You don't really know what analogy means do you? It doesn't mean two things mirror each other. It means there is a similarity that can draw a comparision. Adrian Peterson is being used to make lots of money for "the man" (as is pretty much everyone of any employment value -- I bring in millions of dollars to my company and make a very average salary) and if he choses to stay in his given field of employment, he has no choice of where he works (most likely unlike you and I). I'm not saying that you or I should agree with the analogy (I would never in a million years use it.), but it is a reasonable analogy to make and has been made many many times.
