Fans of indoor football team vote 'no' to signing Greg Hardy

The fans of the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles have spoken, and their stance is similar to the NFL.

The Indoor Football League team allowed their fans to decide if they should sign Greg Hardy, but they voted against adding the former Panthers and Cowboys defensive end following a 10-hour polling session that ended Thursday morning.

The Screaming Eagles announced Wednesday their fans could vote using the same app when they were allowed to vote on the team's play-calling last month. The results showed an even 50-50 split, though the "no" column was highlighted as the final decision.

Hardy was released by Carolina after a judge found him guilty of assault on his ex-girlfriend. However, the charges were dropped during his appeal after the victim failed to appear in court.

Hardy made his return to the NFL by signing with Dallas after earning the support of team owner Jerry Jones. Despite negative attention, the Cowboys kept Hardy for the 2015 season but released him once it was over. Hardy hasn't made a return to football since, though he claimed to have an interest in pursuing an MMA career.

If Hardy's football career wasn't already dead, it certainly is now.
