    Adrian Peterson loses his son

    Have any of you seen this story? There is a special place in hell for this piece of human filth.

    Re: AP loses his son

    "Son"

    He has 4 kids with 4 different women and is in none of their lives.

    Words can't express how awful I feel for the child, and how the monster responsible should get what's coming to him.

    But spare me the #PrayforAP BS that's all over twitter.

    There is indeed a special place in hell for someone who would do that.

    RIP to the little guy.

    You're probably right.

    But you also have zero idea AP's effect on this kids life. Your comment is no better than those in the twitter world.

    Then again, a thousand things happen like this everyday that are just as awful. The fact that this might have potentially ruined a few guys' fantasy lineups this week that generated a lot of buzz and articles is pretty disgusting.

    It doesnt even deserved to be discussed.

    Is that really the response of someone who had any sort of relationship with his son?

    People deal with stuff in different ways.

    I find it ridiculous that this get discussed. There's a thousand cases like this every day. AP is no worse, no better than lots out there.

    AP isn't the issue here. We don't know what his responsibility is with this child. Maybe the mom doesn't want him around. I'm not praying for AP, I'm also not deriding him for a situation I know nothing about. I also don't care because discussing the inane lives of athletes is inane.

    I've read that Adrian Peterson had never even met this child. That's all I need to know about Adrian Peterson. I'm a single father raising two kids on my own, and have zero respect for deadbeat dads. This story should be about a child tragically dying, and not about some football hero who used a child's death to suddenly claim the role of a father. The fact that Adrian Peterson is getting prayers and sympathy is pathetic.

    Re: Adrian Peterson loses his son

    AD is not making a big deal out of this, the media is.

    The first time Adrian Peterson (AD) ever saw his son in person was when he was on life support, laying in a hospital bed.

    AD only found out he had another son about three months ago.
    That was when the child’s mother, Ann Doohen, contacted AD about the paternity of her child.

    AD accepted paternity responsibility and was reportedly making plans to make his first visit to Sioux Falls in late October, so that he could spend time with the child and be a present father to him.

    I can only imagine his anguish.

    I wish 95% of this thread could not have happened. A few of you should be ashamed.

    It seems you are the one using this thread to push an agenda that has nothing to do with the thread topic. This story is a tragedy in more than one way. Maybe if this child had a real man in his life, a man who would protect him from the garbage that did this to him, this could have been prevented. But obviously this child didn't have someone like that in his life.

    And since YOU brought it up, my opinion of Pacman Jones was formed over a period of years, not just this last incident. I judge people on their character -- especially men -- not because they are, or were, a sports celebrity. The child in this story should be getting 100% of the sympathy, not some star running back who ignored the fact the child even existed.

    Nice job of hijacking the thread.
