Patriots Partying After Sb Loss

Recommended Posts

They took the link down, it had Matt Light and Rob Gronkowski shirtless at the lm-f-ao concert after the SB.

If I had an NFL body, I'd probably be shirtless at all times. Funerals, Weddings, Parent/Teacher Conferences, would all be reasons to oil up and go shirtless. but thats just me.

Happy Days in the IndyTrav household. The season started off bad, but ended about as well as it could! Gotta be in good spirits about that!

But seriously, look at Gronkowski in that pic. Dude is a mountain. Im not sure I would ever even get away from the mirror in order to show off my body, I'd be lost in my own pecks.

Why....? I dont know but if the Colts partied after the 2009 loss I'd be ticked. Just my opinion.

Yea, I could see partying a week or two later with some teammates in celebration of a great season. But right afterward....? That seems kinda confused and misguided. Even if they did feel like cutting loose, don't do it publicly. It sends the wrong message for sure.

I guess that depends on which type of NFL body you are talking about....If you were like one of them "chubby" o-line d-line dudes I doubt I'd be sprouting around without a shirt...think of Wilfork lol

Anyone remember a few years ago when the Eagles lost in the playoffs and a lot of them were joking around with the other team? I forget who they played, but I distinctly remember a number of them (Asante Samuel comes directly to mind) jumping around and laughing and having fun literally right on the field after a playoff loss.

Well, if the Patriots players cannot party...........the I guess none of the NFL players other than the Giants should have.

These are young men........I think it's fine.

Yea but within a few hours of letting down your fans? How many Pats fans were partying late into the night? It's no big deal to me, however. I can see why they wanted to blow off steam, but to do so publicly seemed a bit of an affront to the fans whom were heartsick.

I took that as just good sportsmanship. I see how the fans might be bothered though.

A little clarification on this:

1. This was a By Invite only Party thrown by Robert Kraft

2. Gronk was there with his Brothers who probably did all the could get him drunk

3. As a Pats fan I am not upset over this, as BB said best get away and forget about it for now and get back to work in a few weeks.

I personally tired of the media making stories out of nothing, this with the Giselle yelling something off the cuff at Giant fans razzing her IMMEDIATLY after the game. (I bet insulting her husband) Wow like none of us done that to fans being jerks to us after they win lol.

I can see both sides...as a fan Id like to think that they were as depressed as I was after the game ended...and on the other hand, I equate it to like when you get dumped or lose your job or have a bad day and your buddies want to take you out to get your mind off it...and i cant fault them for that.

they didnt let their fans down. had a great year, didnt finish it. season was over party all you want. if this was footage from the night before the game i'd be upset. they are humans, they are allowed to relax once in a while. i'm pretty sure the players on that team were all upset about the loss. it doesnt mean they all have to go back to their rooms and sulk for 48 hours.

Fans reaction to this just shows fans care way to much about sports. To most of the players this is their job and their job is over and they are moving on with their lives. Fans want to know the players care as much as they do to justify their insantity when it comes to sports.

How many of us after a horrible day meet their friends at a bar to have a few drinks?

I love sports, I have played sports all my life, and my wife even jokes that she gets her husband back now that the season is over, but when I start getting upset over players going to a party after the game then I knew I am starting to care to much.

Hearing Mike Golic discuss this helped clarify it for me quite a bit. He talked about how many of these guys will never be teammates again, which really brought some understanding to me. My work moved to Oklahoma last year and after our last day we had a huge bash to say goodbye, many people got carried out by loved ones from all the drinking. I equated it to that. We weren't celebrating what had just happened, but rather we were reflecting on the years we spent together and letting it all out.

to add a little more perspective..... the party involved the players getting up on stage with Kraft offering toasts to him and the family celebrating a great season and vowing to get back to this game again. matt light got up there and told the fans not to get down, they will be back. adding my own opinion but i'm sure they entered the party very down, once the toasts got going and people picked each other up it got festive. as it should. its easy for people to look at a still shot on TMZ and say the players are partying after a loss?????

This... couldn't have said it better.

In my mind, this puts a little perspective on the situation. Yes, they lost the Super Bowl. And yes, football is big business and makes a lot of people very wealthy.

But you know what?

At the end of the day... it's still just a game, win or lose.

    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
    • He is allowed his opinion just like the rest of us. Based on where we are, I think he will be way off the mark.    But this will be a very strange season if it happens, so who knows.    We have all been watching this stupid league for many years and we should know not to take anything for granted.   Other team improve as well, you know.   I'm hoping for top 10 though.
    • I agree. Just the maturity of all the Rookies and second year players should make a significant difference. With a couple of exceptions, the Starting D was pretty darn young by the end of the season. 
    • Silly nonsense.   Very disappointing.   USA Today used to be really good.   Even if you knew nothing about the Colts, you could know this.    We spent 7 of 10 2019 draft picks on defense.   It's not unreasaonble to expect most if not all of them to be better.   The question is how much?   But Rock and Okereke and Willis are starters.   Benagu, Tell, should be key reserves.   Speed and Green to ST's.     So, the defense SHOULD be better on that alone.   And I'm almost positive I read something this off-season about a trade for Buckner, and some free agent signing's including Rhodes.   Plus the return of a healthy Turay.   That's a lot of important faces on that side of the ball.   You don't need to be a rocket scientist to be able to predict we should be a better defense.  The only question is.....    now much better?  
    • Barring something completely unexpected,   Blackmon is going to be mostly a non-factor, even if he somehow manages to get on the field.    First, he won't have played for roughly 9-10 months.  Second,  because of injury,  no rookie camps in the spring.    No summer camp, pre-season camp and missing the first part of the season.    So, he'll have a few weeks of practice and you expect him to be a factor right away?    It's among the longest of long shots.   Could it happen?   Long shot.   A one percent chance, maybe two.   Odds are if he plays, he'll be OK but nothing special.    The year to expect Blackmon to show something is 2021.   His rehab and practice time should be back to normal.   Sorry.
