    With no proof to back it up... the use of anabolic steroids often results in a wildly aggressive personality traits.

    It would be easy to understand that if he used these drugs to 'make' the team violence could easily be a side effect...

    Food for thought.

    There are 10s of thousands like Hernandez. They are the product of the Democrat ruination of the traditional fabric of society instituted by LBJ and made increasingly virulent by all Democrats since. The purpose was to create an underclass dependent not on the family, moral values and a strong work ethic but dependent on the State. They earn their living on the Democrat Vote Plantation and supply government employment for workers who are also beholding to Democrats for their jobs. This is why every major city in the US has become a sh*thole.

    Hernandez was just more visible because he could play football at a high level.

    Thanks for posting DGH. Great SI article. I say bad egg. Seems like his parents did a good job raising their kids. His brother turned out OK. IMHO in adulthood, Aaron didn't care about God, his family, his teammates, his talent and other peoples lives. He cared about himself. In the end he didn't have the courage to face the punishment handed down to him.

    Perhaps Hernandez grew up and realized what a fool he had been. Self loathing was his cause of death.

    Had recent conversations with friends regarding our workforce. One was a contractor who said he was having a hard time finding people who even wanted to work. One was a friend who said the he was having a hard time getting his employees to even show up and one of his employees even had the nerve to ask for a raise after being employed at his company for three days. Another buddy who runs a manufacturing company said his people have terrible work ethics and seem to do as little as possible even though there are incentives. It seems as though a lot of these complaints are regarding the younger generation. All that being said, I whole heartily agree with ShotStop.

    As a life-long Florida Gator fan, I have been following Hernandez's story closely.

    All I can say is that he alone is responsible for all that happened to him, including ending his own life.

    Understand what you are saying but he didn't really lose it. He threw it away, intentionally.

    His self-worth was so fragile, he let what others thought of him dictate his choices. It's too bad.

    I read the whole article. I tend to think his brother didn't know him as well as he thought he did or perhaps as well as he did when they were younger. His brother had been getting in trouble in college and the NFL teams saw the writing on the wall which is why he dropped from 1st round to 4th round. No doubting the kid had talent, but he had the brain of a pile of dog crap. What I find the real shame is how him getting popped for murder ruined his brothers coaching career. That's just not right nor fair. Sounds like he has his head on straight and I wish him the best in his roofing business.

    Why sit in prison for life? End it. I respect his decision. Still a very sad ending for someone who had it all at one time.

    Isn't that a kick die in Prison and he is no longer considered a murderer.

    Looks like his brain is going to be examined - searching for CNS trauma from football...

    Seemed from the outside looking in he had everything going for him. Makes you wonder what was in his mind when he killed someone. Sad story all the way around.

    If they expunge his conviction the Patroits might have to pay his family a $3.5 million bonus.
