04:21 PM ET 06.27 | Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will remain in jail on a first-degree murder charge after a judge in Bristol County (Mass.) Superior Court denied his appeal Thursday to be released on bail. The decision from Judge Renee P. Dupuis upholds the ruling of district court Judge Daniel J. O'Shea issued Wednesday after Hernandez was arraigned on the murder charge and five weapons charges in relation to the slaying of Odin Lloyd. The bullet-riddled body of the 27-year-old former semi-pro football player and friend of Hernandez was discovered in an industrial park near Hernandez's home June 17. Hernandez's defense team, led by attorney James Sultan, argued that Hernandez should have been freed on bail because Hernandez was not a risk to flee while he was awaiting charges since last week, was a solid citizen and homeowner in North Attleborough, Mass., and had a longtime fiancee and a 7-month old daughter.

" ... solid citizen ... "

Sure, if you consider a "solid citizen" to be someone who dumps the bullet-riddled corpse of his friend in an industrial park.

And is a suspect in:

1) Shooting a guy in the arm and taking out his eye
2) Drive by shooting killing two men

The football gods are still punishing the Patriots for their involvement in Videogate!

Why does his lawyer look so dejected?? Because he knows his client is guilty as sin.. Oh well he's still getting paid.

I would have been shocked if he were granted bail.

June 27, 2013  05:27 PM ET

Can't understand why he did this. [almost knowing] it wasn't going too work out.

"Knock-knock."
"Who's there?"
"Aaron Hernandez."
"Aaron Hernandez who?"
"Aaron Hernandez is getting the chair!"

A sports figure? No surprise, unfortunately. And no surprise for Hollywood figures, either. That's why LiLo is still driving and Snoopy Dog Dog is still walking the streets.

Because he gets to defend a guilty **** instead of a guilty OJ.
