Deion Sanders on Moss.: "Randy is the kind of dude that he's like a beautiful woman who can't cook, doesn't want to clean and doesn't want to take care of kids." (2nd item on the page, more inside)

What an ass. Which one?

Both, I guess. I was referring to Deion's remarks.

Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin as ROLE MODELS for proper behavior in the NFL? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA (spits coffee onto computer screen)

Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin as ROLE MODELS for proper behavior in the NFL? I dont think either one of them would say that their past behavior would be "role model" material. They have supposedly changed do maybe they are trying to help Moss not make the same mistakes they did! It may be a wierd decription, but if you think about it, it does make sence.

Is it Sunday yet?

Deion is on to something. We can file this safely in the "It takes one to know one" department.

Check out this exchange --

Reporter: "Write the check yet, Randy?" Moss: "When you're rich you don't write checks." Reporter: "If you don't write checks, how do you pay these guys?" Moss: "Straight cash, homey."

What Randy Moss did was typical of the jerk ass he is. What made me mad though was the comment he made after he was fined 10k. He said "10 thousand aint shit to me". For that I think the commissioner should suspend him for the playoffs. See how he feels about THAT. After all, it's one thing to taunt the other team. Hell, that's to be expected. But you NEVER insult the fans. WE are the ones who make the game possible.

hey who cares if he moons them media always have to make little humor a big thing and according to coach Dungy " they always moon the visiting team that lost to the packers"

Moss has definitely forgotten where he came from. I can tell you growing up $10k was more than his family could of dreamed of...take him for what he is worth...he will be broke in a few years.

More Randy Moss antics here. " Next time I might shake my [expletive]." Ass? Penis? Either way, comedy goldmine.

All I can say is I'm not easily offended and if Moss had stopped with the simulated depantsing I wouldn't complain but the assrubbing went over the line, beyond a reasonable level of humor into offensive vulgarity. Role model or not, paying fans deserve some respect even at the expense of a player's freedom to express himself.

See, I try to give the guy a break and then he does something stupid like spout off about how small the fine is. OKey doke, Randy ... it's now $250K. Sound better to you? Too bad Tagliabonehead won't have the nuts to make it happen.

what i don't get is how moss' fine for the fake moon is larger than burton's fine for a forearm to the noggin.

How come everytime someone makes a mistake or wants to have a little bit of fun everybody goes and makes a big deal about it. It could be a racial thing I mean what if Peyton Manning did something like that do you think that it would be all over the media the same way as Randy Moss is.The funny part about that is if he has a good year then everyones on his nuts but as soon as he messes up everybody stops ridding. I hope someone else does it. What if someone does it in the super bowl then what are they gonna do blast that person all over the news. Of course they are!

BigRob, did you see the link at the top of the page? Deion Sanders said this stuff, not Trent Lott or Jimmy the Greek or David Duke. Deion Sanders. Who's not only black, but who knows a thing or two about showboating on and off the football field. And if that wasn't your point, then you lost me somewhere in the middle of your comment. I do admit to hating Randy Moss, and will take my fucking like a man, but I've seen him (and many others, of all skin tones) act way more selfishly on & off the football field. I'm not a fan of taunting in general, but this was relatively tame, especially for Randy. That said, the more I think about Deion's words, the more I agree with them.

Moss is great! I agree with the Peyton Manning comparison, if he did that (not that he would) the media would praising his action as a true respect towards GB fans by giving back the actions that they give the players!

Talk about blown widely out of proportion. Next game he should celebrate a touchdown by mock-felating the tight end. Then we can sit back and watch heads explode. No Fun League indeed.

i do believe randy moss is very controversial, but joe buck made the mooning situation worse than it really was. what i dont understand is why mr. buck refuse to pay attention to a hurt randy moss burning green bay for the game deciding touchdown. another thing i dont understand is why the whole fox television staff downplayed how awful brett favre played. did anyone besides me see brett favre run five yards pass the line of scrimmage and throw a underhand pass? that play was worse than any touchdown celebration i have ever seen. or how about the FOUR interceptions, every one brett threw fox had an excuse.

Peyton Manning has always been a class act in the league. Consider me a Moss hater especially after his 10k comment...where did he come from and where would he be without football? Brett Favre had a bad game. Sanders and Irvin are not role models that's for sure.

"Randy's like that bitch who's not in the kitchen makin' me a sammich!" Next, we'll hear Rush Limbaugh talk about how "uppity" Moss is.

SG's perspective. Best all-around performance: Randy Moss First, he gets all the uptight guys on the studio shows in a hilarious lather. Honestly, Boomer Esiason became so angry during his pregame tirade on Moss, it was like watching Hitler give those crazy speeches in the late-30's. (Not to compare Boomer to Hitler, but you know what I mean.) Then, Moss decides to wear Thelma's afro from "Good Times." Then he kills the Packers downfield, drops a few 12-letter swear words on camera while screaming at the Lambeau fans, and caps things off with a second TD and the fake moon, which drove the MAWSM (middle-aged white sports media) bonkers again. And then he took credit for the Minny win by claiming that he caused such a distraction leading up the game, everyone was focusing on him and not the annual Minnesota collapse -- which was actually sorta true. (Moss' grade for the weekend: A-plus. You couldn't ask for much more.) I'll have more on this later, but for now, can I just ask. EMK and WFJR, are you MAWM?

I dunno about middle-aged (I'm 34 and plan to live to be 100 or so, as is the pattern in my family), but I'm white and formerly media. If you'll check, though, I said I didn't think what he did was such a big deal as a tongue-in-cheek (ha ha) response to the Lambeau faithful. The part about how it didn't mean anything to him to pick up a $10K fine, though -- that's just classless. Black, white, media or not ... Randy's still the best receiver in the game -- and a world-class knob.

Is the National Organization for Women going to comment on Sander's sexist analogy? Where is Martha Burke and Gloria?? Maybe Sanders can be Moss' broadcast role model when he retires and gets hired by a network desperate for ratings..what a sorry ass joke!
