Even more from the Moss trough

Because we can’t help ourselves, here are a couple more takes on Randy Moss before he’s officially placed on the waiver wire today (we assume as much, anyway).

No. 1: Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver has a stunning story about why some of the Vikings players are, in fact, happy to see Moss go. It’s because, according to Silver, Moss has exhibited obnoxious behavior recently that has made his teammates uncomfortable.

Take this passage for instance:

As is the team’s custom on Fridays, a local food establishment was invited to the training facility to serve a catered, post-practice meal in the locker room. In this case, a St. Paul restaurant that is a favorite of former Vikings center Matt Birk. As the proprietors helped serve chicken, ribs, pasta and other dishes to Vikings players, Moss paced up and down the serving line and loudly expressed his displeasure with the offerings.

According to one player who witnessed the scene, Moss yelled, “What the [expletive]? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn’t feed this to my dog!”

Said the witness: “It was brutal. The truth is, he deserved to be cut after that. It was such an uncomfortable moment. You know that feeling where you just can tell someone feels so small? That’s what it was like being there.

“This wasn’t a chain – it was a mom-and-pop restaurant, and you could tell it was their best stuff. They had a special carving station set up, and there were players and other support staff lining up to eat it. And [Moss] is at his locker saying, ‘You know, I used to have to eat that crap – but now I’ve got money.’ You just felt so sad for them. I had never seen anyone treated like that.

“And by the way, the food was actually really good.”


Read the rest of Silver’s story. It gives some interesting insight. It doesn’t make coach Brad Childress seem all that more sympathetic (especially if you read the story I wrote late last night), but it might give Moss apologists something to think about.

No. 2: Do you remember Monday night when Moss’ agent, Joel Segal, released this statement to the Minneapolis Star Tribune?

It read, “Randy is very sad to find out about being waived by the Vikings this morning. He has and always will remain fond of the fans in Minnesota. We will let the process of the waiver wire take its course and we will move on from there."

Apparently, that was a hoax. So writes USA Today, which quotes the NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi (who broke the Moss story in the first place).

Just when you think this story couldn’t get any crazier …

As stupid as Moss might look today, he can't possibly look worse than Childress, who is failing on multiple levels with multiple whiner divas.

Sick Action.

Watch the Pats resign Randy Moss. Watch it happen, learn about it. Thanks for the 3rd round draft choice Small Soda. (a.k.a. Mini Soda)
