He wasn't a great punter and was taking up too much salary cap space. If he was making only what he was worth, he would still be on the team.

Actually, some people got all upset about some of his comments and you have to keep in mind that he was simply.... a punter in the NFL. With that in mind, I think he was absolutely correct for advocating for Ray Guy to be inducted. I didn't really pay much attention to his other opinions.

I've said this a half dozen times already but here it comes again, if kluwe were quiet as a church mouse every viking fan out there would be clamoring for his release, a mediocre, overpaid punter and one that can be readily replaced...

statistically he was in the bottom half of the league. He was inconsistent and had some really horrid games.....Reggie Bush - two punt returns for TD's as an example. Also, a lot of shanks a long the way. Too many touchbacks.

He fancies himself a man of empathy, but his rants are filled with vulgarity and an uncommon meaness. He is most proud of the letter he wrote to a 72 year-old member of the US House of Representatives who holds a PhD and is an ordained minister. He bitterly rants, offends, swears and demeans the man in a manner in which I wouldn't let my 10 year-old son speak to our dog. Nobody should ever address another human in such a manner simply because he disagrees with you. Kluwe is not a man of empathy; he is a jerk who overstayed his welcome.

That cartoon does a good job of illustrating the problem with Kluwe's punts -- short and a loss of field position. It does have relatively good hang time though. Sack's cartoon shows he doesn't know much about football either.

It's a great cartoon, so thanks to Mr. Sack. And thanks to Mr. Klewe for having the guts to speak out on the issue of equality; he knew he would not be popular with the majority of the professional sports world but he didn't care. Regardless of where he plays next, he will always have a fan club here in Minnesota.

I am a Vikings season ticket holder and I am really mad. It is obvious that he was dumped because of his views. Otherwise, they would have the new draftee have to compete against Kris for the job. The Vikings owner should sell the team and leave here. He is not a good citizen of our state. I am also mad at Spielman and Fraser. All three are little bigots. Furthermore, where is the large group that formed to stop the proposed 'defining marriage' amendment, now that Kris has been dealt with like this? They owe him something. In ending this, I wonder if the Vikings and the NFL would like demonstrations outside their stadium this fall?

I think he is moving to Baltimore.

@jimlefferts the addressee of Kluwe's letter in September was not a member of Congress but a member of the Maryland House of Delegates.
