Is NFL hazing out of control?

Rookie hazing is a common sight in NFL training camps, generally taking the form of menial tasks and the occasional ridiculous costume. Some players on the Dolphins, however, seem to have taken it a bit further -- guard Richie Incognito has been suspended indefinitely for his role in bullying second-year player Jonathan Martin, including reportedly intimidating Martin, forcing him to pay for expensive trips, and using racially charged language. Actions like that are obviously unacceptable, but what about lesser forms of hazing?
