Rob Gronkowski’s Tuesday announcement has nothing to do with playing

Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said he’d be making a big announcement on Tuesday morning, but anyone hoping it had to do with a return to the playing field is going to be disappointed.

Gronkowski’s announcement concerns a party he’ll be hosting in Miami the day before the Super Bowl. Tickets to the event start at $149.

“I may not be playing the game this year, but I will still be going to Miami and I’m going to be debuting my very own music festival and it’s Gronk Beach,” Gronkowski said, via the Associated Press. “I mean, you can’t ask for any other situation that better than that. Bring some wildness, some fun, to bring a music festival to Miami and not just on top of Miami, at the Super Bowl. It’s really never been done like that before.”

Gronkowski would have to return to active duty by November 30 in order to play again this season, although there’s little reason to think that’s in the cards at this point.

  1. This guy is a genius and call him a doofus or whatever but he will not be one of those players broke in a few years.
    Best TE to ever play the game. He was smart to get out when he was still healthy and young enough to do whatever he wants with the rest of his life.
    Young players coming into the league should strive to do exactly what he has done.

  2. I mean, any moron knew he wasn’t playing again. He keeps teasing these things just so the dumb Pats fans can get their hopes up & pay attention to whatever dumb product he is selling.

  3. Anyone that thought this was about playing probably doesn’t understand how marketing works.

    Build attention by creating anticipation. MILK any attention you can grab.

    I bet this is some new product/company he is a brand ambassador for. And the media is just being used as puppets to make Gronk more money.

    This guy is a genius…

    A real genius might be a bit more circumspect about what he chooses to go to the “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT” well for. There’s only just so much water in it.

    The cheaters fans always fall for this clowns act
    ———————————

    By cheaters I assume you mean the fans of all 32 teams in the NFL. Because if you think your team doesn’t cross the line your not playing with 52 cards in the deck.

  6. Why is it that the “all-knowing” Pats fan gets upset when Jets players say something, but not a single peep from him when Gronkowski just can’t seem to shut up?

  7. Let me guess, there will be a booth selling his exclusive line of CBD there for another $149. Today only!

  8. Do you clowns really think that the majority of Pats fans thought he was coming back? Some probably did but most…. nope.
    This was more about Gronk staying relevant and the media grabbing “hits” with teaser headlines.

  9. “Gronk Beach”, I love it.

    Old timers would remember a fellow named Tom Smothers, Gronk reminds me of him because he plays a dummy but he’s actually very smart.

    All the best to him.

  10. Happy for him. We were fortunate to live in a time when we were able to be fans of the GOAT QB, Brady, the GOAT coach, Belichick, and if not the GOAT Tight End certainly one of the best to ever have played the position, Gronk. He gave us a lot of wins, a lot of fun, and now he’s entitled to enjoy himself outside of football, which he is doing. Good for Gronk!

  11. Gronk is pretty good at playing the goof, but props to the original, Terry Bradshaw.
    They both play at being slow and stupid but it’s all a plan. Both are very smart and rich.

  12. Without Gronk, the Patriots won’t beat the Ravens to get to the SB this year. I say this as a Steelers fan. I have no real bias here other than I hate both the Patriots and the Ravens. IOW, I’m marginally objective here.

  13. Gronk. About time to stop playing with the emotions of Patriots fans with these teasing announcements. You are starting to turn off the fans that loved and supported you the most.

  14. “Why is it that the “all-knowing” Pats fan gets upset when Jets players say something, but not a single peep from him when Gronkowski just can’t seem to shut up?”

    1. The Jets have not won a Super Bowl in over 50 years, and outside of the couple times under Rex Ryan they had good years have been largely irrelevant.

    2. Gronk is no longer a Patriot. He is being paid to at times be in the media and announce his various new projects so he can continue having a revenue stream and create one for the companies who have hired him. There’s a difference between “not shutting up” and working. As an example, currently Baker Mayfield “just can’t seem to shut up” and keeps embarrassing himself with childish statements

    That smell coming from NE is from the suddenly soiled diapers of thousands of fanboys. Hopefully Pampers have stocked up for this run on their product. Priceess
    ——————————-

    That is the smell of your own Depends retired one. It’s awesome seeing a grown man like yourself getting all angry at the Pats. Not the right time to be a Steelers fan I guess. Now the that is “priceless”.

  16. Way to frustrate and alienate your fan base, Gronk. Stick a straw of hay between your teeth and go play “big shirtless Rob” in the reboots of HeeHaw and Mama’s Family.

  17. I know for one I love it when the same people post about the Pats nonstop and do not add one bit of football intellect into the conversation. Just pure jealousy nonsense. The “non obsessed” crew always on here should never go away because you guys make my life look as exciting like Hugh Hefner’s.

    Don’t you love it when the Patriots get caught cheating the fanboys now bring up all 31 other teams cheating pasts as if they are justifying the cheating of the Patriots.

    _________________________________________________________

    You must be their biggest fan. You comment the most on Patriots articles. Only real fans have a team in the backside of their mind so often.

  19. Which would you rather spend your money on?
    Gronk’s party for $149 or Tom Brady’s $200 cookbook?

    Given the choice between the two, I’ll take the seasick crocodile.

  20. One guy said Gronk is rich because he i smart …. No. Gronk is rich because he is a football player and a very good one… as such in retirement he has a small window due to the circumstances that he can use football o pitch a few products…once that window is gone no one will care mostly.

    You do not need to be smart to be good at football, which will make you rich.
    Nor do you need to be smart for businesses to use you to enrich themselves from the fame football brought you.

    In fact as Antonio Brown is demonstrating, you need to be smart not to allow them to make you a pariah…Gronk is on his way there.
