Moss reportedly mouthed off at corporate sponsors
ESPN.com news services
The Minnesota Vikings fined receiver Randy Moss $15,000 last month after he verbally abused a group of corporate sponsors on a team bus in Philadelphia, several people with knowledge of the situation told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The incident occurred Nov. 11 as the team was preparing to leave Veterans Stadium after a 48-17 loss to the Eagles. The Vikings, like most other NFL teams, typically invite top executives of the companies that advertise with them to road games. The executives travel with the team and watch the games from suites or club seats.
After the Eagles game, a handful of those sponsors boarded the team bus ahead of Moss and other players. They sat down in seats near the front, according to witnesses, and waited to leave for the airport, the Star-Tribune reported.
Moss was one of the last players to board and, according to witnesses, found the seat he wanted occupied by a sponsor. The witnesses said Moss asked that his seat and those around it be vacated.
The witnesses said the sponsors initially did not know whether Moss was serious, according to the newspaper. When Moss eventually raised his voice and demanded they move, a few sponsors changed seats. Moss sat down and the bus departed.
Coach Dennis Green would not take a question about the incident or the fine Wednesday, and no one else from the organization would comment. Moss declined to comment as he departed the Vikings' practice facility, and his agent, Dante DiTrapano, had no comment when reached at his West Virginia office, the Star Tribune said.
The NFL has fined Moss $20,000 for three infractions this season -- two for taunting and one for wearing an unapproved cap on the sideline during a preseason game.
Yeah - I want him on my team.

Remember when the talk was about Vermeil and if he ever kick himself for not drafting Moss instead of Grant. This kid is a cancer locked into an organization for 7 more years.
Who is kicking who now.

I doubt if Randy Moss has any major corporate sponsors begging for him to advertise their product. I think Keyshawn would get a Chunky Soup commercial before this jerk.
Moss needs a diaper change, hey hcs you busy? LOL
I had heard of Moss while he was in college, but the first time I saw him was on the Heisman Awards show. He was sitting there with his dreads and his shades, looking like a disrespectful a$$. I wondered, even with his talents, who would want this trouble maker. Then, Minnesota took him and CC, who I respect(ed) took him under his wing. With Randall throwing to him and CC's class on "class", I started appreciating him. This was a guy I wanted on my team.
Since this major contract ($$$), that "dreads and shade's" attitude has resurfaced. His attitude, and work ethic are going to be the ruin of him and the Vike's. No, I do not think that every good player gives 110% on every play. But I feel that great players give all they got when it is needed. They also don't advertise when they do only give 90%.
I also feel that instead of CC teaching Moss, Moss has started to teach CC. And that, I think is the biggest shame...

Yes, nice award, well deserved!
Talk about having to grow up! Vikings are really going through a very stressful season -- since training camp of course.
But this brat, this millionaire, has only made matters worse. What a disgrace for teamates and for the NFL... To think there are rookies much more mature and professional than Moss, playing harder, maintaing their cool, learning.
Good grief... :mask:
Randy Moss is the star player of the vikings and thus one of the leaders WHAT A PITIFUL lEADER.... Any team whoes star player makes ridiclus, harrasing statements; that team will not win.Rams Rule
