The Minnesota Vikings have had a change of heart. Adrian Peterson has been suspended indefinitely after the team placed him on the Commissioners Exemption List. Peterson will not be allowed around the team in any capacity until the legal proceedings have been resolved. This is a reversal of the teams previous decision, where it announced Peterson was being reactivated for this Sundays game against the New Orleans Saints. Section 17.14(a) of the NFL Constitution and Bylaws provides that the "Exemption list is a special player status available to clubs only in unusual circumstances". The same Policy also indicates that "any request must be sent to the Commissioner", should "include complete facts and reasons" to support the request and that "only the Commissioner has the authority to place a player on the Exemption List". Getting the league to put a player on this list is a big deal. Indeed, a team needs to show "unusual circumstances", which at law means a high standard. This can be very tough to meet. This makes sense. If the league could impose this type of sweeping discipline on a player at will, it would likely do so more often. By requiring "unusual circumstances", the power of the league is appropriately narrowed. The Exemption List has been used in the past by the NFL. After serving his Bounty Gate suspension, Jonathan Vilma wasnt ready to return and was able to get himself on the Exemption List. As well, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Jeff Demps was placed on the list when he wanted to pursue a track career. Michael Vick was also subject to this exemption after being released from prison and signing with the Eagles. In each of these cases, the assumption is that the player consented to the exemption, or frankly sought it out. The case of Peterson, though, is a bit different. As per the NFL CBA, the Vikings could only suspend or deactivate Peterson for a maximum of four games. Apart from that, it had the option of cutting Peterson or playing him. The NFL also could have suspended Peterson under its Personal Conduct Policy (which incidentally now incorporates the new domestic violence and assault guidelines), but that suspension would have likely been limited in duration and would have expired before the legal case was resolved. If the NFL attempted to suspend Peterson for the entire season, it would have been hit with a grievance by the NFLPA. So the league and Vikings needed to find a way to suspend Peterson indefinitely without risking a grievance or even a potential lawsuit. And thats when it turned to the Commissioners Exemption List. However, given the high standard that had to be met in order to unilaterally place a player on the Exemption List, it would have made good sense to secure Petersons consent to the indefinite suspension. Without it, the NFL would have once again risked a grievance being filed by the NFLPA resulting in the story continuing to loom over the league. How do you gain consent in a case like this? Money. For this reason, it was not a surprise to learn this morning that Peterson was being suspended indefinitely with pay. This means that Peterson consented to the suspension. The NFLPA confirmed this when it said that "Adrian Peterson made a decision to take a voluntary leave with pay to take care of his personal and legal issues." So Peterson is now suspended until the legal proceedings are resolved. With a likely Court date in early 2015, it seems probable that Peterson will not return this season. He could try and cut a deal with the prosecution, although that could take time. Jonathan Lucroy Jersey . Louis Cardinals have agreed to a one-year contract. Custom Texas Rangers Jerseys . 1. Did the Senators trade the wrong goalie? Lets make one thing clear: The Ottawa Senators acquired Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues for one reason and one reason alone. The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists detailed in a report how Russian and international journalists have been harassed and prevented from covering sensitive stories in Sochi such as the abuse of migrant workers and environmental issues. Nomar Mazara Jersey . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3. Carlos Gomez Jersey . It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of genuine world class ability.SILVERSTONE, England -- Formula One championship leader Nico Rosberg claimed pole position for the British Grand Prix, surpassing Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton on the last lap of a shock-filled and rain-hit qualifying session Saturday. The German secured pole by persevering on his final lap in drying conditions as Hamilton -- who had the fastest time up to that point --- aborted his lap and pulled into the pits.dddddddddddd. The Briton qualified a disappointing sixth for his home race. Defending four-time champion Sebastian Vettel qualified second for Red Bull and McLarens Jenson Button a surprising third. Both Ferraris and both Williams were eliminated in the opening Q1 session and will start near the back of the grid.
