Vikings’ Peterson banned, slammed for ‘no remorse’

0

NEW YORK: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was banned for the rest of the 2014 season on Tuesday as National Football League (NFL) chiefs accused the star of showing no remorse for beating his four-year-old son with a tree branch. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league will not consider reinstating Peterson before April 15 of next year and ordered him to undergo counseling, therapy and treatment. The league players’ union said it will appeal and hope to have the case heard by an independent arbitrator.
