Man Starts Petition To Kick Greg Hardy Out Of The NFL

"The NFL should make sure that he never plays another game in the league again."

A man by the name of Freddy Martinez has started a petition to try and kick Greg Hardy out of the NFL

"The Cowboys should immediately release him, and the NFL should make sure that he never plays another game in the league again" Martinez's petition reads.

Martinez started the petition about four weeks ago, but it has picked up steam lately. As of Monday at 5:45 p.m. ET, it had accumulated more than 70,000 signatures. Cowboys owners Jerry Jones has stood by Hardy despite the defensive end's well-documented involvement in an alleged domestic violence episode. 

Martinez references a Deadspin report that included pictures the police report in his petition, as well as pictures of injuries Hardy's ex-girlfriend sustained during the alleged incident. 

"As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I am having an increasingly hard time supporting a league that gives players the privilege to play in the NFL despite these kind of actions" Martinez said.

Considering that the Cowboys have stayed with Hardy through all things Hardy-related, this petition will probably not move them to act either.
