It’s a pretty trying time to be an NFL fan or even someone covering the league. Just knowing that an entertainment company we spend so much time and money on is content to openly lie to us on a host of subjects is distressing enough. That they’re willing to do so with subjects that we all struggle to cope with is even worse and it’s hard not to react emotionally at time.
The Adrian Peterson situation is no less troubling, even if it (thus far) doesn’t feature any league coverups. It’s been hard on Cris Carter and he’s certainly not alone on that.
