 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says he's been fined $5,250 by the NFL for wearing a message on his uniform promoting Ray Guy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Kluwe confirmed Wednesday the penalty he expected from the league for a first-time uniform violation. He wore a note bearing the words ``Vote Ray Guy'' on top of his jersey patch commemorating the Hall of Fame during Sunday's game against Chicago. Kluwe said his show of support for Guy's induction will probably be a one-time act.
He says he's happy he ``got people talking about'' the fact that no punters are in the Hall. Kluwe calls the voting process ``a sham of a system if you're not going to acknowledge every facet of the game.''
