Cheap Bruins Jerseys Authentic . - The Oakland Athletics say they are stopping negotiations to extend their lease at the Coliseum. An investigation into the racially charged Miami Dolphins bullying scandal detailed widespread harassment in the teams locker room that extended beyond the two players at the centre of the probe. The NFL-ordered report stated there was a "pattern of harassment" committed by at least three players and extended to two lineman and an assistant trainer, all targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. Lawyer Ted Wells released the report Friday, saying guard John Jerry and centre Mike Pouncey followed Richie Incognitos lead in harassing Jonathan Martin, who left the team in October. They threatened to rape his sister, called him a long list of slurs and bullied him for not being "black enough." In a statement emailed by a league spokesman, the NFL did not make any mention of possible punishment stemming from the case. The league only confirmed it had received the report and said it appreciated the Dolphins co-operation with the investigation. Wells said he does not intend to comment further. Martin is biracial, Incognito is white, and Jerry and Pouncey are black. Martins agent Kenneth Zuckerman said his client feels "vindicated" by the report. "He feels a great sense of relief," Zuckerman told The Associated Press. "Jonathan Martin is a great man and hes only shown me that he is very honest since the day I met him. He loves football and is eager to get back on the field, regardless of what team he plays for." Incognitos attorney, Mark Schamel, released a statement calling Wells report "replete with errors" and said that Martin "was never bullied by Richie Incognito or any member of the Dolphins offensive line." Incognito sent a tweet Friday night, saying: "You could not define me in 144 years let alone 144 pages Mr Wells. Thank you for your hard work and dedication." Martin, who has two years left on his contract with the Dolphins, declined interview requests. Incognito was suspended in November, but Pouncey and Jerry remained starters throughout the season. The report mentioned another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer who also routinely came under attack from the trio. Neither was identified in the report. The report chronicled Martins struggle to deal with a "pattern of harassment," including emotional text exchanges with his parents and a description of him crying in the bathroom after one particularly painful attack. Martin also told investigators that he "believed that trying to engage in a physical confrontation with these three -- whom he viewed as a united group -- would only make matters worse." The inquiry said Martin was taunted and ridiculed almost daily. After Martin left the team, Incognito boasted about "breaking Jmart" in a notebook the linemen used to tally fines and bonuses among themselves. When the investigation began, Incognito asked another player to destroy the book, saying "Theyre going to suspend me." The other harassed player was "subjected to homophobic name-calling and improper physical touching," while the assistant trainer, who was born in Japan, was subjected to racial slurs. "It was not diifficult to conclude that the Assistant Trainer and Player A were harassed, but the questions raised in Martins case were more complex, nuanced and difficult," the report says.dddddddddddd Although Wells concluded that Martin was abused by three teammates, the report said "they did not intend to drive Martin from the team or cause him lasting emotional injury." Evaluating Martins claims was difficult, "given his mental health issues, his possible heightened sensitivity to insults and his unusual, bipolar friendship with Incognito," the report said. "Nonetheless, we ultimately concluded that Martin was indeed harassed by Incognito, who can fairly be described as the main instigator." The report comes about three months after the league hired Wells to investigate the case, which prompted a national debate about hazing and workplace bullying. "To a great extent, Incognito dictated the culture," the report said. "We doubt that matters would have gotten so out of hand had Incognito not set a tone on the offensive line that made extremely vulgar taunting a typical form of communication." Dolphins offensive line coach Jim Turner didnt attempt to stop the behaviour and even took part in some of the taunting of "Player A," the report said. Several people interviewed told investigators that Turner gave Player A, a male sex doll as a gag gift around Christmas 2012. Turner told investigators he did not remember the incident, but investigators said they did not believe him. However, the report found no evidence that the Dolphins front office or head coach Joe Philbin was aware of the conduct Martin found abusive. The 6-foot-5, 312-pound Martin abruptly left the team Oct. 28. He was briefly hospitalized and then joined his family in California and underwent counselling for emotional issues. Incognito was barred from the seasons last eight games. Incognito expressed regrets about the racist and profane language he used with Martin, but said it stemmed from a culture of locker-room "brotherhood," not bullying. Martin has said he tried to be friends with Incognito. The two players traded more than a thousand text messages in a years span, and the teasing and vulgar banter went both ways. Martin also participated in the teasing of Player A, although investigators say he was simply trying to fit in with the other linemen. The report also mentioned Martin having suicidal thoughts. "Whether or not Incognito, Jerry and Pouncey fully appreciated the effect of their actions on Martin, there is no doubt that, from Martins perspective, their actions were abusive and hurtful," the report said. "We are not, however, in a position to evaluate Martins assertion that the abusive conduct of his teammates was, in fact, the exclusive triggering cause of his depression and contemplation of suicide." The NFL Players Association said it will review the findings closely, confer with players and all relevant parties involved. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said in a statement: "As an organization, we are committed to a culture of team-first accountability and respect for one another." ' ' '
