Default Aaron Hernandez is a "good dude".

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-...r-and-paranoid

Since being arrested in June, Aaron Hernandez has written several jailhouse letters and in one of those letters he insisted that he's a 'great dude.' If you have a hard time believing Hernandez is a 'great dude' you're going to have an even harder time after reading new evidence uncovered by Rolling Stone.

In what could turn out to be a bombshell article, the magazine will be publishing a cover story on Hernandez in its October issue. The magazine released a small preview of the story on Tuesday, a preview that will probably make you want to read the entire article.

Here are five revelations from the preview:

Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust (PCP), and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went.

He surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters, and cut himself off from his family and teammates.

Hernandez had so infuriated his head coach, Bill Belichick, with missed practices and thug-life stunts, that he was one misstep from being cut.

Both his parents, Dennis and Terri, had criminal records, as did much of his extended family.

Terri allegedly cheated on Dennis before his death with a violent drug dealer named Jeffrey Cummings, then married Cummings after Dennis died and moved him into the house she shared with Aaron.
Although Rolling Stone only promised five revelations, they delivered on a sixth one and the sixth one might be the most damning.

From Rolling Stone:

In college [Hernandez's] coach [then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer] may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents -- an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar.
Unlike the first five revelations though, the magazine doesn't seem as sure about the Meyer revelation, using the word 'MAY have helped' isn't exactly an indictment on Meyer, so it will be definitely be interesting to see what exactly the magazine found to make the connection that Meyer covered-up anything for Hernandez.

Rolling Stone hasn't announced a release date for the Hernandez issue, but it will be on newsstands sometime in September.

Hernandez, who's facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of Odin Lloyd, is due back in court for an arraignment on Sept. 6.

If this allegation is credible, the NCAA should look into it. Paterno was butchered for supposedly covering up a crime, and he wasn't even around to defend himself...

Bellicheat still owes Hernandez 82K

The NFL Players Association has formally filed a grievance over the New England Patriots' non-payment of an $82,000 workout bonus for Aaron Hernandez's participation in the club's offseason program, union sources said Monday.

The NFLPA also issued the following statement:

"On behalf of all players, it is our responsibility to protect the rights in the collective bargaining agreement. We are not tone-deaf to what the allegations are in this case, but for the benefit of all players, there are important precedents here we must protect."

I agree Rolling Stone sucks. But they get credit for Lindsay Lohan's last magazine cover where she appeared hot.



That was 2004, so I guess they haven't done much since of note.

He owes him a LOT more than that. There is a 3.2 million portion of signing bonus that hasn't been paid yet as well as a roster bonus that was guaranteed for about 180k all of which is he entitled to because they cut him.

Hernandez will soon be on the top of this list.

Top 10 NFL Prison Sentences

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...ntences/page/8

Stanley Wilson .....

Inarguably, the most notorious instance of Wilson's relapse into cocaine usage was on the eve of Super Bowl XXIII, where the Bengals were to play the San Francisco 49ers. Wilson told several teammates that he needed to get his playbook before their last meeting prior to the game. Twenty minutes later, his position coach, Jim Anderson, found him in the bathroom, deep in the throes of a cocaine high. The Bengals had no choice but to leave him off the roster. Wilson's relapse was his third offense under the NFL's drug policy, and he was banned from the league for life. It has been argued that the loss of Wilson may have contributed to the Bengals' loss to the 49ers. The field at Joe Robbie Stadium was somewhat muddy that night, but Wilson usually excelled in these conditions.

Clearly you do care or you wouldn't have commented on it. And clearly it is news because it's all over the place and creating a lot of buzz.

Seriously, if these allegations are true and it occurred while he was in the NFL then there has to be a big investigation on how he got around the tests and if there was some outside assistance to do it.
