Adrian Peterson Isn't a Good Father

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson receives unwarranted sympathy.



Last week, we learned that the two-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had been killed by the abusive boyfriend of the child's mother.  Peterson received plenty of sympathy, as anyone who had lost a child would rightfully receive.  The media also made him out to be a martyr for actually playing this past Sunday, "with a broken heart."

That's a very touching story.  The only problem is, it's complete crap, Peterson didn' even know the boy.

Adrian Peterson hardly knew his son, Tyrese Robert Ruffin, and didn't even know he had this son until two months ago when he took a paternity test.  The man who claims to have raised Tyrese, Bobby Ruffin, said that Peterson never even met the boy.  Funny how the media didn't bother to reveal those crucial facts when this story first broke.

And it gets even worse.  It appears that Peterson likes to plant his seed in any willing woman he happens to run into.  Peterson, who isn't married, has two daughters, ages 6 and 3 months and two 2-year-old sons, one of which was beaten to death last week.

Guys like Peterson shouldn't be praised for their "bravery" in holding up so well in the face of a tragedy.  Guys like Peterson should be vilified for being part of the problem with our society today.  Of course, maybe his childhood hero was ex-NBA player, Shawn Kemp who had 11 kids with 9 different women.

Adrian Peterson isn't worthy of our pity.  Save that for someone who is really a man.  Peterson is just a boy who does all his thinking with his little head.
