With the situation between Richie Incognito and Jontathan Martin taking center stage on the NFL landscape, there has been a lot of focus on bullying and hazing. Locker room pranks can be harmless and are everywhere though, and not just for rookies. Dallas Cowboys veteran linebacker Sean Lee might be the victim of an ongoing prank, or some over zealous equipment managers.
It seems that Sean Lee is having his underwear and socks stolen after games.
From Lee’s interview on the Ben & Skin Show on KRLD-FM, via the Dallas Morning News:
On his underwear and socks getting stolen after games:
“I haven’t gotten to the bottom of it yet. I don’t know if it’s a prank or the equipment guys cleaning up. It’s not funny either way. It’s a long ride home. Let’s just say that. After the games, it’s been a 50 percent chance of them taking my socks and underwear, which is a problem.”
On if anybody else has had their underwear or socks stolen:
“I don’t know. I think I’m wearing the spandex under my suit. You know, the spandex underwear, like the Under Armour stuff so I think they think it’s part of the equipment, maybe, and the equipment guys just take it. I don’t know if it’s happening to anybody else, but I need to find a way to get to the bottom of it and make sure I have underwear when I leave the locker room.”
