Having seen the video of JPP dumping Prince Amukamara in the tub, here's a few thoughts that come to mind:
- Foremost, I'm amused by the media mantra of the classy Giants and the trashy Jets. It's not only ridiculous and facile, but it becomes accepted "fact" among all of the talking heads and most of the fan base. It seems that any objective view of both teams would reveal that they each have their loudmouths, intellectuals, trashy, and classy. Antrelle Rolle, Ahmad Bradshaw, the now departed Brandon Jacobs, Osi, David Diehl - this is quite a collection of malcontents, big mouths, and law breakers. Probably no more so or less so than other NFL teams, but they certainly contradict the image of the classy Giants.
Then factor in that the franchise's all time best player is a serial law breaker, with statutory rape on his docket. Yet the perception of the Giants as Boy Scouts and the Jets as bungling miscreants is continually peddled to the point where even Jet fans (and I'm not one) accept it.
- The "prank" itself reflects pretty badly on JPP, especially the aftermath where he drops the "N" word a few times and other choice words.

The good news here is none of them smacked there mother around.

anyways, I myself never thought of the GMen as being classy. Its former owners and current QB/HC to me are however. Its current co owner (Steve) is a clown in my books but thats a subject for another day.

I will say this however, these things happened last year, yet it wasnt in any ones back pages.

If I had to guess, these things go on in EVERY locker room. With the exception of those being kept low key. Had the video never leaked (by a teammate no less), than this is never brought up.

With that said, I wouldnt allow any type of roughhousing or hazing in my locker room. At least not to this extent. When I saw that video, I was disgusted. I love a joke just like the next guy but this pissed me off to no ends. I wont go into detail on the thoughts that popped into my head.

And in case any ones wondering, JPP is about as immature and naive as it gets for a human being. I chalk that up to being...well....immature. Oh and to put it mildly, he also lacks any notion of intelligence. I find it hard to believe that if I sat down with him and we had a conversation, that he would be able to keep up.

He is a NY Giants and a Beast so for now, I'll chalk this up to a stupid prank and hope hes learned not to do it again. An inch the wrong way and you have your starting CB seriously hurt. Talk about stupid.

Oh and his teammates who instigated the entire thing do not get passes here. They should know better but (I guess) its hard not to get someone as easy to manipulate (as JPP is) to not do your dirty work. :? Thats like offering me free tickets to a mets...actually Giants game. No way am I going to deny that.

I think it is a bit more of the reflection of their two coaches.
