I had no idea Matt Patricia's side hustle was a security company.

Not for nothing, but it seems this happens every year somewhere. Wonder if they're ever going to start hiring security details for players' homes during the game.

They took all the Tide Pods he was saving to eat during this weekend's "Nature Cat" marathon.

Gronk just pwned in game of life
 
2018-02-06 03:09:58 PM  
This really sucks for him...  by why no security system like ADT or Xfinity?  Its not like most criminals out there are actual National Treasure 2 Riley level competent...  or Bishop/Mother/Whistler/Crease/Karl..  or MacGyver...

For some reason Gronk having access to firearms concerns me.

Robbery is wrong, but I might feel bad for the guy who did this if Gronk and his brothers catch him before the police do.

Insult to injury or vice versa?

One of the guys on my local sports talk station wondered if a friend of his was somehow involved.

Around here you can call the police and they will patrol around your house a lot more often during the funeral.

False alarm. Gronk just forgot where he put his keys when he was in concussion protocol.

What are they gonna do, get some hair gel on them? Dude is big and strong but I've never heard of him being a violent guy off the field. And I doubt his investigative skills. That said I bet he has excellent insurance and a lot of it. The problem though is that he's a meathead that thinks he needs to have a safe full of cash. I imagine he bought his guns legally and will be made whole on that but keeping a bunch of cash around is stupid. I think most policies limit 'cash' coverage to a couple hundred bucks.

Read the thread.  he's going to get herpes and Axe body spray on the perp!

I'm reminded of an article about TSA employees stealing items from luggage.....they had a list of items that have been stolen in the past, and cash was mentioned.

In some cases, the owner of the luggage probably claimed there was cash in there for purposes of insurance fraud, but I also believe that there are people out there who are dumb enough to put cash in their check-in bag.

Seems like a generous dude so I'd bet not. I mean it only takes one. My money is on half the city probably knows where he lives and a very small subset of those people are burglars. Nickel says the burglar is an idiot and they eventually catch them but he'll never get the cash back. Which is a small problem at the end of the day because he can just go back to the bank and get another box full of cash. He can do that a whole lot of times without running out. I hope he does retire early and doesn't lose his mind. Gronk has to some small degree transcended the sport and he'll do well after football. Not as a broadcaster - he'd suck at that. But he could do something on camera.

Hahahaha!

I will confess that I bought some back in college (early 2000s).  During summer break, I'm back home, and sprayed some on after enjoying a cigar on the deck.  (My parents hate the smell of cigar smoke.)  My Mom immediately made her displeasure known, and told me that whatever I had sprayed on was worse than the usual smokey smell.  I threw it out shortly after that.

I am a serial change collector. I never spend it and save it up for years at the time, then I cash it in when the container is full and buy myself something stupid. I've purchased a used motorcyle, a road bike, and a nice Martin guitar over the last 15 years or so.

Anyway.... I throw all the change in the outside pocket of my checked bag along with a couple of charging cables I won't need on the flight. I also flow from Seattle to San Jose and back half a dozen times a year. Over maybe my last 25 flights I have had my phone charging cables stolen twice and my change taken three times.

This is not a cool story but the fact remains the tsa guys at either SJC or SEA have presumably risked their jobs on five occasions for less than $20 per occurrence.

F*cking jerks.  I've probably had loose change in my suitcase on occasion, but it was never taken.

*Knocks on wood*

In fact, I've never had anything stolen from my luggage...although I wonder if somebody will steal my Swiss Army knife the next time I fly.

I would hope that his business/money people are smart enough to set up correct policies for him. IE a scheduled articles policy would be appropriate as most run of the mil home policies would only offer (GENERALLY) up to $500 for cash and up to $2,500 on firearms, while nothing on collectibles or securities.

A lot of extremely rich folks will self insure for liability. And the big 5 ( State Farm, Farmers, Allstate, Nationwide and Progressive) all have a high net worth division for such types of people as well.

self admitted insurance agent and claims adjuster...thats why i dont have any friends!

Well, to be fair I'm not talking about 1.25 here. After a week out of town perhaps doing tourist shiat I might have upwards of seven or eight bucks in there. Tough to resist. And I favor overpriced charging cables - I'm sure they would be attractive to a discerning cable aficionado.

Oh wow...I've never heard of that before.


It's called a "house watch", you can request it for vacations as well.  It's also done for certain victims as well (domestic violence victims where the other keeps violating the protective order, stalking, etc...) free of charge.  Check with your local department I bet they have something similar they just haven't advertised it.

JohnBigBootay: I bet he has excellent insurance and a lot of it.


Well, he does commercials for a homeowners' insurance company.  Now he's about to find out about all the little "oh, sorry, that's not covered...there's a spending limit on those kinds of items...certain electronics and jewelry require an additional declaration policy..." tricks that insurance companies love to play.

And anyway, depending on what was taken, some things just can't be replaced.

Those guys aren't broke, why don't they pay someone to house sit.  I don't know too many people willing to turn down that gig, watching the super bowl in the home of one of the players.

litespeed74: YOu'd think their would be video cameras....


Sometimes, there are smart criminals who really do know how to case a place.  My cousin's house was hit, and they never got the people.  Which is quite interesting because my cousin and her hubby owned their own alarm security business, and their home was decked out with everything their business had to offer.  The crooks knew where the cameras were.

How old we are:

 the earliest "spygate" tapes Matt Walsh sent to the NFL started in 2000 - when Gronk was 11 years old.
"Spygate" blew up in 2007 - when Gronk was 18.

Very likely they did.  If I had that kind of stuff to lose, I would have someone being held accountable for my house security.  A bonded security guard, but have someone there.  People deter crime better than alarms and cameras.

Dumbass. If you're rich, famous, and 100 million people know you're not going to be home for eight days, take precautions. Get the rent-a-cop security folks to do extra patrols or pay one of them to stake out your driveway. Or, even simpler, get one of your leach friends to house sit.

Your cousin obviously robbed her own house for the insurance payout, and you are spilling the beans to everyone on Fark?  That's cold, man.

my first apartment was broken into - they took my laptop and the extension cable it was plugged into, and for good measure swiped the roll of laundry quarters off the kitchen counter.
