09:11 AM ET 11.10 | In his first interview since being suspended last week, Richie Incognito admitted to spewing racially charged words at Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin -- but insisted he's no bully. "This isn't an issue about bullying -- this is an issue of my and Jon's relationship," Incognito told "Fox NFL Sunday." "You can ask anybody in the Miami Dolphins locker room, `Who had Jon Martin's back the absolute most -- and they will undoubtedly tell you me." Martin left the team nearly two weeks ago and has alleged to be the victim of relentless harassment by his fellow offensive lineman Incognito, who has a history of violence. Incognito was apologetic for uttering "bad words," but said offensive racial talk is commonplace in NFL locker rooms. "All this stuff coming out -- it speaks to the culture of our locker room, it speaks to the culture of our closeness. it speaks to the culture of our brotherhood," Incognito said. "And the racism, the bad words, you know that's what I regret most. But that is a product of our environment and that's something we use all the time."

What about your bathroom habits, Bro?

The first five threads in the NFL section are all about Incognito and/or the Dolphins. I think we've got this topic covered, interns.

It's just typical locker room behaviour for big dumb cave men. This same pecking order happens in warehouses, construction sites and work places the world over. Martin should have handled his business in the locker room and gained the respect of the neanderthals.

Martin has battered pansy syndrome.

I find it difficult to believe that white players drop the N-Word in the locker room "all the time".

OK, the NFL can stop all of the investigations -- if it is on Fox then it must be true, right? With friends like Incognito who needs hemorrhoids!

The New York Post is just happy the J-E-T-S have been replaced as the league's most dysfunctional team.

Yep. And in professional sports you'll find the biggest thugs and bullies from the toughest neighborhoods.
