    How involved was Peterson with the poor baby?

    I'm not downplaying the situation at all, just wondering.

    Doesn't sound like he was involved at all. He recently had a paternity test done so it doesn't sound like he ever believed it was his.

    Which could be the reason he is playing on Sunday, but who knows he might would have played even if he and the child were close

    Sad situation either way.

    This piece of **** has a history of violence against women and children.

    I agree with LeBron. This guy is gonna get DESTROYED in prison, and he'll deserve every bit of it.
