I don't know if this has been posted but I think it says a lot about Hernandez. Matt Light:

It says a lot more about Bellichick and the Patriots organization, who got rid of Wes Welker so they could focus their Offense around the psychopath Hernandez.

Patriots players knew Hernandez was an a-hole...yet the FO and coaching staff embraced him.

Well lets be fair. They may be in these guys every business but players still have personal lives and the team can only control so much.

You might brush over it initially, but their choice was real. Hernandez went off on Welker when he was a rookie, and has always been an arrogant a-hole. The Patriots rewarded him ($40M contract), and planned to feature him in 2012 and 2013...even dropping Welker. Bellichick promotes rudeness and arrogance, and 'win' by any means necessary. Hernandez was his type of guy.

I'm not saying they thought he would be a killer, but they certainly liked his brazen behavior.

while I agree most blacks had sympathy for OJ and acted like douches shouting "We won!" when he was acquitted I don't think it was blacks letting a murderer go just because he was black.

I recall a guy telling me "given OJ's history of smacking his wife around, he has to be guilty..." to which I asked, "OK, so then given Mark Furhman's history of making racist comments means he has to be guilty of planting evidence?"

I'm a caucasian, and if the evidence Dr. Lee wrote about was actually what the jurors saw and heard, I too would have had reasonable doubt.....for instance the cut on OJ's finger was caused by the ferocity of the attack...however how does someone cut their finger while wearing gloves without cutting the gloves? If you're shot, there's not only a bullet hole in you...but also your clothing, correct?

Keep in mind it doesn't mean he didn't kill them (I'm guessing he knows who did)...it just means the defense was not able to prove he did beyond a reasonable doubt.

Not to mention the day they drew OJ's blood there were 3 places Van Atter could have taken it to book it....instead he drove out to the crime scene with it to allegedly give it to the medical examiner.....WTF would you do that?

There was also a police video of the inside of OJ's house during the investigation....at 2:15pm they pan around OJ's bedroom and it showed the bed with nothing on the floor in front of it.....at 2:30pm they panned again and on the floor in front of the bed is a pair of socks...the ones that allegedly were worn the night of the murder according to prosecution.

Again...I think if he didn't actually slice them up, he probably knows who did...but based on following the letter of the law and the evidence Dr. Lee presented in his book, I honestly think I would have had a reasonable doubt.

Maybe Odin was involved in the other killings he's suspected of and Hernandez was just tying up loose ends?

Let's say he invests that money in blue chip stocks that are high dividend payers and conservatively, he gets 5% per year. That would mean he could spend the rest of his life living on a beach in the Bahamas with a cool $1.5 million rolling in every year, and he doesn't even touch the capital. In the years he chooses not to spend that much, he can roll it back in and get more back per annum.

The stupidity of some of these guys is incomprehensible to me.
Escpecially considering he's allegedly college educated

I don't know if anyone has posted these yet. Witty.

I was only looking for a certain one - and got carried away.

I never underrstood that. I'm not much of a cluber, but I have gone before, and the ratio of times I've gone and times I've seen an altercation is low. That is, it seems like every time I go out I see something happen.

The hilarious line I hear is "do you know who I am?"

Yeah I think you're the guy at Home Depot who refilled my gas grill tank.

I wouldn't go to any sort of "club" for any reason nowadays, glad those days are behind me... nothing like consorting with a bunch of young, immature idiots who pump their chest out with something to prove... lol

still in a little disbelief that Hernandez likely killed 3 people, and who knows if there are more as investigators dig into his past. Man, i shoud have been so easy- don't put yourself in a bad situation, hire 3 bodyguards and live a great life.... man, tragic

The last time I went to a club it was on the strip district in Pittsburgh. I was 24 or 25. Jerome Bettis was there and all these girls were crowding around where he was sitting. Girl fights sometimes are the funniest things. Especially when they start throwing out "you know who I am?" A drunk white chick? Stop bumping me with those daggers you call elbows.
