Well, Greg Hardy won't be starting his football-comeback in Utah, as the fans of the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles voted to not have the team sign the noted domestic abuser and drug user. The vote was as close as it gets, a 50-50 split for the Yes-No option, but since it was a tie, that meant the team would not sign Hardy (thank god).
The Screaming Eagles are known for their fan-friendly approach to the game of football, where they allow fans to vote on anything from playcalls and stadium food, and in the most recent vote, they thankfully decided not to have the team bring in one of the biggest losers in NFL history, Greg Hardy. Hardy can't find work anywhere, and for that, I am grateful. Hardy is truly one of the worst human beings to ever put on an NFL uniform, and in a time where every move by a professional athlete is under a microscope, Hardy has done everything he can to stay in the headlines - and not for the right reasons.
I am actually disappointed that the vote was as close as it was, and although I understand a player of Hardy's caliber would most really benefit an Indoor Football Team, the fact of the matter is still clear as day, he's not someone you want to represent your franchise, no matter what level. With this opportunity being squashed, I hope that this could be the last time we ever hear Greg Hardy's name, and that he will quietly fade out.
The NFL absolutely needs to blacklist Hardy at this point, because with the consistent criticism that the league faces for the way it handles certain players arrests' and criminal behavior, a player with this much negative baggage, no matter how good, should not be able to find work anywhere.
