Aaron Hernandez can't watch football in jail

Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, charged with the first-degree murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, cannot watch any football while incarcerated.

Apparently, this is part of the policy at the Bristol County Jail. None of the inmates are allowed to watch the game Hernandez once played at a high level.

"While Mr. Hernandez and many other inmates would like to watch football, it is just not part of our policy here ... so that will not be happening," Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told TMZ.

Hernandez is being held without bail and entered a not-guitly plea in at his arraignment. His trial will begin sometime next year.
