Wanna make $14 the hard way?
They had Tony Dungy on ESPiN last night, talking about Moss' gesture. He laughed and said that what a lot of people don't know is that Green Bay fans have this tradition of waiting outside the visitors' gate after they win and mooning the other teams' bus as it pulls away. I'm sure Moss has seem that a time or two. For some reason, that makes it all sort of funny to me.

Well, if that's true, then it is funny.

Moss is still a punk-ass, though.

Never Forget 31-0
just because a few drunk cheese heads act like little kids, that give Moss the right to do it on national tv?

The guy is worthless and has no class, all he did was take away from what his team accomplished, no one is talking about the big win, just his childish behavior.

One reason to root for Moss....Antoine Winfield.

From peter king:

Defensive Player of the Week

Minnesota CB Antoine Winfield, whose 11 tackles helped the Vikings hold the Packers to 306 total yards, and whose interception and pass defense helped stymie Brett Favre in the 31-17 Vikes win. What a Godsend signing him as a free agent last winter.

From ESPN:
Comments from one current pro personnel director, and a pro scout, on the weekend's wild card games:

• "That Minnesota defense is still pretty awful, but it's obvious what a difference having (cornerback Antoine) Winfield back on the field makes in the secondary, huh? Winfield hits a lot bigger than his size and he's a surer tackler than anyone else they have back there. He had about a dozen tackles (11 actually), an interception, a pass defensed. (He) did it all. He's a hell of a player and they really missed him when he was out."

In light of Dungy's remarks, I think Moss' actions take on a different signifigance. I'd prefer if he'd (and everyone else who ever scores a TD) simply act like scoring is something he expected to do, hand the ball to the ref, and act like scoring TD's is something he's done hundreds of times before, rather than danicing stupid assed dances, like this is the first and last time he'll ever get to pay dirt, and all that other garbage. But, if Pack fans moon the losing team, then I think Randy's act was merely him saying "Yeah? Take that."

Not to mention the fact that earlier in the game, when Minn was up 17 - 0 Randy was on the sideline hootin and hollerin something to the crowd - it appeared like he was yippin in response to jeers he was getting. He pointed to the scoreboard. After a few seconds of this he said (at least it looked like he said - I didn't actually hear it) "Score board, motherfucker."

Nothing wrong with Randy being in to the game. Hell, it's not like he went in to the stands and beat the shit out of whoever was eggin him on.

Calmer than you are.
I thought the "mooning" was funny. I don't really have a problem with celebrating touchdowns though. I get to celebrate everytime my team scores a touchdown. Why do the players have to act "professional" when they're the ones actually scoring the touchdowns? Just so long as they don't go all Baseketball on us. I don't see any problem with celebrating.

Stuck somewhere between Wildcats and Cardinals
Found this article from Michael Wilbon of the Washington Post. I must say I agree with him 100%. I would've sent the link, but you need to register at the Post, soooo....

Moss, NFL Show An Equally Bad Side

<!--plsfield:stop--><!--plsfield:byline-->By Michael Wilbon<O:p</O:p

<!--plsfield:disp_date-->Tuesday, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:date Month="1" Day="11" Year="2005">January 11, 2005</st1:date>; Page D01<O:p</O:p

<NITF><!--plsfield:description-->I don't need to see Randy Moss pantomiming a mooning. I don't need to see Moss rubbing his butt on the goal post to stick it to the <st1:City>Green Bay</st1:City> fans after a touchdown. It's moronic.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>But it wasn't the worst thing in the world, which is what some folks including the ones at NFL headquarters want you to believe. League officials will be coming at Randy Moss with the big stick; perhaps they will have fined him by the time your morning newspaper hits the driveway. And a fine is probably in order. Don't expect to read in this space any defense of Moss. I wouldn't want him on my team. His self-absorption is always going to undermine his prodigious talent, and ultimately that hurts his team's chance to win.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<!--START CONTENT COLUMN--><!--<TABLE ALIGN="right" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0" BORDER="0"> <TR> <TD WIDTH="17"><SPACER TYPE="block" WIDTH="17" HEIGHT="1"></TD> <TD ALIGN="center">--><!--td width=139 valign="top"-->Having said that, I'm certainly not outraged at Moss's mock mooning in <st1:City>Green Bay</st1:City>. What he did seven days earlier at FedEx Field was worse. Yes, walking off the field while your teammates line up to try to pull off a miracle onside kick was far more disgraceful because Moss turned his back on his team and dishonored the game. At least the mock mooning came after he scored a touchdown.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>But this righteous outpouring is sickening in its hypocrisy. The NFL would have you believe it's running something as pure as a Girl Scout bake sale on Sunday afternoons, when in fact the NFL has clothing-challenged cheerleaders giving you an eye-full of rump every second of every game.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>Teenage boys (and, okay, grown men) tune in hoping to get the equivalent of a mooning. A few hours before Moss's mock mooning on Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts' cheerleaders trotted out wearing chaps, which are meant to emphasize rear ends that are covered in a lot less than uniform pants.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>If the NFC had sanctioned Moss's act and slapped a logo on it or marketed it, things would have been fine. But it didn't, so Moss's behavior will draw a fine and he'll be the sports world's Public Enemy No. 1 at least until Saturday, when the playoffs resume. Tell me, exactly, how a man completely clothed and pantomiming a mooning is more offensive than erectile dysfunction ads coming into your living room about 10 times a game during NFL telecasts?</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>A very smart man I know who deals with sports sponsorships for a living told me after the NFL lost its mind over the Terrell Owens/"Desperate Housewives" "Monday Night Football" opening, "It was a lot easier to explain to my 7-year-old daughter why [Nicollette Sheridan] dropped her towel and jumped into T.O.'s arms than it was to try to explain what an erection is during a football game -- not to mention why it lasts four hours."</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>The NFL, judging from the frequency and prominence of these ads, is in the erectile business. This is so palatable? The post-church hour should be spent watching NFL games where between touchdowns some hottie is talking about what her man can do with a little, uh, assistance?</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>One of the best play-by-play men to ever sit behind a microphone, Joe Buck of Fox, called Moss's behavior "disgusting," and my dear friend James Brown took the verbal equivalent of an electrical cord to Moss's behind. And I know a lot of people side with Buck and J.B.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>But for the second time this season the NFL (and its network broadcast partners) just skate on the issue of what's appropriate and what isn't during a football game. It's okay to throw "The Twins" up in your grille at the end of every single game or the end of some ESPN highlight package, but Randy Moss is the devil because he showed his cloth-covered hiney to some fans in one end zone?</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>By the way, most folks outside the NFC Central, as it used to be called, probably don't know there's a little tradition of Packers fans actually mooning opposing players on the bus ride away from Lambeau after a Packers victory. Tony Dungy, who spent all those years with <st1:PlaceName>Tampa</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType>Bay</st1:PlaceType> when the Bucs were in that division, recalled seven such mass moonings in <st1:City>Green Bay</st1:City>. Not to justify it, but now you know the gesture, foul or not, at least has some context.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>I'm supposed to react seriously to the Fox network trying to claim the high ground? The network that is bringing you "Who's Your Daddy," where a woman has to pick out her birth father, with a $100,000 prize, has the moral high ground? The same network that brings you "The Littlest Groom" about a midget -- I'm sorry, a little person -- attempting to find love in a reality show? ESPN can promote "Tilt" with clips of a semi-clothed woman straddling some dude -- but these networks were too squeamish Sunday night to even show a replay of Moss's mock-mooning?</NITF><O:p</O:p


<NITF>Moss's misbehaving Sunday didn't merit a mention in my column on the Packers-Vikings game because it was too dumb and too trivial to mention.</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>I was glad to hear Michael Irvin, the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and current ESPN analyst, say on the air yesterday that it was a bigger deal a week ago when Moss walked off the field before the game was over. And Irvin added, "The first thing I thought about when I saw it was, 'Why would he do that?' " Irvin drew a necessary distinction between Moss's behavior and T.O.'s look-at-me end zone celebrations when he said: "T.O. is having fun. What Randy did had bad intentions. . . . He's wrong, just flat-out wrong."</NITF><O:p</O:p

<NITF>But this "oh-my-gosh-cover-the-children's-eyes" level of outrage is wearing me out, especially when it comes from a sports league. Where would Enzyte, Cialis, Viagra and Levitra (the Official Erectile Aid of the NFL) be without sports leagues? On NFL.com there is a "Levitra Play of the Year" which I presume has something to do with football -- but maybe not. The NFL's position seems to be Randy Moss brought shame to himself and the league with his antics Sunday. Perhaps Moss and the hypocritical league deserve each other.</NITF>

(For a change) a "he did something good" article on Randy Moss:

Moss Helps Endow Marshall Football Scholarship

Former Herd star and current NFL great gives back to alma mater

April 18, 2006

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Randy Moss is helping to start a scholarship fund at his alma mater in the name of Marshall's 1996 Division I-AA national championship football team.
"This is what programs are about," said Marshall coach Mark Snyder. "When guys go out and start giving back to the people and the school that helped them get where they are, I think it shows great maturity.
"As you look around at all the Top 25 teams in the country, that happens on a regular basis. We've had a lot of talent come through here. For Randy to step up, I'm immensely proud of him. It's great to get him back involved."
It was not immediately known how much of the $100,000 scholarship Moss was paying for.
"After the weekend we should have some details," Marshall Athletic Director Bob Marcum said Monday. "It's a little premature to comment on it."
Moss and ex-teammate Chad Pennington are scheduled to serve as honorary coaches at the Green-White scrimmage on Saturday that marks the end of spring practices. The 1996 team, which went 15-0, is holding a reunion this week.

Smooth move: Moss opens juice bar in West Virginia

Moss put his money where his mouth was, opening an Inta Juice franchise in his native West Virginia and investing in the company.

<!-- begin text11 div --><TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD style="PADDING-TOP: 10px" vAlign=top><!-- begin leftcol --><!-- template inline -->CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Randy Moss walked behind the counter in a pinstripe suit with a red striped tie, traded his jacket for an apron, took off his sunglasses and went to work making smoothies for customers at his fruit-juice franchise Saturday.

Hundreds of people turned out at the grand opening of the Inta Juice store in Charleston to get Moss' autograph and try the product the all-pro wide receiver first tasted while he was with the Minnesota Vikings.

"Am I getting paid for doing this today?" Moss said, flashing a smile.

"Yeah, we've got minimum wage coming to you," replied Berkley Fuller, executive vice president and chief business development officer of Fort Collins, Colo-based Inta Juice.

The store sells more than 50 flavors of fruit smoothies and fresh juices, along with healthy snacks.

The first smoothie Moss made, Luscious Lemon, was bought by Joe Burgess of South Charleston for his wife, Carol, who returned a few minutes later to get Moss' autograph on her cup.

"I think it's a great thing that he's doing. It's beneficial for the community," Joe Burgess said. "He's putting his roots back down in West Virginia. Right now Randy is trying to come back and pay back the community."

It all started when Moss, now with the Oakland Raiders, and his Vikings teammates would often visit an Inta Juice franchise in Eden Prairie, Minn., near the team's headquarters.

His favorite was the Caribbean Blend, made with lime sherbet, raspberry juice, strawberries and bananas.

"It's really the first one that I ever tasted," Moss said. "I fell in love with it.

"By being so healthy and being able to taste the product, I was overwhelmed. Whenever I figured out that I could have something like this of my own, that's why I did it."

A year ago, Moss and his lawyer, Tim DiPiero, were visiting a Florida business that makes a mask spoofing Moss and his trademark afro. Moss told DiPiero he wanted to go try a smoothie at an Inta Juice competitor's shop and the subject of Inta came up.

Moss, a Rand native, then directed DiPiero to call Inta Juice about bringing a franchise to his native West Virginia. DiPiero was skeptical at first.

"I said, 'I don't know. West Virginia, we're a bunch of people who seem to like junk food,"' DiPiero recalled telling Moss. "'I don't know if they'll go for this healthy food."'

But that made Moss, who shies away from junk food, even more determined.

"I just think it's a good fit," Moss said. "We really didn't have anything here in town for the people that tasted like this and being as healthy as it is. So I just thought about investing and bringing it back home."

Like DiPiero, Fuller wasn't so sure initially, either.

"My first reaction was a little bit of surprise," Fuller said. "Why is Randy contacting us? What's he interested in?"

Moss went to Colorado to talk with company officials directly and won them over. Not only did Moss start the process of opening a franchise, he made an undisclosed, substantial investment in Inta Juice, earned a seat on the board of directors and became involved in marketing the company.

He even attended a soccer game for Fuller's daughter, which showed Fuller that Moss is not like the oft-criticized football player. Once someone gets to know him in person, "he really is different than the way the media kind of makes him out to be," Fuller said.

It turns out that smoothies were another way for Moss to smooth out a rift with his home state.

Although he was a Heisman Trophy finalist at Marshall in 1997, Moss hasn't been a hero in the community.

He spent a few days in jail for a parole violation in 1996. By his rookie season with the Vikings in 1997, several articles were written in which Moss criticized his home state and said he was happy to get out of West Virginia.

But his image continued to take a hit.

There was his "I play when I want to play" comment with the Vikings. He squirted an official with a water bottle in 1999, verbally abused corporate sponsors on a team bus in 2001 and bumped a traffic control officer with his car in 2002.

In 2004, Moss was fined $10,000 for pretending to pull down his pants and moon the Green Bay crowd during Minnesota's playoff win and also drew criticism for leaving the field with 2 seconds left in a regular-season loss against Washington.

But over the years, Moss has held annual autograph sessions for children in Charleston and has taken several busloads of kids to an Ohio amusement park.

"I think it takes time," DiPiero said outside Moss' Inta Juice store. "Actions speak louder than words. We've never had so much positive feedback than we've had from this. You can tell by the turnout that the people are excited.

"I don't think there's any doubt that the healing's been going on for some time and the repair is pretty much finished. I think we're in good shape now. It's all positive."
