THE rumor that Greg Hardy might become an Eagle is exactly that. It’s a rumor and nothing more. Today I’ve been to a number of sites and blogs that ALL cite the same source (Pro Football Rumors) for the story that they have perpetuated.
In the source story, PFR doesn’t cite a source, offer a quote or even say that Hardy’s agent has called the Eagles or that the Eagles have called Hardy’s agent. There isn’t a single solitary shred of evidence to lend a gram of credibility to that article. If you had a blog and wrote the same thing, it would be just as true.
So if you’re an Eagles fan and you became worried or sick at the sight of the article, you can calm down. Until and unless you read from someplace CREDIBLE, that this is happening, have faith that your team wouldn’t do something so stupid.
For those who’d compare signing Hardy to signing Michael Vick, there are two massive differences:
1) Vick did not escape justice
2) Vick was remorseful, repentant and continues to keep his nose clean.
Signing Vick was a gamble. Signing Hardy would be stupid.
So again, you can ignore the rumor for now; and in the future be more careful where you get your Eagles information. Many sites have ads and make money off of your clicks, so they don’t care what they have to say to get you there.
Hey look! No ads here. Hmmm….
