Richardson cried but he has yet to suspend, fire or even talk about the convicted woman beater on his team, Greg Hardy

“When it comes to domestic violence, my stance is not one of indifference,” Ricardson said, via Bill Voth of BlackAndBlueReview.com.  “I stand firmly against domestic violence, plain and simple.  To those who would suggest we’ve been too slow to act, I ask that you consider to not be too quick to judge.  Over the course of our 20 years, we have worked extremely hard to build an organization with integrity and earn the trust of your community.  I look forward to continuing to earn your trust and I thank you for this award.”
