An idiot. In the Navy's Chief's mess there is a saying that whatever happens in the mess, stays in the mess. You never, ever bring out locker room secrets (no matter what they are) out to the media or any social networking website. We grilled Tiki Barber for doing similar things a few years back as in bringing locker room secrets out to the forefront. He does not get a pass in my eyes for this. The "send" or "post" button are deadly weapons because you can't take it back. He had to know that this stuff would get blown up, especially when there's hazing involved. In my eyes, he broke the code and should get dealt with accordingly. Agree or disagree with me, I really don't give a ****.

Fortunately, nobody got hurt and the video didn't divulge anything you wouldn't expect to go on at training camp.

Hopefully, everybody learned a lesson and now has a proper perspective (i.e., the coach's) on these types of activities.

I call this learning a lesson the easy way. Learning a lesson the hard way is never good.

Now this is where if have a problem too . I personally don't have any beef against hazing rituals, they are practically part of the game but the thing that gets to me and doesn't go well with with me is putting this vid over the internet. That is very wrong doing in so many levels and of course somebody or someone has to take actions over this incident. That been said IMO the best way is to deal with it as fast as you can and go forward and not make a soap opera out of this episode.

That is what I was thinking after this became such a controversial topic. I think he's a really funny dude, and I have actually had the opportunity to meet him at my local bar that he frequents because he lives around the corner (that guy can drink !). He just had a moment of weakness in that he could not resist the temptation to upload the video.

Honestly, I would go as far to say that if we had Dodge and not Weatherford we would not have won the SB / even made the playoffs.

Now before everyone goes crazy mis-interpreting that, I'm not saying that Weatherford got us to the SB, I'm just saying that when we couldn't afford to have him screw up, he never did. Dodge on the other hand, just could not perform consistently under pressure.

Not debatable at all. Dodge may have a stronger leg, but as we saw with Feagles, distance is not nearly as important as direction. Dodge was pitiful in 2010. To the point that you had to worry about him simply catching the snap. I won't even talk about the punt directly to DJax, because mistakes do happen, but the whole season was a disaster.

Punter should be a position that you just don't have to worry about. That's what we had last year and that's what we had with Feagles. 2010 was scary.

nhpgiantsfan

You can't say that. If he kicks the ball out of bounds, anything could've happened. It was a tie game.

He was also a rookie, and not given a second year as the starter. the preseason competition was very close but he showed major improvements. He was run out of town after his rookie year....

That's the main thing. Coughlin has been on a football field almost as long as I've been live, I doubt he has any problem with some hazing. Bringing it out to the media needlessly I'm guessing is what really annoyed Top Cat, and is what he talked to the boy about. I imagine he told them enough of the social media stuff, it's football season and he doesn't want to deal with such stupid questions from the media.

And he did look really good in the competition against Weatherford.

Obviously his teammates don't think Weatherford is some outsider who drinks Gatorade while they get their body beat up. If they did then he wouldn't have even been there to film it.

My only issue with Weatherford posting the video online was that it lacked context. Because of this, it made the viewer ask questions. Is Prince soft? Is JPP a bully? Do Prince's teammates not like him? etc. If there was context, then we would have instantly realized it was about including Prince in the team rather than excluding him.

I have no problem with the video. In fact, I love stuff like this. We fans don't get to see behind the scenes interactions very often and Weatherford was just trying to share that with us. It's unfortunate that because some sanctimonious fans blew it out of proportion, we won't be getting anything like this from Steve again.

Those of you yelling that he "broke the locker room code" or those of you who complain when any player talks to the media worry too much about how other people perceive this team (and how it reflects on you). Instead just realize that this is a GREAT franchise and a great time to be a Giants fan. Go Big Blue.

Its because he was the scapegoat of the season. No one remember that we gave up a huge lead to the eagles in the last five minutes of the game.... they remeber that kick.
I really do not get why he isn't brought in for competition in preseason. We used to do that with Tynes!

Truth is its hard to say...Dodge was neck and neck with Weatherford all preseason. We all knew Weatherford was gonna get the nod. But Dodge didnt choke under all the pressure he was under either.

Fact is...EVERYBODY was just waiting for Dodge to muff a punt...and he never did. Say what you want...but he fought like a man and has no reason to hang his head down.

I was actually very impressed of how he performed with everyone hating on him and waiting for him to fail. He has nothing to be ashamed about

You can't compare rookie punters to other drafter position players. Kickers and punters frequently change teams. When a team can upgrade at one of the spots, they usually do.

all those coffin-corner kicks versus kicking directly to Desean Jackson...

Dodge was a major weak point all year and was at the center of the game that torpedoed the 2010 season. IMO he shouldn't have been tossed to the wolves and we should have picked up a veteran to guide him for a few years. I guess this is a spot where Reese is to blame, for not getting us a seasoned vet when Feagles hung it up.

This is made worse by the fact that we were coming off of (IMO h-o-f'er) Feagles so we weren't used to having a strength become a glaring weakness.

The only thing that upsets me about Dodge was that we tried to go with him in 2010 and then bailed on him after all the hard times had already been endured. Don't get me wrong, I really love Weatherford but I wouldn't mind seeing Dodge get picked up and get a 2nd chance somewhere.

I said similar things many times during this debate last summer.......everyone thinks Feagles just popped into the NFL and experienced punter.....Dodge was a rookie and he was prone to rookie mistakes...it does not mean he didn't have talent...it just means he needed a place to learn and develop his talent.......problem with this board is everyone thinks that 1st year players are supposed to walk in and play like 10 year vets

Having said that, what he did was beyond stupid.............right up there with Favre sending txt pictures of his tool to a Jets cheerleader

Pretty much my sentiments.
I have no ill feelings for Dodge, he seems like a great kid and I have no doubt that he could improve greatly if he is given a second chance. He followed up a top 3 all time punter and was under tremendous pressure to perform. Unfortunately as a Giants fan, I'm glad we don't have him anymore and I am completely and fully happy Weatherford is our guy for what looks to be many years to come.

I don't think he's gonna get a second shot. That's one of those positions that only has one slot, and he would really have to impress somebody to fill it. Hope he does though.

Anyone know if he was even invited to work out for anybody this year?

i agree I don't know what he was thinking they should throw him into the tub of ice what an idiot This is exactly the kind of goofy stuff that all teams engage in at every level of sports. It is mostly a bonding experience borne out of competitveness and prankster nature of many athletes. It mostly brings teams together and occasionally get out of hand where someone is injured. This one didn't get out of hand but it got out of the locker where some were able to mis-characterize it.

This is a total non-story except that Weatherford (who I love) should have kept that in the family. The hub bub that has ensued is evidence enough that he did wrong to put that video out there.

Let;s move on.

I'm going to guess TC made that abundantly clear to Steve

Maybe his punishment is to give training on the misuse of social networking to the rest of the team. He owned up to it and obviously learned his lesson by now. It does upset me when I am hearing negative press about our giants on sports radio in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We even stole thunder from the angels and dodgers these last couple of days.

An idiot. In the Navy's Chief's mess there is a saying that whatever happens in the mess, stays in the mess. You never, ever bring out locker room secrets (no matter what they are) out to the media or any social networking website. We grilled Tiki Barber for doing similar things a few years back as in bringing locker room secrets out to the forefront. He does not get a pass in my eyes for this. The "send" or "post" button are deadly weapons because you can't take it back. He had to know that this stuff would get blown up, especially when there's hazing involved. In my eyes, he broke the code and should get dealt with accordingly. Agree or disagree with me, I really don't give a ****.

I think the craze over Weatherfords tweet is just ****ing stupid....if the media didn't make a story out of this everyone on this message board would be laughing it up and think it was just a jolly prank! Pathetic, lifeless activists have a problem with this ****! I don't care either way about what happened and think this thread sucks.

Listen, I like Weatherford and am very glad they chose him over Dodge. But he is the reason for all this. Why is everyone pointing the finger at the media. Why is everyone surprised by the coverage. It's 2012, athletes can't fart without it being covered somewhere. Weatherford used poor judgement and I hope he really got his balls busted. He should have known better. He is the goat here. That being said, it's over now and I hope he has learned his lesson and has just as good a season as last year.

Let's go Giants. September 5th can't come quick enough.

Notice the last 6 words on my post, buddy. Anyways, I do agree that the media is making something out of nothing. If it never gets put out there, they have nothing to talk about. That's where the problem lies. We should not know anything about what goes on in that locker room.

He hasn't tweeted anything since the apology. I wonder if he's grounded from twitter ;)

It's time to let this go all around. I think it's a good thing that Coughlin isn't going to allow dunks into the cold tub anymore. Keep pranks to the non-harmful varity only. Give Weatherford a break. He didn't think it through before he posted. Probably just trying to one up the one Webster posted of Randle.

He feels bad. It's time to move on.

Twitter is one of the worst things to happen to pro athletes since steroids. Players who are smart (i.e. Eli Manning) stay off twitter. Twitter is great for the reporters and such, but bad for players.

Nothing else need be said. Big help in winning games last year, won't be any different this year.

Twitter is one of the worst things to happen to the world. People who are smart (i.e. anyone with a brain) stay off twitter. Twitter is great for the bored housewifes and such, but bad for rest of us.

Fixed it for you...........

LMAO. I was thinking the same think. But in all seriousness. I agree. He should've keep the issue internally. No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes, and to call someone an idiot because of a mistake is uncalled for. At some point in our lives, we have made the same mistake whether you would like to admit it or not.
