This was always going to happen. Trial dates in NC mean nothing, there are cases that have been waiting YEARS. There's a good chance it continues to get pushed back and doesn't happen until late 2015 or even 2016.
I hope it gets pushed back to 2037 and Hardy never gets to play again. That motherfuger screwed us with his dumbassery and I hope he winds up broke and on the street before 2016 gets here.
