    Longtime WFAA sportscaster Dale Hansen took Hardy, the Cowboys and the NFL to task last night, unmoved by the possibility of double-digit sacks considering Hardy’s previous domestic violence charges. “Is there no crime you won’t accept?” he said at one point, just getting warmed up.

    “You could get one for your sister or daughter and then explain to her that Hardy beats up women, but we’re cheering him now because he’s really good on game day, and game day is all that really matters to me.
    “Your daughter will understand.”

    Hansen made reference to NFL justice as “Barney Fife,” and said coach Jason Garrett is either “a fraud and a hypocrite,” or has no say in the matter and is “a puppet.”

    Classy fellow:

    But in a complaint accompanying her request for a restraining order against Hardy, Holder added compelling details to her version of the fight. They include allegations that an enraged Hardy choked her with both hands and threatened to kill her.

    At one point during their struggle, she said in her complaint that Hardy picked her up and threw her into a tub, then dragged her across the floor by her hair. As Hardy screamed threats, Holder said he lifted her over his head and threw her on a couch “covered in assault rifles and/or shotguns.”

    She said Hardy keeps a cache of 25-30 “AK-47s, automatic-looking weapons, shotguns, rifles and pistols” in his North Tryon condo and a former residence.

    Holder said Hardy threatened to shoot her if “I went to the media or reported his assaults to anyone,” according to her complaint.

    “I begged them to let me go and I wouldn’t tell anyone what he did,” she wrote. “They took me out into the hall, pushed me down and went back inside his apartment.”

    As long as idiots keep watching the league that encourages felons then WGAS? He should get a signing bonus for each conviction.

    Jason Garrett is most definitely a puppet. I love when the Cowboys have a news conference with him and Jerry Jones, Jason just sits there with this stupid smirk on his face acting like he had something to do with the recent transaction, knowing full well that he has zero input.

    As for Hardy, I'm so glad he didn't end up with the Raiders, there were serious talks but the owner and gm decided against it. The media would have had a field day what that one.

    "We have spent a great deal of time over the last two days in meeting with Greg directly and gaining a solid understanding of what he is all about as a person and as a football player. A thorough background review of him, involving many elements of our organization, has been ongoing for the last few weeks.

    "Our organization understands the very serious nature of domestic violence in our society and in our league. We know that Greg has a firm understanding of those issues as well." - Jerry Jones

    The biggest task will be for the babysitters to keep Hardy and Bryant from going to the strip clubs together and getting drunk.

    the weird part is that there will be less hatred for this psychopath than if i had started a Tom Brady thread.

    kind of proves your point.

    I don't care abut felons and scumbags playing in the NFL but if they are included then the NFL should stop with presenting itself as family entertainment and knock it off with the pink gloves for breast cancer awareness. If the fans cared they would simply not attend or watch a few games and make it known why. Until then it is just lipservice and it will be business as usual.

    I was just discussing this situation with several gentlemen. Their unanimous opinion was that it was no big deal and he should be allowed to pursue his craft. They then launched into how unfair it was that Michael Vick got fucked over and had to spend 22 months in jail for killing a dog. I disagreed with these gentleman and voices were instantly raised. It was at this point that I removed myself from the situation as it was inappropriate behavior in the workplace.
