    Did anyone read this line from Slater, which provides some important context to this and should have people let up on this Gronk "travesty"


    "Now, we're all under the impression these are replica trophies, then we learned that indeed these were not replicas," special teams standout Matthew Slater said. "These were the real trophies."

    So I guess I should rephrase. The act doesn't bug me, it's that it seems like we're not gonna fix it (or that's my impression from the trophy case photo). If they're gonna fix it then idgaf otherwise it's just ugly

    They’ll put it in rice. It will be fine. There are bigger things in life to worry about other than a trophy that you’ll never, ever get to touch in your life having a dent on it.

    tbh I didn't care about it as much until you started telling me about how I did nothing to earn it so now obviously I care too much and I gotta get my dirty undeserving hands on it by any means. And when I do I'd like it to not be an ugly dented *****

    That’s fine. You praise your fake Gods. My life is devoted to my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Through him, all things are possible.

    Honestly, some of you...the Lombardi will be fine, which is why the Pats put out the story of Gronk denting it in the first place. Kraft will hire someone to fix it. It's all good. Just be thankful Gronk didn't Gronk Spike it, in which case I and most people would be pretty pi$$ed.

    It sounds to me like more people are outraged that not everyone thinks this is cute and funny than there are people actually outraged about the dented trophy.

    Yea I don't really understand why people have an issue with some people finding this decision by Gronk to be a stupid one. Not the worst thing in the world, of course the trophy will be repaired.. still dumb though.

    Bob wasn't there. The Lombardi now is dented due to rub-tug.

    I posted this subject in the Casual thread before this thread was created (I have since deleted it)...I didn't feel it deserved a thread on it's own...clearly I was mistaken. IMO the dent is not a big deal...it seems it's gone out of hand here with the personal attacks tho.

    Leave the dent in for history, especially since Gronk did it. So fitting that this one would get smashed. Perfect symbol and keepsake for the team.

    Yep which shows that a dumb player if they work hard enough they can learn the Patriots playbook.:) Let's hope Gronk or meat head is not the only exception.

    No outrage. I'm just not sure what effect this has on your life. There are things in the world such as family, bills, debt, job security, war, disease, etc. to worry about. Some 30 year old denting a trophy that you'll probably never see and definitely will never lay a finger on seems to be pretty low on the list of things to care about. Especially when the team that actually earned it on the field doesn't even seem to care in the slightest.

    Yea, the team looks pissed and disrespected.
