    Re: The Gronkowski infection may not even exist!

    "Kraft could have sued the entire newspaper and won with ease. Plainly, Tomase should have been fired on the spot. I would hope even he would admit that.  Two cardinal sins in journalism"

     

    "IMO, once you damage your credibility so badly in one city like that, there is no way you should still be there because any intelligent fan/reader won't ever read your material."

    Agreed. It's a huge blight on the Herald that he is still employed by them. 

    After Tomase's heinous reporting, which inflicted huge damage on the franchise, I wrote to the Herald that if Tomase wasn't fired I would never read their media again. Ever. I knew that would be a tough vow for me to keep, but I have kept it. 

    I'm not a fan of firing journalists because you don't like their opinions or research but this was pure "I want to be first so the heck with the facts" junk. 

    Tomase and the Herald are lucky they were not sued by Bob Kraft. 

    As for Gronk I think there is bit more meat on that particular bone, pardon the puns, but I'd put nothing past the Hearld.

    Patriot fans have long memories. I will never forget (nor forgive) John Tomase of the Herald writing his made-up story prior to the SB. After everyone associated with the Pats stopped talking to Tomase, the Herald switched him to baseball. I still find it odd that he covers any sport at all, especially in New England.

    [/QUOTE]


    I agree with you 100% It is actually embarrassing to a great city like Boston that we have sportwriters like Tomase and the other admitted plagarist Ron Borges. Get rid of them both!

    Gronkowski surgery not inevitable, but probable Posted by Mike Florio on April 11, 2013, 8:09 PM EDT

    Gronkowski AP

    The prospect of another arm surgery for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn’t as inevitable as otherwise believed.

    While it’s indeed probable at this point that Gronkowski will need another procedure on his twice-broken forearm, there’s still a chance that the fracture will heal and the infection will resolve itself without a scalpel.

    The loose timetable is six more weeks.  If the fracture isn’t healing well enough by then (and if the infection hasn’t cleared up), the last resort of one more operation will be pursued.

    For now, the last resort is regarded as probable, but not definite.

    Unfortunately for Gronkowski, his fun-loving, slam-dancing ways will cause some to believe that his current predicament comes from his lifestyle.  But infections happen to anyone; quarterback Tom Brady developed an infection after his ACL/MCL surgery in 2008, and plenty of other athletes and non-athletes don’t ultimately have a fully successful outcome.

    That said, all NFL surgeries will continue to be called a success, and all players will be deemed to be ahead of schedule in their recovery — unless and until reality gets in the way.

    Re: The Gronkowski infection may not even exist!

    Post-surgical staphylococcus bacteria infections are unfortunately common.  If Gronk contracted a staph infection from surgery or aftercare, the protocol is to go back in to remove the diseased tissue.  Often times, the wound is left open to drain (vacuum pump) and to be exposed (though covered) to the air.  There are different strains of the bacteria, one of which is resistant to antibiotics and difficult to address.  The infection can be in soft tissue (skin or even organs) in bones, and in bones, the surgeon cannot just excise the infected area.  This is not, repeat not, due to patient failure but is caused by inattentive or sloppy hygiene in the hospital.  Many hospitals have changed their cleanup methods and improved their infection rate, but hospital bacteria are alive nonetheless.  Why blame a patient for unintended consequences?
