#2961347 Panthers Front Office has lost it!

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 04:53 PM

Would not have mattered if it was the team or the league- the league and NFLPA definition of a "suspension" would have gotten a grievance by the NFLPA. The team nor the league has a legal leg to stand on to- by definition- suspend him.

 

This Commissioner's exempt list is the new way of being able to do this kind of crap. Kind of like the NFL's version of the Patriot Act. "We can do whatever we want under the guise of 'personal conduct'."

 

More like a way to get him to agree to this without kicking up a fuss.

 

The team was going to keep playing him.  Rivera said that last week and Gettleman confirmed it today.  But the NFL needed him to go away because of their current PR nightmares.

 

So they tell him "We'll suspend you with or without pay, your choice" knowing exactly what choice he'd make.

 

The same choice any of us would make.

I'm disappointed in Rivera, DG, and JR.

 

Why?  What choice did they have?

And I'm saying if they did I think they'd get an immediate appeal by the NFLPA.

 

Which keeps the story in the news, exactly what the League doesn't want.

 

Gettleman said the team was definitely not going to suspend him (specifically said suspension "was not on the table") so the League then comes to Hardy and the team and says "Look, you're going away one way or the other.  You want it paid or unpaid?"  Hardy wisely chooses 'paid'.

 

 

That makes sense.  Surely, avoiding the NFLPA has something to do with it, right?

 

Definitely.

How does it work better for the NFL?   So they don't have to deal with the NFLPA?

 

Hardy goes home, gets paid, and shuts up.
 

They want these stories out of the spotlight.

Thats MY point... ZERO balls by our FO...

 

Not once did they clarify their stance....

 

it basically was "we are forced into this-- it sucks-- there is no rule book"  WTFE

 

Saying "suspension was never on the table for us" is a pretty clear statement of their stance.

Rivera is testy.

 

Edit: And now gone.

 

Man, he walked off pissed and someone had him come back.

Misinformed.

 

If you listened to what Gettleman said, it's pretty clear the NFL didn't give them a choice.

 

Gettleman said suspension was never an option for the team.

Gettleman tried not to say it, but I think he let it slip out that the NFL forced this on the team.

jones says it starts at 3:30.

 

Probably starts when they can get Rivera calmed down enough to keep him from strangling the first reporter that pisses him off.

I expect to see a megapissed Ron Rivera.

 

Watching this presser might set your screen on fire.




#2960592 Hardy on Exempt List

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 01:50 PM

so what if he doesn't? No paycheck? I didn't think players were given an option to agree

 

The Exempt list is paid.

 

A league suspension is not.
 




#2960518 Hardy on Exempt List

Posted by Mr. Scot on Today, 01:38 PM

And a little bit of fug you to JR and DG has to be assigned

 

I don't think this was their choice.

 

Rivera said last week that Hardy was gonna play from here on out.

I'm hoping Newton calls Roethlisberger "QBert" or something.

 

I'd actually welcome a discussion like that again over what we're seeing now.
