The buck should stop here with Roy Williams and Dez Bryant: Pro rookie hazing and humiliation must stop

The ridiculous practice of rookie hazing in the NFL ought to stop with Roy Williams. Dez Bryant is one of a new generation of players who have come up through the high school and college ranks hearing that hazing is wrong and that it sets a bad example for sport and high school students. If the Dallas coach or front office does not step in, fans should send in their support of Dez Bryant. He has my backing 100 percent. And Roy Williams, you want to be treated like a veteran? Act like one. Show some class.
