    It's not just that he's got this history of DV here(which is pretty horrendous) and is working towards a "second chance" here. Hardy has already gotten a few bites at the apple in the NFL, when his on-field talent still overrode morality, and even then he showed a complete absence of contrition and was openly defiant and antagonistic towards those who challenged his behaviour and did not make word one effort on a public front, to express anything that would remotely resemble that he deserved another opportunity. Rather, he did several more bonehead things, got arrested again, Deadspin released the PD photos of his GF and several documents that damned him further and eventually he was too much of a liability for a business that continuously employed Richie Incognito until he was no longer of value on the field.

    I'm 100% about rehabilitation and restorative justice practices that emphasize healing all parties to better the lives of individuals and the community-at-large, and I'm not against giving second chances to DV offenders if there is a plan of care in place to appropriately address the issues(beyond the CJS) and the offender is committed to change(Ray Rice is a good example) and there is some significant literature which suggests that a "zero tolerance" DV policy in any business(sports just happens to have a specific magnifying glass on it for case studies), is problematic, as it places the potentially financially dependent victim at risk for further potential victimization and harm, as there is a fear of reporting DV to LE because it doesn't just carry the stigma(DV is massively UNDER reported), but can also drastically impact their lives and the lives of the entire family(children etc).

    So endgame, it's a very nuanced and sensitive issue without a clear line and should be handled with utmost tact, discretion and empathy, so playing moral arbiter is not something to take lightly and is not something the NFL or the UFC is really capable or qualified of handling at this moment and would be best suited at hiring an external firm that specializes in these issues and can help them navigate these tricky waters with appropriate measures and responses...but goddamn Dana has failed with this so poorly already and his reaction and words are so dreadfully tone deaf, I can't even lol. With the Hardy case moreso than most, BECAUSE he has already shown a terrible track record in his responsivity to his acts, I've said it before, but this has a million ways to go wrong and does not serve anybody in the positive but Hardy and Dana is too much of a stubborn buffoon to identify even the BEST CASE scenario optics, which make UFC/MMA look like a goddamn Thunderdome for behaviour cases who were too much trouble for the big leagues.

    TBH, I kinda want to see Hardy run the table, win the title and then have a massive PR snafu where this all blows up in Dana's face and like, kills a UFC 300 Mega PPV against Conor on steroids or some other massive HW title fight, and Dana has to eat barrels of shit.

    Tonight is the night. Hopefully Austen derails the DV/Hype train before it even gets started.

    @Sakara=Excitement i know that, but when I go there i see a bunch of stuff about old episodes from last season, and one quick promo from tonight, but no information on what time, timezone, or where to go on fightpass to watch it.

    I've never watched a scheduled show on fightpass so i have no clue how to do it. the prelims are easy, click on 'live events' but this show isn't live is it?
