Crime Does Pay

So much for teams getting serious about domestic violence. Just last September, Jerry Jones said domestic violence was “intolerable.”

But apparently passing on Greg Hardy was even more intolerable. And now Jerry’s spinning that “our organization understands the very serious nature of domestic violence in our society and in our league. We know that Greg has a firm understanding of those issues as well.” Right.

His “firm understanding” is that if you can get a firm handle on the quarterback, nothing else matters.

They want nothing to do with the NFL’s leading rusher, DeMarco Murray, and let him go to an arch rival in Philly. But go out of their way to bring in a terrible dude, who’s still on the NFL’s exempt list and almost assuredly will begin the season with a suspension? Because they felt like they couldn’t afford to pass on Hardy, even if he did throw his ex-girlfriend on a bed full of guns and threaten to kill her.

As long as Hardy doesn’t threaten to kill anyone else, they figure they can pencil him for a dozen sacks. Who says crime doesn’t pay. It does. Pretty well in fact.

Message I’m hearing is, threatening a woman is cool, just as long as you’re a threat to the quarterback.
