In what seems to be a bizarre move by the NFL, Ian Rapoport issued an apology on Twitter for something that he did which caused the league office to suspend him for two weeks and he never said what that was. As best I can determine, the offense was that he posted something on social media that was about "Manscape" -- a personal grooming aid designed to clean up a man's hairy privates.
I don't know what the hell he actually said that brought on such a harsh response by the Thought Police, but I wondered if it had something to do with the Manscape commercial featuring Gronkowski and thought I would link that here for those that might've missed it, because, thanks to UT, I can do stuff like that again. I showed it to my wife and she was disgusted by it.
Gronk is a fun guy, he was here too, He is not getting in trouble or anything so I dont see anything wrong with it. Players are allowed to have a personality. It might not float yourI think he referenced it and referencing a non-NFL sponsored company's product is a no-no apparently.
Gronk is becoming a clown. I know he's laughing all the way to the bank, but come on man. Some dignity at least.
Gronk has played fine, his body is just not what it used to be. Man fans sure do hate their teams hero's. As I said, he is not breaking any laws, he is blocking his ass off and still trying to play. Can't fault a player for wanting to play if someone still wants them.Gronk wasn't twatting around like that here and he was a superb player first and foremost for us. You can get away with shenanigans if you're producing on the field. All Tampa has done is blow money on a former great on the urging of Tommy Boy. So they get Gronk and his "personality" but none of the production.

Its an exaggeration, but its just how much glory fans get at watching players they used to love not do as well when they get older and go to another team. Don't worry the media is worse."Hate"? Come on man, you have to stop it with the exaggerations and hyperbole.
Well true, the pats can't pay him that with the way our cap is hosed up. Probably wouldnt anyway. I guess I just dont know who he is hurting to warrant the comments.Irrelevant. He was not going to play for the Pats. And the Pats wouldn't pay him what he's getting anyway.

Why? If he wants to still play, I dont see the issue. Players get older, some quit, some don't. If he wants to play and someone is willing to pay him, then I dont see the issue. He is a big boy, he can handle it.But it's not glory. Gronk deservedly made the NFL100 team last year and will go down as one of the greatest TE in history if not the greatest. I hate to see him play now half the player he was.
