    The Vikings volunteered their time and money Friday to construct a school playground in a rough Twin Cities-area neighborhood....

    I love when the players go out in the community and help kids. More players need to be doing this kind of stuff.

    I agree with that, but the NFL makes up for it. I am so sick of the commercial on NFL network of Peterson doing drills with kids. He spends a few hours(at most) with some kids and it is played atleast once an hour for a year. I don't like when companies spend more advertising there good deeds than they do on the good deeds themselves.

    The point of those advertisements is to get regular people off their asses and helping out in the community.
    Its supposed to say "Look, Adrian Peterson can find time to help the community, you should too", not "Look at how great we are for helping out!"
