Shaughnessy & Toucher on Gronk's off field antics
Cities for a touch of from knife of the sport's have and -- Scioscia from the Boston Globe. Guys what are you doing -- right now Fred. Do you think that you admire what he did that if I go back and then -- do with my brochure -- actually absolutely. I mean I could never -- I could never go shirt was back in time I can think of a lot of positives of being a professional athlete and very good shape it's very wealthy. Go with the burrows and -- to crappy music with my Brothers tackle and that isn't one of them. He's always bothered me because I can't believe that anyone would go that's great behavior allegiances. Even before this even for example after they lost a good time. It's a sense of that it's bad for the Patriots are a sense that it it it diminishes him as a football player. It just diminishes the -- of quality human being as a doling out. When you who you would wanna leave at 9 o'clock but nonetheless hey I do think I hate to say because they seem. What he's pesky worry -- but I do think if your. Have a broken arm and -- it twice this season you're you know frolic around with your Brothers you know throwing weight on it that's right at the. You know did I think I Anderson were friends coming from French try to be the adult in the room or is the adult in the room but I think the reason we find grunt so refreshing is because everybody's so guarded. You know and he's not. Maybe I should be guarded instead of that what may -- what kind of -- A good and you -- take just think if -- -- now let's just no way I would -- you and I will look that would. Yeah I thought I -- goes right now we don't -- and different things like that metropolitan through the way we're still we're not gonna do that. But we we like him because he's not guarded but he took it too far because that are belongs in the New England Patriots. Any broke it twice and that's not good and talk to your pals so like that. Yeah like so. Loves everything about crop including this part of you know this is on the ground that you want -- I don't see any hope for reading this in. I don't know who could get to. From teammates. Maybe Bill Belichick but. You know Bob Kraft -- -- eighty's he -- he wants to be -- in his next life and well and it it's you know this is gonna be great. Until it's not pretty well right now that could this could be the tip of that iceberg and in my opinion because. Whether players one wouldn't it -- or not their products. Their merchandise if you are owned by the New England Patriots which they all are. And he's being paid millions and millions of dollars and if he can't play because he falls on that arm because he's been -- stage in Vegas that's not good thread in the. Owners not gonna like it no I mean you have a responsibility for the team he's on a contract like that and it's not like. He hears what how this is to be looked upon nationally it's going to be oh what's the stodgy Boston media again and it solid much memory tonight. My friend I. It sounded like a lot -- interpreted different ways but I yeah. So -- -- to invent things just political and its own device -- put up you know you know it's going to be -- like say that you were being stodgy and things of that nature boy. You know I if it was any player in the NFL this is the gronkowski thing you lose any player in the NFL and they had a broken arm they were important to a team there in that kind of money. We be calling them out to it would be on every website and it would be. They did this is it this is past the point that it's not about him enjoying himself is embarrassing as it is is. Horrible it is to watch insist that you could be doing anything you want between the tackle your friend. I think it came in my mind it was too long -- when ski. Sure right and that was it right I mean he had a great season sixty -- would skeen so athletes he he's to be aware of his body -- bet this reminds me. Of -- -- Maris use his talent is so much so great he is beloved no matter what he does he can actually do anything and the fans love the guy. Again anything short of quitting which when people finally turned on -- -- -- -- out there right now it will become a problem. When the fans if he can't play because of that arm river Flacco got in the skateboard like people called the Marcus and I saw. In his driveway stand and his people for what it's like -- and.
