Adrian Peterson takes stupidity to a brand new level

Congrats AP, you've earned this

In case you hadn't heard Adrian Peterson, a player who made $10.72 million in 2010 has a very skewed view of history when he refered to playing in the NFL as "modern-day slavery". Something I'm sure real modern day South Asian and African 'debt slaves' would find very interesting.

The worst part: These weren't even random babblings on Twitter, but rather in an interview with Yahoo Sports. Honestly, there's not much more to say about this other than being extremely glad that when our players open their mouths there is some semblance of intelligence behind it. 

Let the record show that NFC North blogger for ESPN Kevin Seifert referred to Peterson as:

"I've always found him to be a thoughtful, earnest and charitable human being. He has in many ways been the opposite of the caricature he's now fulfilled. But I'm sorry, I can't offer him any defense in this instance."

Lapses of judgement are possible, just as talking without thinking happen too... but expect Peterson's comment to now occupy the vaunted halls of men like Latrell Sprewell when he famously said "I got my family to feed" when he was calling for a new contract when his current deal was a guaranteed 1 year, $14.6 million.
