NFL to Investigate Alleged Culture of Bullying Among Miami Dolphins

Accusations of financial abuse, racial slurs


The National Football League has launched an inquiry into alleged locker-room bullying at the Miami Dolphins, including claims that one junior player was racially abused and that lower-paid newcomers were expected to finance the expensive luxury lifestyles of multi-millionaire teammates.

Club officials suspended Richie Incognito, a senior offensive guard, for "conduct detrimental to the team" after receiving a formal complaint from representatives of Jonathan Martin, a young player who walked out during a training session a week ago and who has not returned to Miami since.
