Glad to see the fearless sports editor of the Boston Globe is back in full Patriots finger-wagging mode.
Looks like Patriots are doing their hazing of rookies today. Doesn’t help HS coaches keep this stuff in check. How aboutnot doing it?
Right, because making rookies go down a slip-n-slide – in full public view of media and coaches – is the same as the sexual assaults and beatings that have been uncovered among high schools.
If anything, the Patriots as showing how to initiate rookies in a fun, non-harmful manner. I might think the whole thing is silly, but it’s not harming anyone.
I just hope Sullivan also comes out and takes a stand when the Red Sox make their rookies wear dresses on the final road trip of the season. If anything, that’s more humiliating than going down a slip-n-slide.
