Greg Hardy won't be punished following sideline behaviour

Published Add your comment

What is happening to the Dallas Cowboys right now? That is a question that very few can answer.

Are their troubles due to injuries to Dez Bryant and Tony Romo? Or is it possible that there is something else happening in Dallas?

Not helping

The Cowboys fell 27-20 to the New York Giants on Sunday meaning that the team is now on a four game losing streak, but there are two big talking points for Cowboys fans.

With 1:36 left in the game, wide receiver Cole Beasley muffed a catch on a punt and gave the ball back to the Giants and wiped out any hope that Dallas had to win.

Beasley may have faced a heavy backlash from Cowboys fans today, but defensive line-man Greg Hardy is certainly the biggest talking point.

The already controversial Hardy was seen entering the special teams huddle, being in a heated debate with a coach and having a heated debate with star wide receiver Dez Bryant.

It looked like Hardy was about go insane on the Dallas sideline last night and his outbursts on national TV were not good viewing for Dallas fans.

In the wake of the events however, many may have expected to see some sort of punishment for Hardy to try and get him back in line.

Not in Dallas though as Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has confirmed that Hardy will face no discipline for his actions.

"That was just a situation that often times happens on a sideline where guys are trying to encourage and inspire other guys on their team." - Garrett on what caused Hardy's outburst

Whether Cowboys fans agree or disagree with a lack of punishment for Hardy will have to be seen in the coming days, but for now, all eyes will be on how the team recover.

Doesn't get easier

While the Giants were a tough test for the Cowboys on Sunday, it doesn't get better as they face the Seattle Seahawks in week eight.

Seattle will be rejuvenated after walking to an easy win over the San Francisco 49ers last Thursday and they will surely be looking to take advantage of a Cowboys team on a four game losing streak.
