  • Randy Moss & Moongate

       January 10, 2005

    Update: Madison business gets back at Moss with billboards.

    While the lovely Rachel Lucas of Blue-Eyed Infidel may rate Brett Favre only slightly below Michael Moore in her hierarchy of hatred, she may have a point about Randy Moss. Sure, mooning the Lambeau Field crowd is classless and feigning taking a dump and wiping his ass on the goalpost is just gross, but it's not the end of the world.

    I hate Moss with the fire of a thousand suns. I hate the Viqueens even more. I can't decide whether I want them to lose by 70 points Sunday or if I want them to tease their fans into thinking they could finally win a Super Bowl, and then lose. But, all of that said, what Moss did to the Lambeau crowd isn't all that different from what the University of Wisconsin Marching Band did to him back in November:

    The Wisconsin marching band was on hand and jacked up the stakes when it dispatched an 18-person tuba brigade to the end zone, playing the only kind of music 18 tubas can.

    The kicker, though: Draped over each tuba's horn opening was a cloth, with a letter taped on to that cloth, and as the Badger tubas marched across the end zone to the delight of the Lambeau Lunatics, the letters spelled out: "W-H-E-R-E (space) Y-O-U (space) A-T (space) M-O-S-S?"

    Tremendous stuff.

    Randy Moss, injured and out of the game, dissed by band geeks! By tubas, no less!

    The cut to Moss in the ski cap, half-enraged, half-amused by the Tuba Diss was worth it all.

    Why is that funny and what Moss did unforgivable? I have no idea. I think they're both pretty funny. Moss is a jerk, but not because of what he did yesterday. He's a jerk because he quits on plays and quits on his team. Unfortunately for Packer fans, where he was at yesterday was in the endzone. A lot.

    I think sportswriters get all hot and bothered about things like this just to stir up controversy. I suspect it makes them feel like real reporters.

    2 tds and 70 yards = "in the endzone alot"?

    How is what the band did any different than any of the signs in the stands on Sunday? They aren't. Moss' faux moon wasn't "disgusting" but it was classless and tasteless and I am sorry that my 10 year old son had to see it.

    The problem with Moss and TO and the rest of the celebrate and trash talk every single play is that 10 year kids in Park and Rec flag football are emulating them.

    I helped coach my son's football team this year. It was flag football. My kids attend a small non-denomnational Christian school and one of the main points we stress is good sportsmanship. Every single stinking game we had to listen to our kids complain about the trash talking from the other team. Where do they get this from? From the likes of Moss, TO, etc and sadly even some Packers. Next time I am at a friend's house and beat them in a game, I will pretend to moon them and their family as a show of "jus' having some fun wit my boyz"

    Moss' action was tastelss and a larger symptom of the me first attitude of many professional athletes these days.

    It's a good thing your 10-year old has a Dad to tell him how classless stuff like that is. Of course, it's your job to do that. If kids are emulating Randy Moss in league play, then I'll blame their parents and coaches before I'll blame Randy Moss.

    I think the problem is that nowadays when a Moss or TO pulls something like this, they don't get the immediate bopping on the field they so richly deserve. That's how you stop that stuff: you look the other way when the other team gets their revenge. A fine means nothing to Moss, but a cheapshot might make him wake up. Why doesn't the league just happen to overlook a Packer corner giving him a good shot on the next play? That'd make Moss think twice before "crapping" on the field again.

    Isn't this how it happened in the old days when all the athletes were so gentile & polite?

    I had the same thought....why didn't Al Harris just blast him on the line of scrimmage? Or have Carroll do it....he is going to get his share of penalties anyway make it a useful one. And not cheap like happened with Ferguson....just forget about covering and lower your shoulder and drive through his stomach.

    I am afraid the "salad days" of Packer football are over for a while. It was a good run. I just don't see them turning this thing around quick enough before Favre says enough.

    Lost in all of this is that Moss was emulating what Packer fans do to him--and every other visiting team--as their bus leaves Lambeau after every game.

    I wonder how many Packer fans bring their kids along to join in the festivities....?

    Moss wiping himself on the goalpost? Maybe his way of saying some Cheeseheads need to wipe....

    My point? Quit being hypocrites and quit being crybabies. If you can't take it, don't dish it out.
