Gronkowski raises eyebrows again

Rob Gronkowski AP

Whether he’s apologizing for lending his jersey to a porn star or dancing shirtless hours after losing the Super Bowl, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a tendency to make eyebrow-raising public appearances. And now we have another.

In an appearance at the University of Rhode Island on Thursday night, Gronkowski agreed to play the oh-so-hilarious “F, marry, kill” game. His choices were Betty White, Rex Ryan and Tim Tebow.

“I would ‘F’ Tebow, to take his virginity,” Gronkowski said.

I’m guessing Gronkowski would choose to marry Betty White and kill Rex Ryan, but that part wasn’t included in the video that’s making the rounds.

    Typical 23yr old’s response. Bahahahah, funny though.

  2. tomeffnbrady says: Apr 13, 2012 6:18 PM

    ooo i saw the video before i knew what game he was playin. now i don’t have problem with it…

  3. RavenzGunnerz says: Apr 13, 2012 6:18 PM

    Oh Rob,

    Keep em coming…

    As long as you don’t get any TD against my Ravens, we r cool.

  4. paulitik74 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:19 PM

    That’s just funny. I bet Tebow would let him too.

  5. lennydpocketqb says: Apr 13, 2012 6:19 PM

    Everything this dude does off the field makes me laugh. At least he isn’t killing anyone.

  6. flyerscup2010 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:19 PM

    So what? I give him more credit for being a good sport than discomfort over him broaching a societal taboo that was dropped on his lap. And I’m a Jets fan.

    Consider my eyebrows un-raised.

    That is Wes Welker like comic genius. Whoever does not like that joke is a blow hard.

  8. peytonsneck18 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:20 PM

    hes still a young man, what do u expect from him, we all were wild and done stupid things as a youngster, enjoy your youth while u can, before u start fleeing kids off your yard age

  9. danielcp0303 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:21 PM

    I wish I had been alive in the 60s or 70s, I would f and marry her, then have Robert Wagner kill her.

  10. ironhawk says: Apr 13, 2012 6:21 PM

    I love Gronk. No one should be offended because he was only talking to a specific audience, it’s not like the joke was meant for the general public.

  11. flyerscup2010 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:21 PM

    Plus, it’s an event at a college. Have college kids never heard of sex before? We need to protect their impressionable, innocent ears?

  12. randygnyc says: Apr 13, 2012 6:22 PM

    Obviously he’s seasoned in this field with Brady already.

  13. TheWizard says: Apr 13, 2012 6:23 PM

    Belichick wants you in his office in the morning, son.

  14. blacknole08 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:25 PM

    Gronk’s antics crack me up. He’s still young so he’s just living his life. And I don’t mind because he shows up on Sundays.

    It would be even funnier though if Tebow was playing this game. How uncomfortable would he be?

  15. jenniferxxx says: Apr 13, 2012 6:25 PM

    Maybe we just have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a jerk?

  16. shotgunn63 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:25 PM

    Love it!! LMAO!!!!

  17. jbpanthers says: Apr 13, 2012 6:26 PM

    He gets a pass for everything because he’s white. If this were Ochocinco Pats would have already cut him.

  18. thetwilightsown says: Apr 13, 2012 6:28 PM

    As a Raider fan, I can only hope this means horrible, devastating results for one of the dirtiest teams in the league. Sadly, it’s not going to matter at all and that dude is still a beast on the field.

    Is there any way we can turn this into less Tom Brady ball-washing by game announcers or the NFL Network? No? How about “punishing” him by sending him to us? Still no? Then… Who cares?

    Hilarious joke. God forbid we have a sense of humor in this league.

  22. akd1287 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:34 PM

    He’s a kid, relax.

  23. blmonroe12 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:35 PM

    It’s nice to know the guy has a sense of humor. At least he went along with the joke, and at least he didn’t try to justify Betty White.

  24. biasedhomer says: Apr 13, 2012 6:36 PM

    Who cares, it has already been proven Gronkowski is all brawn, no brain

  25. astrosfan75956 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:37 PM

    This is such a non issue.

  26. mistrezzrachael says: Apr 13, 2012 6:39 PM

    Gronk stays healthy and he may go down as greatest TE ever. Watching him pancake Suggs was awesome.

    Gronk is the Lady Gaga of NFL, his way of saying lighten up NFL…without hurting anyone.

    31 teams would kill for him on their roster.

  27. sitbackandwatch says: Apr 13, 2012 6:39 PM

    Put an asterisk by Pats superbowl wins… That comment is vile and he should be suspended for a year!

  28. tedmurph says: Apr 13, 2012 6:40 PM

    @jenniferxxx:
    Who’s the jerk? All this kid does is try to have a little 23yr old fun. No drugs, no 6 kids with 5 women, no holdouts, just havin’ a good time. Tries to play in the SB with a broken ankle. He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but let’s face it, neither are you.

  29. teddybayer123 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:42 PM

    Kinda pisses me off, no one even acknowledges that “F-Marry-Kill” is a Howard Stern bit. Of course, Jay Leno so blatantly rips off Howard that it’s become commonplace. (“Street-Talk”, anyone? Was “The Homeless Game” on Howard)

  30. blutri10 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:45 PM

    I don’t know what’s worse…his so called joke or you shmucks finding it funny.

  31. kegowhisky says: Apr 13, 2012 6:47 PM

    Anybody ask Tebow the same question, but substituring Gronkowski’s name for his own?

  32. drewsg says: Apr 13, 2012 6:49 PM

    I literally busted out laughing reading his response. Lighten up people!

  33. r8rh8r says: Apr 13, 2012 6:50 PM

    Do people still start responses with “As a Raiders fan” and expect that anyone will actually read any further?

    Make that 30 teams, but he would be a good #2 TE for the Saints.

  38. foosball11 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:57 PM

    Im not really too surprised at his choice, he is a patriot, after all.

  39. raiduhdude says: Apr 13, 2012 6:57 PM

    How is this not gay? Pretty funny though

  40. clemenza58 says: Apr 13, 2012 6:58 PM

    This guy seriously has something wrong with him. He may be young but he’s a little more weird than most normal 23 year olds.

  41. bigshadetree says: Apr 13, 2012 7:02 PM

    Not at all surprised that he chose tebow, with all those mens’s that were dancing around him shirtless in the last video I seen him in, I didn’t spot 1 female, come on out of that closet Robbie…

  42. ragingrhyno21 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:03 PM

    I don’t think Gronkowski thought this through. He could just marry Tebow if he wants to take his virginity…that way he could take his virginity AND still get to ”F” Betty White.

  43. lamwmu says: Apr 13, 2012 7:06 PM

    I like that he didn’t both with trying to marry or kill the other options.

  44. tommyribs says: Apr 13, 2012 7:07 PM

    That is hilarious, Gronkowski is a riot!

    I love this guy.

  45. acmepacker says: Apr 13, 2012 7:08 PM

    This has got to be a slow news day!

  46. phinmick says: Apr 13, 2012 7:12 PM

    Yikes. This is pretty bad and this guy is an idiot. Total dimwit. He’d be working at McDonalds if he couldn’t catch a ball. I hope that the commissioner calls him about his questionable antics!

  47. andyreiddoublecheeseburger says: Apr 13, 2012 7:13 PM

    Dude only bangs porn stars, so Tebow need not worry. However, old Rexy seems to enjoy making “adult” foot films. He should be the “F”.

  48. prmpft says: Apr 13, 2012 7:13 PM

    Raising eyebrows?! Sounds like typical, locker room “guy humor”, I imagine TT will laugh it off.

  53. jg725 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:26 PM

    Who cares?
    We all know gronkowski has no competitive fire – who could possibly be partying like he did just hours after losing the super bowl that they were favored to win?
    Anyone who says otherwise has never played competitive sports in their life – I thought that was despicable – and I did think he was something special before that.

  54. i, flounder says: Apr 13, 2012 7:29 PM

    If that’s his thing, I could beat off on his face.

  55. hannahsdaddy says: Apr 13, 2012 7:34 PM

    No problem with it. How about everybody lightens up? It’s meant to be humorous.

  56. erick670 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:34 PM

    @sfsaintsfan u guys are the dirtiest mofos in the league u need to forfeit ur super bowl win and start worrying about how ur gonna win one game this year

  57. jagsfanugh says: Apr 13, 2012 7:35 PM

    The guy is young and what do young guys do??? Total Non story. Geez Mr Smith i guess you was a mommas boy and never had fun.

  58. babyhorsemorgan says: Apr 13, 2012 7:41 PM

    Rob proudly sports his I.Q. on his watchcap. Even if it is upside down.

  59. christopher525 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:41 PM

    He’ll need a time machine, pretty sure Urban Meyer beat him to that one…

  60. bdshaffer20 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:42 PM

    Gronk is SWAG.Plain and simple.

  61. gb4mn0 says: Apr 13, 2012 7:50 PM

    All the limp wrist vikequeef toads are jealous of Tebow.

  62. axespray says: Apr 13, 2012 7:54 PM

    Lock yo’ Doors, Lock yo’ Windows, Hide yo’ Husbends, Hide Yo Tebow Jerseys cause Gronk is going on a “F” rampage.

    He is an original. Belichick should leave him alone and let him do his thing off the field.

  67. butkus54 says: Apr 13, 2012 8:11 PM

    “Gronkowski raises eyebrows” … in that photo, how could you tell?

    But seriously … a player has created controversy for playing the f, marry, kill game? Really? Sportswriters have too much time on their hands.

    Manufacture drama where there is none to get people to click much?

  70. bozosforall says: Apr 13, 2012 8:25 PM

    First, he admits to not banging the female porn star…then he admits to wanting to take Tebow’s virginity. No shortage of male Pats fans posting here who would volunteer to fluff him before he bends Tebow over.

  71. ctiggs says: Apr 13, 2012 8:32 PM

    let vick, VY, Mcnabb, RG3, haynesworth, or any other similar type of player make these comments you guys would be having a field day on them. I love what gronk said, but dont like the double standard.

  79. weaponx73 says: Apr 13, 2012 9:08 PM

    Ah gronk dumb as a box of rocks and about as funny. For a guy that trys so hard to embarrase the Pats you think he would just cut out the middle man and join the Giants.

  80. yojoemama says: Apr 13, 2012 9:22 PM

    I expected that answer. I mean Gronk was dancing shirtless in a gay club with some gay dude spanking his rear end. I’m not surprised he would gravitate toward Tebow.

  87. j0esixpack says: Apr 13, 2012 10:56 PM

    Give some props to the person that came up with that combination challenge as well! Hilarious!

    Unfortunately Commissioner Goodell may decree that Gronkowski should have F’ed Betty White and Married Tebow, and thus may fine Gronkowsi for getting the answer wrong.

    (I think everyone can agree about killing Rex Ryan.)

  88. Burritto says: Apr 13, 2012 11:00 PM

    The annoying part of this is if a player from any other team said it, Pats fans would all be saying crap like, “Good thing he’s not on the Patriots. Belichick would never put up with something like that.”

    We all this story was written for the share fact that Tim Tebow’s name was mentioned. Some of these men in the media act like they would give it up to Tim Tebow. Especially those on this site.

    Talk about an obsessed mancrush.

    sidenote…I hope all the Tim worshippers won’t be bent out of shape if it does turn out that Tim is gay…Seeing that many of them already perched him higer than Jesus on their mantle of worshipping.

    Gronk is 100% hot , a perfect example of my type . I am a woman , just so you know . Am I getting old , or is this guy so stupid its not sexy ?

  98. pftusername1 says: Apr 16, 2012 7:55 AM

    It’s Monday morning at 7am. A muffled phone hums the tune ‘I’m too sexy’ in the background. The bed covers slowly rustle as a large hand blindly reaches up and over two naked 19 year old college coeds in search of the offending device. The cryptic message simply reads, ‘meeting 8am, BB.’ A barely audible response is heard, ‘Gronk sad.’

  99. raiderbob56 says: Apr 16, 2012 8:04 AM
