    I wonder what kind of heat he'll take for those comments. What if Big Ben had made that comment? By the way Adrian, nobody forced you to play football. Go get a real job.

    I completely support the players in the lockout, but this comment was just dumb.

    Between Gilbert Gotfriend, the WNBA player whose name I dont remember because it's the WNBA, and now Peterson, people should really make sure the filter between their mouths and brain are functioning properly.

    I would think our older African American brothers and sisters, those who had relatives one or two generations ahead of them that were real slaves, look at this as an ignorant, insensitive, uneducated statement by a young man who has opportunities that those previous generations never thought possible.

    IMO the issue of slavery had nothing to do with pay.

    Sure, playing a game for ridiculous amounts of money is a modern day version of being murdered, tortured, raped, and forced to work all day for no money at all.

    What a joke. Amazing that someone can even think that let alone say it to the media like he really thinks it's true.

    I'm with you 100%! If I'm the players rep I'm working like crazy to keep idiotic statements like this to a minimum.

    I want to say I was shocked when I saw this comment by All-Day but after the last year nothing a Pro Athlete says would surprise me.

    What I'd like to hear, although it would never happen, is Revs A and J to come to his rescue. So, is it racism when you're ignorant enough to degrade your own race?

    It's comments like this that encouraged me to watch the as many scab games as possible the last strike.
