I don't see the problem with any of this. Reporters get a certain time, Smith has every right to insist they leave after that time. Also I see nothing wrong with Moss complaining about food or suggesting the coach should be fired.

People complain about Moss, is he the only person in this world who is allowed to be criticized? If a guy can't cook and you're having to eat the crap he should complain. Also I never liked Childress as a coach and it's blatantly obvious that team is underachieving. They have way too much talent.

People are too used to denying the truth and pretending nothing is wrong. Moss is coming from a top organization and he's pointing it obvious flaws.

Smith has bullied people left and right for years and gotten away with it because he scores touchdowns. If he played for the Falcons you'd all hate his guts. The reporter was just doing his job. Just like the intern. Just like so many other people who have had to deal with Smith's mood swings. If those were the only three incidents in Smith's career, yeah, that's not much. But it's pretty much non stop from him and has been since his rookie year. Some other people on this board have talked about run ins and personal experiences they have had.

Moss is a malcontent. I heard Cris Carter talking about him on radio yesterday. Carter is probably Moss' biggest fan in the media, and even he said the catering thing was inexcusable. Especially at 33 years of age.

Smitty came into a sports bar I was at and was an absolute dick to every person in there. He did not acknowledge a soul; didn't respond to any greetings. For a guy who's the "face of the franchise," he does a horrendous job of setting a good example.

I love me some Smitty because of the way he performs on the field. I leave it to the Panthers to decide if he continues to be there. As long as he is, I'll enjoy the passion he brings on Sundays and his willingness to risk everything.



Damn, wish I was watching Smitty play right now.

Wouldn't it be much easier for that reporter to get in contact with the player before hand and talk to him somewhere other than were he is getting dressed ?


Meat is hater



MOOOOHAHAHAHA!

Other teammates were fine with the food and told Moss to STFU.

Moss put a high school classmate in the hospital by beating and kicking him while two buddies held him down. Nothing happened to him because the athletic program protected him.

This is the kind of thing that I absolutely hate about our society today, that we put more of a premium on someone's talent than we do their character.

Being a good football player shouldn't give anyone free pass to be a dick and not suffer consequences.

Thank you, Mr. Scot. At least someone understands.

How do you feel about Rae Carruth? At what point does the person behind the athlete matter?

I wanted my Rams to sign Moss until I heard about the catering thing. Then I was dead set against it. I had Moss pegged as just a guy who wanted to win more than he wanted to be a great teammate. But he's worse than that, much worse as Mr. Scot pointed out.

The Rams are building the right way. No Leonard Littles this time. If that means losing games that two Randy Moss plays would have won (like at Tampa Bay), then so be it.
