This is a sports story but it deserves to be in GD. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson took stupidity to a new level with this comment:
It's modern-day slavery, you know? People kind of laugh at that, but there are people working at regular jobs who get treated the same way, too. With all the money … the owners are trying to get a different percentage, and bring in more money. I understand that; these are business-minded people. Of course this is what they are going to want to do. I understand that; it's how they got to where they are now. But as players, we have to stand our ground and say, 'Hey — without us, there's no football.' There are so many different perspectives from different players, and obviously we're not all on the same page — I don't know. I don't really see this going to where we'll be without football for a long time; there's too much money lost for the owners. Eventually, I feel that we'll get something done.http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...?urn=nfl-wp206
A man who makes $10 million a year compares the labor dispute in the NFL with slavery. Talk about being detached from reality.
