Forgot about this, and I was reminded about it from the writer's comments to Doug Gottlieb's radio show, which were transcribed by PFT here.

Here's the article if you haven't read it, and you should. If the incessant winning, and sometimes routing, or Spygate didn't develop within you a visceral dislike for the Patriots, then reading about management's actions while the Hernandez's erratic behavior was clearly lurking likely will.
Hernandez may evade a conviction, in the same fashion that George Zimmerman did - the man is very likely guilty, but he may have been overcharged by the prosecution.
Jump to the final four graphs of the RS article for more, and remember, the authorities are no longer scouring bodies of water for any gun that was potentially the murder weapon. For what people are calling a faux gangster, Hernandez may have been more adept at clandestinely covering his tracks than he's being given credit for.
The NFL has the financial wherewithal to write a check for $765 million dollars (I know it's spread over years, I was writing for melodrama) to make the concussion lawsuits vanish, but to keep that revenue coming in, it needs players. Good ones. Watchable ones. Is the league so desperate to welcome an unconvicted Hernandez back to the game as the author suggests? I say no.
