It was pretty weird when Rob Gronkowski was seen dancing enjoyably at a party after the Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the Giants.

However, the Gronk has finally came out publicly to comment on the situation that happened earlier this month.

"Hard work and dedication, I always put my job first before anything, no matter what it is. I'm always just dedicating myself. Unfortunately, it just happened like that. I mean, it is what it is," Gronkowski said on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, as part of Mike Missanelli's celebrity call-in contest.

"I have a lot of fun with my family. It was the first time I got to see them in a while. We were just having fun with my brothers and stuff, friends I hadn't seen in a while. The chance to hang out with [the band] LMFAO, that was pretty cool, too. Unfortunately we didn't win and that was the number one goal. That's all we did, was work, for the two weeks from the Baltimore game to the Giants game, just to keep on grinding. I was in the training room 24/7 getting healthy. Same with everybody else. Fortunately we just came up short."

Gronkowski was criticized heavily for his actions. Former New England safety, Rodney Harrison, said that this wouldn't slip by if he was still on the team.

"I'm 100 percent in, every single game, every single practice, every single thing just to get out there on the field. It was definitely a tough loss. I was hurting from it. Everyone was hurting from it. You don't work that hard all year to get to the final game and lose. It just hurts, definitely. It just went on. I'm an [easy going kind of] guy. I try to get over things as soon as possible."

Gronkowksi is still hurting after the loss: "You're never over it emotionally. Every time people bring it up to you, every time you see something in the paper or on TV about it ... deep down, it's making me want to grind even harder this year, and this offseason."
