  1. And yet Fraudger wants more end zone prancing – which is often a form a taunting when taken beyond a simple spike or high-five.

    Doubt he would have done that last year

    While on the team with Aaron Hernandez? Fans of NE should not throw stones while living in glass houses.

    A few fun fact for you chip:
    Hernandez played his last game for NE before Blount ever joined the team and that was 4 seasons ago.
    No one but you would ever equate a player guilty of a taunting penalty with a murderer.
    I wasn’t throwing stones at anyone and I’m sorry Belichick was in the car that ran over your puppy

    What a random comment.

    Last year – E.g. 2016.

    Hernandez was last on the roster in 2013. Your comment makes zero sense.

    BB was his coach last year, on the world champion Patriots, remember? BB wouldn’t put up with that crap. That’s his point.

  5. Patriots fans have short memories. In 2016, Blount was fined 18k for ripping off Suh’s face mask. And he was also fined for a fight he picked with Burfict. But yeah, otherwise, you’re right, commentawaitingdeletion, the Patriot Way really kept him in line.

    I guess equating penalties of aggression in the heat of the moment against 2 of the league’s dirtier players is better than equating them with murder but they are still a far cry from the self indulgence of taunting. It’s too bad you couldn’t see a humorous observation for what it was and felt the need to go over the top. Life is too short to go through it without a sense of humor but with a full sock puppet drawer.
