Adrian Peterson pulls the slavery card

March 15, 2011

ADRIAN PETERSON

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is taking a ton of heat after comparing NFL players and their labor plight to “slavery.” In an interview with Yahoo! Sports, Peterson compared the NFL to “modern-day slavery.”

Even fellow NFL player Ryan Grant of the Green Bay Packers blasted Peterson over the slavery analogy.

BRETT FAVRE: MISSES FIRST NFL START IN 297 GAMES

PHASE ONE OF THE LOS ANGELES VIKINGS IS COMPLETE

December 13, 2010

 

This weekend’s collapse of the Metrodome roof in Minnesota is being seen by some as the Vikings ticket out of the state. There have been numerous rumors about an NFL team in Los Angeles. This year, those rumors seem to have taken on more substance than similar previous musings.

In fact, a Vikings-to-L.A. move pretty much went from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact earlier this month when NBC, an official NFL broadcast partner, ran a story entitled, “Vikings approached on moving team to Los Angeles.” If that’s not enough to scare Vikings fans in Minnesota, the team’s OWN WEBSITE quoted a Vikings official as saying, “We have been approached by two different groups in Los Angeles.” The article then identifies the groups. One is headed by billionaire Ed Roski. The other group is headed by veteran stadium/AEG official and (ironically) former Minnesota Timberwolves exec Tim Lieweke.

The San Diego paper was among the first to leap to the conclussion that the Metrodome roof collapse could save football in their city. Minnesota taxpayers have simply refused to pony up the money for a new NFL stadium. In the end, it’s going to cost them NFL football.

OUT WITH A WHIMPER

December 12, 2010

 

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is saying he likely won’t be able to start Monday against the New York Giants. That would end his consecutive games started streak at 297. Favre got a brief reprieve from ending the streak when the game was delayed one day after snow collapsed the roof at the Metrodome.

BRETT FAVRE

The end is near.

Beleagured and banged up Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre managed to take the field Sunday against New England to keep his record for consecutive games started intact. He sure as hell didn’t finish.

Favre was carted off the field following a fourth quarter hit by Patriots defensive lineman Myron Pryor. Favre was reported to be suffering from a cut chin. That injury is in addition to his season-long ankle woes.

What They're Saying About Brett Favre's Penis Today

It’s been one full day since the website Deadspin.com rekindled the story about Brett Favre allegedly sexting photos of his penis to sideline reporter Jenn Sterger back in 2008 when they were both with the New York Jets and the fallout continues. The New York Post sent reporter Brian Costello to cover the Vikings and ask Favre about the incident (see below YouTube video.) The NFL has even been forced to say they’ll look into the alleged incident.

Deadspin also released several creepy voice mails that the married Favre apparently made hitting on Sterger. All of this takes place as the Jets and Favre’s current team, the Minnesota Vikings, prepare to face each other this week.

Even Fox News, the Minneapolis paper and Favre-loving Peter King have picked up on the story.

RETURN OF THE DIVA

BRETT FAVRE: BACK IN VIKINGS CAMP

Like there was ever a doubt. Brett Favre officially returned to the Minnesota Vikings today. The quarterback’s divaesque behavior surrounding his eventual return has been so irritating that even the hometown Minneapolis paper took a shot at the future Hall of Famer today:

Favre was chased/stalked by hordes of media last night as he arrived in Minnesota via private jet.
