EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - OCTOBER 11: Head coach Tom Coughlin of the New York Giants looks on against the Oakland Raiders during their game on October 11, 2009 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Giants defeated the Raiders 44-7. (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)

(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.
