#2962324 The Greg Hardy thread....for everything Hardy related

Posted by Panthers_Lover on Yesterday, 09:48 AM

God this infuriates me and I hope it does the team also. How did this all happen? I mean, what made this so big? A video of RAY RICE hitting his fiancé came out and all the sudden domestic abuse is a bigger topic then a virus that has killed 2500 people, a terrorist group who has executed 2 Americans and a UK man, and a nuclear rich country with strong tensions against our country.

I swear people get dumber by the day, and I wish all the nosy people would let the family handle the situation in private. It's no one else's business but them, and the police if necessary.

Some retard on the ESPN comment page said "Hardy threatened to kill his girlfriend and would have had she testified". I swear people are so fuging stupid and self-righteous now it's insane and I can't help getting pissed off about it. I wish we could just watch and hear about football instead of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and Greg Hardy's personal lives.

 

A few facts for you about this worthless topic of domestic abuse, a topic that just needs to be kept in the family, kept private:

 

  • In the United States, researchers estimate the 40 percent to 70 percent of female murder victims were killed by their husbands or boyfriends, frequently in the context of an ongoing abusive relationship.
  • According to the FBI, a woman is battered every 15 seconds.
  • 2 million to 4 million American women are abused each year.
  • White, Black, Hispanic & Non-Hispanic women have equivalent rates of violence committed by intimate partners.
  • Nearly 1/2 of men who abuse their female partners, also abuse their children.
  • Up to 50% of homeless women and children in this country are fleeing domestic violence.
  • Studies show that women face the greatest risk of assault when they leave or threaten to leave their partners, or report the abuse to authorities.



#2957212 Peter King busted

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 16 September 2014 - 08:51 AM

see, that's just it.  The testimony is not out there because transcripts are not Standard Operating Procedure in NC bench trials, that is proof positive of the significance of a "guilty" verdict in a bench trial.  In this case there is reportedly a transcript only because Hardy's lawyers paid for one .... so that they could have "testimony" that would be admissible in either the jury trial or the expected civil suits later.

 

You (and perhaps Peter King, although I don't think he thought about it as much as you have) are confusing reporting with testimony, it is not the same thing.  Bill Voth's interpretation of court comments is not "testimony".

 

Listen ... I was a reporter and editor for 20+ years. I am not confused. I've covered court, and I've quoted testimony. You are playing semantics. If someone testifies in a trial -- bench trial or not -- and I'm a news reporter covering that trial, I can write that the person "testified that ...." whatever. That's what news reporters do. I don't have to wait until I get a transcript to be able to report that.




#2945971 Hardy was tried in the wrong court. It's not domestic.

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 12 September 2014 - 03:39 PM

People! People! Lend me have your ears!

 

If Hardy and the woman don't live together, have no child together and not married, it's not domestic violence. It's a criminal case. It doesn't go to family court. Living together means receiving her mail there or living in a family type setting(this part can be hesay shesay). Else she's just a visitor or friend. It's just considered a fight between two person. A men and a woman fighting doesn't automatically mean it's domestic. Somebody should contact Hardy's lawyer. Wait till the media wake up to that fact.

 

No one can prove a relationship other than the 3 facts I've listed. If Hardy's lawyer doesn't bring up that point he's in cahoot with the woman. Hardy should have been in criminal court getting probation and be free like a bird to roam the street and play football on Sundays. They tried him in the wrong court. What the hell is going on in the south!

 

NC law says "domestic violence" applies to, among other things (of course):

 

"... persons of the opposite sex who are in a dating relationship or have been in a dating relationship. For purposes of this subdivision, a dating relationship is one wherein the parties are romantically involved over time and on a continuous basis during the course of the relationship. A casual acquaintance or ordinary fraternization between persons in a business or social context is not a dating relationship."

 

I would say that the definition of "over time and on a continuous basis" need more definition.

#2881492 PSLs

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 08 August 2014 - 12:49 PM

There are literally no benefits, unless you're Jerry Richardson. It greatly benefits him, mainly his wallet. You have to pay the thousands of dollars for the PSL (for every individual seat) plus the normal price for season tickets. Then you buy season tickets every single year thereafter. And you have to buy season tickets every single year or they take away your PSL and sell it to someone else, and you lose all of that money. You pay a ridiculous amount of money to feel entitled and feel special and walk around saying "I'm a PSL owner!" About the only benefit I see is being able to keep the exact same seat every year, but that's also a negative. If you just buy season tickets you can switch up sections every year and view the stadium from different angles.

Why anyone would pay throw away all that money for nothing is beyond me. And it's not like the tickets will ever become UNC-Duke @ Cameron levels of expensive and hard to get. There will always be seats reserved for season tickets and individual purchase. You'll always be able to get in the stadium anytime you please.

Don't let them tell you "well when the team wins a Super Bowl and tickets are 500% face value it'll be worth it." No it won't. It all evens out because you're still having to buy all those tickets when the team is 2-14 and the laughing stock of the league.

My dad bought a pair of PSLs in '95. He paid nearly $20k for 2 PSLs and has paid fill price for season tickets (full price for all preseason games also) for 20 years now. All those losing seasons, '01 1-15 & '10 2-14 teams that were unwatchable included, and he still had to fork over the money just to keep from losing his PSLs. Whereas I didn't buy PSLs, and I've never even bought season tickets because you have to pay full price for 2 preseason games. I've been to all but 5 games in Charlotte since '96. And I didn't have to buy PSLs or season tickets. Yeah, last year and this year I'll be paying a bit over face value, but all those years the team sucked I either got tickets for a fraction of the cost, and a lot of times people just gave them to me. I've sat in about every upper and lower level section and seen the stadium from all angles. Whereas my father has paid out of his ass every year and sees the games from the same seat every year.

Don't be a sucker.

 

I've been a PSL owner since the beginning (first wave), and I respectfully disagree with you.

SPARTANBURG, S.C.  – Every summer since 1995, football fans from all over the country have staked their claim on a grassy hill above Wofford College’s football practice fields in the hopes of seeing stars.

 

This summer, for the 20th time, those fans – many now very seasoned in their fandom and bringing along a new generation – will flock to the campus to see a well-seasoned football team, the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. It’s a team that went from an expansion franchise awarded in 1993 and playing its first season in 1995 at Clemson’s Death Valley, to playing in Super Bowl XXXVIII in the 2003 campaign, to a two-decades-old team that boasts fans from around the world.

 

Without Jerry Richardson, a 1959 Wofford graduate and member of the board of trustees, none of it would be possible.

 

On Monday, May 12, the Wofford Board of Trustees honored Richardson, the only NFL owner to have played in the league, and recognized the upcoming 20th anniversary of summer training camp on the campus by dedicating a sculpture of Richardson. The sculpture, created by noted California artist Todd Andrews, stands on the patio of the Harley Room in the Richardson Physical Activities Building – depicting Richardson seeming to be ready to walk over to Gibbs Stadium to watch the Terriers – for which he also played – take on the next worthy opponent.

#2747009 And again... TSA is a waste of money

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 22 April 2014 - 11:29 AM

I think the point of the OP is that the chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If someone can get to the airplanes as easily as this 16-year-old did, then no amount of security up front is going to do any good whatsoever. (I think the OP wasn't saying TSA failed in its job to secure the perimeter.)




#2650496 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 11 February 2014 - 03:58 PM

When is the last time you saw a heterosexual player hold a news conference to tell everyone he is heterosexual?

 

They don't have to ... they are able to exhibit their heterosexual "lifestyle" through their everyday lives. Being seen out and about with their women, holding hands, kissing, etc. The same cannot be true of a homosexual player who isn't "out."




#2650150 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 11 February 2014 - 10:54 AM

LP did you ever play high school  or college football or basketball on a men's team?

 

I'm absolutely certain there were lesbians in my junior high and high school gym classes, therefore in the locker room when I was changing my clothes and ... oh, my gosh ... NAKED in front of them. Never worried me at all. Didn't fear they would turn me into a lesbian. Never worried that they were "eye fugging me" (whatever that is). Never intimidated me at all.

 

It's so sad that there are so many insecure, homophobic men out there, and on this board.




#2649188 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 10 February 2014 - 04:26 PM

HAHAHAHAHA!

 

I'm sorry man, it's just I expected better.  There's no difference between objectifying a naked person vs a clothed person.  HAHAHAHAHA!  That's funny.

 

Objectifying is objectifying ... and I'm no man.
