maybe some good news for Hardy

Commissioner Roger Goodell is notoriously heavy-handed when doling out suspensions and fines. The list for violators of the NFL Drug Policy for this year alone is staggering. But he has yet to determine the fate of Ray Rice, who received pre-trial intervention counseling and avoided sentencing.
 
Hardy, however, was convicted and therefore is expected to miss at least four games, according to the NFL's personal conduct policy (via ESPN):
 
"'Persons who fail to live up to (the NFL's) standard of conduct are guilty of conduct detrimental and subject to discipline, even where the conduct itself does not result in conviction of a crime.' Among the listed 'circumstances' in which Goodell can impose discipline is 'domestic violence and other forms of partner abuse.'"
 
I wouldn't count on it being less.

Many fans on both sides of this whole thing have made themselves look absolutely ridiculous.

 

Either they are on a high horse, and declaring his career here over after two misdemeanors, or they are bashing the woman. All in all it's up to Hardy what happens for him in Carolina from this point forward. All these fans who think they personally know JR cannot predict the future.

 

As for a suspension, it's all speculation, nobody knows for sure how many games he would get, if any at all. It's still in the legal process.

I am not defending him and yes I DO have morals...I would never lay a hand on my wife or any woman...just walk away.I am talking about the punishment for a domestic violence assault from the NFL...period. And there is such a thing as compassion and forgiveness...look it up it is in your Christian bible.

Except Rice AND his wife were arrested. Stop defending the man just because he's a panther, it's fuging disgusting. Have some damn morals, it's just a damn football team.

Uh you were trying to defend rice in that other thread

My ex wife put me in the hospital because I wouldn't lay a hand on her. Try going into work with two black eyes, a concussion and a broken hand just to have your supervisor force you to go to the ER because you tried to "walk away." How about all of you guys stop trying to pretend you have any idea what he was going through.

lol Rice drills his wife and gets 2 games. Gordon smokes some weed and gets a year ban. I fail to see how cold clocking a girl is not as bad as smoking weed.

You really want to keep him after you add up everything he has had happen and what we know about him being a little off?

 

I love the player Hardy is. He is easy to root for on the football field. But let's not kid ourselves he may not be guilty of what he was convicted of but he isn't 100% innocent and its only a matter of time before there is something else.

 

yea if Kony Ealy performs well this season, i say they cut ties with both Hardy and Big Money. unless Big Money wants to restructure for a cap-friendly deal... they can search for another DE gem in the 2015 draft to replace him if he is unwilling to do that. hopefully Kony will perform well enough to give them enough reason to let Hardy walk. 

 

dont get me wrong, if Big Boss Cat, NippleShorts, and Riverboat think that Hardy has turned a corner and has truly learned from his mistakes, i think they should try to retain him. even if Kony performs and even if they can work something out with Big Money

I more of a lurker than poster here but I cannot not comment here.

 

Don't you think you're being a bit unfair to Hardy at this time. I have no idea what happened that night but until he's actually found guilty (on appeal) don't you think he deserves the benefit of doubt. I don't ever recall him being involved in any other domestic disputes so it's not like he has a history with it so why are you so quick to dismiss him.

Ray Rice got a lesser suspension on technicality. He and his "wife" conspired so that he would not get convicted and therefor lessened his suspension. Hardy "threw" a girl on a couch while Rice knocked his then fiance out cold. I believe that any suspension higher than Rice's will be immediately appealed and won by Hardy.

Legal procedures aren't done, I don't expect any suspension this year for Hardy.

So after she gave you one black eye you stood there and took another shot? Unless she double hammer fisted you I don't see how you could have not have left the situation.
