Plus, he wasn&#8217;t exactly a sports buff, much less an athlete. &#8220;He&#8217;s not that guy who&#8217;s going to sit down on Sunday and watch eight hours of football,&#8221; says Taylor Kitsch (who played FNL&#8217;s Tim Riggins), with whom he bonded during long motorcycle rides. Chandler found inspiration in a biography of <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/new-england-patriots.htm">New England Patriots</a> coach <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/football/bill-belichick.htm">Bill Belichick</a> but acknowledges: &#8220;I couldn&#8217;t coach my way out of a paper bag.&#8221;</em></p> <p>If you needed any more proof of the greatness of <a href="http://media.weei.com/football/bill-belichick.htm" class="r_lapi">Bill Belichick</a>, and I can&#8217;t imagine why you would, here it is. So mighty is his coaching superpower that an effete Cabernet-sipping Hollywood pretty boy with no knowledge of football of any kind can give arguably the greatest football coaching acting performance simply by reading a biography of him. Not because Kyle Chandler met with him. Not because he followed The Hooded One around and studied his mannerisms and how he does his job the way some method actors will work with cops or soldiers to prepare for a role. No. This non-football fan learned how to play Coach Taylor just from a book about Belichick. That would be like me playing the Queen of England just from reading about her and nailing the role.</p> <p>And make no mistake, Kyle Chandler did give probably the greatest portrayal of a football coach ever. You could throw in Pat O&#8217;Brien in &#8220;Knute Rockne, All American&#8221; for sure. Al Pacino chewed scenery in &#8220;Any Given Sunday&#8221; but I loved it for the unintentional comedy. Gene Hackman was slumming in &#8220;The Replacements&#8221; so he doesn&#8217;t count. And I&#8217;ll give it to Henry Winkler in &#8220;The Waterboy&#8221; and Billy Bob Thornton&#8217;s portrayal as Coach Taylor in the movie version of &#8220;FNL.&#8221; But no one ever nailed the role of a football coach better than Kyle Chandler did, and now we know who deserves the credit.</p> <p>Bill Belichick is not only the best real coach in the world, he&#8217;s the best fictional one as well.

In other words, it was a pretty tame weekend for them all around. I mean, this took place at 1 a.m. and not one of them had gone Shirtless O&#8217;Clock yet? Gronk must be starting his training for OTAs.</p> <p>I have one rhetorical question, though: Is there anyone left who still gets their panties in a bunch about the way Gronk conducts himself? For a while there it was in vogue to rip him for the way he has fun with his brothers and paint him as an irresponsible party boy who should be home every night a comfy chair by the fireplace reading James Joyce or something. The Boston media market was lousy with modern-day Puritans, furrowing their brow disapprovingly, wagging their fingers and tsk-tsking him for being &#8220;reckless,&#8221; not taking care of himself and hurting his team. Right. Because we all remember how the &#8217;70s Bruins, the &#8217;80s <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/basketball/boston-celtics.htm">Celtics</a> and the <a class="r_lapi" href="http://media.weei.com/baseball/boston-red-sox.htm">Red Sox</a> of the 2000s were all guys who drank a glass of warm milk and went to bed at 9 p.m. every night.</p> <p>My point being that I wouldn&#8217;t change an iota about <a href="http://media.weei.com/football/rob-gronkowski.htm" class="r_lapi">Rob Gronkowski</a>. Not one synapse of his brain, not one strand of his DNA. He&#8217;s a guy who&#8217;s enjoying his life. Who has fun in his free time with the exact same enthusiasm he works at his football. He&#8217;s a force of nature, and you don&#8217;t try to quell that. Asking him to change the way he conducts himself would be like, to steal a phrase from &#8220;The Sound of Music&#8221; of all damned things, trying to keep a wave upon the sand.</p> <p>Besides, there is no one being as responsible as he is. He&#8217;s got his buddy Goon to drive the party bus and get everyone home safely. He&#8217;s got his brothers and his dad with him. In a world where you&#8217;ve got guys like <a href="http://www.wsoctv.com/news/news/local/cmpd-baltimore-ravens-player-driving-100-55-mph-zo/nkLtW/" target="_blank">Baltimore Ravens Victor Hampton</a> driving drunk 100 mph in a 55 zone, if you&#8217;ve got a problem with Gronk spiking a cake off his brother&#8217;s head on a February night in Vegas, you have a problem with happiness.</p> <p>Don&#8217;t ever change, Gronk.

What he seemed to doing here is betting on the collective goodwill of humanity to defeat a small number of these troglodytes, and so far the gamble appears to be paying off. Check the Twitter page of either one of these guys and you see their castles being stormed by fed-up people demanding they answer for themselves, while both guys are just in hiding someplace. So, well played, Schill.</p> <p>Which, by the way, is typical behavior of your Internet trolling classes. They somehow talk themselves into the delusion that all communication is one way. That social media exists as a megaphone for them to shout from, and the rest of will listen but can&#8217;t yell back. And when they are held accountable for the stuff that comes out of their keypads, they jump down a spider hole and act like they&#8217;re the victims.</p> <p>So apparently Nagel and MacDonald won&#8217;t do the right thing, defend themselves and explain why they want to sexually assault a college girl for the crime of having a famous father who&#8217;s proud of her. And if they don&#8217;t, then it&#8217;s up to the rest of us to do the right thing by going all scorched Earth on them until they break.

However, when he started to see tweets &#8220;with the words &#8216;rape,&#8217; &#8216;bloody underwear&#8217; and pretty much ever other vulgar and defiling word you could likely fathom,&#8221; he decided to act.</p> <p>Schilling wrote a response Sunday on his 38 Pitches blog in which he expressed his disgust with the behavior. He identified two of the offenders as a Brookdale Community College (Lincroft, N.J.) radio host and a Montclair State University fraternity vice president, and seven others as college athletes.</p> <p>The ESPN analyst (who accepted an invitation to join Dennis &amp; Callahan at 9 a.m. Monday) noted that he expects to be the subject of insults from Democrats, Yankees fans and &#8220;people that don&#8217;t like the sound of my voice,&#8221; and he notes that &#8220;that&#8217;s a pretty big group.&#8221; But, he questions, are putrid comments about his daughter &#8220;even remotely OK?

Her boyfriend, a wicked good hockey player who has a fighting streak I absolutely love is going out of his mind to be let off his leash but unlike the athletes tweeting this stuff he understands the potential consequences of his actions and knows the time and place will hopefully come when he can make it right on his own terms.</em></p> <p><em>These boys have yet to understand one of life&#8217;€™s most important lessons.
