Greg Hardy

Carolina Panthers' defensive end Greg Hardy is the latest casualty of the NFL's strict new policy on domestic abuse. Hardy, 28, was placed on something called the Commissioner's exempt list, meaning he is suspended with pay until his legal problems are resolved.

Hardy was arrested in May and charged with domestic assault and threatening to kill his girlfriend, Nicole Holder. He was released on $17,000 bond and ordered to turn over all of his weapons to the court.

Holder, 28, says she began dating Hardy in September. She said they broke up in March and she moved out of his Charlotte home. They attempted to reconcile, but Holder said her “short-lived relationship” with rapper Nelly caused some tension.

Holder, a waitress at an EpiCentre nightclub, said they were laying in bed when Hardy "just snapped," according to court documents.

According to the warrant, Hardy choked Holder and “beat the (expletive) out of me.” He then threw her onto a sofa covered with firearms.

In a 911 call from the front desk of Hardy's building a woman who attended a get-together at Hardy's home could be heard saying a woman had been beaten there for 30 minutes.

"We need the police here now before this girl gets seriously hurt. Now!” she said.

Hardy was the 2nd NFL player to be suspended today. The Minnesota Ravens announced the suspension of star running back Adrian Peterson this morning. Peterson was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated child abuse for beating his then-3-year-old son with a tree branch. Peterson, 29, will continue to collect his $11.7 million salary.

      They really are trying to eliminate all of the color from the NFL….yeah I know they did wrong. But dayum near ALL of them do or has. Why now such extreme "consequences" for certain folks. They always have the upper hand and can rip the rug from under us at any time. We got to be smarter and do better!

      I guess U didnt read the post FIYA . . . BECKY was :hunch: err EXCUSE ME Dating Nelly.


      :smack: They have really got to stop saying "tree branch". Peterson did not hit his son with no dam tree branch. It probably was a switch. I think many of us remember those little green switches that you had to pull the leaves off of and they would make that Wooshing sound when you swung it. When I hear tree branch, I think big wooden sticks about 50 inches wide and 5 feet long. The media sometimes.... :rolleyes: Not you tho Sandra. I know I'm still new here.
