    Your take on Greg Roman is exactly upside down.
    He is slowly but surely ruining a once great franchise.
    He is an idiot.

    Whatever Happened to "Hater's Guide to Week X"? That was one of my favorite articles

    Whether you get to make the decision or not about comments being closed, I do think its disappointing we can't have a genuine (and in all likelihood, lively) debate about your opinion piece on Adrian Peterson. Yes, your sarcasm regarding about Vikings fans coming to defend AP is warranted as that people are calling you names (again, unfortunate). Oh well, those of us who don't like it can read NFL material on other websites.

    I do not choose whether or not comments get disabled on my columns.

    What a surprise... the coward keyboard warrior has the comment section closed because even people who disagree with AP returning thought your article was an ignorant and biased piece of trash.

    What a surprise...a bunch of Minnesota Vikings fans think their superstar running back didn't do anything wrong. I'm shocked, ya'll...shocked.

    AP didn't "lose control" when he disciplined his kid. That is your opinion. He's unfairly being lumped in with Goddell's mess of handling Ray Rice's left hook caught on video. He needs conseling on how to be a better parent. He doesn't belong in jail and never did. He has given to his community time and time again. You want to be a guy who stands on your high horse in this matter, and I get it. The kid was too young for that kind of "whooping". But as cliche as you want to say it is - being raised in the poor south is not the same as being raised anywhere else. He needs the Vikings to stand behind him - which I believe they will. He needs to be forgiven, which he will be...whereas Rice never will. These are two separate cases. AP should be on the field vs the Bears or it's a shame.

    NFL should hold AP to higher standard than the judicial system? Good joke. You are a terrible writer and your opinion of the AP situation is greatly flawed. You're a joke. Keep your biases in your writing, they let everyone know what a moron you are.

    You are a joke of a writer, using your personal bias against a team to try and ruin a man's HOF career. You should feel ashamed of yourself for writing that. The sad thing is people will actually believe what you write.
