Woah. Justice was actually served up in the case of the NFL. Go figure. You can't beat your kid and get away with it. Good.
Saying Adrian Peterson has "shown no meaningful remorse" for injuring his young son, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended the Minnesota Vikings star without pay for at least the remainder of the 2014 season Tuesday morning for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
The NFL Players Association quickly announced it will appeal the decision and demand a neutral arbitrator — not Goodell — to hear the appeal, accusing an unnamed league executive of telling Peterson his time on the exempt list would be considered time served.
If the suspension stands, the soonest Peterson would be considered for reinstatement is April 15, 2015, Goodell said in a letter notifying the 2012 NFL MVP of the decision and laying out the basics of a counseling and treatment program, including a mandatory meeting by Dec. 1 with a league-appointed psychiatrist.
