Its not a punishment. These guys all got a year off work from a physically grueling job. In Hardy's case he got paid to rest and recuperate. There is no telling how many years this time off has added to their careers.
They are all going to be fresh and ready to go for their new teams next year.
Davidson County man and Wake Forest fan who goes by Davidson Deac II wins lottery and buys the Carolina Panthers.
If this happens it is a golden opportunity. Don't fug it up. Also, hire me as GM. I once won 8 consecutive Super Bowls in Madden. 4 of which included Musin Muhammad as head coach. My game is serious man.
lol It's funny I think we at the huddle are starting to get like Beat writers trying to break a story. *I say that because I saw it 30 seconds after it dropped and somehow you beat me to it.
Anywho well he's not really throwing his life away, at this point his salary has been that of which many could only DREAM of. If he lives within his means he'll be more than well off and set for the rest of his life. Now his career...down the drain.
A few weeks ago ppl were talking about either him or J. Blackmon coming here and I was on the side of giving people 3rd and 4th chances lol....good thing I'm only a GM in Madden.
There is no better source of fan based information than the huddle. I truly believe that the top tier posters on here are better analyst than the guys who get paid to be on TV and do it.
The community here is so deep and rich that it's no wonder that we have so many rival fans that come here to troll and end up staying for the content and conversation.
With the way this site is run it pays to be an amateur beat writer. Quality post often end up in the top search results for a subject on Google.
