    Agreed. Rampant opiate use is definitely the way to go, IMO.

    The pen was made for work imo. My life instantly got better a year and a half ago when I got access to cartridges.

    I can’t work while I’m high. If you do a lower level job then I could easily see it though. I did grunt work in a call center while I was in school and would have definitely smoked daily if legal medical weed was available back then and it was as easy to transport as a pen. That job SUCKED. Being high would have taken away the pain that I was doing something that repetitive and, ultimately, worthless back then.

    As much as I would like him to, do not see him ever coming back, he will go down in history as one of the greatest TE's ever and from I have been told and read he is financially savvy & subsequently has done quite well. It may be better for him to be employed as a CBD spokesman($$$) than to further inflict a toll on his already beat up body..

    If he could influence the NFL to allow M, CBD and other derivatives to ease pain, that accomplishment would place him as an all time leader of innovative practice in the NFL, players would be forever indebted to him..

    Even if it’s juts a placebo effect who cares? If it gives someone in pain relief and isn’t hurting them then why not?

    Cant wait for when Gronk comes back.

    Makes complete sense. The Pats offense will be based on WRs and RBs this season. Defenses will have their hands full just defending this new Pats wrinkle. Then you add Gronk about 8 games in who can come in with the pressure off of him to carry the offense. Nothing but gravy for Gronk.

    That would be nice but I wouldn't count on it.

    Gronk was a great player, probably a first ballot HOFer. I'm a little tired of hearing about him now, though. There's football to watch!!!

    From Gronks own mouth he said that he would return to the Pats.

    Gronk wont say no to Brady when it comes down to it. The TE is light and some guys have 1 TE in the 53 plus Watson down the road. It is every bit of a perfect scenario for Gronks return since the Pats did not address the TE position with a high draft pick.

    I see the possibility of Gronk coming back NEXT season, but with 2 provisos. First the NFL allows CBD and other MJ pain products. And 2nd, if he gets the "itch". Obviously he's a passionate and emotional guy. That kind of person will miss the comradery

    Here's the thing. I only see Gronk coming back under 2 provisos. First the NFL allows MJ products as a pain therapy option. I think this will be possible in the current discussions of the new CBA, which will go into affect next season. IIRC the league is currently "studying" the possibility already. The 2nd is if Gronk gets that "itch" to play. Clearly he's a passionate and emotional guy. Give him a year to be be completely pain free and he MIGHT miss the locker room, teammates, game day, fans, etc.

    It's just a shot, and I believe there would be NO chance unless #1 happens. As for #2 it would be 50-50 at best. One could say he has nothing left to accomplish, but the crowd and comradery of the locker room are sometimes more addictive than cocaine. Just sayin'

    Yeah, I’m good on that. Not risking my salary to walk into work high as a kite.

    BINGO! Some people must believe that if the same question is asked 100X, 1000X, or even 1,000,000X they will get the answer they want

    Gronk drawing this out too far. Hook up with a Carnival. Stay retired. We don't need you. It's a myth. Gronk is pain free but this is painful to watch. Now go away. He was great and was paid great.
