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.

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.

    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
