You’d be surprised how many people defended Richie for that and used Martin having a mental breakdown years later as proof that it was all bs. You know despite Richie’s history and all.

 

A friend of mine played college football with Colton Schmidt (the bills punter). Apparently Richie and my buddy are friendly and I've been told he is a super nice guy .. not sure what to make of it but my friend is adamant that he is a good dude. 

He has had a rep as a dirty player for a very long time. I don't believe he used racial slurs like the jags players accused, but I don't think he's some teddy bear either. 

He needs... Something

Martin is just as much a headcase as Richie is if not moreso.

Former Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito has issued an apology to Mike Zimmer and deleted his tweets from earlier in the day calling the Minnesota Vikings head coach a “f–king liar” for saying the team wasn’t interested in his services.

I would also like to apologize to Coach Mike Zimmer. My bad dude! Tony was a father figure to me. Still dealing with his loss.

He is, but he was never the trouble maker Richie was and people wanted to believe he was a softy who blew Richie’s frat boy mentality out of proportion

Guy with obvious temper/mental issues dealing with extreme tragedy and greed of private businesses looking to capitalize on emotional misfortune of others is a very, very, very bad combination.

Wow... Crazy that he was arrested at his own fathers funeral... No idea what the funeral home did to send a guy off the edge like this.

I feel for Richie and hope he gets the help he needs. It's like the guy doesn't know what to do with his life without football in it and now he lost someone very important in his life. Very sad.

He is clearly suffering from a personality disorder this was evident going back to his Miami days, he was good at hiding it in Buffalo but the man is clearly mentally unwell and needs help.

Personality disorder + CTE + family death + clearly not taking whatever medication helped get him normalized for 3 years in BUF = Potential for really bad stuff.

Hope he gets help. Kid has all my empathy until he harms someone else. He hasn't done that, but it sure could happen at this rate.

Man I hope he gets help. He's gone so far off the deep end that it isn't even right to bash the guy anymore. He needs some serious help fast otherwise I wouldn't be shocked if something major happened in his life in the next 5 years.

The least surprising part of this is that Richie Incognito's dad lived in Scottsdale.
