NY Post Columnist Questions Adrian Peterson’s Character, “Calls Him A Criminal”


Phil Mushnick is trolling again, and this time he’s trying to hurt feelings.

Mushnick has a reputation for being a super troll, a guy that stirs the pot up on any subject and is allowed to freely state any opinion he wants courtesy of the New York Post.

In his latest New York Post column, Mushnick essentially compares Peterson to Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong in the way that we as sports fans and media personalities build them up.

Mushnick evidence of course was Peterson’s reckless driving charge in 2009, and Peterson’s resisting arrest charge from last year.

Thus it was unsurprising Peterson’s downside went ignored. In 2009, he was busted for driving 109 mph in a 55 mph zone. He dismissed that as no big deal, which was doubly disturbing — his older, full brother was killed by a reckless driver.

Last summer, Peterson was in a club when he and friends were informed that it was closing time, past 2 a.m. Apparently, Peterson and pals felt they would decide when it was time to close. The police report noted three cops were needed to subdue Peterson.

He spent the rest of the night in jail, arrested for resisting arrest (a charge that was later dismissed).

Of course Mushnick was going to go for Peterson’s jugular, and claimed his biggest character flaw was was playing in the Minnesota Vikings’ game on Sunday, two days after his 2-year-old son passed away.

Still, I’m stuck with what I’ve got. And it’s sickening the NFL’s latest MVP, hours after his son died — allegedly murdered — declared he was “ready to roll,” ready to play football.

Me? I’d be fighting for breath, my knees weak with grief, demanding to know why, who, how. Then, I suspect, I’d seethe with rage, swearing retribution. I even think I’d take off a day or two from work. Maybe a week.

Mushnick then did the what we should expect a guy like him to do, still piggybacking for more attention, he blamed the young boy’s death on Peterson.

Essentially saying that because A.P. is this million dollar athlete, he “didn’t provide the child with a suitable home environment.”

With his resources, how could Peterson, the NFL’s MVP, have allowed his son to remain in such an environment? Did he not know, or not care? Or not care to know? Or not know to care?

Peterson couldn’t have provided his son a better life, a longer life?

Money can’t buy love, but having signed a $96 million deal, he could not have provided his child — apparently his second from a “baby mama” — a safe home?

Phil Mushnick will continue to write and have garbage like this printed as long as we the media, sports fans, and daily newspaper readers continue to allow him to get famous off of spewing garbage.

Phil Mushnick is a professional and works for one of the top papers in america.  So  I find it hard to believe that Mr. Mushnick didn’t do  his research and was unaware that Adrian Peterson just recently found out that he had another two year old son. 

Mushnick is judgmental and pompous, yet a guy with a nose for critiquing offers no insight into his background or his experiences a child.

He speaks of baby mama’s, Peterson’s upbringing and parents as if a set stigma growing up is suppose to define all of us.

  • Phill mushnick you sir is an asshole i i pray to god tha after mr. Peterson after reading this pice of gardage article he look for you and punch holes in you face then he could take a day or two from work dick.

  • Mushnick has been attacking athletes, schools, and analysts for years. In the 90s he mainly focused on Pro Wrestling and Vince McMahon attacking them for steroids, sexism, and anything else he could think of. Mushnick hates sports but makes it his job to report any athlete or analyst who doesnt meet his moral code. He also spends about 50% of his time attacking radio host, Mike Francesca who actually is insufferable. Mushnick though is relentless in his attacks and I’ve often wondered who the hell is this guy writing for. The sensationalist NY Post caters to sports, scandal, and Gambling more than almost any paper in the US. If Mr Mushnick actually believed what he wrote, he’d be writing for NPR

  • Calling out a writer for being insensitive, judgmental and trolling all in the name of getting attention…HELLO…you do know what site you’re writing for right??

  • The 1st amendment is a bad thing isn’t it. I don’t agree with anything the guy said but he has a right to say it and here’s the GREAY THING about AMERICA….. you don’t like him….DON’T READ WHAT HE WRITES.

    FREEDOM……. isn’t it GREAT?????

  • This is a such a stupid and careless article!! I mean why excuse this joker for not taking care of his boy!!! Seriously.. $92 million could buy a nice apartment for all his baby mammas. But enough on that. Just two final thoughts..

    1) why not just buy one big house so all his whores could live at one spot. Economy if scales would take over and things would cost much less…

    2) going forward, just pay for a professional, like tiger.. No babies – no problems…
