Trouble in New York!?!?

From what I have ben reading it seems that Coughlin(SP) my loose the respect of the players before the second game of the season. I guess that he has ben fining playerS for, get this, SHOWING UP EARLY, BUT NOT EARLY ENOUGH, to team meetings.

I personly like the way that Coughlin(SP) is trying to build team chemistry on the Giants. With good rewards such as a $1,000.00 fine for M. Strahan because he arrived at 8:23 for an 8:25 meeting.

If he keeps up this attitude this season, I see the players esp. the vets on this team, quiting on him faster than the did on Fassel.

As long as they're in the meeting by start time and attentive so what? You set a time for people to be there for a reason. Random fines only build team comradarie while they figure out how to lynch the coach.

Don't make the players GUESS what will get them in trouble. Were they there by said time? They did what you asked. I'm all for discipline, but this is over the top.

That's like telling a child to eat their Spinach and they get desert. Once the Spinich is gone you say well, I would have given you desert had you eaten the Spinach before we made that deal, but since you made the deal you have to eat more Spinach.

Strahan fined for not being early enough?

I love this gem, "Meetings start five minutes early."

Between the grievances over practice and voluntary workouts, the Giants look to be in big t-rouble

ok then why not just set the time to be at say 8:25 for an 8:30 meeting, then there would be no confussion as to when the meeting started and when it really started.

Not to stick up for TC, 'cause I agree with Daseal - if you say you must be there when the meeting starts and it starts at 8:25, don't fine me when I show up at 8:24.

BUT What TC appears to be saying is "the meeting STARTS at 8:25, be there 5 mins early so we can start AT 8:25 and not have to wait for you to find your seat, get settled, say your howdy's, etc."

IF that's what TC meant, however, then he damn well shoulda said that.

That's frickin ANAL, I'm surprised his players still have ANY respect for him.

The irony of the whole thing is that he is losing the "control" that he covets so much. I heard that the players association is going to nail him to the wall after this and the over the top offseason workouts.

Well we were going to give you the money but you posted this message 2 minutes too early so we're going to have to fine you $60 dollars (per moderator).

anybody else watch the deion interview on PTI and them talking about this with deion saying that coughlin took up half an hour of a meeting just to go over the fineable offenses including the uniforms and not being allowed to speak to the opposing players. I seriously think coughlins lost his mind doing this to grown men who've been doing this job for several years and he somehow thinks that treating them like children with the iq's of rocks is going to garner respect from the players. doesn't make too much sense to me but its not too bad if its causing chaos and discord in NY.
