Ngakoue stands behind tweet, says Incognito “knows what he said”

Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue doesn’t remember if Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito used the N-word during Sunday’s game, but Ngakoue stood behind the accusation he made on social media about Incognito directing a racial slur at him. Ngakoue said it came after a running play.

“No, I don’t remember [if he used the N-word], but, you know, he said what he said,” Ngakoue said, via Michael DeRocco of ESPN. “He knows what he said. I don’t have to repeat it.”

An NFL spokesman said Monday the league was looking into Ngakoue’s claims.

Ngakoue said Incognito insulted his ethnicity. Ngakoue’s father is a native of Cameroon and his mother is from the West Indies.

“I’ve been playing this game since I was a little kid. You hear all types of stuff,” Ngakoue said. “Stuff’s not going to bother you, but somebody says something about your ethnicity, that’s really kind of taking it a little bit too far.

“I’m all with trash talk. It’s part of the game, but you can’t say certain things.”

Ngakoue first made his claim Sunday night on Twitter, saying Incognito was going to “have to come harder than some weak racist slurs.”

Several players from both teams said Monday they did not hear Incognito use a racial slur. Incognito was not available in the Bills’ locker room.

  1. Dear Mr. Ngakoue,

    People can, and WILL, say anything that will get under your skin. You have now publicly identified something that will, so be prepared for a LOT more of it.

    A closet Bills fan

  2. Wow. Grow up. It’s a mans game. We’re talking a physical game here. If I was playing I would be in your head calling you every name in the book. What said on the field stays on the field. Just saying.

  3. So Yannick Ngakoue is generally aware Incognito might have said something. Something that Ngakoue himself has said he doesn’t remember, only that he knows it was racist…

    Yeah, that sounds about what the threshold for what constitutes guilt in the NFL is today.

  4. I think they need to get replay guru Ron Riveron on this asap. He’ll get to the bottom of this scandal in the blink of an eye, just as soon as he determines what a catch is.

  5. I moved to Florida 12 years ago and I’ve tried really hard to like at least one of these teams, but on the rare occasion when they aren’t underachieving, they’re such terrible whiners…er, winners.

  6. This is pretty hard to believe since Incognito has a clean history. It’s not like he has multiple incidents on his record…

  7. Seems to me that Incognito has done a heck of a job repairing his reputation, playing hard and being a pro for what now, 3 years since the “incident”.

    What amazes me is how so many of you forget what real jerks we all were at 20 to 25 years old. Not always but don’t tell me you didn’t get drunk, get in a fight, smoke some weed or insult a woman at some point at that age.

    Now we’re holding 6th graders to the adult standard of civility. Give the guy a break with your hate and by the way, how would you have acted at 25 with a boat load of money and summers off?

    Bills Mafia STANDS BEHIND Richie.
    End of story.

    Bills made the playoffs after however many years with a lucky Bengals play. We get it, but can we please end this cartoonish Bills Mafia nonsense. The game is over, you lost and America has moved on. Do us all a favor and do the same.

    Nope. We don’t need to stop. We have taken crap for years to the point of belittling our city and making this personal so under no circumstance do we need to stop. Is it a bit much? Yep!!! But maybe next time you will not take personal shots at people and a community over a football game.

  10. It was so offensive and he doesn’t remember? Sounds like a phony accusation to me. The league should investigate him and sanction him for making a false accusation. If Incognito is innocent of this then why shouldn’t the NFL punish Ngakoue with the same punishment Incognito would have had.

  11. and yet back in the day , hank aaron got frigging hundreds of death threats as he got closer to 714 home runs, and didnt say much. this clown is so insulted over the possible use of 1 word? give me a break.. incognito should say in response “i did not say it you bug dumb poopy face”

    You’re literally whining about the Florida teams whining. I think my head just exploded.

  13. Wasn’t Incognito the guy that created a racist locker room in Miami? I remember when the dolphins admitted it was true and accepted their punishment for their acceptance of racism in the locker room.

  14. What a bunch of little kids the NFL has now. A bunch of whiners. He called me #$@^ & *%$# . Tattletales. Enough of that type behavior. Settle it on the field like men.

  15. Seems like any potential element of our lives could end up being racism. The fact that Incognito’s African-American teammate backs him up is all that I needed to hear. Problem is that the press loves these race-baiting stories.

    No, it’s pretty much that way everywhere. All it takes today is an accusation. Social media and hypersensitivity to “microaggression” has left us soft and helpless.

  17. Check out all the Bills fans jumping in to protect their boy!

    The guy has always been a scumbag. Bills fans think he is a choir boy. Joke

    Where is the EVIDENCE

    —————-
    I think we are ok on evidence, Im pretty sure he did. Im just not sure why this is a story. These guys say and do whatever they can to get in their opponent’s head. Ngakoue just gave away what works on him so I would expect he will get more of the same next week.

  19. “I don’t remember”. Wonderful, that is just wonderful. I can envision myself saying the same thing when asked about this guy come next season. “Who? I don’t remember”.

  20. I have it on good authority that what Incognito said is this:

    “Merry New Year!!! Ah! HaHaHaHaHa!!!”

    Then he called him a Camergoon.

    True story.
