    Next time, try responding to what I did say instead of what you desperately wanted me to say. This is 3 times now that you've done this.
    I responded to exactly what you said in your OP, that it's too bad he was released for "speaking his mind". There are about a thousand other reason he could have been released, but nawwwww, it has to be this.

    Its not a question of what he did then but now.

    I definitely left it open to other reasons. But nawwww, it must be that I'm a libbo hypocrite. Can't be what I said. You're a one trick pony, and not even a good one.

    Well, he's not doing anything now. He didn't punt for anyone this year. So it's a question of reading a crystal ball. I'm not saying they read it wrong, but it is interesting how the most vocal gay rights advocate in the league is unemployed....

    Kluwe wasn't tossed for his politics he was tossed because he's not one of the top 33 punters available to 32 NFL teams - period. He competed in Oakland for the job and lost - handily.

    "He was released for speaking his mind" leaves it open? You know what "for" means, right?

    Again, not what I said. I said it would be too bad if that was why.

    Big difference. I thought I pretty well left it open for other reasons, but your spin on what you want me to say won't let you see that.

    Next we'll hear Jim Brown say that he's not still a running back in the league because of the "white plantation slaveowners".

    Chris Kluwe writes about his advocacy for SSM, how he believes it led to him losing his job as Vikings Punter, and how it may keep him from ever playing in the NFL again.

    Question:

    Do you feel the same way about Chris Kluwe as about Phil Robertson? If not, why not? Is Chris Kluwe an "American Hero" as Phil Robertson has been referred to?

    My opinion - The Vikings had every right to release him for whatever reason. It is too bad that this would happen for him speaking his mind, especially after the team owner told him to "keep it up."
    What he thinks he knows and what the team really thought are quite different.

    His letter sounds like sour grapes, and now he is pulling the discrimination card with nothing but speculation.

    Until he can give me the winning Powerball numbers, he is no soothsayer.

    If I'm not wrong, that is kind of what he thought. He probably could have played a couple years more, but didn't for his own reasons.
