In Topic: Star Witness may no-show in Hardy case

04 February 2015 - 01:31 PM

She is an adult. She doesn't have to tell people what she does or where she's going. She doesn't even have to appear in court for nearly a week.

This is about as over-dramatic as people crying that Carolina is gonna let Cam walk because they didn't give him an extension after his 3rd of 5 seasons on his rookie deal.


Most attorneys want to go over the facts of the case to prepare a witness to testify and be cross examined. Any prosecutor that has an unprepared witness get on the stand is one incorrect answer away from blowing his case. The fact that the witness can't be located is a valid concern for any attorney.

True we will always disagree in regards to a game of competition.

Ted Turner once won a Yacht sailing race by sailing through the night because there was no rule against it, but no one did. Everyone called it cheating where I call it smart and tenacious.

Elections have been won by picking up vans full of voters and bringing them to vote where the competition didnt, going the extra mile.

Trainers once figured out that squatting just before a 100 meter race gave .10 off the times. Made the difference between 9.95 and 10.05. Unfair advantage and no integrity? Not in my book.

If the balls were done legally without breaking any rules, it was innovative but no doubt will cause a rule change.

So we will agree to disagree. On a further note,

A debate is just a disagreement however I still respect your point of view.

Calling someone like myself, a Marine veteran like my father and grandfather and great grandfather someone with no integrity would be crossing the line.

Take care


I respect your point of view as well. I was referring to the Pats or people who find ways to subvert the rules when it has a negative impact on other people - not you specifically. I don't know you well enough to make that determination. I'd like to think if you you gave me your word and shook my hand on something, then that would be important and binding to you. However, since it isn't a written contract and you're a fan of loopholes if it suites your purpose, should I trust/believe you?

I guess it's a hot button for me because I have dealt with so many people in the sales/marketing industry that will screw you over as easily as they say good morning. It's sickening to know your boss and/or coworkers are completely untrustworthy because they're always looking for the easy way to rip someone off instead of simply putting in the work and becoming good at their job. It's a primary reason I went into business for myself nearly 13 years ago and the shady guys with no integrity rode the wave until they were exposed and faded away. Looking for a loophole to legally be dishonest isn't my style and I have a sincere disdain for people who live that way. That's just me....

Hardy feels sorry for Hardy

Cry for attention


I simply don't understand comments like this. It seems like a similar cry for attention....perhaps you feel sorry for you as well?

Second, as smart as these guys are, I look for the ways they circumvented the rules to come out which will exonerate any rule breaking, even if the outcome was the same.


Then forget about just the punishment, my second as above is respecting a track record of doing things smart. This would be RETARDED. At that point I would lose all respect. You know you are under scrutiny constantly.

Everyone still pissed off, but no rule broken technically and therefore not guilty--

Thats smart just like the crazy formations or running around an endzone to run a clock out. No rule against it.

So thats me-- hate if you want to. I am a Patriot hater-- but a fan of getting over on rules without technically breaking them. Thats the attorney in me.


I guess these comments are my biggest fundamental difference you and I. You think circumventing the rules and finding ways to cheat without getting caught make you smart. I think it makes you an A**hole with no integrity, that can never be trusted, will never be respected, and basically a miserable human being.

Of course, and since the media didnt make a big deal out of it, there must have been no knowledge or wrongdoing by the staff,...right?


You make too many assumptions that aren't based off anything but your speculation. Just because you believe something may be true, doesn't make it true.
