    Didn’t want to a non-related topic on someone’s article, out of basic respect… but did anybody catch that Hernandez is being investigated for ANOTHER double-murder? Wowzers. I might be late to the party here, but I was in meetings all morning. Link below.

      Whether or not he did it or not, he had a real rough attitude from the start. They were reporting on something a Patriot had recounted as to a Hernandez incident that occurred during his rookie year. Apparently, Hernandez went on a a cuss word filled tirade when Wes Welker chided him in the locker room. Guys in the locker room said he went over the line and did not fit in to the locker room culture. See? This is the great youth movement. Some of these guys are so amped up–you cannot tell them anything, kid with them, do the rookie hazing, etc. They will not listen. Example: I love Richard Sherman… great talent, but he admits he is amped up and he says everyone does it. Will not listen and cannot be told. There are a bunch of problems in the making with these young guys. They have no respect for anyone.

      You start to wonder that if you trash talk some of these guys during the game, and they get the goofy notion you are showing them “disrespect”–whether they might even think of seriously retaliating.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        I agree… they need to tone it down A LOT.
        As for Sherman… with all the crap that has gone on with the Seahawks recently… all of the popped drug tests, and getting a “dirty” rep around the league.. You would think he would keep his trap shut for just ONE SECOND! Instead, he is all over NFL Total Access talking trash.. on the field talking trash.. on his twitter talking trash. Not just regular trash talking, but “over-the-top” trash talking. I know it’s a part of football, but when your team is developing a crappy reputation, and it’s only been two minutes since your division came out of the basement of the NFL.. you should be a little bit more humble.. especially when you are still the 2nd place team in that division. It reminds me of when the Lions got all cocky for a second, but then all of their players started doing stupid crap, and getting arrested. Now, they are picking in the top 5 of the draft again. Same thing will happen to Seattle, watch.
        Also, Sherman better watch his back… One of these psychos might catch you in a dark alley one day.. or at a stop light.. like the guys I mentioned above.

        • Stefanie Smith

          Yeah. Takeo did some trash talking on the field when they were playing,. Nothing wrong with that, but these nuts think you are disrespecting them and are liable to get a hankering to blow your brains out one day.

      So… Is this double murder case the same case where someone tried to sue him for shooting someone in the face ?

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        No… this is ANOTHER two guys. They were stopped by another car at a stop-light, and the other car unloaded their clips on them, apparently Three other guys were in the car, but survived, according to the article. The guy who got shot in the face is blind in one eye now, and is still pressing charges.. the last I heard anyway. The charges were dropped for a minute, but I think it was a clerical mistake on the paperwork, and the case was re-opened. It may have taken a back seat in the media, now that all of this is happening.. looks like he was up to multiple acts of dooshbaggery.

          That’s crazy , what kills me is he had a chance to get out the hood but stayed playing in the streets . Pretty sad

            Well said. You can pay for school, but you can’t buy class.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Pete: : Deion Sanders about said it all when he was asked by reporters about this whole Hernandez thing. He said the NFL “has to cut the umbilical cord” with these guys and start attaching ourselves to players who are taking care of their families, doing things in the community, etc. He said these guys like Hernandez are going to destroy the NFL and it’s a good organization, but they have to get rid of these folks.

      • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

        Yep.. saw that same interview. He is absolutely right.

        • Stefanie Smith

          I hope I got his statements accurately, as I had to paraphrase a little, but I believe that was the gist of it.
