Minnesota Viking’s Adrian Peterson: NFL Labor Is Modern Day Slavery

It’s modern-day slavery, you know? People kind of laugh at that, but there are people working at regular jobs who get treated the same way, too.

In an interesting twist usually unseen with the “slavery” comment, Peterson has a point. The players aren’t much different than anyone else stuck at a job with a crappy boss and unable to leave due to whatever circumstances. They just happen to make a lot more money because they’re better at football than most people are at anything so nobody cares.
