Earning a million in NFL is slavery

Earning a million per year in the NFL is slavery. So says the representative for the players Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.

American Thinker

The players are getting robbed. They are...The owners are making so much money off of us to begin with. I don't know that I want to quote myself on that....

It's modern-day slavery, you know?...The owners are trying to get a different percentage, and bring in more money. I understand that, these are business-minded people...But as players, we have to stand our ground and say, "Hey, without us, there is no football. "

Peterson earned $10.72 million this year. Slave.
