08:27 AM ET 02.16 | Don Shula --- who will join Tony Dungy, Dan Marino, Jason Taylor and Curtis Martin on a Dolphins committee that will formulate a locker-room code of conduct --- says Dolphins veterans should no longer be permitted to make rookies pay for a $30,000 dinner at Prime 112, as they did with defensive rookies last season. "That's ridiculous," Shula said. "It's not right. Why should they have to do that? Our rookie hazing was just playful stuff, but I don't remember any incident that was uncomfortable or out of line. This is carrying it too far. Everybody has to get back to common sense and don't do anything that causes any longterm harm or ill feelings."

Really ? You need a committee to tell the clowns to knock it off ?

When presented with a $30k bill, rookies should just tell them to F-Off!

Yea, he seems to be going for the "senior diplomat" look there. He got the dip part right.

That should be the rule everywhere, in all walks of life. I'm looking at you, politicians.
