    ADRIAN PETERSON: ITS LIKE SLAVERY ALL OVER AGAIN... I AGREE!

    leave it to mr. peterson to break it down for all the masses to easily grasp things from the players' perspective. he said the way owners are treating the players is like modern day slavery all over again. he said it twice just to make sure there was no doubt where he stood. 

    now lets review the merits here. according to my "sources", back in the slavery days, the national slavery association was able to collectively bargain to get the plantation owners to partially open up their books and agree to share 57% % of all revenue (after basic expenses were subtracted) from their collective slave labor to be distributed among all the individual slaves including retired ones. before a stud slave at auction could be taken off the docks or turned over to a master, he was first paid a guaranteed advance and given various incentives or bonuses based on how much he lifted and performed for his master esp during the cotton picking season. even the worst slaves (the chad jacksons of the era if you will) were guaranteed to be in the top 10% of all earners at the time. if a slave got hurt, he could be put on injury reserve while being paid his pre-negotiated salary as he rehabbed himself back in his luxury slave quarters or with his master's appointed or union-agreed upon doctors, all happily paid by his master. if his master did not want him to bolt north or to another plantation, the owners would get together and agree to humiliate him by offering the average of the top 5 earning slaves at his position as a minimum guarantee for that year if the slave CHOSE to return! 

    slaves were so popular and revered back in the south that many whites and citzens were envious of them for if they wanted to see them competitively working out in the fields, they had to endure the cold fact that these men were richer and more prosperous than 99 percent of them could ever hope and that their kids and great grand kids would be set for life because of all this labor. many owners in turn, just like hank steinbrenner from the yanks, felt jealousy towards their slaves being able to build their own independent estates and mini plantations of their own right next to theirs or in the same cities.  many owners and members of their management teams openly wanted nothing more in life than to be just like their slaves, who got to be protected by the constitution, politicians, judges and everyone else connected with the law and power in society from sea to shining sea!  

    yes, AD really nailed it. if any slave came back from that era, they would be in shock at how horrible the conditions are for an AD. havent we gone forward they would ask? 200 years and no progress... they would immediately question why the north even bothered to invade the south. AD should keep speaking. he really understands how similar his situation is to actual slaves in america!

    how can anyone reasonably expect these players to be able to feed their families on such slave wages? $5M a year just doesnt go as far as it used to. i mean with tsunamis, record unemployment, food shortages, high inflation, homelessness all around us, and health care perils all around us, OUR top priority should be freeing the petersons of the world!

    on a related note, sarah palin and the republicans should continue comparing every miniscule disagreement with obama as exactly what hitler did, in fact its even worse.. any rational person who looks at nazi germany and what happened at places like auschwitz can easily see how similar obama's america is to that. on the same note, ditto to the democrats for their perfect use and timing of hyperbole in attacking the wisconsin governor and for what they did with bush over iraq. 

    what ever happened to perspective and common sense?

    Wow I always liked and respected Adrian Peterson but after those comments I'm just disgusted with him! It's a slap in the face to the real slaves who worked for nothing and if they didn't or if they didn't work hard enough they got beaten and whipped. NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO A SLAVE EVER!

    Well . . .   this is just a preposterous statement that should remind everybody --  most particularly the players themselves -- that without the NFL some of these guys would be lucky to be bagging groceries at the Piggly Wiggly. While understanding the value of hyperbole as a public relations tool, I don't think Mr. Peterson is doing himself or his "association" any favors with this kind of moronica.

    Wow I never knew slaves were paid in the top 1% of all earning classes in the states and own mansions that are large enough to house multiple families comfortable.

    Yeah this is what happens when you stop thinking and let lawyers tell you what's going on

      What an insult and absolute disdain for those who faced the horrors of true slavery.How many NFL players were hunted down,chained,sold(in a way that granted their owners control of their entire life and death..not a trade to another club where they are handsomely rewarded for their work)and lived a life that awarded them nothing till their death but pain suffering,agony and anguish.When was the last time you saw an NFL player led onto the field in chains and killed for poor play or any sort of real or imagined insubordination.

    Mike, at this point in your life, you should realize that no black public figure will ever be accused of hyperbole while making racial metaphors.

    Did I miss something about AD and his position in society?  I didn't know he was relegated to indentured servitude to the NFL with no recourse.  I feel so sorry for him, what being forced to earn millions in such conditions.  I am certain he much prefers the slavery days of the 1800's to the one he is enduring today as an NFL player.  Oh, but for the humanity!!

    Yeah, the minimum wage for a rookie is $320K a year.  Where do I sign up for that type of slavery?

    D. Smith has convinced the players this really is another case of Norma Rea.  I think they really believe they are in an epic struggle of worker rights.  Too funny.  Another poster is right, a lot of these guys would be bagging groceries if it wasn't for the NFL.  Some of the players are as bright as anyone, but some are just walking dunce caps.
