    Can she at least dance a bit, to make this feed mildly entertaining?

    Not the one sitting on the curb. She's not there anymore. I think it was Nicole Oliverio.

    Oh, oh....here we go; see bolded portion

    We have all seen this before, i.e., Spygate. Is there any doubt outside the NE region? Just see what Florio implies (bolded portion). So fitting the destruction of evidence in this case. Hernandez said it worked for coach and the commish, why not me!


    Timing of Hernandez incident creates dilemma for NFL, Patriots

    Posted by Mike Florio on June 21, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Reuters
    When former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 2000, the situation was resolved well in advance of the opening of training camp. With Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, the timeline creates a major problem for the league, the team, and ultimately Hernandez.

    The Pats go to camp on July 26. That’s five weeks from today. It’s highly unlikely that the Hernandez situation will be resolved within the next five weeks, barring a guilty plea.

    So what will the Patriots and the league do with Hernandez on July 26? If, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network recently reported, the Pats shooed Hernandez out of the facility on Thursday because the team didn’t want the stadium to be the site of a “media stakeout,” the Patriots won’t want training camp to be overtaken by the Hernandez saga — especially if, within the next five weeks, he’s arrested, charged, and/or indicted.

    The only good news is that Tim Tebow suddenly would be attracting far less attention.

    In 2007, former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was indicted in mid-July. The NFL promptly told him to stay away from training camp. Vick didn’t fight it. In this case, perhaps Hernandez wouldn’t, either.

    But he could, if he wanted. Hernandez could argue he’s innocent until proven guilty, and he’s entitled to keep working while he awaits trial.

    Unfortunately for Hernandez, Commissioner Roger Goodell has the full discretion and authority to take action under the conduct policy, with the appeal landing back on his desk. Thus, Goodell basically can do whatever he wants.

    What he chooses to do could be be influenced by the Patriots’ wishes and desires. And that will prompt the other 31 teams to carefully scrutinize the manner in which this is handled for signs of favoritism to the Pats.

    If Hernandez weren’t a key player, it would be an easy call for New England. He’d be cut, or maybe he’d receive an offer like the one given to former Patriots defensive lineman Kyle Love after his diabetes diagnosis: Retire for a year, and then come back once the legal situation has concluded.

    With Hernandez being one of the best players on the team, cutting him become less viable. Especially since that would prevent the team from ever recovering any of the multi-million-dollar signing bonus Hernandez received in 2012.

    Goodell has historically done whatever is in Kraft's best interest. No reason to think otherwise now.

    Cap relief for his contract is a given, right?

    Watching BSPN NFL live and they are so soft soaping this whole situation about AH. It is really sickening how they crapped all over us and how they are giving the Pats every benefit. Really hope there is another sports media out fit that has the balls to bring up there hypocrisy and double standard vs/vs Jets and Pats

    His attorney Michael Fee is with him at his house. Looks like an arrest is imminent. I wonder if he has told Fee the whole truth or some line of crap?

    Wow.. these news outlets could save a fortune if they sent one pool camera and a reporter to AH's house. There are like 20 cameramen there.

    Anyone else think it's weird that those 4 big a$$ houses on AH's street are right on top of each other on postage stamp sized lots?

    The Patriots could be missing their top 5 receivers opening day.

    Breaking: Someone Sent An Edible Arrangements Bouquet To Aaron Hernandez’s Home

    Amid all the tumult surrounding Patriots’ tight end Aaron Hernandez and his possible connection to an alleged murder near his home, someone found the time to send him an Edible Arrangements Bouquet. That’s nice.

    John Atwater, a reporter for WCVB-TV in Boston, took this photo and tweeted below.




    Who’s the poor kid who had to deliver this? I’ll bet he just set the arrangement on the porch, rang the bell and ran.

    Examining Aaron Hernandez's New England Patriots contract

    By Ian Rapoport
    Reporter, NFL.com and NFL Network
    Published: June 21, 2013 at 04:26 p.m.
    Updated: June 21, 2013 at 04:43 p.m.

    In almost all situations, when an NFL player is suspended, he forfeits all of the future guarantees in his contract. Even if a signing bonus or base salary is guaranteed for skill, injury and salary cap, a "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause makes those guarantees null and void.

    In a surprising twist, this appears not to be the case with the five-year, $40-million extension signed by New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in August of 2012. Upon close reading of his contract language -- and after confirming the development with an expert -- the "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause that appears in similar Patriots extensions is not present. This means Hernandez might be able to keep nearly $2.5 million of the deal, even if legal troubles prevented him from taking the field.

    This could have a serious effect on Hernandez if he is ever suspended by the Patriots or the league for his connection to an ongoing homicide investigation in North Attleboro, Mass.

    Exactly what does this mean?

    According to his amended contract, Hernandez is guaranteed a total of $16 million. Of that, $9.25 million in a signing bonus already has been paid, with the final $3.25 million due in March 2014.

    The rest of it comes in guaranteed base salaries for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, along with $1 million total guarantees in workout bonuses for the 2014 and 2015 offseasons. According to Paragraph 32(d) of his amended contract, the workout bonus is "null and void" if the player fails to report.

    That "failure to report" clause is the one not present in the sections for his base salaries. In almost all other contracts, it would be.

    That means, even if he is suspended or unable to report for any reason, the Patriots still might be on the hook for $1.323 million in 2013 and $1.137 million in 2014. It's unclear why the "failure to perform" or "failure to practice" clause is not present in Hernandez's contract.

    Thanks to the missing clause, Hernandez might be able to keep monies that normally would have been voided even if he's not able to practice or play. For instance, the NFL recently won a grievance to show a suspended player's guarantee was no longer guaranteed after a suspension of four games.

    Hernandez's deal does have offsets. If he's eventually cut and another team signs him, his new salary would cut into the $2.5 million he's guaranteed to be paid by the Patriots.

    Neither Hernandez's representatives at Athletes First nor members of the Patriots administration were available for comment.
    WOW

    11:45 a.m.: Aaron Hernandez was asked to leave the Patriots’ facility on Thursday because the team was wary of the media circus arriving, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. There were events at the stadium (including one with Govenor Deval Patrick) and the team felt Hernandez shouldn’t be present.
