NFL to Give Up Tax-Exempt Status

Greg Hardy Suspended 10 Games Without Pay

The NFL has suspended Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy 10 games without pay to start the 2015 season. Following his domestic violence arrest last season. Though all charges in the case were dropped after Hardy's alleged victim stopped cooperating with police, the NFL's investigation "determined that there was sufficient credible evidence that Hardy engaged in conduct that violated NFL policies in multiple respects and with aggravating circumstances," according to the league's release on the subject.
