The NFL is looking into bullying accusations involving Jonathan Martin and the Miami Dolphins. In the meantime, Richie Incognito has been suspended during the investigation. Now it appears the embattled offensive lineman has a vocal supporter who is trolling the internet: His father! Senior has been caught red handed posting on the FinHeaven forum as “idrd1994″ — and he has said some astonishing things.
Look below for 10 quotes from Richie Incognito Sr. You won’t believe your eyes.
Why do we think idrd1994 is his dad? First, he only posts about the Dolphins offensive line. Secondly, he posts frequently with inside knowledge of his son’s former teammates. Third, he talked about having a New Jersey upbringing, which fits the truth. Fourth, he says he lives in Arizona, which again checks out. Fifth, the birthdate he gave when registering with the message board matches. Sixth, an old online profile connects the username with his real name. Oh, and finally, “idrd” are the combined initials of his two sons and wife.
So, yeah, unless someone has been plotting to set him up for years, it’s him.
