Bully Feels ‘Betrayed’ By The Bully

Richie Incognito feels “shocked” and “betrayed” by Jonathan Martin.
Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins indefinitely last Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team after Martin presented evidence — including threatening voice mails and text messages — to the team, the NFL and the NFL Players Association.
“It’s probably a combination of totally blindsided and a bit betrayed,” the source told ESPN of Incognito’s current state of mind. “He’s shocked. He can’t believe this happened and thinks it probably could have been avoided.”
Incognito is now being slammed by other NFL players.
The most damning news of all came from Josh Samuda, a rookie with the Dolphins in 2012 before being released. He spoke of a “code’’ that allowed Dolphins veterans to do whatever they wanted to the rookies in training camp, but it had to cease once the season began.
Samuda said Incognito broke the code by harassing Martin beyond his rookie season.
“You pay your dues,’’ Samuda said. “You prove you can play and then you don’t get joked on, don’t get s–t on. But you have to prove your status.”
