I doubt Aaron Hernandez thought people would look the other way if he murdered people because he was good a football.

Really?  Because at Florida they looked the other way all the time because he was good at football.  Why wouldn't he believe he was untouchable.

Because people have the ability to recognize that while they can get away with a multitude of things when their skills are in high demand, they can't get away with murder, literally?

Alternately, what is the murder rate of professional athletes versus society overall?  Unless it can be shown professional athletes as a group are significantly more likely to commit murder, I am going to have a hard time buying the idea that a lifetime of favorable treatment and others looking the other way because of their gifts plays a significant part in leading someone to murder. 

I simply struggle with the idea that too many take the life of someone else in large part because they think they can get away with it.  Murdering someone is something that goes beyond feeling entitled, movies or TV shows aside.  I think people murder others because they are emotionally distressed, be it anger or a sense of self preservation or a sense of needing something someone else has or just being unstable mentally or some combination thereof.

Most football players get away with stuff others wouldn't. Most don't murder people either...

If that is the case Godell needs some security.
