We like to have fun here.
A DP and sports talk.
We like to come in here, talk about sports, talk about the Patriots.
Sometimes we talk trash.
Sometimes we have fun.
Sometimes we're mad, sometimes with side.
Sometimes we're disappointed.
But at the end of the day, sports, whether it's football, baseball, basketball, hockey, whatever you watch, whatever you do, whatever team you cheer for, whatever player you love.
Whatever player you loath, remember that it's all for entertainment purposes.
At the end of the day, sports in real life are not the same thing today.
Unfortunately, our entertainment world collided with real life and we lost Kobe Bryant.
I didn't know quite how I wanted to even start addressing this today.
I didn't know how I wanted to talk about it.
Sometimes people come out and they make tributes to fall in people and celebrities and athletes, and they make it about themselves.
And I didn't want to make it about myself.
But how else can I talk about Kobe Bryant without talking about myself? Let me pre lewd everything by telling you I despise the Los Angeles Lakers.
And yet my respect level for Kobe Bryant ran so deep and still run so deep.
I've had numerous arguments with my friends about Kobe Bryant.
We've talked about Michael Jordan.
We've talked about Larry Bird.
We've talked about Bill Russell.
We talked about everybody down and any time we get it, we and I've never had.
Kobe Bryant is the best player ever.
But any time we get into the conversation of 10 seconds left in the game one shot, you can pick anybody who's taking your shot.
For me, it's always been Kobe Bryant and Kobe Bryant.
I associate a lot with guys like Tom Brady.
When people in my generation that sort of mid 30 mark, we grew up with Kobe Bryant.
We grew up with Mamba.
We grew up with him and shack.
We grew up with the five championships.
I don't think there's a single person my age that at some point in time in their life didn't crumple up a piece of paper, throw into a garbage can and yell co boom.
I gotta say I was an absolute shock today.
My friends and I were all texting each other and none of us really knew what to say, and I said, I gotta put something out on Twitter and Instagram and YouTube and stuff, and I didn't know.
I didn't know what to say.
What do you say about it? And then you hear that his daughter was in the crash as well and another teammate and another parent.
And yet today the sports world lost somebody big.
But so did a family, a mother, daughters.
And it's You saw the outcry support for Kobe today and his family, and it was well deserved, and I didn't know what to do.
I knew I had to talk about co pee on the show tonight.
I knew it was something that I had to do.
But it's also something that I didn't want to do, obviously, because of well, because I didn't want to talk about it.
Kobe Bryant is a legend in the n b A.
It was a hero for a lot of young basketball players, especially when I was growing up, and I think that when you talk about a winner's mentality, he's right up there with Brady and Jordan guys, I just wanna win.
And he wanted to win a life he wanted to be known for things outside of basketball.
Yet his Academy Award.
He wanted to be a producer.
It was a big advocate for literacy, especially amongst Children.
And it's important that his legacy lives on Kobe Bryant.
You will be mess, rest in peace and we're going to go on with the show because Colby Bryant, I think, without knowing him but just knowing him as a competitor would not want anybody life to change because of this.
All I can say is Kobe, you will be missed and thank you for all the memories.
Do your past Nation was going down.
It's your boy, Ray.
And welcome to my little show here on DP in sports talk live on SportsCastr and thank everybody who's watching on YouTube.
Ah, I got a pretty good show lined up for you tonight.
I think we're gonna talk about Tom Brady and how he's gonna be the biggest story of Super Bowl week.
We're gonna talk about the details finally starting to come out and the Jawan Williams arrest.
As we've talked about for the last two weeks, everybody and their grandmother has an opinion on Tom Brady and what's gonna happen with his contract situation and today Maybe it's yesterday.
I guess by now his ex teammate, wide receiver Super Bowl champion Danny Amendola, weighed in on what he thinks gonna happen.
And then we're gonna talk a little bit about the Aaron Hernandez do***entary, which I think some of you know, I wasn't a big fan of.
I read an article today.
Neither was Devin McCourty and him.
And I see a lot of the same thing.
So I'm hoping we can have a good show.
I'm hoping I can entertain you today.
I'm hoping maybe I could teach you something.
We could just come out here.
I don't have a good time.
Remember, sports is bigger than life.
And on a day like today, it's tough to go through.
But I know that we need to plug on here and we need to keep moving on with our life.
And a part of my life is doing this show every single day.
Everybody who came in here and give me this opportunity and let's get this going.
Because here on D p.
M, we love Kobe.
We love Kobe season and everything that went with it, huh? all right, so let's talk a little bit about the New England Patriots for a second here.
Let's talk about them.
Is a franchise them as a team? All I heard throughout this season, all I heard is heading into the postseason.
Was that the last thing anybody wanted to see? What, the Super Bowl or the Patriots back in the Super Bowl? Remember Stephen A.
Smith saying, We don't want the Patriots in the A F C Championship game? No, no, we want Patrick Mahomes, and we want, uh, you know, Lamar Jackson in the A C Championship game.
People didn't want the Patriots around, and yet the Patriots haven't played since wild card weekend.
They haven't played since Saturday of wild card weekend.
And yet all I keep hearing about everywhere is about the New England Patriots, and what's gonna happen next week is Kansas City in San Francisco.
I think it starts tomorrow.
They could be out there tonight, but tomorrow's the Big Ben's media day, and the teams are gonna show up.
But every is gonna clap for them, and all the media reporters are gonna show up in the Addy Addy Atta and what happens is they're gonna have Radio Alley for the week, and they have all these different radio shows and TV shows and everybody with a pulse and was a media credential is going to be at the show and be there talking to former players and experts and this knot and I guaran **** tee you that almost everybody is going to be asking somebody in every interview.
What do you think is gonna happen with Tom Brady and why are they going to keep asking that question? Because it's the ***iest story in sports right now.
People want to know what Tom Brady's going to do.
People want to know what's gonna happen to the New England Patriots, because deep down in the ****les of everybody's heart, whether you love them or whether you hate them, the New England Patriots are the world's obsession.
The Patriots have been so good for so long that people just obsess over the Patriots.
I mean, we've been talking.
We've been in an off season now since January.
We're so not used to an off season being this long.
If you're a Patriot fan, especially the last you know, eight years, I know the pages.
I'm gonna eight straight Super Bowls, where there were eight straight A's to championship games before this year.
And and yet nobody but Patriots fans should be caring about what's going on with New England.
And yet people from everywhere are putting in their two cents on the New England Patriots, even if it's just stupid enough.
And I'm just saying that you know the dynasty's dad or whatever nonsense they're coming up with today.
But I was reading an article today, and W E I by Ryan Hannibal was called Sunday. Seven.
Tom Brady will be the biggest story of Super Bowl week, and it goes like this.
Even though the Patriots are not playing in the Super Bowl, they will still be one of the biggest story lines of the week, most notably Tom Brady.
Will the 42 year old leave New England as a free agent, or will he ultimately stay with the organization he spent the last 20 years with, As we all know, from the Patriots, playing in the game so much of late? The majority of the talk during the week with the entire football world gathered in one place is never about the game itself.
It will not be a week of breaking down Patrick my homes in the Kansas City Chiefs offense against the 40 Niners defense.
Rather will be discussing the biggest story lines in the NFL, and right now, the biggest storyline in the NFL is Tom Brady's future.
All the interviews on radio role throughout the week will feature some questions relating to the greatest quarterback to ever play the game and what he will do in the upcoming weeks.
Also, any report or spy speculation by an informed media member that gets surfaced on the situation will get magnified because of the lack of real news on the subject.
Just look what happened with Adam Schefter is comments on Get up and Jason lacking for his report this week? Well, both really said nothing.
They dominated the new cycles on their given days.
Expect that to happen for a great deal over the course of the next seven days, while Brady and the Patriots will not be in Miami, it will be hard to walk around the Media center radio row and not hear them being discussed.
And if Brady, where to leave New England, the team's mentioned most of the charges and the Raiders, and there's no question those to make some sense.
But remember when Peyton Manning left Indianapolis? The Broncos weren't mentioned at all and sort of out of nowhere.
He signed there.
So don't be surprised come March to see some surprise teams who enter the conversation and be serious contenders who could potentially be one of those teams keep an eye in Indianapolis.
All right, Ryan.
So all right, I want to do that.
You talked about all we call.
We're gonna hear about a speculation and then suddenly turns around, and he starts talking about speculation.
I'm sorry if the screen that screwed up for people my one of my lights just turned off.
I don't know what the hell's going on right now, Um, but let's talk about this a little bit.
It's a It's 1000% sure that Tom Brady's story, As I just said, It's the ***iest story in sports right now.
Everybody wants to know what the hell Tom Brain is gonna do.
As much as New England Patriot fans are sitting here and patiently going, My God just signed the guy already, So we can move on with our lives.
The rest of the world actually kind of feels the same way because deep down they care.
They know they don't want Tom Brady back.
If Tom Brady comes back and Bill Bell check is able to get a good tight end and have a good draft, the Patriots are right back in contention next season.
They don't want to deal with the New England Patriots.
There's something right now going okay.
The only real team that's a threat to us is the Baltimore Ravens, and I've heard Chiefs fans say that.
I mean, I think that's an ignorant way to look at it, because Tennessee is gonna be a pretty decent team.
You know, the Patriots, they're Baltimore's there.
Oakland's on the rise or a guest.
Las Vegas, they will be.
Next year is on the rise.
I mean, the Kansas City Chiefs, in my opinion, I mean, that's better not lose this game on Sunday because I could really see this being a Dan Marino situation for Patrick Holmes and for some reason, kids, I'm watching all the Kansas City fans and they believe like, oh, we're gonna be here every single year.
No, Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.
Bill Belichick is the greatest coach to ever coach the game, and they didn't go to the Super Bowl every single season.
That just wasn't a part of the repertoire.
That's this is the National Football League.
That doesn't happen.
I won a Super Bowl.
Now the lights back on.
Joe Flacco won a Super Bowl.
You know, Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl, Eli Manning 12 of them.
So I know that you want to sit on this little perch and pedestal and Seo, while the Chiefs are going to the Chiefs are gonna be good for 20 years, just like Tom Brady and the Patriots were.
So here's the big difference, man.
See, Mahomes has a gold digging girlfriend, right? Tom Brady is married to a billionaire.
So brain, what Brady would always do is he would take last money and help build the weapons around them, whether it be offensively or defensively defensively.
Trust me, Patrick, my home at some point in time because he's arrogant people.
He's talked about all humble Patrick Holmes.
Patrick Holmes ain't ain't humble.
It's that Patty Mahomes.
What he's gonna do is he's gonna demand big money one day and then not be able to afford Tyree Kill and Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelsey.
And like Patrick Moore, Holmes is a is a great quarterback.
Don't get me wrong, and I've never been one to say he's not a great quarterback.
He's probably the best in the league right now.
From appears talent standpoint.
But how good is he gonna look? Give him Mohammed Sunu, Nikkila, Harry and Phillip Dorsett.
And let's see how good Patrick Mahomes looks.
Because what's gonna happen Patrick with their Chiefs Kingdom when Patrick Holmes is that supposed to pay big money or the cheese at the pay? Patrick Holmes Big money.
That's what his offensive weaponry is gonna look like.
You're not gonna be ableto have this star studded fact, or you have a really great offense and no defense and Patriot fans very well know what that looks like.
That leads to zero Super Bowls.
I mean, you think about things a Brady accomplished in his career, where the defense is absolutely let him down.
So good luck, man.
Sunday I finally picked me and I said, Look, I put out a thing last week saying there was two evils and I couldn't figure out who I wanted to win.
I didn't want the San Francisco 40 Niners toe win and tie the Patriots for six Super Bowls.
I didn't want, you know, Jimmy Garoppolo.
Did we win a ring in a San Francisco jersey? I didn't want to cheat, to win and give Chiefs Kingdom the opportunity and the glory of winning the Super Bowl because, as I said, they think the chief's accomplishments or their own.
Unlike I can't talk for all the fascination, I can talk for me.
I never say we while referring to the Patriots, the football team I say we want. I'm referring to the fans.
The Cheese Kingdom fans believe that they have something to do with the chief's winning.
But I'm finally making my decision.
I'm throwing my my weight around.
I'm throwing my hat in the ring and I'm throwing it in the direction of the San Francisco 40 Niners because at the end of the day, the Patriots can win their seventh and take that and and take that back.
You can't take back the insufferable miss that we're gonna have to deal with with the Kansas City fans.
If they were to walk away and be champions, I would love nothing more as a Patriots fan to see Patrick Mahomes be nothing more than a Dan Marino type quarterback, and it's just the way it is.
And the light went out again.
I don't know what is going on with this light.
It's just gonna go in and out as we go.
Guys, I apologize.
I'll try to figure this out after.
So what? We're going to hear a lot.
There's gonna be a lot of Tom Brady stories this week.
That's all I'm getting that This would be a lot of Tom Brady stories this week, and I'm the guy who's supposed to be talking about the Patriots, and I'll probably we talk about the Super Bowl more than the media is talking about the Patriots, but or about Super Bowl.
But believe me, there's gonna be a lot of Patriots stories.
It could be a lot of speculation.
They're gonna be talking to fourth string cornerbacks and 25 years ago, who ran into Tom Brady.
You know, a Dunkin Donuts to find out their opinion.
Everybody is going to have an opinion on what happens with Tom Brady after this season.
He's gonna be the biggest story of the Super Bowl.
It's going to drive the chief's kingdom crazy because they're gonna say, Why isn't anybody being attention? Eyes? Nobody cares about the Kansas City Chiefs.
That's the thing, right? As historical is, Kansas City.
Kansas City has been around a long time.
Nobody cares about you.
There's still a big following of the 40 Niners.
So when you have accomplished nothing in your franchise, nobody cares about you and you with numbers on the weekend showed, and the championship weekend showed how much Nobody cares.
Patriots aren't in the championship game ratings fall to the floor yet.
Nobody wanted the Patriots in the Super Bowl, Right, Right, Anyways, I want to move on to some real story.
There's, ah, a little bit of an update on John Williams.
As of last week, all we knew is he got arrested and he had drugs in the car.
There's actually a little bit of a story behind.
It goes like this.
Patriots quarterback Juan Williams with the story.
This comes from boston dot com Matthew Doherty Patriots cornerback Don Juan Williams was arrested in Tennessee on January 17th.
Now, Deal's details emerged about the case in his arrest, amount of marijuana, hand rolled marijuana, cigarettes and an illegal paraphernalia inside the car.
Williams was reportedly booked into the ***berland County Jail and released the following day on 37 1005 $100 bond.
He was cited for speeding and also charged with possession, possession of controlled substance, possession of drugs without a prescription in the possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Nashville native is due in court February 20 first.
A second round pick of the Patron, 29 the rookie from Vanderbilt played in nine games for New England this season.
He made five tackles in one pass deflection.
So here's the good news.
Are they serious? Apse of freakin lutely? They're serious, but But what you got nailed with is not bad.
He got Nell coding, and we'd, um, you'll probably get in more trouble for the weed.
Then he will the Cody And it wasn't like it was a morphine or anything.
Ah, lot of drug addicts do not use Cody.
And I can tell you that because I'm a drug counselor.
Um, uh, coding is not normally the drug of choice for drug users are frequent drug users.
So I'm not exactly sure exactly what John was up to, but, um, we've still yet to hear from the NFL.
What's gonna happen, I think.
And I was talking about this the other day, and in case you missed it, I'll talk about it again.
I believe because you know what? This this thing happened with Patrick Chung.
This thing happened with Iran Harmon when he got nailed, there was never any suspensions, anything like that, I believe, because it's a substance related incident that, um it goes under the substance abuse policy, Which means on a first time offense is, um, the first time offense is nothing more than I think they got to go take a look like a weekend treatment, classroom, weekend self care class, and then they get more frequent drug tests in that kind of thing.
So I don't think it is. This is just me guessing.
I obviously have no real idea, but, um, I don't think that he's going to get any sort of, you know, major punishment for this.
I think that he'll kind of get the slap on the wrist and they'll say, Hey, you got to go take this class and here he should be playing football.
Ah, maybe the patriots find them.
The pages don't usually make internal punishment public unless you're, I don't know, suspending Michael Bennett for a week.
Ah, and, um, didn't want to release him and wanted to trade him and get something for him.
Because I will be.
Guys know that is the reason that ah, that's the reason that Michael Bennett got suspended because the Patriots didn't want to just release some cash is March.
Could've got suspended, but he got released, right, because they knew that nobody in the league would want cash is March.
I mean, who really wants cash Marsh? Ah, but so they wanted to move out.
So they suspended him so that it could still trade him.
So it's That's where we're at now.
So I don't know what's gonna again.
It's my guests with Juan Williams that he's not gonna be punished, and I I don't believe he's gonna be punished.
I believe that he's going to get off.
I believe that he is.
Ah, I believe he's gonna have to go take that class and that's about it.
I don't have a whole lot to say, but I don't got a lot of information.
I'm just giving you the most updated information because I know that people are interested in what's happened with John Williams, and some of you are so freakin lazy won't read the articles yourself.
You wait for me, but thank you for you because it wasn't for people like you.
Ah, channels like me wouldn't exist, all right, so ex Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola he gave his take on Tom Brady's future and Nick grows.
It goes like this.
Danny Amendola, the latest, the latest NFL player toe way into the future of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
As we all know by now, Brady is able to become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career in March unless he and the Patriots come to a contract agreement.
The lights back on unless you got no contract agreement Before that point, the 42 year old quarterback has spent his entire 20 year career in New England.
Ah, but nothing lasts forever, and you can almost bet most teams would love to add Brady to the roster.
And if he chose to leave the Patriots mn.
Dole appeared on ESPN SportsCenter on Friday, where he was asked about Brady's upcoming decision.
He doesn't know exactly what will happen, but he noted family definitely will play a factor.
It's going to go however he wants.
He's the ultimate competitors, Amendola said.
I think as his kids get older, he wants to spend more time with his family.
I think that's gonna weigh heavily on the decision and where he goes and he can set that up the way he wants his competitive nature, his ability to go through the roof and whatever team gets him.
If he stays in New England, or if you go somewhere else, he's going to be high level football there.
He's gonna bring high level football there.
End quote When asked about the Los Angeles Chargers being a potential destination for Brady MM Dola admitted it's difficult to see the six time Super Bowl champion in a different uniform quote.
It's hard for me to see him in any other jersey than a Patriots jersey.
So I'm holding on just like everybody else's. Amendola.
Sad Patriots unquote now look, Patriot fans obviously would love Brady to return for at least one more season in New England, and most of them probably wouldn't mind Amendola coming back as well.
The Patriots need an upgrade in their depth and talent at wide receiver before the 2020 season, and Amendola will be a free agent in March.
All right, where do I start with that? Number one? I'm disappointed in Danny Amendola.
He gave us nothing, and I'm sick of reading all these different reports.
And guys, just so you know, when I do my prep, I don't pre read this stuff.
I looked at the titles.
I looked at the titles.
I read the description of the article and then I read it.
That's why sometimes I get halfway through one and I'll abandon it because I realize how stupid it is.
I like to react.
I like to react in person with you.
That's the way I am.
Ah, Amendola gave us nothing there, and that's and that's all This is Article after article conversation after conversation.
Ex teammate, expert inside source.
Whoever you want to talk about, all they do is consistently tell us nothing.
I think that we need to stop harboring and getting all worked up over things that are being tweeted and written about, mainly because we're never gonna get any solid piece of information until the Patriots and Brainy either say something themselves or until something gets done.
The Onley article that we got any sort of confirmation that the Patriots want to do anything with Tom Brady was when Robert Kraft said they plan on re signing, uh Brady because I came straight out of the horse's mouth that came out of one of the most that came out of the most important person in one Patriots place and in last those are the quotes forgetting and I don't mean inside sources and sources say He said this.
I mean, unless we're getting direct quotes like we get from Robert Kraft, we can't believe anything now touching upon the Patriot.
Fans would like to have Amendola back.
I hear that a lot.
You read my YouTube comments.
People are talking about Danny Amendola all the time here, live on SportsCastr right now, my boy Rhino just road has been czar, not upgrades, guys that I gotta tend to agree.
I don't think we're living in a nostalgic past, thinking about bringing Amendola back to the Patriots.
It's like wanting to draft Randy Moss is son.
I think we'd be giving up a lot of good talent to bring in Marsh's son because of a nostalgic moment because of a nostalgic season when Tom Brady and his dad played really well.
I'm sure that Amendola will come in and perform better than he's performed in Miami in Detroit because of his knowledge of the system and because of Tom Brady and yada yada yada.
But I want the pages that they're gonna spend money on somebody.
This light is driving me crazy.
I want I want them to spend money on on Hooper on Henry.
Bring in a tight end because trust me, if you bring in a solid tight end, the Patriots receiving corps will be just fine.
But a lot of it is going to come down from the tight end position or, you know a good example here, a suggestion is trade for O. J. Howard.
I just don't think that Danny Amendola is the answer for the New England Patriots.
And that's not me hating on Amendola.
I know some of you been watching me for a couple of years.
You know, I hated the way he left the Patriots.
You know, I hated the way he left taking shots at Bill Belichick, but this has nothing to do with that.
I mean, we forgave Jamie Collins right? If a guy can come in and contribute.
And when Jamie Collins came back to the Patriots, this here man, I was stoked for Collins because I said it right.
I said it. I said, The Patriots.
The Patriots were looking for Jamie Collins the day they traded away Jamie Collins.
So we're really it's, I don't know.
I just to me, to me, m and all is not the guy to come save this team and we'll have to see from there and look and I get it.
I'm reading some of the stuff I get, the people who want him and oh, I can reason.
I can listen to your reason and get it.
I can reason with myself and say that Amendola would be the piece If Amendola If Danny Middle is available at the end of March beginning of April, then I'd say Bring back Amendola and and he would beam to me Maur than, ah, last ditch effort.
He'd b'more than, ah, a last resort.
But I would look at the other available free agents in the famine.
Towler called and says, Hey, I got an offer and you think you have an opportunity to bring in a hoop or somebody like that? You let em and Dole ago you say OK, go, go sign your offer.
We don't have time to look at you right now.
If March 30th comes around, even March 25th comes around, You know, I think that's what, seven days after free agency starts, that's nine days after the legal tampering period starts.
Amador still available all the big names and you thought you could be in on You've made all your trade calls.
You go signing Amendola very much like, because I think signing Danny Amendola at this point would be like when they brought back then when they signed to Marius Thomas.
And I don't think the Mary's Thomas was a bad signing.
Um, I think A lot of you guys know I was big on the day Marius Thomas signing.
But where they signed him, if they would've signed him in March of last year, I would have hated the day.
Marius Thomas signing I've been like everybody who was available.
You signed the Marius Thomas.
That's how I feel about Danny Amendola.
But you sign a March 25th or beginning of April if I'm in Florida and I got a thing that Danny Amendola is coming back.
I'm leaving on April 4th.
Yeah, I'm cool it that I'm good.
With Amendola leaving, the Patriots are coming back to the Patriots.
All right, I got one more subject I want to talk about.
Now here's the article.
It's Aaron Hernandez.
Patriots teammate Devin McCourty dismisses killer inside Netflix.
Siri's calling it, saying I wasn't a fan.
This article comes to us courtesy from pop culture dot sports or pop culture dot com slash sports.
It was John Newby, that road It goes like this and that Flix three part do***entary about former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been turning heads in, sparking conversations since its release.
The viewers have been fascinated by the killer killer inside the mind of Aaron Hernandez.
But one former teammate didn't quite enjoy the experience.
Patriots safety Devin McCourty was not a fan.
The veteran defensive back discussed the Netflix do***entary with his brother Jason, during an episode of double coverage with the McCord twins.
He was a teammate of Hernandez from 2010 to 2012 and, as he explained the biggest issue for him, where the unexpected repercussions as well as some of the interviews quote.
I wasn't a fan, McCord, he said during the podcast.
And I think the thing that was really disgusting about the whole thing wasn't the do***entaries fault per se.
But I was listening to the radio today and because the do***entary has come out and now everyone's talking about Hey, did you see it? What happened? The family of Odin Lloyd's received messages via social media.
People send in letters like telling them they did a horrible thing and they brought her name is down.
This was not. McCord is only issue with the do***entary.
He also discussed the fact that some of the inside sources into Hernandez mind may not have been the best insight.
They did not have the most time with the former tight end, so it wasn't really possible for them to have that information.
Quote the do***entary called Like Getting into the Mind.
He said You interview Patriots former offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan, who didn't know him.
You interview Lay Boden, who kind of played with him but was on the I r Jermaine Wiggins didn't play with him.
Chris Borland was from San Francisco.
He retired retired early linebackers in play with them.
I don't think he was even in the league until, like two or three years after this happened.
Now the syriza surfaced on Netflix McCord.
He is hoping that everyone can move on the family of Odin.
Lloyd has been receiving terrible message from viewers, and there's many other individuals affected, including Hernandez's fiancee and daughter, McCord.
He has seen this sad story and is now ready to be over it.
He wants people to quote, let it go and move on to the far more important things.
As you said on the paws cat podcast, Let's stop digging into this end. Quote.
I had a very very similar feeling about it.
And I briefly mentioned it here on my show about two weeks ago.
But I'm gonna talk a little bit more about it now.
That do***entary was made for people like my sister.
My sister didn't really know the Hernandez story.
She'd heard of it shed.
You know, I heard about the Hernandez situation and you know who did it, but she didn't really know the story.
And she was texting me, asking me questions about things.
And and she's like, Wow, I can't believe it in this and that and you know, But even she said to me, What I found was is they focused the whole thing on him being a *******ual or bi***ual and and C T and number one if you're a Patriots fan, you probably know all about the Aaron Hernandez situation.
And you probably knew everything that came out of that do***entary.
I mean, they did not tell me the only thing that was kind of cool, I guess you could say was we got to hear the conversation between him and his fiancee and him and his mother on the and his cousin and stuff on the prison phones when they were showing the recordings of the conversation when he was in prison.
Besides that, we all knew the story, and I just felt that there was a narrative being pushed around, you know, like, Oh, Aaron Hernandez did these crimes because he was gay or he did these crimes because he had C t.
And look, I don't have c t.
I got it and well, maybe I do.
But you know, there's hundreds, maybe thousands of football players that have CT that I've had had injuries.
I had had had injuries playing football.
I'm sure anybody else that's played football is had a head injury.
You know, they're not people.
The hundreds of thousands football players aren't going around committing these kind of egregious crimes.
And to me, sometimes it was like they were trying to take the accountability away.
But I don't understand why.
Now you had to keep talking about this guy being gay, how this helped the world how this helped his family, how this helped anybody.
And this isn't me being home a phobic.
This isn't anything like I don't know.
Are there gay football players in the NFL right now.
I'm sure there's a lot more than you think there is.
Am I gonna make fun of them? No, cause they're going to kick my ass.
You know, whatever floats your boat, man.
I don't care what you do with your life.
I don't care who you married.
We're all human beings, man.
Life's too short to care about what other people are doing or old hate in your heart because of what other people are doing.
I'm a Christian man.
I'm not preaching.
I'm just saying I'm a Christian.
And in the Bible that all Christians read now without sin, cast the first stone.
And there ain't no mother on this planet making Not that can cast the first stone.
And I'm not saying *******uality is a sin.
I'm just saying Cast the first stone.
I didn't like it.
I don't think they brought in anybody who knew Aaron Hernandez.
I don't think that they represented the story.
I don't think that did it.
Justice for Odin Lloyd and the Lloyd family.
I mean, number one.
The Lloyd family now has to relive this all over again because, you know, even if there weren't idiots and you took down Aaron Hernandez, I mean, you know, people are gonna be asking questions about it.
I've never had a family member killed.
I'm sure I wouldn't want to relive it day in and day out.
You know, 5 10 years later.
When did this happen? Back in 2012 or 2013.
I think it was right after the Super Bowl, so I mean, I don't get it to me.
I just don't get it to me.
It's I sit here and think, Why? Why you bringing in players who never played with him? You're bringing in his third string quarterback from high school.
You know, him and his father really made it sound like, Oh, you know, here we were a star quarterback star tight end.
Yeah, well, you know what? You got exposed because people put out the stats and you never played.
You went to star quarterback.
You're the third stringer for most of your career.
You were never a starter.
You're gonna get this insight on over, you know, star quarterback, tight end.
And whatever you and Hernandez did in the bedroom when you guys were in high school has nothing to do with what happened with Odin Lloyd.
If Fernandez was gay, I'm sure it probably beat up on him.
Our society is still not completely accepting of it.
It definitely wasn't accepted on the back.
That, especially for a football player, does.
I mean, he's gonna go super hardcore gangster.
Come on, Hernandez tastic.
There has to be accountability for his actions.
Yes, that I work with people who are have mental health issues and addiction issues.
That's and that's my biggest thing.
And we really work around employment with them, getting the back of employment.
I get them in the better part.
Another of the recovery.
I tell them all the time.
They're just because you did something when you have mental health doesn't mean you can't take accountability for it.
Just because maybe you're in the state of psychosis or you were in a depression or you just weren't yourself at that time.
That's fine. You still have to take accountability.
There were still lives affected here, but I think with my thing with Hernandez is is after watching that do***entary I don't even know howto how to paint him, and I think it was sensationalized.
I think that I don't know.
There's just a whole lot of things about it I didn't like.
I agree with McCord e.
It could have been a ******.
Could have done a much better job.
I'm gonna throw that light across the room.
I'm telling you right now, because it is driving me freaking crazy.
I got I don't even know.
Yeah, yesterday at work today doesn't It's obviously not the light bulb.
Anyways, I think that Light's telling me it's time to wrap up the show.
Well, I started at the top with this, and I'll finish with this because I think it's important.
Rest in peace to Kobe Bryant.
Rest in peace to his young daughter.
Rest in peace to everybody who lost their life on that crash.
Today, my prayers and my thoughts go out to every family fan teammate who is hurting today.
Any time, the realm, our realms come together, real life in sport, it hurts and it hurts more than anything.
And I'm not gonna redo the same speech I already did.
But sports is entertainment.
Everything that you and I talked about today was for entertainment purposes.
Today, a part of our entertainment became real life.
This is normally the time that I thank all of you, but I think all I could do right now is this Colby.
