    Yeah, it sounds like he wants to go nuclear on them at this point. I really hope he doesn't start throwing other players and crap under the bus, i.e "One time Adrian Peterson said he doesn't like X because of their constant Y"

    If he wants to complain some more about Pfiefer etc, fine, just leave the players out of it for the love of rocketpig.

    First off, Kluwe's buddy and star witness (the long snapper) said it was intended as a joke to get their attention and both of them (Kluwe too) laughed at it. It's a dumb joke...but so is any joke about child rape.

    And let's not brush over that - actual children were raped, traumatized, and had their lives turned upside down by Sandusky and that is something you think is ok to joke about? But a stupid, hateful hypothetical means we should grab our torches and pitchforks? I can't even imagine such messed up priorities.

    What Preifer said were ugly, meaningless words about something that has never happened and will never happen. What Kluwe joked about was actual violence inflicted on other human beings. Since when do freaking words matter as much as violent acts?

    No offense Dave, but to call that nothing more than "Un-PC" is flabbergasting. And we haven't even talked about using potential underage sexual misconduct as flame bait.

    Kluwe no longer can keep priorities straight. (He said much the same in spousal abuse and drunk driving being equal to what Preifer said) He's basically the troll many of us worried he might be.

    If the franchise ceased to exist tomorrow, the rest of my life would be much more happy.

    Only if Kluwe is signed to a one day contract for the event.
