Pats fans react to Hernandez arrest
BOSTON (WHDH) -- For three seasons fans have cheered for Aaron Hernandez on the gridiron. But this will be how many remember the now former Patriots tight end. Hernandez was hauled into court to face a charge of first degree murder.
“It’s amazing. Obviously a great Pats player and you don’t want to see that happen to a great player, but obviously they have some evidence against him,” said one Pats fan.
Fans were disappointed that a player they once admired could wind up in court.
“People put all of their hope in these players and time and time again, they let down their fans,” said another Pats fan.
Many agreed with the step the Patriots took to cut Hernandez from the team after his arrest.
“They must have known something, that there was enough evidence there and they it didn’t look good…that he might be accused of the murder,” said one Pats fan.
