I know that NFL is a hard sell around these parts, but where the NFL intersects with our hatred of woman-beating trash people and an NFL culture that is way too soft on domestic violence, a scathing rant can feel immensely satisfying.
Enter Katie Nolan, your new favorite sports personality. Go ahead and follow her on Twitter now, because you’re going to anyway after witnessing her Biblical thrashing of Greg Hardy and her male colleagues for not only going soft on Hardy but for giving him easy outs.
Hardy, in case you weren’t aware, was arrested and eventually suspended by the NFL for 10 games for grabbing, strangling, and throwing his ex-girlfriend onto a futon covered in assault weapons (criminal charges were dropped when Hardy reached a civil settlement with the victim).
“What are we fucking even doing? What matters to you? Seriously? Because expecting a garbage human who has been punished for being garbage to come back from his suspension and not immediately resume being garbage is asking the bare minimum.
If me hoping that the league and the Cowboys and their PR people and the media could act with a shred of human decency is ruining football for you then I am disappointed in you for how much we’re willing to accept to protect our precious Sundays.”
Someone put Katie Nolan behind a desk on a major network so that this bullshit finally gets the attention it deserves, and men like Greg Hardy aren’t given pats on the ass and go-get-em attaboys when they return from a suspension for throwing a woman on a pile of assault weapons.
