There is a fascinating theory making the rounds about Aaron Hernandez. New claims suggest the former NFL player took his life in order to secure his daughter’s future. Under Massachusetts law, his death (while his appeal is still pending) serves to VOID his arrest and conviction and restores him to his pre-arrest state, legally.
Therefore, the argument is that if he never violated the law, he never violated his contract because his “bad acts” were never proven or punished.

According to PatriotsWire.com:

Lawyer Michael Coyne told CSNNE’s “Toucher and Rich” Wednesday, “If these convictions are ultimately vacated — both his conviction with Odin Lloyd and his conviction on the gun charge — because of his failure to appeal, will his estate, will his child and his wife be able to recover either some of the bonus that’s still due to him under the Patriots contract or any of his pension benefits that the NFL might owe him?”

In June 2013, the Patriots withheld $3.25 million of Hernandez’s signing bonus. They also refused to pay him his $2.5 million in his guaranteed base salary. New England cited the collective bargaining agreement as their reason for withholding that guaranteed money. That’s the money Hernandez’s lawyers will likely pursue.

Coyne added: “The question is then: If he’s no longer criminally liable, has he violated the provisions of any of his contractual terms? And you know, where there’s money like this involved, the lawyers will have a field day.”

In other words, the legal loophole could result in some income, paid by the Patriots and the NFL, for Hernandez’s family. And lawyers will explore how much money, if any, they can recoup for their client’s family by scrutinizing his contract with the Patriots.

Will Jemele Hill Lose Her ESPN Gig Over Calling Donald Trump A ‘White Supremacist’

The truth should never cost you your job, but in this case it just might…

Jemele Hill was just being a beacon of truth when she tweeted that Donald Trump was a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself” with “other white supremacists.” Find. The. Lie!

Unfortunately, the SC6 with Michael and Jemele co-host landed in hot water with her ESPN employers who issued this little statement after receiving backlash over Hill’s comment:

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”

This isn’t the first time Jemele has used (what some deem as) controversial language while employed at ESPN. During the 2008 NBA Playoffs, Hill wrote in an editorial piece that, “Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan. Deserving or not, I still hate the Celtics.” That opinion garnered her a one-week suspension.

If she got one-week for referencing Hitler, there’s no telling what will happen now that she’s set her sights on Trump. We’re praying for you girl!
