I don't think he said "NFL players are actual slaves". Nor did Peterson and Mendenhall. What they all said - in one way or another - was that there are parallels, just as there are with folks working at Walmart.

The folks working at Walmart have a choice as well: work the suckiest job on the planet, or go on welfare. They don't have to work at Walmart. They have freedom. It's America, after all. Land of the free, and all that.
