Columnist comments on the New York Giants and Icewatergate

Here is the link to the column


On the surface, this isn’t a ridiculously egregious act of hazing, but it’s unnecessary hazing nonetheless. It’s horrible from a public relations standpoint for the Giants, especially with new initiatives to stop bullying being implemented in a countless amount of school districts across the country.

From a football standpoint, I don’t see how this builds team camaraderie whatsoever.
