Should Fans Stop Watching NFL Games?

Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson will be back on the field this weekend, even as  the team begins to feel fallout over the controversy.

On “New Day” Tuesday, Steve Almond, a contributing writer to “The New York Times Magazine” and The Boston Globe, said the move shows the NFL has “a cash register where normal human beings have a conscience, so they’re going to do whatever they need to do to keep the product going.”

The author of  "Against Football – One Fan's Reluctant Manifesto," said that if fans are outraged, the onus is on them to “stop watching the game, stop paying their salaries.”

Meanwhile, former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice is expected to appeal his indefinite suspension from the NFL by midnight.

CNN commentator and legal analyst Mel Robbins said Rice deserves another chance, but the NFL should stick to its six-game suspension rule because it hits the players where it hurts.

“Clearly, these guys do not respect women. They don’t respect kids," she said.

"But they do respect being pulled off the field.”

Former Man U Goalie Stops By New Day!

How do you prepare to play for a game as huge as the World Cup Final?

We asked legendary former goalkeeper for Manchester United Gary Bailey what it's like to walk into the arena on a game with so much pressure and we, of course, asked him who he'll be rooting for on Sunday.

Decades Later, Grandfather Will Get to Attend World Cup Final

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Brazilian grandfather is rewarded for saving his 1950 World Cup final ticket. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Joedir Belmont had a ticket to attend the final game of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Uruguay.

But he didn't go because he had to stay home with his sick mother.

He kept the ticket, and when he recently tried to donate it to FIFA for its new museum, he got a special surprise.

The organization exchanged his original voucher for a new one to this year's game.

Even better?

His two sons get to go with him too.
