ESPN Drops Ball Bigtime with NFL Rookie Hazing; Yahoo’s Les Carpenter talks sense

From Matt Deeg:

Hank – did you see Herm Edwards’ comments about this?  Watch his video
commentary.  Basically, he says Bryant should have gone along with it
so worse things wouldn’t happen (little knowing that also by going
along with it, he’s encouraging worse things _to_ happen).  Also, the
other commentator asks if hazing is too harsh a term.  All of these
things just show how our students and world is influenced.
