    ESPN bashing "The Patriot Way":

    The New England Patriots seem to be trying to do
    the right thing. Now.
    Now that they know Aaron Hernandez has been
    accused of executing an associate. Now that their
    star tight end is behind bars facing murder and
    weapons charges, denied bail and awaiting a trial
    that likely won't start until next year.
    Hernandez is worthless to the Patriots now, and the
    organization is going to great lengths to
    disassociate itself from him. Less than two hours
    after his arrest last week, New England cut
    Hernandez and removed his jersey from its pro
    shop at Gillette Stadium. This weekend, the Patriots
    will allow fans to exchange any Hernandez jersey
    that was bought at the stadium for another of equal
    value at no charge. Out with Hernandez, and in with
    Tim Tebow.
    But it isn't that simple and can't be that neat.
    ... in the
    immediate aftermath of this heinous story ... it
    can't be forgotten that New England was the
    organization that employed Hernandez. The Patriots
    chose Hernandez. Not once. Twice. They were the
    team that decided, since Hernandez had fallen into
    the fourth round of the 2010 draft, that the value of
    taking Hernandez trumped the risk of selecting a
    player with character issues.
    They were the team that picked Hernandez 113th
    overall -- after 31 other teams had repeatedly
    passed on a player who was viewed as a first-
    round talent -- because he was big and strong and
    could catch the football and make their team
    better.
    And the Patriots were the team that renegotiated
    Hernandez's rookie contract....
    two years before it was set to
    expire. They were the ones who gave Hernandez a
    five-year deal worth $37.5 million, including a $12.5
    million signing bonus.
    The Patriots financially rewarded Hernandez
    because he had produced and, with Rob
    Gronkowski, gave the team the most potent,
    productive tandem of tight ends in the National
    Football League.
    Given what Hernandez now is accused of in a story
    that gets more grisly by the day, New England
    tarnished its brand by choosing Hernandez twice,
    and it will take more than a jersey exchange to wipe
    that tarnish away. It will take time. And better
    choices. ...
    The team can try to collect and burn every No. 81
    jersey it has sold, but it can't erase the fact that
    Hernandez wore a Patriots jersey for three seasons.
    Hernandez was part of the Patriot Way ....
    Team owner Robert Kraft is to blame. So is coach
    Bill Belichick. They made the choice to gamble on
    Hernandez....
    they knew he had issues...
    Kraft is one of the most respected owners in the
    NFL, yet his organization -- his brand -- is now
    indelibly tarnished. He did the right thing once
    Hernandez was arrested, something Dallas owner
    Jerry Jones hopefully noticed, given Jones' refusal
    to part ways with Josh Brent. But for Kraft, it was
    too little, too late.
    NFL teams go to great lengths to investigate
    prospects before either drafting them or signing
    them. Most employ skilled, veteran security
    personnel. The NFL is big business. And some
    teams are more willing than others to employ young
    men who have sketchy pasts as long as the player
    has talent and can produce on the field.
    Kraft must now make sure that his franchise
    doesn't select players or gamble in the draft just
    because the Patriots hope the value outweighs the
    risk. ...
    Former Patriots offensive tackle Matt Light told the
    Dayton Daily News last week that he "never
    embraced, never believed in anything Aaron
    Hernandez stood for." If Light could come to that
    conclusion based on his interaction as a teammate
    of Hernandez's, certainly the Patriots' brass could
    have done the same, if they would have allowed
    themselves to not be blinded by Hernandez's talent
    and the relentless pursuit of another Lombardi
    trophy. ...
    there will forever be a stain on the franchise
    that neither the swift release of Hernandez nor the
    exchange of jerseys can erase. Odin Lloyd is dead.
    He was buried on Saturday. Hernandez is in jail
    awaiting trial. There undoubtedly are more
    gruesome details to come.
    Hernandez was part of the Patriot Way because he
    could catch passes and make the team more
    successful. The franchise, led by Kraft, needs to
    recalibrate

    Boston Herald:

    Accused killer and ex-Patriots tight end Aaron
    Hernandez told Bristol County correction officers
    examining his heavily tattooed torso for telltale
    gang signs that he has never been a member of
    any street gang

    Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson:

    “He talked to our gang investigators and said he
    didn’t have any involvement,” Hodgson said
    yesterday, adding that his gang unit is still
    investigating the matter.
    “We always take extra precautions. We don’t
    have any definite issues at this point, but we’re
    still being very cautious,” Hodgson said.
    “The review of his tattoos is a normal process,
    and we haven’t reached any definitive
    conclusions,” Hodgson added.

    Per Yahoo Sports Shutdown Corner:

    Hernandez also has "blood" tattooed on his right
    hand, but that word appears to be part of the
    larger phrase "blood sweat tears".

    Lol, turns out the guy Hernandez called over to help him out was Tebow

    Orlando Sentinel:

    The report stated the following:
    When the officer could not find Hernandez
    immediately following the incident, he interviewed
    Tebow and Shaun Young.
    “Tebow stated that he witnessed the dispute,”
    the officer wrote. “… Tebow stated that he went
    over to try to help resolve the conflict.”
    ...
    Two hours later, another officer found Hernandez
    and spoke with him about the incident.

    Entrapment



    Aaron Hernandez, has he re-written the book on how to NOT commit murder? Hanging out with the guy before he's dead, driving all around town with him. 4 guys leave in a car, 3 return, dead body found a mile from his house, destroying cell phone and home security system but not really destroying it. We've all thought about how you'd commit the perfect murder and it doesn't involve leaving the body a mile from your upscale house.......my only conclusion is he's brain dead. I wonder if the police checked the kitchen table for his written confession.
