The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:
In a Tuesday appearance on Fox Sports Live, Kluwe retreated from his original stance on Priefer. While not backing down from what he alleged, Kluwe said, “After thinking about it, after reflecting on it, I don’t think an appropriate punishment is if he never coaches again. I think it would be better if he got therapy, if he got counseling, and then a year or two from now, come back into the league as a role model, help out with LGBT groups, and show people that this is an important issue.” Those are two very different things, of course — Kluwe’s desire in the Deadspin post vs. what he said Tuesday — and we’re not entirely sure the rabbit can be stuffed back in the hat. That said, the larger issue in play remains whether Priefer said what Kluwe alleges. And that is still playing out.
