It came up most recently in a letter written to protest our disendorsement of a woman running for re-election to the Pennsylvania legislature who claimed that the editorial reeked with "the stench of the country club locker room. " Last week while doing scholarly research on popular music I encountered a comment from a black feminist saying that the rap music of 2 Live Crew and others was, essentially, "a locker room with a beat. " Indeed, women have been making sexist slurs for years to the effect that men, when in the relative privacy of their locker rooms, join together in making lewd, lascivious and demeaning comments about women.

In the reorganized layout of the Eagles locker room at the NovaCare Complex, the offensive linemen are clustered in a back corner of the room like bears in a cave, just the way they want it. For three years under Chip Kelly, the locker assignments were random, with a linebacker here, a running back there, a punter here, and even a quarterback dropped among the brutes like a pearl in a field of rocks. It was interesting in a new-age kind of way, but Kelly's revolution has expired, and Doug Pederson is more of a business-as-usual guy, from the standard fundamentals of the game right down to the positional groupings in the locker room.

The allegations were horrific: Two football players at an academically elite high school held down a smaller freshman teammate trying to escape a hazing ritual, while a third used a broom handle to penetrate the younger boy's rectum. The three Conestoga High School students were charged with assault, unlawful restraint, and other counts - but not hazing. The lack of a hazing charge was the result of a "glaring omission" in state law, said Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - After it was over, everybody wanted to know what it said about this Eagles team. That's how it goes in these parts. Every final score has to be a referendum of some sort. Chip Kelly said it best the last time the Eagles won a game. You don't know what one week's result says about your team until the next week. When the Eagles beat the Cowboys a month ago, it looked like a turning point. One week later, it looked like it was not. Same goes for Thanksgiving Day: a third straight loss, a second straight game allowing 40-plus points, a team that looked like one of those fried turkey accidents you always read about.

Brian Ludwig's 15-year-old son was buttoning his pants after gym class in the Roxborough High School locker room Monday morning when they grabbed him. "They picked him up, ripped off his pants, ripped off his underwear. The more he fought, the worse it got," Ludwig said. The three attackers - all juniors - dragged the freshman around the floor of the locker room and snapped pictures of him on a cell phone, Ludwig said. School District officials said they are investigating the incident.

One month has passed since the Eagles drafted Carson Wentz, and the honeymoon period for the No. 2 overall draft pick remains in effect. Wentz started his third week of organized team activities Tuesday. He continues as the third-string quarterback, and he's enjoyed the discussions about football, schemes, and "life" in a quarterbacks room that includes starter Sam Bradford and second-stringer Chase Daniel. Wentz said he has felt welcomed in the locker room, and that is different from what he heard often happens when a player enters the NFL. "So far, it's been great," Wentz said.

The football players at Conestoga High School had a nickname for the rituals they performed each week, according to prosecutors. No-Gay Thursday.

Three seniors, including a team captain, grabbed a freshman they didn't like, who was trying to leave the locker room during a hazing ritual.
