The Minnesota Vikings announced earlier this morning that they placed running back Adrian Peterson on the ‘NFL Commissioners Exemption List,' which requires him to abstain from team activities during his child-abuse case.
It was the regular season home opener today at the temporary home of the Minnesota Vikings, TCF Bank Stadium, and despite the controversy, plenty of Vikings fans were wearing their #28 jerseys and supporting Adrian Peterson.
Excitement was in the air as the Minnesota Vikings returned to Minneapolis for their first home game of the season, following a 34-6 win over the Rams last week. That excitement would ultimately be tempered by a rebounding Patriots team that fell 33-20 to the Dolphins the week before.
NFL Hall of Famer and ESPN sports analyst Cris Carter took a minute to make an emotional, passionate speech about child abuse in response to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's Friday arrest.
"You can't beat a kid to make them do what they want to do," said Carter
I have an eighteen-year-old daughter in college, and she's constantly hitting me up for more money. She thinks I'm a human ATM and can spit money out at anytime. I pray she comes to me one day with an offer like this...and I hope I'm as lucky as this dad is in the end!
