Dolphins Harassment Case: Did Team Pay Off Incognito Harassment Victim?

According to this police report, Incognito harassed a 34 year old African American female volunteer at the Dolphin annual Fins Weekend Golf Tourney on May 18, 2012 –  a few months before being selected to the team’s “Leadership” Council.

Here’s what he did:

While performing her duties, she was approached by one of the Dolphins players Richie Incognito. According to her, Mr. Incognito had been drinking and was actingvery inappropriate towards her. Ms.  states that Mr. Incognito used his golf club to touch her by rubbing it up against her vagina, then up her stomach then to her chest. He then used the club to knock a pair of sunglasses off the top of her head. After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying “Let it rain, Let it Rain!” He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face. 

Most damningly for the Dolphins is this little bit of information (emphasis mine):

The woman, who is black, told several media outlets she has declined to talk because she had signed a confidentiality agreement.

So it appears that the Dolphins paid the woman off to keep her quiet.  We don’t know that for sure but why else would she have signed a confidentiality agreement?

There will be a lot of turnover in the Dolphin organization before this is done.  We are only seeing the beginning…
