Crying about the contract structure in the NFL on twitter.

http://deadspin.com/adrian-peterson-goes-on-a-twitter-rant-about-his-contra-1707529237

Hey, bitch, if you didn't spend so much time hitting your 100 kids with tree branches, you could have gone to some NFL union meetings to change this. Your union had a chance to hold out for a different structure 2 years ago. Instead, your union agreed to this structure for 10 more years. So shut the fuck up, stop procreating, and play for the Vikings. You're lucky they want a child abuser.

AP is just an awful human being. I hope one of his 7 kids whips his ass with a switch someday. What a POS.

I've never particularly cared for him, but watching him interviewed the other day made me ill. Still whining about the "treatment" he received from the Vikings last season and bitching about the gameplan that left him with only a handful of touches in their blowout loss on Sunday. Of course he ran "wild" for like 2 ypc in a game that quickly turned into a blowout. He even had time to try & throw Bridgewater under the bus, showing his integrity as a teammate.

I'm really all for putting him in a position where he gets the ever loving hell beaten out of him each time he steps onto a field. Even in practice.

Denied. He's right. The rule is a bad one. Serves no purpose to lie about it.

What rule is bad? That they are not guaranteed contracts?

Yes. That they are half guaranteed.

Either make them year to year for both sides or long term.

Upheld. You can't complain about the NFL not adhering to a contract, when you weren't adhering to the contract in June. As others have stated, this situation was collectively bargained. If you are so dumb that you don't understand the difference between guaranteed money and money tacked on at the end of a contract for show, then you really shouldn't be opening your mouth. Take it up with Ben Dogra, not the NFL.

Its bullshit when guys are criticized for holding out though. "Hey, you signed the contract, you should honor it"

That's just not how it works in this climate

I agree -- but it also doesn't work where the NFL honors every contract -- you don't get to have it both ways.

Agreed.

So I guess I wont stand in the way of the nomination but I need an amendment attached that says holding out is also part of the game.

Well, then maybe they need to organize a better system under a union ratified contract? NBA, MLB, NHL all have a deal is a deal.
