Now that Cowboys mini-camp is done and players are about to disperse, you can expect a ruling on Greg Hardy’s appeal in the near future.

Those who search for meaning as to why arbiter Harold Henderson has yet to issue a response, those who wonder if this is a good or bad thing, miss the point.

One, Henderson is under no obligation to reach his decision in a specific timeframe.

Two, did anyone believe a ruling would be handed down when the media still had locker room access to the players?

Think about it. If Henderson upholds the 10-game suspension, don’t you think a player or two would criticize the process? Is it unreasonable to expect that in trying to support Hardy, some players would say they consider the suspension too harsh?
