Priefer: I love everybody

Ex-Vikings punter: Coach made anti-gay remarks

In an article posted Thursday on the website Deadspin, Kluwe wrote that coach Mike Priefer made several anti-gay comments in objection to Kluwe’s outspoken support of a gay marriage amendment in Minnesota.

Hours later, Priefer issued a statement disputing Kluwe’s portrayal of the events. ‘‘I want to be clear that I do not tolerate discrimination of any type and am respectful of all individuals,’’ Priefer said. ‘‘I personally have gay family members who I love and support just as I do any family member.’‘

The Vikings said in a statement that they take the allegations ‘‘very seriously and will thoroughly review this matter.’‘

If a "thorough review" includes a chat with Kluwe's teammates who were supposedly within earshot of Priefer's alleged rants, then this story should sort itself out rather quickly.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
