Amazing! Is the next story going to be that Loeffler and Kluwe are friends even though Loeffler is good at his job and Kluwe is the worst punter ever?

Tip O'Neill and Reagan used to have a beer together after work. Both won and lost political fights, but were friends. A lot could be learned from that.

Time for Kluwe to go. And he can take his tweets with him. The Vikings need a punter...not a goof ball who can't wait for all of us to read his propoganda.

Maybe Kluwe should start worrying more about the 30 yard average he put up last game and less about his political beliefs. Do the job your being payed for Chris.

If Kluwe would spend more time on the practice field instead of wasting time Tweeting, maybe the Vikings would be a better team based on what I say against Tampa Bay!

Kluwe needs to start worrying about his punting skills than impressing the left wing extremists on Twitter.

Finally we get to hear the other side, well, that only took two months for you strib red soviet communists to figure out. Well la de da, not everyone cares about Chris Kluwe and his self righteous lefty views. Thank God for the long snapper, he's a breath of fresh air. Omg I was just waiting for the fans to say shut up Kluwe and be a better punter. Your ranked like 25th in the league, help us out in the actual games, please... Field position is very important for mr. Ponder to succeed. Right now Kluwe, you stink.

Hey squares, wake up and smell the Java. You read a story about opposites attracting, and all you can do is vent about Kluwe's performance in the Tampa Bay game. Wow, what a bunch of losers. As of this week, Chris Kluwe is 21st (T) all-time in punting average. wisstinks4, my bet is that the only time you have been 21st in anything was when there were only 20 contestants. Over and out.

Rick Spielman needs to Tweet Kluwe a very simple message. "You are making $1.3M, you are very average, Blair Walsh is 22 and won't make >700K in the life of his 4yr deal. Put up or shut up."

Kluwe would do better to focus on his punting than spending his time trying to become a media celebrity, political pundit, centerfold model and rock star. His lack of focus is starting to show.
