Supposedly stood up and humiliated a local small businessman who provided free catering to the team by saying "I wouldn't feed this to my dog!" Then his behavior in New England sealed the deal.

If this is true, props to the Vikings. I know it's cool to pile on Childress now, but I applaud his stance in this case.


When did Steve Smith do something like that?

I really don't care about all the other "Moss Issues" BUT the fact he treated those people that way makes my blood boil!! Even if he thought it was crap at least act like a human and be respectful!!


I agree. Don't be an ass. Either say no thank you or take a bit and discretely toss it aside.

Some hole in the wall places have the best food. I read the article and felt bad for the people. If I were in the room, I'd have given him a piece of my mind.

My feeling is this, he had ample opportunities to act this way before, something had to be a catalyst for him to act this way. My guess is that he was either just looking for a way out or someone rubbed him the wrong way going into the dinner. Not excusing his actions at all but simple human psychology says there is a lot more to this than it seems.

Also Childress should have lost his job years ago, he's already lost the team.

Oh, about a gazillion times. To a caterer specifically? Maybe not.

Moss is a great talent, but he really does need a good kicking.

Meat doesn't need examples. Since all of his posts are funny remarks and conjecture why should he?

examples?


* He once yelled at a kid at a school appearance because the kid was talking while he was.

* He once yelled at a training camp intern who was told to go ask him some questions for the next preseason game program. Smith told him that he already told the PR people he wouldn't do one of their programs again since they put someone else on the cover of the first one.

* He has this air horn that he keeps in his locker so that he can blow it at 2 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays (media days) to let the press know their hour is up. The locals hate him for it, since many of the players are only available for brief periods and many come in at five til 2. I once saw a reporter who had come across country just to interview one of our linemen wait patiently for 15 minutes for the local media to be done with the guy so he could do a one-on-one. He gets about two words out of his mouth before Smith starts blowing his air horn. He smiles, waits a second then tries again. Again Smith blows it. Waits again, tries again, but now Smith is watching the guy and blowing it every time the guy tries to speak.

I've heard much, much worse, but those are three that I witnessed first hand.
