    In response to The RomoSexual snark: I am not a lawyer but ipso max facto I half watched many trials and lawyers on TV. Thanks for the lawyer's critique, and no, I do not wish to sue anyone yet. I will keep your name in mind, though.
    And I think romo has something actionable on yew. you combine his name with "sexual." I say to Romo, sue this man because he is implying something . . . but he is rich and may not need to sue anyone.

    If Hernandez did the crime he will not be playing for anyone for the reminder of his life. Is this national get high day or what?

    I think you mean if he's found guilty. If he did it and gets acquitted, he'll find a team.

    I object, the comment is irrelevant, hearsay and inadmissable at Moose Lodge meetings and in the states of Mississippi and Arkansas. "No doubt there was no intent on the part of Brent" how do you know? "but it was an accident." How do you know? "Odin Lloyd, who was found shot execution-style." How do you know?
    Man, you are presumptuous and leading. I demand you be disbarred and stuff, barrista. I mean, barrister.

    Who are you kidding comparing the two? I am sure many folk on this site have driven while drinking at one time or another. But I would bet my life the majority on this site have not pulled a trigger and fired several bullets into a friends chest and back!!!!!

    I doubt very much we are holding on to Brent to recoup money. Cut, he costs us about 12k in cap space.

    As I said I don't know if he is or is not guilty as of this time all I know is he has been arrested and charged with 1st dregee murder. I'm also unsure teams will be looking to him if he can beat the rap. Like many cases this is not going to happen over night it will take a while for this to go to trial in the mean time a whole new crop of TE will be coming out making their own mark in the NFL

    So Brent was trying to take his life and the life of Brown? However given the skid marks he was trying to get the car under control, does not take a rocket scientist to figure out this was an accident. As far as how do I know Lloyd was shot execution style that is in the police report and that then is premeditated murder. You don't have to be a lawyer to know this. Brent action by no means is excusable but far from premeditated murder. This clearly is National get high day today. The post around here are beyond their normal weirdness today

    Plus the fact that he not only has this charge, he has another that has also been placed against him for a former crime. He will have to beat both of those charges and by that time, as you have said above, there will be other TEs coming into the league. Never mind the fact that he will be getting older and his body will be away from Football. He's not going to be able to just hire a personal trainer to stay in shape, to say nothing of the Commish and what he may decide to do.

    His career, IMO, is effectively over.

    accidental manslaughter vs. 1st degree per-meditated murder?

    I'm convinced there are people on this site who look for reasons to criticize the Dallas Cowboys. Makes me wonder if they really are fans or just trolls.

    I hate to break to you, but when people are drunk, they rarely make a conscious decision as alcohol inhibits your ability to do so

    The thing that I guess I don't understand very well is how Hernandez got so screwed up? I mean, he's from Bristol Ct.. I am not all that familiar with Bristol but I don't recall it being a real crime wave hot spot. I know he went to Florida and I'm certain that there are elements there that can lead you in the wrong direction but this seems like it's a little deeper then that. He seems to have a destructive sort of behavior about him and I am just wondering where that developed? It's kinda weird to me but whatever.

    Someone probably separated a shoulder in the "reach attempt" to connect the Brent case to what is going on in New England.

    Accountability and intent are separate entities.

    Brent should be held accountable for drinking alcohol and driving in an incident that killed his friend. However, his intent was never to kill his friend.

    Hernandez should be held accountable if he is indeed guilty of murdering somebody. Hernandez's intent was allegedly to purposely kill another person.

    I could see keeping Brent on the team given the situation. Now I think that with him allegedly failing a drug test, he doesn't deserve any more chances from the organization.

    I believe the Patriots have people who are retired FBI or cops (every team has them) and I believe they received good word that Hernandez was going to be arrested for murder and that he looks awfully guilty, so they decided to cut him before he was officially arrested. Had he not been arrested or the Patriots thought he may not have done it, I believe they would not have released him.
