Just when it seemed as though things couldn’t get any worse for the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goddell, a second issue of extreme nature has arisen within the very same week. All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted on charges of negligent injury to a child, or simply put, Child Abuse. In a very detailed report by CBS Houston, Peterson was very cooperative with authorities and saw no real wrong doing in the incident, because he knew his intent. In what sounded like a routine disciplinary act of a parent to a child, began to seem excessive in nature as details emerged. According to reports, the Minnesota Viking used a switch from a tree to “whoop” his 4-year-old son, which has always been an ordinary form of discipline. “Never do I go overboard! But all my kids will know, hey daddy has the biggie heart but don’t play no games when it comes to acting right” Peterson allegedly texted to his son’s mother.


While “All-Day” expressed remorse for the injuries caused to his son, it isn’t something he intends to stop doing. In fact, the All-Pro mentioned how much “spankings have helped his life”  during his interview with police. In a sad twist of irony, it was indeed the excessive handling of a child that cost Peterson nearly one year ago. In no fault of his own, the 29-year-old lost his son Tyrese at the hands of Joseph Robert Patterson, a then 28-year-old felony child abuser.


The timing for this incident couldn’t be worse, as the NFL has been dealing with the Ray Rice case, which caused the league to reevaluate its domestic violence policy. Under the new terms, a player will receive a six-game ban for his first domestic offense, and a lifetime banishment for a second. Peterson was deactivated for his Week two contest against the New England Patriots, as he awaits further punishment from the league. However the penalty is said to be much more severe than the initial six-game ban, as are cases involving children. Check the video below for CBS Minnesota‘s report on the incident, which we’ll be sure to keep you updated on.

  1. He went too far, just like my mother used to go too far in the 70s. Just because it is generational doesn’t make it right. The baby’s scrotum was injured. He abused his child. My mother didn’t think it was abuse either. She apologized to me two years ago and begged for my forgiveness. She said she never realized that what she was doing was wrong. It was. It us.

  3. Who do these people think they are??? We discipline our children with a spanking or a whooping when we feel it is necessary out of love and they call it abuse but when something happen in the streets (weather our chld did it, they think they did it or they just don’t like the way they look) the police can beat the hell out of them or beat them to DEATH and consider that justified. What is wrong with that picture???

    When you know better you should do better and the people on this thread justifying a 4 year old being hit with a branch is low brow and barbaric, There is a thin line in beating your kids and abuse..this was abuse and lazy parenting. This is a learned behavior from slavery beating black folks…Our people take enough beating already in America. Must parents beat them some more…really.. I wonder if his punishment was to be beaten with a branch from a tree, would he think this is civilized behavior.

      Disagree with you respectfully based on my travels to Africa, Asia, and South America where children are punished by having corporal punishment like getting a beating with a belt on a bare bum , or a bamboo stick on the bum . It is incorrect to blame everything that people do on the White man or Slavery. We all have our own mind, and we make choices good or bad.

  7. I’m from the old school and we had to go pick our switch to get whipped with. I can say my siblings and I have never been in any major trouble. These days you can’t discipline your kids and wonder why they are out of control.
