Posted this bit in this morning's entry but it was pretty funny and I figured I'd share it here:

– ProFootballTalk.com had an article looking at the practice of veterans sticking rookies with the bill during team dinners and had a humorous story that involved a former Patriot. Former New England running back Fred Taylor said that during one such outing, Taylor said he watched Tom Brady pull off a pretty expensive prank. “Tom [Brady] would come in there and buy a three, four, five thousand dollar bottle of wine, take one sip, say goodnight,” said Taylor. Taylor went on to say that he witnessed that happening more than once, which helped rack up a bill that ended up being in the tens of thousands of dollars that the rookies then had to pay for.

Not cool with hazing in general, but especially not a fan of "expensive" pranks on people that make way less than you and who likely wont have a second contract.
I agree. I thought it was sort of funny initially with the guy’s making millions. Then I read about a few where that wasn’t the case and realized those weren’t funny at all and it’s obviously a ridiculous waste of money, especially for guys who are just learning how to deal with it.

I'm all for the funny rookie hair cuts and them carrying pads/helmets, but that is about it.
