Chris Kluwe Goes Off On Vikings, Spielman To Deadspin

Chris Kluwe

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe went ballistic on Leslie Frazier, special teams coach Mike Priefer and GM Rick Spielman in a Deadspin article.

Kluwe writes about how he was treated after expressing his policital view in 2012.

Kluwe writes, “So there you have it. It’s my belief, based on everything that happened over the course of 2012, that I was fired by Mike Priefer, a bigot who didn’t agree with the cause I was working for, and two cowards, Leslie Frazier and Rick Spielman, both of whom knew I was a good punter and would remain a good punter for the foreseeable future, as my numbers over my eight-year career had shown, but who lacked the fortitude to disagree with Mike Priefer on a touchy subject matter. (Frazier was fired on Monday, at the conclusion of a 5-10-1 season.) One of the main coaching points I’ve heard throughout my entire life is, “How you respond to difficult situations defines your character,” and I think it’s a good saying. I also think it applies to more than just the players.”

“If there’s one thing I hope to achieve from sharing this story, it’s to make sure that Mike Priefer never holds a coaching position again in the NFL, and ideally never coaches at any level. … It’s inexcusable that someone would use his status as a teacher and a role model to proselytize on behalf of his own doctrine of intolerance, and I hope he never gets another opportunity to pass his example along to anyone else. I also hope that Leslie Frazier and Rick Spielman take a good look in the mirror and ask themselves if they are the people they truly profess themselves to be.”

    If Kluwe was such A good punter why didn’t he get the Oakland job, if he would of shut his mouth he could of had $1.5 million the price he paid for opening his big mouth, when your boss tells you to shut up & you don’t,don’t be surprised if you don’t have a JOB what a dumb ass
