FOX Sports analyst Katie Nolan rips into Greg Hardy's NFL return

Why Greg Hardy's Return to the NFL Is a Problem
By JOHN DORN

FOX Sports' Katie Nolan rarely shies away from an opportunity to let her voice be heard and potentially ruffle some feathers in the process. With the NFL's Greg Hardy returning from his suspension this week, and prepping for a game against the New England Patriots, she took the opportunity to share some thoughts on Hardy, the NFL and its coverage around the situation -- and she didn't disappoint.

Hardy was suspended for 10 games -- reduced to four games upon appeal -- after being found guilty of several instances of violence against his then-girlfriend. Among the acts were throwing the woman onto a couch covered in numerous assault rifles, which he bragged were loaded, and dragging her into a bathtub and choking her. Unlike the Ray Rice incident, there is no video of Hardy's encounter.

Ahead of his season debut this Sunday, Hardy said that he hopes to come out "guns blazing," which is particularly troubling wording given the details of his domestic violence acts.

Further, asked about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Hardy, unprovoked, brought up Brady's wife and her sister.



Later, a football reporter asked Hardy if he was aware of Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' girlfriend, and if he thought she was attractive.

Nolan used her popular, typically comedic platform to hold several parties accountable for this botched situation. Watch the video above for her takes.
