NY Giants head coach TOM COUGHLIN likes to run a tight ship. Dude doesn’t like his team engaging in social media or creating off-the-field distractions. So when a video of Giants cornerback PRINCE AMUKAMARA being dumped into an ice tub by teammate JASON PIERRE-PAUL surfaced on the internet on Sunday, one can quite imagine what Coughlin’s reaction will be…
Pierre-Paul carries Amukamara on his shoulders and dumps the second-year player face-first into a cold tub in the Giants training facility in what was described as a hazing prank.
Apparently, Amukamara went along with the prank, putting up no resistance amid teammates pleas for Prince to stand up for himself.
Amukamara mentioned last season that he went along with the hazing just to make it fun and because it “creates a great locker room atmosphere.” Tell that to your balls-breaking coach, Prince.
But Amukamara is not a rookie anymore and shouldn’t be subject to such hazing. Pierre-Paul, btw, is five inches taller than Prince and weighs 72 pounds more than his teammate.
Except for the distasteful language in the video, it appears to me to be good, clean fun among teammates. But Coughlin won’t see it that way…especially with this footage (and language) all over the internet.
Disciplinary action may be in store for Pierre-Paul and others by Sergeant Coughlin.
