The NFL makes it seem really hard for a body to avoid being involved in murder.  I had no idea that I've been living a charmed life to have never been implicated in gunning someone down.

Who cares about their personal life or what direction their moral compass points as long as they help bring their home teams to victory? All we have to do is pay the price of a bunch of criminals who beat their wives or girlfriends, get involved in hard drug use, get involved in doping rings and gun a few people down and show our children that they can be as morally bankrupt as they want to as long as they play well on the field -- and we get our favorites teams to win.

Of course we just have to crucify and public shame the players who aren't that good on the field to send a 'message' that that sort of behavior isn't desired in the NFL or any professional sports league. With a wink and a grin of course.

Stevan Ridley is high fiving everyone he can. Gronk is hurt, Welker is gone, Hernandez is questionable, Amendola is probably going to get hurt and Brady is going to need someone to count on.

no, the proper joke would be:


Aaron Hernandez, TE (Questionable, Handcuffs*)

He's been released by the Pats.

Pat's don't fark around.

How is the money going to work out is the main question now.  If he gets convicted of just obstruction, then probably no go on recouping all of it.  If it's murder, then I don't see it as being a problem reclaiming it.

See, I'd have gone with something totally horrible..."New England tight end *listens to screams from shower* former tight end now being converted to wide receiver in Sing-Sing"
 
2013-06-26 11:12:39 AM
So if he gets off with a fine and slap on the wrist some other team gets themselves a damn good TE for practically squat

If its not a guaranteed contract the pats don't have to pay him another nickel is my understanding. The signing bonus they paid him last year is gone though, unless there's a "murder clawback clause" or something.

So you're saying ditch him from my keeper league, then.

I bet after the first story came out about Hernandez being investigated involving a murder, that mentally Belichick had already released Hernandez.
 
2013-06-26 11:42:42 AM
So we haven't heard the charge yet? Must be bad for them to keep it quiet to this point, if it was simple obstruction we'd probably know.

And they probably wouldn't have dragged him out of his house in cuffs. Looking like murder charge to me.

Belichick was okay with the murder, it was the destruction of video cameras that horrified him.

Take the murder away and Hernandez still gets a long vacation.  Kraft and Belichick had to have been watching closely and there had to have been some knowledge of unreported prior incidents.  I'm also assuming as soon as we heard the words "illegal gun" a phone rang with Goodell on the other end.  Lastly, I'm curious how much information they have from State Police investigation that the public doesn't.

Jane said many families live on the street, and children in the neighborhood have reacted to the unexpected intrusion into their daily lives by selling lemonade and baked goods to reporters, who would, in turn, let the kids play around with their equipment.

Interesting.

There's still a salary cap hit, which I heard last week will be $7.5 million because of the release.

Quite. It almost kinda humanizes these vulturous reporters.

/and really, I'm more okay with them camping out to get info about an actual murder investigation than, say, the Kim-Kanye baby or similar trash
 
2013-06-26 12:31:31 PM
And now Hernandez will likely be in some trouble with the NFL as well, but if only he'd gone to Goodell right when this all started, ol' Roger probably would have just destroyed the evidence for him!
 
2013-06-26 12:32:10 PM
Keep in mind, they released him. You can't go after the money you paid someone after you release them. He'd have to still be on their roster to have them try and go after already paid money.

They knew going in that once he hit the parking lot, that money was gone. They let him go anyhow.

Keep in mind also, technically he's a waiver claim now. Any team can claim him and his contract in reverse order from last years finish like any other player.

However, with Goodell prepping his ban hammer, I doubt that he'd see the field this year regardless.

Contracts can have a good behavior clause that vacates any guaranteed money. No clue if the new CBA allows contracts that include penalties for this kind of thing. But the idea that releasing him negates contract claims that are specifically written for this kind of situation is silly.

Yes he's technically a waiver wire guy, but the zip-ties on his wrists and ankles will make training camp difficult.

And regardless of any bonus-clawback agreement, that signing bonus is still accelerated to this year. Basically the pats are out a guy AND a good chunk of the cap.

Ha! Weird though right? Was he sitting in his house with his arms inside his shirt already? Does he have "I'm innocent" tattooed on his arms or something?

Not sure why they did that.
 
2013-06-26 03:45:06 PM
No, if you watch the video, he was shirtless when he opened the door.

They cuffed him, and slid the shirt on after. Makes no sense.

It's not uncommon for the cops to let someone make themselves slightly decent after arrest. They're just not gonna take off the cuffs.

The problem being that the kids actually came up with more compelling and impactful stories than the "reporters" did.

From wikipedia "Height 6 ft 1 in Weight 245lb"

That's probably why.

No, he was shirtless when he was cuffed, then requested a shirt before he was sent to jail, which would have sucked to sit in the holding cell shirtless for the next several days. Cuffs don't come off until your in the cell, though.

I like how they found a matching pair of bullet-headed cops about his size to bracket him for the cameras. Each one could destroy a whole dozen crullers by himself.
 
2013-06-27 09:22:23 AM
Why'd they have to release him? If massacre threads have taught me anything these last six months, it's that there's nothing more Patriotic than gun crime.
