    How about very disappointing? Of course, the piece is not about a man, a very disappointing man, who thinks homosexuals should be exterminated, the piece is about why Kluwe was fired. From two jobs. His activism is part of the picture, but he neglects these matters. But, let's not allow that to get in the way of disappointment.

    I like Kluwe, but how dare I interrupt my preferred narrative with useful context?

      the piece seems more about exposing the outrageous and vile - not just "very disappointing" - beliefs of the coach so that he will not be put in a position of leadership in the future.

      Just another faggity fag socialist fuckstick homosinner!

      "Whether it's my age, my minimum veteran salary, my habit of speaking my mind, or (most likely) a combination of all three, my time as a football player is done," he writes.

      Here's my take on it - the revolution will not be blogged, it has to be slogged. - Deoliver47

        So there you have it. It's my belief, based on everything that happened over the course of 2012, that I was fired by Mike Priefer, a bigot who didn't agree with the cause I was working for, and two cowards, Leslie Frazier and Rick Spielman, both of whom knew I was a good punter and would remain a good punter for the foreseeable future, as my numbers over my eight-year career had shown, but who lacked the fortitude to disagree with Mike Priefer on a touchy subject matter.

      talking about killing your parents or children like that you might be more than disappointed. Why should members of the LGBTI community be less important?

      That passed by; this can, too. - Deor
