Looks like Kluwe gave up before the game even started. A general house cleaning is in order.

"Former Vikings greats have little sympathy for current players' cold-weather concerns" proving that the adverse effects of multiple cold turf concussions last long after their playing days are over. Let's get rid of those wussy seatbelts, airbags and child car seats while we're at it 'cause they weren't being used back then either.

I always thought punters were wimps. Now, Kluwe proves my point. Toughen up buddy, you guys are getting millions of dollars. There are people who risk their lives everyday for a lot less money.
Interestingly enough, punters and kickers are the few football players who retire without permanent physical disabilities. If being able to walk upstairs and play with your children/grandchildren is being a "wuss" then the rest of you need to up your "tough guy" game at your respect jobs--especially you "give me my unearned bonus" crybabies.

Oh, was that horrible last night. Take Matt Flynn over Joe webb any day. He's not your answer. Painful to watch last night. Embarrassing. Cellar dwellers here we come

They should put Kluwe in on kickoff coverage and find out what he's made of.
We discovered what that nancy boy is made of before kickoff. He should be playing cribbage with nursing home residents instead of football. Christine Kluwe is a transgender!

@ FarmBoy
You're about as convincing a farm boy as I would be a bronc rider. You're "clearing a path," now? a week after the big snow? What have you been doing since?
And you know what? Forty ain't bad, for not having to sit in a cubicle all day and wait for The Man to decide he can hire your work out in Manila for chump change, so good-bye. I'm sure your "expenses" include all the groceries.
You're right, paint. I should've known where the guy would get stuck and plowed the snow to that spot beforehand. Sorry about your life in a cubicle.

I wonder if Hester had anything to say to Kluwe about the "unplayable" field conditions.

While I find the whinning of the current players amusing your rant about Kluwe is foolish. Look at the stats and you will see he is one of the best punters in the game. The whole team is whinning he just appears to be more tech savy so he is tweeting. I relished the old days watching them play in the snow and crushing the Rams in December. But alas it is 2010 and those days are gone. We do not have a quarterback but we do have a punter let not lose what we have.
Have you looked at his stats? Are you just telling me to do so because you believe he is one of the best punters in the game? Punters are very replaceable, please look around the league to see that punters are constantly changing! I work outside 5 days a week in any weather condition, I have yet to whine because I face the risk of multiple injuries while welding, cutting, etc. I chose my profession as did little Krissy Kluwe fortunately for him he is making a salary that is unimaginable to many to kick a ball a few times a game. Enjoy your day!
