Panthers’ horrible Greg Hardy situation overshadowed by Rice, Peterson


panthers-greg-hardy

Carolina Panthers Defensive End Greg Hardy, in some ways, might be worse than the other criminals and losers making headlines in the NFL right now. I wouldn’t say Hardy is going under the radar- there’s been plenty of coverage of his crimes. It’s just that Adrian Peterson and Ray Rice are/were bonafide superstars. They were known for their talents on the field before becoming infamous for their deplorable actions off of it.

Juxtapose that against Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald, who most people have never even heard of until the NFL crime way took off. Now it doesn’t matter what they do on the field, they’ll be known first and foremost for their disgusting acts away from the football field.

Manchester United went all out for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels the summer transfer window that just passed, and Louis van Gaal will be back in this winter. He’s made Hummels the top target, and now we’ll see if he’ll get his way over Jurgen Klopp, who thus far is refusing to sell.

This one is going to happen, let’s hope it’s in the next transfer window. Instead of the next transfer window after that.

Almost. So close, but his first brace as a member of United will have to come another day. Perhaps versus Leicester this Sunday.

raheem-sterling-liverpool-news

Obviously the setback to Aston Villa at Anfield was hugely disappointing. However, it’s not a catastrophe for Liverpool. The Villans are surprisingly off to their best start since 1998. No one could have predicted that AVFC would be this good, and Liverpool will be fine once they get Daniel Sturridge back.

With that in mind let’s look at the Liverpool news making the rounds on the internet right now. Let’s get this party started:
