texdent: What's if he's acting all shady and whatnot because he's covering for someone?


He would do the same time for the murder as the guy who pulled the trigger

Another player in the NFL arrested on felony charges. Must be a day that ends in y.

But who cares about how morally bankrupt the players are as long as the home team delivers victory, right? Who cares about how many of them get arrested for violent crimes as long as they shine on the field? By buying tickets to this crap, or buying merchandise to this crap, we send a message to the NFL that hiring criminals to play on their teams is inherently a good thing -- and in the end doesn't matter.

But then our kids grow up wanting to be like the players and want to be a pro football player too, and since they think if you're a violent person who gets into fights, then don't worry... the NFL will set you up with a very sweet contract guaranteeing you a fortune. And all you have to do in return is make a few public apologies and/or find Christ on public television and you'll be forgiven... as long as your player statistics are golden. If your stats aren't golden, then gtfo you worthless criminal.

But as log as everyone's favorite teams win, who cares about rewarding criminal behavior? We sure stuck it to the other guys!

I really like football and live in what I'm told is New England. Not flash worthy.
 
2013-06-26 10:09:42 AM  
Not news.

Can we take the "News" and "News Flash" tags away from the sportsdinks?

What percentage of NFL players do you think are convicted felons? And what percentage of non-NFL players?
 
2013-06-26 10:21:03 AM  

you are a puppet: Didn't they have Kellen Winslow for a couple weeks last season? Maybe they could bring him back, turns out his decision making isn't as bad as previously thought.


He signed with the Jets last week.

Even without arms he is probably a better receiver than Tebow.
 
2013-06-26 10:22:03 AM  

WTF Indeed: How does Tebow effect Aaron Hernandez's arrest?


He prayed for a starting spot....

/God works in mysterious ways...

Oh nice, so they did bring in a replacement for Tebow.

Wait, the pats released aaron hdz? Im guessing a murder charge
 
2013-06-26 10:24:41 AM  
I hate it when sports page stories end up on the main page. Too many losers on the main page who don't know who the player is and want to let everyone know that they don't know who the player is but need to let everyone know that because these guys are rich and famous that is what is wrong with the country.
 
2013-06-26 10:24:48 AM  
And now he's been officially cut by the Patriots.
 
2013-06-26 10:25:09 AM  
ESPN just announced that the Pats have released Hernandez.

Maybe Tebow will be playing tight end after all.
 
2013-06-26 10:25:43 AM  
Tebow moves up to #2 on the tight end depth chart!
 
2013-06-26 10:26:30 AM  
Im sensing the cops told the pats what he was gonna be charged with before making it public.

Probably a better passer, too.

Because this is obviously more important than the use of the constitution as toilet paper, women's rights, racist voting laws in the south, global climate change, droughts, fires, floods, and plagues of locusts (spring breakers) invading towns.


Some people have the brain capacity to follow and discuss a variety of different stories covering a variety of different topics.  I guess some people don't.

Yeah, but that goes without saying.

Take this for what it's worth coming from some guy on the internet. I heard from a good source that they cut off the guys private parts prior to killing him. Damn

highvaluetarget: And now he's been officially cut by the Patriots.


That is the most Belichick move of all time. "Oh, he's been arrested? Cut him, we've got to find a different cog now."
 
2013-06-26 10:30:37 AM  
But the question remains whether they have to take a huge salary cap hit for cutting him so early in his new contract. And whether how much guaranteed money they still have to pay him
 
2013-06-26 10:31:05 AM  
Was going to say that he's been released by the Pats, but that's already been covered. So here's the pic that TMZ put up to go along with that

i'm guessing the morality clause takes care of that

I assume it will work just like Micheal Vick, salary off the books, any guarantee money they can get back goes back to the cap.

I have not been following this closely since I was on vacation last week, but did they get the murderer? If not, I still speculate Mr. Hernandez might have murdered him. Regardless, he is pretty FARKed now.
 
2013-06-26 10:35:46 AM  

ltdanman44: NightOwl2255: He may not be guilty of any crime, but he's damn sure acting guilt as fark.

destroying your own security system and smashing your own smartphone?  how is that acting guilty?


he be trolling.

If he's not the murderer, he knows who is.

Judging by the cell phone, security system, and cleaning crew...Hernandez is covering up for himself or someone else. That's a legal no-no.
 
2013-06-26 10:37:01 AM  
Since he's been released does he get to keep the $40 million? Not that it will do him much good in jail.

[i48.photobucket.com image 258x250]

You just can't teach that.

That's sad, but what's worse is that it was a bad throw by (assumedly) Buttfumble and an equally bad route by Tebow.  Plus he was covered.


a ball so horribly thrown it hit him in the helmet.
 
2013-06-26 10:38:47 AM  
C'mon people, he's Hispanic. You KNEW they were going to find a way to pin this on him eventually.

'MURICA. yeah.

Makes it worth listening to the arraignment today.  Hopefully they don't clear the court.

Walker: Since he's been released does he get to keep the $40 million? Not that it will do him much good in jail.


Unless they can prove that he knowingly signed the contract in bad faith, they may have difficulty recovering the money. If he had committed the crime before signing, they could get the money back pretty easily (ie: the Vick case). This will be much tougher to sell to a judge. However, they will certainly try.

Thanks for taking the time to post in a sports thread about how no one should be posting in sports threads.
But why aren't you out protesting somewhere?

Yep, you don't cover up any major crimes like this.
 
2013-06-26 10:40:46 AM  

Lost Thought 00: How many other members of the Patriots, and the NFL, are active gang members actively murdering their rivals? Me thinks Hernandez wasn't a lone wolf


Let's just come right out and say it. This man has the obvious telltale marks of a life in gang activity, and poses a threat to anybody who crosses him.

Walker: Since he's been released does he get to keep the $40 million? Not that it will do him much good in jail.


He's already been paid 9.25m or something like that. He is guaranteed something like 2.5m over the next two years and, amazingly, his contract doesn't have a "failure to perform" clause which would cover the Patriots if he was, say, in jail and unable to make a road game (or a home game).

Walker: Since he's been released does he get to keep the $40 million? Not that it will do him much good in jail.


Only $16M was guaranteed, but his $12.5M signing bonus is a rather large cap hit here.

It's supposed to be low and away (lower and further to the left), in a place where the defender can't get at it..  It's definitely a bad throw, in pick 6 territory.  Maybe we're a little spoiled by Brady up here.
 
2013-06-26 10:47:04 AM  
Jake Ballard signing is all that more important now.

This guy was covered, overthrown, didn't flinch, and still made the pivotal play in a Super Bowl...plus it was the last catch he made in his career.

[brentwhite.files.wordpress.com image 850x616]


You're just being mean, and failed to mention the 2 things that would have left me in tears:  The holding that started at the snap and led up to the throw (and that no NFL ref in his right mind would have called at that point in a SB), and the fact that Asante Samuel was supposed to be covering him man-to-man and had just let him go 20 yards prior (after Samuel gave up an earlier goal-line touchdown and also dropped the game clinching interception.)
