    Pay attention my fellow Jet fans. Once again, notice the NE trolls double-standard from the very few who have not gone MIA the past few days.

    You Sir are very insightful, but I think your points will go well beyond what the vast majority who watch football are willling to accept!

    But thank you nevertheless....

If NE players are not perfecting their game on non-game days, they are giving back in the community to various charitiable organizations. Afterall, it's the "Patriot Way."

    As I told NE troll ashole yesterday, the Patriot Way is going to be exposed with this AH case. The media is now digging. These stories will come out drip by drip. And once exposed, it will bury the myth by the sports journalists (aka, NE whores) created about the NE organization.
    +1,000,000

    When certain Jets issues take place (e.g. Braylon's DUI) all we hear from the Pats trolls is "the Jets are a circus" or "this is what you get with a guy like Rex setting the example."

    Now all we hear from Pats fans with Hernandez is that this is just one individual, maybe a bad apple. They watch Gronkowski goofing off after a Super Bowl loss or dancing with a broken arm and say, "that's Gronk just being Gronk".

    Well maybe it's really showing us what the "Patriot Way" really means. Get low character guys to win at all costs, cover your tracks and delete evidence, but keep smiling and tell the media how classy your organization is.

    What a bunch of horsesh1t!

    The Patriot way, not.

    For Aaron Hernandez, trouble has been a lingering opponent
    Saturday, June 22, 2013
    Dave Altimari, Suzanne Carlson

    Aaron Hernandez once said that rejecting UConn to play football for the University of Florida was the best decision he ever made — in part because it allowed him to get away from his hometown of Bristol.

    While Hernandez might have tried to flee what was a difficult life growing up, he has never been able to flee from trouble.

    As news surfaced that Massachusetts police were investigating what role, if any, the New England Patriots star tight end had in the death of a Boston man, the words of his former football coach at Bristol Central High School seemed prophetic.


    “Personally, I’ve always had concerns,” Coach Doug Pina said in 2010 after reports that Hernandez had fallen in the NFL draft because of positive marijuana tests while at Florida. “He’s still finding himself. With the right people around him … he’ll do very well.”

    But trouble, often tied to violence, drugs or guns, has never seemed to be far away from Hernandez — starting, some say, after his father, Dennis, died unexpectedly in January 2006.

    Hernandez put his father’s favorite quote — “if it is to be, it is up to me” — under his picture in the high school yearbook and later had it tattooed on his left arm.

    Pina and others said the loss had a significant effect on Hernandez.

    Troubles at home were not confined to Dennis Hernandez’s death at age 49. Criminal records show that Hernandez’s mother, Terri Hernandez, 54, divorced former husband Jeffrey D. Cummings in 2010 while he was incarcerated for slashing her with a knife.

    Despite the challenges, Hernandez never ran afoul of the law in Bristol, and many residents interviewed by The Courant say the superstar high school player was generous with his time and respectful to members of the community.

    “He’s actually a nice guy, very outgoing, very positive,” said Austin Raymond, 17, a student at Bristol Central High School who said he had run into Hernandez at school over the years.

    Bristol residents looked forward to the short trip to watch the hometown hero play for UConn, where Hernandez had made an oral commitment during his senior year at Bristol Central.


    But three months after his father’s death, Hernandez backed out of his pledge to play for the Huskies, where his brother, D.J., was a quarterback, to attend Florida. He committed to the Gators on the same day he made a recruiting visit, hosted by Tim Tebow, then a freshman quarterback and now a fellow Patriot. The decision “shocked” Terri Hernandez, she said at the time.

    Within months of beginning his collegiate football career in Gainesville, Fla., Hernandez was one of four players interviewed by police after an early morning shooting at a night club left two men wounded. No one was ever charged in the shootings of Justin Glass and Corey Smith, and Gainesville police said Friday they would not release the police report because it is still considered an open investigation.

    Hernandez played football for three years at Florida, winning a national championship before declaring one year early his intention to enter the NFL draft. The Patriots drafted Hernandez in the fourth round — well below what his talent projected and after the draft rumors spread that he had tested positive for marijuana multiple times while at Florida. Hernandez also had been suspended by Florida for one game for failing a drug test.

    Concerns were also raised that Hernandez was hanging around with an entourage of unsavory friends.

    “We stayed away,” one unnamed NFL team scout told CBSSports.com, “because we hated the people he hung out with and how trouble always seemed to find this guy.”

    Hernandez was only 20 when he was drafted by the Patriots, but he had an immediate impact on the field. In three seasons with the Patriots, he has caught 175 passes for 1,956 yards and 18 TDs. He signed a seven-year, $41 million contract before last season.

    In 2012, Hernandez and his Bristol Central High School sweetheart, Shayanna Jenkins, moved into the North Attleborough, Mass., home that has become a center of the police investigation into the slaying of 27-year-old Odin L. Lloyd, whose bullet ridden body was found in an industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez’s home.

    Lloyd was the boyfriend of Jenkins’ sister, Shaneah, also a Bristol Central graduate.

    There have been reports that Hernandez and Lloyd were seen drinking in at least one Boston bar the night before Lloyd was shot.

    Hernandez and Shayanna Jenkins have a daughter, who was born in November 2012. At the time, Hernandez said the new contract and fatherhood had helped him grow up. But trouble still followed.

    In February — a few months after his daughter’s birth — Hernandez got into a fight with a friend at a South Florida strip club, according to a recently filed civil lawsuit. When they left Tootsie’s, East Hartford resident Alexander Bradley claims in the federal suit, Hernandez shot him in the face, resulting in Bradley losing his right eye.

    Bradley, who records indicate has a 2006 conviction for selling drugs, refused to tell Palm Beach County sheriffs who shot him, according to a Florida police report. So the criminal investigation was dropped. The nature of Hernandez’s relationship with Bradley is unclear.

    Last month, Hernandez was involved in an incident in Providence, where, reports indicate, he was a target of potential violence from a New York Jets fans who were heckling him.

    As police intervened to stop a possible confrontation involving a crowd that began following the football star, one man tossed a gun under a car, according to police reports. Police seized the gun but did not make an arrest.

    Among the coaches who have counseled Hernandez through the years is UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma. Two days after winning the 2003-04 national women’s basketball championship, Auriemma began coaching the Connecticut Nike Elite AAU boys’ basketball team on which his son, Michael Auriemma, and Hernandez would play.

    “Aaron an amazing kid and he has grown into a fabulous professional athlete,” Auriemma once told The Courant. “When he signed with Patriots, I talked to him. I told him he better work hard because Coach (Bill) Belichick is a no-nonsense guy. I told him no screwing around.”

    We have to be more forgiving with our halfwits known as chowd trolls.

    Reason is simple. Until January 2002 when Walt Coleman invented the tuck rule to reverse the most obvious fumble in NFL history and create the first ever double elimination postseason in history, there were no Pat fans. Chowderheads spent the fall and winter engaged in Red Sux hot stove talk, watching their Septics or Broons, eating Lobstah rolls or going duckpin bowling. The couple thousand interested in Pro Football were Giant fans.
    Shaeffer/Sullivan Craphole was so deserted that the Pats owner was in serious negotiations to move his sorry basement dwellers to St Louis.

    Then came Coleman's Boner and the arrival of all the "longtime diehard" chowd trolls doing their darnedness to ruin JI

    And please do not forget Alfonzo Dennard, who was found guilty of felony assault of a police officer and will go to the slammer next March for a month plus 2 years probation (thanks to $$, surely regular folk would get several years for this).

    Or perhaps it might be Maine not wanting to call a lawyer because lawyers are higher on the food chain and he is liable to get eaten.

    Well, only chowd idiots can call "moral character" Belicheat, a scumbag who stole money from a dying old man, cheated with other man wife (fedexing her cash from team headquarters, I assume dipping into Krafty "zebra fund"), sending his LB to almost certain death against advise of trainers and medcal stuff, biggest cheater in a history of NFL.. Shall we say more about moral values he shares with his chowd admirers and worshipers?

    Add to this his total lack of sportsmanship shown to opposing teams and coaches (What spygate reaaly showed IMO) and you have a significant problem for Bellichick going forward!!!

    But how is that any different than Rex Ryan? Santonio Holmes? Braylon Edwards?

    Both of those players had character concerns. Before RR arrived the Jets FO went quite a long time without having any problematic players. But after he arrived they started picking up diva WR's.

    That means RR was willing to deal with the character concerns because of the return in talent.

    Now, I don't fault RR for doing what he did. He was trying to win the SB and he came damn close.

    But how is that any different than BB?

    I mean you can't honestly be thinking that BB was willing to deal with AH MURDERING someone just because he had talent? That's stupid.

    BB took a calculated gamble which is no different than what RR does.

    Its a shame what happened to that man who was killed, regardless who killed him.

    But fck the high and mighty, "Rex is to be blamed for all incidents" Past fans hypocrites.

    “We stayed away,” one unnamed NFL team scout told CBSSports.com, “because we hated the people he hung out with and how trouble always seemed to find this guy.”

    Gotta love these "unnamed sources" coming out now to tell the truth about Hernandez, now that someone's dead because of Hernandez's actions.

    If there wasn't such hero worship from ESPNBOSTONGLOBECBSNBCABC about the Pats and the Patriot Way perhaps the victim would still be alive.

    No doubt the Pats get preferential treatment but you're taking a huge leap there.
