Pay your respects, Robert Craft. Yes, AH81 (I made that up. Credit me with it every time you use it.) never won any Super Bowls but he had 18 touchdowns in 3 seasons with the Pats. The dual tight-end formation starring Gronk and Hernandez was unstoppable when they were both fully healthy. And in all seriousness if he never got caught they would’ve gone down in history as the most iconic duo in NFL history.
I realize the White House visit is for members of the Super Bowl champion team only, but throw the guy a bone here. He would’ve helped the Pats win many Super Bowls. More potent than Gronk when healthy. Also, he was framed and a victim of white oppression (he was half Italian). If it was a black guy who did this (O.J. Simpson) he’d be off the hook and taking the NFL by storm.
R.I.P. Aaron Hernandez. You were a great man.
