Vikings Punter fired because of political views?

I'm so sick of this attitude in this country towards free speech. Yes we have free speech, and yes you can be fired if your company doesn't like what you say, but I don't think that a person's political views has anything to do with how well you kick a ball or fill out your TPS report.

He got traded to the Raiders, then got terminated from the Raiders during the pre-season. So he wasn't an awesome punter. As a Vikings fan, I do have to confess you have to really suck to get fired from the Vikings, though.

It seems to me that he was one of the best punters the Vikings had in history.

Despite the fact that I hate all NFC North teams except the Bears, I think the problem with the Vikings is the management. They have good players, some of the best in the league and they still lose. There is no excuse for them to be so terrible. I know, injuries and all. But injuries are common. It honestly confuses me why they do some of the things they did this year. Like Josh Freeman. Why sign someone for one year for that much money? Josh Freeman was much better in 2012, but it's hard to tell because he only played part of one game.

I'm a Vikings fan too and yes I agree management is a huge problem but coaching is the bigger problem. Leslie Frazier should have been fired by week 8. They were supposed to be contending in the NFC North and ended up last. And that falls on management. Management can't keep decent coaches as they end up leaving and winning Super Bowls somewhere else-Dungy, Billick, Tomlin. I would have loved to have gotten Bill O'Brien as he can light a fire under your ass unlike Frazier who just stands there and chews gum. I suppose we'll end up with a Cam Cameron or Chan Gailey.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
