DATELINE: Tales from a Loser
Big Head & Little Mind
When you find a hater of the Patriots, he will be unrelenting in trying to spew forth his venom.
That case in point can be found in scurrilous Bart Scott, sometime player and now occasional analyst and guest commentator on the game. You may recall CBS dumped him from their pre-game show for being negative and subjective.
This week he tried to dispel any positive feelings for the Patriots by linking them again to Aaron Hernandez, the dead player who murdered a bunch of people and got away with it. Now he is trying to tie murderer Aaron Hernandez to a team he had not played for in years.
Former Jet perennial loser, Scott shared his memories that Hernandez was often taunted on the field by other players for two murders in Florida that he was never charged with. Those murders occurred while Hernandez was a student at the University of Florida with the notorious, now reformed Pouncey Twins. As Scott’s friends, he omitted them from the story.
According to Scott, players would try to unnerve Hernandez by asking him where he buried the Florida bodies, long before the killings in the Boston area.
Scott was not done with his Super Bowl week story. He insisted that the worst part of Hernandez’s career was being signed by a New England team: legendary winning Patriots.
In Scott’s mind, there was nothing worse than playing for a hometown team because Hernandez was too close to his gang roots in Connecticut, which led to his murder sprees.
Why is this coming out when the Pats go to the Super Bowl for media week? Scott is trying to create the notorious distraction that Bill Belichick always warns his player are out there.
In this case, they are out in the fevered mind of Bart Scott.
