I know- shut it down, lock it up, but it needs to be said.
The Panthers front office has turned their back on one of their own and has now said it is his option "one he took". The Panthers FO has shown 0 backbone and thrown one of our own under the bus.
Steve Smith assaults a guy (or two) and NEVER have we seen anything like this.
We have caved to public opinion, and its dissapointing.
Let hope Greg can move the trial up and prove all these assholes wrong.
WTF-- FU NFL and FU Ray Rice and AP...
If I am a Panther player i am pretty damn concerned about the fact of my employer having my back....
The only ones who lose out in this deal are his teammates and those fans that support him blindly. While I firmly believe 'innocent until proven guilty', Hardy put himself in this situation. There has to be some level of accountability on his part, he did have a hand in this mess.
True, had the Rice video not gotten out, then it would have been a completely different story, but it did, so everyone must accept that and deal with it. I don't fault the NFL or the Panthers for this situation at all, they were handling it themselves, until the video of Rice came out and then the media came looking for blood. When that happens, you've got to protect your business, be it suspending players or expelling them. Bottom line is the NFL is a business that can't have the image of a league full of woman beaters...sponsors don't like that.
I agree that this whole situation is BS, but to blame the NFL or the Panthers is short sighted, they didn't force Rice to sucker punch his wife. They didn't force Hardy to hang with coked up whores. Blame the DA in NJ who failed to prosecute Rice after seeing the full video. Blame the media for looking for ratings and going on witch hunts.
Let's also keep in mind Hardy is still getting paid, so I can't really feel all that bad for him.......

So what do u do when he is found not guilty?
Ohh my bad Greg. $$$ is more important than class. Hope u understand.
You think Hardy give's a sh*t about class? If he's found not guilty, he gets paid 13 mil to do nothing and then sign another monster deal in 15. If 'class' was something Hardy had, he wouldn't be in this situation, regardless of if he's guilty or not.
