    Here are a few notes from the recently concluded morning practice session at Gillette Stadium: Most of the starters β€” including quarterback Tom Brady, wide receiver Randy Moss, linebacker Tedy Bruschi and defensive lineman Richard Seymour β€” were not present for the duration of practice. However, a handful of first-teamers on both the offense (including running [...]

    Does this mean Brady probably won’t be at tonight practice as well?

    Thanks, Chris.

    On a slightly different note, what ever happened to the 'rookie haircut' ritual? I always got a kick out of the different haircuts and Mankins' "haircut" in particular made me laugh. The slip 'n slide routine doesn't seem nearly as humiliating.

    I would say the opposite. They are saving his arm for tonight.

    I know they still do some of that -- witness Maroney's shaved eyebrows as a rookie. But I know that some folks weren't happy with that part of the rookie hazing process. (Teams around the league started cracking down on public hazing rituals a few years ago, and that may have come under that umbrella.) However, I know the rookies are forced to participate in skits during camp, most of which are aimed at Belichick.

    Thanks again, Chris! I had forgotten about the eyebrow-shaved Maroney... priceless.

    After a quick search, the only photo I could find was Clint Oldenburg (who I think is with the Jets) and Oscar Lua (currently a free agent?). Anyway, interesting insight on the hazings. I guess the professionals have to set the right tone and example, even if it seems pretty innocent, IMO.

    Oh, man. I forgot how bad Oldenburg's haircut was. Anyway, I'll ask around about some other rookie stuff--or if they have anything planned for the rookies--later this week.
