Adrian Peterson suspension for child abuse

The NFL star “Adrian Lewis Peterson” who running back for the Minnesota Vikings has suspended for at least the remainder of the 2014 season. The suspension occurs because he reported injuries to his 4 year old son. 

The motive of NFL is not to end the Peterson career but to extend the running back time period in the league, said NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash said Wednesday morning. 

Peterson suspended for his child abuse who suffered from cuts, marks and bruising to his thighs, his back and on one of his testicles, according to court records. He will not consider as NFL star until April15, 2015.

The NFLPA demands that a neutral third-party arbitrator hear Peterson’s appeal of his personal conduct policy suspension, rather than commissioner Roger Goodell. Peterson case is like the Ray Rice who involved in the domestic violence. 

Hardin who represent the Peterson case criticized the punishment and said "I'm just amazed the way they just keep making these things up as they go along."

Peterson issued a statement in September, saying he was “sorry about the hurt I have brought to my child.” When you’re facing a felony charge, you have to be careful how much contrition you show because it could be construed as an admission of guilt. 

Peterson wanted to play the football but NFL could not. Peterson will get his base salary but he could not play the game, it is the punishment.
