FTW- Hardy: “I’ve never put my hand on ANY women … In my whole entire life, No Sir. That’s just not how we’re raised. As you can tell, like I said again, it’s the Bible belt. It’s just something that’s, I wouldn’t even say frowned upon, just something that’s nonexistent in most southern homes.”
Adam Schefter: “You say you did nothing wrong, you’re innocent and yet the pictures of her that surfaced would seem to suggest a woman who had some type of physical contact. How do you explain that?”
Hardy: “I will stop you there and say that I didn’t say that I didn’t do anything wrong. That situation occurred and that situation was handled but … saying that I did nothing wrong is a stretch but saying I am innocent is correct. Yes sir.”
Schefter: “Did you ever put your hands on her?”
Hardy: “No Sir … No Sir.”
You know what I would rather hear Greg Hardy explain? Why we're discussing his side of the story in April of 2016. He has to have a better answer for that than he did for the injuries of the female that he clearly assaulted. This interview occurred nearly TWO YEARS too late, and fell 10 about miles short of making anywhere near enough sense to do him any good in the public eye. In fact, I think all that I learned from his interview is that Greg Hardy has actually convinced himself that he's innocent. What makes his actions that much more unforgivable is that he still isn't apologetic about them. Greg Hardy makes Ray Rice look like a model citizen with how he has acted since his arrest. You know why it took him this long to include the "saying I did nothing wrong is a stretch" part? Because it literally took this long to convince him to take even the smallest shred of responsibility for what he did. Here's my translation of his entire response...
"I never put my hands on her, but I did do something wrong and she did end up visibly battered."
Oh okay, sounds like we are really getting into technicalities here Greg. I don't know if anyone told you this but it doesn't matter what appendage you used to throw your girlfriend onto a pile of guns, it's still considered placing your hands on a woman. I know you're not very good at inferring things that aren't explicitly explained to you, so I thought I would just give you a little heads up. Something tells me what you did "wrong" wasn't leave the toilet seat up or fail to fold the laundry. If I had to guess it resulted in the following pictures, and I don't care what body part you used to do it or how much the 20 months since have clouded your memory, it's still domestic abuse and it still makes you a completely reprehensible dickhead that doesn't deserve to live.
