After reading the Deadspin article of what happened with Grady Hardy and Nicole Holder and seeing no remorse from Greg Hardy, the question is why is he playing football and Ray Rice is not? Why didn’t Roger Goodell stick to his 10 game suspension or if not raise it to the entire season? After reading and seeing the photo of Nicole Holder bruised back and chin plus being pulled by her hair …you wonder why Goodell wasted so much time fighting Tom Brady over deflated footballs when his time could have been put to better use fighting to ensure that Greg Hardy never steps on a NFL football field ever again or puts on a NFL uniform ever again and the only way he gets into a stadium is if he pays for a ticket like everyone else.
I have said this before when the Ray Rice story broke and I will say again …ZERO…TOLERANCE On domestic violence period. Why would Jerry Jones want this guy on his team regardless of how talented a pass rusher he maybe. Here is a quote from Jones on recent developments…
“While we did not have access to the photos that became public today, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident. We as an organization take this very seriously. We do not condone domestic violence. We entered into the agreement with Greg fully understanding that there would be scrutiny and criticism. We have given Greg a second chance. He is a member of our team and someone who is grateful for the opportunity he has been given to move forward with his life and his career.”
So let me see if I got this straight, if Jones had access to the photos that became public would that have swayed him from signing Hardy? You don’t condone it but you sign him anyway and wouldn’t go near Ray Rice? Where is the consistency with that? Goodell who is entrusted with protect the NFL shield, the NFL Brand looks even worse than the deflate gate because he had Hardy dead to rights and let the court bully him into reducing his suspension into 4 games, really???10 games wasn’t enough, not even close, Hardy should not be allowed to play ever again.
Everything since Hardy signed with Dallas showed no remorse and not one degree of regret, at least Ray Rice showed remorse even wants to work to speak out on domestic violence. Hardy? nothing but arrogance.
On if he has any remorse or regret about what led to him being suspended four games: “I’m sorry that I couldn’t be here for my teammates. The worst feeling in the world is not being there for somebody you care about or somebody that needs you.”
— On if he has any intention of working with domestic violence programs: “I think the best way to win the game is stick to the game plan. If you’ve been running the ball good and doing everything you’re supposed to do, you should keep doing everything that you’re supposed to do. Why would you do anything different when circumstances change? Right?”
This is all that Hardy wants you know no regrets no apologies, no I am sorry for what I did to Nicole Holder nothing. So again someone explain why Goodell didn’t fight the suspension harder, why didn’t the arbitrator support the 10 games if not add more? The arbitrator failed Nicole Holder , so did Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell.But the bottom line is this Greg Hardy doesn’t deserve to be playing football …not now not ever.
