Just watched primetime. They spent twice as much time talking about Moss and whether or not Favres career is done as they did talking about the actual game. What a freakin joke!

I don't condone what Moss did, but gimme a break! Everyone is carrying on as though he actually dropped his pants and mooned the crowd. Moss is no worse than anyone else in the NFL. How many balls has he given to kids in wheelchairs this year and we don't hear a thing about that, but he does one admittedly infantile touchdown celebration and everyone's ready to crucify him.

Roadrunner, I'll admit, when Moss hands the ball off to a fan I appreciate that. The thing to ask ones self is, why does Moss's negative antics appear over everything else the team does? I mean, Culpepper has the best season as a Vikings QB, and if it were not for a player by the last name of Manning, Pepper would be MVP. Yet here we are talking about Moss's antics.

I have fun with my kids doing the Pepper 'get your roll on'... I'd never say 'Hey! lets do the moss moon!'.

I guess it's all a matter of taste.

Again, I'm not saying I condone it, but if they are going to come down on Moss for this particular incident then the league needs to start cracking down on on-field celebrations in general. The "Moss moon" didn't do anything to help anyones perception of Moss's intelligence, but I think the guys who celebrate after every routine tackle or catch look just as ridiculous as Moss did today. I also think Fox Sports and ESPN went out of their way to dwell on it after the game as well. Of course Moss's interview earlier today on ESPN didn't do much for his cause either mad.gif

I just think moss has a sense of humor. When he did the fake mooning. I started LOL. The whole room bursted out laughing. The general public and football fans and commentators every just overanalyze what he does. He is the best natural athlete/football player on the field at any given time.

I'm still laughing about it! Moss owns the Pack and their cheesehead fans and he knows it. He gets their goats and loves to rub it in their faces.

NOW THEY HAVE A WHOLE OFFSEASON TO BE WHINING SINCE WE ENDED THEIR SEASON TODAY!!!!!!!!! smirk.gif

Most celebrations are just that--a celebration. Moss's intent was clearly to incite and insult the fans at the game. I would have to believe that if this isn't over it, it's pretty close to the league's line regarding conduct.

Was I offended by his display and now I'm going to stop watching football? No.

Do I think it makes Moss look like a bonehead? Do I think it takes attention from the accomplishments of the rest of the team? Does it send kids the wrong message? Does it send the message to other teams and the fans that Tice doesn't have control of his team?

Yes, yes, yes, & yes.

I guess nobody here really mooned anybody when they we're in High School. I did. I think it was great. Trade Moss and everyone would start saying what a mistake.

Go Superfreak

I saw the Moss mooning in my local Legion club. The place went nuts, and I got a good laugh, initially.

Randy's problem seems to be that he can't stop thinking about himself, or think further than 5 minutes down the road, let alone seasons to be played in the future.

While I am glad the vikes won, it is antics like this that could possibly harm the team in the future. Remember when he squirted the official in that Rams game a few years back? He did not get any gimme calls for a while after that one.

I can't believe people are making such a big deal about this. The fans taunted him all game, a little payback in a fun way never hurt anyone. He could have done a lot worse. I mean, it's not like he pulled a Janet Jackson or something. I think the media, especially the Fox show guys, got on him hard becuse Randy ripped them for saying what they said about his previous game antics. Besides, they are all looking for ANYTHING to rip him on. Get over it.

I totally agree Tom. Those Pack fans rode him constantly and then they say he had no class for reacting??? It was all in fun and its not like he actually dropped his pants. Good grief some people need to lighten up!!!

WalleyeDan came up with a good one, "Randy Moon". I like that. It fits him so well.

It's funny, I turned my head to play with our puppy in celebration after Moss's touchdown. I hear Collinsworth then say that he did a disgusting act to the crowd. I was thinking "oh crap, what'd he do, give them the bird, or yell obscenities?" I then saw what he did on the replay. This is going to get just as blown out of proportion as walking off the field with 2 seconds left. Go ahead, make him mad, see what happens. You know that Packer fans taunt him from the stands, (even though that is no excuse for rude acts) I found the act quite harmless.

Also, Trade Randy? To who? You can't trade him to anyone in the NFC, that would be death. I like him just the way he is, arrogant, self centered, and probably the best receiver in the NFL. Don't forget we are talking about an organization who gave the Vikings a big slap in the face last year for parading around the Arizona reciever. I didn't exactly see any class in that. We certainly didn't hold a parade for the Saints.

Mosses shenanigans were in no worse taste than the spoof ESPN did about Favre running around naked all the time during the winter to prepare himself for playing in the cold weather (a piece I thought was funny). It was a little hypocritical of them to show that piece and then blast Moss for his actions. If anybody else but Moss did what he did, it would not have garnered this much attention.

People are getting WAY too wrapped up in his celebration! Did we forget this is just a game, not just business?

If a group of guys are out playing street ball and a player moons the others, everyone would laugh and it would be done. Here in the NFL you cannot express yourself in fears of tarnishing the great "name" of the game. If a GB player had mooned the dome crowd, I wouldn't take offense in the least bit. IT'S A GAME!!

Might as well call it the "Non Fun League". That's the way it's heading.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.
    • Muskies
      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
