Richie Incognito, who was at the center of a bullying scandal in 2013 when he was with the Dolphins and was later the heart of an investigation performed by Ted Wells, had some harsh words for Wells. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL justice system on Saturday.
Speaking with Newsday, Incognito, who was suspended for his role in what came to be known as Bullygate, was asked about the Goodell’s power when it came to things like Deflategate.
“I just think it’s bogus, the whole system in how it’s set up with Roger and the complete, absolute power he has,” Incognito said of Goodell. “He has so much power and he hires independent investigators who come in and are obviously not independent. They come in with an agenda and they come in looking to find facts to back up their argument. All the facts are slanted in their favor.
“I think with Roger, with so much power, just keeps fumbling over independent investigations and making everything public,’ he said. ‘I think it just needs to be a more concise system. Roger can’t be the judge, jury and executioner on this thing. I understand league discipline.”
In his case, Incognito said Wells “came in with a mission against me,” and that Tom Brady is undergoing the same treatment now.
“Ted Wells came in slanted against me and everything in his report was slanted against me,” he said. “There were some things in there that would have helped my cause that were left out.
“You see that in Brady’s case. There’s a lot of stuff that got left out. There’s a lot of misinformation.”
Richie is 100% right and I have been saying the same thing all along. It’s a total sham that Goodell plays judge, jury and executioner. And then when you bring in an “independent investigator” and pay said person millions of dollars, of course they are gong to say whatever you want them to. If Goodell paid Wells and came back with something other than what Goodell wanted him to, Goodell would just find some other “independent investirgator” to say whatever he wants him to. In Goodell’s court, its whatever he says goes and if you don’t submit to him, he will make you pay.. F U Roger.. It’s going to be epic when Brady gets off in court… Boomshakalaka indeed!
