Cox isn't a franchise QB of the most popular football team in the NFL...
You are right about the media hype determining the penalty...
I wouldn't be surprised if Hernendez never plays another down... or if he gets off scott free...
Game 7 is tonight so after the NBA hype dies down over the weekend I suspect this story will get more play. One reason why Ben was hit hard was due to the story breaking right before the NFL draft... the timing was perfect for news channels and let's be real... Ben and women make for great news during a slow cycle.
Let's get real guys. This isn't some case where they are covering up the story or protecting the Patriots* (that is laughable). I will say that I said the same thing, thinking "Why isn't this front page news?" But its not because the media is being told not to cover it by the league office. The media is whores, and will say anything if it will get them ratings.
Anyone who follows Pro Football knows the Cheats tight end tandem of Hernandez and Gronk... Gronk is more noticeable because of his off the field shenanigans...
Let's see, Plaxico was out of football for awhile for shooting himself. Let's see what Hernandez gets for shooting someone else. Given the Patriot rules I would suspect he won't be allowed to start a game and will miss the first series.
1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 64 323
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
I say drug test all the Pats. Sometimes when players go off, I always wonder if it's some kind of roid rage.
This would be bigger news if Tom Brady was his driver. No one cares about Aaron Hernandez. Lebron's headband is bigger news at the moment.
Lebrons head band is definitely a bigger story than this at the moment.
ESPNNews is showing clips of Hernendez running from the cameras.... it will definitely be front page news in a fee days. They said he destroyed his phone and his security equipment. This guy ia guilty.. if he didnt pull the trigger he was definitely an accomplace.
