Let’s Review: Adrian Peterson is Still a Piece of Garbage

Adrian Peterson 2014 ActionI don’t have any respect for Adrian Peterson. Not only did he beat his four year old son but he’s acted like a cry baby since that event occurred. In this world there are some people who take ownership for their actions and try to become better people. Then there are scumbags who blame the world for their misdeeds and play the poor me game.

Adrian falls into the second group. How can we respect a person like this? This is the type of narcissist that you can never please, no matter how hard you try.

Adrian Peterson, through his degenerate agent says that the Minnesota Vikings aren't a good fit for him. He wants the team to release him. Good luck with that AP (Abuse Perpetrator).

Let’s review the facts in this case.

Adrian Peterson Beat His Four Year Old son

Adrian Peterson did what many degenerate people and low lives have done in the past; he abused a defenseless victim. Adrian Peterson in what he calls disciplining his little boy, took a switch (a stick) and beat the boy until he had cuts, bruises and welts all over his body. The beating went so far that it left cuts on the boy’s genitals.

That’s AP’s idea of discipline but it’s my idea of child abuse. There were some people that say that’s how parents discipline their children in Texas. What? So that makes it right. Some things are wrong and just because some idiots discipline their children in this manner does not make it right.

We have come a long way in society. Women and children used to be the property of men. Women used to be disciplined as well. Today that’s called abuse.

How did Adrian Peterson react? He claimed that’s how he was raised. That’s not only a poor excuse but a total cop out. This is the reaction you would expect from a complete and utter low life scumbag.

How Did the Minnesota Vikings React?

Initially the Minnesota Vikings were going to play Adrian Peterson but due to public and corporate pressure they reversed course. The team fully supported Adrian. They did everything so that he could play.

When the NFL that was already reeling from the Ray rice scandal started feeling pressure from their fans, corporate partners and public officials, the Vikings hand was forced.

The team and Adrian agreed. Again, AGREED that the child beater would be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list. During the time that Peterson was on the exempt list, he was PAID by the Minnesota Vikings. Did I mention that this guy was PAID. He was PAID.

The Vikings also publicly stated that they wanted and expected that Adrian Peterson would play for the Vikings in 2015. His teammates, coaches and team ownership supported the child beater.

Even fans that were disgusted and critical of Peterson’s actions were ready to move on and forgive the man. The media in the Twin Cities were even supportive. This team and community fully supported the child beater.

Did the Vikings let down Adrian Peterson? Absolutely not. On the contrary, the team was loyal to the man.

Do the Vikings Have the Upper Hand?

Peterson claims the team let him down and has insinuated that they threw him under a bus when things got tough. His agent wants him out of Minnesota. Adrian is playing the blame game. He hasn't taken responsibility for his disgusting actions.

I think AP is living in a dream land if he thinks the Vikings will just release him. Adrian is under contract and he can’t afford to lose another season by sitting on the sidelines. Peterson has a lot to prove to the world (in his mind) and will work hard to do that, even if he finds himself on the Vikings roster when the regular season starts.

Adrian is posturing but I think that the Vikings should call his bluff. They should retain his services. If he refuses to play, they don’t have to pay him. If he’s a disruption in the locker room they can suspend him without pay.

I know most teams will rid themselves of a disgruntled player but in this case the Vikings should stick to their guns. They should refuse to release him and only trade him if they can get adequate compensation.

This is a business. The Vikings have invested millions of dollars into this guy. Releasing him or receiving inadequate compensation for him would be a lost investment, even if Adrian Peterson is still a piece of garbage!

NBA Should Start the Season Earlier Not End Later

Spalding NBA Street Basketball - Official Size 7 (29.5")The NBA is considering extending the season into July in order to space out its 82 game schedule. I don't like this idea. In my opinion it would be basketball overload. The season goes on way too long to begin with, so having the NBA going into summer, might result in many NBA fans may losing interest.

Option 1 - Play Fewer games

The NBA does have the option of playing fewer games but that would be a terrible option and one that the NBA likely not consider a real option. Reducing the number of games played would also reduce the NBA's earnings.

For NBA fans, a reduced schedule would make the league more exciting. Winning a game would be more critical as the teams would have fewer opportunities to make up a loss or a losing streak.

The fans will not be considered under this option because it will not happen. Even the players wouldn't want to earn less money. If the NBA were to choose this option, the owners will surely try to force the players into taking major cuts in pay.

If option one is not a good option what's the alternative to extending the NBA season into July?

Option 2 - Start the Season Earlier

I haven't read that starting the season earlier is an option. The NBA started the 2014-15 season on October 28th. I think that starting the NBA season three to four weeks earlier is better option than extending the season.

The NHL, which also plays an 82 game season that is extremely physical started their season on October 18th. That does mean that the NHL has to start it's exhibition schedule in September but that also means that the NHL season (playoffs) ends in June (first to second week).

I'm not sure if this is an option that owners and players would consider but I personally believe that my option/proposal not only works but is also a better one.

I think that it would solve the NBA's issue of playing too many back to back games and would prevent the possibility of their fans losing interest as the playoffs go into July.

July is summer time and families begin their summer schedules and vacations. If the NBA is worried about stretching their games out as well as maximizing their revenues, they should seriously consider starting their season in early July.

I believe the NBA will opt for extending the season into July. I don't believe that starting the season earlier is even on their radar. That's a shame but I'll have to deal with it.

What Do You Do With Trash? You Throw It In The Garbage – Vikings Should Be Done With Adrian Peterson

Minnesota Vikings PennantWhen you have trash in your house, what do you do? Do you keep it and let it clutter up. Do you let the stink of the garbage fester in your house and back yard? Do you let it make you so sick that you have to hurl?

Chances are that most people would throw that trash in the garbage. I liken Adrian Peterson to trash and I think that the Vikings should get rid of him. It would be nice if they could get something for this ingrate, child abuser and self-professed victim.

ESPN Interview

Yesterday in an interview with ESPN, Adrian Peterson (AP) who should be known as Abuse Perpetrator, lashed out at the Minnesota Vikings, the team’s fan base and the community in which he has played his entire career.

Adrian Peterson basically said FU to his team and the team’s fans. The poor victim, who beat his four year old son so badly with a stick that it left bruises on his body including the child’s genitals, wants us to have pity on him.

AP As A Victim?

I’m not one of those fans who sees Peterson as a victim. I believe he brought this on himself. It was AP who beat his child badly, not the fans of the Vikings and the team’s brass.
AP claims that the team (“empire”) and the fans let him down and were disloyal to him. He feels like he was on a leash.

The Vikings are a terrible team that supported him from the moment they found out about his allegations. They only refused to play him and worked with the NFL to put him on the commissioner’s exempt list after sponsors threatened to pull of their partnership with the team.

As the season progressed the Vikings pressed the league for a resolution, wanting AP to play. All through his suspension, coaches and the team’s higher ups expressed that they wanted him back. They were loyal to the guy, despite what he says now.

The Minnesota Vikings And Their Fans Are The Victims

It seems to me that it’s the Vikings and the fans that are victims of his Adrian’s behavior. Peterson is the one that beat his child to a pulp. AP is the one that embarrassed his employer. AP is the one that was suspended, leaving the team and its fans to be left out in the cold without their star player.

AP is not a victim. He is the abuser and the one with the big mouth. AP is the one that isn’t loyal. AP is the piece of trash that is throwing his team under a bus.

The Vikings paid AP around eight million dollars to sit on his sorry butt and pout. What a terrible team they are. Terrible, terrible team, aren't they. Looks like he was put on a leash by the empire , doesn't it?

Roger Goodell May Have The Last Laugh

As part of AP’s suspension, Roger Goodell let AP know what it would take for him to be reinstated when April 15th comes around. Part of that requirement stated that You must commit yourself to your counseling and rehabilitative effort”. While I don’t know if he is seeking counseling and rehabilitation his statements read like a person who blames everyone but himself for his suspension.

AP must be counting on a federal judge to rule in his favor regarding the length and fairness of his suspension but if the judge doesn’t do that, his comments and actions might come back to biter him in the caboose. AP is dealing with a commissioner, ready to pounce on him and destroy him. A smart person would tread lightly but AP doesn’t seem to be the brightest bulb around.

Adrain Peterson sickens me. As he continues to make statements, the more I want to vomit. I believe that the Vikings and our community here in the Twin Cities deserves better from a player they treated as its king. I think we would be better without the child abuser.

Alex Rodriguez Written Apology - Not Enough

Alex "The Roid" Rodriguez issued a handwritten apology to fans on Tuesday. The apology didn't go far enough. It fell way too short of a contrite and believable apology. It came way too late and in the end it was weak.

I think Alex Rodriguez would have been better off if he had refrained from any apology. That would have been sincere and believable since fans don't think that he gives a rip. I believe most fans think that the only thing that the Roid cares about regarding his PED use saga is that he got caught and lost money due a season long suspension.

So let's obliterate the man's apology.

Rodriguez Waited Over A Year To Apologize

Alex Rodriguez's apology (AKA farceology) is too late. Since I wrote about this last week, I won't spend too much time on this subject again. I think that if Alex's apology was sincere, he wouldn't have waited so long to issue one.

He tried to sue MLB and Bud Selig. I believe that his actions were slanderous. His actions were akin to sticking his middle finger at the game and its fans. His actions were shameful.

Alex Forgoes A Public Apology

Alex chose a handwritten apology rather than using Yankees stadium as his platform for that apology. While I don't think that Yankees stadium was the place for an apology, I think that Rodriguez is a gutless man for not facing the fans publicly and looking at the camera while issuing his apology.

He should have looked into the camera and we could have seen how this punk looked while apologizing. My guess is that we would have seen him for who is; a gutless, cheating liar. That should be this guy's legacy. He cheated in the sport he claims to love, lied about cheating and he arguable tried to ruin the careers and lives of his accusers.

Rodriguez Is Likely To Decline Comment If Asked About His PED Use

If Alex Rodriguez does refuse to answer questions about his PED use it will confirm to me and other fans that he isn't sorry about throwing his sport under the bus. It will confirm to me that today's gutless apology didn't mean anything.

It would confirm to me that Roidriguez was only going through the motions in an attempt to repair the damage he has made to his public relations persona and to his reputation.

I believe that everything this man does is calculated as if he was a robot. Robots don't have feelings and don't exhibit any emotions. They are programmed to react in a stoic and programmed manner in a way that the programmer intended.

I believe that Alex has been programmed like a robot but in his case, to act like a goof, liar, cheat and despicable person. Can you believe this type of person? No!

Alex Rodriguez fought Bud Selig and MLB. I believe that he tried to destroy the sport he claims to love. Are those the actions of an honorable, decent, respectable and believable person? I don't think so.

Today's apology by Alex Rodriguez added to my belief that he is a disgrace to baseball. He should be treated as MLB's enemy number one. I hope Yankees fans don't forgive this creep. I don't think that he would care but it would be nice to see the fans reject this guy!

Apology Too Late for Alex Rodriguez

Read today's opinion article regarding the Alex Rodriguez handwritten apology.

Alex Rodriguez New York Yankees Baseball Photo PosterAlex Rodriguez has apologized to the New York Yankees brass and Arod might apologize to fans at Yankees stadium. I'm not a Yankees but I do believe that it's too late for this piece of garbage to apologize for his actions.

He had his time to come forward and tell the truth. He had his time to apologize. He had his time to do something decent. He had his time to repair the damage that he inflicted on Major League (MLB) Baseball. He didn't do it when the time was right.

What Rodriguez did was accuse former MLB commissioner Bud Selig of of "cowardice" and conducting a "witch hunt". Rodriguez knew he was guilty of taking performance enhancing drugs and he not only denied the accusations but tried to throw everyone under the bus. He reminds me of Lance Armstrong.

I believe Rodriguez attempted to ruin the lives of anyone who attempted to prove that he was a cheater and a scumbag. Alex Rodriguez showed no humility or remorse for his actions. He missed an entire MLB season last year and didn't take the time to apologize to the Yankees, MLB or baseball fans.

I think that if he uses Yankees stadium as a platform to apologize for his actions he would be making a mockery of the Yankees, the game of baseball and baseball fans around the country. I don't think he deserves to be forgiven. Why? Because I believe you have to be truly sorry for your transgressions and actions to be forgiven.

When he decides to make an apology to Yankees fans and to baseball fans, I won't believe this guy's apology. I will always think that he's doing it for an ulterior motive or feeling like he needs to. I don't believe that Aroid is sorry for the harm he inflicted on MLB. I think he's sorry that he was caught and lost money due to his suspension.

I don't think Aroid cares that he let everyone around him down. I really don't think that this disgusting person is sorry for cheating or will ever be sorry for making a mockery of his sport.

Roid conducted a circus and tried to drag Bud Selig and MLB through the mud, knowing all along that he was guilty of what he was accused of.

I think that Alex Rodriguez is one of the most disgusting and low life sports stars in the history of sports. It sickens me that Roid is allowed to continue playing while Pete Rose is banned for life. I believe the damage that Roid did to the game is much greater than what Rose did.

If I where the Yankees I wouldn't allow this piece of garbage to use my stadium as a platform to spew more garbage. I wouldn't allow him to try and be the face of my organization. While he might play games, I would try and distance myself as much as possible from the cancer that has the ability to destroy the fabric of my team.

If I were the Yankees I wouldn't accept his apology. If I were a Yankees fan I wouldn't accept his apology and as a baseball fan I will not accept this guy's apology when he decides to make one!

Seattle Seahawks Green Bay’d their Chance at Winning Super Bowl XLIX

New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks Superbowl XLIX Framed Match-Up 15" x 17" Core CollageSeattle had the ball on the one yard line with Marshawn Lynch, arguably the best running back in the game. Lynch had just run for four yards from the five yard line to put the Seattle Seahawks in position to win the Super Bowl.

All the momentum was with the Seahawks. Just moments earlier, Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse made an incredible reception, a lucky reception. So what did the Seattle Seahawks do? They Green Bay’d the game away. Huh?

Yes that’s what I said. Just like the Green Bay Packers did a couple of weeks earlier in the NFC championship game, the Seahawks did the unthinkable and inexcusable. They blew it. They passed the ball and not just any pass but a pass down the middle.

What happened next was a thing of beauty. Malcolm Butler became a hero for his team when he stepped in front of the Seahawks receiver and intercepted the ball. This was a rookie and a no name guy who won the game for the Patriots.

Let’s take a step or two back. Time was running off the clock. Pete Carroll was letting the clock run. He didn’t want to give the ball back to Tom Brady and company. So he threw a pass? That’s Ridiculous. On the other sideline stood Bill Bilichick. Fans and the broadcasters were wondering why Bill Belichick didn’t call a timeout so that he could save some time for Brady.

Belichick looked like a genius and a man who was going to live or die with his defense at the end of the game. It looks like Pete Carroll thought he was smarter than Bill. He thought he would trick play his way to a championship. He thought he would outsmart Bill. In the end, Pete has egg on his face. He looks like an idiot.

Pete Carroll is a good coach that allowed Bill Bilichick to get into his head. Instead of making the right call at the end of the game, he took a chance and the rest is history.

Did New England deserve to win the game? Of course they did. I think they outplayed the Seahawks for three quarters of the game (1st, 2nd and 4th). I think that the Kearse reception was incredibly lucky. With that said. When you are handed a golden opportunity to win the Super Bowl, you take that opportunity and play the percentages.

Even if you feel the need to pass the ball, wouldn't you call a play action pass or something else, so that your star quarterback Russell Wilson could have multiple options if the defense didn't give you too much? That passing play was a low percentage play. It was too risky and left too much to chance
If Pete Carroll was really trying to run the clock down as he said in post-game interviews (NBC), shouldn't he have run the ball? What if the ill-fated pass was not intercepted but went incomplete? Wouldn't that have left time on the clock?

When I saw that Wilson was passing the ball, I thought to myself; what a dump platy call. Then in a split second the game was over. I couldn't believe it. I just couldn't believe that the Seahawks would be that stupid.

It almost reeks of being too pompous. It’s like Pete Carroll was trying to be too smart and clever. He wanted to showcase how smart he was to the world. Instead he looks like a rookie head coach.

Note to Pete: Had you played it cool and smart, you would have had two Super Bowl championships and you would be looking like a genius. Instead you look dumb.

As I said earlier, the Patriots deserved to win the game and they were the better team on Sunday night. The best team doesn't always win the game. That was witnessed two weeks ago when Green Bay choked away the game.

On Sunday night, the Seattle Seahawks Green Bay’d away the game and they will have to live with this for the rest of their lives!

Do you agree with Seattle's decision to pass the ball at the end of SB XLIX?

MEN'S Hockey Day Minnesota

Fox Sports North calls this Saturday Hockey Day Minnesota and they are the network that has the coverage of the day, airing live High School, College and NHL games from the state of hockey.

The name "Hockey Day Minnesota" is misleading. The network focuses on men. The women in our state are relegated to second, even third tier status. Parents in Minnesota should be disgusted with the network and the fact that it won't air a live women's hockey game.

Thanks Fox Sports for doing women in Minnesota a great favor by airing a high school women's hockey game at 11:00 PM Saturday night and that game will be a replay from earlier int he day. The network is definitely covering the men's game and they do it well but wouldn't it be great exposure if the network aired a women's high school or college hockey game.

The Minnesota Women's Golden Gophers are ranked second in the nation. They are an exciting team to watch. So why does Fox Sports refuse to air a women's game? Ratings you might be saying? I think that the women's Golden Gophers would do well.

I would love to be able to sit and watch a live women's hockey game with my daughters on Fox Sports North. I think it would help grow their interest in women's hockey. At least they would be able to relate to women hockey players.

Instead, my daughters are left to feel like Fox Sports North views their sports as CRAP and INFERIOR. That is the message that the network seems to be conveying.

We'll have to see how many featured stories, if any at all that have women as the featured hockey player during the day. The network focuses on men and women are left to wonder why they are not considered important in the state of hockey.

Women's hockey has come a long way in Minnesota. It is one the best states for women to play hockey in. That's great but I believe that it's despite Fox Sports North. That's sad and I believe it's an indictment on the network.

I can go on and on and on ranting about how pathetic Fox Sport's coverage is but it will only make me angrier than I already am. I can't call the network's coverage good. The network is covering only one gender on Saturday.

It's sad because Fox Sports North has an opportunity to showcase the women's game but I beleive that the network has chosen to brush women's hockey aside. It's really pathetic in my opinion.

Well, that's enough of my ranting. I will continue to write a scathing article regarding Fox Sports every year until they do the right thing and air a women's game live. What are you waiting for Fox Sports North? Why don't you care about women's hockey Fox Sports North?

Fox Sports North

Should a woman's hockey game be aired live during Hockey Day Minnesota?
