In Topic: D Will says Panthers didn't reach out to him when his mother died

He has no reason to lie about something like this, therefore I have no choice but to believe him.


Lying? No. Stretching the truth because of bias? Yes.

He needs to stop attention whoring and just move on. I don't expect my employer to care about my personal life. I'm there to do a job. His mom was honored in many different way and he made millions working for the organization. If not for Hurney giving him a loyalty contract he would have been gone after 2010. What more should he expect?

Jefferson played over his head last season. He's on the downside now.

In Topic: An attorney's perspective: What will likely happen to Hardy from a legal...

"Many following the Hardy case, including attorneys such as myself, have learned about an oddity of the criminal justice system in North Carolina."

That is lawyer speak for "I am speaking out my arse."

Once you read that line, you know the article is worthless. This 'oddity' he speaks of is called a 'Trial de Novo'.

There is no conviction no matter how you spin it. Once more... There is no conviction. A conviction can be obtained in a district court bench trial for misdemeanors only if the defendant agrees to the ruling - a.k.a. admits guilt.

And please make sure to note that this is about a misdemeanor and not a felony. There is a big difference. If the justice system had any evidence of physical harm perpetrated by Greg Hardy, then this would be tried as a felony. Why do people just glaze over this very important detail.

And since the lawyer in the article failed to identify the actual legal event and left out any citation of a legal case, I will leave you with these eye opening legal decisions regarding the guilty verdict that does not exist or hold any weight.

“it is as if the case had been brought there originally and there had been no previous trial.
“The judgment appealed from is completely annulled and is not thereafter available for any purpose.”
- State v. Sparrow, 276 N.C. 499, 507 (1970)

The United States Supreme Court defines a district court's guilty conviction in a trial de novo system as “no more than an offer in settlement.”
- Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104, 119 (1972)

The North Carolina Supreme Court states, "The purpose of our de novo procedure is to provide all criminal defendants charged with misdemeanor violations the right to a ‘speedy trial’ in the District Court and to offer them an opportunity to learn about the State’s case without revealing their own. In the latter sense, this procedure can be viewed as a method of ‘free’ criminal discovery."
- Brooks, 287 N.C. at 406.

Legally correct if you are a judge or lawyer in a North Carolina courtroom. The NFL is governed by a collective bargaining agreement which gives Roger Goodell the power to do basically whatever the hell he wants to regardless of any judicial outcome. The only reason they wait out the judicial process is to determine the strength of the evidence for their own investigation. In this case, I have a feeling they will find enough "evidence" to satisfy the standard of the CBA and suspend Hardy despite the dismsissal of his charges.

What a disaster this guy is. We could literally acquire almost any other player in the league to give us 8 points and 4 rebounds on 4/15 shooting night in and night out.

I tried warning people Lance is just a flashier version of Gerald Henderson. They are the worst shooting wings in the NBA. They are even worse than MKG.


Henderson and MKG have been miles better tjan Lance this year. At this point Lance's offensive skills are comparable to Ben Wallace but without the defensive presence.
