  • Former Vikings Punter Kluwe rips Fraziers staff.

    http://deadspin.com/i-was-an-nfl-pla...ium=socialflow


    Went off on former Broncos ST coach Preifer as well.

    Throughout the months of September, October, and November, Minnesota Vikings special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer would use homophobic language in my presence. He had not done so during minicamps or fall camp that year, nor had he done so during the 2011 season. He would ask me if I had written any letters defending "the gays" recently and denounce as disgusting the idea that two men would kiss, and he would constantly belittle or demean any idea of acceptance or tolerance. I tried to laugh these off while also responding with the notion that perhaps they were human beings who deserved to be treated as human beings. Mike Priefer also said on multiple occasions that I would wind up burning in hell with the gays, and that the only truth was Jesus Christ and the Bible. He said all this in a semi-joking tone, and I responded in kind, as I felt a yelling match with my coach over human rights would greatly diminish my chances of remaining employed. I felt uncomfortable each time Mike Priefer said these things.

      Kluwe is and has always been an attention whore/drama queen.

                    Would you expect anything less than rampant homophobia from the Orange Mane? I fully expected the reactions so far.

                      A distraction off the field (no matter whether you support or oppose his positions and his right to espouse them) and average on the field don't add up to job security.

                          Oh, that part i can agree with you on, but i have no problem on him speaking out for the cause.

                            Mike Priefer should never work again. He's a terrible STs coach.
