Fans of indoor team vote “no” on Greg Hardy signing

Indoor football fans in Utah, it seems, are just like the NFL.

They don’t want to bother with Greg Hardy either.

Via ESPN, the fans of the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles of the Indoor Football League voted against adding the former Panthers and Cowboys defensive end.

The team said it would sign Hardy provided fans approved in an online vote. And while the team app showed a fairly even split of fans, a trophy was put next to the no column, which should keep him out.

It’s a another speed bump for Hardy in his redemption tour, which has clumsily waded through the NFL, some MMA training and soon the Spring League in West Virginia. He keeps talking about being a changed man, while never quite owning some of his past mistakes including the domestic violence arrest in Charlotte which was settled out of court and eventually dismissed.

So while Hardy was ready to play for the team Friday night against the Colorado Crush, yet another group of people has decided they’re not all that interested in seeing him play.

  1. No way he was going to win in the court of public opinion, the public can’t be bought off like the accuser was.

  2. I have to think the publicity given this online vote is what sunk him. yesterday afternoon it was 64% yes. Until the story was picked up and the vote turned.
    Was it only “fans” voting? How can one be sure it wasnt random people jumping on the site and voting no?

  3. I like the idea of FANS Voting about players punishments….Fans are much more level-headed, and know the differnece between RIGHT & WRONG, and stupid and good ideas for tweeking the rules. Owners and the commsioner in the NFL don’t know how to do it. It’s a great idea the let the fans vote.

  4. What the hell is the Indoor Football League?

    And can we completely eliminate all Greg Hardy talk, permanently??????????????

  5. There sure is a war on women with these athletes. Why is that?? They have little value women. They cat call them with obscene crap and break bones in their face if they stand up for themselves. Or pull their shirt down and expose the womens breasts. Beat women up at strip clubs. Knock your longtime girlfriend out and drag her around an elevator. Or have multiple rape charges like Darren Sharper. Anyone pay attention to the epidemic in college??? Odds of getting raped in college by an athlete is pretty good. Like real good chance. If you party with an athlete, and you see some incoherent drunk little girl, most likely shes getting raped that night by an athlete

  6. What? A fine upstanding citizen like Hardy isn’t welcome in Salt Lake City? You don’t say.

    Isn’t fans short for “fanatics”?

    I’d hardly call the lot of us level-headed. LOL

  8. I wonder if Hardy gets it yet. I doubt it. He’s so dumb he probably doesn’t understand that he’s worn out his welcome with everyone. He better have saved some of that money he made when playing with the Cowboys. He’ll never get another paycheck like that again. Just think, if he weren’t such a knucklehead he’d be making $10+M per year. Instead, he’d rather be a knucklehead and make nothing. Doesn’t make him very bright does it.

  9. I have to laugh at the pictures they choose for these stories on Greg Hardy. They are unflattering at best. Still, I chuckle when I see them. It makes him look clueless–which is probably an accurate depiction of him.

  10. Wasn’t it yesterday that I read right here about the voting…?? and, at that time, it was something like 68% in favor of him playing…??

  11. every now and again, the good folk of ol USA get it right! This “turd” can go work for a living.
    It’s hard to understand why these guys give up sooo much rather than live a simple and decent life.

  12. Does someone deserve a shot at a second chance after doing what he did? Yes, probably so. But if that someone refuses to change his behavior and shows no obvious remorse for his/her actions, then no, the second chance is not deserved. I don’t feel badly for Greg Hardy, even if I think that “fan vote” may have been slightly skewed by non-fan participation. Bottom line is that Greg could have had his second chance if he took what he did seriously and changed his behavior, and he did not.
