    A pretty powerful read. Also a cautionary tale of "freedom of expression".

    This is the other side of the Duck Dynasty story, where tolerance can and will be taken to task by employers as readily as intolerance.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. At the same time, the guy was not a great punter. He consistently ranked in the late teens/32 in terms of averages. He wasn't bad by any means, but he wasn't great. He lost out in OAK to a guy who lead the NFL in average.

    I think this article will do more to hurt his playing chances than his previous speaking out moments would have.

    Reading that, I couldn't help but feel that most teams would have a problem if the punter became a distraction, for any reason.

    Priefer sounds like a right bell end, though.

    I don't see what's wrong with the article.

    Chris Kluwe is an asshat who likes to paint his arguments with colorful words like "**** nugget" and "dildo licker" he's an attention whore of the worst kind. He probably thinks he got the LGBT movement off the ground by himself.

    Tolerance is not a virtue in and of itself. Tolerating evil is not a virtue so be careful of what you tolerate. The problem is that there are different opinions of what is evil. But if the differences are not about good and evil, but simply matters of personal preference, then tolerance of those differences is a virtue.

    Homosexuality can rarely be discussed without getting the two concepts confused. No matter which side of the issue you may be on, you can descend into hate which is without a doubt evil.
