It's beginning to look like Richie Incognito's use of racial slurs was habitual. Warren Sapp, the former Miami Hurricanes great, faced Incognito only once in his NFL career but says that during that game, Incognito called him the N-word while on the field.

Sapp, however, didn't seem particularly offended by it, but adds he would have been if the incident had happened off the field.

Sapp recalled the incident on The Dan Patrick Show this morning.

"One time he kicks me in a game and calls me the N-word," Sapp said. "I looked at him and said, 'Oh, you want me to punch you in the mouth so they kick me out of the game?'

"I looked at him and said, 'Really? That's all you got?'" Sapp continued.

Patrick asked Sapp to clarify about a white man using the term, and Sapp said he understands it was a cheap insult used in a football game but would be offended if it was used in the locker room.

"He only wants to get me kicked out. He don't want to fight. Because the only thing he got to do is call me after the football game, just come over to the locker room and say it after the game. Now we've got a real situation."

Sounds like Martin was too uppity and well spoken being a Stanford grad and all for the Thugs (Incognito) and the like of the Dolphins.  Problem is would you rather have a team full of thugs that wins and can properly protect your quarterback or a team full of intelligent softies like Martin?  I think along with most fans I would rather win.

I for one [white man] [and I expect many more before this is over] hereby inform all that any word that other Americans use,... I can and will also use whenever I deem it appropriate.   Example of appropriate use of the word:  see Chris Rock UTube: http://youtu.be/f3PJF0YE-x4  

Another example:  MAKES ME WANNA HOLLERbyNathan McCall [born 1955]                 [Prof Afro Am studies - Emory U]Published 1994page 12

“Every now and then, if one of us dared to cut up in public, Mama would yank him firmly by one arm, pull him to within an inch of her face, and whisper through clenched teeth, "Stop showing your color. Stop acting like a njgger!"

Um...can we PLEASE have Incognito back. I don't care who he calls what or what he calls who...if the guys on the dolphins don't care and they are black, then i definitely don't care. Martin couldn't handle football...Incognito obviously can. I NEED AN OFFENSIVE LINE!!!! NOT A SENSITIVITY TRAINING SO FEELINGS AREN'T HURT!!!! THIS ISN'T BASEBALL!
