Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith has an underrated sense of humor.
This morning, he pointed his barbs at defensive end Greg Hardy.
Monday, Hardy thought it would be cute to take a picture of the speedometer of his Bentley at 100 mph.
Apologists and “managers” rallied to his defense, trying to create legal alibis that didn’t pass any sentient being’s sniff test, suggesting he might have been having his car tested on a dynamometer. Yeah, sure he was.
Hardy, who wrecked a motorcycle last year before camp, was doing something dumb, and made it worse by advertising it to the world on Twitter. He’s lucky he didn’t cause an accident.
Smith doesn’t have a Twitter account, but made sure to get the word out. He took a photo of his own Bentley speedometer (which he can more easily afford than a sixth-rounder on a rookie deal) doing a solid 26 mph.
He then apparently texted it to most of roster (at least three teammates, Ryan Kalil, Jon Beason and Jonathan Stewart tweeted it out), with the caption.”Smitty heading to work out slow and steady.”
Message delivered. With a little luck, Hardy gets it.
