Greg Hardy proves people wrong, makes himself look even worse in ESPN interview

I was so fixated on baseball on Monday that I didn’t know — or really care — that Greg Hardy was holding an exclusive interview with ESPN until right before it began. I figured it was a PR stunt from Hardy and his reps/squad/handlers. A finely tuned message to all NFL teams that, hey, Greg Hardy is still alive and would like a job, thanks. He’ll say some things that make him look good. And when “good” is anything more than a remorseless woman-beater, the high bar is set in the dirt.

Maybe the interview would help Hardy’s cause. But as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wrote early in the day, it definitely wouldn’t hurt his cause. 

Rarely if ever does a move like this change a player’s prospects. But it can’t make them any worse.


So how’d it go?

 

I guess the good news is Hardy doesn’t come off as a remorseless woman-beater. However, he does come off as a delusional woman-beater.

Before this all went down, Florio called the interview “a nothing-to-lose move for Hardy ….” In some respects, Florio was right: Hardy didn’t have an NFL job prior to this interview. He sure won’t have one following it. And Hardy lost things such as the benefit of the doubt and general respect a long time ago.
