    No Mike, the NFL doesn't get it. A simple 10 game suspension (while he makes millions) for Hardy is pitiful. Hardy is a woman beater and should be ashamed of himself. He is not a man and yet he makes millions while he beats women...The NFL DOES NOT GET IT. He should be banned from the NFL and all NFL events and stadiums for life. And if you accept his behavior you are as much the problem as the losers that hit women.

    You are a coward Mike, not even opening up your article for commenting. Also it seem you are afraid of replying to facts when getting dressed down on twitter.

    No comments? Why is Ben Roethlisberger NEVER, EVER mentioned when it comes to this newly dubbed NFL "culture" of football. Only when the legal system works in favor of a Black man, whether the case is thrown out by a judge or he is acquitted, is it done so by some "goofy law" as Dan Patrick said. And only when it works in favor of a Black man does his employer (the NFL) still deem him guilty. There is a gross disparity in how the media reports and historically portrays sports figures. Roethlisberger's 2 rape charges are never even mentioned but Hardy will forever be defined by his assault case. Members of the media call Ray Lewis a murderer and he was never even charged with murder! You Mike Freeman aren't helping, especially when you don't even allow comments.

    I could tell "Hardy Ban Shows NFL Finally Gets It" article was yours without even clicking the article. Same story, different person.

    I read your article "Eagles Signing Tim Tebow Is All About Chip Kelly's Giant Ego" YOur psychological assessment of him being a meglomaniac and attributing mental thoughts to him that are not born out in any conversations reported by the media is disturbing. the paragraph of

    "Is Chip Kelly talented? Yes. Does Chip Kelly think he's the smartest guy in the room? Hell yes." exhibits your hubris at the very least.

    Thinking Kelly would even take the credit when it is Tebow and his coaching by Tom House that is the actual reason Kelly even gave Tebow a chance and as such is an absurd projection of your irrational and illogical thought process.

    Maybe you get paid by the word... maybe you are in need of your own psychological counseling and getting control of your own ego that you projects this insecurity onto Kelly.

    Tebow is being given a chance few people ever get given his path. To attribute it to the egto of Kelly is simply absurd.

    Before you write another of these flagrantly fabricated from your delusional mind and simply idiotic hit articles I suggest you think twice as I assure you this kind of yellow journalism is beneath any legitimate new source. You may think as a supposed journalist you are beyond reproach but there are consequences to your actions when they sink to this level of putrid speculation.

    You're most recent article states: "If you don't think the incredible, the staggering, the stunning, the insane, the eye-popping signing of Tim Tebow by the Eagles—a signing coming after the entire NFL deemed Tebow unfit for NFL duty—then you don't know football."

    Any form of thought to that at all or was it just rambling? If I don't think what? What do I have to think to prove I know football? Proof-read you're horrid articles before publishing them buddy.
