Vikings Punter Slams Peyton Manning, Drew Brees On Twitter

One thing that could hold up the resolution of the antitrust lawsuit against the NFL are the individual demands of Logan Mankins, Vicent Jackson, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees, one player has decided to let his opinion known.

Vikings punter Chris Kluwe posted the following on his Twitter page: “Sigh, and once again greed is the operative byword. Congrats Brees, Manning, Mankins, and Jackson for being ‘that guy’. #douchebags”

There is precedent for this. Part of the Reggie White antitrust lawsuit vs. the NFL in 1993 that instituted free agency, the plaintiffs were granted a lifetime exemption from the franchise tag.

An interesting way for Kluwe to get his point across, and it will be even more interesting to see how and if any of those that he slammed responds.

    Greed and self-importance. These whiny little brats make me sick. I work with the scum of the earth at a job I hate to barely pay my bills each month, and they can’t get enough given to them for playing a game. I had to save my pennies to get my kid a cheap little plastic swimming pool during this heat wave, and Carson Palmer acts like his dumb a$$ would walk away from 11.5 millions a year.
    Great leave and never come back. douchebags!!
