My goodness,  Greg Hardy was found guilty by a Court of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.

Hardy, Nicole Holder said, flung her from the bed, threw her into a bathtub, then tossed her on a futon covered with rifles. Holder said Hardy ripped a necklace he had given her off her neck, threw it into a toilet and slammed the lid on her arm when she tried to fish it out.The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Hardy dragged her by the hair room to room, she said, before putting his hands around her throat. “He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me,” said Holder, 24, who said she used to live with Hardy.

Greg Hardy should be in jail,  not playing football in the NFL.


Tom Brady was suspended four games because Ted Wells found that it was "more probable than not" that Brady was "at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities" regarding the deflation of Patriots game balls used in the AFC Championship Game against the Colts.

Hardy's suspension was reduced by 60%.  My guess is Tom Brady gets his suspension reduced to one game,  possibly zero games on the heels of this decision.

The suspensions need to be spelled out in the next contract. It is BS the way the NFL disciplines the players, coaches and owners. If I break a rule at work it is there in black and white what the punishment will be.

@tsjc68 I know its the Jags so nobody cares but we need to keep the NFL ummm national.

@levi @tsjc68 

I say move the Jags to Tottenham and then announce that the Jags have been removed from the NFL and there will be a new team in LA that will take their place.

@jsadolph @levi @tsjc68

AGREED.  IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME WE HAD A CONTRACTION IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE A SPORTS TEAM DIED.


The Jags being the one to die makes sense.  Their uniforms are already an abomination to all that is holy.

Oh, great.


This is like being told James Dolan is going to buy the Jets.

@Bent James Dolan is insulted you'd even try to put Khan on his tier of awful sports ownership.

@Bent @tsjc68 This sort of evil demands an immediate retraction and apology. If not can we ban you?

@Brendan @Bent


Khan's history as a soccer owner put him on this level though.

@Bent Does he force moves on them or get involved in player acquisitions? I honestly don't know.

@tsjc68 @jsadolph @levi 

I'm fine with the contraction as long as they don't tell the Jags till after they complete the move.  And make sure to revoke all players and coaches passports.  Don't want them to come back and poison other teams.

@Brendan @Bent


They had a ton of money and finished 17th in the league BELOW the EPL last year.  That's like Dolan dropping the Knicks into the D-League and still finishing last.


Also, he has ideas such as "I think I'll move the Jags to London, a place with no interest in the NFL other than as a novelty and where any die-hard fans already root for teams that are not the Jags".

You don't joke like that, even if your an omniscient green check mark with moderator priviledges.

@Bent Oh, I know the team is horrific, I just didn't know if he's pulling strings or just has idiots running his team.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan And the fan interest in Jax, which I assume is next to zero already and people just show up to games for the fun endzone parties.

But there's literally nothing to do in Jax, so people attend out of boredom.

And today in "Mets fans do their best to force Matt Harvey to take the first non-Mets offer he gets" news...


Mets fans belittle him for thanking Trump for a free round of gold on his course.

Sadly, if I were to gather a team of players that I always agree with, they'd own last place. It is what it is. At least he didn't commit any crimes.

I'm actually good with this.

@tsjc68 People need to get over themselves. It's a round of golf, he didn't co-sign his name to Trump's immigration plan.

@Brendan @tsjc68

There's 15,000 golf courses in the US.  Pick a different one.  And you're Matt Harvey, you can afford to pay full price for a round of golf.

Brendan
Brendan

@tsjc68 There aren't 15,000 golf courses within driving distance of Harvey's home. Come on, it's a golf course, people are going to play it and people who golf a lot (as Harvey does) are going to play the course if given the chance. 


It's not about price, there's waiting lists and stuff. The Daily News literally called him an ashole on their cover today for playing a round of golf and posting a photo of him and his teammates that thanked Trump for hooking them up. An ashole!

@Brendan @Bytor Meh, that's too long for me to get excited about poaching a pitcher off the AA club the Metropolitans trot out every day.

@Joe B. I have an appreciation for someone who doesn't wilt in the limelight and doesn't let the fans dictate how he lives a life. 


If Harvey supports Trump (and this is no indication that he does), I don't care. Athletes aren't politicians, if we polled every Jets player on their political ideologies there will surely be some everyone disagrees with. 


Just let the guy pitch, dominate and lead you to the promised land (and shut up, for once - not you, Mets fans in general).

@Brendan @tsjc68

Well, screw the NYDN, they're insane, we know that.


That being said, I stand by my comments.  There's tons of golf courses Matt Harvey can go to.  It's not that hard for him to say "I don't like Donald Trump, I'm not going to go to his golf course".  And Mets fans giving him crap for it is something I'm cool with.

Brendan

@Bytor The AA club that is a whopping 2 games behind the Yankees. 

Brendan

@tsjc68 You're missing the point. Golf addicts or hobbyists or whatever like to play different courses. I've driven past that course many times, it's gorgeous. I won't ever play it because Trump is a mutant, but I don't care what Harvey does with his free time as long as it's legal. Him playing a round of golf is not a criticizable act. This is getting to far into players' personal lives to belittle and judge them. It's childish and hypocritical since I know every one of these people have their own sins (and, again, playing a round of golf isn't a sin, it shouldn't be used as ammo to criticize the face of your franchise).

@Brendan @Joe B. There is no question that I want the guy pitching for my team. At the same time I have no problem acknowledging that he's a knucklehead. He has a history of saying or doing stupid stuff. Ask Dan Patrick...

Brendan

@Joe B. "Knucklehead?"

He shilled a product on a radio show, awkwardly, as he was a fresh star athlete who had never been asked to shill on a radio show. 


Hasn't done anything like that since. 


And what history of doing stupid stuff? Examples?

Round of gold? Like, gold coins, gold bars, or?

Edit: oh, golf

I'd have preferred gold.

@Brendan @Joe B.  Considering how long he's been in the league I'd say that's enough. Plus, the finger flipping thing wasn't too smart either.

@Brendan @Bytor True and the Yanks are a AAA+ team somehow still in first place. If the Mets had Tex and Gardy, they'd be 5 games ahead in their division.

@Joe B. .....he flipped off someone taking a pre-surgery photo while he was laying on a hospital bed. That's an "issue" for you?

@Brendan @Joe B. In my opinion he comes off duo**ey and that Dan Patrick interview is more than awkward a good example of the kind of moron he is. Still though, he's a great pitcher.

@Joe B. 'In my opinion he comes off duo**ey"

I can see that, no issues with you making this observation. My issue is with you thinking it matters. Who cares? He's an athlete, we cheer for him to throw a little white ball really fast. Not because he's out here making the world a better place.
