New Deadspin story on Greg Hardy

    They got hold of hundreds of pages of documents and photos from his assault case in North Carolina. Pretty incredible (and graphic) stuff:

    It's amazing this guy remains in the NFL (well, not really, but you know what I mean). Meanwhile, Ray Rice has shown remorse, taken steps to turn his life around and remains a pariah.

    Video trumps all, once again.

    I wonder if anybody here predicted that Rice would never play another down in the NFL.

    Sadly, no. Viability trumps all. Rice had a lot of miles on the odometer and was on the decline. That's why he's a pariah.

    If Aaron Rodgers was on video punching his wife unconscious, Aaron Rodgers would never play another down in the NFL.

    Falls right in line with his "Support the Domestic Abuser" career arch.

    We all saw photos of Adrian Peterson's son and he plays. Things like this are no different than the guy in Sales getting a free pass for whoring, driving drunk and abusing the expense account when he's having million-dollar years. He only gets canned once the headaches outweigh his performance.

    To evoke Jerry Tarkanian, Hardy is Kentucky, Rice is Cleveland State.

    Good for Deadspin; here's hoping that more outrage comes from this and that clown/bully Hardy is drummed out of the league ASAP. What a tough guy taking it out on a woman.

    Peterson wasn't on video beating the kid. Also, a lot of people - perhaps even a majority of Americans - thought that Peterson was in the right in that situation. Hardly anyone would say the same about Rice. If Adrian Peterson punched his wife out in an elevator, on camera, his career would have ended the second it went public.

    gospell truth.

    If Goodell didn't shit the bed on Tom Brady he'd havr some balls left to do something. And Jerry Jones is an ignorant fuck who gets an all time pass from his media business partners.

    BTW anyone seen this movie before: African American star football player, white girlfriend named Nicole. Beatings
