Free Speech for the Dumb: Adrian Peterson

It's been awhile since I had a Free Speech for the Dumb story, but this one was too good to pass up.

The NFL owners are locking out the players until a new CBA can be reached. What does star NFL running back Adrian Peterson think about it?
If they have nothing to hide, just give us the information. Why not? Obviously, there’s a lot to hide — these guys are professionals, and they’re maximizing what they do. But they know that if all this information comes out, the information the players want, it’ll be right out there for everyone to see. It’s a rip-off — not just for the players, but for the people who work at the concession stands and at the stadiums.

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. With all the money . . . the owners are trying to get a different percentage, and bring in more money
Wow. Really? A didn't know slaves made $10.72 million a year. Heck that's not even a full year, maybe 7 months. Where do I sign up to be that kind of slave? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would be willing to sign up.
