I’m more embarrassed for the NFL that their trophy is that cheaply made.

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.

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".

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.

He is not a lovable goofball.  He is a moron, with the mental acuity and maturity level of a 12 year old.  

 

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) .

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

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

That's an officiating flaw more than a Gronk problem.  Everyone knows that Bill Belichick's M.O. is to take advantage of broken rules until they get caught.

Yes, thankfully he only elbowed somebody to the back of their neck once in his career.  The sport is violent enough without the added assault.  This has nothing to do with me being a Bills fan and him a Patriot.  I actually was a fan before.  It has to do with what he did and then him not even really apologizing for it.  He shrugged it off like it was just part of the game even with the suspension.  I just can't believe someone can see what he did and say, "hey it's football".

I probably wouldn't be rushing to apologize either if I had years of people targeting my knees and head throughout my career.

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 !! 

 

Not only do you break the mold you take the pieces into a volcano and melt the pieces.
