Transcript for Dallas Cowboys Criticized After Allowing Greg Hardy to Play
Now to anger on the football field over Greg hardy, allowed to play last night despite newly released photos showing his ex-girlfriend battered and bruised from an alleged domestic incident last year. Reporter: A lot of anger indeed. The allegations he choked and shoved his ex-girlfriend. His conviction for assault was dismissed. But with the photos released, many claiming he shouldn't be on the field. I would not want Greg hardy on my team if he didn't demonstrate he was sorry about this. Reporter: Overnight, outrage that Greg hardy is still on the field. NFL commentators weighing in about his domestic abuse allegations before the game started. We're going the call the game. We're going on do our job. We're as uncomfortable as anybody is with what we saw on the pictures. Reporter: This weekend, deadspin make public these images. Police fetes showing the athlete's ex-girlfriend after an alleged incident in may of last year. He needs to be cut immediately. Reporter: But team owner jerry Jones standing behind his decision to sign hardy to the team back in March, writing in a statement Friday, while we did not have access to the photos that became public, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident. I don't understand why anybody would ever root, one second, one second for the Dallas cowboys. Reporter: Hardy was found guilty of assault. That conviction later overturned after hardy's ex-girlfriend didn't testify during the appeal. The NFL suspending him for tone games. It was reduced to four. Hardy addressing the allegations for the first time on Saturday. Tweeting, I express my regret for what happened in the past. I'm dedicated to being the best person and teammate that I can be. Now, even ray rice weighing in on Sunday saying, it shouldn't take photos to understand the severity of domestic violence. It looks like the NFL is handling this case much differently than ray rice. Reporter: Ray rice had an indefinite suspension at the federal court level. Hardy's four games, the same that Tom Brady got on defla deflategate. Some people saying, hardy is on the field because he's a good player. Some people saying that's why ray rice can't get back. He was convicted. On appeal, the victim, as is common place, did not want to testify. That's right. Some people saying that's troubling. That happens, we see that in other cases. Domestic violence victims don't want to come forward. That conviction then overturned. Should he be on the field? Thats a why you see so many people reacting that way. A lot of heat around this one. A storm moving across the country.
