Yesterday I wrote about how Greg Hardy's reinstatement to the NFL was a disgrace and this morning during Fox Sports pregame football show, former QB Terry Bradshaw severely criticized Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboy's for lowering himself to sign Greg Hardy and then for ultimately becoming a domestic abuser apologist. It was pretty sweet to see.
Menefee (Hardy) Was sat down because he was convicted of a domestic violence incident. then suspended at the beginning of this season, and Terry, he comes back, the FIRST TIME he meets with the media, he makes a bunch of idiotic comments. Either this was calculated or he planned it to get people off his back, or, he's the most tone deaf person in the NFL.
BRADSHAW: Stupid, you should have said stupid. Hardy was convicted by a judge, last year of two counts of assault on a woman, but, as a quirk in the law in the Carolinas where you could go before a jury trial, BUT, what happened was is that the alleged victim failed to show up, it's thrown out, so he gets a full year's pay, $13 million, comes back this year has to lay out the first 4 games, alright, fine. But ANYONE, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don't care who you are my friend, you never come back in this league.
"But Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in his desperation to get a pass rusher said 'Well you know what America, Cowboys fans, he’s alright. He’s a good boy. We’re going to get him all straightened out over here and bring him in.’ Which he did. He has his first news conference, he makes a fool of himself. and then Jerry goes out he says, *inaudible* and basically becomes an enabler himself.
This is wrong. We have no place for this. I’m actually tired of talking about the Hardy's of the world, and I really, really, seriously hope that eventually we never have a place in the NFL for people that touch a woman, strike a woman!
When will the NFL owners finally make a strong stand against domestic abusers? Jerry Jones obviously isn't one of them.
