    I know you were referencing reporting (or rather, lack thereof) on Ray's case in comparison to AH, but take a look Bleacher Report's incisive background profile.... virtually a cut & paste from frigging Wikipedia. I'd expect better from a HS term paper

    ^^^ One of many reasons I don't read Bleacher Report.

    On another point, it just occurred to me that Roethlisberger and Vick were both suspended well before they were ever charged with a crime. Vick was eventually found guilty but Ben's stuff never went to court.

    I think it's fair to assume the image-conscious NFL isn't going to wait for the wheels of justice on this one. If he gets charged with anything, they will pull out the "indefinite suspension" card once again.

    I've been reading the Pats board and I'm grateful it's much more interesting over there. Some of the topics:

    - A poll showing most fans think Hernandez is guilty and will be cut
    - Several other Hernandez threads
    - Putin stealing Kraft's Super Bowl ring
    - Signing Tim Tebow
    - Gronk needs an offseason chaperone

    It's nice to be boring next to them.

    Goodell's not going to have much of a choice. He's going to feel pressure from one side or another. The national public will ridicule him and his brand(more important) for not taking action. Other players and front offices might not be pleased with what could be perceived as another act of favoritism toward the Patriots.

    His own policy really forces his hand.

    I don't think it is an execution, it would be more of a heated fight that became murder. Execution implies it is planned to get rid of somebody. If this was planned it was a terrible job.

    Exactly, he didn't know them at all and found they were gang members who tagged along with Rays friends of friends that night. Ray was scared to snitch to endanger others lives as well as his own.

    Hernandez is looking like an accessory at this point and directly implicated and trying to cover his tracks.

    Another reason why I can't understand the outcry in Ray's case. The guys that died were FAR from model citizens.

    It's funny that whenever the Atlanta murders get brought up in relation to Ray, they always say something along the lines of "to this day, no one has yet been convicted..." As if that's unusual. The murder clearance rate in this country is only about 65%.

    Except the Atlanta case was cleared. The jury ruled that Ray's companions acted in self defense. Legally, they have been found to have caused those deaths, but doing so was ruled to have not been murder.

    Yeah, I understand that. I guess my impression, when these various authors (I think Florio is the most recent one I saw mention it) bring it up, is that they are trying to insinuate that since no one has ever been convicted, there's a proverbial sword of Damocles still hanging over Ray about it... Maybe it's just me.

    Re: Aaron Hernandez Murder Investigation (Merged)

    Just kind of hopping into conversation as I am unsure of the situations

    Can someone inform to me what the videos I see of Hernandez are where he is running from his car. What was he disposing of?
