Adrian Peterson

Strong Fan Support

During Metrodome Arrival

Adrian Peterson arrived to the Metrodome this morning with his game face on -- and fans waiting outside gave AP tons of love for showing up.

Peterson is set to face the Carolina Panthers any moment now -- and judging by the video ... fans inside the arena are gonna go OFF when AP hits the field.

As we previously reported ... Adrian insisted on playing in today's game following the death of his 2-year-old son and earlier today said, "God wants good to come from it."

He added, "We mourn and grieve but heaven had the baddest welcoming party for my son ... That knowledge gives me peace."

Why is everyone so sympathetic to a mother who was DATING A VIOLENT EX CON and had the criminally poor judgement to leave her child in HIS CARE?! She should be arrested too for criminal negligience! That poor woman who was so promiscuous she didnt even know whose kid it was until recently when she went looking for a pay day and apparently has the common sense and maternal instinct of rock that she leaves her defenseless 2 year old around this animal she sleeps with?! Call her what you like but please stop referring to her as a MOTHER, shes anything but.

LOOK... REAL REASON AP IS APPEARING DISTANT AND NONCHALANT ABOUT THE KID IS BECUZ IT IMPLIES HE WAS HOOKING UP WITH A WHITE CHIC ON THE SIDE. THE SAME TIME PERIOD HE WAS ENGAGED TO HIS FIANCE. HIS 2 KIDS - AP JR AND THE DEAD KID, TY ARE ABOUT THE SAME AGE. PROOF THE DOUCHE BAG WAS BANGING 2 CHICS AT THE SAME TIME AND HAD 2 KIDS WITH 2 DIFFERENT BABYMAMAS! POINT BLANK!! HENCE, THE EMOTIONAL DISCONNECT WITH HIS DEAD SON AND HIS FIANCE'S RANTS ON TWITTER MAKING THE DEAD KID LOOK LIKE HE DONT MEAN ANYTHING. #TRUTH!!

A sad situation. The problem stems from folks having multiple illegitimate children with multiple partners. The fathers are not in the children's lives, and a lot of the children become victims of crime.

Oh please, he didn't know that poor kid, and shame on people for applauding him for showing up to a football game. Too bad he didn't put the same effort into getting to know his kid, and making sure he was in an appropriate environment. He's no hero.

Seriously. You couldn't miss one game to mourn the death of your baby? You dishonour his memory.
