Adrian Petersen Taking Some Heat For Slavery Comment

It seems these days, one slip of the tongue and your the topic of ridicule by thousands, or millions, of twitter freaks.  And now it’s Adrian Petersen’s turn to face the wrath of the Twitter freaks.  Yes, his “It’s modern day slavery” comment comparing the NFL players’ to slaves, is inaccurate at best, but really, does it deserve the twitter barrage that is occurring right now?

If the twitter freaks would take the time to read the entire interview on yahoo, they would would see a man who was venting about the decertification and lack of openness of the team owners, in a very professional manner.  Then one slip of the tongue and Adrien Petersen is suddenly the anti-christ.   People need to lighten up a little and cut the guy some slack.

Then there are the people who comment that at over $10 million per year, it’s not modern day slavery.   Totally out of context but what the hell, you only get so many characters on Twitter updates.   Football is a job to them; one that takes them away from their families, risks their health, even their lives.  And it’s a job that makes the owners very rich.  So what is all that worth?

Bottom line, the interview is about the lack of transparency by the owners, and the players are locked out of playing the game they love, and the fans are locked out of watching the game and players they love.
