Former NFL punter Chris Kluwe is currently suing the Minnesota Vikings because he claims their special team coach said homophobic slurs in the locker room. Kluwe himself is an advocate for gay rights and was cut by the team. He believes that he would still have a job in the NFL if it weren’t for his outspoken stance on gay rights.

Kluwe has also spoken out against Tony Dungy and his comments regarding Rams 7th round pick Micahel Sam.

Kluwe joined The Booger and Ryan Show to discuss Dungy’s comments and his lawsuit against the Vikings.

Kluwe said it’s disappointing to hear what Tony Dungy said. He said he’s a leader and Dungy has advocated for guys like Michael Vick to return to the league. Kluwe said hopefully Dungy reexamines himself after all of this.

Kluwe reiterated that he thinks he was cut by the Vikings because of his activism and he thinks the door to his career is closed in the NFL because he’s so outspoken.

Ray Rice was suspended two games on Thursday for assault charges involving his fiancee. Kluwe took a shot at Rice and the NFL:


“If you speak out and you dare to call out coaches and GM’s and stuff like that then the rest of the league is just going to be like ‘Nope we don’t want you.’ But apparently you can punch your fiancee in an elevator and just get a two game suspension so, good for the NFL.”

Kluwe also said that the NFL lessens punishments on players who are more talented.
