This is why a non-quarterback should never be given too much power.

The New York Giants have been coddling Odell Beckham Jr. by the balls for years now, allowing him to do whatever the f*** he wants on the football field.

You want to create a (selfish, attention-seeking, and unnecessary) pregame circus in the end zone, Odell?

Sure, have fun.

You want to cost the team by committing countless "selfish" penalties (taunting, unnecessary roughness, delay of game, or unsportsmanlike conduct), Odell?

Sure, have fun.

You want to bitch, moan, throw tantrums on the sidelines, tell the media you have no plans of changing for the better, and post high school-level Instagram photos condoning your embarrassing on-field behavior, Odell?

Sure, have fun.

You want, on the week of a playoff game, to get caught hanging out in Miami, partying it up before the biggest game of your professional career, while crumbling like a cookie when it comes to game-time, Odell?

Sure, have fun.

The Giants have let him do whatever he wants and it's finally catching up to them.

Anonymous players are calling out the head coach, two defensive backs have been suspended, and multiple players have let the team for "personal reasons." 

When you set the precedent that Odell can do whatever he wants, clearly treating him in higher regard than any other player, eventually that's going to rub people the wrong way. 

Janoris Jenkins, who just finished serving his team-issued suspension for missing the team's first practice after the bye week, reportedly "lacked remorse" when talking to the media on Thursday about his suspension.

“Aint going to say I got regrets ... ain’t going to say I don’t have regrets," said Jenkins (ESPN's Jordan Raanan).

They created a double standard over a month ago when cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had a sideline blowup that resulted in the team telling him he'd be inactive for the next week's game.

DRC was unhappy about how they had jumped to a conclusion, resulting in him leaving the facility during that next week, and leading to a suspension.

For all the shit Beckham Jr. has started over the course of his Giants career, why hasn't the team done a thing to penalize him? 

It just makes no sense.

Back in July, co-owner John Mara actually said "He (Odell) deserves to be paid. And we're going to pay him."

What negotiator, in any type of negotiation, gives the other party that much leverage? It's embarrassing.

Mara then went on to say that "Lawrence Taylor was that caliber [of star] ... I’ll live with those challenges every day of the week to have a player like him.”

The Giants kiss OBJ's ass like he's a franchise quarterback.

The dude is a wide receiver, and guess what? They sucked on offense last season (less than 20 points per game) even when he was putting up video game numbers.

No wonder the entire roster is revolting against McAdoo and the organization.

Beckham Jr. is clearly being treated better than all of the other players and he doesn't even have the respect to respect the double standard.

It's unbelievable (or, actually, incredibly believable at this point).
