Chris Kluwe Vs. The Vikings Just Got Really Ugly

Shit went down tonight in the matter of Chris Kluwe vs. the Vikings. Earlier this evening, word came down that Minnesota special teams coach Mike "nuke all the gays" Priefer would be suspended three games for making homophobic remarks. This more or less closed the book on the team's investigation into Kluwe's allegations, but if tonight was any indication, it only began the far nastier dishware-throwing phase of the proceedings. Among other things, it's pretty clear now that the former punter is going to sue.

Not long after Priefer's supension was announced, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, citing a league source, tweeted that Kluwe had made jokes about Jerry Sandusky while he was on the team.

Though Kluwe had stopped tweeting earlier in the day, he came back on to respond to these allegations:
