    Aaron Hernandez Might be Cut from my Fantasy Team

    He's possibly involved in two shootings, my fantasy team can't have that type of bad publicity.

    I was reading a story about it and I scrolled down to the comments and the top comment and response is hilarious.

    Just to be clear it's not the "future Bengal" that's funny. I'm not a Bengals fan but I can't believe anyone still thinks that's funny but the response is awesome.

    With every update this story with Hernandez gets worse.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Allegedly, directly tied to the murder victim on the night of the murder.

    In the unfolding story that is Aaron Hernandez's future, things went from bad to worse on Wednesday. Police confirmed Wednesday night that the body found near Hernandez's home Monday was that of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, of Dorchester. His death has been deemed a homicide. A law enforcement official tells FOX 25 Hernandez appears to be directly tied to the homicide which is why authorities executed a search warrant at his home Tuesday night. According to the same source, Hernandez, Lloyd, and two other men were at a bar in Boston the night of the homicide, and at some point, the four men left together in a car driven by Hernandez which was confirmed by a text Lloyd sent another friend, the source says.

    Umm...I don't think he's cleared just yet.

    "@SportsCenter: Aaron Hernandez has not been ruled out as a suspect in the homicide of a semi-pro football player, law enforcement sources told ABC News."

    "@NBCSports: BREAKING: Aaron Hernandez will reportedly be arrested in connection with murder: http://t.co/HQDfwYroiE"

    "He [Hernandez] has not been ruled out. We are not calling him a suspect, but he is definitely not in the clear," said one police official close to the investigation.

    That story was posted 40 mins ago. Where did you read he was cleared?

    And people wondered why Belichick claimed Jake Ballard last season.

    Re: Aaron Hernandez Might be Cut from my Fantasy Team

    Is there anything to the story of the lawsuit alleging that Hernandez shot off his gun at a Miami club and some dude lost his eye???

    The story, as of yesterday was that he wasn't a suspect, which is where I suspect the "don't worry he's been cleared" comment comes from. Of course when they head back to your house a 2nd day, me thinks somebody thinks your at least a little bit suspicious, or at least someone connected to that house.

    another thought, I haven't followed this closely, but I just read that thru his lawyer they stated (paraphrasing) "out of respect for the investigation, Aaron will not comment on this case" there is also a rumor that he's not been cooperating with the police.

    Now, you can't try a guy based upon his willingness to talk to the cops, nor his willingness to speak on the subject to the general population, but if it were me, and I was 100% in the clear, I'd sure as heck be talking to the police all I could, I'd definently be making statements to the public.

    Here's what I know, there were 4 people in that car when it left the club. 3 of them returned, 1 was found w/ a bullet to the head. Somebody's got a story to tell; if there is a coverup, they won't be able to keep the story straight b/w 3 people.

    No.

    Talking to the police in this sort of situation can do nothing but hurt him, whether he's guilty or not. The police are looking to use any statements made to mine for lies, ANY inconsistency etc. He could think he's being completely honest and forthright and still screw himself badly.

    He should lawyer up, keep quiet, and see what happens.

    Making public statements is a horrible idea as well.

    Well that's because its looking likely that he's not 100% in the clear, at least in some regards, if not down right guilty of murder.

    Are you suggesting that if the police showed up at my door asking questions about a neighbor's house being broken into, and I know I didn't do it, can produce an alibi that I should stonewall the police even if I have a clue or two that could be helpful???

    As a general rule of thumb, it isn't in your best interest to make a statement without consulting a lawyer and making sure your statement is completely consistent and truthful. It's probably not necessary in the case that you've outlined given that it's not a super serious offense, particularly if you have no reason to think that you'd be considered a suspect.

    Murder is a whole different ball of wax and anyone who doesn't lawyer up when being questioned is certifiably crazy.
