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.

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.

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.
