NFL Releases Statement on the Greg Hardy Suspension.


NFL’s statement on Greg Hardy-Via NFL.com

In addition, Hardy and his counsel, along with representatives of the NFL Players Association, met with NFL staff and investigators on March 4, at which time Hardy’s counsel made a detailed presentation and shared additional information. Hardy and his counsel also met on March 10 with the independent investigators, at which he was afforded the opportunity to discuss and respond to questions about the events of May 13, 2014. And, after having the opportunity to review certain photographs recently made available by the district attorney’s office in North Carolina, Hardy and his counsel had a further opportunity to discuss the evidence and provide a supplemental report from Hardy’s medical expert.

The NFL’s investigation concluded that Hardy violated the Personal Conduct Policy by using physical force against Nicole Holder in at least four instances. First, he used physical force against her which caused her to land in a bathtub. Second, he used physical force against her which caused her to land on a futon that was covered with at least four semi-automatic rifles. Third, he used physical force against her by placing his hands around Ms. Holder’s neck and applying enough pressure to leave visible marks. And fourth, he used physical force to shove Ms. Holder against a wall in his apartment’s entry hallway.

“The net effect of these acts was that Ms. Holder was severely traumatized and sustained a range of injuries, including bruises and scratches on her neck, shoulders, upper chest, back, arms and feet,” Commissioner Goodell wrote. “The use of physical force under the circumstances present here, against a woman substantially smaller than you and in the presence of powerful, military-style assault weapons, constitutes a significant act of violence in violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.”

Commissioner Goodell noted that Hardy engaged in conduct detrimental to the league and that a suspension of this length would be appropriate under any version of the Personal Conduct Policy or its predecessors.

Despite numerous efforts to interview Ms. Holder, the NFL was unable to do so. It is not known whether that is the result of her entering into a civil settlement with Hardy or other factors. The commissioner’s decision is based on findings that are supported by credible corroborating evidence independent of Ms. Holder’s statements and testimony, such as testimony of other witnesses, medical and police reports, expert analyses, and photographs.

The NFL’s investigation also concluded that Hardy failed to provide complete and accurate information to NFL investigators and members of the NFL staff.

Hardy was initially arrested as a result of the May 13 incident and charged with Assault on a Female and Communicating Threats following an altercation with Ms. Holder at his residence in Charlotte, North Carolina. On July 15, he was found guilty of these charges by a state court judge following a bench trial at which both Hardy and the victim testified under oath, and during which photographic and other evidence was admitted in open court and discussed in the presence of the public and the news media. Following the judgment of conviction, Hardy was sentenced to a period of incarceration (which was suspended) and probation.

DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – The Dallas Cowboys 2015 regular season schedule was released Tuesday night much to the delight of NFL fans in North Texas.

These are 5 Dallas Cowboys games you should get tickets for because they are going to be great games.

1. NY Giants at Dallas Cowboys – Sunday, September 13 (Sunday Night Football)

The Cowboys and Giants have always had that ‘division rival hatred’ toward each other, but it escalated to a new high when Giants QB Eli Manning signed his name to the locker room wall at the new AT&T stadium.

Ever since their championship season in 2011, the Giants have been in freefall. They went 9-7 in 2012, 7-9 in 2013 and 6-10 in 2014.

The Cowboys have a four-game winning streak vs the Giants and have won five of the last six, with…

Cowboys Schedule Causes Conflict At AT&T Stadium

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW) – Traditionally, December has been a difficult month for the Dallas Cowboys schedule. Now, a state of Texas tradition may be compromised by the Cowboys schedule at AT&T Stadium.

The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to host the New York Jets on Saturday, December 19th at AT&T Stadium. That game conflicts with the three UIL state football championship games scheduled for the Cowboys home stadium on the same day.

AT&T Stadium has hosted High School state championship football games since 2011.

When reached by CBS 11 this morning, Cowboys officials were optimistic that the conflict “will get worked out.”

While it’s not uncommon for the NFL to schedule late season games on Saturdays, it’s been a rarity that the Cowboys host a regular season game on a Saturday. In the last 40 years, the Cowboys have played only five Saturday regular season games at home.

Cowboys Officially Re-Sign RB Lance Dunbar, Punter Chris Jones

IRVING (AP) – The Cowboys have re-signed running back Lance Dunbar and punter Chris Jones to one-year contracts worth $1.5 million. Both were restricted free agents.

Dunbar worked his way into a change-of-pace role out of the Dallas backfield as an undrafted free agent out of North Texas three years ago. He had 362 all-purpose yards last season, topped by 217 yards receiving.

The 25-year-old Dunbar has a chance for an expanded role with NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murray’s departure to Philadelphia in free agency.

Jones has been with the Cowboys four seasons, the past two as the full-time punter. He had a career-best 45.4-yard average last season. His career net average is 39.5 yards.

Dunbar and Jones were the last of Dallas’ restricted free agents.
