On Thursday the NFL season officially kicks off. On Friday the murder case against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez does too.

He’ll be arraigned in Fall River Superior Court at 2:00 p.m. ET via FOX 29 in Boston. As Fred Gwynne once showed Joe Pesci it’s an easy process — guilty or not guilty. Or possibly “absolutely 100 percent not guilty.”

Hey it worked for the last NFL player who tried it.
