03:36 AM ET 12.10 | Earlier last month the debate came up as to whether or not punters and kickers deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he thinks they should be, and Kluwe obviously agrees with him. The debate was sparked by the absence of Ray Guy on this year's Hall of Fame semifinalist list, as Guy is generally regarded as one of the greatest kickers to ever live. Kluwe protested this discrimination by covering his Hall of Fame patch on his jersey with a post-it note that simply read: Vote Ray Guy. Given the boom in the worth of the kicker over the last twenty years in the NFL, we're bound to have one or two make it to Canton one day. A case can be made for Adam Vinatieri or someone like Morten Anderson, who actually made the cut on the list of semifinalists for this years Hall of Fame class. Nevertheless, Kluwe wants you to know it's not okay to be prejudice against punters.

Ray Guy was very very good. Hall of fame, yes. Yale Larry who I watched growing up was the best punter I ever saw. 70 yard punts were kind of standard for this guy.
