Yes, why didn't the other teammates smack him up the side of the head? Shame on all of them. Moss did not want to be there once he realized what a mess the viking organization really is. Including Brett Favre.

Why does Moss need to be controlled? As long as he draws double teams, and still makes touchdown catches, what is the problem? He's a grown man and can act however he wants so long as he doesn't wind up in jail.

Moss will be the Vikings MVP this year if Klink gets axed!

Fisher, has already dealt with headcases, and never had any big problems. Don't forget this team use to have Haynesworth, and Adam Pacman Jones. These guys are about par with Moss, heck Moss looks like a choir boy compared to Jones.

At least one player told him to STFU, wonder who that was?

New England is looking like the smart ones here, Tennessee is just begining to feel the pain.

How about klink with a new piece of horse tail on his head Sunday afternoon? That should liven things up a bit.

Won't last long with Titans? Wanna bet? The problem, moron writer, is Childress, but I guess expecting you to *GET* that is unreasonable.

Some coaches have enough strength in character to deal with head cases and some don't. Phil Jackson has dealt with two of the biggest in Dennis Rodman and Ron Artest. But Childress is certainly not strong enough and does not have the confidence of his players or his QB. Moss is a great WR, but this was inevitable.

I like your point. Bottom line is to coach at this level and deal with all the egos and testosterone a coach has to have "thick skin", certainly thicker than Childress'.

His reaction was extreme at a critical time for this team' cohesion, I am sure there were other ways to handle this. Not to mention other actions disciplinary wise he could/should have taken.

He also didn't do himself any favors in the approval ratings department or for his future job security.

He needed to discuss this move with the VP's before he made this solo decision.

Only one person in the llocker room told him to be quite about the food, This team lacks leaders who will hold other accountable. Thus ther 2-5 record. Too many fantasy players looking at thier stats and not enough grind in out guys. Time to blow up this team next year and start over. Getting tired of the over paid underachievers.

Moss is fine when the team he is playing on is winning. That's why you and everyone else was wrong about the impact Moss would have on the Vikings, and that's why Chilly should be fired for trading for Moss in the first place, and wasting a 3rd round pick. Chilly is the wrong coach for a player like Moss.

Randy set this whole thing up. The buffet incident was staged by him so that he would most definitely be released as he didn't want to play for Childress. He wanted to play in Minnesota, but not for Childress. You can tell by the things that were said. Moss told the Vikings brass that Childress should be fired. Now if you think that Moss is the only one who thinks that Childress has to go, then you are sadly mistaken. And I am talking about players and coaches.

Any evidence besides the keyboard to back this up? It would be interesting if Ziggy won't listen to anyone but Childress. Crazy would be a better term.
Me thinks you concocted this in your melon, please prove me wrong.
