Gronk claims foul play

It’s true that Rob Gronkowski has been on the wrong end of a lot of calls so far this season, but is he being targeted by NFL officials?

Hasselbeck's recovery technique

Meanwhile, Matt Hasselbeck has an unorthodox method of ensuring he recovers after a game, one that doesn’t include taking an ice bath.

According to ESPN’s Mike Wells, Hasselbeck instead wears compression socks. Judging from the way he’s been performing of late - and at 40-years-of-age - it’s fair to assume he’s made the right call.
