Re "Incognito apologizes to Martin, others" (Sports, Feb. 19): "No hard feelings :)" in Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito's Twitter message sums it all up.

Only a narcissistic jerk believes he gets to say "no hard feelings" after his bullying. Are you kidding? Any chance that his teammate Jonathan Martin and other vilely harassed players and staff might feel there's lingering "hard feelings"?

Perpetrators of emotional violence always want to "put the whole thing behind" them -- wish to wash it all under the rug and hear there's "no hard feelings." They don't feel they should be accountable for their actions, nor do they care a bit about others' wellbeing and feelings.

The general public has no idea how many other professional athletes are narcissistic jerks. The NFL has an opportunity here to sanction Incognito so he does have some "hard feelings."
