You’ve seen where the Dallas Cowboys have signed Greg Hardy.
It’s an interesting signing because there were several teams that weren’t interested in signing him. Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said so out loud when the Raiders were cited as a team interested in Hardy:
“False, falser and falsest,” Davis told this newspaper. “That is not true.”
Jerry Jones released a statement on Hardy’s signing:
“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.”
Dude’s clown car never stops. The Cowboys aren’t serious about anything other than acquiring players, and now that Stephen Jones is running the show, cramming the players under the cap at terms advantageous to the team.
This afternoon, NFL Radio talked about how the media seems to be in an uproar over the signing while the fans are okay with it. Ridiculous.
Of course the fans are okay with it! Cowboysfan is blind to anything other than wins. Jerry Jones isn’t going to have his fans desert the team over bad player behavior. If they would, they already have. Hardy isn’t the first convict (and yes, he was convicted) to play for the Cowboys. Heck, he isn’t the only felon on their defense right now. It isn’t a problem for that franchise. If O.J. had anything left, the Cowboys would have been trying to get him on work release.
The media here is pretending it doesn’t exist.
I’m not too sure how Cowboysfan would feel about a regular person – a non-football player – who did what Hardy did. I suspect if they live down here, they’d want that dude to get serious time. But no, he’s a Cowboys player. We must love him:
“He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me,” said the accuser, a 24-year-old cocktail waitress in downtown Charlotte. “I was so scared I wanted to die. When he loosened his grip slightly, I said just, ‘Do it. Kill me.'”
