Being arguably the best football player on the planet certainly has its benefits. Fame fortune accolades adulation you name it. No one is going to deny that it’s a pretty good gig. But it certainly can have its minor yet irritating drawbacks especially in this day and age. Just ask Minnesota Vikings running back and reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson. While there are probably far worse annoyances and issues Peterson has to deal with on a daily basis that are the more-than-fair price he pays for the aforementioned fame and fortune one thing that definitely can stick in his craw from time to time are boneheaded fantasy football owners who continuously give him grief if he doesn’t perform well enough on Sundays to help them win their little fantasy games. In fact Peterson calls dealing with the dolts “worksome.” See? It’s so annoying Peterson had to make up a word to articulate just how bothersome it can be to an NFL football player. For the Win’s Chris Strauss asked Peterson about fantasy football partly due to recent comments by Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice on Twitter about it in which he stated he doesn’t like fantasy football anymore because of the “hateful and spiteful” nature of comments that have been directed at him because of fantasy. Said Peterson on the topic of having to deal with over-aggressive vitriolic fantasy football owners: “I don’t wanna say it’s so worksome but it gets worksome. You’ve got so many different personalities out there. You’ve got people that’s cheering you on and people that beat you down because you didn’t score a touchdown or get this amount of yards. So it’s cool but then again it’s a headache as well. It’s more of a headache if you let it bother you which I don’t.”
