Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says his campaign to get Ray Guy into the Pro Football Hall of Fame has cost him. In a tweet from Kluwe on Wednesday, he reported that the NFL fined him $5,250 for putting a Post-It note over the 50th anniversary Hall of Fame patch on his jersey to lobby for Guy during Sunday's game against Chicago. Kluwe said the fine was for altering his uniform. The patch read "Vote for Ray Guy." Kluwe believes Guy, a seven-time Pro Bowl punter for the Oakland Raiders, should be in the Hall of Fame, calling the system a sham. "My favorite part of the fine email from the NFL -- they end it with 'sincerely.' It's the little touches that let you know they care," Kluwe wrote on Twitter. "The good news is all the money goes to support former players through the NFL charity programs. Maybe they'll vote for Ray Guy. Fine amount was standard for a first time uniform violation -- $5250. I knew the potential consequences going in."
