It's really quite ridiculous at the silence from which the media handles this Hernandez situation. Why is there no outrage towards the "Patriot Way"? They do nothing but collect turds and everyone praises them for it because they like them. They've been successful so everyone turns a blind eye towards the truth. That truth is they are merely one step above the Bungles in collecting shady character players. Look at Alfonzo Dennard, a player who had 1st round talent that every team avoided like the plague. Th Pats took him. They did the same with Hernandez. Same with Talib. Same with Haynesworth. Randy Moss was drawing no interest from any teams until the Pats came aliong. There were plenty of teams that took Mallett off their boards. And the list can go on.
Teams can choose to do this but typically suffer the consequences such as the Bungles as they get hammered by the media. You know and I know if this were the Jets, the media would be full-throat at how "bad" the Jets are run with countless circus overtones. This isn't even resembling honest, fair and impartial journalism which is an oath all journalists vow to uphold. Where are you so-called professional journalists? Impartial and seekers of truth? I don't see any of you. The slience is deafening. I could make an argument that the Pats are enabling an environment for bad behavior to exist by employing such low-character turds. It wouldn't be off the mark as what we're witnessing with Hernandez as he was funded mightily to pursue his gang exploits.
The bottom line is that the Pats get a free pass from the media and fans alike simply because they have won in the past. Sorry but that's not the question here. If you seek the truth, you're not supposed to be veered off course by the periphery. Continue hiding your heads in the sand, media and continue to be the cowardly reporters of sensationalism blind towards any semblance of truth.
Patriot Way, my ***! You guys are all suckers for buying into that.
