The NFL gets called to the carpet and are the Dodgers winning despite dysfunction? It's what we're talking about on our regular sports chat with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky.

The NFL

In the span of 5 days, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson went from being deactivated, to activated...and now exempt. That means he can't play or practice but he will get paid. Peterson has been accused of child abuse for beating his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. The Vikings were praised Friday for moving quickly, then they were ripped for bringing him back... how do they look today?

The NFL players union is appealing the Ray Rice suspension and they are asking everyone to avoid rushing to judgement on all of these cases. Does the public want to hear that right now?

And right before this past Sunday's slate of games began, ESPN anchor Hannah Storm delivered a monologue questioning the NFL's integrity:


Dysfunctional Dodgers 

The Dodgers hold a 3 game on the Giants and are looking good as the playoffs approach...that is, as long as you don't look in the dugout. On Monday, outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig had a heated discussion that no one on the team seems to want to talk about. Despite their solid season so far, some have called the team "dysfunctional"....manager Don Mattingly compared the team to the early 70s Oakland A's who at times literally fought each other but won 3 straight World Series.
