Longtime Green Bay Packers beat writer Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, recently received the wrong type of attention when he wrote up a column suggesting that the team should try to sign free agent running back Adrian Peterson. 

Seems innocent enough until you keep reading.

While discussing Peterson’s past, which includes a misdemeanor charge following his assault on his four-year-old son a few years ago, Dougherty used some words that have since been removed from Packers.com.

That was so bad that the newspaper had to release a statement later:

“Note to readers: A paragraph in an earlier version of Pete Dougherty’s column that included a reference to Peterson’s punishment of his 4-year-old son being connected to America’s history of slavery was removed. It was poorly reasoned and insensitive. We apologize to all readers who were offended.”
