Greg Hardy Tweets a Dumb Thing, is an Idiot

Greg Hardy of the Dallas Cowboys, who is suspended for the team’s first ten games this season due to domestic assault, is an idiot. We all know that. He assaulted his then-girlfriend, and that alone earns him the title of “idiot” (along with a few other choice words), but today he confirmed his idiocy in a big way.

Hardy was replying to a fan who was referring to the Carolina Panthers’ wide receiver tandem of Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess as “The Twin Towers.” This is a common nickname given to a pair of teammate who are very tall, and is not a 9/11 reference in and of itself. Hardy’s reply was really dumb, and not funny at all.

Greg Hardy is an idiot for tweeting this. He later apologized (of course), but I’m still not entirely sure what his apology tweet means, as it isn’t exactly perfect English.

C’mon, Greg. Learn how to use Twitter. Or better yet, learn how to use the English language.

9/11 jokes are never funny. Comedian Jeffry Ross was in hot water last month, after his joke aimed at Pete Davidson (whose father, a firefighter, died that day in the World Trade Center) during the Roast of Justin Bieber. It’s time to stop making jokes out of one of the worst days in American history. There are other things you can make fun of. Try a Greg Hardy joke instead, perhaps aimed at how much of an idiot he is.

Aaron Hernandez is Sentenced to Life in Prison

The verdict was finally reached in the Aaron Hernandez murder trial. Hernandez has been found guilty of all charges, and faces life in prison without parole.

The ex-Patriots tight end was charged with, and found guilty of, first-degree murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, and unlawful possession of ammunition. All charges were related to the 2013 case involving the murder of Odin Lloyd in Massachusetts.

There are two more murder charges pending against Hernandez, but those won’t be decided on until later this year. Wednesday’s verdict will most likely push back the trials for those charges.

Hernandez finally got the punishment he deserved, and the New England Patriots and the entire NFL should do their best to forget him.

Goodbye, Aaron Hernandez. You won’t be missed.

A possible future Los Angeles or Toronto team in the NFL, more controversy surrounding “Deflate-Gate”, and several rule changes were some of the major discussions that took place these past few days in Phoenix, Arizona, where general managers, coaches, and players met for the NFL’s Annual Meeting.

There were 23 rule proposals submitted by various clubs in the NFL, and Roger Goodell shed some light on some major events going on around the league.

To start off, here are some of the most interesting rule proposals that were submitted by various teams:

Where in the World is Rolando McClain Going?

We have all heard about Greg Hardy recently signing with the Dallas Cowboys, but one question that has been lingering in my head is, where is Rolando McClain? The powerful force at inside linebacker for the Cowboys’ defense last year finished with 81 combined tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 sack, but has been left with an unknown future in free agency.

McClain has been working out at his alma mater, the University of Alabama, and doing some rehab on his right knee, with more enthusiasm for the upcoming 2015 season than ever before. However, the Cowboys do not seem to share this same enthusiasm, as McClain is still unsigned despite being one of the top inside linebackers left on the market.

The New York Jets are Close to Being Relevant (Kind of)

So, the New York Jets just landed (haha, get it?) wide receiver Brandon Marshall in a trade with the Chicago Bears.

Marshall is a great talent, and he makes the Jets a whole lot better. He gives the team a true number one receiver.
