AP Compares the NFL to "Modern Day Slavery"...

Recommended Posts

Good for Farrar. A comment like that could be taken in many ways, and given the current climate, probably there are a gazillion drama queens out there just ready to jump down AP's throat before they have any context to the remark.

All Day should go to work for a Masonary Company, Then I would believe him. I thought he might be a little different guess not.

Good for Farrar.

The genie is already out of the bottle. Not sure how what he said can be interpreted any other way. Oh, I'm sure he's got P.R. people working on an escape plan to get away from that statement, but its really too late.

Na, it could not be that some are making it out more to be what it is now, could it? Mr. Peterson seems to be an intelligent thoughtful person and I still think this to be true.

That sounds like when Sprewell was insulted by the T-wolves 7 mill a year for three years.

"I've got a family to feed"

LOL.

Of course if I remember right he had to foreclose on his mansion and sell his yacht... double LOL.

I really can't imagine any context where AP's comments are not boneheaded. I agree with LIMT, PR people are working on a fix for whatever moronic thing their celebrity client has said.

I am about fed up with these boneheads! I love football, but I think after stuff like this, just goes to show what type of people these guys are. I think my love for the game will transfer to highschool football this fall.

Yup, nothing like listening too, reading about, watching a bunch of billionaire owners and millionaire players complaining about each other... sickcrazysick

not so much about 'sensitive to' as much as about 'entertained by'

and i'm not sure what's more entertaining, his words or the stink they cause.

Looks like this is going to be a great fall to be fishing.....

If you are a Vikes fan, and the season goes on as scheduled, it still would be. This team is going to be horrid this season.

There you have it folks, don't let your kids go into the NFL.

I'm to blame for this perpetuating this mistreatment of NFL players by watching the game on TV and so are you.

Shame on us.

Too bad AP didn't finish college so he could fall back on some of the other high paying jobs out there.

I guess he is stuck in a dead end career making 11 million a year.

He could always take his talents to the CFL or UFL. He's free to do that at any time. Something tells me he's happier in the NFL working for Ziggy.

Can you imagine if Matt Birk would have said something like that? LOL

I have a great idea. Why don’t we take the difference in $ they are whining about and give it to Japan. Guess what kids……neither of you get the money.

the grass is always greener I guess, sometimes people need to shut thier mouths and think about how good they have it.. ya, he may only make a fraction of what owners make and they require him to do certain things but how is that different from the rest of us...

I have been told that AP is a normal guy and pretty cool, so I am going to give him a free pass on this one as long as he doesn't continue to say it..

Good job AP, it's true too.

If you would read everything he said instead of jumping on the bandwagon what he said was true, he said same goes with normal jobs, the bosses and owners try to make more and more money for themselves but don't want to give any more of it up to the people that make it for them.

Everyone is such a drama queen these days, go get some tissues.

Really silly thing to say for one thing. Maybe if you are in his shoes, you really see it that way. Obviously he didn't think about how it would sound to the 99.5% of people who are not millionaires. I'm also going to give him a little lee way because otherwise I really like the guy.

As much as I like the NFL, part of me kind of wants to see the owners and the players lose a bunch of money over this lock out. They have THE BEST sports franchise out there, none even close, and yet they stand to risk it for their little $$$ squabbles. They're ALL rich, but I guess you can never have enough.

True- this is how business owners and bosses act. BUT IT IS NOT SLAVERY! Not even close. I complain about my job a lot, but if I told my boss or posted on facebook that I am being treated like a slave, I would be fired.
