Part of Rob Gronkowski‘s appeal is that he appears to be a kid who generally enjoys life without breaking any laws or putting anyone at risk. But with the latest video of Gronk body-slamming a friend while dancing shirtless at a club in Las Vegas, it begs the question of whether the Pro Bowl tight end is having too much fun for his own good. As most Patriots fans know, Gronkowski re-broke his forearm early in the team’s AFC Championship loss to the Ravens on Jan. 20, and many feel a little uneasy about one of their best players performing wrestling moves with a cast on his left arm. The 23-year-old also spent most of Super Bowl week frequenting the bars and clubs of New Orleans, returning him to the TMZ fame that famously peaked during last year’s so-called “Summer of Gronk.” At just 23, some may argue that Gronkowski so openly enjoying himself is a breath of fresh air in a sports world that has become too serious. However, others contest that, as a highly paid and highly valuable part of New England’s success, he must tone down the partying and keep his focus more on the game. So what do you think? Is Gronk being Gronk still harmless fun, or is it time for last call? Share your opinion in the poll below. Take Our Poll
