I personally think though that they start crossing the line when they use game day to air their personal views on national TV.

I agree. Kluwe can say what he wants, as long as it is not offensive, but using the uniform on game day is crossing the line. As I said during the game chat, he would get fined and rightly so.

That's a very unusual amount for a fine. It's like $5k wasn't quite enough, but that extra 250 made all the difference. It tells me someone over at the league office spent too much time thinking about it.
Maybe, but some fines are listed or limited in the CBA, so this may be a set fine amount.
