Tuesday: Phil Mickelson, Jason Day in NYC ManCave

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe joined the show to talk about the recent controversy about NFL teams asking about players’ sexuality at the Scouting Combine.

Kluwe said that teams shouldn’t be able to ask that. “Under labor laws you’re not allowed to ask that question in most states,” Kluwe said.

Kluwe, however, said he wasn’t surprised they asked: “Teams have this almost pathological need to know as much as possible about players because they’re making relatively large investments in these players.”
Kluwe said that it’s unfair though, because players are in the unique position of needing a job.

Kluwe said that he believes he probably has had gay teammates just because of national statistics.

Kluwe said that the NFL should look into this and find out if teams did ask players about their sexuality. “They should make it clear that teams should not ask [this],” Kluwe said.
