    It's a goddamn transaction for entertainment, not a goddamn morality convention.
    Yeah, well, the marketplace has clearly made a decision that doesn't reflect your personal belief. It happens. I don't think people should pay what they pay for Apple computers, but they do.

    It's a friggin' business! Deal with it....just like Macy's, McD's, or 7-11.
    Peterson's actions reflect on that business and not in a positive way. They have every right to do what they did.....grow the f*** up, dude.

    the only reason you can run a football for a living is because people are willing to pay you to do so. you sometimes have to do things that society supports even with no government intervention. Sorry to break this to you now.

    But I would get the same fans. Your plan wouldn't work at all. :/

    I seriously do not understand how it reflects on the NFL. It was an action done in Peterson's free time. The NFL had nothing to do with it.

    It would appear we both have a problem with some consumer decisions being irrational.

    Wait, a libertarian admitting that the market does not always make the best decision?

    Sure, the NFL didn't personally assist Peterson in beating his children stupid, but if you're gonna go out there and suspend guys like Josh Gordon for a whole season (now 10 games) or fine a guy hundreds of thousands of dollars for wearing the wrong color socks how can you condone child abuse as a company?
