NFL: “It’s Modern-Day Slavery”

16 Mar

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson compared the NFL labor situation to slavery in an interview today.  “It’s modern-day slavery, you know?” Peterson said. “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.”

Adrian Peterson is set to make $10 million in base salary this year.

What an idiotic thing to say.  If “slavery” pays $10 mil per year…sign me up!
