Chris Kluwe on dispute with Vikings: 'It's about to get real'

An already ugly situation between former punter Chris Kluwe and the Minnesota Vikings appears to be getting worse after Kluwe sent out the following tweets on Friday.

Before we breakdown the tweets, let's first outline some background on the situation. Kluwe, a notorious advocate for human rights, has promised to smack the Vikings with a lawsuit if the team doesn't disclose the details of its investigation into Kluwe's claims of homophobic comments and retaliatory discharge. Kluwe was released in May 2013 and he claims it was because of his strong public stance in favor of gay rights.

And now for the aforementioned tweets...

Kluwe also tweeted that media shouldn't bother calling him because he is attending something called Quakecon this week. However, the 32-year-old did warn that next week is "open season," so there is that.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the two sides were set to meet Thursday in a last-ditch effort to resolve the situation peacefully. But those attempts seemed to have been fruitless at this point.
