In response to Pats-bilbo's comment:
I am let down as a Pats Fan and a Human being also. A person with all the gifts he was given has no reason to be involved with hurting another person and it looks like it has happened twice in the last 6 months.
Aaron is done as a Patriot, convicted or not. I hope they trade him or cut him even if he is exonerated. He should not of shot his friend in the face and after doing so should have learned better than doing or being involved in something like this again.
He is talented but has injury issues, has dropped some critical balls and now is an off field disaster and distracts from the teams goal. I think he is gone ASAP.

I hear ya, but they can't trade him if everyone knows the Pats will cut him. To me, this is like watching the Naked Gun one night in early June of 1994 and then turning on the tv the that Friday and seeing OJ Simpson's Bronco slowly going to down the interstate in LA.
It;'s just so odd. Everyone knew OJ as the guy who was a likeable, HOF NFL great and a sideline guy who wore expensive leather gloves (the irony) on NBC's NFL coverage who clearly murdered his estranged wife and her lover.
It's hard to wrap you're head around. But, nothing surprises me anymore. It just doesn't. Some gal threw some other gal off a cliff on video today in Peru. Not surprised. People do stuff that we never learn about, then we learn about it, it's shocking because you, yourself, would never do it in a million years.
I started that thread enetitled "May I Ask A Question?" to seriously see if anyone had any theories as to why people make these odd decisions.
What could this Lloyd kid have possibly done to Hernandez or anyone else for Hernandez to rent a van, concoct some half baked murder plan, to the point he might throw his career and life away so easily?
What is it? What is the motive? Did he abuse Hernandez's GF's sister and this is the thug/gang version of exacting punishment on him? What is it?
And if you wanted him harmed why are you so dumb in doing it? It's just mindboggling.
Good post. I seriously don't understand it either. What bothers me the most is that I make decent money, but I still dish out a lot of cash every year to make a trip out to Boston and I go big and purchase expensive tickets for my gf and I. We go all out and spend a lot of money at Gilette. I believe I do my small part to support this team. I know a lot of you spend even more.
It really grinds on me that these players can't at least live their short career without getting arrested and do jail time. They have jobs that all of us "average joes" can only dream about, and we support these guys by buying their jerseys, buying game tickets etc. so there is definitely a feeling of being let down by Hern at this point.
I bought his jersey last year and he was one of my favorite players on this Patriots offense, so its definitely a huge let down. Most of all, I really feel for his daughter.
