    OMG..GRONK actually just cancelled another opportunity to party and bodyslam in VEGAS!

    http://itiswhatitis.weei.com/sports/newengland/football/patriots/2013/05/20/rob-gronkowski-calls-off-las-vegas-trip/

    SERIOUSLY, fact this was even on his agenda scares me. i want to see this guy swear off booze (better healing that way) for an indefinite period. same with all the extra engagements. no way with the back now becoming an issue u can tell me this guy has done everything in his power to maximize availability and his health. now is time to reevaluate his life and lifestyle not just make temporary adjustments for his surgery

    History repeats itself???

     

    Shockey was selected 14th in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. He quickly thrived in the NFL, receiving the inaugural Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year award, and being named to the Pro Bowl in four of his first five seasons (2002, 2003, 2005, and 2006). He was one of the focal points in the Giants offensive passing attack.

    Possessing great athletic abilities to run routes and make crucial blocks, Shockey is equally known for his sometimes brash comments on other players and the media and for his antics off the field. During week 3 of the 2006 NFL season, he commented on a loss against Seattle by saying "We got outplayed, and we got outcoached. Write that down." Shockey apologized for the comment after speaking with head coach Tom Coughlin.

    Shockey signed a five-year contract extension with the Giants on October 12, 2005, making him the highest paid tight end in professional football. The contract had Shockey earning $26.38 million through 2011. Shockey turned in another strong performance during the 2006 season, catching 66 passes for 623 yards and tying a career-high with seven touchdown receptions. For his efforts, Shockey was named to the Pro Bowl.

    On December 16, 2007, in week 15 of the season, while playing the Washington Redskins, Shockey suffered a fractured fibula and damage to his ankle. He underwent surgery, and would be out for the rest of the 2007 seasonKevin Boss then took over Shockey's spot as the starting tight end.

    After Shockey's season-ending injury, the Giants went on to win the NFC title and beat the previously undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. The Giants’ success even without Shockey sparked immediate speculation that the team would be better without the often vocal and increasingly injured tight end. Shockey declined to participate in several Giants team celebrations, including a White House tribute for the new Super Bowl champions and the team's blue carpet ring ceremony.[2] Rumors surfaced before the 2008 NFL Draft that the Giants were looking to trade Shockey.

    After the draft came and went without such a trade, the team stated it planned to keep Shockey a Giant. But it was obvious that Shockey was upset during the team's minicamp in June. While teammates practiced, Shockey stayed in the locker room, much to the dismay of head coach Tom Coughlin. There also was a report that Shockey and general manager Jerry Reese got into a shouting argument during the camp.[3]

    I think Gronk is less of a head case than shockey, but the comparison makes sense. At least canceling the event is a good sign and hopefully it means that he is maturing a bit.

    Gronk is better than Shockey, but more importantly Shockey was an alcoholic.  Sure Gronk likes to party, but I've never seen any evidence that he has the kind of problem that Shockey has.  Plus Shockey was a headcase.  Gronk as far as I can tell has always been a model citizen on the field and in the locker room.

    In response to BassFishingII's comment:

    I think this is all overblown. I am not a fan of above the radar players on my teams, but I also go by what I see on the field.

    Tim Thomas was a quirky and odd guy in the B's locker room, Manny Ramirez was a nutcase, but no one complained when they were performing in the postseason.

    I don't even really buy that this was going to happen. It was probably something that was concoected at one time and since Gronk's need for surgery or whatever, it was never going to happen.

    It's just tools on the interet and TMZ types who infuse these kinds of situations. He brings out on himself, but it's also overblown

    Gronk's best move is to realize he's being used to make money off of him simply because of his actions.

     




    translation: if gronk did this stuff as a jet/giant/steeler/raven/whomever he would be an embarassment, distraction, overrated, the reason they will never win, typical, not committed to winning, etc blah blah blah

    since he is a patriot it's "overblown"
