Greg Hardy drinking......

Some of you don't get the point. He is a professional athlete in the middle of training camp. Has nothing to do with whether or not it is wrong or right. This kind of stuff comes off as him not taking things seriously and displays a pattern of risky behavior that an athlete who is paid millions to play a game shouldn't partake in.

I don't even see the problem of the tweeting/instagraming of it.

Is it endagering anyone else's life?

Is it effecting his play?

If it's doing anything it's hurting his image but some players just don't care about their image and at his point he shouldn't care because he isn't a big enough star to be a role model anyway.

I feel like a lot of people on this board really hated Charles Barkley growing up lol...

Just let it go.

In both cases, he was probably with a group of people that all ordered shots. It is not reasonable to assume that he intends to drink all these by himself.

Some of you act as though every player should do nothing more than go home and study film in their downtime. They are rich, young, successful men. They deserve to have some fun.

They shouldn't post it then, they're letting us into their personal life

In all seriousness, who cares? It's his life and his career.

I don't know how many athletes I've followed on twitter that have posted similar things... Most of the ones that care about their public image don't, but some really great players in the NBA and NFL that aren't "spotlight" players per se, do it all of the time.

If he wants to get wasted, have at it.

it would take a lot of cocaine or a decent amount of meth for me to be able to drink that much by myself at his age

which is pure speculation of course
