The behemoth was seen telling Falcons players after the game to "get the (expletive) off our field," according to The Charlotte Observer. This was followed by an awkward exchange with Atlanta kicker Matt Bryant, who teased Hardy, telling him he could watch the playoff-bound Falcons from his couch.
"I told him politely to remove himself from our facility because it was time to go, and he invited me to come watch him in January," Hardy told The Observer with a dash of sarcasm. "It was a nice conversation."
Hardy admitted Bryant struck him as a puzzling figure.
"I really didn't know who he was," Hardy said. "He was so small and weird-shaped, I was trying to figure out what he did," Hardy said. "I found out when I looked online that he was a kicker. I was a little shocked."
Someone get Chris Kluwe on the phone. Kicker/punter hate is approaching troubling levels.
