    Miami players may have harassed team staffer

    Miami players may have harassed team staffer

    Two sources say that Dolphins players made ethnic jokes about team employee and crude sexual remarks about the employee's wife Jason Cole

    The problems for the Miami Dolphins may soon extend beyond player-on-player harassment. According to two sources, suspended guard Richie Incognito and at least one other player mocked the ethnic background of a team staff member and made crude jokes about the staff member’s wife.

    According to one of the sources, Incognito would sometimes dress in garb from the staff member’s culture and then make profane jokes about that culture. A second source said that at least one other player joined in on the antics, creating an extremely uncomfortable environment for the staff member.

    Worse, Incognito said on a number of occasions that the staff member’s wife had sexual relationships with several members of the team.

    The most troubling element to this is that the behavior was done in view of other team staff members and was allowed to go on without being curtailed by team management or front-office staff.

    That failure to monitor the situation could create further legal problems for Dolphins management, which will be hard-pressed to claim it was unaware of the workplace environment. The NFL is currently investigating the matter. Attorney Ted Wells has been appointed to conduct the inquiry.

    A Dolphins spokesman did not immediately respond to a request to comment. Wells has asked the team and players to refrain from discussing the investigation.

    This probably isn't uncommon in locker rooms, but it couldn't come at a worse time for Incognito and the Dolphins.

    I'm betting this team employee didn't consider Incognito an honorary member of his culture.
