Greg Hardy doesn’t comment after photos of ex-girlfriend’s bruises

AP

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had already done his weekly radio show before Deadspin dropped the photos of Greg Hardy’s domestic violence victim, and coach Jason Garrett had already talked to reporters.

But in the moments afterward, Hardy himself passed through the locker room while reporters were present.

According to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Hardy “declined media requests” as he left the locker room.

Obviously the Cowboys are in full-blown crisis management mode, and Hardy talking hasn’t really helped anything at any point this season.

But the person we need to hear from is the guy who signed him knowing what those photos might show, and openly discussed extending his contract, and declared him a “real leader.” And who, until this point, has had no problem with anything Hardy has done before or after.

  1. Anything done right now will be for PR purposes ONLY. If the NFL or Cowboys claim that they hadn’t seen the pics, it is just another lie.

  2. If anybody thinks they’re releasing him is dumb. They should but won’t. Dude already went through trial, got suspended but that’s just how the rules are… my boy Ray Rice can’t get a job though smh

  3. By percentage the players who are criminal in the NFL is small, so why doesn’t the league get rid of them. The NFL is repulsive. I am very glad to know so many of my fellow fans agree with this. We get painted as misogynist, violent ignorant people as a group. The responses here show that as a group fans are thoughtful, reflective individuals who are repulsed by the worst of the NFL.

  4. And what i mean by that is that without the pictures—this is the same bad crime. Photos should change nothing.

  5. What else do you expect from Jerruh Jones????? He would sign the devil himself if he thought he could help the hapless Cowboys?

  6. I wouldn’t have a problem if any Eagles offensive lineman decide to take a shot at his knees Sunday night, or hit him after the whistle. You rough up a woman like that, you deserve everything coming…

  7. This has already been reported over and over.

    He was acquitted and has had his record expunged.

    Served his suspension and has a right to make a living as someone who is considered not guilty, with no record, according to the law.

    Move on people, nothing new to see here. Doesn’t matter what you think or feel, the law says he’s free and clear.

  8. They just keep enabling this clown, no wonder he doesnt think he’s done anything wrong. All of the events since have proven that everyone is ok with it, and he can continue to go on the same way.

    One topic I havent seen discussed yet, how long until other women come out about him? If you know anything about DV, you know this couldnt be the first time he’s roughed up a woman. Sounds like no one was surprised, his friend, his manager, etc.

  9. Jerruh will just talk about how great of a “team leader” he is. This is disgusting and he shouldn’t be playing in this league anymore. If the NFL wants to talk about having a positive image and players being “role models” then they need to get rid of him but clearly they had access to these photos too so it won’t happen.

    Hardy had hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions to pay off his ex-GF (just like Big Ben did too). He would be in jail right now if it wasn’t for that.

  10. I’m so over the NFL. Fine Gay for his purple shoes in support of domestic violence prevention and what amounts to a slap on the wrist for a real life piece of sh-t domestic abuser. Please figure this out you big time money grubbing idiots!!

  12. I’m not saying either should be in the league, but how does ray rice not get even get a chance and this guy just gets to play…i get that he is way more talented, but he seems like a prick and based on his comments appears not to have learned his lesson. Ray on the other hand appears to have had a wake up call and is trying to change and won’t get a shot…i know the video is bad, but just bcuz we don’t see what other people did, it doesn’t make it better…hopefully these pics wake some folks around the league…i doubt it, but you know his leash got a lot shorter.

    ================
    Great point, but I think more accurately, Jerrah would sign whomever he could if he thought he could keep the Cowboys and–much more importantly to him–keep himself in the national conversation. Whether or not the Cowboys are good is nowhere near as important to Jerrah as being the center of attention and having folks talk about him are…

  14. Enough with the ray Rice not being able to get a job. He can’t get a job because he SUCKS now! His last few years before beating his girl were awful. He isn’t the ray rice of 7 years ago.

  15. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    This guy needs to be released, for his own long-term sake. He needs to stop playing football and becoming the Kraken, he needs to take up Yoga or something because this guy obviously cannot handle it.

    Hes a psychopath, just read her description of the events. This guy will end up in prison one day, one way or another.

  16. “Hardy had hundreds of thousands of dollars or millions to pay off his ex-GF (just like Big Ben did too). He would be in jail right now if it wasn’t for that.”

    You’re right in that the victim chose to take the buyout. And in some ways I can’t blame her as long as it was a life changing amount of money for her.

    People take buyouts all the time in both civil and criminal matters.

    That doesn’t change the fact I think the Cowboys should cut him and no team should sign him.

    Ray Rice doesn’t get to play because he was just about washed up BEFORE he beat his wife.

    The bottom line is talent trumps character. He’d be on the field now if he had done this 3 or 4 seasons ago.

  18. By paying this woman off it lets other woman try for a money grab, ie, Patrick Kane of the Black Hawks. No DNA below her waist, none of her DNA on the Sheets…

    I certainly hope her Lotto payment was worth all her bruises.

    Might be enough for you A Woman, but would it be enough for you if it was your daughter? …. Wouldn’t be for me…. That girl he beat up was somebodys daughter.

  20. @angrylionsfan, i agree with you…its just funny to me how ppl see the video or photo and then all of a sudden its a bigger deal

    i don’t care if hardy plays or not, even though it will be harder for my eagles with hardy on the field…the nfl has no clue how to handle this stuff, they don’t real care, and just want to keep the audience happy… the real problem is our legal system that let him walk after he paid off the girl.

  21. I still haven’t seen any evidence that Hardy caused those bruises. Coke-heads bruise very easily.

    She also testified under oath that the only injury she sustained was a broken toenail.

  22. joeflaccoallday.. Well then your boy shouldn’t of knocked her out, then drag her around like a piece of garbage. What don’t you understand about that?? I’m smh.. Moron

  23. I imagine that if those pictures were not attributable to Hardy, he will follow-up with a defamation lawsuit pretty quickly.
    On the other hand, if they are attributable to him then it doesn’t matter whether the case is expunged or not, he did it.

    And all those trying to give him a pass are on the wrong side of the issue. He, like many stars, have been pandered to since the moment they were first noticed to have talent. Not everybody abuses it but many do. He is one that has and will likely continue.

    What is really sick is that you have scum like Jerry Jones that enable him. Not just by signing him to a contract but by talking him up as a leader. And then using his own “purchased PR” about how many battered women facilities he has built. As if just because he donated 100% cash deductable money to build a facility that makes him a sterling citizen. It’s all crap. Jerry has broken that law over and over again. But he has the money to shut it down.

    No body believes it of course. But because Jerry said it, it must be true….not.

    No wonder they don’t fire Goodell. I’m sure he covers even more crap for all ofnthe owners than will ever surface.

    Fire them all and start all over again. Begin with Goodell.

  24. We never comment on this stuff. Especially after we choke and do some hurting.

  25. …I hope this makes ALL of the national news broadcasts like the Patriots did. Only difference: Patriots didn’t do a damn thing wrong. No evidence. Here, Hardy is a woman beater. Scum.

  26. i thought he was CONVICTED by a judge FIRST and then in a trial Holder went on the lam and the prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to go to trial …woo wooo go on take the money and run

  27. The NFL will not see another penny from me in any manner until this sorry excuse for a human is expelled from the league. Period

  28. i thought he was CONVICTED by a judge FIRST and then in a trial Holder went on the lam and the prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to go to trial …woo wooo go on take the money and run

    =================
    The bench trial in which he was “convicted” was little more than a junior grand jury trial. The bench trial is a quick way for the court to process backlog. The judge makes a quick decision on whether there is enough evidence to proceed by rendering a “verdict”. Said verdict can be immediately appealed for a jury trial.

    The DA could have proceeded with the jury trial if he believed in the testimony of the “victim”. He was not willing to put his reputation on the line for her given the inconsistencies with her testimony and actual the evidence. That’s why he was trying to reach her.

    Basically, Hardy should never have been convicted in the first place.
