    What happened to his right to free speech? That is if he actually said it.

    This was the comment: “We should round up all the gays, send them to an island, and then nuke it until it glows.”

    Yes, he has the right to say it. An employer also has the right to discipline his employees.

    Now if he was arrested for what he said, there would be a first amendment concern.

    Correction it should read supposed comment. Unless I missed something this is a he said he said situation without any witnesses.
    Looks more to me like Priefer is being the good soldier and taking one for the team. Or else he is being thrown under the bus in an attempt to satisfy the NFL's anti discrimination policy ... From what I've read Kluwe threatened to sue the Vikings unless Priefer was suspended for 4 games. But since the suspension is only for 3 games he intends to proceed with the lawsuit.

    What team is he playing for this year? Surely since his performance isn't the problem then he must have been signed by some other NFL team.

    Unless he was hollering something equivalent to "fire" in a crowded theater. There is a line that you can't cross or you do deserve to be arrested.

    I wonder how many of the pencil necks that run the NFL have ever spent real time in a locker room?

    The MSM and the Gays have been waiting for an opportunity to get this gay issue back on the front page news. They finally found an opportunity. Now they are attacking Tony Dungy also. They'll spin and twist people's words in every direction possible to get this issue back on the front page.

    Someone destroy his knees......and be done with it. Of course, then that player will be charged with a "homophobe hate crime".

    Both country and NFL have become pretty pathetic. And it's because of political correctness. Spinelessness on full display.
