    Adrian Peterson to plead not guilty

    "If the court asks for a plea tomorrow [and we do expect that to happen], it will very definitely be NOT guilty," Flood wrote in an email to ESPN.com on Tuesday. "We hope that a trial date is also discussed but don't yet know how the court's docket is looking."

    We shouldn't get our hopes up...this is not going to end quickly, or IMO, well...especially if AD doesn't show some serious remorse for injuring his son.


    Qui tacet, consentit.

  3. If December 1 is the date, is there any point in keeping him?

    That depends on whether he is willing to renegotiate his contract. Next year looks to be a better year IMO. We will have another draft and the defense will have been in Zimmer's system for a year. Bridgewater will have a year to learn Norv's system. I think we are going to be a very good team next year and having AP is only going to make us more dangerous.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Looks like his attorney will push for an earlier court case, possibly mid-November.

    Tentative Peterson trial date set

    A tentative date of Dec. 1 has been set for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to stand trial on a felony child abuse charge, his attorney, Rusty Hardin said Wednesday.

    Kevin Jairaj/USA TODAY SportsAdrian Peterson made his first court appearance in Texas on Wednesday since his indictment last month on a felony child abuse charge.

    Peterson did not enter a plea to the charge. Hardin's spokeswoman said Tuesday that the running back had planned to plead not guilty if he was asked to enter a plea on Wednesday.

    A spokesman for Peterson told ESPN's Michele Steele: "Adrian is going to trial -- he is not looking for a deal."

    He has already stated that he has received counseling for how to deal with punishing his kids in other ways. Although it really has not been reported in the press. Probably because it make his to human. And the press wants to keep him a monster. I do believe he indicated that he did this before the indictment even came down.
    In the last 15 years, Tampa Bay as more playoff wins than the Dallas Cowboys.

    He's finished in Minnesota.. He does not think to this day he did anything wrong. He'll get the jury to agree since they see things different down there. He'll then get suspended because he admitted it even though he will not get convicted. He's done for this year and the Vikings will cut him. It's too bad because with Bridgewater and the read option with Adrian would have been lethal , absolutely lethal. But that's Viking football.. One clusterfuk after another. My prediction is they cut him sooner than later.
