Vikings begin to push back against Kluwe

Kluwe Getty Images

For months, former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe (a friend of PFT) has made public remarks, claims, and contentions about the circumstances surrounding his release and the work atmosphere in Minnesota.  The Vikings have largely remained silent, until now.

In a memorandum analyzing Kluwe’s allegations, released Friday night by the Vikings, Donald Prophete of the Littler Mendelson law firm specifically points out workplace conduct by Kluwe that would potentially undermine the notion that he was offended by homophobic comments from special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer.

For example, the report notes that Vikings kicker Blair Walsh described Kluwe as someone who “loves the attention,” “was focused on everything but football,” and wanted to be in the spotlight. Far more relevant to the substance of Kluwe’s complaint was the conclusion in the report that Kluwe made light of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State.

“Kluwe also made fun of the Vikings’ then Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Tom Kanavy, an alumnus of‒and former coach at‒Penn State University, concerning the Jerry Sandusky/Penn State situation,” the memo states. “In his interview, Kanavy explained that Kluwe cut the seat out of his pants and then put them on to imitate a victim of the Penn State child-abuse scandal. According to Kanavy, Kluwe said that he was a ‘Penn State victim’ and to ‘stay away’ from him while his buttocks were exposed.

Kluwe told investigators that he did not recall that behavior, but that “it’s very possible” that he did it.

“It didn’t stick in my mind, but, you know, I — it is definitely — if people said they saw it, then yeah, I probably did it,” Kluwe said.

This information arguably is relevant to whether Kluwe was truly offended by homophobic comments from Priefer. As a practical matter, it lets Kluwe know that, if he sues, the Vikings will attack him as zealously as he attacks them.

We’ll have more throughout the evening as the 29-page memo is fully digested.

    “I don’t recall that behavior but it’s very possible that I did it.”

    So you did it then….

  2. heathn09 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:45 PM

    How is that something that you can’t remember if you did? Were you also drunk at the time?

  3. mcconne77 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:45 PM

    I’m offended. Who can I sue?

  4. modhairken says: Jul 18, 2014 8:46 PM

    Well, well, well. Mr. Self-Important, Self-Righteous ain’t so righteous, now is he?

    “Kluwe told investigators that he did not recall that behavior, but that ‘it’s very possible” that he did it.'”

    You know you did it, Kluwe. Now go back to anonymity you hypocrite, child abuse endorser.

  5. djdvd says: Jul 18, 2014 8:47 PM

    Now what did you learn Chris? You can’t fight the NFL. Especially if you’re just as bad as they are.

  6. rightwingguy says: Jul 18, 2014 8:47 PM

    Kluwe is a tool. #yourjustapunter

    Skol!

  7. politicallyincorrect says: Jul 18, 2014 8:47 PM

    something tells me that this Kluwe likes men pushing back at him

  8. billbrasky72 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:48 PM

    Mess with the Viking, get the horns.

  9. bucsorbust says: Jul 18, 2014 8:49 PM

    As they say, the foot’s on the other hand now, eh? Looks like a guy who’s not so much a mistreated player for his sexual orientation as much as he is really just turning out to be jerk–trying to get something for nothing.

  10. FinFan68 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:49 PM

    Kluwe is a washed up punter and is using his talent as an attention wh*re to try to extort some sort of settlement from the Vikings in a case he holds no legal standing. End of story. Moving on…

  11. cfballfan1 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:49 PM

    Kline is a hypocritical, money – grubbing POS who is frantically grasping at whatever fleeting fame / influence that being a punter in the NFL brings. The Penn State reference just shows how this jackass thinks he can game the system. If I were running the Vikings my response would be: see you in court A-Hole.

  12. viking10 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:50 PM

    The last Kluwe supporter be sure to turn the light off on the way out. Goodnight everyone.

  13. FlashPatterson says: Jul 18, 2014 8:50 PM

    Hmm interesting… well it’s really not. The only people who are taking this whole thing seriously are people who hate the Vikings no matter what happens.

  14. leagueobservr says: Jul 18, 2014 8:51 PM

    Good grief. Send in the clowns… :-D

  15. norwegianwud says: Jul 18, 2014 8:51 PM

    Pretty sure he’s an attention monger. I used to like the guy but that statement by Walsh says he had no problem making jest of victims of sexual abuse in the literal sense.
    That’s really funny, Kluwe. Your career is over due to your lack of focus on the game of football while thinking you are a fighter for justice, when you indulged in the same or worse of what you are accusing. Need some more “attention” now?
    What just got REAL?

  16. dtownsportslions says: Jul 18, 2014 8:51 PM

    I hate the Bikings but I hate Kluwe more

  17. ivanpavlov0000 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:52 PM

    They’re making it clear to Kluwe that they’ve been stockpiling dirt to throw back at him. I hope he stands up to them and proceeds with the lawsuit anyway. That’s the only way the report will become a matter of public record.

  18. thegreatgabbert says: Jul 18, 2014 8:55 PM

    “If people say they saw it, then yeah, I probably did it.

    ……But if no one saw it, I would never do such a tasteless thing.”.

  19. braven4evr says: Jul 18, 2014 8:55 PM

    Why doesn’t this guy just go away? This does sound about right…he always has something to say or wants to be seen/talked about.

  20. kagey7 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:56 PM

    Making light of an innocent child being sexually abused is sick and in my mind is far worse than any verbal slur made by another. I do hope that if this is true that pft reconsider their friendship with Kyle and distance themselves from such an insensitive person.

  21. seahawkfanfrom1970s says: Jul 18, 2014 8:57 PM

    That sound you hear is the sound of a hypocrite getting BUSTED.

  22. shakespeare22 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:57 PM

    Between this and Bullygate (the most overblown story of the past 100 years) it’s getting ridiculous. People are too sensitive anymore. Get over it already.

  23. kagey7 says: Jul 18, 2014 8:58 PM

    Wasn’t Kyle but kluwe. Stupid spell check.

  24. purplepillager says: Jul 18, 2014 8:58 PM

    I hope the Vikings shut up Kluwe once and for all.

    To Christopher…You were an average punter! You were replaced because you no longer could hold a roster spot! You are not as smart as you think you are! You’re not bigger than the game! Nobody cares what you think! Go away!!! If you don’t, Ziggy is gonna put the beat down on you!

    Unfortunately, Kluwe believes he’s so smart that he can take them on. After all the mud throwing that Kluwe’s been doing this past 6 months, it’ll be fun to watch his, or what’s left of it, character be dismantled.

  25. lowdownmofo says: Jul 18, 2014 8:59 PM

    Vikings begin to push back against Kluwe…
    With Bustwater’s tiny hands.

  26. lsuzilla says: Jul 18, 2014 9:00 PM

    I hope the Vikings dish the dirt on this drama queen scumbag.

  27. bowsi says: Jul 18, 2014 9:00 PM

    We’ll Chris always had a sense of humor, might be a good time to take the $100,000 all kidding aside!

  28. silentfreedom5 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:00 PM

    Kluwe loves the spotlight. Even if he loses dragging him through the mud just gives him what he wants. This isnt close to being over. The report also mentioned that every expert interviewed would have cut Kluwe because of his performance age and salary.

  29. deljzc says: Jul 18, 2014 9:01 PM

    Rut roh….

  30. norwegianwud says: Jul 18, 2014 9:01 PM

    Actually, Kanavy’s response, along with Walsh… My kind apologies.

  31. purple1967 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:02 PM

    pwned!!! Go away dude, just go away!!

  32. crapsandviche says: Jul 18, 2014 9:02 PM

    RUT ROW!!!!!!!! You mean Chris isn’t the upstanding citizen for the downtroden and abused like he claims he is? See the problem with Kluwes case is any dirt the Vikes can dig up, then can use. Any person in the NFL, college, high school, etc can say Kluwe said such and such…… Welcome to personal execution Kluwe

  33. thevikingsarewherecareersend says: Jul 18, 2014 9:04 PM

    What a pitiful franchise. The black hole of the north.

  34. restorativejusticeprogram says: Jul 18, 2014 9:04 PM

    I thought Kluwe showed himself to be a bad team mate in trying to destroy a man’s ability to work in the industry for b.s reasons.

    Politically correct thinking is destroying freedom in America.

  35. justintuckrule says: Jul 18, 2014 9:06 PM

    Just like Martin. He went along with it to fit in.

    Time to change some attitudes.

    Good luck Chris kluwe!

  36. mdd913 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:06 PM

    I’m torn here … I can’t stand the Vikings and their whiny fans, but Kluwe is almost the embodiment of their awfulness. I guess I can take solace in the fact that both sides look petty, stupid and childish, which let’s be honest sums up the Vikings organization perfectly anyway.

  37. purpleppleeaters says: Jul 18, 2014 9:06 PM

    Ohhhh…………this is rich!! Nice work, Kluwe. Can you say, “hypocrite?”

    What a complete fraud.

    I hope the LGBT community publicly denounces any association with you.

    And this officially ends Kluwe’s 15 minutes. Bravo.

  38. youpeopleareallthesame says: Jul 18, 2014 9:09 PM

    Ohhh man, that Penn State comment he allegedly made is pretty damning. Especially since he admits it’s possible that he did say it..

    Kluwe should cut his losses and go play World of Warcraft.

  39. moosedoggie says: Jul 18, 2014 9:13 PM

    Well now… this could get interesting.

  40. garyridgway says: Jul 18, 2014 9:13 PM

    We’ll have more throughout the evening as the 29-page memo is fully digested….

    And nobody will care

  41. genericcommenter says: Jul 18, 2014 9:13 PM

    “Also interesting how so many are willing to follow the Vikings’ false lead with the leak about me, and not the admission of Priefer’s guilt.”

  42. sumkat says: Jul 18, 2014 9:14 PM

    LOL

    Talk about your bad headlines

  43. bobnelsonjr says: Jul 18, 2014 9:14 PM

    The vikings admit that they took no action for such behavior and that it therefore is normal for the viking locker room.

    It will only get worse for the vikings.

  44. vaughnjoe says: Jul 18, 2014 9:15 PM

    Yeah very unprofessional conduct going on there. Kluwe hasnt a leg to stand on in this case.

  45. ripwarrior says: Jul 18, 2014 9:15 PM

    Odd that he viciously attacks people that do not support gay marriage yet he find a way to make light of children being molested.

  46. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Jul 18, 2014 9:17 PM

    Took 7 months for them to come up with that strategy? I would have thought a couple of goombas from jersey would have thought of that approach 6 months ago…

  47. letmesetyoustraight says: Jul 18, 2014 9:17 PM

    Kluwe says, “It didn’t stick in my mind, but, you know, I — it is definitely — if people said they saw it, then yeah, I probably did it.”

    Really? You cut the butt end of your pants out and paraded around and you don’t remember it? Really?

    Kluwe, you’re an attention-whoring piece of dung. Enjoy unemployment.

  48. samapoc says: Jul 18, 2014 9:17 PM

    So the Vikings can’t defend themselves, and instead engage in a smear campaign? This is going to carry us to the regular season…

  49. barrybondsisthealltimehomerunking says: Jul 18, 2014 9:17 PM

    Kluwe is pathetic and just needs to go away

  50. ninjapleazee says: Jul 18, 2014 9:17 PM

    Wow. Klue is a tool.

  51. purple4life2 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:18 PM

    Karma for the idiot kicker.

  52. thepnutgallery2011 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:18 PM

    He didn’t recall the behavior, but it’s possible he did it? It’s obvious that this joker on his way to running for office when this is all said and done. (Could that be sooner rather than later please?)

  53. NFLisnotreality says: Jul 18, 2014 9:20 PM

    Find it interesting that no one is jumping in to comment on the whole Kluwe thing but if you post a Washington Football club post BOOM! The internet just about blows up… Why is that?

  54. coachbeck says: Jul 18, 2014 9:21 PM

    Kluwe is a bad person. Has a cold heart. He just isn’t a good man.

  55. andreboy1 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:22 PM

    Kluwe is a scumbag

  56. intelligent cement says: Jul 18, 2014 9:22 PM

    Humor in children being sexually assaulted?
    You the man, Kluwe.

  57. jackericsson says: Jul 18, 2014 9:22 PM

    “Doesn’t have a” Kluwe is showing some inconsistency at the very least. Or totally insensitive toward victims of sexual assault. Can he now- just- go- away!!! Never has someone accomplished so little, received so much attention. He makes the Kardasians look credible.

  58. duff23 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:31 PM

    HaHaHaHa!
    Kluwe made this bed, now he can lay in it

  59. Joe Schmoe says: Jul 18, 2014 9:32 PM

    Pot, meet kettle.

  60. vikesalldaybaby says: Jul 18, 2014 9:33 PM

    Haha kluwe. What a hypocrite. Classic.

  61. blackdb says: Jul 18, 2014 9:33 PM

    It will be interesting to see if this site goes after Kluwe with as much eagerness as they go after coaches and teams. I feel his remarks about the PSU scandal are disgusting and more offensive than what he has claimed against the Vikings. However I’m sure this site will always back the player.

  62. seachicken64 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:35 PM

    Glad they got that dirty secret out of the closet.

  63. jimmy53 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:36 PM

    Two wrongs don’t make a right. The investigation was done, they found in favor of Kluwe, and they suspended the coach.

    They all need to move on…

  64. zeeman911 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:36 PM

    It’s pretty obvious, Kluwe was so hurt by the comments because he is in the closet still, no straight man would give 2 craps about that statement…

  65. rcali says: Jul 18, 2014 9:37 PM

    It’s just got “Real”

  66. thompgk says: Jul 18, 2014 9:44 PM

    If he makes fun of child anal rape he has absolutely no case for anything

    That is sick

  67. vikingsfan4life says: Jul 18, 2014 9:47 PM

    And boom goes the dynamite. Kluwe may be a friend of PFT but this circus just blew up in his face. He admitted he made remake equally insensitive to what Priefer allegedly said. Pot calls kettle black.

  68. kickinpuppies says: Jul 18, 2014 9:48 PM

    Poor lil Mike Freeman!

  69. elrock7 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:51 PM

    I think Kluwe is in fact, truly clueless.

  70. angelogiaquinto18 says: Jul 18, 2014 9:53 PM

    Making fun of penn state situation far worse then saying “nuke the gays” as a passing joke probably….Kluwe should just shut up, drop all lawsuits, and be happy collection his nfl pension for being in the league 5+ years…..

  71. pappavike says: Jul 18, 2014 9:56 PM

    Kluwe’s credibility just went down the drain along with his football career. Vikes are better off without him!!

  72. Eutaw's Finest says: Jul 18, 2014 9:56 PM

    Good for the Vikes. Don’t let this little attention needy punk take you down.

  73. thatswhatimsayin says: Jul 18, 2014 9:58 PM

    Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that Chris Kluwe has an autographed copy of “Rules for Radicals”on his nightstand?

  74. drunkwino says: Jul 18, 2014 9:59 PM

    Yeah, we should have problems when someone makes fun of child molested. They might get their poor little feelings hurt.

  75. rolltide510 says: Jul 18, 2014 10:13 PM

    He doesn’t remember cutting a hole in his pants and claiming to be a rape victim, but he concedes if people say its true, it probably is?

    Is he on qualudes or something?

  76. ragnarthegreat says: Jul 18, 2014 10:20 PM

    god if he doesn’t temember doing this, what sorts of things was he doing and how often that this one could slip his mind?

  77. thestrategyexpert says: Jul 18, 2014 10:28 PM

    Well that’s pretty stupid and immature. At least he is showing some transparency in being willing to acknowledge that it probably happened that way, so hopefully he can learn from it and grow and put effort towards more refined times in the future.

    It would be very relevant to know more of his thoughts at the time regarding the Penn St. headline stories and how he reacted to that or was affected by that news to try and help explain what would prompt him to think to conduct himself with that kind of behavior in the first place. Was he in a disturbed state and crying out for attention to the issue, or was he bullying the coach, or understanding that rude crude insult humor was acceptable and having very poor judgment to think that was funny?

    This is a complicated case with several different intertwining issues that is definitely going to need to be closely and deeply examined to understand the flow of the entire story.

  78. metrocritical says: Jul 18, 2014 10:32 PM

    The case will likely drag on and on but it’s already incredibly tiresome.

    In that order.

  80. gtodriver says: Jul 18, 2014 10:40 PM

    So much for Kluwe’s lawsuit. His actions aren’t any different than what he has accused Prefer of. How can he claim he was offended?

    I can’t even imagine joking about the sexual abuse of a child.

  81. pftthoughtpolicemostwanted says: Jul 18, 2014 10:43 PM

    Congrats bro, now no other team will ever sign an outspoken liberal because they are afraid of being sued for thin-skinned butthurtedness.

  82. einherjer00 says: Jul 18, 2014 10:49 PM

    To be fair, we can’t expect Kluwe to remember every time he’s walked around with the seat cut out of his pants.

  83. vickspuppy says: Jul 18, 2014 10:53 PM

    Gotta love that headline… Just like sheep on the edge of a cliff.

    So the Vikings are really the catchers

  85. steeldominance says: Jul 18, 2014 10:58 PM

    In other words, quit now Kluwe before you become the week long laughing stock of professional sports.

  86. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Jul 18, 2014 11:18 PM

    There’s one big difference. Kluwe didn’t get Priefer fired. Yet.

  87. REDSKINSFOREVER says: Jul 18, 2014 11:23 PM

    Wow, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Kluwe is one big POS!!!!

    I’m glad the vikes cut him and he is now out of the nfl forever.

  88. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Jul 18, 2014 11:25 PM

    Vikes are a classless and tasteless organization. Someone once said that.

  89. taintedsaints2009 says: Jul 18, 2014 11:26 PM

    Good I hope this training coach sues kluwe so kluwe can see how ridiculous it is to be used for something you said

  90. The Doctor says: Jul 18, 2014 11:26 PM

    Kluwe is a hypocrite looking for his 15 minutes of fame. He got cut because for every 50 yard punt, he had a 3o yard shank at the worst times. And he repeatedly kicked to the other teams most dangerous returner instead of kicking out of bounds. He sucked as a punter, and now we find out that he is just a crybaby hypocrite. What a loser.

  91. packersaregod says: Jul 18, 2014 11:32 PM

    Kluwe, I’m glad you stirred up all of this trouble to make sure we knew you were a douche bag.

    “For months, former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe (a friend of PFT)”
    ====================================

    No bias there.

  93. stampnhawk says: Jul 18, 2014 11:39 PM

    “Arguably relevant” At best it shows he’s no better or morally superior to the people he’s accusing, in legal speak or otherwise.

    At worst, his actions and comments are arguably much more offensive as the ribbing he took, and to boot, his simple dismissal of that behavior is arrogance at it’s finest and shows how empty his allegations really are.

  94. mcbenersons says: Jul 18, 2014 11:41 PM

    An end to the human race in two steps:

    Step 1. We put all the bigots on an island and then nuke it until it glows.

    Step 2. We put all the killers on an island and nuke it until it glows…

    revenge doesn’t work….ever. Neither does taking something through violence.

    In my uneducated opinion…
    Priefer needs to learn from his mistakes and get to know and appreciate people who are different than him.

    Kluwe needs to stop trying to make himself look like a hero and activist while using revenge and hate as his tactics.

  95. modhairken says: Jul 19, 2014 12:00 AM

    And why is the article entitled “Vikings begin to push back against Kluwe” instead of “Kluwe exposed as pedophilia jokester””

  100. psly2124 says: Jul 19, 2014 12:14 AM

    I always knew Kluwe was a scumbag. What type of sick person makes fun of children getting molested. Where is the public apology from Kluwe. Everyone else has to do it, why is he getting a pass because he supports gay marriage. So children getting molested is less important then gay marriage. Very sick individuals.

  101. wheels579 says: Jul 19, 2014 12:15 AM

    So what? This is simply a clumsy attempt to deflect. We’re supposed to believe a former player’s crude prank is equal to the team harboring a bigot – a bigot who was not fired after lying to investigators about his conduct in this matter? The league needs to step in here in response to Zygi’s incompetence.

  102. undeadjesus says: Jul 19, 2014 12:19 AM

    I’m sure Kluwe will try to spin this and paint himself as the victim again. The more he speaks and raises a stink in the media, the more he looks like a juvenile, petty, tactless, self-righteous twit.

    He’s been hiding behind his “activism” and using it like a shield to deflect any criticism aimed at him. This isn’t about being an advocate for LGBT rights and other social-justice-warrior stuff. This is, and has always been, about Kluwe.

  103. mtheparrothead says: Jul 19, 2014 12:25 AM

  104. Aaron Rodgers has Tiny Hands says: Jul 19, 2014 12:43 AM

    I really wish Kluwe were still employed by the Vikings. Then they could suspend him and send him to sensitivity training.

  105. Aaron Rodgers has Tiny Hands says: Jul 19, 2014 12:45 AM

    “Gee, I don’t remember cutting a hole in my pants to expose my buttocks to make light of child abuse, but that sure sounds like something I would do!”

    What else did he do if he can’t even remember something like that?

  106. wfi801 says: Jul 19, 2014 12:45 AM

    This attention getter has talked himself out of any chance of future employment. He’s too much of a headache.

  107. whosgotitbetterthanruss says: Jul 19, 2014 12:48 AM

    Kluwe, you were never paid to think – you were paid to play. And you could not do that; that’s why you are no longer in the league.

    That is absolutely disgusting that you would make a joke out of the Jerry Sandusky situation.

    You just wanted the attention.

    Always two sides to every story.

    Calling BS on him not remembering his Penn St comments. Pretty foolish to think that any controversial things you’ve said wouldn’t come up by the organization you’re making allegations against.

    Damn, this isn’t even football, it’s drama.

    Let the two sides attack each other endlessly for the next 3 months. Maybe the Vikings will start the season 1-5 (just like last year) and the legend of Kluwe will live on in infamy.

    You know, I’m offended by just about everything Chris Kluwe has ever written or said. Where do I sign up to sue him?

    This guy is a clown looking for his last 15 min. of fame. Please go away!!!!

    I heard Ben Leber on the radio talking about the disrespectful stuff he would write about the coaches on the white board after meetings, much of it of a sexual nature. He should be thanking the Vikings for allowing him to be employed as long as he was.

  114. Aaron Rodgers has Tiny Hands says: Jul 19, 2014 1:08 AM

    So Kluwe is really concerned about “human rights,” but the only human rights I’ve heard him advocate for are the “right” of two people of the same sex to get married and his right to be employed as a punter in perpetuity. How about standing up for child rape victims? Not too concerned about their right not to be raped, are you?

    The vikings’ accusations against Kluwe are also an admission that such behavior was acceptable in the vikings locker room.

    “Gee, I don’t remember cutting a hole in my pants to expose my buttocks to make light of child abuse, but that sure sounds like something I would do!”

    What else did he do if he can’t even remember something like that?

    ———————————–

    When he said, “Gee, I don’t remember…”, he was mocking Priefer who said that he didn’t remember wanting to kill all the gays in the world, but said that if the long snapper remembers him saying it, that gee, maybe he did.

    You are not intelligent enough to grasp Kluwe’s sarcasm.

    If Littler Mendelson is involved, you know that the corporation they’re representing are EVIL INCARNATE.

    Littler Mendelson is an Corporate Employment lawfirm who protect big corporations from the huge might of – yes, you guessed it, the LITTLE GUY.

    They get a class action lawsuit thrown out which steps on disabled people’s rights and protects their fat-cat clients from having to treat their employees with dignity and fairness under the law.

    The lawfirm is SO messed up, they can’t even conform to the CANNED SPAM act and their marketing department has been blacklisted more than 10 times by SPAM protection agencies and ISPs for having sent out unsafe spam emails to their clients and unsuspecting prospects that want NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR GREEDY FIRM.

    Of course, this is merely my OWN opinion, which I’m free to express here. You’ll find out what despicable bastards they are if you ever have to deal with them yourselves.

    Let me get this straight… it’s horrific to make fun of a gay person, but it’s perfectly fine to joke about child rape?! Kluwe is the most vile kind of person out there.

  120. packsoldier says: Jul 19, 2014 2:56 AM

    I hate the Vikings, but it’s time they stood up and struck a blow against PC Stalinism. Appeasing the Left doesn’t work. It just encourages more assaults on liberty.

    “It didn’t stick in my mind, but, you know, I — it is definitely — something I would do.”

    Maestro… classic.. imitation is when the Poet gave us “Captain Munnerlyn” as a top 5 CB.

    If he feels this strongly about this – do something productive for the LGBT (whatever their acronym is) community by raising money or awareness or whatever their issue is now.

  124. favresthumbdrive says: Jul 19, 2014 8:11 AM

    What Kluwe did is 10 times worse than anything Priefer said. Making fun of child rape victims??? Are you kidding me? Go away Kluwe.

  125. natelan69 says: Jul 19, 2014 10:03 AM

    He was mocking the child rapist, not the child rape victims.

    You Republicans are disgusting, vile, rotten-minded people.

    Convenient that none of you care or acknowledge that Priefer wants to KILL all the gays in the world. That, or you completely agree with Priefer’s opinions, which is even more disgusting.

    Shame on all of you.

    Kluwe is absolutely destroying the Vikings and their bigoted employees.

    Do you think Viking fans realize that the country is laughing at them again?

    There is a world of difference between child sex abuse and sexual activity between consenting adults. It is not fair to equate making fun of a sexual predator and the institutions that protected him with making hateful statements about adults against whom discrimination is regularly accepted.

  129. justatrophy says: Jul 22, 2014 3:27 PM

    Kluwe can mock children that were victims of a heinous crime and it’s humor but if his coach makes a blanket statement he’s offended.

    Way to draw the line Chris.
