Opposite of props to the Patriots, good move from a football and locker room point of view but I fail to see how this is a classy move.
Really? You'd allow a guy linked to a murder investigation to remain associated with you?

You can't forget that he's innocent until proven guilty.


Some times its not that simple. Right or wrong is more important than guilt or innocence. Hernandez weather guilty or not has done things that are wrong (if reports are true).

You don't think the police have evidence that isn't public knowledge? They don't put their case together until trial, but believe they know more than what we do.


The police already tweeted that they won't present some of the information they have yet, i posted it in the arrest thread.

I completely understand why the Pats released Hernandez and I applaud the organization for having the guts to do so. However, what if Hernandez is found not guilty and had nothing to do with Lloyd's murder? Then what? You jumped the gun by releasing a guy before legal proceedings could be dealt with.

Like I said, I get why he was released; just could turn out that Hernandez is not involved at all.

Like i said, the Patriots couldn't let themselves appear supportive of Hernandez during a murder trial... doesn't matter how it ends.

If he is cleared of all charges which is HIGHLY doubtful, he might come back i assume.

The Pats (BB at least) aren't the type to do something to "make a point" - they probably know he's guilty of something already.

The only thing I can think of is they know more. He's clearly involved.

AH is an idiot. Huge contract, just had a baby girl. He threw so much away.

Think that they know more than we do. I applaud their organization for distancing themselves from this.

I also think that if they hadn't released him it wouldn't necessarily show support for Hernandez during a murder trial. They could wait until more facts become public or the trial is over.

Lot of facts still not out there, at least to the public, but a preemptive move like this makes me think there is more to the story and that the Pats know something.

I applaud the Patriots for making this move now if thats the case. If it turns out he is not guilty then I'm not so sure.

Either way, to me it seems that he is guilty of something but really I don't know all of the facts so making a judgement either way is hard.

Yes, if he is somehow exonerated of everything the Patriots would look silly but what do you think the probability of that happening is? I don't think the organization would make him walk the plank unless they had a better grasp of the situation than what has been made public.

You'd think this image might put things in perspective.

Still couldn't get out from the 'Thug Life'
