Bills LT vouches for ‘racist’ Richie Incognito
Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue has accused Bills left guard Richie Incognito of using racial slurs during Sunday’s playoff game. Incognito has been true to his surname since the allegations emerged.
A teammate, however, has vouched for Incognito. Left tackle Dion Dawkins, who like Ngakoue is African-American, took to Twitter to defend Incognito.
“Just for the world to know, everyone always tryna put some bad thing on [Incognito] i was next to my guy the entire game and the entire season and believe me, if he was saying some racist stuff I would have been the first to let him know that was out of line,” Dawkins said on Twitter. “Cut The BS.”
Sure, it is possible Ngakoue is making the entire story up, even after a victory–but Incognito’s history isn’t on his side. And for Dawkins to stay he were to know about the racial slurs, sorry but even though you line up to Richie every play, you aren’t holding hands standing next to him during every moment of the game. Guys who were inches apart quickly are yards apart, and they are otherwise a bit too distracted to be listening to whatever a teammate may be saying in a scrum with another player in another area of the field.
In Richie’s defense, he has been a model citizen during his time with the Bills, but he has proven via past behavior that he definitely would have the capacity to do something like that.
