Adrian Peterson On Exempt Commissioner’s List, Radisson Hotel Pulls Sponsorship, NFL Sponsors Upset

At 1:52 am EST Wednesday morning the Minnesota Vikings organization sent out a statement placing Adrian Peterson on the exempt commissioners’ list while the team is investigating the child abuse charges. The only other time the exempt commissioner’s list was used was when Michael Vick was suspended for dog fighting.

Radisson HotelSponsors are now weighing in on the conversation of abuse and how the teams/league are handling the Rice/Peterson scandals. As of now, Radisson hotels pulled its sponsorship of the Vikings and other NFL sponsors; Anheuser-Bush, Visa, McDonalds and Campbell Soup are all voicing concerns.

Fans as well as sponsors are legitimately upset about the lack of leadership and morality in the NFL in the last week.
