It's not surprising but very interesting how fast the Patriots are running away from Hernandez, who is facing 1st degree murder charges, though he has not been convicted of anything at this time.

It’s no secret that the NFL has recently been battling with concussion and head injury issues — with current and former players alike — as a result of hits on the football field. There’s no shortage of players who have suffered from them, and according to the folks behind the famous Taiwanese animation videos, Aaron Hernandez may be the latest entry to the list.
In coverage of live, breaking and extraordinary news stories, mistakes are made, hosts and reporters are less smooth than usual and information isn't always dispensed in a clear, efficient or well-prioritized manner. That's the nature of the media business, and I believe that while we've come to make light of some of the more ridiculous moments that have stemmed from...
