How retarded is Adrian Peterson?

    OK, it’s not the radio so I can use the word retarded but yesterday, Minnesota Vikings‘ Adrian Peterson created a bit of a stir over comments he made about the NFL labor dispute, likening the pro football players’ current situation to “modern-day slavery.”

    This is obviously a piss-poor comparison for him to make considering this particular athlete makes over $10 million a year plus incentives.

    However, if you read between the lines, these seemingly “mongo-esque” comments kind of force me to think about the impact race has on this situation. Let’s face it, the NFL fan base is reportedly largely white so I wonder what us “white boys” really think about a labor dispute where most of the athletes are black.

    Our friends at ESPN2 discussed this briefly this morning and there was rumbling that issues between owners and players, especially in the NFL can be perceived as racially driven by the fans.

    I’m not sure but what do you think?

    Is Coach Tony about to eat some crow for calling Peterson retarded or is my untarnished record still in tact?

    Let me know.


    Coach Tony
