this photo by Mary Schwalm, Eagle-Tribune of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was removed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has removed the photo above of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame has removed a photo of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez celebrating a touchdown from a display after several visitors complained about its presence.
The 2010 photo of Hernandez scoring a TD was an award-winning image from the annual HOF photo contest. Hall officials removed it from a display earlier this week.
“In the spirit of good taste we thought we’d take it down,” said Joe Horrigan, the hall’s vice president of communication and exhibits.
While I understand why they removed the photo, it’s a little disheartening that the NFL has done so much to erase Hernandez from their league before he’s been convicted of any crimes.

The Pouncey Brothers are University of Florida alums, so that is the connection between them and Aaron Hernandez. Technically, it is innocent until proven guilty and every defendant has a presumption of innocence, so there shouldn’t be anything wrong with wearing these hats.

This could be one of the dumbest things ever done by high profile athletes. Really, this makes Ochocinco taping his lawyer on the rear after a verdict seem smart. Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder and all signs point towards him being guilty. But that did not stop the Pouncey twins from wearing “Free Hernandez” hats at a party.
There are rumors that the Pouncey brothers...
