Drink up Gronk! Drink up and party. Party and party some more. Smoke some weed. Hoover up some rails. Pop some pain pills. Snort a little more candy. The more Gronk parties the deeper he gets in and the shorter his career will be. Maybe a suspension. Maybe he loses a step. Any little minute backslide for Gronk is a minute step forward for the Jets. The Pats are a big road block in our way and a less effective Gronk can only help the Jets.
I think that's exactly how I would look at it if I were a Jets fan. I'd tell him to PARTY ON DUDE!
Actually he isn't, he's still on his first contract, the first contract was extended and the extension doesn't take place until after this year.
But I love how every time a Patriot is flogged by the media the pat trolls immediately try to dump on a Jet. If this were Sanchez, you would be raking him through the coals.
Extended first contract, second contract, whatever... my post was solely in response to "jetsfreak" who called Gronk a "veteran," lol. I didn't really mean to bring Sanchez into this, but he's 3 1/2 years older than Gronk and still gets the kid-glove treatment by some around here... but yet Gronk should somehow have all of his **** together already.
Gronk is starting to remind me of Jeremy Shockey (yeah, yeah, Gronk is already much better than Shockey was). Starting off your career great and then partying too much, getting injured and never fully meeting expectations. He is still young and could be a HOFer at TE, but his lifestyle would worry me if i was pats fan.
There is a certain amount of professional responsibility that he needs to have, but after that it's just that. He's allowed to have a personal life without violating the terms of his contract and the NFL personal conduct policy.
Braylon Edwards got a DUI, and was benched for a quarter. By comparison Gronk has done nothing to warrant any kind of negative attention.
Shaun Ellis was arrested for marijuana. That went away quickly.
Sanchez with an underage girl.
Gronk looks like an idiot in that video, but hey, he's an idiot millionaire with a bunch of hot girls chasing after him (in his early 20's).
If he wants to be taken seriously off the field, he should act accordingly, but for now he's only taken seriously on the field, which is where it matters most, IMO.
Whoa Rah Rah Whoa!!! There's so much difference between Gronks contract extension and Butt Fumble extension.
Yes, actually, there is.
The contract Gronk received was a new multi-million dollar deal that pays him at the top of the league for his position, and if I recall, the contract he did receive was one of the highest in history for his position, and was given with every intention of keeping him long term throughout the contract.
Sanchez' contract was given to him as a cap move, with the intent to pay him long term at a discount if he continued to progress, but the team built an "out" in his contract after this year, but essentially pushed forward the cap number he would have counted against the cap last year to this coming year.
