Rodney Harrison calls out Gronkowski for post-Super Bowl partying

Super Bowl XLVI Broadcasters Press Conference Getty Images

After Sunday night’s loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, several members of the team attended a post-game party.  Thereafter, photos and videos emerged of a shirtless Rob Gronkowski dancing vigorously, despite a high ankle sprain.

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison didn’t like it.

“I guarantee you this, if Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo, Richard Seymour or myself had been at that party, [Gronkowski] probably would have got his head rung,” Harrison told ESPN 1000 in Chicago.  “There’s no reason for that to happen.”

Rodney added that Gronkowski “disrespected himself” with his behavior.

“When we lost the Super Bowl, any of my Super Bowl losses, I was so devastated the last thing I ever wanted to do was party, let alone dance or take off your shirt,” Harrison said.  “It’s just immaturity.  It’s not right.  He made a mistake and I’m sure he feels absolutely stupid about it at this point.  There’s a time and place for everything.”

Harrison also said he was “surprised” that veteran left tackle Matt Light also partied with his shirt off.

Everyone deals with defeat differently, and no one should expect the players from the losing team to sit on the floor and repeatedly turn the lamp on and off.  But if there’s a line, Gronkowski and Light may have crossed it.  And that could make for some awkward moments when the guys who were too distraught to party like it’s SB39 get together with the guys who decided to audition for the Chippendales.

    Win or Lose, We still Bose.

  2. dubaradhandi says: Feb 8, 2012 9:35 PM

    Is Gronki trying to get out of NE. He is being bad influenced by someone…his agent…or family member….or a friend. Something wrong he has to watch out.

  3. mr4thand1 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:35 PM

    At last check, Gronk is a GROWN A$$ MAN! Let him do what he hell he want to do, and you , Ridney, continue to make excuse after excuse as to why your Patriots lost!

  4. randygnyc says: Feb 8, 2012 9:36 PM

    They couldn’t care less, obviously. Actions speaks louder than words.

  5. outlawshark says: Feb 8, 2012 9:36 PM

    Maybe Gronk had a bet on the Giants…

  6. commandercornpone says: Feb 8, 2012 9:37 PM

    how gauche. they didnt invite vince young.

  7. rcampore says: Feb 8, 2012 9:37 PM

    I was more surprised at how much he could jump around on the dance floor with that bum ankle.

    On another note, that white man really can’t dance.

  8. hooterdawg says: Feb 8, 2012 9:37 PM

    Before the Superbowl was played, Harrison picked Eli Manning as his clutch QB in the 4th Q over Brady. He even bragged about it after the Pats lost. How’s that for being disrespectful to his Pats? It seems to me that the Pats team should distance themselves from this loose canon.

  9. detroitcityryda says: Feb 8, 2012 9:39 PM

    Maybe mr.harrison He didn’t want to feel all f up so prolly got really hammered did a couple of lines from a girl’s two friends like on any given Sunday and went all out probably didn’t even know he played at Super Bowl after that ,just maybe .

  10. hooterdawg says: Feb 8, 2012 9:40 PM

    “Is Gronki trying to get out of NE. He is being bad influenced by someone…his agent…or family member….or a friend.”

    You left out his porn star. He wasn’t wearing his shirt because she was.

  11. ttommytom says: Feb 8, 2012 9:42 PM

    If it was an all male tequila party…wait…dream team mix-up…

  12. howmanyringsyourteamgot says: Feb 8, 2012 9:43 PM

    Rodney please shut your mouth, with all the steroids he took I’m pretty sure he ripped his shirt off plenty of times

  13. eastcoastv says: Feb 8, 2012 9:43 PM

    Harrison should keep his thoughts to himself. Does anyone really care what he thinks?

    They just lost the biggest game of their lives – maybe they needed to blow off some steam.

    Jeezzzzz

  14. mcs040 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:44 PM

    Really Rodney Harrison, your turning into Brandon Jacobs now. Chiming in on everything. See what the media does to people! He had a great season and made it to the biggest game of the NFL. I would say that’s a big accomplishment and he can party anyway he wants to. At least he has fun. Sounds like your a sore loser that can’t get over a loss.

  15. tombradyallday says: Feb 8, 2012 9:45 PM

    rodney take a stroll in the year 2012. new generation of young players. it was the superbowl not a deathmatch

  16. nepatriots128154 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:45 PM

    I really didn’t have a problem with it. I know for a fact that Gronk put 110% into this season. He was a beast day in and day out, and Light has proven to be a veteran who to had a very good year and put in 100%. They both obviously care, and if partying with the rest of his Gronk bros helped Gronkowski and Light deal with losing I don’t really care.

    Now if a bum like Ocho had been partying that would be different.

  17. eaglesfan94 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:45 PM

    You know what Rodney? Everyone deals with things differently. Going out and partying may not be such a bad thing. I’m sure that Gronk is just as competitive as anyone and felt just as bad over the loss as anyone else on the team. It’s just that he decided to go out and have fun to get his mind off the game rather than sit around and sulk. What’s so bad about that?

  18. mshinson says: Feb 8, 2012 9:46 PM

    bulletin board material.

  19. cmb79 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:46 PM

    It was absolutely shocking to me to see that. If you’re a professional athlete and you just lost a championship, partying would be the LAST thing you should be thinking of.

    Makes me wonder if the guy even cares. If he were on my team, it would give me pause.

  20. dte421 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:46 PM

    It’s always funny to me when insanely hardcore fans realize that they care more about wins and losses than 75% of the players. Sure, these guys care, but you lose, you lose. It’s a job; just because you’re under a magnifying glass that most of us could never imagine doesn’t make it any less of a job. How many of you have had a bad day at work, gone out, blown off some steam, and gotten a little out of control? It doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about losing – it means he wasn’t killing himself over it.

  21. iamnotoleanderson says: Feb 8, 2012 9:48 PM

    Didn’t anyone explain to Gronkowski that public penance must be paid for the grave sin of losing a professional sports event? How dare he?! (Oy, the things the press and fans care about…)

    Professional football games are serious business, and anyone who ever loses one should never know happiness again. Nothing short of a public stoning will be sufficient punishment for such an awful, awful, sin.

    (Oy, the things the press and fans get worked up about…)

  22. rcali says: Feb 8, 2012 9:48 PM

    I really liked that dance move he calls “Jump up an inch and watch the defender intercept the ball.” It looked a bit rehearshed though.

  23. dtob79 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:48 PM

    Kind of telling that Brady couldn’t move from his locker for 30 minutes after the game, but Gronk couldn’t wait to go out dancing. I’d rather have players who react like Brady did on my team, personally.

  24. knicks4life says: Feb 8, 2012 9:48 PM

    He doesn’t wanna be a pat leave him alone lol

  25. win1soon says: Feb 8, 2012 9:49 PM

    Rodney can you get over it, your career is over, I really don’t care what you and Bruschi would have done. I know he is using his time as an analyst to get face time and to parlay that into a better chance of getting into the HOF…but it is getting old!

  26. drewsg says: Feb 8, 2012 9:49 PM

    He played with a high ankle sprain, ALMOST made a play on the hail mary that could’ve won the game. Leave the man alone

  27. unclenasty says: Feb 8, 2012 9:51 PM

    Last time I checked hooterdawg Harrison worked for NBC not the Pats. As much as I couldn’t stand him as a player I respect him for being honest and doing his job. Many former players refuse to call out current ones when they become commentators. And obviously he knew to pick Eli and the Giants because they OWN the Pats.

  28. moerawn says: Feb 8, 2012 9:51 PM

    Checks come on Tuesday, win or lose. That’s the attitude of many pro players. And almost ALL the Cowboys, apparently.

  29. saywhatman says: Feb 8, 2012 9:52 PM

    how is “being yourself” wrong.
    i hate when people use “xxx wouldn’t have done that” to justify their comment. well that’s why his name is Gronk and not (insert name here)

    maybe he should have got drunk and killed someone on the highway

  30. skinsfantom says: Feb 8, 2012 9:53 PM

    can only relate as a fan,but, i know when my skins lose(please hold infantile jokes), i don’t want to talk to anybody ’till thursday,maybe. seriously. that may be sick but thats how i feel. i cannot even fathom gronks behavior, and he seemed like an ok dude prior, even came across as mature for his age. possibly picking up a check tues. for 360 k has something to do with it, another thing i couldn’t grasp at 85k myself. (thats a year-not every month). oh well, back to work,HAIL!!!

  31. dondada10 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:53 PM

    Guy let off some steam with some booze. Turns out he is human, after all.

  32. steelerhypocrite says: Feb 8, 2012 9:53 PM

    Gronk’s career is going to mimic Dolph Lungren’s…mainly because he looks like him. So, expect 3-4 really good/great years, then it’ll be over. Don’t argue this one, I did the calculations, it all works out. He’ll even marry some skank that ends up with Flavor Flav…

  33. tim1999 says: Feb 8, 2012 9:58 PM

    Matt Light is a 30+ yr old father of 3 and was doing exactly what 22 yr old single guy Gronk was doing (shirt off, dancing on stage and drinking) but “bad man” Rodney doesn’t call out his former teammate does he?? No he goes after the young guy.
    What a phony hypocrite Rodney Harrison is. Must be the HGH withdrawal.

  34. tonyinmd says: Feb 8, 2012 9:58 PM

    If I were a Pats player or fan, I’d have more of an issue of watching him dance like that after all the BS about how bad his ankle was after the Ravens game. There are Pats fans who are hanging their hats on the fact that Gonk’s injury was a game changer, only to watch the guy dancing as if nothing were wrong with his ankle.

    Who cares about his shirt being off?

  35. citizenstrange says: Feb 8, 2012 9:59 PM

    How is the dirtiest NFL player of ALL TIME somehow a respected commentator now? Seriously?

    Go hit somebody in the knees while they’re stood up. That’s your bailiwick.

  36. gcsuk says: Feb 8, 2012 9:59 PM

    Thanks for saving your ankle for when it REALLY mattered, Gronk!

    Signed,

    Giants fans everywhere (now get back to partying with your porno chicks)

  37. dubaradhandi says: Feb 8, 2012 9:59 PM

    Pats are all set to rock next year too. Needs are very less on both sides and easy to fix. See ya in SB once again.

  38. giantenemybird says: Feb 8, 2012 10:00 PM

    Yes. Shame on Gronk for having a good time with his friends and coworkers on the final day that they’ll all be at the same place before free agency and retirements take place.

    I know nothing makes me happier than sitting around by myself after a bad day. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to take their mind off of things. What was he thinking?

  39. thebrownswillalwaysloose says: Feb 8, 2012 10:01 PM

    Who made this clown the minister of right and wrong? For a dirty player who used steroids, Harrison sure talks some noise. In fact, It’s pretty pathetic this guy even has that position, seeing how he’s not even objective and an obvious cheater? Always patriots this, and patriots lost cause off that! Maybe tom tom and his babe wife let him be #3 man on the gimps night off? You know he catches tommy’s back, tom catches his ;)

  40. abninf says: Feb 8, 2012 10:02 PM

    Yeah that’s pretty weak. I agree with Harrison.

  41. joemac1114 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:02 PM

    Yes, he should hang his head and hide until the next game. Give me a break, these guys are just people and most of them need to blow off steam. Some fans need to appreciate that for some of these guys this is just a paycheck. They may have exceptional talent, but it doesn’t mean the love the game or the team without the cash that flows from the team.

  42. edelmanfanclub says: Feb 8, 2012 10:02 PM

    They lost, it’s over. Im sure he’s pissed they lost, but no point in sitting around when you can Party!!!

  43. hookem6903 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:03 PM

    How old is Gronk? 22? Seriously, settle down. People act like this dude is GLAD they lost. He’s a young guy and wants to go have fun, it probably helps him get his mind off the loss. He’s not just going to sulk all day every day.

  44. tjacks7 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:04 PM

    Dude, he played in the game. He said he was fine. The pats let him play. They lost. He took it like a man and moved on. No story here.

  45. khuxford says: Feb 8, 2012 10:04 PM

    How is being able to avoid sulking after a big loss a sign of immaturity? How is trying to enjoy yourself if you’re not absolutely devastated by a big loss a sign of immaturity? How is being able to keep things in perspective and realize that you and your teammates had a great season to be proud of (as a Jets fan, I just puked a little in my mouth typing that) a sign of immaturity?

    If I’m a Gronk fan, I rip the page out of the dictionary that has IMMATURITY on it and send it to Harrison. Because, you know, Gronk’s probably too mature to do that himself.

  46. 1phd says: Feb 8, 2012 10:04 PM

    Yo Rodney! You are taking yourself WAY too seriously. Get a life and understand that most people other than the people foolish enough to hire you, don’t really care what you think.

  47. bosfaninva says: Feb 8, 2012 10:04 PM

    Oh the humanity! A 22-year-old guy goes dancing. Was that before or after he helped cover up a murder, or murdered his pregnant wife, or ran a guy down in the street, or engaged in massive drug deals, or forced himself on young women, or shot himself in the leg, or led a dogfighting ring…oh wait….

    And remember, this is Rodney Harrison, who is still living down his failure to pry a football from the hand (not hands) of a third-rate JAG who had it pinned against his helmet, and is now blaming his failure on Asante Samuel.

  48. metalhead65 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:05 PM

    what is the big deal? they lost the game and the season is over so what damage will that do to the team? you didn’t sit in your room and cry,you are not a team player! again he owes nobody an explanation he is a grown man and can do what he wants without team approval since the season ended with that loss.

  49. kylehealy says: Feb 8, 2012 10:05 PM

    If you take what you do seriously and you work your butt off for months trying to get to the ultimate goal; winning the Super Bowl, only to play, have a minimal effect, and lose, you are NOT out partying and dancing like a jacka$$ a couple hours later. Gronkowski should be devastated. DUDE, YOU JUST LOST THE SUPER BOWL. He embarrassed himself.

  50. vikescry1 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:05 PM

    there’s only 1 winner every year. but losing any game let alone the superbowl, i can’t imagine dancing around being happy? now i haven’t ever played in a superbowl or an nfl game, like most of us but i think i’d be a bit upset. just sayin…

  51. djlexluger says: Feb 8, 2012 10:05 PM

    More former Patriots telling current Patriots what to do……

  52. elmoron says: Feb 8, 2012 10:05 PM

    C’mon, it’s Boston. At least in wasn’t beer and chicken wings in the locker room.

  53. melikefootball says: Feb 8, 2012 10:06 PM

    Players only care about one thing CHAMPIONSHIPS..right. Give me the money and party time. Although Harrison , he does care…about more air time.

  54. driftw00d says: Feb 8, 2012 10:07 PM

    Harrison let Tyree hold the football against his helmet in the biggest moment of his career. I don’t think he has any chance of “ringing” Gronkowski’s head.

  55. roberts09 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:09 PM

    It’s always Tedy Bruschi and Rodney Harrison running their mouths off about the patriot way and calling out CURRENT PLAYERS! who cares what this grown man does after work. He didn’t commit a crime. He wasn’t getting payed by the patriots at the time. Leave the guy alone. After all the best seasons these two ever had were during the “spygate” era.

  56. charliegirl1 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:11 PM

    Matt Light is a good guy and established veteran. Can’t think of another reason why he’s somehow immune from criticism. Light may retire soon and Gronkowski played with serious pain. I think they both have earned the right to deal with loss as they see fit.
    ‘Parade my kids for PR’ Bruschi and ‘cheap-shot’ Harrison? Can’t think of two more disingenuous guys in the history of the league. Please, just go away

  57. makhan250 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:16 PM

    Harrison is just jealous he doesn’t look as good with his shirt off.

  58. mikeeg says: Feb 8, 2012 10:17 PM

    Shut up, Harrison

  59. goodguyjohn says: Feb 8, 2012 10:19 PM

    The reality is this – Fans care WAY more about these games than some of the players do (not all). Gronkowski had a huge year (thanks to PED’s), is making millions and is young and stupid. This is a receipe for mischief.

    I can assure you from personal experience that a lot of the players aren’t really bothered by losing because they’re making FAT bank either way. It’s just a job to them.

    A few years back, a friend of mine cooked meals for a west coast NFL team. He fed them dinner a few times a week at the team facility – a big catered dinner every week during the season. I went with him on several occasions and was amazed at how light hearted and jovial the team was two days after a heartbreaking loss. These guys were grab assin’, jokin’, laughin – you would have thought they were high schoolers. And they almost are. Most of these guys are 25 year old multi millionaires. They just don’t care as much as the average fan

  60. tfbuckfutter says: Feb 8, 2012 10:19 PM

    It’s. A. Game.

    Jesus people. It’s not life and death. It has absolutely no meaning whatsoever in the real world.

    Are you supposed to sit in a dark room gently weeping after losing A GAME?

  61. jetfan28 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:20 PM

    I’m so sick of This clown and Bruschi acting as if they defined professionalism and their way is the only way. This is the same clown who was consistently known as the dirtiest player and was suspended for steroids. The guys he named are champs for 2 reasons, Brady and The Hoodie. They are far too preachy for me.

    How can we tell this guy how to handle loss? If a man is dumped by his girl and he runs out to blow off steam, is he any less devastated than the guy who crawls in the bed all night?

  62. vincentbojackson says: Feb 8, 2012 10:20 PM

    Nobody ever confused Gronk with Albert Einstein. If you’ve ever heard the guy speak you know that elevator doesn’t stop on all floors.

  63. lbijake says: Feb 8, 2012 10:21 PM

    If Rodney played pass defense, there would be one Super Bowl loss he wouldn’t have to worry about. Rodney also said that if he was there, some heads would get bonked. Personally, I would put my money an the Gronk-meister over Rodney the Mouth.

  64. thatdudewiththemarauder says: Feb 8, 2012 10:22 PM

    Who cares?? He is grown and he can do whatever he wants. I so tired of these old Pats talking about what they would do and how they did it. Dude is not a kid and if you seen him doing whatever, you would have not done anything. GRONK like dance! (caveman voice)

  65. randygnyc says: Feb 8, 2012 10:22 PM

    He picked manning if a 4th quarter comeback was the situation, but picked the pats to win the game.

  66. t16rich says: Feb 8, 2012 10:23 PM

    hooterdawg says:Feb 8, 2012 9:37 PM

    Before the Superbowl was played, Harrison picked Eli Manning as his clutch QB in the 4th Q over Brady. He even bragged about it after the Pats lost. How’s that for being disrespectful to his Pats? It seems to me that the Pats team should distance themselves from this loose canon.

    Newsflash!!! Harrison is employed by NBC to be an analyst. Not by the Patriots to pump their egos up. So because he speaks the truth he is disrespecting his old team? You must have not wiped the tears from your eyes to see that Eli is a better 4th qtr QB than Tom. 2 Superbowl meetings tell us that. How is stating an opinion, (an obviously correct one at that) being disrespectful? It’s good to see Gronks ankle was ready for that Monday night dance party after the superbowl.

  67. trbowman says: Feb 8, 2012 10:23 PM

    “Was Rob Gronkowski wrong to dance shirtless after Super Bowl loss?”

    Questions I never thought I’d hear for 500, Alex.

  68. db105 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:23 PM

    Gronk is entitled to do whatever he wants. It’s not advisible to party in public right after a SB loss. He openned the door for criticism. Certainly can’t help in his next contract negotiations.

  69. 7pints says: Feb 8, 2012 10:24 PM

    Hold up. You need to qualify the poll question with extra choices. It’s not just should he or should he had not danced after losing the Super Bowl. For the record I totally concur with Harrison, you don’t celebrate after losing the game of all games. But more choices should have been added to the poll such as:

    1. Did he look like the awkward kid at the middle school social?
    2. Does he have the mental capacity to have long term success in the NFL?

    Just food for thought. I found that video to be disturbing for many reasons, but the fact that he looked like a bizarre adolescent in a giant body really kind of freaked me out.

  70. ozz2012 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:24 PM

    What is he supposed to do, sit and wallow in misery and defeat? Man, eff that. I’d booze it up too.

    Lot of whining here for such a non-story. And I hate the Pats.

  71. trbowman says: Feb 8, 2012 10:25 PM

    Rodney Harrison is correct, though.

    Statements I never thought I’d make for 1,000, Alex.

    I’m really breaking new territory

  72. mattyk72 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:25 PM

    Douche alert on the dance floor.

  73. latenightroach says: Feb 8, 2012 10:26 PM

    So I guess they’re supposed to sit around and sulk? Give me a break.

    These guys have just finished playing football since last September. If they want to enjoy themselves to celebrate the season being over, then so be it. They deserve to have some fun with a hangover & don’t need former teammates passing judgement and acting all goody two shoes.

    I can’t believe anyone would get butthurt over this.

  74. blackfootkiller says: Feb 8, 2012 10:27 PM

    Typical of this generation…. It’s all about me! Who cares if we accomplished the goal, I’ma have fun cause it’s all about me…I have a 24 year old son that has never had a full time job, and is living with his grandmother…He quit his part time job, cause he ‘didn’t like it’…I see blood spurting from the orifice where his head used to be. Disgusting! Accomplish nothing, and acted like an ass, that’s all this younger generation brings to the table.

  75. 4512dawg4512 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:27 PM

    For the two weeks before the super bowl. Topic 1- Gronkowski, how is his ankle, and will he be able to play?………. Topic 2- Ochocinco, will he be the “X” factor in the big game? Analysts bit hard on both of those and as expected they were both non-factors. And I have no rooting interest in Gronk but if he hits the dance floor and loses the shirt, Im gonna put my shirt back on and go nurse on my beer at my table

  76. upperdecker19 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:28 PM

    Lighten up Rodney, he’s just a big fan of the Chris Farley/Pat Swayze Chippendales skit from SNL

  77. thenightmancometh says: Feb 8, 2012 10:29 PM

    But Gronk actually played in the Super Bowl with the high ankle sprain, so dancing on it should be a non-issue. I would understand criticizing him if he sat out, but now Harrison is just running his mouth so he doesn’t slip into more obscurity.

    /can’t believe I just defended a Patriot.

  78. cunninglinguist69 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:30 PM

    As long as Gronkowski doesn’t drive drunk or pull a Ben Rothlisberger, I don’t think it’s THAT big a deal that a 22 year-old man (who is already well-known as a happy-go-lucky individual who occasionally parties with porn stars), dances with his shirt off at a post Superbowl party!… Maybe it’s just me…

  79. jamesx27 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:30 PM

    C’mon. It was the end of a NINETEEN game season for them. Dude most likely did his best in the SB, they came close, it’s frustrating but hey, move on. Season’s over. Let them remove themselves from the violence and emotion of the game and let loose alittle. Impudent Harrison’s cheap old self is just trying to remain relevant. He can name drop and make empty threats all day, but he wasn’t there for a reason.

  80. vols84 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:30 PM

    It was great to re-live the David Tyree catch over and over with Harrison in the studio during the Super Bowl. Does anyone else get tired of hearing Harrison and Bruschi?

  81. binarybulge says: Feb 8, 2012 10:31 PM

    Harrison needs to keep his nose out of it. It’s not his business how other players enjoy their time. It’s not Rob’s fault Harrison was so emotionally volatile as a player that he couldn’t suck it up and enjoy one of the last moments of the long season with his teammates. I’m sure Gronk cares just as much as any of the other players that they lost.

  82. ynot1381 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:32 PM

    Maybe he was trying to drown his sorrows by drinking himself into a stupor.

    His team lost a game they could have won, he was injured and ineffective, and he was probably upset.

    You get drunk enough, of course you are going to dance!

  83. imatelldatroof says: Feb 8, 2012 10:33 PM

    What do you expect from a despicable team – with despicable fans – and a despicable coach. You expect despicable acts.

  84. adantsa says: Feb 8, 2012 10:34 PM

    Last time I checked, it was the off season. He had a record setting year, his team won the AFC Championship and the Patriots are primed to make another run over the next few years. Maybe he cares more about enjoying his life, which football seems to be a major part of. I don’t understand why he’s be better off crying in the corner until training camp. Let the guy live.

  85. nickwillis99 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:35 PM

    I’ve heard Harrison talk about “respecting” the Patriots uniform…but atleast Gronk has never been busted taking steroids. It’s not like Gronkowski could go jogging to burn off the frustration of a loss, either.

  86. nyjalleffingday says: Feb 8, 2012 10:35 PM

    “Grr! Stop coping with upsetting events differently from the way I cope with upsetting events!”

  87. fastwillie39 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:35 PM

    Harrison is old news, old bitter ex player. I actually feel bad, he seems angry- too many hits, steroids messing with his common sense?

  88. kelvinmchale says: Feb 8, 2012 10:37 PM

    Why was there even a Patriot after party? Get on the plane and go home. And shame on you Matt Light and your big hairy belly.

  89. Deb says: Feb 8, 2012 10:38 PM

    They have a right to handle the Super Bowl loss any way they want.

    But if I were a Pats fan, it would tick me off big-time.

  90. dwntwnbadboy19 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:38 PM

    Why to people even care? Its too bad that the media/s&*t talking players/s&*t talking wives are making what was such a good game look like it was played by a bunch of dumb 14 year old idiots. Giants won, Patriots lost(I am a fan of neither) end of story.

    Team party Rodney…why don’t you start with Little Bill and ask why the hell he was throwing a party after his team lost.

    Did they also spray champagne on each other in the locker room because it was already there and paid for?

  94. phadedwun says: Feb 8, 2012 10:44 PM

    I am not sure if I ever seen a single story for an athlete blown so out of proportion.

    Okay – that is probably a lie.

    But still, this entire thing is getting pretty blown out of proportion.

    Some people just want to mourn by drinking, dancing and stripping.

    Is that really so wrong?

  96. vonmiller58 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:47 PM

  97. craigmaitland says: Feb 8, 2012 10:51 PM

    Harrison is allowed to call out Gronk. They share the same roids dealer.

  98. jpb12 says: Feb 8, 2012 10:53 PM

    Bruschi and McGinest aint walking thru the door any time soon Rod.

    Gronk’s team mates love the guy. Kid’s 22 years old. At a team function.

    He plays hard and party’s hard.

    Seems like the issue here is the lifestyle Gronk has. Rodney’s religion doesn’t approve.

  99. Spencer says: Feb 8, 2012 10:56 PM

    Let this be a lesson to all fans: most of the players don’t care as much as you do. Keep your perspective.

    Bell rung, yeah right. Shut up Harrison.

  102. nomoreseasontix says: Feb 8, 2012 11:02 PM

    Harrison, get over yourself. It was AFTER the game. Not before. I doubt his dancing had a bearing on the outcome of the game.
    Are you suggesting that if he curled up in a ball on the floor it might have translated into a New England win?

    The game was over…. history. Nothing he did or didn’t do afterward has anything to do with the game.

  103. briang123 says: Feb 8, 2012 11:03 PM

    I laugh at how guys like Rodney Harrison become some sort of moral authority once people starting forgetting how big of scumbags they were when they played. Ray Lewis will be the next one all over our TV, joining the likes of Harrison and Michael Irvin.

  104. jdmcmill says: Feb 8, 2012 11:03 PM

  105. ballou0254 says: Feb 8, 2012 11:04 PM

  106. raidersfreak says: Feb 8, 2012 11:13 PM

    Besides that anyone know why the chargers cut Harrison in 2002. I remember how tough he was against Tim brown all those years. Great rivalry between the 2

  107. mogogo1 says: Feb 8, 2012 11:15 PM

    I’d find it much easier to come down hard on Gronkowski if it were anybody but Harrison calling him out. It’s just getting so very old to hear from Harrison and all the the other ex-Pats judging the current players.

    Rather than cheering on the current team, you get the vibe that Harrison relishes them coming up short just so he can feel superior to them and dish out some more criticism about how much better they were in the old days.

  108. eagles512 says: Feb 8, 2012 11:15 PM

    Gronkowski doesn’t come across as bright and this proves it.

  109. foosballisthedevil says: Feb 8, 2012 11:16 PM

    How the hell was he supposed to contribute more when Giselle’s husband wouldn’t throw him the damn ball. He can’t throw it AND catch it!

    It’s not like he single-handedly lost the game like a loud-mouth dirty player who blew the opportunity to lay out a backup tight end four years ago.

  110. armchairqb says: Feb 8, 2012 11:17 PM

    GRONK MODE!

  111. seeptermean says: Feb 8, 2012 11:18 PM

    Do you realize how hard he worked to be ready to go for that game. Bottom line is that he played injured, he left it all on the field. I am a Giants fan and I think anyone criticizing this guy for partying after the end of a 6 month long season is an idiot. It doesn’t mean he didn’t try hard in the game, all it means is that he’s moved on and so should the rest of you, it’s only a game.

  112. christhefish says: Feb 8, 2012 11:32 PM

    Hey. The season was over. OVER. When Gronk was WORKING, we heard nothing about partying. When the season is OVER a guy with the stats that this guy had can party as hard as he likes IMHO. He EARNED that right. Sheesh…

  113. intrafinesse says: Feb 8, 2012 11:33 PM

    The Season is OVER.
    Gronk worked hard the entire season, now he gets a chance to relax. He was under a lot of pressure.
    Have a great time, just don’t do anything stupid.

    Like most people who comment on sports in ANY MEDIUM, Rodney is just projecting his own sensibilities and persona on to somebody and reacting to that. Gronkowski can party like anybody else in the offseason. He owes his team a healthy and incarceration-free offseason, that’s it.

  116. hannahsdaddy says: Feb 8, 2012 11:43 PM

    At this point, does anyone give a crap what Rodney’s opinion is?

    I have an opinion . . . if Rodney WAS at the club, and said anything to Gronk, we’d be reading an article about how Rodney got his a$$ beat.

  117. tedmurph says: Feb 9, 2012 12:00 AM

    Time for Harrison to realize he’s retired. He’s not on the team anymore.

  118. 69finfan says: Feb 9, 2012 12:05 AM

    I think Gronk was just taking it day by day, rehabing after a tough loss trying to get stronger day by day, one day at a time, day by day. Gronk out!

  119. bnwillard says: Feb 9, 2012 12:22 AM

    He doesnt even dance in the end zone. Somethings wrong with this guy

  123. youallrfools says: Feb 9, 2012 12:51 AM

    Who cares.

    Seriously.

    Its the man’s job. He partied the first night of a couple month break. I suppose Pats fans think he should be crying like they are. Get a grip.

    Another example of how much more seriously rubes take this than the athletes themselves.

  124. brewcrewfan54 says: Feb 9, 2012 1:10 AM

    Get over yourself Rodney. They lost. Should he have gone into a basement and sat in the dark for a week? He probably drank and had some fun. Not his fault some jabroni decided to put it on the internet. Life goes on. The party was going to go on win or lose so at least he helped keep the mood upbeat.

  125. coseybedaman says: Feb 9, 2012 1:14 AM

    The Pats offense was lost without Gronk, and most who watched the game can tell that was a huge reason. I am sure that was very frustrating for him. Who cares if he loosens up after the loss. Not to mention I’d put my money on Gronkowski kicking the hell out of any of those old Patriots fogies.

    Where was your porn star girlfriend?

  128. stlrams39 says: Feb 9, 2012 1:37 AM

    “I was more surprised at how much he could jump around on the dance floor with that bum ankle.

    On another note, that white man really can’t dance.”

    He did play in the Superbowl with that bum ankle. I’m pretty sure that’s harder than dancing

  129. patsfiend says: Feb 9, 2012 1:39 AM

    I’m sure everyone’s sick of Pats homer Rodney, but he’s right. I wish he, Willie, or Bruschi were on the team to straighten these guys out, but they are not.

    In Gronk’s defense… he was obviously hammered (and I doubt he could feel the ankle), and Kraft spent a lot of cash for that party… so I assume someone had to go to it.

    He should have just let the Giants in there to party. They could have wrecked that party, too.

  130. pongonfl says: Feb 9, 2012 1:49 AM

    You think harrison would have more trouble with hoodie for having the party or who ever the Filmed that party. Who would have that technology?

    I think the pats are just accustomed to losing to mannings.

    There hasn’t been a party in Patriots land since 2004! or when ever the last SB was.

  131. steveschwarz21 says: Feb 9, 2012 1:49 AM

    In the old days before players were millionaires they played each and then went out for beers after the game. So what’s wrong with this? Nothing.

    Harrison should shut up if for no other reason than the fact that Gronk would stop him out.

  132. h2ftw says: Feb 9, 2012 1:56 AM

    C’mon man. Once LMFAO came on, Gronk couldn’t help himself…

  133. truthhammer says: Feb 9, 2012 1:58 AM

    It’s really just a question if you’re the kind of person who has to make yourself feel miserable about setbacks to motivate yourself to work harder for your goals.

    The dude has probably 8-9 weeks before he can even train 100% again, so it’s not like he should have been running hill sprints that night.

  134. hedleykow says: Feb 9, 2012 2:20 AM

    Think what could have happened if the Patriots had won. Gronk could have wound up in an elevator Monday morning strapped to a baby named Carlos.

  135. 6thsense79 says: Feb 9, 2012 3:26 AM

    blackfootkiller says:Feb 8, 2012 10:27 PM

    Typical of this generation…. It’s all about me! Who cares if we accomplished the goal, I’ma have fun cause it’s all about me…I have a 24 year old son that has never had a full time job, and is living with his grandmother…He quit his part time job, cause he ‘didn’t like it’…I see blood spurting from the orifice where his head used to be. Disgusting! Accomplish nothing, and acted like an ass, that’s all this younger generation brings to the table.
    ——————————-

    Right,

    Because Gronk playing in the SuperBowl on a high ankle sprain that would have sidelined any player just shows how selfish and out of touch this generation is.

    Hey gramps if you have a problem with how you raised your son take it out with him and not an entire generation.

    If Gronk was partying like this before the Superbowl I can see the outrage but after?? Really people. Get a life.

  136. lawyermalloy says: Feb 9, 2012 4:37 AM

    I say leave the guy alone. He just finished a 19 game season, he probably had a lot of friends come in for the game and he chose to blow off some steam

  137. lookatthefarside says: Feb 9, 2012 4:37 AM

    I’m more likely to tie one on after a bad day at work than after a good day.

    The Pats had a bad day at work. That’s the perfect time to go blow off some steam. Better than sitting around moping about it.

  139. texline1 says: Feb 9, 2012 6:23 AM

    None of you guys ever got drunk and partied after a bad day at work? It’s a job. What he does after he clocks out is none of anybody’s business as long as nobody was hurt. The last I checked, having fun was not against the rules of the cba, although they may include it in the next one the way things are going.

    the problem isn’t that he went out dancing and partying its that he went out dancing and partying after having the most famous injured leg in sports for two straight weeks.

    when you see someone jumping around after the game the way he was, questions arise.

  144. giants56 says: Feb 9, 2012 7:51 AM

    Since this was a Pats only party, I want to know who was pissed enough to release this video? Obviously Gronk and Lights partying didn’t sit well with someone affiliated with the organization. I’m sure BB had a little talk them both about how poorly it reflects on the team. Even Giselle was pissed after the loss.
    Their actions are what separates Brady and Welker type players from the Dez, Desean, and Shockey’s of the world.

  145. ampats says: Feb 9, 2012 7:53 AM

    Being a Pats homer and a big Rodney fan, I couldn’t disagree more.

    Guess what, no Gronk /Welker Pats don’t make the playoffs. I’m sure Gronk was feeling no pain. He’s 22 and had a great season where he busted his ass since August. Everyone deals with losses in their life different ways.

  146. nflenthusiast says: Feb 9, 2012 7:57 AM

    Love the Boston sports meltdowns (including red sox here).

    Complete laughingstock of baseball for 80 years and football for 40 years. Then you win a few rings and immediately forget your teams sucked for decades and became entitled brats. First time they really blow it in years and you want to run them out of town now. Massachusetts seems like the most insecure/provincial place.

    Go do some PEDs and cheat some more, Rodney.

  147. joe6606 says: Feb 9, 2012 7:59 AM

    If I were a Pats fan, I’d be outraged.

    His hurt ankle had a huge impact on the ineffectiveness of the Pats offense. If he had just been drinking himself into a stupor..I have no problem with that. To see him dancing around is a slap in the face.

    Really Rodney Harrison, your turning into Brandon Jacobs now. Chiming in on everything. See what the media does to people! He had a great season and made it to the biggest game of the NFL. I would say that’s a big accomplishment and he can party anyway he wants to. At least he has fun. Sounds like your a sore loser that can’t get over a loss.
    ===========================

    Harrison is sounding like a bunch of old ladies gossiping on a park bench. The old school (Jim Brown, Czonka, Tatum, Butkus) wouldn’t even address the issue – its done….that just carries over into next season….

  149. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Feb 9, 2012 8:04 AM

    Rodney is one of my favorite all time Patriots, but I have to disagree with him here. Gronk is a star who was dealt a crappy hand heading into the Super Bowl. He did everything he could to help the team win that game and I could care less if he wants to go out and blow off some steam at the team after party. However, I am not sure why any man feels the need to dance around with his shirt off at a party or club, especially not a player like Casey Hampton. My eyes are still burning. If I were Rodney, I think I would want an explanation for that, more than for partying in general.

  150. rjg427 says: Feb 9, 2012 8:04 AM

    why do i feel like everyone is missing the bigger picture here..he was obviously used as decoy in the game with a “bum ankle” but I guess the agony of defeat caused him to heal quite fast, cuz in that video he was jumpin’ around on that ankle like there was no such injury..to the point that i really didnt even believe that that was him in the video

  151. rjg427 says: Feb 9, 2012 8:10 AM

    At least he seemed to be jumpin higher than Chase Blackburn can at the club…just sayin..

  152. TheDPR says: Feb 9, 2012 8:19 AM

    Rodney chill out! Anything after the game doesn’t matter… You hanging with St. Dungy too much. Things change, players change.

  156. thedudesnotin says: Feb 9, 2012 8:41 AM

    So, in the NFL if you have the last name Harrison, you don’t seem to get it.

    Forget the fact that yes the season is over after a grueling 19 weeks or so.

    Forget the fact they had just lost the Super Bowl.

    But do remember this may be his only trip to a Super Bowl in his career, and thus, he may as well take it all in, including the having a good time, just because, you know, he is human after all.

  157. redmanalishi says: Feb 9, 2012 8:42 AM

    Meh, I don’t know. I’m not a Pats fan, in fact I can’t stand them, but it is his life and he can go out for some drinks if he wants. Doing it in public where he can be critiqued? Perhaps not smart, but still his choice. NFL players are human beings and they don’t necessarily have to live up to Harrison’s standards of grief and mourning.

    I suppose Rodney expects Brady to go home and say to Gisele, “Sorry honey, that’s a nice offer, but I really shouldn’t crawl into bed with you for comfort on this worst day of my life. I’m going to sleep on the sofa as penance. The team and I will decide when I’m deserving of love.”

  158. baron30 says: Feb 9, 2012 8:45 AM

    I dont know about you guys but when i was 22 (and to some extent now) when something bad (or good for that matter) happened it was first instinct to get straight up blacked out and party. Im assuming Gronk-Nation is just like most 22 yr old (sans millions of dollars and the single greatest season by a TE ever).

    Gronk is an adult an can go out and make a fool of himself all he wants to. After you’ve had enough beer and liquor an sort of pain will go away.

    I’m sure he wasn’t at this party alone, if he was drinking too much and acting like an idiot then one of his people should have settled him down.

    On the other hand, if he was just dancing at a party….who the hell cares? It’s a party.

  161. lolb23 says: Feb 9, 2012 9:04 AM

(thats a year-not every month). oh well, back to work,HAIL!!!
    ================================

    Wrong on so many levels I don’t know where to begin.

    First off, you really need to examine your life if it takes you four days to get over a loss by a team you root for.

    Second, you thought Gronk came across as mature before this? The dude acts like a goofball all of the time. His teammates do impressions of him, for god’s sake.

    And where does that comment about the 360k check come from? The Super Bowl losers share was I think $42k this year, and Gronkowski’s salary for the entire year was $405k.

  164. ihatetheeffingjets says: Feb 9, 2012 10:21 AM

    I don’t mind Harrison’s comments but including Seymour in his list of Patriots titans is a head scratcher. If I had to pick one prominent Patriot during those years who was along for the ride and way overrated as a “leader” I’d pick Seymour.

  165. The Prophet says: Feb 9, 2012 10:22 AM

    The only way I let Gronkowski off the hook is if he was crying while dancing with his shirt off.

  166. Steeler's Will says: Feb 9, 2012 10:22 AM

    Pats seem to be the top story even after the loss. It’s Gronk’s life, let him live it. Hopefully he makes smart decisions and choices about the rest of his time, because nothing good happens in a bar.

    Laughed heartily at the toolbags mentioning Rodney’s dirtiest player award from 2 decades ago. Try punching your pillow at night while you cry about how unfair life is.

  167. EJ says: Feb 9, 2012 10:23 AM

    If I were a New England Patriot, I’d be much more worried about Gronkowski dancing around after not catching that critical jump pass, than worry about how he chooses to display his emotions. I’d wonder if he really played his hardest. I mean what does Harrison want the guy to do, go home and hang himself from the closet clothes bar? Have a bunch of buddies beat him with bar soap filled tube socks? Call up Tom Brady and his foul mouthed wife and cry until the sun shines? Go to a friends house, stay up till 3AM watching Shrek the third while eating Whhheat thins and drinking Appletini’s? Not everybody expresses themselves like you Captain Rodney.

    Besides that anyone know why the chargers cut Harrison in 2002. I remember how tough he was against Tim brown all those years. Great rivalry between the 2
    –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
    He was hampered by injuries his last year there and Marty S didn’t think he could play anymore so they cut him. Marty later admitted he made a mistake.

    Much as I love Rodney, I do not agree with him in any way on this one. This was a Pats party and some guys didn’t want to go because they didn’t feel like partying and some did want to go and blow off steam and have some fun and either way, I respect their choices. It’s either ok for both or bad for both. Can’t excuse Light and dump on Gronkowski.

    I do think it would be interesting to hear what he thinks of Gisele calling out the Pats receiving corps in front of other teammates wives though.

    whats the big deal? he worked hard all season, made it to the super bowl, lost, but the season is over, and he let loose a little…so what

    Here’s the thing guys. Rodney was just trying to suggest that if an athlete is partying like its 1999 mere hours after a devastating loss, that gives the ‘wrong message’ to the fans who live and die with this team. If it ‘appears’ that Gronk ‘doesnt care’ why should you, as a fan, care as much?

    Some fans take these losses REALLY hard, there’s zero chance that every Pats fan was out partying a couple hours after the game. Makes you think he doesnt care that he lost and he’s just another selfish athlete who’s in this for the money and winning or losing means nothing.

    I don’t get it. What does any of this have to do with Peyton Manning?? If it is not about Peyton why is it here?

    Rodney says that if he or other classic Pats players were at that party, Gronk would have had his head rung.

    Wait…you’d be at the party, Rodney? But you wouldn’t be there to party? Just attending because the Pats threw it? So…it’s OK to show up to a party after the loss…just not to actually party at the party? Dumb ass.

    I get the mindset. We did the same thing when we lost our state soccer championship (I know, I know it’s not the Super Bowl). You have a party already planned (we weren’t returning the keg) and it goes down regardless. I doubt they were in a happy mindset. Just trying to forget and move on.

    I wonder how Bellichick feelss about the video. He can be a real stickler for how his players conduct themselves. Seems like a disciplinarian.

    Network should dump Harrison ! Then he could show us how to sulk correctly

    Rodney needs to chill. I wouldn’t worry about Gronk. Maybe Rodney hasn’t got over the fact that had he played better Defense the Pats win the first SuperBowl agaionst the Giants. Maybe if his buddy Asante Samuel makes the pic in his hands the Pats win or the other All-Pro Richard Seymour, if he finishes a sack we win. Don’t judge or be judged.
