Former punter Chris Kluwe and his attorney, Clayton Halunen, announced Tuesday that Kluwe will sue the Minnesota Vikings over his release last year in hopes of getting the club to unveil the findings of an internal investigation into the allegations of anti-gay conduct by a coach. “It’s transparently obvious to me that the Vikings are covering up the truth,” said Halunen, per KFAN.com. “We have no choice but to litigate at this point. Kluwe willingly cooperated with the Vikings’ investigation – all he ever wanted was for the truth to come out.” “It’s outrageous to me that the Vikings would choose to hide the facts of the investigation from me and from their fans,” Kluwe said. “Minnesota Vikings fans are the real losers in this sad affair,” he said. “The fans deserve to know that what I said about Priefer and the way the Vikings let me go was the truth. I was persecuted and then fired for standing up for what I believe in, all because some small-minded, bigoted people think that homophobia is

  • Chris Kluwe has never been shy to state HIS opinions, and the chips fall where they may. The majority of fans and probably the team from the owners to the ball boy disagreed with him on most comments he made...but Boo Hoo. He was the punter, doing a good job. Now somebody else has an opinion, and it is SUE SUE SUE. Typical gay behavior: They can dish it out, but they can't take it. Wish we still had the constitutional right of freedom of speech.
