Just catching up on some reading this morning. I am a bit behind on the Adrian Peterson's son and the situation.
Its tragic when any child dies. His mother deserves all the support in the world.
But as far as AP is concerned, he is a dead beat loser. I hope he gets KTFO today. When you deny the child is yours for years and then acknowledge him only when forced to after a court confirms the DNA result is a cowardly irresponsible and cruel thing to do to a kid.
"Football is something I will always fall back on," he said. ”It gets me through tough times. Just being around the guys in here, that's what I need in my life, guys supporting me and just being able to go out and play this game I love. Things that I go through, I've said a thousand times, it helps me play this game to a different level. I'm able to kind of release a lot of my stress through this sport, so that's what I plan on doing."
Stress? Stress is raising a kid on your own while the father is making millions and denying any responsibility.
Sorry AP, you get zero sympathy. You weren't a father to him in life, you don't deserve anything in his death.
Just read the article that says he did not know the child existed and was his until 3 months ago. Apparently he was planning to see him later this month. So I recant my previous statement. Still, its strange that he finds out in early July that he has a son, while nothing NFL related is happening, and doesn't plan on seeing him for 4 months. I'd like to think if I was a multimillionaire on vacation in the same situation I would act a little quicker. But you know, we can't judge. We can never judge.
