Found August 16, 2012 on Unathletic:
PLAYERS: Carson Palmer
TEAMS: Oakland Raiders
First it was Carson Palmer with the Raiders. Then you see it this week on Hard Knocks at Dolphins camp. Yes my friends, the Dong Haircut is taking over in rookie hazing. Pretty funny. I give Carson Palmer the nod for barber after he stinks this season with the Raiders.

Tommy Kelley on the Oakland defense: “People are going to have a hard time dealing with us”

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly believes that the Raiders defense isn’t the same one that finished 2011. The Oakland defense was 29th in the NFL in yards allowed and 31st in giving up touchdowns.

Raiders back at it with brutal rookie hazing haircuts (Pictures)

If you’re an NFL rookie who thinks you have it bad, just be thankful you don’t play in Oakland. We don’t really know if their rookies actually get the worst haircuts or if they simply do a great job of publicizing it, but any rookie who plays for the Raiders might as well completely shave their own head before training camp begins. Otherwise, there’s no guarantee you won’t...

Ryan Mathews Ready By Week 1?

Gonna take some time to heal Juan… Ryan Mathews says there is ‘no doubt’ that he will play week 1 against the Oakland Raiders.  Well, I have doubts.  It’s good to hear a player have confidence and that he may ‘ahead of schedule’ on his rehab, but as Norv Turner said “Ryan is NOT a Doctor.”  I have laid out my draft plan for Mathews and still think he can provide...

Cardinals Beat the Raiders in Injury-Plagued Contest

Under the friday night lights, the Oakland Raiders hit the University of Phoenix field to battle against Arizona.

Dong ‘Cut Is The New Default Hazing Ritual

We saw Dolphins rookie Josh Samuda get the dong haircut treatment on “Hard Knocks” last night, to the great entertainment of his teammates and the withering, frowny disgust of Joe Philbin. Since players are now discouraged from the more physical forms of hazing, such as taping a guy to a goalpost overnight and clubbing him with a bag of frozen oranges, the dong haircut is probably...

Jacoby Ford Leaves Game Early with Foot Injury

Jacoby Ford went down in the first half of the Oakland Raiders game vs. Arizona.  He caught a 9 yard pass from Carson Palmer and got up very gingerly.  He limped off the field and at first refused the help of the trainers.  He looked to be very frustrated, which usually means the player knows [...]

NFL Rookie Hazing: Giants Tape Up Rueben Randle, Throw WR In Ice Pool

Rueben Randle left LSU after his junior season for the 2012 NFL draft. He gets passed over in the 1st round but is eventually plucked in the 2nd by the Super Bowl champion Giants. Seems like a perfect scenario. Rueben has to figure this isn’t the Bengals, Raiders or Dolphins so things should go smoothly. And then rookie hazing day comes along. Guess who’s going for an ice bath...
