Bill Belichick's GF Fishnet, Anyone? Flaunts Bod on Island Vacay

2/20/2018 2:12 PM PST
Breaking News

Bill Belichick didn't win the Super Bowl -- but he's winning at life.

Here's Bill's long-term girlfriend, Linda Holliday, stuntin' in a fishnet 1-piece somewhere a hell of a lot warmer than New England ... and lookin' damn good.

No sign of Bill -- guessing he's behind the camera in a hoodie.

It's the second beach pic Linda's shared since the Super Bowl ... but play time's over for her Coach Belichick, 'cause she also mentioned they just got back to Boston.

Sure Bill's stoked to get back to work -- though we bet he prefers hangin' with a half-naked Linda.

By the way, Bill and Linda reportedly met back in 2007 and began dating shortly after that. Since they've been together, the Patriots have been to 5 Super Bowls and won 2 of 'em. 

Not a bad run ...

Exclusive Details

Rob Gronkowski and his family are raging through New England -- hitting up 3 children's hospitals in less than 24 hours ... in a mission to give away a TON of cash!! 

Rob -- along with his bro Dan and father Gordie -- decided today would be the day they distributed the $75,000 they raised by raffling off tickets to the Super Bowl. 

The donation spree started off at Boston Children's Hospital -- where the Gronks played games with the kids and then presented a big, ol $25,000 check!!! 

Dan tells TMZ Sports the family is en route to Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, Maine -- followed by Hasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island. 

And yes, each hospital gets a big $25k check -- and some play time with the Gronks!

The Gronks raised the money through their Gronk Nation Youth Foundation -- which has a great relationship with all three hospitals. 

Gronk's BFF Teases WWE Future for Rob ... Amid Retirement Rumors

2/11/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If Rob Gronkowski retires from football ... could he have a 2nd career in the WWE ring?!

That's what Gronk's best buddy, WWE superstar Mojo Rawley, hinted at before the Super Bowl ... just 1 day before Rob shocked the NFL universe by saying he might not be back in 2018.

"It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of WHEN," Mojo told TMZ Sports, before adding, "I can't speak for him."

Hard to think Gronk -- injury (and concussion) history aside -- would call it quits at age 28 ... especially to get body-slammed in the ring.

That said ... you can't deny he's got the look.

EXCLUSIVE

Dry your tears, Patriots fans ... if Chicago Bears star Kyle Long is right, Rob Gronkowski isn't going anywhere anytime soon, 'cause Long tells TMZ Sports all the retirement talk is just that ... talk.

After the Super Bowl, Gronk said he was pondering his future in football -- some think he'll actually retire. 

But not Long -- who strongly believes Gronk has a lot of football left in him and will return to the Patriots next year.

Ex-Pats TE Jermaine Wiggins Praises Josh McDaniels: Indy's 'a S**t Show' Anyway

2/7/2018 9:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Who the hell wants to go to the Colts organization and play for [Jim] Irsay. I mean, that place is an absolute s**t show" -- says ex-Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins.

Wiggins would know ... he played for the Colts back in 2002 and tells TMZ Sports he's convinced Josh McDaniels made the RIGHT choice in backing out of the Indy coaching job. 

"[If McDaniels] goes to Indy, if they suck in two years, they'll be looking for a new head coach and he'll be out," Wiggins says. 

So, the better decision is to stay with the best organization in football and take over when Bill Belichick leaves. Job security and more money. Boom.

Tony Dungy Rips Josh McDaniels You Screwed Over Your Assistants

2/7/2018 8:38 AM PST
Breaking News

Tony Dungy is ripping into Josh McDaniels -- saying there's "no excuse big enough to justify" screwing over all of the asst. coaches who are getting burned in his coaching flip-flop. 

"It’s one thing to go back on your word to an organization," Dungy said ... "But having assistant coaches leave jobs to go with you then leave them out to dry is indefensible. For COMFORT??"

This all stems from Josh's last minute decision to back out of a deal to coach the Indianapolis Colts and go back with the Patriots ... AFTER he lured a team of assistants to leave other jobs and sign contracts with Indy. 

Now Indy will have to hire a new head coach -- and that person will likely blow out McDaniels' entire team and bring in his own guys. Dungy clearly believes the assistants are getting screwed big time. 

"Has nothing to do with the Colts. It’s about the families of those assistant coaches that he totally disregarded. But who cares about them???!"

Dungy added ... "You don’t do that to the families of your peers."

Rob Gronkowski 911 Call 'My Whole House Got Robbed'

2/6/2018 1:38 PM PST
Breaking News

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 call Rob Gronkowski PERSONALLY made to police when he realized his Boston area house was burglarized while he was at the Super Bowl.

During the call, placed Monday evening when Gronk came back from Minnesota, the Patriots tight end said:

"This isn't an emergency ... this is just uh, Rob Gronkowski calling. And while I was gone, my whole house got robbed while on the Super Bowl trip and I just got back."

According to the police report, the crook or crooks broke into the house through a window and raided several rooms.

Fortunately, Rob's bedroom door was locked and the burglar(s) didn't get inside. However, Rob has two roommates -- and both of their rooms were raided. 

According to the police report, the burglary occurred on Sunday evening at 8:50 PM ET -- right when Gronk was playing in the Super Bowl. 

Cops have not said what items were stolen -- but have assured the public they are on the hunt for the perps. 

MLB to NFL: Our Playoff Checks Are Bigger Than Yours!!!

2/6/2018 11:28 AM PST

Good news for the Philadelphia Eagles ... they're getting FAT ASS league-issued playoff bonus checks for winning the Super Bowl. 

Bad news ... it's WAYYY less than what the Houston Astros got for winning the World Series.

Here's the math ... each Eagles player gets $28k for the Divisional round game, $51k for the NFC Championship and $112k for winning the Super Bowl. 

Grand bonus total -- $191,000. 

Not a bad haul (in addition to whatever playoff bonuses individual players have in their contracts with the team). 

So, how does it stack up to playoff bonuses in other sports? 

The Houston Astros got $438k per player in league-issued bonus money after their 2017 playoff run. 

Obviously, MLB teams have less players on the roster to play -- but let's take a look at the ratings. 

The Super Bowl reportedly drew in 103.4 million viewers. 

The World Series averaged 18.9 million viewers per game -- but it went SEVEN GAMES! 

And don't forget, before the WS the Astros played a 7-game ALCS with the Yankees. Game 7 reportedly drew 9.9 million viewers. 

As for the NFL, the players agreed to the bonus structure in the collective bargaining agreement -- and the bonus goes up every year. 

So is anyone gonna complain? Probably not. Enjoy the paycheck that most people don't make in a year! 

But don't feel bad for the Pats -- they still get to rake in a nice $56K for making it to the Big Game ... making their total postseason bonus at $135K.

Rob Gronkowski's New England mansion sits behind a gate -- surrounded by spiked fencing -- with a security system ... but it wasn't enough to deter burglars. 

The media has already arrived to Gronk's home to cover the story ... that the Patriots' home was targeted by criminals who raided the place while Rob was in Minnesota for the Super Bowl. 

The Foxborough Police Dept. says it's investigating the incident and hopes to bring the crooks to justice. 

Hopefully, Gronk has some sort of video surveillance system that can help the police -- but we couldn't see any cameras from outside the home.
