Chris Kluwe takes creative shots at Goodell

Back in December when the Metrodome roof collapsed and the NFL moved the Vikings’ Monday night home game to the University of Minnesota’s outdoor venue, Chris Kluwe took to Twitter and spoke out harshly about the unsafe frozen field conditions. He was asked by some faction of the powers that be to pipe down.

With the NFL players locked out, the Vikings punter is at it again. And, obviously, there’s no one to tell him to stop this time.

Kluwe took to Twitter to post his paraphrased version of Roger Goodell’s letter to players:

Kluwe board

Kluwe board 2

Was only used to be vocal analyzing and thus outraged while using the research you may developed. Analyze completely specifically what bothered correct very. The boulders!

How many Minnesota Vikings employees are bringing guns to school to sell? None you idiot because they aren't dumb. Plus that had nothing to do with anything about the article. And I also don't see you in the NFL so you probably can't punt worth anything so your jealous, Of a punter.  Your life must be amazing.

it's guys like him who are building fan support to help crush the owners beliefs that fans are behind them. Maybe shortsighted people see him as "just a punter" I see him as a front runner in the players' cause and a guy who is doing it with a little creativity, and humor rather than approaching it with such a negative feel to it. He realizes that this world is a world of compromise. No one gets everything you want, he's just asking for trust. If you ask me his point that the players aren't unreasonable men is 100% true and more players need to come out and support their cause to the fans to build more support. the more fans behind the players, the quicker we'll get back to football. when it is a group of 40 or so people, negotiating with a group of 500 plus people the side with the bigger numbers will likely be the side more willing to compromise because they are looking out for the majority of the people involved in this. What gets me is this sport is 100% based on the product on the field. If there were 500 horrible football players on the field the NFL would tank and we'd likely see the rise of leagues like the UFL, and AFL. However the players are the best in the world because of the fact that they are paid to be the best in the world and dedicate their lives to football. They sacrifice privacy, freewill, 75% of the year if not more, and their health to play a game when the owners sit back and watch as the people they have hired handle the business of entertaining millions upon millions of people across the world. If anything this should be vice versa the players should be asking for a bigger slice of revenue than the owners have but no they are being reasonable enough to ask for a fair split, and a continuation of a CBA both sides agreed upon 2 years ago in the midst of another lockout scare. The owners are being as shady about this as they can possibly be and wondering why a compromise hasn't been made. What gets me is they think this will be in the long term beneficial for them. I disagree. We have already started to see players start trickling into other leagues, whether its the AFL, or even the MLS players are looking elsewhere for money and likely looking to sports that offer more money. Soccer is the biggest sport in the world which pays more than the NFL, Basketball pays more, as does baseball. SO you tell me what are there benefits to taking less money when they could already be focusing on another sport making more money than they do with far less chance for injuries. If you ask me it's backwards that the most brutal mainstream sport on the planet save maybe MMA Fighting is one of the lowest paid leagues in America.
