Rolling Stone says UFM covered for A. Hernandez

Pretty heavy accusations by Rolling Stone.  Do they have the facts to back up what they stated?  Well, Rolling Stone has been soft in the documentation department before.  They know which lines not to cross, but they walk right up and lean over them.  In order to get readership and sell ads.  Follow the money....

From the Rolling Stone post: 

• Hernandez was a heavy user of angel dust, and had become so paranoid over the last year that he carried a gun wherever he went.

• He surrounded himself with a cohort of gangsters, and cut himself off from his family and teammates.

• Hernandez had so infuriated his head coach, Bill Belichick, with missed practices and thug-life stunts, that he was one misstep from being cut.

• Both his parents, Dennis and Terri, had criminal records, as did much of his extended family.

• Terri allegedly cheated on Dennis before his death with a violent drug dealer named Jeffrey Cummings, then married Cummings after Dennis died and moved him into the house she shared with Aaron.

"In college his coach (then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer) may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents — an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar."


Here's hoping that the story doesn't have legs, because frankly it is a potential distraction.  What do you do if you are Coach Meyer?  Sue them for defamation?  Ignore it?  Make a public statement after already making public statements? I see it through the eyes of an OSU fan, but I have to think that the University would have filtered out anything like this during the hiring process if it were true.  I'm certain that if there was evidence that UFM had covered up these serious crimes for Hernandez then it would have been public knowledge by now.  

One thing is clear, Aaron Hernandez had a rough life growing up.  I can only imagine what it was like because I had a mom and dad and stability, such that I didn't have to learn how to simply survive at a very young age.  Sad to see it happen to anyone.

I'm sorry but this was covered in depth in the forum today. It seems that the article used Urbans name to draw page views. Nothing to see here.

I finally got a set of Gold Pants!

I haven't read a Rolling Stone magazine in years. The band was pretty good though. Also, why would Urban potentially cover for anyone involved in a potential drive-by?  kind of dumb.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Seriously this needs to stop.  If Coach Meyer did something show the damn evidence.  If not shut the hell up and don't write it.  Tired of seeing our Coach who up to this point has done everything right constantly the target of baseless accusations.  Go Bucks and go Coach Meyer.

Hernandez made poor choices that reflected negatively on a lot of people.

This  story belongs in the National Enquirer.  Crap journalism to sell papers is out of control.  Do facts even matter anymore?  Moving on.

Fake bs just to sell a crappy magazine. Outrage I say!

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

In other news, Urban Meyer is also at fault for the civil war in Syria, malaria, and NBC's shitty comedy lineup.

It wouldn't surprise me if he did cover up for him. Im sure that "circle of trust" thing he had at Florida was legit as well.
