So it says here.
Vikings' patience with Chris Kluwe appears to be wearing thin | 1500 ESPN Twin Cities ? Minnesota Sports News & Opinion (Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Gophers) | Sportswire: Minnesota Vikings

"Those distractions are getting old for me to be quite honest with you." says one coach.

This from a team who hasn't gone more than a couple of weeks between player arrests in the last 10 years.

So to recap: you can drive drunk (despite the presence of the free ride any time program), beat up your girlfriend, get into nightclub scuffles, run over meter maids, and have a prostitute party, and that's all fine and dandy.

But when the punter speaks his mind on a couple of issues, it becomes a distraction.

However bad the Twins are, they will never be as ridiculous as the Vikings.

It's an unwritten NFL rule that mediocre punters should be seen and not heard.

Branding 101: Defiling the NFL brand name trumps any DWI arrest, manslaughter or murder/suicide incident.

Kluwe is hardly the Vikings' problem, and if the team is losing patience with him over his Ray Guy antics and occasional deadspin article, this team has much bigger problems.
