    Interesting - Coughlin says hell look into cold-tub incident

    We need a break from our problems.

    Coughlin says hell look into cold-tub incident

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-tub-incident/


    The league wont be doing anything about it. But the head coach possibly will.

    Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Sunday that he plans to investigate the videotaped incident that culminated in defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul dumping cornerback Prince Amukamara into a cold tub, followed by Amukamara emerging with a not-so-thrilled look on his face and Pierre-Paul firing off a stream of expletives and epithets.

    Im going to look into it, Im going to talk to the parties involved, Coughlin said Sunday, via Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. As Im understanding it, there were some parts of it that were inappropriate. And in no way, anything that occurs within this family or within our group should be a part of social media. Im going to address that strongly because I spent a little time on that this preseason.

    Coughlin said he wasnt aware of the video until roughly an hour before a Sunday conference call with reporters.

    So, basically, Pierre-Paul and punter Steve Weatherford, who recorded and posted the video on Twitter, will have some explaining to do. (Weatherford still hasnt deleted the tweet.)

    The victim of the prank (or whatever it was) also has addressed the situation, presumably choosing his words carefully because hes under contract for several more years. Yeah, um, well, I mean, I just dont get it. I dont understand the rules, Amukamara told Garafolo. I mean, Im not a rookie anymore, so I dont know why Im getting thrown in the tub. I know its all love.

    If thats love, wed hate to see, you know, hate.

    Apparently, Amukamara has been a regular target for hazing or harassment or whatever the appropriate word is. He said he landed in the cold tub eight times last year, and he had his shirt and tie cut. Garafolo writes that players have been trying to get Amukamara to develop an edge.

    As to the latest incident, Amukamara is confused as to the reason for the dunking. I dont think I did [anything to provoke it], Amukamara said. I dont think I did. Ask them.

    It may still happen, at least for a while. Amukamara said that the veterans have told him that he has three more regular-season games to complete before hes considered one of them.

    Based on how them were acting in that video, Amukamara may decide to pass on the invitation.

    Coughlin has lost all control of that lockerroom.

    It's an absolute circus.

    That team is a circus. The coach has no control of the team.

    If I am Amukamara, there is no way I am letting the punter throw me anywhere. He should have kicked Weatherford's ass on the spot.

    +1. If the Jets did this, Rex should be flogged for allowing it.

    I believe the punter was filming. JPP threw him. But how stupid do you have to be? What if Prince broke his neck?

    Why aren't the Jets doing the same to Hunter?

    He should be dunked in the cold tub every week.

    LOL.

    JPP would be hung if he did this to the Prince in his country.

    What country is that again?

    Any chance they cut JPP for using the N word 10x. I think we should start a fake outrage petition to the NAACP. Get him cut and we sign him.

    Same reaction if it were the Jets? I don't think so




    @AlbertBreer: Wait ... So that Giants video is a big deal because ... Why?
    I always liked Prince. So I find the video disturbing. He is a very humble kid

    Sounds like classic bullying just because he's a prince.....


    He should invite JPP to his country and have his balls cut off.

    I would gut the roster to get him. For him, every player would be expendable.

    But I agree, he would be a Patriot.

    Got to love some of the comments coming out of the Giants locker room, things like "the media is blowing it out of proportion."

    LOL, about damn time the media spent a little time dumping on the darling Giants.
