    But (if I remember correctly) some teams saw it as an opportunity to spend shed-loads in the absence of a salary cap. How did that work out for them?

    (Edit - I should point out that I know the answer)

    2 wins, 14 losses. But I suspect you know that and are being a smart arse.

    Haha you could lose the smart to be fair, just a slow day and the tennis isn't that exciting so far!

    You could follow the Aaron Hernandez murder case..that's a pretty insane story.

    Yeah it's a bit odd isn't it. Not quite sure what to make of it all.

    On a football note it could hurt the Pats a lot, as with Gronkowski struggling so much it looks like Hernandez would have a bigger part to play this year. Oh well, I guess there's always Tebow to step in for them....

    Very odd. I hope people don't jump to conclusions though.

    Assange is still at the Embassy isn't he?

    Circumstantial evidence making that very difficult at this point.

    I'd be stunned if he wasn't somehow involved.

    Pats lose, Lloyd, Gronk, Hernandez and Welker all in one off-season. That's 75% of their receiving stats gone.

    The tight ends better start worrying then if they have so many receivers to make up for next year!!

    The world would be a better place if more people understood that circumstantial evidence is not proof.

    It's all a bit.....odd. It's like people want to say something about it, but can't. I'm finding it a difficult story to follow in some ways.

    The first 10 minutes live on the morning TV here in Chicago were funny with no delay setup to remove the naughty words.

    I was just reading about this. What's the feeling over there MA? Is it that he's just covering for people or that he's more directly involved in some way? I know he fell a lot in the draft because of questions over his background, but this is a big story and I'll bet the Pats are wondering what's going on.

    Without wanting to upset BM:

    The feeling is he at the very least concealed evidence and it's entirely possible he is directly responsible.

    He dropped 3 rounds in the draft despite being a first round "talent". I have it on good authority that several teams had him in the "do not draft under any circumstances" bucket. Quite what surfaced in the due diligence is subject to speculation of course.

    I don't think he will be playing much football this season. The Pats are in a bit of a state. But they have Brady and are in the AFC East...so they'll still win 11 games.

    Erm, Is there any chance we can keep this thread for mindless speculation on LCFC signings, every time I see a new post I'm expecting tantalising news.

    What? Where else am I meant to post NFL drivel if it's not in here?

    (I'll start a new thread)
