How many of you guys would be bitching about not getting paid enough if you made $700,000 a year? Much less $700,000 a year over a 6 month work schedule.
Greg Hardy is an immature manchild losing fans everyday

It's all relative in the end. We can't compare our wants, desires, or financial requirements to NFL players and it seems like a lot of the one's making millions don't see it 'the normal way' either. In Greg's world he's severely underpaid. I really liked watching him bloom over the past few years and I like having him on our team. However at this point, like others have said, it doesn't matter. The money we save and the positions we can augment because of it, plus the work we can do in the draft will continue to make us a more balanced team. I believe that our DE rotation will find some one to step up across from CJ. I also believe that we will be able to find another young guy to start grooming this summer. This next batch will be better because hopefully once the next guy comes into his prime, CJ will be wrapping up and then we can sign the next guy to a good deal and hopefully from then on have an even DE payload.
It's all about the cycle and we're getting close to finding the right groove.
Wherever Greg ends up, we need a new young OT who can negate him and hopefully we'll have one this summer.

This is the worst reply I saw. Most fans are fans for more than just their on field play. What they do off the field gains then more respect and fans or turns off more people. I love me some krsken but smf said it right. Once is enough, people know what he wants. He's beginning to look like a douche. I hope he goes and brings us some picks. He's not worth top de money.
You know what your problem is? You give a fug about what he is doing outside of football. Who gies a poo?
I am a football fan and Panther fan. I don't care about choir boys on the team, or badasses, or dumbasses, or greedy mutherfugers. These guys aren't dating my sister. Play good football and I'm in.
Stop involving yourself with the personal life of the players and start enjoying the game for what it is.
It's kind of like actors and hollywood. If they can act and make a good film, nice. Don't deprive enjoying it because you don't like their personal life. Who the fug cares, you have no personal connection with them.

Greg Hardy should let his agent take care of the business end and let said agent perform the job he is being paid to do.No matter how much Greg talks about wanting a vast sum of money, if he thinks he will break the bank, it will be with another team and not the Panthers. G man is not Hurney, so Hardy be aware.

Pepper greatness? Peppers was never great just flashes.
He is 25 years old. This will most likely be his biggest contract of his career. Should he slow down on the chatter? Yes, but the man should be paid.
I ain't mad at him. He's worked hard, now comes the payoff.

Tag and trade. that's all I have to say about this topic.

I see like one or two tweets over the past month that vaguely reference money. One was a retweet of the article and the other a retweet of a fan saying he should cash in.
I agree it is tacky but not out of place for these guys
He's been doing it way more than just the past month, it's all over his Instagram too. And the whole gist of any interview he's given since October is KRAKEN WANT MONEY.

Soooo…. your first time actually watching a high profile player during a contract negotiation? get over yourself.
I said right after the season ended that there were going to be quit a few fans that are going to take things way too personal when they start getting to the negotiating contracts and look at you.
Greg Hardy is about to hit the lottery he knows it(it's also something he's worked very hard for) heck everyone in the NFL knows it, he's excited about this and I would be excited about this if I was in his shoes and so would you. pretending otherwise is purely laughable. this same type of animosity towards people was going around during the lockout when it was millionaires versus billionaires, guys quit bitching because someone is going to make more money then you could ever dream of spending it's straight up being a cry baby.
with all that said I say it's highly likely that hardy is leaving here and I give the chances of him actually staying at maybe 10% but c'est la vie, and this isn't the first time that something like this has happened(remember Moose) and it won't be the last.
I've made it clear in almost every post of mine in this thread that I don't care if Hardy wants as much money as possible. Unless you're the guy who created Flappy Bird, you're going to do the same thing. This thread is entirely in response to how he's gone about doing it. Also, can you name another player that's gone on and on and on and on and on about money like Hardy has? You say this happens in every contract negotiation, let's see a list then.

Why do people who aren't about to get a crap load of money always have so much to say about people who are? After all his hard work he deserves to get paid, and he is excited about it. If I were 25 and about to become a multimillionaire I'd be fugin' excited too.

Again, name me some other players that have done this then. IF they exist, they're probably universally disliked.
