Vikings RB Adrian Peterson Calls Ravens Fans 'Worst in the NFL'

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson took to Twitter after his team's 29-26 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens and wrote Baltimore has "got the worst fans in the NFL."

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has labeled Baltimore Ravens fans as the "worst fans in the NFL." 

After losing to the Ravens 29-26, the 2012 NFL MVP took to Twitter to voice out his displeasure with Ravens supporters. He wrote,"Wow talking about bad officiating & the worst fan base I've ever experience! They threw snow balls the entire 4q like lil kids. Smh."

The Baltimore Sun staff promptly wrote a response to Peterson's snowball-pelting allegations on Dec. 9. 

"Yo, Adrian, that's what happens when it snows. People throw snowballs. Worst fan experience? You clearly haven't played in Philadelphia during the snow. Fans there nail Santa with snowballs. 

"We'd be worried more, by the way, that your team lost the game. But that's just us.

"For all the fans who may have thrown snowballs your way, we sincerely apologize. They should have been escorted from the stadium. We do hope you have a happy holiday and we hope your injury is minor. You really are a tremendous player.

"And one more thing: If a snowball is headed your way, duck." 

Peterson sustained a sprained right foot injury in the second quarter and did not return, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press

The Vikings' star running back also criticized the officiating in Tomasson's report. He quipped,"That was terrible. Some bad officiating. Bad calls. But, you know, that happens sometimes." 

First, the Vikings thought a fumble by running back Toby Gerhart would be overturned in the first quarter after the review, but it wasn't. A Ravens touchdown ensued.

Gerhart vehemently disagreed with the officials' call.

"I felt like I had both knees down, and unfortunately, they saw it different. Immediately, I got up and went to the ref and pleaded my case and told him I was down. It went to review, and they saw it differently." 

Next, a pass interference pass on safety Robert Blanton paved the way for a one-yard touchdown reception by Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta. The two-point conversion gave Baltimore a 15-12 lead. 

Minnesota was on the receiving end of yet another pass interference call in the fourth quarter. This time, linebacker Chad Greenway was the culprit, nullifying an Andrew Sendejo interception. 

The Vikings thought they had the game won when rookie wide receiver/kick return specialist Cordarelle Patterson found the end zone for a 79-yard touchdown to give them a 26-22 lead. 

However, Baltimore wide receiver Marlon Brown hauled in a nine-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Flacco to seal the game's outcome, 29-26, with just four seconds left to play.

Minnesota dropped to 3-9-1 for the season while Baltimore upped its record to 7-6.

Oct 20 2014 6:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was paraded as a fantasy sleeper before the 2014 NFL season commenced. Injuries and overall ineffectiveness have rendered him a disappointment in his first career opportunity to be a feature back. Denard Robinson capitalized on the wide-open backfield situation in Jacksonville this last Sunday, running for 127 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the Jags' 24-6 victor ...

Constructing a new deal with the NFLPA could take a while, so the league may opt to move ahead with a separate policy for non-players. Facing a lengthy negotiation process with its players union, the NFL may decide to adopt a two-step approach to implementing a new personal conduct policy. The league is mulling over a plan to create two separate policies -- one for its players and another for all other employees -- in order to expedite the process, according to Peter King of ...
