(1.) Where was New York media last week when Giants rookie wide receiver Rueben Randle was bound with tape and thrown into a ice pool (uploaded by Corey Webster)? (2.) Tom Coughlin suddenly has an issue with locker room antics reaching social media? (3.) What’s worse: throwing a helpless guy into an ice pool or dunking Prince Amukamara, who has use of his hands to get out of the pool?

(4.) Is Jason Pierre-Paul just a bully?

Of course the New York media is suddenly asking questions about the Giants hazing because Steve Weatherford uploaded a video and Prince is speaking out about being dropped in the ice pool.

Of course this suddenly concerned Coughlin.

“I’m learning about that today,” Coughlin said in a conference call with reporters Sunday afternoon. “I really didn’t have any information about that until maybe an hour before this conference call. I am going to look into it and talk to the parties involved.

“There may have … as I’m understanding it, there were some parts of it that were inappropriate. In no way is anything that occurs within this family or within our group should that be a part of any social media aspect. So I am going to address that strongly because I spent a little time on that this preseason. I will look into that further.”

Jason Pierre-Paul has been in the NFL exactly two full seasons. Prince Amukamara has one year of experience. It seems that rookies get the tape treatment and the one-year vets just get thrown in to toughen them up.

Makes total sense to us.
