Dallas Cowboys official website — Out of football for the last four weeks, and without any regular-season game action since Week 1 of 2014, Greg Hardy is back.
The Cowboys’ defensive end not only served his four-game suspension from the NFL, but met with the media for the first time since he signed with the club back in March.
To say Hardy seems ready to go would be an understatement. Full of energy, wit, personality and enthusiasm, the defensive end got straight to the point with his first question, which centered on the difficulty of being out for so long. …
“I hope I come out guns blazin’. I’m full of excitement and full of juice,” Hardy said.
Congratulations to Greg Hardy and the Cowboys for this awesome news. Really. Neato, guys. Way to go. It’s so uplifting to hear all about his energy, wit, personality and enthusiasm. Especially coming in the wake of his suspension for what the Cowboys call “domestic abuse charges in 2014 that were later dropped.” Of course that conveniently leaves out minor details such as Hardy being found guilty in a trial that featured a dozen witnesses. He then appealed, and on the day of trial his victim, Nicole Holder, coincidentally found herself on a vacation in the Rockies and couldn’t make it back. But details, details.
But just as a public service, to flesh out the finer points the Cowboys website didn’t have room for, this is from the Charlotte Observer news report of Greg Hardy’s trial:
Hardy, Holder said, flung her from the bed, threw her into a bathtub, then tossed her on a futon covered with rifles. Holder said Hardy ripped a necklace he had given her off her neck, threw it into a toilet and slammed the lid on her arm when she tried to fish it out.
The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Hardy dragged her by the hair room to room, she said, before putting his hands around her throat.
“He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me,” said Holder.
And now he’s ready to come back “guns blazin’ “! Get it? Guns! As in a futon covered with guns! Good one, Greg! He and the Cowboys should have just said he can’t wait to sack Tom Brady into a bathtub of hurt, rip the ball away from him and throw it in a toilet of pain, slam the lid down on his throwing arm or get his hands around his throat and threaten to kill him. That would have been really cool, too.
But the important thing isn’t who was found guilty of abusing whom. The takeaway here is that Hardy is full of excitement and juice and making guns references and the Cowboys are thrilled at his triumphant return. Just don’t stop reminding yourself that we were one Judge Berman decision away from Brady serving the same suspension this abusive, misanthropic, cowardly sociopath just did.
