Teammate says Greg Hardy feels the world is against him

Greg Hardy

One of Greg Hardy’s teammates said that the Cowboys lineman feels that the world is against him.

Hardy has reportedly been late for practice and missing morning meetings, but there’s apparently a reason for it. He was afraid to face his teammates after his social media mishap on Wednesday.

According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, Hardy was “humiliated after messing up again, apprehensive about facing his teammates in the aftermath and needed the extra time to ‘get his mind right.'” When he did arrive, teammate Jeremy Mincey sat him down and talked with him, and Mincey’s comments give some insight into Hardy’s mindset at the moment.

“In the end, no one knows the truth except the people who were there,” Mincey told Breer with regards to the domestic violence incident Hardy was embroiled in. “We can all speculate and say it was this or it was that. I just know he’s working hard on being a better person. We had a heart-to-heart – I know he feels like the world’s against him.

“He has great intentions. We’re trying to give him a good support system. I believe in him as a man: He’s strong-willed and strong-minded. And the things he wants to get accomplished, he can get accomplished. He just needs to start looking at things from a positive perspective, and all these things will start falling away, and eventually he’ll be forgiven by people.”

Mincey advised Hardy to keep himself out of harm’s way and try not to think too much about the public perception of him.

Forgiveness may be a bridge too far for many, but in reality, Hardy remains a story mostly because he continues to make himself a story, whether it’s the Twitter bio fiasco or sideline confrontations with his teammates. The controversy won’t go away, but if he could just lay low for a while, he would probably be able to enjoy a few weeks out of the headlines.
