Bill Belichick apologizes for Rob Gronkowski's 'bulls-' hit on Bills DB

Gronkowski apologizes for cheap shot against Bills

Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots has been suspended without pay for one game for a violation of unnecessary roughness rules in Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

"I'd say on anything that is outside of our control, such as injuries that could go down to pregame workouts and so forth, things that are out of control are out of our control", Belichick said. "It was a lot of frustration and I was just really frustrated at that moment". The reason he was frustrated, he explained, was because he felt as though there should have been a flag on the play.

A decision could come quickly, as several players suspended this season - Tampa's Mike Evans, Denver's Aqib Talib and Oakland's Michael Crabtree - were informed of their suspensions on Mondays.

Gronkowski said his frustration boiled over because of an earlier interference call on him while running a pass route, and the feeling that because of his size, he is often flagged for interference whenever he bumps another player on a pass route or a player deliberately holds on to him. "I don't really believe in those types of shots like that, but just due to frustration and the game of football, emotions, that's what happened". "There was a couple of times in the game they're calling me for the craziest stuff ever". "And it's like insane, like, what I am supposed to do?"

That often causes the moon to shine with a reddish hue, in what's known as a 'blood moon'. At only 7 percent larger, the moon will likely appear pretty normal to most observers.

With White on the ground, Gronkowski threw himself at White, appearing to injure him with a late hit.

Gronkowski caught nine passes for 147 yards against Buffalo on Sunday. "But, just through the frustration process, game of football emotions, just what happened". And then they don't call that [on White].

"It was a dirty play, apology or not", Hyde said. I've been a part of plenty of games, whatever sport it might be.

The hit sent White into the concussion protocol, according to Bills coach Sean McDermott. The New England Patriots won't have Gronkowski's services this week against the rival Miami Dolphins after the league levied a suspension Monday.
