    Don't do it Gronk! How can we mock all of the other players/teams who do these stupid shows if you do one? Who watches these things anyway? I hope BB puts the kybosh on it.

    I can tell you that unless Bill says no way you will see Gronk on Dancing With The Stars sooner or later.

    This kid is the next big name in the next generation of superstar athletes....low profile for this kid will be hard to do,he's got the type of character that Hollywood and the media like.

    Sounds like good clean fun to me.

    If i cared, I'd be worried about ochocinco pulling a groin muscle doing cartwheels to prevent someone getting more attention than him...but i don't.:bricks:

    That's not possible...if Ocho thought he was even taking a back seat in terms of attention to any other Patriot he would step in front of a speeding bus.

    He's going to either be absolutely hilarious on this show or come off as a complete idiot. There's a fine line, and it could go either way :lol2:

    for ****'s sake...what an attention whore this guy is turning out to be. Probably some deep issue of growing up with a million brothers.

    I agree.

    This won't be a popular thought with many, but personally I wish that Gronk would reel it in a bit. He seems to be a little young in some decision making.

    At this point it shouldn't be viewed as any big deal, but one could possibly see some potential for poor decision making based on some of his 'younger' and greener choices to this point.

    As long as he performs on the field, I'm good with the level that it's at, but I don't want the envelope pushed too much further. Fame and youth can do weird things to some people, especially those who may have a screw or two loose already.

    The kid does a ton of charity work which is awesome - and he seems as genuine as it comes. Exposure wise this could be his first national misstep depending on his goals. Appearing on a show like this in and of itself isn't the issue. Being associated with a cast of total B-list celebrity wannabe losers on the other hand...

    It's just another opportunity for conquests for The Gronk. I can't imagine this kid doesn't have enough opportunities that throw their panties at him as it is.

    oh yeah...

    This doesn't bother me. The guy is the best TE in the league and isn't making a commensurate salary. Let him get his money using promos/media. I'm sure BB understands this.

    It's one thing to tell a guy like Edleperson to stay out of the media but when it's your stud TE who is represented by Rosenhaus, you make exceptions.

    Being repped by Rosenhaus is kind of a catch 22 scenario. He gets deals done here, although usually for clients who have had trouble getting deals elsewhere for a variety of reasons. And he's often complicit in those. He sells a lifestyle that is probably unhealthy for most of his clientele. He lost 14 clients this spring and a couple like TO are suing him for lousy advice and hooking them up with fraudulent financial advisors.

    I'm sure he'll be living with the repurcussions of this through the locker room (meaning he'll get teased feriously by the event). At this point, bad press seems to roll off him, but he still has to perform.

    The national media will eat him alive if he comes in well below expectations (and that's long after BB has taken him to task). I think he's just having some fun and enjoying the spotlight while it lasts. I have no idea what his decisions making is or what he takes into consideration.

    At the end of the day, no crime is being committed and as long as stays clean and does well on the field, I'll want him on my team.

    Really, dude, if you need the attention that badly, just go see Brady's hairstylist.

    Awesome!

    Gronk just staring at the ladies on this show will spawn a bunch of little Gronks all competing for TE spots league-wide in 2033.

    I see that Suh is going to be a Dating Contestant


    I wonder what kind of questions the ladies will answer from Suh to make Ndamukong pick them?

    ......I can see Suh asking 'Would you mind if I try and break your leg or tear your ACL on the first date?' :cool:

    Unfounded lawsuits like Roethlesberger, but baseless hoping he'll settle just to make her go away.

    Actually, that would be funny and might, MIGHT, shame Tommy into a real hair cut.



    Good Gawd, I can see the paternity lawsuits now. Gronkowski, meet Cromartie.

    True but doesn't Gronk remind you of a big happy dog that always wagging his tail and wants to play? The show could be a disaster and he'll be just as happy.:D

    I thought the Pats banned most of their players from these off field activities?

    BC I remember Jarvis Green telling some Boston Radio on how the Pats refused to let him appear in local TV ads and such.

    The new CBA drastically limits what restrictions NFL teams can place on players' contracts regarding off the field activities (both in terms of requirements and prohibitions).

    why would the Pats have told Jarvis Green not to do ads? That's messed up

    I'm failing to see how these guys going on tv in the offseason has anything to with the Pats or their ability to do their jobs

    Seems Gronk's scumball agent has a little PR spin work to do. The guy calling him out wrote a scathing piece about him last week relative to what he's not done for many of the Miami recruits whose backs he's used to climb his path to agent superstardom. Now he's got him handing these kids stacks of cash they can use to buy cars they may never be able to afford out of the gate...

    I'm sure he was a force behind the TOcho Show and several of those players other TV ventures... He'll price guys out of their market and then find them stop gaps, as he did here numerous times... Long list of troubled and/or underperforming clients who never achieved their potential and really struggled with the concept of growing up.
