Of course, partying didn’t always go smoothly in college. In his book, he talks about a time when he and his frat bros fought other rival frat bros in the front lawn. It happened when the enemy bros threw a beer can into the head of one of Gronk’s friends. He says it was 20 of them versus 10 of Gronk’s party.
"I had seen the movie 'The Outsiders' with Matt Dillon, which had an awesome rumble scene, but this was even better. There was blood flying, bodies getting slammed, alcohol spilling, and women screaming everywhere."
Gronk describes how he went into "Hulk mode and smashed guys!" and threw people into cars. No one was seriously injured (at least on his team), and that was the last fight Gronk ever got into.
Although he’s been known to throw a late hit once in a blue moon. And he did participate in the brawl at Super Bowl XLIX, although the Seahawks started that one. Gronk was fined $8,268, for the brawl and $281,250 for the late hit, according to Spotrac.
