Hernandez revelations in RS (WOW)

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Holy crap!! Distractions off field mean distractions on field. I do not want to even mention our favorite team's last year, but we really understand that and that is not to say we did not before last year. Seems this ...

Re: Hernandez revelations in RS (WOW)

Holy crap!!
Distractions off field mean distractions on field.
I do not want to even mention our favorite team's last year, but we really understand that and that is not to say we did not before last year.
Seems this year, NE Pats will , should be anyway, the weekly topic for commentators.
It is going to be interesting and that is if the commentators do not go all scary and not talk about this case .
It seems it is what did the NE Pats know and when did they know it kind of thing.

According to that RS article, it seems AH told NE Pats he was in trouble, etc.
Seems they should have cut him June 2013. Seems they should have helped him with a safe house somewhere and told the police and just things like this not really out of caring for this guy, but to clear themselves.
That is always the number one thing to do and most improtant thing to do is clear themselves and legally.

Seems HC Belli and Kraft might end up in court as a witness for the defense, AH. That is not the type of defense they want to be associated with in the NFL, LOL!
I really thought it was useless from a pr point for NE Pats to even address AH situation. Let it and him go. "It is in the hands of the law and we cannot comment" would have a been a good, simple answer.

More information from the RS writer.
Interesting questions he is asking...what if cases.

Re: Hernandez revelations in RS (WOW)

"There are many ways to burn bridges with your former employer, but finding yourself arrested, imprisoned, indicted and associated with two separate homicide investigations has to rank way up there in "things you'll have to explain in a future job interview."

[Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football is open for business]

Even so, there's at least some suggestion that jailed former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez might be able to play football again were he to avoid life in prison. Paul Solotaroff, who wrote the Rolling Stone article profiling Hernandez's history that was published this week, indicates that Hernandez could have a future playing ball.

"I think [the case] is not only beatable, I think he will be back in the NFL within three or four years," Solotaroff said on the Doug Gottlieb Show. "I think they've grossly overcharged him based on the case they're building — no direct eye witness, no murder weapon, no plausible motive."

That's a stunning sentiment given the last eight weeks of information, but Solotaroff broke down the issue on judicial lines. "His principal nemesis at this point is likely to be the five gun charges levied against him; I think they got him dead to right on most of those," Solotaroff said. "But as crazy as it sounds, this is a guy with no priors. So asking a judge to sentence Hernandez to consecutive prison bids — rather than contemporary ones — is going to be a very hard sell for the prosecution. And if in fact he winds up doing three years behind [bars for] those gun charges — which would be a lot in this case — he's 26, 27, with very low mileage on those legs of his and a lot of time to heal up. My sources tell me there will be more than one NFL team pursuing him hotly when he walks out of jail in four years."

There's a lot of supposition in that theory, but as has been noted before, a conviction of Hernandez is no sure thing. And while the Rolling Stone article has come under criticism based on its handling of Hernandez's days at the University of Florida, is it so impossible to think that another NFL team could take a chance on Hernandez if he were cleared of all but the weapons charges? Michael Vick was found guilty of a series of heinous charges — please note that this is not intended to equate murder charges with animal cruelty — and yet he's back to being the Eagles' starting quarterback.

In the end, it's all but certain that Hernandez's playing days are behind him, whether or not he's a free man in coming years. Still, there's always the possibility. America does love a redemption story.

Re: Hernandez revelations in RS (WOW)

Q, I cannot imagine any team would. Totally bad pr here. Yes, I know, look back at Vick and even Lewis.
I did not agree with those choices either.
AH might, one who loves the NFL would think is the first one not allowed back in and last one not allowed back in of taking in felon ,criminals on a team.

Re: Hernandez revelations in RS (WOW)

I know OldMaid, but American's love to forgive and forget. Give the man a second chance. Their have been a few guys in the No Fun League that have taken other peoples lives and still got to play in the NFL.

Same here. ( I did not agree with those choices either. )
