Terry Bradshaw Calls Out Jerry Jones For Bringing Greg Hardy To Cowboys
Say what you will about Terry Bradshaw -- he's aloof, bald, a hillbilly -- just don't say his heart isn't in the right place. Prior to former Pro-Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy's first game back in the NFL after missing 19 games due to a pending assault case (and subsequent suspension), Bradshaw unloaded on Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones for feigning forgiveness in order to beef up his team's defensive line.
Jones prefaced Hardy's return by trying to appear sympathetic to domestic violence.
[WaPo] “His statements of the past week reflected in some peoples' mind, a lack of contriteness, a lack of caring,” Jones said. “We take it seriously. Those are complicated problems. People are saying, ‘Well, you’re bringing Hardy on the team is a way of condoning domestic violence.’ I have a complete sensitivity toward domestic violence. It’s been a real, a real lifetime challenge for him. I know that he needs us. He’s our teammate.”
Terry Bradshaw wasn't buying it.
"If you lay a hand on a woman, I don't care who you are you never come back in this league," Bradshaw said during Fox NFL Sunday's pregame show. "But Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in his desperation to get a pass rusher said, 'Well, ya know what America, Cowboy fans, he's alright, he's a good boy and we're gonna get him all straighten out over here.'"
"I sick of talking about the Greg Hardys," he added. "I really, seriously hope that eventually we never have a place in the NFL for people who touch a woman."
In other news, Hardy wore pink on Sunday in support of women's health. Irony...ahem...
