Adrian Peterson: Modern Day Slave.



Adrian "Poverty" Peterson earlier today singing for his supper.

First, the obvious ridiculousness of the comparison. A slave; 1) a person having no freedom of action or right to property, 2) a person who is forced to work for someone else against their will, and is also sometimes described as 3) a person who works in harsh conditions for low pay (slave labour).

One might wonder, of these type of conditions, which does Adrian Peterson think he fulfills? One might also wonder, does Adrian Peterson think at all?

The average worker in America makes around $40,000.

The MINIMUM NFL wage for rookies is $325,000; about eight times more than an average wage.

Adrian “Poverty” Peterson was due to make about $10,000,000 this season; about two hundred and fifty times the average wage.

A premier NFL player can make about $15,000,000; about three hundred and seventy-five times the average wage.

Hey Adrian, why don't you show us your books so we can see how a “modern day slave” lives?

Adrian had some other observations on how he sees modern life; up is down, black is white, war is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength. One thing about Adrian we know for sure; he loves Big Brother!!

Seriously, what an colossal fool. Arrogant, ignorant and an entitlement mentality a mile long.

But don't worry, it's all my fault. Really. I'm sure it will be revealed very shortly that I've “misinterpreted his comments” or that “he didn't really mean it” and it surely doesn't show anything about how insanely many players and the Union (that is not a Union) think.
