Adrian Peterson will avoid jail time after entering a no-contest plea in the case stemming from the assault of his son last Sept.
The 29-year-old Minnesota Vikings running back made headlines last Sept. when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations.
Peterson was deactivated by his team during the trial that took place. He entered a no-contest plea Tuesday, which resulted in a reduced misdemeanor reckless assault charge. The football star was not allowed contact with his son while his case was pending, but he will now be able to do so. more >>

Apparently, there's a manual on "how to act black" floating around among black Americans and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is guilty of not reading it. In the spirit of full disclosure, neither have I. This hate is leveled by blacks towards other blacks, who speak standard, not broken, English and are or either aspire to be educated and successful.
Wilson's "blackish" backlash was reported by Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, who said he spoke with some of the Seahawks' black players who whined Wilson didn't act black enough and was too chummy with the team's management. Sounds like jealousy to me. Charles Barkley responded to this nonsense in a radio interview.
"Unfortunately, as I tell my white friends, we as black people, we're never going to be successful not because of white people but because of other black people. When you're black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people." more >>

Dallas Cowboy tight end, Jason Witten, watched with a personal perspective as the NFL was rocked this season with domestic violence. Long before the NFL had announced the league would take action, Witten was already doing something about it.
His teammates and wife praise him very much for the man he has become. Being raised in a home that was violent as a child and seeing you father hit your mother is not something that is always easy to overcome. So in order to show love and kindness to his own kids, he is raising his children in an opposite way that he was brought up. He is showing them love and spending quality time with them.
Jason has two boys and he teaches them what it is like to be REAL man. Being respectful, polite, having manners, etc. Everything that he has been through as a kid has helped him become a better man. Aside from being a hall-of-famer, he has helped so many kids become respectable men. more >>
