Hazing is illegal. Period. The students know this and so do the coaches. You haze, you get suspended. I'm an employee and the attitude of entitlement that the athletes have is nauseating. I don't feel sorry for any of them.

X2 if they were native Minnesotans they would know this.

I was on the ski team, We went for a run at night.
(in the winter) and we had to run bear foot on the way back.

We all lived and now we have a story to tell about running bear foot in the winter for our sport.
I remember all of us trying to stand or get our feet on this baseboard heater when we got back.

Then there are the hazing is illegal bunch, it maybe "illegal" to force them but it was all voluntary.
Don't mess with our traditions.
A lot of traditions are stupid but they build character.

Why don't these little babies stick up for themselves and refuse to do it. I was apart of Varsity Sports and we did this stuff, all in fun. Welcome to the team, join the ranks and if you want to be apart of us, you've gotta prove your allegiance, and gain our trust.

I agree with you partially... I think the hazed kids need to stand up for themselves and take some responsibility here. If someone is asking you to do something dangerous, then say no. How many times has your mom said to you "if so-and-so told you to jump off a bridge would you do it?" But really, some pretty awful things can come out of peer pressure, it's best for the older, more mature students not to force these kind of situations in the first place.

I remember getting hazed in Boy Scouts - they dumped me on the multi-spigot drinking fountain and soaked me (it was a hot day in summer). At first I was really mad & fighting them, but one of the senior scouts set me straight - "Come on, we're just having fun. Let it go!" So I relaxed, they got their jollies, it wasn't so bad - and it cooled me off.

As long as people don't get hurt or mentally tortured, hazing is just one of those things kids do. Let it go.
