" Garrett, who is entering his first full season as a head coach, has made it clear to his team that initiation rites that demean rookies aren't allowed." Honestly, this is something I'm really excited about. I don't think hazing is a good way to build unity or camaraderie at all. Jack Del Rio made the same decision this offseason. The article doesn't state it, but I think it's worth noting that Bill Walsh, Coach K, Bill Belichick, and Nick Saban all have/had the same policy.
