The New York Giants are like any other team when it comes to preseason rituals. Every team in sports adopts a certain amount of practical jokes for rookies to add to their locker room arsenal for the...
Prince Amukamara received an unexpected bath recently, but the New York Giants are hardly getting away squeaky clean. The practice of pranking rookies and forcing them to do stupid things dates back years. The practice of hazing a sophomore seems like a relatively new concept, but the G-Men have already mastered the art of the practice. Not everyone's onboard with their movement...
New York Giants second year cornerback Prince Amukamara has been getting the business lately from his teammates.
Last Saturday he experienced being tossed in a cold tub by Jason Pierre Paul. His Giants teammates are saying that was all in the name of tough love.

Perhaps even more disturbing than New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara being dumped into the cold-tub by Jason Pierre-Paul was that there was a video of it. Even more disturbing was that the video was made public by punter Steve Weatherford for other players, coaches, and fans alike to see and hear.

Prince: “Yeah, um, well, I mean, I just don’t get it. I don’t understand...
We're still trying to piece together why JPP decided to dunk the second-year cornerback into an ice bath but it looks like there might be some bad blood between the two.

The Giants don’t seem to be apologetic about hazing Prince Amukamara, they’re just sorry that their private locker room behavior became public.
“None of us condone bullying,” defensive end Justin Tuck told the media on Monday. “We just have to do a better job of being conscious of how that looks and how people can perceive it.”
Tuck then defended the hazing, suggesting...

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin did say that if this was a regular season game, JPP would be playing, they’re holding him out this week as...
It's grainy because it's so scandalous.When I saw a bunch of people Tweeting about New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford this morning, my first thought was, “Sloooooooooooow news day.” Or maybe he was abducted by intergalactic talking raccoons, in which case, awesome! And now that I know why people are buzzing about him, I think he’d probably prefer that some spaceships...
