If Rob and Mark did bang these teenagers, they are in the same boat. Has jack **** to do with the media. It's really simple, honestly.
Have to disagree to some extent. Basically, it comes down to position on the team and how each player is viewed.
Gronk is basically like a Dennis Rodman. He's a star, but he's not a leader on the team nor does he have leadership responsibilities on the team.
Sanchez, on the other hand, is a leader on the team due to the position that he plays. He's expected to make better decision and to act more responsibly.
It's a double standard to be sure, and some might argue that it's unfair. But it has a completely rational basis.
If you will, it's like in a big company, if the CEO gets a DUI, he could easily lose his job. But if an hourly employee gets a DUI on the same day, he might receive some sanction from the company, but he'd most likely retain his position.
