    The timing is about right aint it? About the same time of year? If the glove don't fit you must acquit.

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink? Stories seem to explain that Hernandez liked to hang with a bad crowd of people.

    And people thought Gronkowski was the wild card.

    This was pretty well known. His background and problem with marijuana were a large reason he dropped in the draft as far as he did.

    Yes, the youthful Hernandez had well known issues. And despite "growing up" (aging) and getting a large amount of money to play football, he has not separated himself from trouble and the bad people.

    I had issues when I was young as well. I imagine that all of us might have in one way or another. However, it is simply amazing to me how many of these athletic stars show no responsibility or even worse no maturity. Are they to believe that they are above the law? Are they to believe there are no consequences to their actions? Are they to believe they are Gods?

    They have a life that a lot of us dream about and aspire for. Why do so many wad it up and throw it in a trash can? Pitiful.

    For the reasons you stated in the first paragraph. Because of their athleticism, they were allowed to get away with things others weren't. In high school. In college. In the pros. So of course they don't always mature and stop doing stupid things or being around stupid people. Why would they? They have been able to get away with those things for a long time now because they can do things with a ball that most people can't.

    Aside from actual murder, they probably feel they can get out of whatever situation they get themselves into because they are "Generic Athlete". They always have been able to do so in the past.

    Somehow I just don't buy that. I understand the ideology, but it doesn't work for me.

    And Dante Stallworth proved even murder is not out of the realm of possibilities

    I can't get too worked up over Stallworth. I mean, he tried to do the responsible thing (he spent the night somewhere before driving home), and even someone at 0.00 likely would have hit the person he did if in the same place at the same time. Just a horrible set of circumstances there.
