The Miami Dolphins have become an embarrassment thanks to the controversy involving  players Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin, says Jared Max, a former 1050 ESPN radio host in New York.

"The Dolphins to me are becoming right now —  and I feel badly for Dolphins fans because I have some good friends who are Dolphins fans — the embarrassment of the NFL," Max told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



In one of the most publicized sports scandals of the year, Incognito was suspended for allegedly bullying Martin with threats, vulgarities, and racial slurs so upsetting that Martin walked out on the team.

Max says some of the raucous behavior comes with the culture that is built around the rough and tumble world of professional sports.

"Think of almost the mentality that it must take to be a professional football player. This is what makes it kind of so much of a hypocrisy, because it's a tough-man sport," he said.

"As fans, think about what we hear in the crowd, things that we might even yell at the TV — knock the snot out him and much worse than that that comes out. There's a brutality to the sport that we do inherently love … Football is football. It is what it is."
