I have a family member with video of Gronk at a Las Vegas pool party. Guy pulls his pants down and scratches his balls for the camera. No lie. To his credit, the family member decided not to send the video to the usual sources. Not sure if he deleted it though.
The turning started last year when he kept teasing comebacks with "big announcements", only to shill one of his new sponsors. Still love what he did here and the attitude he brought here, but even I got lukewarm on him after that.
Gronks lowbrow "hi jinx" while funny at first have become so predictable and adolescent, that they are not funny or impactful anymore.
He is grabbing everything he can in the short run, but in the long run the opportunities will shrink to next to nothing. Its good he is saving his money.
He is an all time great HOFer, but no entertainment talent at all
Gronk is going to discover that the 30 year old frat boy routine gets very old very quick when he sucks at the one thing he used to be good at. To paraphrase a line from Bull Durham: If you act like a frat boy while you catch 1,200 yards and 14 TD's then the press will think you're colorful. But if you don't do that you're just a loser.
