    The Hernandez thing is weird. He spent his entire life trying to act hard and convince people how gangster he was despite growing up in a nice middle class community...then he does the cowardly thing and ends his own life.

    3 suicide notes found in his room, in his handwriting. Case closed, IMO.

    I don't know how everyone else feels about the situation, but I was a little uncomfortable with ESPN's coverage of Hernandez's death. I woke up to "breaking news" on like 3 of the 4 ESPN channels, sports center and Mike & Mike were dealing with it, and it was all a bit too much of a tribute for my taste. Showing Hernandez's life story practically, footage of his high school playing days, talking about the Patriots visit to the White House that day, it felt a little too much like a tribute to me. I don't know why it got that much coverage in the first place, it feels like these stations eat this stuff up and almost enjoy having the story to run, especially since it's NFL related! I'll never understand how ESPN can run at least an hour long NFL show daily (if not 2) 365 days a year, but whatever. Point is I found it distasteful, guy was a murderer, and he killed himself in prison, he didn't warrant all that coverage and life review any more than any other prisoner sitting in that place for murder. But hey, he played football! And for the Patriots!

    I agree Weezy. I don't know why he got so much attention. A female co-worker who knows very little about sports called me and asked what I thought. Strange to me. I've talked to 3 females who find him gorgeous (???) So that might have something to do with it.

    We're long past the time the media needs to stop making stupid people (more) famous.

    That's really gross, dude is a cold blooded murderer. He didn't even show emotion in court during his trials from what I saw, probably a psycho. But he's got a great physique and could run fast and catch a ball, so let's cover his story like he's special.
