Default Adrian Peterson's version of 'Parenthood'

Quote:
In the days since the child's death, it has come to light that the unmarried Mr. Peterson may have had as many as five children by four different women. They include a 6-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy by his current girlfriend, a 4-year-old with a dancer in a "gentleman's club" in Dallas and a 3-month-old with a waitress in Minnesota. He is said to be providing financial support to those children.

Quote:
We praise our sports heroes when they set examples of good citizenship in their adoptive communities, but we haven't got the guts to call them out when they behave like alley cats.
Quote:
These NFL stars are not real men. They are careless adolescents. And the children are the ones who pay for their play

I wondered why Peterson would choose to play when his child died, and now I know why. He was never really was a father to him.

At least he's financially supportive.

I know that's not much but at least he does that

I'll be honest, I was wondering if he truly had any kind of relationship with the child, especially since he was back at practice on Friday, and playing Sunday. As a parent, something just didn't seem right.

I'd agree with this statement. doesn't sound like he's disputing his financial responsiblity, making him a bad role model, but not a worthless human.

He didn't meet the child until he was on his death bed. It is such a sad story.

This quote sums it up.
"These NFL stars are not real men. They are careless adolescents. And the children are the ones who pay for their play"

As I got older and started seeing some of this I've realized they are just athletes. I look to all of these guys for entertainment purposes, nothing more, nothing less.

So if anybody calls out AP for his non-fatherhood role they are a racist?

AP = good father? bad father? no father?
My vote is no father. Doling out $$$$$ doesn't make him anything more than a sperm donor.

I was busted his ass on here and FB after the 2 year old boy died. The media was portraying it as "Poor Adrian Peterson", while in fact he denied this kid was his for years and only recently admitted it after the mom forced him take a DNA test.

That's why Peterson played last week against Carolina. He didn't give a shit about this kid. The little boy was more of a problem then a blessing to him. Yet the media made it look otherwise.

All I have heard was he didn't even know about the child until two months ago
