Let's just say it got real in the Twin Cities with the Chris Kluwe-Mike Priefer allegations and investigations.
The Minnesota Vikings held their own investigation and have now suspended special teams coach Mike Priefer for three games- two if he successfully completes sensitivity training. Priefer, apparently, has been found out for lying about his involvement in the case from the beginning. He initially denied saying what he did to Vikings players, but has now come out admitting he said disparaging comments toward gays.
But the Vikings only say that Priefer said that kind of comment on one occasion.
Here's a quick look at the Vikes investigation
Kluwe is still planning to sue the Vikings on four separate charges next week- religious and sexual orientation discrimination, defamation and intentional interference with contractual negotiations.
He took to Twitter to drop a series of pipe bombs last night when the Vikes released their report. The comments included (and are mandatory reading, by the way):
Oooh, shall we talk about the time two very well known Vikings players were caught in a compromising situation with an underage girl?
Don't worry folks, you'll know when I'm on tilt. The Vikings clearly think turning this dirty will scare me off. Says all you need to know.
Also interesting how so many are willing to follow the Vikings' false lead with the leak about me, and not the admission of Priefer's guilt.
Interesting stat of the night. In a 29 page report, 3 pages deal with the actual subject.
