Like the venerable Mr. Simmons, I am an unabashed New England homer. I certainly feel the Gronk love, but he belongs to America first and New England second, if that.

Gronk cameoing on Wrestlemania to boost trade value? Just barely plausible…but no matter how management justified it, I have no doubt it was a Gronk idea first. If the Gronk cruise sets sail for, say, LA then I will bid a tearful goodbye but fully accept they need him more than us. Let’s face it- careers are painfully short in the NFL for anyone not playing QB or kicker, however Gronk can maximize his career value I endorse. Anchors away.
