Meh, competition brings out some raw emotions.  Can't judge the guy completely on one impulsive act during an NFL contest.

 

Nice to see the "OKAY to cheap shot Bills fans" out of closet.

I could get your argument if he apologized but he didn’t. He stated in the post game interview he acted the way he did because he felt he was being held the whole game.. Like what? It’s not like this was an OBJ and Norman altercation. He acted out like a child having a tantrum because he wasn’t getting his way.

It seems only fitting that Gronk that as he left his mark on the NFL he left his final mark on the last trophy he helped the Pats win while he played !!

 

The guy is one of a kind there will never be another Gronk !!

He jumped into a defenseless person laying on the ground with a metal brace with the intent to cause harm.  I can't believe someone can blow it off this way.  There's no defense for behaving the way he did.  He could've hurt Tre far more than he did and didn't even show remorse for it.  Lost all respect for him after his "apology".

? - "Williamsville North" and "meathead" are not things I'd associate with each other. The meathead left before his senior year anyway for a true meathead (i.e., D1 jock factory) in the Pittsburgh area. 

The meathead was already a 4* recruit and Left north for an academic dispute that went down quietly 

 

He wasn’t gonna leave originally 

 

iirc he was ruled ineligible originally to play in PA. The HS governing body in PA says you can be ineligible if you transfer for athletic reasons 

 

after a fight he was ruled eligible because they argued it was an academic reason as well

They looked deliberately over the top.  Every thing that team does is an eff you to the league and other fan bases.

 

Who knows if they’ll ever have down years again.  But if they do, I’ll relish every loss and blowout just as much as Bills wins.

Yeah. I don't have any real problem with fights. They're part of the game in a manner of speaking. What Gronkowski did was assault and should have been prosecuted.

I am sure some in thread think Suh's stomping of players was just enthusiasm.

He's the archetype of the Williamsville North Meathead that I knew so well back in high school.

I can’t stand the whole “lovable goofball” persona he has with everyone.  My whole perception of him changed after that late hit on Tre.  He’s scum.

He's a competitor.  Sometimes emotion overcomes people.  The fact that he cares is one of the reasons he's a winner.

I have complete respect for Gronk's accomplishments and effort over the years.  Arguably the best at his position.  Unfortunaly my lasting memory will be the decision he made to hit Tre.

I hope if you put together a nine-year career and do everything right except for one split-second decision, that you're not judged solely on said decision.  That certainly wouldn't be fair or logical.

Interesting take.  How do you know this?  From what I've read, he's a 30-year-old retired multi-millionaire who's been more responsible with his earnings than most professional athletes.  He's never been in trouble.  He'll end up in the Hall of Fame.  The guy's got the world by the balls.

 

And you're calling him a a moron.  I think he'd get a chuckle out of that.

are you watching the blindside hit on Tre' White (a defenseless player  again? 

 

Dronk (drunk Gronk) I was a little emotional at the time (insert the rest of the lie) .

We all know its more that that "one hit".  

 

The guy who has lead the league in called and uncalled OPI's ....  and cried when he was flagged on it.

That was but one item on his LIST!  If He's being judged it's the whole package, rather than one event.

This happens on nearly every incompletion in every game by every team.  But yeah .... let's let it taint Rob Gronkowski's career.

We can't keep giving stuff like this an excuse.  That type of behavior is wrong in any sports setting no matter how you slice it.  

 

If you keep making excuses for impulsive people, they stay impulsive for the rest of their lives.  

 

Incident seemed like a one-off in Gronk's career.  Obviously it was poor behavior, but my point was that this is the most violent sport on the planet, it would be ignorant to expect instances like this to never occur.

It's easy to do understand if you remove any emotional connection you have to the Bills and Patriots.  And then look at the product that the NFL delivers.  Not shocking to see something like that happen on the field.

I'm not tainting anything ...  It's a known fact Dronk was a chronic OPI offender 

https://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/251096/still-confused-by-offensive-pass-interference-youre-not-alone

 

 For every OPI foul this season, officials have called four for defensive pass interference, defensive holding or illegal contact. But as the chart indicates, OPI was once a relatively rare occurrence, called less than five times per week in the NFL.

 

So really to get caught .....  you had to do something noticeable
