Randy Moss on fan support:

I've been booed before. I just shake it off. But from a team standpoint, if we're hearing our fans boo, then that means that they're not behind us. And being home in the Metrodome, they've got to be behind us 100 percent, through thick and thin. If we win, be behind us. If we lose, be behind us.
Doesn't that require playing hard on every play. On a few of those Culpepper interceptions it looked like Moss was loafing around.

Cute...Moss can tell the paying fans how they are supposed to give 100% yet put in half a days work on the field. What a hypocrite.

Hahahahaha, Randy went all out on that joke. You have to give him credit for the comedy. And the leadership! What a leader!

Has he become too important to the Vikings organization to touch? Can he be disciplined?

Or has the Randy ratio (40% of passes go to Moss, as decided by Tice) made him invincible to criticism?

Moss arrested for pushing officer with car - This is really bad news for us Vikings fans.

It's apparent that Moss was coddled by Green and that Tice is going to do the same. The Vikes really need to invest in a coach that has the intestinal fortitude to either (a) get Moss under control or (b) get this cancer off of the team. And that is really what he is, a cancer. A cancer damn good at catching footballs (when he wants), but a cancer nonetheless. He is arguably the most disruptive player in the game today and needs to be dealt with as such. The media still kiss his ass at every turn and he eats the hype up. They evidently forget that football is a team sport. I'll wager this- Moss will never wear a championship ring. Not due to his own lack of talent or the talent of surrounding players, but to his own attitude. At least Tyson was champ. If this burn-out continues his same path, he won't even get close to that.

Arguably, the guy has the most skills of any wide receiver in NFL history. He's big, fast, and has great hands; but he's an asshole who's not dedicated to winning. If this keeps up, Minnesota will have to cut Moss or Culpepper will kill him. His time with the Vikings will be up.

Vikes should trade him while they can still get something for him. Or he could join up with Jeff George, Lawrence Phillips and Ryan Leaf for an All-Thug Team.
