Aaron Hernandez

Blocked From Watching NFL in Jail

9/10/2013 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

Most inmates get to watch tv in some states they have cable and xbox. This time they are going to make an example out of him and make sure everyone knows hes not getting anything extra. I bet other inmates watched football on Sunday. Keep your head up Aaron your only guilty in the media not in court. The only thing you would of seen Sunday anyway is a team that desperately needed a great TE. Regardless of what the Patriots say u will not be easily replaced and it showed big time!

They should let him watch. It would kill him to think he could be out there playing but decided to be a low life murdeing POS instead.

What's funny is this is all a lie.. At the Dartmouth House of Corrections inmates do watch sports including football. ESPN is one of the 10 or so channels they watch.

Hernandez has a home painting of himself in a canoe imitating General George Washington crossing the patomac with his indian friends. The only difference is that his indian friends are dead in the canoe and are beiong transported unethically.
