Steve as a whipping boy for the team

I'm looking for an AU. In it, whenever a member of a military team breaks the rules, the team leader takes the punishment for it -- and it's corporal punishment, whipping. It's supposed to be a deterrent to bad behavior -- people won't want to see their team leader get whipped on their behalf. Steve was just transferred to the Avengers as their leader; his previous team used to deliberately get into trouble in order to hurt Steve.

Does anyone know what story I'm talking about?
