Dolphins owner appalled by bullying scandal

Posted: Updated:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has broken his silence on the bullying scandal that has engulfed his team, saying he's appalled by Jonathan Martin's allegations of daily harassment by teammates.

Ross says he plans to meet with Martin on Wednesday at an undisclosed location and that he has been in touch with the tackle by text.

The owner vowed before Monday night's game between the Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get to bottom of the allegations and create a locker room culture that "suits the 21st century."

Ross was joined by team president and chief executive officer Tom Garfinkel.

The NFL is investigating Martin's allegations against teammates, including Richie Incognito. Martin is with his family in California to undergo counseling for emotional issues. Incognito has been suspended indefinitely.

    Bo Wallace threw four touchdowns passes in a sloppy season opener, and No. 18 Mississippi pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State 35-13 on Thursday night.
    For much of the night, it was tough to watch. Mississippi hardly looked like the 18th-ranked team in the country. Boise State in no way resembled the program that used to beat the big boys with such regularity.

    Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziel's single-game passing record with 511 yards and No. 21 Texas A&M beat No. 9 South Carolina 52-28 on Thursday night, ending the Gamecocks' 18-game home win streak.
    Kenny Hill looked more than ready to replace Johnny Manziel on the field. He is still getting used to the attention that goes along with the job.
