After his curious statements that he hardly watches any video material during the season, Rob Gronkowski is now clearing up the rumors. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end apparently hangs in front of the screen for so long that even his girlfriend gets mad at him.
Rob Gronkowski is known for his humorous manner away from the football field. At public appearances, he regularly chats about his strange lifestyle and one or the other secret slips out of his mind.
In an interview with NFL legends Peyton and Eli Manning , he caused a stir with critical statements: “I don’t watch videos of opponents, I just walk past them,” he said on “ESPN“.
Because the words meant as fun made waves, the veteran provided clarity in the run-up to the top game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Bruce Arians threatens: “Cancel Vet Day”
As “Gronk” stated to “ESPN“, the statements were only to be understood as a joke: “Actually, I watch a lot of films. I have to blame Nelson Luis [Vice President of Communications at the Buccanneers; editor’s note] “, he explained the performance with the Manning Brothers.
“He asked me to play there eight times. I told him it was a bad idea because they always make me say stupid things,” he said. In the end, this also happened.
The 32-year-old went on to joke that he was then warned by Head Coach Bruce Arians: “Now I’ve got Coach Arians on my neck too. He threatens that I won’t get any more Vet Days,” he said. Older players usually get the first training day of the week off, which is known as “Vet Day”.
Friend of hardworking Gronkowski annoyed
In the private sphere, too, the topic has often caused unrest: “Believe me, I watch so many films that my girlfriend gets really angry,” continued Gronkowski: “Sometimes she throws things at me because I watch so many films” .
“Sometimes I come home and she is angry because I take out the iPad right away. I then explain to her that I still have to study.” With four touchdowns already caught this season, studying video for “Gronk” has paid off so far.
The superstar emphasizes that the many successes would not be easy: “It does not feel easy. Even if it looks like it may, but there is so much work behind it. We have to keep going, otherwise other teams will give us stop, “he said in conclusion.
A real endurance test is on for Gronkowski and the “Bucs” on Sunday. The also unbeaten Los Angeles Rams want to trip up the reigning Super Bowl champions.
Now it remains to be seen whether “Gronk” paid attention to the video study.
