Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe told My Fox Twin Cities that the things the NFL chooses to support doesn’t make sense.
“Players who get caught smoking weed or DUI get 4 games, and you’re telling me the guy who made a comment like ‘let’s round up all the gays put them on an island nuke it till it glows’ — he’s only going to get a slap on the wrist?” Kluwe said in a phone interview.
Kluwe believes Vikings special teams coach Mike Priefer is sorry for getting caught.
“I think he’s probably sorry that all of this ever happened. I don’t think he’s truly sorry because in the report he kind of backs his way and says yeah, I kind of said it,” Kluwe said.
“The NFL is a league where you can get redemption for killing someone, for beating your wife in an elevator, for driving drunk, for a whole variety of things but when you speak out for civil rights, that’s the one thing you cannot get redeemed for,” Kluwe added.
