Boys will be boys. The Giants are making headlines on Monday morning and it's not for anything they've done on the field -- not even their 26-3 win over the Jets on Saturday. It all has to do with second-year player Prince Amukamara, third-year player Jason Pierre-Paul, an ice bath and punter Steve Weatherford's video skills. Video of Pierre-Paul apparently hazing of Amukamara was posted by Weatherford on his Twitter account. It has since been removed (and Weatherford has tweeted an apology), but the damage was done. "Yeah, um, well, I mean, I just don't get it. I don't understand...

Prince Amukamara Hazing Video Shouldn't Be a Big Deal, Backlash Actually Quite Ridiculous

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...

Prince Amukamara Thrown In Cold Tub By Jason Pierre-Paul

It’s strange that this would happen when Amukamara is no longer a rookie, so it couldn’t be hazing, right?  JPP and Prince could have just been messing around, but it makes you wonder if there is an underlying disagreement between the players.  Prince obviously was not happy being thrown in the tub, and luckily for the Giants he wasn’t hurt.Nonetheless, these are the types...

Justin Tuck defends Prince Amukamara being throw into cold tub

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...

Prince Amukamara thrown into cold tub

New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford took a video of defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul carrying cornerback Prince Amukamara to the cold tub and tossing him in. I wonder what caused JPP to toss the Prince in the cold tub. And I wonder what Giants head coach Tom Coughlin thinks of this.

Jason Pierre-Paul dumped Prince Amukamara into an ice tub for reasons unknown

Stuff like this happens all the time in NFL locker rooms, only it’s called hazing, and it’s usually rookies on the receiving end of pranks perpetrated by team veterans.  So it’s a little odd to see second year DB Prince Amukamara get carried down a hallway hulking 6-foot-5, 280 pound DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and it’s even odder seeing Amukamara’s reaction to getting tossed...

Giants insist they weren't hazing

While they understand the public's concern over what might be perceived as an apparent hazing incident involving Prince Amukamara, several New York Giants insist that throwing the second-year cornerback into a tub of ice water was a football tradition and not bullying. Amukamara and Jason Pierre-Paul, the Pro Bowl defensive end who threw him into the metal ice tub, said Monday...

New York Giants’ Steve Weatherford Apologizes for Posting Prince Amukamara Video

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. Not only did this further escalate an incident that did not need any media...

Giants' prank video has Coughlin concerned

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is investigating an Internet video that shows a prank in which Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul dumps teammate Prince Amukamara into a tub of ice. The video was tweeted by punter Steve Weatherford and contains some unsavory language. It shows Pierre-Paul carrying Amukamara, a cornerback, on his shoulder and tossing him head-first into...
