NFL players are slaves? Yeah, right
He should consider doing the same for his mouth.
I like Weaver. He seems like a nice guy.
But in a recent appearance on Comcast Sports Net, he endorsed comments made by Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, likening NFL players and their plight to “slavery.”
Before he got hurt, Weaver signed a three-year contract extension worth
$11 million, believed to be one of the richest ever paid to an NFL fullback.
Sure sounds like slavery to me.
The fact that these modern-day athletes could so blithely place their current labor impasse alongside one of the darkest moments in American history just shows how out of touch they are.
I’m not for the owners or players in this thing. I just want to see their labor impasse settled and get them back playing football again.
And if someone wants to make me an $11 million slave, then all I have to say is where do I sign up?
