Here's an excerpt:
Some will ask if the NFL has a problem with institutionalized homophobia. I don't think it does. I think there are homophobic people in the NFL, in all positions, but that's true for society as well, and those people eventually get replaced. All we can do is try to expose their behavior when we see it and call them to account for their actions.
In the piece, Kluwe alleges Priefer treated him poorly and speculates it's because of his work with Minnesotans for Marriage Equality.

The timing is not an accident, Kluwe wrote. He said he still has friends on the Vikings and didn't want to make it a distraction this season. He said he hopes the issue dies down by the time next season starts and that he hopes to "make sure that Mike Priefer never holds a coaching position again in the NFL, and ideally never coaches at any level."
Kluwe was cut from the Raiders earlier this year.
