Moss unhappy in Minnesota?

Postby TTTBone » Thu Feb 12, 2004 5:31 pm

C.J., Star Tribune

Published February 12, 2004

Randy Moss is reportedly ticked off with coach Mike Tice about comments reported in this column on Jan 8. Spokesman-Recorder sports editor and radio guy Larry Fitzgerald Sr. said that Moss is making noises about wanting to be traded. (Read for yourself at larry-fitzgerald.com, click on the NFL.) "First of all, I ain't trading my best player," Tice told me Wednesday morning. "That's not going to happen. For some reason, somebody called Randy -- I know this for a fact -- and told him I called him crazy in the newspaper. I never called him nuts. Somebody is feeding him garbage." This is how I quoted Tice's metaphor: "I was talking to Red [Vikings owner McCombs] last week, and held my hand in a circle. I said, 'If Randy's a nut, I really believe in my heart I have cracked 70 percent of it.' " Tice was saying Moss' inconsistency on the field made him a tough nut to crack. "Well, Moss is steamed about it," Fitz said Tuesday. "He hasn't talked to the man since that Monday meeting they have after the regular season. He's not talking to him. I think they are going to wind up having to trade him." Oh, puhleeze. Moss should stop behaving like a nut -- and I do mean in the crazy way. "See," balked Fitz, a writer who could not wrap his mind around Tice's metaphors. "Just because you agree with Tice doesn't mean that Randy doesn't have a right to perceive it in a negative way. You understand." He got on his high horse to deliver those last two words. "He's still a person. He's still a human being." A being who gets into legal trouble for disobeying a traffic cop and then giving her an unauthorized ride on his automobile . . . who comes out of jail hiding his head under a coat and running from the media . . . who drives up to a memorial service with music blaring. Need I go on? "What if somebody called you a nut?" Fitz said. Some people do, and yet I don't care.

interesting stuff... remember CJ is the gossip columnist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

So another WR/Player begins his road of speculation...

They won't let him go though. He's too good.

Man, has Zimm heard this? I think Moss will remain a Viking for at least one or two more years but if he did leave, this could hurt his value as well as Culpepper's.

I think Moss and Tice will clear things up, but indications are that Moss is unhappy with the direction of the team. Moss might be happy to reunite with Denny in 'Zona, but I don't think Tice or Red would ever let that happen. Hope this gets cleared up, so Moss doesn't become some Prima Donna Wideout like TO or Meshawn.

Moss, if decides to be traded cos of Tice's comments..would be one of the most ridiculous decision he would have made.

All Moss needs to do is think abt the fans...their love and support through thick and thin.

Moss is Vikings identity.

Without Moss, jee I cannot imagine.

i pray to God that this is true. cause im pretty much positive that Tice would be fired before they would let Moss go. And I for one am anti- coach tice.
