Carolina Panthers superstar Greg Hardy has been put on ice because of a domestic violence conviction. Hardy has been deactivated -- likely because of the public relations battering the NFL took over the Ray Rice domestic beatdown. TMZ is reporting that Hardy was found guilty last July of beating his girlfriend and threatening to kill her last May. The league and his team tried to hush things up -- until the Rice situation exploded. Now, in fairness, Hardy is appealing the judge's decision and wants to be tried by jury now.
And, also in fairness, Hardy's former flame said he beat the hell out of her during a jealous rage. Why, you ask? He heard a Nelly tune at a nightclub and got pissed cuz his paramour used to date the rapper.
