Buzz: More hot water for Incognito?

The allegations of racial abuse and bullying swirling around Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito took a stunning turn on Monday when details of a reported voice mail left for teammate Jonathan Martin were reported.

We know the Dolphins are taking it seriously. They’ve suspended Incognito indefinitely and coach Joe Philbin says the team has asked Roger Goodell to help with the probe. In fact, the Miami Herald is saying a team source insists Incognito will never suit up for the Dolphins again.

Meanwhile, Martin is reportedly undergoing therapy in California as he remains away from the team.

Now, while we’re still processing what may have gone down in Miami and the implications of Incognito’s alleged voice-mail threats to Martin, some other elements to the story are starting to crop up.

First up is a video posted on TMZ (Warning: Graphic language from a shirtless Incognito) that starts off with Incognito using a racial slur as he announces the presence of teammate Mike Pouncey in a South Florida bar before stomping around the bar and yelling semi-incoherently.

Again, graphic language is used in this video, but you can watch it here.

But another interesting story is floating around out there thanks to some impressive Internet sleuthing from Deadspin and the folks on FinHeaven, a popular Dolphins message board.

We obviously can’t say for sure, but it sure looks like Incognito’s dad, Richie Incognito Sr., is using an anonymous account to stick up for his little boy.

The account wishes a deadly disease on the Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland and Philbin, dismisses Martin and Mike Pouncey as drug users, claims Martin has tried repeatedly to commit suicide and cites the use of the N-word in rap music to deflect any criticism of Incognito using it.

None of this is likely to help Incognito’s case in the court of public opinion (or in any NFL disciplinary hearings for that matter) but it does leave one nagging question.

Shouldn’t a couple of guys named Incognito be a little better at keeping a low profile?

Now, for some links:

• Anthony Bennett was the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Through four games of his Cleveland Cavaliers career, he has yet to make a field goal. It must be his Twitter followers' fault.

• The World Series of Poker Main Event November Nine (no, they really call it that) is down to its final two, the champion and $8.3 million winner to be decided on Tuesday night. Either way, Jay Farber and Ryan Riess are multi-millionaires, as the runner-up pockets more than $5 million.

• MLB awards season is officially upon us.

• Remember those problems the A's were having with sewage leaking into the dugout? Well, now they have new stadium concerns, and it could lead to the team to actually sharing AT&T Park in San Francisco with the Giants if, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "Coliseum officials don't come to terms on a new short-term lease for the team."

• On Monday night, the Anaheim Ducks beat the Rangers in New York 2-1 to bring their season-long eight-game road trip to an end. And here's one Duck who was happy to be on the plane home:

And happy to see who was waiting for him when he finally got made it back:

• Dwight Howard returned to LA on Monday night. OK, it was against the Clippers, but apparently he angered Angelinos on both sides of the hoops aisle. And we thought Clippers fans would love anybody who burned the Lakers.

To make matters worse, the Rockets were run out of Staples Center.

At least we can count on this.

• Andre Iguodala and his new team — Golden State — played his old team on Monday. Remember this, Philly fans?
