Ross has idea of NFL scandal report contents

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross today confirmed the NFL report on the Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin workplace harrasment scandal will come out after the Super Bowl and he believes he knows some of the contents of the report.

"The report will be released after the Super Bowl," Ross said. "I have an idea what will be in it. I've been in communication with the NFL. I've spoken with [NFL investigator} Ted Wells who is handling the investigation.

"I haven't seen the report. I don't know exactly it's conclusions. I believe based on my conversations that ... well, let's put it this way, I don' want to really speculate. When it comes out, we'll do what has to be done but we've already ... in my mind I know what direction we're going. Stay tuned."

The Dolphins seem aware of what direction they will have to go to answer the report and that raises the following possibilities:

Incognito will not return to the team. He is a free agent and will not be re-signed by the Dolphins. It's also unlikely Martin will return to the Dolphins.

"I don't believe so," Ross said about the return of the players. Then he changed course.

"Well, I can't say that. I retract that statement so therefore I can't say that. I never said that," he said.

Too late, he soon learned.

"It's been tweeted?" he asked. "One is a free agent by the way and the other is on our roster, we claim right to him."

The reason Ross doesn't want to say publicly Martin won't return to the Dolphins is because the Dolphins will try to trade him. If the Dolphins say he's not coming back, Martin's value will be lessened. Of course, the entire NFL knows Martin isn't going to return to a locker room full of players who didn't show any fondness for him for leaving them during the season.

It is possible Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner could be implicated in the report. Turner obviously had direct interaction with Martin and Incognito on a daily basis. And the Dolphins seem to be guarding against a Turner suspension or loss of some kind by the recent hiring of former Houston Texans OL coach John Benton.

As you may recall, Ross said he would visit Martin during his press conference first addressing the scandal. That visit has not happened.

Ross also named a hurrily assembled committee to make recommendations on setting up guidelines on the locker room and workplace culture for the Dolphins. That committee has not met nor scheduled a meeting.

Interestingly, Martin has done a sitdown interview with Tony Dungy on the matter and it will air tonight. The timing is not what the NFL wants. And Dungy is part of the Dolphins committee.

Jordan is going to bulk up. He is a freak of nature. He has instinct and athleticism. Ireland left us with a present. You'll see soon enough.

Writer,

The Jordan trade to Miami wasn't consummated until the final seconds. There was really no way for Philly to get a negotiation done in time.

Puzzled, I can't remember if i smoked a joint. The Bronco and seahawk blogs are full of potheads. It's legal there. They don't fight they get along great.

The Broncos and Seahawks are in the SB BECAUSE they get stoned!! Rememeber Ricky Williams played his best STONED! If Florida legalizes marijuana the Dolphins will IMPROVE!

SHHHH !!! Don't tell anyone, that is DawnJoes plan for next year dude.

Brick house,

Smoke all the joints you want. I approve

Fovo, Chris Carter was an alcoholic who needed rehab before he began a career of greatness.
Mario Williams was better his first year than Jordan, and was allowed to play, thus getting the experience necessary to play. Houston was not a contender when Williams was drafted, he was thew #1 pick.
Jordan was not a top 3 pick, Ireland foolishly moved up to get him.

Who the He!! cares if Ireland was fired or resigned? He had way more misses than hits. Even the "hits" wouldn't be starting for 1/2 the teams in the league.
Our kicker was in the lower third of the league. The only "Hit" of 2013, so far.
When have the Fins had a REAL All Pro DRAFTED? Long? Pouncy, for 1 season?

Hickey better have a great draft, which for the Fins would be 2 starters on the O-Line BETTER than what is currently on the squad, and a starting CB or LB.

Fovo

But is he a 'FOOTBALL PLAYER'? I hope so but can't help but wonder. And nothing this pathetic coaching staff did last year answers that question!

Marco,

Have you overcome your fear of successful women yet?

BRICK, I say quit bogarting and pass it aroud. I looking at some Pot Stocks today, their cheap right now (except for HEMP which is about $75 a share) alot of the stocks are under a $1.00 a share. Take a thousand and take a chance. Pass the dubie Brick

around*

sig,

Like I said, not making excuses, but Jordan, a rookie, missed all of training camp recovering from shoulder surgery and reagrravated it during the season. They were wise to take it slow with him. Didn't Shanny teach us anything?


Out for dinner...

Maybe Ross smokes weed. That would explain his decision making...... Hey dawn You sexy little red head. i got some good sh*t. Want to take a ride in ear force one and get REALLY high. We can through Jeffy out the door like in that scar face movie.

I believe you're correct, but MOST teams KNOW whom they're going to select LONG before the bell rings. They would have been on the phone with the Raiders early on. Like Tannenbaum was when the Sanchez deal was made. Lucky Jets. LOL

Wow You guys are CLUELESS Eh?
Ross is giving away a quarter bag to each Dolphins Fan on home game days.It was Marc Anthony's idea Eh?

I would pay to see that Mile High ride, I'd have a camera on that pampas dic Ireland all the way to the ground, then I'd rewind and fast forward over and over again watching him keep slamming into the ground. I love him as much as he loved us fans

Anyone naive enough to think Ireland wasnt fired I have some ice in Alaska to sell ya LOL!

Ireland was offered resign or be fired. Thats getting fired for realistic purposes.

Good evening darling. Whats wrong tonight sexy girl, have you got the painters in ?

that would explain why Philbin gets a pass for last year. Rumour has it Ross owns a Teepee, and that himself and DawnJoe light up a fat one before games. Ireland was out the loop again on that one.

Turner is going to be implicated, that is why they hired Benton. he will be O-line coach once Turner is fired and he will be fired.

Nat. Maybe he was demoted and his EGO ! Exploded Eh?
A Parcels POS Eh?.Rememeber FATCELLS did not even LOOK at JT when he was taking a DUMP at Dolphins HQ Eh?

Puzzled, I like that idea. I need to get high before i come on here. That is the only way i can understand
Marcos posts.

Ape my friend.

You missed a good show earlier. Mark A-hole in Canada was telling us all how Thill was as good a QB as Russell Wilson, amazing stuff they smoke up there in Canuckland.

BTW, as was posted, the NFL is delaying the Bully-gate disclosure till AFTER the SB. The decision is over a month late in coming. Wouldn't that POSSIBLY mean, as I've stated several times, that it is far uglier in scope than has been speculated.
As someone born in Miami, lived there 21 years, I can also say as raunchy as it was in the 50's and 60's, it's far more raunchy now. Not exactly an atmosphere to encourage gentile behavior. After all these are highly competitive athletes, many with anger issues. If this report is accurate and unbiased, the facts unveiled may not be pretty.

I fervently hope this is NOT the case. I just went over 3 years of angst with my Canes.

I have a feeling that Ireland was implicated in the report. So Ross got rid of him. And that would explain why no one interviewed him for any job either.

I will keep it simple for you my friend. Just blink at the screen... one for yes... two for no.


Failbin doesn't like to play young rookie players?? He had no problem throwing THill to the wolves. The most important position on the team.

Something don't smell right. Failbin is a liar

Posted by: Puzzled | January 28, 2014 at 06:20 PM

Tannehill was not going to be the started, Garrard was but he got seriously injured.

Maybe if Ape smokd a fatty he wouldn't say "eh" after everything. Maybe he is really a tamed ape.

I have the munchies now and i forgot where i left my car keys.

Come Together by The Beatles, should have been played after the Hickey introduction tonight.

Clearly Ross was high, did anyone else see that ?

Turner is all over that report, he will be canned. that is why the Benton hire assistant OL coach my butt..

You mean his total incompetence and record number of draft busts had nothing to do with his firing?

I'd say his losing record and Dez Bryant comment would be enough.

Oh yeah 6 years 1 playoff game also would put that nail in his box.

A bunch of stoners, LOL.
This will hurt you guys, but back when i was at UM, we could purchase an OUNCE for $15 (Jamaican), $20 for Colombian Red, $25 gold.

Of course, I distanced myself from such things.
Weed, of course is why the UM marching band's lines were usually diagonal.

Posted by: Marco | January 28, 2014 at 07:24 PM

Well , the playoff game was strictly Parcells doing.

Learn more about Ross here.

Sorry Ear.

MARCO,They should have played some Miley cyrus. Picture Aponte dancing around the podium sticking a stuffed dolphin in her crotch and sticking out her tongue at Armando.

BHAAA HA HA !!! Oh boy I got that !!!

Maybe even Philbin in the Gimp suit from Pulp Fiction pointing at Mando like he was Butch from the movie.

Remember the scene..... you me (giggle giggle), I see the gimp suit is now the property of Mr Hickey, or is it Mr Hanky !!! HIGHDEE HO !!!

I live just north of Boston. It's so cold outside there is nothing to do but get stoned and wish i lived in south Florida.

Ross is a bumbling idiot.

Actually, no, the Dolphins weren't even in existence till 1966. First game, 30 yard line ticket, $20, I believe. Auer runs back the kickoff for a TD. Y'all know this.

Posted by: JJ | January 28, 2014 at 07:32 PM

Oh yeah, that one too. The asked him to fire himself if I remember correctly. Great guy, I hope he bumps into Philbin at games.

I've shout abuse at Philbin during the Jets game and was told to sit down by security, guess I got into it a bit too much, but he deserved it in a A-pipe that day.

I believe many fans would like to see Ross sell our team to someone else. He has no passion for the sport. Please put me on record in the opinion of those who would like to see this guy sell the team.
Football is about passion and Ross shows none of it.

Correct my friend. No-one wants to talk about the BS of those years except the brave.

Sensational boy !!!

Old dudes like Ross...and me get high on wine, usually a pretentious, grossly overpriced red from some crap hole in France. We display the bottle prominently so all can see how erudite we are. In reality, a decent $20 Cali wine is infinitely better.

I didn't see the Presser. So Ross was drunk?
Why would that be surprising?

"I don't believe so," Ross said about the return of the players. Then he changed course.
"Well, I can't say that. I retract that statement so therefore I can't say that. I never said that," he said.

You are a bit older than me, but its great to here that your love of the weed hasn't deminished your memory. That would have been cool to go to Dolphins games out of ya tree !!

Next season I may try it. Maybe the Dolphins Raiders game in London. Head down to Brixton, by the Green Leaf and then to Wembley..... high times !!!

Ross doesnt know what he said LMAO!

Just lit up some OG myself........

I'll share!

Dolphins changes look good to me, good job Ross. looks like a great offseason so far:

Ireland Gone - fired
Sherman gone - Fired
Turner gone soon - fired
Martin quit - hurrah
Incognito gone - FA/suspended
Edwards gone - to Vikings

Hickey - new GM
Bill Lazor - new OC/QB mentor
Benton - new OL coach
Duffner - new LB coach
Aponte - capologist only

everyone knows theie role now.

lot's of cap space still. lots of good young players still. I see the glass almost full.

what's not to be positive about.

Hmmm Martin giving an interview on his "harassment" close to the super bowl. . Another media play by the Martin family.

Ah yes the finer things in life, why not. You could also listen to some Brahms while sampling duck pate avec fig paste.

Ross looked high, I mean on some serious meds. You are right to say and why not. I bet he loves a drink with DawnJoe around the pool at his beach house in caribou.

I can see them swaying to Kokomo....afternoon delight, cocktails and moonlight nights.... ah sweet times.

I know everything my name is Ross and yeah folks I own the store at the corner of SW 37av and Coral Way on Miracle Mile cant you tell thats where I get my threads.Philbin shops there too I gave him carte blanche if you didnt know that card TRUMPS Visa Mastercard,Discover even American Express.
Ireland stocked up before he parted ways with the Dolphins.Sherman was a problem because he was Too fat to fit into most of the stock.New GM HICKey has requested an account for him and his immediate family.
Bloggers if you purchase a season ticket within the next 24 hours you get 15% off on anything thats right EVERYTHING.

Marco Ross and Aponte did try and lure one of NE's cheaters Eh?.Or did BB Send a mole Eh?

Add Coyle to the list please.

Coyle too Marco but I was just addressing the changes/upgrades so far.
