Deangelo Williams reported that the only person from the entire organization who attended his mother's funeral was Greg Hardy. Im listening to the radio today and they’re saying how bizarre that sounds.
The Panthers organization has done a lot to present itself as a family oriented team… as if we always take the moral high ground… unless… money is involved. This isn’t about how great a guy Greg Hardy is. But he’s certainly not the demon the media has made him out to be. This is about hypocrisy. Hardy has been vilified as if he was the second coming of Rae Carruth.
Its easy to make someone a polarizing figure. Its easy to make every situation black and white. I really see it as a blessing in disguise. Maybe this information coming out will shed Carolina’s desire to continue promulgating the illusion of moral superiority. You can be family friendly and still business savvy. Bringing Greg Hardy back is the right business move and the right thing to do... for the right price.
I know that there is little faith that Greg Hardy will be back… but you would think that by now, with DWill and Bell spilling the beans, that Greg would have said something about it by now. Keep in mind that players are trying to fight for Greg Hardy to come back and now I think we are getting a bigger glimpse of why.
When we drafted Deangelo, I said, he will be the best back Carolina has had. He will have a better career than Reggie Bush. Dwill will be missed, but it’s the move that they had to make.
