Retweet of the Day - November 4, 2013

Miami Dolphins rookie offensive tackle Jonathan Martin was excused from the team last week to tend to emotional issues, as reported by ESPN. As more details emerged, like with any strange story, there was more than met they eye. Reports and rumors trickled in over the weekend that there may have been a hazing or bullying situation that triggered Martin's departure from the team.

My this morning, more pieces of the puzzle were filled in. Multiple news outlets reported that Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito was suspended indefinitely from the team. Among the allegations were racial epithets, threats, and intimidation by Incognito pressuring Martin to give him $15,000 to finance a trip for Incognito and other players to Las Vegas.

Richie Incognito is among the worst of the NFL's repeat offenders. He is consistently voted one of the dirtiest players in the league by his peers in NFL player surveys. He has several high-profile personal foul penalties under his belt and a rap sheet as long as his arm with disciplinary issues and citations by the NFL office. He's a goon, a bad guy.

Life often imitates art. Incognito, both through his bullying behavior and appearance is reminiscent of an antagonist from a classic science fiction movie series, the Back to the Future trilogy. Today's retweet, by: Howard Camerik ‏(@HowardCamerik

"BREAKING: Seeking new leadership following suspension of Richie Incognito, #Dolphins sign Biff Tannen."

Just sayin'....
