Moss plans more antics in Oakland

Randy Moss apologized for any absurd on-field antics before the fact — Oakland's new star receiver plans to celebrate in the same fashion he always has.

And the Raiders are embracing his do-it-my-way approach.

"There's no telling what you're going to see," Moss said Monday in his first interview at Raiders training camp in Napa, Calif. "I love what I do. I love having fun. When it comes at big games, you never know what you're going to see out of me. As long as we win, I'm just having fun. If the antics come, then I'm here to apologize first before they even happen. I'm going to have fun, man, believe that."

Moss unplugged

SAN FRANCISCO -- Randy Moss was in a good mood Saturday night. A really good mood, considering he was uncharacteristically overshadowed by teammates in his Oakland Raiders debut, a 21-13 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers at Monster Park earlier that evening.

He was humble, for the most part. And he sure sounded unselfish, praising quarterback Kerry Collins and coach Norv Turner's diverse offense as "probably the best I've been in ever, from high school all the way to the pros."

Moss also seemed to let go of the past seven years in Minnesota. He wished the Vikings the best of luck in 2005 and basically called a truce in his long-distance feud with quarterback Daunte Culpepper.

"To be honest, I really don't know how the Vikings will do," Moss said. "I would really like to see how they handle me not being there because there was a lot of pressure put on me to go out week in and week out and do certain things.

"It will be interesting to watch because I know those guys personally. I know they can make plays. If I watch them not succeed, it'll probably make me mad inside because I know they can be good."

As for Culpepper, Moss said the two of them are "cool" with each other now. He chalked up most of the comments on both sides to their "competitiveness" and said it's time for each of them to move on and "see whose team does what."

Moss didn't even bite when reminded that Culpepper had been quoted as saying that Moss has "some serious issues."

"I think a lot of things have been said throughout the last six, seven months that really wasn't friendly," Moss said. "But I really don't want to get back into that. That's not me. I don't like to downplay a lot of stuff, but at the same time if I know somebody and know they have a good heart, I really don't want to get into a dispute with Daunte.

"I just have so much faith in him that he could be a good player and a good man. He also believes in me. But for his remarks and what he said, if that's what he feels, that's what he feels."

Moss and the first-string offense ran 19 plays in the first quarter before stepping aside Saturday night. Collins, who completed eight of 12 attempts for 68 yards, threw only one pass to Moss, an 11-yard completion.

On most pass plays, Collins either didn't look for Moss or was quick to look away. Collins ignored a wide-open Moss over the middle on one play and looked away from him twice on plays from the 49ers' 10-yard line.

"To be honest with you, this offense is designed just to hit the open man," Moss said. "I got used to it in minicamp very quickly. If a play is designed to go to me and I'm double- and triple-covered, then Kerry's reads will take him elsewhere. I think that's what I like about this offense."

Moss even showed some rare self-deprecating humor when told that teammates are praising him for instantly recognizing and calling out defensive coverages.

"I never claimed to be smart," Moss said. "But I guess by me being the best receiver in the league I have to have a good grade at something. If it's not my ability, then it has to be my smartness."

Moss laughed when a reporter asked for his take on the Terrell Owens mess in Philadelphia. He said he supports Owens' request for a raise, but joked that he's not in any position to offer T.O. advice.

"For all the distractions and stuff like that, who am I to tell him anything?" Moss said. "I'm Mr. Distraction himself."

Unlike Owens, Moss said he never had any intention of playing for more than one team.

"To be honest, I thought I'd end my career in Minnesota," Moss said. "I built a house there. But life goes on. I'm not really down on myself or down on the Vikings for letting me go.

"I just think it was a business opportunity that Red McCombs seen that was for the good or for the bad. I'm here now, so the only thing I can do is try to help this team get to the Super Bowl."

Moss a déjà fumé de la mari


Randy Moss. (Photo PC) Jeudi 18 août 2005 - (RDS) - Le receveur de passes des Raiders d'Oakland Randy Moss l'avoue ouvertement: il a déjà fumé de la marijuana depuis son entrée dans la NFL, en 1998. En fait, Moss consomme parfois de la marijuana "à la pleine lune".

"Oui, j'ai consommé de la marijuana depuis mon entrée dans la ligue", a déclaré Moss lors d'une entrevue à HBO. "Par contre, je n'abuse pas et je ne laisserai pas la drogue prendre le contrôle sur moi".

Pressé de question à savoir s'il fumait toujours de la marijuana, le receveur a déclaré: "J'ai du plaisir. Et j'espère ne pas m'attirer les foudres de la NFL en disant ça. J'aime avoir du plaisir. J'en ai eu pendant toutes mes années, et surtout pendant la saison morte"

"Mais je ne veux pas que les enfants qui m'écoutent se disent «Si Randy Moss en prend, je vais en prendre aussi». Je ne veux pas embarquer là-dedans. Comme je dis, j'ai déjà pris de la mari et il m'arrive d'en prendre lors de la pleine lune".

La politique de la NFL prévoit dix tests par mois après un premier résultat positif. Une deuxième violation entraîne une peine égale au salaire du joueur pendant quatre matchs; une troisième, une suspension de quatre matchs; une quatrième, une suspension d'un an.

À ce jour, Moss n'a jamais été suspendu pour avoir violé la politique de la ligue sur les drogues.

Ouais comme tu vois, le sort s'acharne sur moi.
Moi qui considérais ce type comme un Dieu, voilà que j'apprend qu'il se drogue.
J'ai des principes qui sont à l'opposé de ce type de comportement. Comment vais-je expliquer à ma fille qui est partie aux JMJ hier que son père cautionne un type qui ne respecte pas la loi, un bandit, un raté.

Une fois de plus, je suis trahi par ma naiveté. Ce gars a profité de mon grand coeur pour y faire une place au chaud pour finir par me planter dans le dos.

Inadmissible.

Jamais un gars comme ça aura sa place dans une des équipes que je coacherai.

Il devrait se remettre en question et prendre exemple sur un type comme...le Prêtre Holmes qui, non seulement est un super joueur de football mais un homme bien.

Arizona coach gets different look at Moss

OAKLAND, Calif. - If anyone knows Randy Moss' tendencies, it's Dennis Green. But the Arizona coach isn't about to start listing ways to stop the superstar receiver.

"Oh no, there are none,"
Green said as he prepared the Cardinals for their exhibition game at Oakland on Friday night. "I think keeping him off the field is the best way to defend against him. Put them in a situation where they have to maybe play catch-up and give their intentions away sooner than they want to or not be able to go deep."

So far, Moss has been a quiet presence in an offense that acquired him to be the top target for Kerry Collins. That is expected to change in a hurry once the regular season kicks off and Moss is on the field all the time.

Green, in his second season with the Cardinals, was Moss' head coach in Minnesota for four years.

Moss, who joined the Raiders in March in a trade with the Vikings, has three receptions for 34 yards through the first two preseason games, both losses. He made one catch against San Francisco two weeks ago and two in a 19-17 loss at Houston last Saturday - and he has yet to score a touchdown or make a catch of longer than 14 yards.

Seven of his teammates have more receptions than Moss, who has vowed to unveil some more crazy celebratory antics when the timing is appropriate this season.

Green knows Moss will be eager to perform Friday in his first game at the Coliseum.

"I think he's ready to come out and play," Green said. "He'll probably want to get some action because neither he nor Jerry Porter have caught very many balls."

Porter, Oakland's top receiver last season, won't be ready to make his first appearance as he recovers from a pulled hamstring sustained early in camp. But the Raiders will get their first glimpse of Ronald Curry, who was having a breakout season last year before tearing his Achilles' tendon and missing the final four games before a long offseason of rehabilitation.

The Cardinals beat Dallas and Kansas City in their first two games and have given up only 28 points. Green doesn't think his team has played well yet, despite the positive results.

"They played great defense last year," Raiders coach Norv Turner said. "They are a speed defensive group. I know when we played them last year in preseason we were impressed with their speed. They present the speed problem which we have not seen - that pure pass rush, get-up-the- field speed."

Kurt Warner is the most experienced quarterback Oakland has faced so far. The Raiders are gaining confidence in their defense after a strong camp dedicated to proving wrong the doubters who keep saying Oakland will need to score 50 points a game to win.

The Raiders ranked 30th overall on defense among the 32 teams last season. The Cardinals are still trying to make things click, too.

"We still have a ways to go to be what we can be and to be where we want to be, especially by that first game," Warner said. "We're going to play more snaps in this game, so it becomes more important because this is a chance for us to work together and grow together in this type of setting, not knowing how much we're going play in this last one."

The Raiders allowed mobile Houston quarterback David Carr to complete 6 of 8 for 43 yards and a touchdown on the Texans' opening drive last week.

"The last game, we didn't start off well," cornerback Charles Woodson said. "We let them drive down the field and score a touchdown, and that's something we can't do."

La face cachée de Randy.

Moss' thoughtfulness catches many off guard

ALAMEDA - He's the Rubik's Cube of the NFL, placed inside "The Matrix." He's like taking calculus - without a pencil or paper.
Complex? Oh, yes, Randy Moss is that. He's also controversial, cocky and ...

Compassionate?

This is the same Moss who last month brazenly admitted to violating the NFL's drug policy. Who in January pantomimed pulling his pants down to "moon" fans inside Green Bay's Lambeau Field. Who a few weeks before that walked off the field and into the locker room without his former Minnesota Vikings teammates, during a game.

Moss also bumped a police officer partially down a Minneapolis street after a 2002 traffic citation. He accosted a Vikings corporate sponsor on a team bus in 2001, berated teammates and coaches on the sideline and squirted water at a game official during a playoff game in 2000.

But the Raiders' new, extraordinary receiver with an extraordinary list of transgressions - around whom regressed Oakland has built an entire season of renewed hope and possible success - is also an adored philanthropist.
At least he is to the kids at Catholic Charities' St. Joseph's Home for Children in Minneapolis. Before his March trade to the Raiders that shook the NFL, Moss volunteered during the 2004 season at the self-described shelter for "children in crisis."

On multiple visits, Moss gathered grade school-aged kids of Hennepin County who had been abandoned, who had been victims of abuse and were homeless into St. Joseph's cafeteria to read books.

He was glued to their book reports. He was a pizza delivery man.

"He was wonderful," said Marybeth Hanson, public relations manager for Catholic Charities, Minneapolis. "He built a nice rapport with the kids. He was able to connect with them, over time. That's not easy, given where they've come from. These are kids who have a tough time coming out of their shell. Trusting adults is not easy for them."

They trust Moss, and vice versa. Hanson said Moss has committed more of his time to St. Joseph's after this season, even though his NFL address is now 2,050 miles west.

Hanson stressed that Moss is "just one of 10,200 volunteers" for Catholic Charities, Minneapolis.

But how many of the other 10,199 did this? Each season, from his rookie year of 1998 until his trade to Oakland, Moss bought four Vikings season tickets. For each home game, Moss would distribute three tickets to St. Joseph's students who excelled in the reading program. The fourth seat went to an adult chaperone.
When asked last month at his new team's Napa training camp if he was going to buy four Raiders tickets for this season, Moss stared straight ahead. He then ducked his chin slightly, raised his ever-present, sound booth-sized headphones over his ears and tightly braided hair, and silently walked away. Multiple attempts to find out the same information through team officials failed.

But the kids at Bancroft Elementary School in south Minneapolis have heard from Moss.

Principal Kevin Welch said Moss approached the Vikings last year and volunteered to participate in the school's reading program. Moss wanted to continue a relationship with Bancroft started by the late Minnesota offensive lineman Korey Stringer, Moss' former teammate. Moss then modeled the reading program after the one he had in elementary school in Rand, W.Va., which meant he delivered pizza to readers for completing books.

"He came five times, and he hosted three pizza parties," Welch said Thursday. "The thing I respect most about it was, he insisted there be no press coverage. He wanted it to be a secret, so it would be a surprise for the kids."
Welch said Moss didn't even want parents to know of his visits in advance.

"He gets a lot of bad press. But I really was impressed with what he did for us and that he wanted to keep the focus on the kids," Welch said. "His message was heartfelt."Kids in Charleston, W.Va., think so, too.

They love the huge summer parties Moss has thrown in the state's capital, 45 minutes up the Kanawha River from his small hometown. Last year, Moss bought Charleston's children an entire carnival - rides, operators, concession stands, the whole deal.

Two summers ago, Moss chartered buses and joined more kids on a trip north to Ohio's Cedar Point amusement park, known as the "Roller Coaster Capital of the World."

Not that Moss wants you to know about all this.

Asked whether he would be throwing another bash this summer, before Raiders training camp, Moss said he was too busy moving West to return home. Then, in mid-July, Moss was spotted back in West Virginia, seeing his old buddies in Rand.

Moss' agent, Dante di Trapano, did not return a phone call asking about his client's benevolence.

So why doesn't a guy who could use a few positive words to offset his shredded public image talk about his generosity to children? Moss seems wary of being criticized for trying to selfishly promote his good deeds, fearing they will appear hollow.

Such is the depth of cynicism Moss and his other far better-known actions have cultivated over eight NFL seasons.

"The reason why I don't publicize it, I really don't have an answer, but that it's something I'm used to doing," Moss said last month. "It's just me being me. It's just being real. I just keep it real with life. I try to be truthful. I try to be straightforward. Man, that's just keeping it real.

"It's just something we are supposed to do. It's not just something we do to try to get publicity - and not just me, any star athlete, movie star, whoever they may be. I just think it's something we are supposed to do, not really just because the cameras are on."

Now, the cameras are all on Moss in Oakland. So are the eyes of his new Raiders teammates.

They like what they see, just like the kids in Minneapolis and Charleston.

"I don't think the guy should be looked at as an outcast or be looked at in a negative way because of some personal things that might have happened," running back and fellow offseason import LaMont Jordan said.

"Being around Randy, I've gotten to know not Randy Moss the football player, but Randy Moss the person. And I think that he has a lot of passion. Not just about football, but about life.

"I think the media has done a good job portraying him being a bad person, when in reality he's not," Jordan said.

A free agent from the New York Jets, Jordan said he initially bought into the unsavory part of Moss' media image. Then he decided, " 'I'm not going to judge a guy based on how he's portrayed in the media. I'm going to judge this man based on him.' And Randy ... he's been phenomenal."Defensive tackle and fellow league bad-boy Warren Sapp knows controversy. He also knows the Moss of whom Jordan speaks.

"As far as me, as a teammate of mine? I love him," Sapp said last month on the night Moss' marijuana admission became public.

So Moss glides on, catching passes with stunning ease and leaving debate and judgments in his wake.

Does he worry that his complexity is more known as petulance, that he's destined to forever be known as a great player but also a bad guy?

"No. I mean, I don't care," he said. "I mean, that stuff doesn't bother me, what people write.

"You know, what people write in the papers, positive or negative, you have to go about your day. The negative part of it, I may read it, but I still have go do my job. So, I don't worry about that."

The rest of us do that for him.

A lecture du play by play de nfl.com du match de cette nuit, j'ai un avis plus mitigé sur la perf de mon Randy cette nuit.

En effet, après son long TD, il fait pas grand chose et j'ai compté une bonne demi-douzaine de "K.Collins pass to R.Moss. Incomplete"

D'un coté, je sais pas si on peut dire que c'est entierement de sa faute. A mon avis, après le TD, il ont décidé de le prendre et de le prendre à plusieurs (j'ai vu ça en tout cas sur plusieurs photos du matchs. Moss déclare avoir été pris à 2 voire 3 joueurs à certains moments. C'est dire si le gars est craint purée.

Citation :
Moss has moment, but it doesn't lastAfter long scoring play, star receiver held in check
FOXBOROUGH -- Why didn't Kerry Collins heave it up to Randy Moss on virtually every play last night? Because he couldn't, that's why.
Moss had his big moment with 9:04 remaining in the second quarter of New England's 30-20 win, when Oakland's star receiver beat Tyrone Poole in coverage, made an acrobatic catch, and avoided Rodney Harrison before cruising into the end zone. But after that 73-yard hookup, the Patriots made adjustments and Moss never really had much of a chance to make another play. The Patriots switched from the injured Poole to Chad Scott, who covered Moss well one-on-one. Couple that with the fact that quarterback Collins was running for his life most of the second half, and it was a recipe for disaster for the Raiders.
Moss, who had five catches for 130 yards, proved on his long touchdown that there's really no way to completely take him out of a game, but the Patriots simply made it miserable for Collins, who was facing major pressure from the New England front seven.
''There was pressure, no doubt," said Collins. ''The guys up front had their hands full and they did the best they could. The Patriots have an awesome defense. What hurt was all the penalties we had. You can't have those kinds of penalties or turnovers against a team like that. But hopefully, we can learn from our mistakes and straighten things out next week."
Collins, who completed just 18 of 40 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns, said Moss's big play was a thing of beauty. Unfortunately there weren't enough of them.
''It was awesome," said Collins, whose team was penalized 16 times for 149 yards. ''Any time we have one-on-one matchups we're going to try to take advantage of it. Randy did an unbelievable job concentrating on the play. To see it up in the air and him staying with it is unbelievable. He's a great athlete. What we have to do is be able to take advantage of situations when Randy isn't that open. We have to be able to get the ball someplace else."
Moss said he has all the respect in the world for the Patriots.
''They doubled and triple-teamed me," he said. ''They covered me well. They have great schemes. They really play great defense out there. It's hard to break anything against them so when you have a chance to make a big play like that, it's a big thing. I mean Kerry called that play in the huddle and he read their defense very well on that. But my hat is off to the Patriots."
Raiders coach Norv Turner thought Moss played with intensity throughout the game, which is something he may not have always done during his tenure with the Minnesota Vikings.
''I thought we had very good intensity in the first half, but I don't think our intensity was nearly as much as it was in the second half," Moss said. ''It came down to who wanted it more and to be honest it was [the Patriots]. The one thing we have to do is forget about this one and move on with the rest of the season. I think we're going to be all right if we take care of our own business and stay away from bad plays."
Lamont Jordan, the other big addition to the Raiders offense, managed 70 yards on 18 carries. He was also displeased with the number of penalties called on the Silver and Black.
''In New York, we were one of the least penalized teams in the league," Jordan said of his time with the Jets. ''The one thing I learned from playing over there is when you play the New England Patriots, you'd better not make mistakes and if you have a chance to take advantage of a small opening you'd better do it. Everybody said the Patriots would lose something when they lost [coordinators Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel], but I'm telling you they're the same team. Nothing's changed."
Count Turner among those who was sick of seeing all the yellow flags dotting the Gillette Stadium turf.
''We have to go back and look at each one and coach them up," said Turner. ''We can't commit that many penalties against any team in the NFL."
Warren Sapp said the turning point for the Raiders was the huge turnover when Vince Wilfork intercepted Collins at the Oakland 20 with 5:58 remaining in the third quarter. The Patriots scored three plays later.
''That made it 23-14 and it could have been 23-20 or whatever and it would have been a close ballgame," Sapp said. ''It's little things like that that we could have done to change the course of the game. But it got away from us. We made mistakes and those are things we have to correct."
Former Patriot Bobby Hamilton said there was nothing the Patriots threw at them they didn't expect.
''They just executed well," Hamilton said. ''They're a great team. Not much has changed."

JE RAPPELLE QUE CE TOPIC PEUT ETRE ZAPPE POUR CEUX QUE ça SOULE.

ceci étant dit, je continue.
Revue de presse:


Citation :
New England safety Rodney Harrison said there was no shame in giving up five receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown to Randy Moss.
"He is the best receiver in the league," Harrison said after the Patriots beat the Oakland Raiders 30-20 Thursday night at Gillette Stadium.

"He's 6-foot-4, runs like a deer and can jump like Kobe Bryant."

Added Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin: "Any time you have Randy Moss in the lineup you have a chance to go 50, 60, 70 yards in one play."


Citation :
"I was getting doubled and tripled probably 95 percent of the night. I just wanted to try to work, and when I got single-safety man-to-man, I tried to pick up my game a little bit more," Moss said. "They called the play, the play was designed for me to go deep, and I looked up at the lights, saw the ball drop and had to put my hands on it. I can't hang my hat on that because we lost."


Citation :
Randy Moss admitted he felt pressure to perform Thursday night, with the NFL's opening night party set up for him at Gillette Stadium, with the country watching closely, eager to see what the Raiders' top offseason acquisition could do against the two-time defending Super Bowl champions.

"I think my emotions and nervousness was (about) the game -- the big stage, how much hype they put on it and Randy Moss this, Randy Moss that. I really tried not to buy into it whatsoever,'' said Moss,

PANIQUE A MINNESOTA
Son ombre plane plus que jamais...

C'est assez incroyable ce qui est entrain de se passer là-bas. Une fois de plus, la franchise est en crise. Minnesota, c'est un peu le PSG du FOOT US. affraid


Entendu du coté de Tampa:

Citation :
Do the Minnesota Vikings miss wide receiver Randy Moss? Right tackle Kenyatta Walker:
"He had five catches for 103 yards the other night in Oakland. Yeah, there's a difference," Walker said. "I'm glad he went over there. They (the Vikings) miss him."

Buccaneer cornerback Ronde Barber, who spent a few Sunday afternoons covering Moss, said his absence was noticeable.

"The only thing I'll say is we didn't see any deep balls," Barber said.

The Vikings' longest completion of the day was a 25-yarder to former University of Florida wideout Travis Taylor.



Entendu du coté des fans. Mega Blues.

Citation :
So what do we have left? We have a lackluster head coach who thinks he is the greatest coach since Bill Walsh and who is consequently driving the team into the ground.

Mike Tice will probably be a good assistant coach or offensive coordinator for another team someday. He is not head coach material, unless you never want to win a Super Bowl.
Randy Moss is no angel. Few of the greatest atheletes in the world are.

You do not trade Babe Ruth, Joe Montana, Magic Johnson, Ty Cobb, Dick Butkus, or Randy Moss.

If you trade Randy Moss, you regret it later.

What should have happened? The Vikings should have traded Mike Tice, and other coaches, and any players who couldn't accept Randy Moss on their team.

Yes, Randy Moss is different. He's a gazelle among the water bison. He's a cheetah among the ground hogs. He plays the same game, but it's almost like he is playing by different rules.

That is the way elite atheles are. If you have a bunch of football players on your squad plus Bronko Nagurski, you let Nagurski do things his way. If you have Jerry Rice, he will set an example. If you have Randy Moss, you let him do things his way, and have other rules for everybody else. That's the way it is. Sometimes life is unfair. You do not treat a cheetah like a ground hog.

Drafting Randy Moss was the greatest thing to happen to the Vikings since the franchise began. Now our fearless leaders have frittered away the opportunity of a lifetime and he is gone and they are still here. Quite frankly, I feel like the franchise has suffered a more grievous blow than it did after the Herschel Walker trade.

Compared to Randy Moss, Daunte Culpepper is a journeyman player.

The problem with riding Tice all the way to this season's inevitably miserable end is that you are going to drive away all your remaining talent, such as Kevin Williams and Udeze. You've got to give your brightest stars a ray of hope so that they see the ship turning around. Otherwise they will join another team, and no one will blame them.

Fire Tice now. Put in Cottrell or hire someone new. Just get somebody competent fast.

This is going to be a rebuilding year. A year from hell for us Vikings fans. Without Moss, the offensive line is exposed for the jerry-rigged patchwork it is, and now every opposing defense will crush it like a tin can.

I hope I am wrong, but I know I am right. I want to throw up.

Fixing the damage Tice has done, if it is even possible, will take years. Yet the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

I want the Vikings to move forwards again, and stop moving backwards.

End the pain now. Fire Mike Tice and turn a new page.

No. 18: Moss' Raiders jersey selling big in Minnesota

Shortly after Randy Moss was traded to Oakland in March, Charlie Dahl ordered 100 Raiders jerseys with Moss' No. 18 on the back for his Nick's Sports World shop in downtown Minneapolis.

Dahl, the store's general manager, assumed that would be enough to last him through the coming season. Five months later, Dahl is working on his third shipment of 100 Moss jerseys, and there is no end in sight.

"I already have sold 200, and I expect to have to go in again [for another order] once he starts making touchdowns in Oakland," Dahl said.

Nick's carries two types of Moss jerseys. A screen-printed replica costs $75, and the stitched-on authentic retails at $225. Both have been hot sellers. How hot? Nick's top-selling Vikings jersey has been Daunte Culpepper's No. 11 for the past two seasons. But sales of the replica jersey worn by the Vikings quarterback are trailing Moss replicas by 15 to 20 percent.

It's like the old days for Dahl, who said Moss' old No. 84 jersey was the top seller among Vikings uniforms in stock from 1998 to 2003. "We probably sold 500 or 600 a year," Dahl said. "The only reason I think Culpepper passed him was because everybody had a No. 84."

Sounds like plenty of folks will have a No. 18 to go along with it before long.

Radio announcer Paul Allen affected by Moss' absence

The Vikings' decision to trade Randy Moss to Oakland could prove costly for play-by-play announcer Paul Allen.

"This actually hits me in the pocketbook because with NFL Films they pay a yearly fee for announcers to be used on highlights and everything," said Allen, who also is a co-host of a midday show on KFAN (1130-AM). "There are three different slots of payment. The [announcers] they anticipate they are going to use a lot -- I think me and three others -- and then another level and another level.

"I always would get the call and they would say, 'We're going to use your stuff a lot.' I think a lot of it had to do with Randy, obviously. So without Randy it might cost me $2,000. So it might hit me right in the pocketbook."

The high-energy Allen spent three seasons describing Moss' on-field exploits, both good and bad.

"He just made it so exciting on his own with the separation he would get from the cornerback," Allen said. "When you watch it as much as I did and you see that natural separation, it's a thing of beauty. He did it all on his own."

Citation :

While Tice claimed to have little interest in seeing Randy Moss' debut with Oakland, Nate Burleson admitted he watched his old buddy's first game in a new uniform.
There was nothing unusual to Burleson about seeing Moss finish with five catches for 130 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 30-20 loss to New England, but it did take some time to adjust to the number on his former teammate's back.

"It was good to see him go out there and do the things he has been doing," Burleson said. "He was wearing No. 18, but he's still No. 84 to me. I'm just glad he's playing well out there."

Burleson couldn't watch the first half of Thursday's game live because he was at the Vikings kickoff gala in downtown Minneapolis. However, through the magic of TiVo, Burleson was able to watch it from the start. It was a good thing, too, since Moss' 73-yard touchdown catch came in the second quarter.

"I was very happy to see Randy get in the end zone," said Burleson, who credits Moss with helping him develop into the Vikings' top receiver. "That's what he does. He's one of the biggest threats in the game right now, and I know he's going to continue to do well all season."

En essayant de rester objectif, et à la lecture de toutes ces réactions de fan, je voudrais quand même nuancer un peu ces propos (je sais, c'est pas le but de ce topic, mais bon, on parle quand même de afro ).

Quand je lis que les Vikes auraient dû garder Moss et VIRER N'IMPORTE QUEL JOUEUR OU ENTRAINEUR NE POUVANT PAS LE SUPPORTER, ça me sidère. Si les Vikes avaient fait ça, Moss ne venait même plus s'entraîner. Et pourquoi l'aurait-il fait, d'ailleurs? Il faut quand même remettre les choses à leur place.
Moss a un talent énorme, mais ce n'est pas un QB: sa présence ne suffit pas à faire gagner des matches, encore moins se qualifier en playoffs (il n'y a qu'à voir le bilan des Vikings ces dernières saisons, alors que les performances personnelles de Moss restaient élevées). Et si la moitié d'une équipe n'aime pas un joueur, on ne vire pas la moitié de l'équipe. Ca ne résoudrait en rien les problèmes.

Je suis sûr que ce transfert était la meilleure solution pour les deux parties. Le staff et le club reste crédible en refusant de se laisser bouffer par un joueur, et Moss, consciemment ou pas, va se remettre en question, parce qu'il prend un nouveau départ. Ca ne m'étonnerait pas qu'il ait une attitude exemplaire à Oakland. On dit souvent que les sportifs acceptent d'un nouvel entraineur ce qu'ils refusaient de l'ancien. Je pense que le changement d'équipe, de coach et de système va faire du bien à Moss parce qu'il se sort d'une routine "NBAienne" (je prends mes stats et je vais me coucher) néfaste pour son image comme pour celles des Vikings.

Je suis d'accord avec la première partie de ton message.

Ya juste un truc qui colle pas dans une de tes phrases:

On dit souvent que les sportifs acceptent d'un nouvel entraineur ce qu'ils refusaient de l'ancien


La nuance est que depuis le départ de Dennis Green, les Vikes n'ont tjs pas trouvé un type qui pourrait le remplacer Mr. Green au poste de coach.

Donc c'est normal qu'il en ait tant fait puisqu'il n'y avait personne pour le recadrer.
