Since we’ve already devoted plenty of space today to the latest chapter in the soap opera that has become the life and times of Randy Moss, here’s another one.
As we explained earlier today, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports reported that Moss acted like the part of the horse onto which a saddle isn’t placed when a catered meal was made available to the players after Friday’s practice. The owner of the restaurant that provided the food, Gus Tinucci, has corroborated the account, both to the St. Paul Pioneer Press and on ESPN.
“That player was pretty well right on with what he said,” Tinucci told Robert Flores.
Tinucci also has shared a tidbit that sheds the first light on the possible reaction of quarterback Brett Favre to the release of Moss.
“If Favre would have had a ball, he would have beaned him right
in the head. Favre looked at him like, ‘Are you kidding me?'” Tinucci
told the Pioneer Press.
We’ll find out more regarding Favre’s reaction to the decision to cut Moss when the quarterback meets with the media on Wednesday. And Favre can go a long way toward burying the hatchet with coach Brad Childress by providing a candid assessment of Randy’s antics on and off the field — and by explaining that no team can be successful with a guy like that around.
