Honestly, if you're a Vikings fan, how can you not love this guy?
Word is coming out that four of the ten named plaintiffs in the Brady vs. NFL case. . .Saints' quarterback Drew Brees, Patriots' offensive lineman Logan Mankins, Chargers' wide receiver Vincent Jackson, and Colts' quarterback Peyton Manning. . .are attempting to cut their own deal with the league and potentially holding up the entire lockout negotiation process for the other 1,900 or so players in the NFL.
Well, at least one person has spoken out about it.
Sigh, and once again greed is the operative byword. Congrats Brees, Manning, Mankins, and Jackson for being 'that guy'. #douchebags
If it's wrong for me to want to purchase a jersey with a punter's name on it, I have no desire to be right.
The thing is that he's exactly right. . .if these four players are hindering progress by attempting to cut their own deals, they really ought to consider just shutting the hell up and getting the hell out of the way. Training camp is supposed to start next week, and the big free-for-all for free agents is supposed to kick off on Monday (for signing your own free agents) and Thursday (for all of the free agency to begin), pending an agreement.
Kluwe is exactly right on this. I'm glad he's on our side.
