Adrian Peterson's Twitter rant includes comment saying Vikings asked him to take a pay cut

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com Disgruntled Vikings running back Adrian Peterson apparently claimed in a tweet Thursday that the team at some point has asked him to take a pay cut. Peterson, who missed 15 games last season because of a child abuse incident, has $44.25 million left on his contract, including $12.75 million for 2015, but none of it is guaranteed. A day after sending a statement to ESPN about not wanting a trade but wanting his contract reworked, Peterson went on a Twitter rant. “Ok great two sided!,’’ Peterson wrote in one tweet. “Well why when one party...

Red Sox broadcast shows bogus footage of Metrodome implosion

During the Twins-Red Sox broadcast on Boston’s NESN feed, footage of the Metrodome’s implosion was shown. That’s cool, except: 1) The Metrodome was never imploded in a big blast. It was, instead, taken down piece by piece. 2) The footage NESN showed was actually the Kingdome in 2000. 3) For some bizarre reason, on the video NESN showed, there was a roof digitally added the Kingdome, which was roofless at time of its implosion. Deadspin is all over the visuals, though we’ve added a frame grab (with our own text) from the NESN broadcast. This is bizarre. So bizarre. Guess you could say...
