That JPP guy is a trouble maker. We should help the Giants out by offering to trade Ron Brace for him:
Random thought from a pure speculation standpoint: The Giants have had a run of injuries along the defensive line and I had the thought that perhaps they might be a trade partner for the Patriots if they were seeking help. Maybe Tom Coughlin dipping into his old BC background and seeing if a change of scenery might bring out the best in Ron Brace? At times in training camp, Brace has looked very good, but there simply might not be room for him on the Patriots' roster.

The victim of the prank (or whatever it was) also has addressed the situation, presumably choosing his words carefully because he’s under contract for several more years. “Yeah, um, well, I mean, I just don’t get it. I don’t understand the rules,” Amukamara told Garafolo. “I mean, I’m not a rookie anymore, so I don’t know why I’m getting thrown in the tub. I know it’s all love.”
If that’s love, we’d 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 don’t think I did [anything to provoke it],” Amukamara said. “I don’t think I did. Ask them.”

There are a lot of conflicting opinions here, at least for me. I get rookie hazing...it makes sense to try and deflate a new guy's head a bit. But JPP repeatedly doing that to someone (not even a rookie anymore) who he is bigger/stronger than is bullying, pure and simple. I don't care if "trying to toughen him up" is the 'reason' for doing this, it's just plain *****ty. If Prince snaps and goes Beecher (Oz reference for those that haven't seen it) on JPP one day I will applaud him.
People these days are too quick to just post something somewhere on the internet with out thinking of the consequences. What did the punter gain from posting this? To humiliate Prince more? I got news for you, punter guy...the Giants opposing QB's are licking their chops now seeing how Prince got punked out like that and did nothing about it. It's a shame Brady hadn't heard about this before the Super Bowl, whoever Prince was covering would have broken SB records.
Goodell just letting this go is complete crap. He suspended Saints players for doing less to opponents and with less evidence, yet he calls this a "club matter". I'm not saying Goodell favors the Giants, it's just that his suspension/fine process is MADDENING. Everything seems like decisions he makes based on how his day is going so far. "My bagel was stale...fine the Patriots! Man, that was a good slice of pizza I had for lunch...Braylon Edwards DUI is no big deal." I can't freakin figure this guy out.
