(USA Today) NewsFlash Aaron Hernandez indicted on two counts of murder, which will have to wait until he finishes his first trial for murder. Judge says that if he could manage to walk from the courtroom back to his cell without murdering anybody, that would be swell   (usatoday.com) divider line 215

JerkStore: I'm always curious about the psychology of a guy like this. What's his end-game? He's got more money than he can spend already from football, he's got women, cars, goes to clubs and gets treated like a VIP, whatever he wants. He's respected in his profession, despite that profession being a game. The world is pretty much open to him and if he's smart, he'll never have to do a real day's work in his life. He will live better than 99% of the known universe and all he has to do is not kill people.

So why the stupid gang shiat? What was he getting there that he couldn't get from all the other stuff (aside from the fun of shooting people, I guess). Was he just so pampered because he was an athlete that he never figured he'd get caught? Is reality so distorted that he doesn't even have a concept of murder or consequences? Is his ego really so big and fragile that someone mouthing off at a club is a hunt-and-kill offense? Does he go home afterwards and feel proud of what he's accomplished? How does he define success?

In short, what kind of life are you hoping to lead if you expect your night out on the town to involve killing people?

I know there's no rational explanation for murder, but WTF must be going through this guy's mind? I can't even conceive of a brain so alien that any of this would seem reasonable to someone in his position.


My brother in law is a convicted murderer, ex-gang member. He explained it rather simply: It comes down to 'respect'. Not what you or I would consider respect, but the street respect, that he's 'hard' and 'tough'. That within the realms of the gang lifestyle, he's 'more' gang member than the others, that even with all the talents, money and success, he was still the tough sonuvabiatch that he always was. Certainly, he could have left it behind, but he stayed within the culture of the gang lifestyle. It may be as simple as not wanting to be a sellout in the eyes of his fellow gang members, that the money hadn't changed him, and he could still get the things he wanted out of life through the skills he learned as a gang banger, instead of the skills he learned on the field and in school.

Never mind all the stuff that you mentioned; for some reason, his mind reasoned he had to be seen as a force or power in the element in which he grew up. This goes beyond the normal hangers-on that most football players collect on their ladder to the NFL, but something deeper, that he needs a certain element to believe he has power. That's why he was always involved in gangs, and after a HUGE payday, the world splayed out at his feet like a whore begging for a deep dicking, he kept up the facade that he was from the streets and holds power over those that are still deep in the street/thug life.

In short: He needed someone, somewhere to believe he was a powerful individual, beyond what the money could buy.

vudukungfu: DecemberNitro: /f*ck football and everyone in it

I can get behind that.
It's farking un-American.
It's organized crime.
It's rapey.
It's stupid.
It's meaningless.
People that get excited about it are getting excited about something stupid and meaningless.
People that do that tend to get murderey.

I mean, what is that, like Bronies for football?



If people spent more time thinking of ways to make the government better and more efficient, reading books and learning things, thinking of ways to end pollution and preserving the environment, contemplating how to end war and poverty on the planet for good, and creating and inventing things, rather than watching distracting and pointless games on TV, the planet would probably be a lot better off.

Can't argue with that...

So glad I wasn't home yesterday.  I can only imagine how much derp the Boston stations were pumping out on this one.

Since this is an indictment for a crime committed before the contact extension, doesn't this allow the Pat'ss get his current contract off the current cap. I think the Pat's have around 7.5 mil in dead cap money from that contract this season (this may have been cut in half).

Your rant was amusing up until Fark fantasy football. Fark fantasy football? Oh hell noes. It's one of the few
chances I have to act all uppity about something anymore. (I won all three of my leagues, or haven't you heard?)

keypusher: MugzyBrown: jayphat: Per your list, there are 7 hockey players on that list. There are 34 football players. So really, go there again.

So you're an NHL fan because they're slightly better than NFL players?

That's the logic you're using?

If my team beats your team 34-7, you better not come in here saying we're "slightly better."


30 x 23 = 690
32 x 53 = 1696
690/7 = 99
1696/34 = 50

So taking the total number of players in the league into account it is more accurate to say that football players make that list at twice the rate of hockey players.

/Not that that makes it better, but at least it is a more legitimate comparison

TheOther: rynthetyn: themunsterfullback: Peaceboy: If people didn't like seeing Michael Sam getting kissed on the mouth by his boyfriend when he was drafted, wait'll they see how this guy's cellmate greets him.

Bit better effort then the whole TE/WR thing that got old after the first one was written and some other juvenile ones.  On a more serious related comment, isn't he in isolation because he kept randomly kicking the shiat out of other inmates?

Yep, he's quite the violent one. What other celebrity inmate has landed in isolation because they're a danger to other inmates and not the reverse?

Ctrl-Alt-Del: Acravius: ~ Players/Murderers ratio: NHL 1:362.7 --- NFL: 1:299.3
~ # of M's/Player NHL 0.0028 --- NFL: 0.0033
~ Percentage of player muderers NHL 0.28% --- NFL: 0.33%

1) Nice analysis
2) Holy farking shiat - that's like 4-5 times the rate of murderers in the general population.


Adjusted for age and gender?  What percentage of murders in the United States do you think are committed by men in the age range of NFL players?  80% 90%
