Everything about Aaron Hernandez makes me sick. To throw your glamorous life away to be a part of the thug life he was given a free pass to escape from, is more than insane. Now, he somehow has the audacity to ask the New England Patriots, who gave him the world and trusted him, for more money after what he did? I don’t care what he believes was in his contract; there comes a point when you can no longer ask for favors. According to Hernandez’s lawyer, he’s asking to be paid a $3.25 million signing bonus and another $82,000 he believes is still owed to him from his time in the NFL. Apparently, those murders are finally catching up to him in the form of courtroom costs. I’m just happy the Patriots put their foot down and told Hernandez to let it go. “The Patriots believe under the terms of that contract that they owe not another penny to Mr. Hernandez,” Andrew Phelan, the team’s attorney, said during a hearing at the Suffolk Superior Court. The sooner Hernandez’s sentence is handed out and this story goes away, the better. I’d like to erase him from my memory as soon as possible. Like this?
