07:10 AM ET 11.14 | Many, from Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to a good portion of NFL fans, believe the team's scandal is an important issue, but not all. [At] least one Dolphins coach feels otherwise. The coach was overheard saying outside the team's training facility Wednesday: "This is the most overblown story." Then, making obvious what he was discussing, the coach added: "Everybody knows Richie [Incognito] has a past." Those remarks came in stark contrast to the tone struck by Ross on Monday night. Ross, who said he was "appalled" by reports of abuse, took the issue seriously enough to ask NFL special counselor Ted Wells to investigate his franchise. He has also formed two committees to determine what needs to change inside the locker room.

The media (ESPN!) tried to stir the racial pot over and over and over again with reading the text trying to get this story to take on another dimension.

I think the Coach's coaching credentials most been highly overblown about him - to land this job, because if this is what he thinks he's an idiot.

It's been overblown from the beginning.....a non story 20 years ago but with today's sensitivity to every **** thing....

Go into your workplace and make this same racial slur to a black person and I am willing to bet you will be fired on the spot.......which you should be no-place for this in todays society.

I wonder if the (unnamed) coach is the OL coach, who probably had a hand in directing Incognito to "toughen up" Martin.

It's over-blown man... Football is about X's and O's.... That's it.

America is SO quick to preach and practice being "politically correct" when it is in fact one of the most traditionally barbaric countries in the world yo.

It's a different culture altogether and this all should have been kept in and dealt with in-house.

Been around many Pro sports locker rooms in my life when I was working and I can tell you this didn't go on to this extent.......your the one that needs a reality check and maybe little more common sense.

.......and when its all over with Incognito will not be out of a job and I would think if the OL coach put him up to it will be out all so , and another team most likely won't want Incognito because of him disrupting the locker room and the headaches he could bring.

What used to be said in person is now tweeted or e-mailed, leaving an electronic "paper trail" that gets spread around. You can't do that without having it recorded and over-analyzed.

Remember that next time you text. Big Brother is watching.
