That's the thing though. you don't have to love him or hate him. People that are filtering it through that notion are completely missing the point.
I'm fine if he's brought back. I'm also fine if he isn't.
If you're able to look at the situation objectively, there's way more evidence that he won't be back than there is that he will. It's reality. Scenarios people are posting like the league apologizing to Hardy or giving money back to the Panthers or the Panthers actually franchising Hardy again are just delusional.
Some on here don't seem to be able to accept that because they love Hardy the Panther, but they need to realize that after March "Hardy the Panther" may no longer exist.
Hardy is not going to give money back. That's nonsense. Nor will the team franchise him.
I don't have strong feelings either way as to whether or not he should be a Panther.
My problem is with the league letting a player and our team bear the brunt of good ole Rodger's fug up. And I also see too many here that seem to want to fry the guy. All of us, and I do mean all, have made mistakes in our lives. Those mistakes should not necessarily define us forever.
There are those on this board that seem to take an inordinate amount of pleasure in the misfortunes of others. Not just as it relates to Hardy, but every NFL player that finds himself in trouble. I'm not a religious man, but my recollection is the bible says something about throwing the first stone.
Take it for what you will.
