Way to alienate the GP from your position. They're already pissed about Billionaires arguing with Millionaires.
Dumbass. I hate it when people like that are ungrateful for what they have.

I think it's more about frustration than anything else. I'll give him the benefit of doubt here.
Wow.

Lol, modern day slavery? You're making millions of dollars to play a game.

Ryan Grant takes issue with Adrian Peterson’s slavery comment

The minute we saw Adrian Peterson compare the plight of the NFL player to “modern-day slavery,” we knew it was a comment that would get attention.

It didn’t take long for another player to take issue with it.

“I have to totally disagree with Adrian Peterson’s comparison to this situation being Modern day slavery. . . false,” Packers running back Ryan Grant wrote on Twitter. “Their is unfortunately actually still slavery existing in our world.. Literal modern day slavery.. That was a very misinformed statement. I understand what point he was trying to make.. I just feel like he should have been advised a little differently.”

Peterson will be given the chance to clarify his comments, and we’re sure he’ll put it into better context. For now, it looks like another comment to add to the mix from players and owners that lacks perspective.

We keep hearing about this fight in the context of future generations of players. Of fighting for rights.

Let’s just call it what it is: Both sides are trying to equitably distribute a lot of money. More money than previous generations of players could imagine.

That’s worth fighting over, but let’s stop trying to make it sound heroic.

here's the interview
Like I said before, I think AP spoke with emotion and frustration. I doubt he actually feels that way.

No s**t. If being in the NFL is "modern day slavery"...where do I sign up?

It has to do with 18 game season - where he is basically saying that the owners are only concerned with profits and not with players health and implying that as a certain aspect of slavery. I know he made a ridiculous statement, but I think I know what he was tryin' to say.

$100 million dollar players out there and its called modern day slavery.

Honestly, this makes me want to side with the owners even more.
