The media got another chance to talk with the teams on Wednesday ahead of Super Bowl XLIX and the always entertaining Rob Gronkowski had another wonderful answer for the gathered press.

Someone asked the man known as Gronk why his partying got so much more attention than other athletes. The Patriots tight end decided not to mince words with his answer.

No, that is not a good answer, that is a great answer.
