Adrian Peterson Says He's Super Sorry About Hitting His Son — And Here's How He's Reforming Himself

Things might have been different if he'd said this upfront!

Adrian Peterson was suspended for the rest of the NFL season for disciplining his son so harshly that he drew blood.

Well, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that since the Minnesota Vikings running back didn't show remorse, he's done playing for the year.

NOW, Adrian has decided to tell the world how sorry he is, explaining how the incident happened, and what followed. He said:

"I won't ever use a switch again. There's different situations where a child needs to be disciplined as far as timeout, taking their toys away, making them take a nap. There's so many different ways to discipline your kids. No one knows how I felt when I turned my child around after spanking him and seeing what I had left on his leg. No one knows that Dad sat there and apologized to him, hugged him and told him that I didn't mean to do this to you and how sorry I was. I love my son. I love my kids, my family. Like I said after I took the misdemeanor plea, I take full responsibility for my actions. I regret the situation. I love my son more than any one of you could even imagine."

We're SO curious why he didn't just say all of this up front instead of acting like what he did was fine because it was how he was disciplined.

Also, Adrian said he talked to his son for the first time in FIVE MONTHS, and it's heartbreaking. He said:

"When [my son] got on the phone, he said, 'Hey Dad.' I was like, 'Hey buddy, how you doing?' 'I'm doing okay.' I was like, 'I love you.' He was like, 'I love you, too, Dad. Can I come over to your house?' "

How sad is that?! He didn't TALK to his son for five months?! Sure, seeing a son in Texas during the football season is tough, but Peterson has been inactive for weeks!

Hopefully the NFL's mandatory classes will teach this father what it means to be a parent, and how to deal with situations.

    It's a sad situation when a parent has to apologize to the public for having to discipline his child only to get him back from child services. Taking toys away, time out, nap, etc. my ass. This is why you have all the little douchebags out in society thinking they're privileged and that anything they is in their right.

    Now he's sorry he did it? Right after he was caught he said that is how you teach children and he would do it again. He's sorry now because he was prosecuted for harming his son and forced to sit out the football season. Peterson is a stinking bully and if I was the mother of that child I would make sure he never saw the child without a third party present.

    chanoc……….there's a difference between discipline and beating a 4 year old bloody. Guess what, time outs, taking things away, etc. do work…………

  4. 4

    Re: chanoc – Hey I got swatted with a belt from time to time when I was young and really misbehaved, but drawing blood puts this into a whole different category at least IMO.

    He is a disgusting monster and anyone who defends him is sick. He needs to be removed from the league permanently.
