Aaron Hernandez! Come on Down (the River) !!

Crazy doings by Aaron Hernandez, the former $41 million dollar tight end of the New England Patriots.  He and Gronk were supposed to be the twin TE terrors in the AFC this year, but Gronk is still nursing his broken and infected arm, and, well, Hernandez is looking down the barrel of a murder charge. The evidence is apparently overwhelming, and the lastest I’ve heard comes from (!) Rotowire:

Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, and is facing five additional gun charges. Hernandez has pled not guilty, but is being held without bail. We are not legal scholars — it’s surreal for a fantasy football site to have to cover such a senseless and macabre event — but the evidence the Attleboro District Court has collected against Hernandez over the past week appears damning bordering on overwhelming. Hernandez is alleged to have erased 6-8 hours of video footage from his home-security system, and was reportedly caught on tape saying “you can’t trust anyone anymore” before picking Lloyd up on the night of the murder. He was also caught on film walking through his home with a gun after the murder is alleged to have taken place, and reportedly left behind a shell-casing in a rental car. The prosecution believes Hernandez “orchestrated” the “execution.” This is just the first day of what is going to be a long and drawn out legal process, but the odds are remarkably high that Hernandez has played his last down of NFL football.

Here’s the contract he signed last year:

Sven-years $41.115 million. $16.4 million guaranteed, including a $12.5 million signing bonus. An annual  $500,000 roster bonus is due in years four through seven. An annual $500,000  workout bonus is available in years three through seven.
2013: $1.323 million,
2014: $1.2 million,
2015: $2.3 million,
2016: $5 million,
2017: $6 million,
2018: $6 million,
2019: Free Agent

Yikes. can’t say what drove him to murder, but yowza, he’s lost it all . . .

    There are no words. Well, okay, there are two: STUPID FUCKER.

  2. 12th man says:

    Whatever money the Pats don’t get back will be spent by Hernandez on lawyers. Even Johnny Cochran couldn’t get this idiot off.

  3. 12th man says:

    If he was still alive of course.

  4. Winder says:

    It really does make you wonder. All i can say is “have a nice day Aaron.”

  5. Nipper says:

    Texas just executed the 500th person since ’82. Lots of murderers in Texas.

    • Winder says:

      yeah, they execute more people than all the other states combined I believe. I think FLA is a distant 2nd.

      • Nipper says:

        If one doesn’t have a mounted gun rack on his or her pick-up in Texas……well it’s dangerous out there! And a firearm under the seat and in the glove box is needed for good measure!

    “Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty… mine’s (Texas) putting in an express lane.”

    —Ron White

    “You can’t fix stupid.” Safe to say that applies to Aaron Hernandez.

    • Grumpy Guy says:

      Well, capital punishment would fix his particular stupid, but Massachusetts does not have that, so he’ll just be stupid in a small confined space for most of the rest of his life.

  7. NoFear49er says:

    Sounds like there are 500 less murderers in Texas now.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    What’s the error rate? 10%? That means 50 innocent guys fried. Oh well. Justice evens out in the end, right?

  9. Del Mar Dennis says:

    Very good chance that Aaron Hernandez’s last TD catch ever in the NFL came vs the 49ers last December. At least he has that going for him.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, story is he’s involved in a drive-by double-murder in Boston.

    Oooops.

  11. NoFear49er says:

    Chuck, do you mean to say you object to having your stupid pick-any-number-out-of-thin-air argument thrown back at you? I’m not surprised.

    What happened to your bold 10%, 50 innocent guys fried, claim?

    Me work as one of Barry’s minions? Not freakin’ likely.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Well, based on the number of wrongly convicted people being let out of prison these days due to DNA evidence, the number out of my ass is a hell of a lot closer than yours. Party on, Wayne.
