If it wasn’t clear already, it should be perfectly so now.
There’s apparently nothing Greg Hardy could do to make the Cowboys punish him now.
According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the chronically visible for all the wrong reasons defensive end was late for work last Thursday, and missed most of the morning meetings that day as they prepared for the Buccaneers (or didn’t, as the case may be, as they lost 10-6).
There was no apparent sanction, or any suggestion they even care any more.
They were able to ignore the domestic violence charges from Charlotte that led to him being parked 15 games by the league. They shrugged off the graphic photos of the injuries to ex-girlfriend when they surfaced last week. They’ve patted him on the head and told him to play nice when he said foolish things about guns and women, and looked the other way when he had to be separated from not only one of his team’s assistant coaches, but another teammate on the sidelines yesterday.
They’ve done it all in the name of the pass-rush (and the leadership) he provides in the quest to win football games.
Oh, wait. They’re 0-5 with him on the field this year. Carry on.
