I agree with Kluwe's stance on the issue. I supported his right to take a public stance on the issue. With that said, let's not kid ourselves. Kluwe's motivation in writing this article was to ruin Preifer's career. He stated as much in his op-ed:
"If there's one thing I hope to achieve from sharing this story, it's to make sure that Mike Priefer never holds a coaching position again in the NFL, and ideally never coaches at any level."
So while I support Kluwe's position and believe Preifer did these things to some degree (I have no doubt Kluwe embellished it a little), there was nothing altruistic about his motives. It was revenge pure and simple. He heard Preifer was a candidate for the head coaching job and wanted to scuttle his chances.
Partly. But I honestly think Kluwe has bigger goals than that.
55% of Republicans think the Earth is 5,000 years old. All kinds of people believe all kinds of crazy things. You just gotta move on, man.
