Maybe it's just me but the NFL is supposed to be ona higher, more professional level. All rookies are expectected to come in, join a team, and contribute immediately..... Therefore hazing becomes a rather juvenile, counter productive way of exerting dominance on one's peers. I do not agree or consent to hazing or mistreatment of teammates on any NFL club. I wish my Panthers were more mature than this. I can almost accept the tradition of carrying veteran pads but getting tied to goal posts is archaic and in some cases criminal acts of grown men with juvenile minds. It's an embarrassing and discraseful tradition of professional players who have yet to mature and treet peers as respected members of a a team.
