ESPN is reporting that Adrian Peterson is considering retirement after what he feels the league has a poor disciplinary policy (Adrian Peterson of Minnesota Vikings so disappointed with NFL s disciplinary process that he thought about retirement - ESPN SAY WHAT!!!!: Ok I will say that in one area Adrian Peterson is correct as this past off season, filled with domestic abuse cases, did not help the league. And what hurts even more was that the players charger were not just your run of the mill no namers, they were some of the stars of the league. So yes the NFL disciplinary process is poor, but Adrian Peterson is not helping the matter as he is one of the people the league is having to answer for. To be one of the faces of the league and get arrested for child abuse does not help the cause of the NFL. This is one of the few time where I will say this but Adrian Peterson needs to just follow the script that the high paid lawyers laid out for him. Have a press conference filled with kids from the local boys and girl club where you apologize for your actions and promise never to do it again. Say you are going to take some time away from the game to seek counseling for himself and his family. Make a donation to the local boy and club as well as speak out against domestic violence. Go away for the rest of the season and stay out of the news. The Vikings do not have a shot at the playoffs and if he were to get reinstated he would still have to go through conditioning and training which would not get him on the field this year. The only reason he want to be reinstated is so he can collect on his contract. But considering the image that the league is trying to repair and it was obvious that he pleaded out, he should take his punishment, own it, and come back ready to play next year. Or just retire but hopefully he was smart with his money as he will be missing those game checks.
