trying to keep him from scrambling to the ball.

“After the ball was recovered I felt him kicking me. I was trying to protect myself. Kind of like a turtle in a shell. At no time was I turning his ankle. My intent was to keep him from getting to the ball.”

“... Obviously in a case like this I have no ground to stand on [because] of my reputation. There is no evidence of me trying to injure him. The reason I’m seen holding onto one of his legs [because] he started kicking me in the arm and neck the the other. I had both legs in my grasp. The fact of the matter is I’m laying on his leg. There is no twisting motion whatsoever. He is clearly kicking me in the neck. Talk about dirty?”

We should know. We have nothing to point to either, and it's been about the same amount of time. (Actually the Dolphins did go to one playoff game after Marino retired; same as us.)

The Texans have actually been to 2 playoff games, winning one of them. That would be one more than the Dolphins, who BTW have never beaten the Texans in 7 games.

Thanks for setting me straight. If you think the Dolphins have been as equal as the Texans over the past 10 years, then you need some basic football 101 analysis tutorials.

Go back another 10 years prior and tell me what they've accomplished.

20 years of bad football. They're a joke, almost along the same lines as your reasoning skills on it. It's ok, we all step out and make a contrary statement every now and then. I do it. You did it. It's all good, man. Part of life.

Well we've had one playoff season and they've had one playoff season. They actually had to take the division from the Patriots to win their division as well that season with a brand new coach and Chad Pennington going 11-5. We had an easy division without any good QB's playing and we went 10-6. THe only real difference is that the Texans won a playoff game. We have had pretty much the same amount of success. Are you forgetting what a joke the Texans were in the Capers years? And then how badly they got laughed at in Kubiak's first 5 years? The organization was criticized for not firing the guy for a while. I don't see any real difference at all as far as the comparable success between both teams. The Lions are also a a very close comparison. After this season though, we should be able to separate from both of those teams as far as the success from the last 10 years goes.

I guess if you think their one playoff year was comparable to ours...then, I don't know what to say...because the Dolphins that year surprised opponents with the Wildcat formation and crashed and burned in the playoffs and where never heard from again.

How anyone can say that the Dolphins and Texans are equal in regards to having one playoff season each, when considering HOW it was accomplished, is beyond me. Seriously.

This time it’s Cardinals defensive end Nick Eason, who is preparing to face Incognito on the field on Sunday and says that he knows from first-hand experience just how dirty Incognito is: According to Eason, only once in all the football games he’s ever played has an opponent spit on him, and that opponent was Incognito, during a 2010 game.

“I’ve never had a player or person in my life spit in my face,” Eason told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “It took everything in my power to restrain myself.”

Eason referenced the game two weeks ago when Texans defensive lineman Antonio Smith accused Incognito of trying to injure his ankle. The NFL looked at the footage and didn’t fine Incognito but did fine Smith $21,000 for kicking Incognito.

“He basically tried to break Antonio’s leg,” Eason said of Incognito. “Antonio got fined because he had to kick the guy off of him and [the NFL] did nothing to him. Usually players who do that are the non-athletic guys who really can’t block people so they play dirty.”

Incognito has defended himself as a tough and physical — but not dirty — player. Eason says Incognito crosses the line, which makes Eason “really excited for the opportunity to play against the guy.” But Eason says he’ll be smart enough not to retaliate, knowing that the retaliation is often what gets penalized — as Smith found out the hard way.link (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/29/nick-eason-on-richie-incognito-dirty-non-athletic-cant-block/)
