I'm fine with 'releasing the kraken', but lets shy away from doing it at 100 MPH. This time last year Panthers DE Greg Hardy missed training camp as he recovered from an injury stemming from a pre-camp motorcycle accident, his second significant road accident after a car crash in college played a large role in his falling to the 6th round of the draft after being hailed as a first round pick.
Now Darin Gantt points out that Hardy is back to making poor automotive decisions as Hardy posted a photo on his Instagram account of a Bentley speedometer reading just over 100 MPH with the quote "Ride n in the big B" taken at a timestamp of 7:11AM this morning.

This week the Panthers are all returning to Charlotte in preparation to head to Spartanburg in ten days, and as Gantt says "I live in Charlotte, and there aren't many places where 100 mph luxury cars are a good idea." We're not so far removed from Charlotte Hornets guard Bobby Phills dying in a speed-racing indicent with David Wesley that fans in the Queen City are supremely forgiving for this kind of behavior.
Greg, it's ten days before training camp and everyone is looking for you to take the next big step. Please, stop doing stupid things.
