Inside TrackRob Gronkowski might have called his Gronk Party Ship cruise the ‘€œmost turnt up event ever’€ but a few of his fellow NFL players are wondering if there’€™s a double standard at play for the Patriots’€™ one-man party.

Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara and Texans cornerback Charles James tweeted comments suggesting that Gronk gets away with acting like a giant frat boy on a booze-soaked high-seas bacchanalia, but public opinion would be a lot different if Panthers QB Cam Newton or Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. pulled a similar stunt.

And attorneys for Cowboys QB Tony Romo have asked why Gronk could throw a floating fiesta onboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship with gambling onboard but Romo (and, BTW, Gronk) were told by the NFL that they couldn’€™t take part in a fantasy football conference because last summer it took place in a Vegas casino.

Last things first, I couldn’t agree more with Tony Romo and his lawyers that the NFL way overreacted to him hosting a fantasy football event. But like I said at the time, that had nothing to do with its proximity to a casino and everything to do with … wait for it … money. That was about players making a buck on the side without paying protection money to the NFL’s mafiosos. So they gave them the old “This is a nice conference you’re running. It would be a shame if someone were to shut it down” thing. But blame them. Don’t go dragging the Gronkowskis and their goofy little brofest into your squabble. Especially since Rob Gronkowski was a victim of the pro football racketeers too.

But to the rest of these NFL guys claiming a double standard, all I can say is “Really?” You honestly want to go there? You want to equate Gronk getting his Twerk on with a bunch of drunken snowbirds trying to escape another long, dreary winter for a few days to … what? Cam Newton acting like a petulant, spoiled little Veruka Salt because he didn’t get his way in the Super Bowl? Odell Beckham Jr. completely losing his crap in the Panthers game to the tune of three 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalties? Those are your examples of unfair treatment?

Nice try. But you couldn’t have found two worse examples to make your point. Because no one in pro football has gotten better treatment than Newton and Beckham. Newton was flat out the most embraced, celebrated and praised player in the league last year. And as I’ve pointed out repeatedly, Beckham Jr. has gotten more adulation out of a (great) catch he made in a losing effort on a 6-10 team than any player in NFL history. And whatever criticism those two have gotten is the result of direct harm they did to their teams. Things they did that cost them games, wheter it was failure to fall on a fumble or melting down into a slew of personal foul calls. Which is sort of the point of both playing the games and talking about them.

Meanwhile, Gronk is knocking on the door of being the best ever to play his position and yet still has the Fun Police trying to cite him for violation of their Harmless Enjoyment of Life statutes. Criticism he’s faced before from you joyless Puritans out there who apparently were never in your early 20s before.

So in answer to the question of would happen to Newton or OBJ if they pulled “a similar stunt,” they’d be accused of enjoying their offseason. Which is all anyone should be saying about Gronk.

Peter King, on the two draft picks the NFL took from the PatriotsBased on the weight of the evidence from the past 13 months, and that weight being circumstantial and not convincing, there’€™s one conclusion I’€™ve reached entering the 2016 draft season: Roger Goodell needs to give back the picks.

Mike FlorioThe NFL should do that, but it won’€™t. … A 333-game database of evidence could have shown that the Patriots were clearly guilty or (more likely) that the results were inconclusive. The league chose not to do that, for the same reason folks choose not to get on the scale the day after Thanksgiving.

Stephanie StradleyIt is in my immediate personal interest to have the Patriots draft picks taken away because I root for a different AFC team. However, it is in my long term personal interest for the NFL to have logical, sensible, fair processes that do not adversely affect fans. … The Patriots punishment is huge. Two draft picks and a million dollars. After they ‘€œtotally cooperated,’€ and there was no evidence of any sort that anyone wanted footballs deflated outside of the ranges prescribed by the rules.

Jemele HillThey never should have gotten the punishment in the first place. [The NFL] went far and above what they should have done. …. If you can’t even prove they did anything wrong, then why are they fined a million dollars and missing draft picks? For what?

And there you have it. The war drums New Englanders started beating when Roger Goodell’s onerous, draconian punishment was first handed down are beginning to echo around the sports world. Some of the same influential media voices that swallowed the NFL’s line of bull hook, line and sinker have come to their senses. Just as I predicted all those months ago, America is waking up from Deflategate like it was a drunken bender it went on and saying “What the hell was I thinking?” And coming to the realization that the only cure for the hangover is to give the Patriots their draft picks back. Science is winning out over science fiction.

But don’t just listen to me. Or these national media people. Let’s go back to the Patient Zero of the Deflategate virus:

The Wells ReportIn particular, we do not believe there was any wrongdoing or knowledge of wrongdoing by Patriots ownership, Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick or any other Patriots coach in the matters investigated.

And yet, those draft picks are gone.  Now, does this groundswell of reasonable people demanding justice mean those picks will be reinstated? Hell to the no. That would require Goodell to demonstrate a quality he’s never shown before: Integrity. But by no means does that make the cause not worth fighting for. Even in the face of insurmountable odds, a lost cause is still a cause if it’s just. And it’s people who carry on after they’re told they’re wasting their time that change the world. Right makes might and all that.

I suspect in the weeks leading up to the draft we’ll hear from more and more of these right-minded people fighting on the side of the angels, and the pressure on the league will mount. But even if it doesn’t get those picks back, anything that makes every other NFL fan base uncomfortable while galvanizing Patriots fans is a pure good. So keep up the fight. And of course, Defend the Wall.
