Just my opinion but i believe that TB makes a mistake if they select Marcus Mariota over Jameis Winston. I feel the character issue situation surrounding Winston is overblown and from all i have seen and heard about him, his QB skillset translaates better to the NFL than Mariota's.
I'm sorry and I know Hardy is considered Panther related but........enough is enough. Maybe one of you mods could combine it all into one thread. I'm really tired of hearing about it. Okay, I'm going to bed. Flame away.
If Goodell attempts to suspend hardy the players union should raise enough holy hell to get him removed from office, or sue his rearend off. This he said-she said case should have been dropped day one by the woman judge.
Since it wasn't, Hardy appealed,which meant by NC laws he was not guilty unless he was deemed so by a jury. The accuser did not show up for the trial and because the case was already settled out of court, it was dismissed.
There is no way the NFL could be dumb enough to suspend a player a number of games over a case that was dismissed,just because a person ACCUSED them of something.
There is no way Hardy hurt the image of the NFL, if what he was ACCUSED of was false The NFL and Goodell are beginnig to look more and more inept, as they attempt to make the public believe a player has to be a saint and live a sheltered life, for the sake of their supposed image.
