Prince Amukamara figured he would be a point of reference in the Giants locker room on Monday. With an ugly bullying situation going on in Miami, one that has caused the indefinite suspension of one player and the departure of another, the Giants cornerback tried to place himself inside the shoes of Jonathan Martin, the alleged victim. Amukamara dealt with a hazing situation back in 2012 when a video of him being dunked into a cold tub by Jason Pierre-Paul was posted online. "Yeah, I definitely put myself in Jonathan's shoes to see if it was identical to my situation and just see his comments," Amukamara said. "The players here, we all have a great relationship," Amukamara said. "If I would have complained or told coach or brought it out, if I would have made a public outcry about it or something like that, I think it would be saying that it was bullying and people would have a problem with it. "But after I was thrown in the tub everything was great with the players, so it definitely wasn't bullying." Amukamara said what happened didn't change the way he dealt with players or went about his day so he didn't consider it a bullying issue. As of Monday afternoon, he wasn't fully caught up to speed on the Martin situation, either. He had heard snippets coming from various reports. He agreed, though, that there is a fine line as a younger player between sticking up for yourself and falling in line. Terrell Thomas said that Amukamara was talking back too much, for example, and that's why he was dunked in the tub. "They still give me crap but the only thing is now I give it back, and because of that, I know it's not one-sided," Amukamara said.
