Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

Wow. Made for TV movie for sure.

For those that haven't caught up with this yet, this is a pretty good recap ...

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...round/2449237/

So ... if the facts are correct. Body close to house. Dead guy seen with Hernandez mere hours before. Hernandez sued for shooting someone else a week ago. Fast forward to this week and now 'friend' is dead and Hernandez has his house professionally cleaned the very next day and smashes his cell phone and his home surveillance system.

Meanwhile his white Audi was followed by helicopters ... sound a bit familiar?

He appears to be the new O.J. ... all he needs is an all-Hispanic jury and a pair of tight gloves.

re: Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

I think people are jumping to conclusions---did anyone stop to consider the possibility that he was just doing research for a book he's writing about tattooed thugs who are involved with drug dealers and shoot guys in the face and cover up murders?

re: Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

The whole thing sounds like a mix between OJ and Ray Lewis. This won't be as big or as shocking as OJ though. I just hope that if he is guilty, he serves time. I think we've gone far enough with these athletes that think they can do whatever they want and throw money at the problem to make it disappear. Of course that is IF he is proven guilty of anything.

He has yet to be arrested so that's still up in the air. I don't know if they can nail him for obstruction of justice and I don't know how involved he was in the killing of this 'friend', but I do know that innocent people don't destroy cell phones and their home surveillance just because.

I wouldn't be surprised if ends up similar to Ray Lewis. Bring him in on obstruction of justice only to let him walk after he rolls over on some friends. Don't be surprised to see Hernandez out there week 1.

So far, Jayson Williams case was better.

I think he'll get suspended even if he cuts a deal. There has been too much bad press on this for the NFL. No way he gets out of this unscathed.

The Rae Carruth murder case is an underated one.

I'd bet a decent amount of money he won't be out there week 1. Involved in a murder rap, and being sued for shooting another dude in the face in florida. Appears fairly certain he'll be facing at least obstruction charges, that'll be enough for goodell to hit him hard.

re: Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

If he destroyed his cell phone & his security system because there's incriminating evidence on them, did he really destroy the evidence? Wouldn't it be pretty easy to subpoena the cell phone & home security providers to get back ups?

I also wonder what the cleaning crew was for. If they were called in to clean up a bloody mess, how is he going to keep them quiet? Or was he just looking to thoroughly clean fingerprints? Why even outsource that at all?

re: Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

I'd imagine the security system was for outdoor video cams, and I doubt that is backed up offsite, more likely just records to a DVR in his house somewhere (the part he apparently destroyed). The phone, yeah that doesn't make much sense. Maybe he has just watched too much law and order/csi. Same thing with the house cleaning, maybe just trying to make sure there wasn't any small trace evidence.

When I think NFL murder cases, that one always comes to mind first....even over OJ.

As for Aaron Hernandez, I guess we will see just what kind of dbag he turns out to be. I too think that it will end up more Ray Lewis than OJ, but you never know.

5 of the top receivers on the Patriots might not be on the starting lineup come day 1

re: Aaron Hernandez - Worse Since O.J.? [Update: DEAD]

Jayson Williams was the first association for me, but I always took the Rae Carruth one as an extra insult because he was on my fantasy team.

At least Hernandez had the decency to do this before most fantasy drafts...

I think this is better than a made for TV movie. This is potentially one of the all time movies

It's correct, in a way. Hernandez's behavior has indeed been worse since the O.J. trial.
