Aaron Hernandez

Blocked From Watching NFL in Jail

Aaron Hernandez wasn't watching when Tom Brady and his former Patriots teammates mounted a comeback against the Buffalo Bills this past weekend ... 'cause he's NOT allowed to watch football on TV during his stint behind bars, TMZ has learned.

Sheriff Hodgson of the Bristol County Jail tells us, "While Mr. Hernandez and many other inmates would like to watch football, it is just not part of our policy here ... so that will not be happening. “

Hernandez does have an hour of free time per day ... so, in theory, someone could call him on the phone and play the TV really loud so he can follow along with the action -- but what's the fun in that?

Watching his team play without him is harsh enough. But then he would complain about that as cruel and unusual punishment. Who was dumb enough to hang out with criminals and shoot people when an easy life was laying at your feet?

I'm Awesome admit it     

Disagree if you'd like but he should be allowed he hasn't been convicted yet I'm just saying if Zimmerman can walk free I think he should be allowed to watch football he is not a criminal as of now so why does he have to suffer if he gets convicted for murder I agree he shouldn't be allowed to watch the games but he hasn't.

"mounted a comeback against the Buffalo Bills" I never knew beating the Bills was considered a major victory.

He definitely had it all, living in his own multi-million dollar mansion and getting paid a multi-million dollar paycheck to go with it, glamorous job, beautiful women. He must think about that every day, he was living like a king and gave it all away to be thug.

He can join the ranks of another former pro football player named Rae Carruth who played for the Carolina Panthers. He and his thug buddies murdered his pregnant girlfriend and their unborn son thankfully is alive. Google him and his story has been aired on a few crime shows over the years. He too could've had a good football career but just like Aaron Hernandez, he chose to be a murderer. These two had opportunities many wished they had but squandered it.

He may not be able to watch it on tv but he probably was listening to it on his headphones.
