Schiano_2013Count Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano as one who thinks theres some middle ground between harmless rookie initiations and unfair hazing.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Schiano said hes OK with veteran players carrying out rookie initiation rituals, but he insists that rookies be treated with respect.

My thing is you dont cross the line, Schiano said. Thats a man, youre a man; so lets make sure we dont cross the line. I dont get into, dont do this, do this, dont do this. When you start having a thousand different things, you run out of time before you can define all of them. So, I think the Golden Rule is one that you live by. Treat others the way you want to be treated, and I think our guys have been good about that.
