He just comes off like a Ricky Williams type to me. I don't think he's lazy. I think he just has other things he wants to do and football is just a means to an end. He'll miss the game when it's gone though and regret he wasted an opportunity to be truly great and remembered.

Domestic violence is a reoccurring issue in the NFL......and no, all the women don't look like a 6 yr old that tangled with The Incredible Hulk. So saying the chicks should look mangled if it "really" happened isn't worth getting into.
Also, the chick being sketchy doesn't mean you can disregard his guilty verdict as bogus
No that makes him guilty based on a single judge's verdict. That doesn't mean he actually committed the act, thus being guilty of what he was convicted.
I don't really care about her sketchy past, only her actions on the night of the offense. And domestic violence in the NFL should not factor in this case either. Based on what was presented, I can not agree that Greg Hardy is guilty of assaulting this woman.
And if you don't think she should have more than a few bruises on the chest and arms after being beaten by Greg Hardy, then not sure what else to say. No swelling, no scars. Even if he just slapped her, her face would be swollen for days - at least.
And I'm not really playing devil's advocate, just pointing out the stupidity of some of what's being said here.
I'd be willing to bet few if any on this board ever even heard this judge's name before today, but now she's branded because she convicted a player on my favorite team of a crime (which he actually may have committed, not that it seems to matter to anyone much).
The vast majority of the people who know with absolute certainty what happened here really only needed a single detail. Hardy plays for the Panthers. If he played for the Saints or the 49ers the same people would probably be cheering right now.
Domestic violence is a messy, nasty thing, and the simplistic approach some folks take to it just makes it all that much worse.
You have valid points here. But why not answer the question, what do you think happened?
And since when is it unheard of for a wealthy young man to date an attractive young lady? Then, when he finds out she is complete bat crazy (and that's saying a lot coming from Greg Hardy), he decides to leave her? But, she won't let him go. So, he plays her along and has sex with her on occasion. Minus all the drugs involved, I don't see this as something far fetched at all, and possibly a situation I could have found myself at that age.
So, the real question/concern is did he beat her up and threaten her on the night in question? I can not make myself believe he did based on what I've seen before the trial and during it.
I hope I'm wrong, but from what I've seen coming up to this hearing and during it, this young man was completely railroaded.
And for what? This judge will likely see Holder in her court again for similar reasons.
And in the meantime, Greg's life is forever altered. His career is forever altered. He is now a felon and will be attached to domestic violence for the rest of his life. Saying he got off easy is bull. If the judge really thought he was guilty, the sentence would have reflected it. And that doesn't even take into account that he'll likely end up paying this nut job $1 million for her trouble.
