Randy Moss: “I’m not coming here to start no trouble”

After a dramatic week in the NFL, Randy Moss’ first meeting with the media in Tennessee almost slipped under the radar.

Moss didn’t ask and answer his own questions, but we still got some typically classic moments.

“I’m going to give y’all maybe two, not more than three questions, but I just want to start off and let my family know, my momma, my brother, my sister your baby brother, your baby boy is good,” Moss said via Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean.  “I’ve been through alot in the last couple of weeks.  Like I said, I’ve got these broad shoulders; I can carry a lot of weight.”

Now that’s an introduction.

Moss said that he won’t turn the Titans into a Super Bowl team on his own, and that he’s just focused on one day at a time and learning the plays.  Here’s our favorite exchange of the session:

Reporter: What can the Titans expect from you on a snap-to-snap basis?

Moss: What do you expect from me effort wise?

Reporter: Well other people . . .

Moss: I didn’t say other people, what do you expect from me effort wise?

Reporter: I don’t know what to expect.

Moss: I don’t know what to expect neither, next question.

Moss is predictably unpredictable, even to himself.  He continues to say that the NFL is a business.  Surely he’s a smart enough businessman to know he needs to make this chance work or his free agency value will sink this offseason.

“I didn’t want to go to Minnesota and mess anything up.  I guess everybody blamed me for it,” Moss said.   “I’m going to say it again; I’m not coming here to start no trouble.”

  1. Great use of the double negative Randy, Your right you are not going to start NO trouble. Maybe you should have had some humble pie from mom and pop shop back in minnesota.

  2. Randy Moss: “I’m not coming here to start no trouble”
    ———
    Thats a double negative randy pants! It means you ARE! Well at least you gave Buffalo fair warning.

  3. This assclown really has a grasp on the english language, grammar, etc. This is what 4- years of college gets you. DOLT!

  4. The guy can’t even say he’ll give full effort on every play? Wow. Randy, you’re quite a piece of work.

  5. Very similar to his quote at Marshall University “I’m not coming here to start no learning”. Congrats Titans.

  6. Not there to start trouble……that is why he tried to martyr himself and held a 184 second press conference……
    dumba$$

  7. Just a prima donna dirtbag that doesn’t really deserve another shot.
    The thing that surprises me the least on this planet is that Randy Moss hasn’t won a Super Bowl.

  8. You should probably go there to learn how to use the english language…have a little pride in yourself for F sake…

  9. the better the opposing cornerback the less the effort, he’s too old and tired to make effort excepting against the shorter slower corners…
    avoided him like the plague in fantasy leagues

  10. “…. I’m not coming here to start no trouble.”
    Instant Classic. Go Randy, straight cash homeboy. Proof that money can’t buy class.

  11. so is he saying he HAS started trouble at his other stops along the way?
    you would think that a dude that has made millions would have the pride to actually learn the english language and at least try and sound like he’s made it out of the hood.
    he’s a turd!

  12. While I REALLY don’t think much of Mr. Moss, I believe he does have a valid point about starting trouble in Minnesota, the trouble was all ready brewing quite well the way they started we knew Minnesota didn’t think highly of the coach after Favre came back and comments about respect were made.
    Moss was just the accelerator in that whole soap opera.

  13. “He continues to say that the NFL is a business. Surely he’s a smart enough businessman to know he needs to make this chance work or his free agency value will sink this offseason.”
    When was the last time you think Randy Moss made decisions based on his perceived free agent value anyway?

  14. “I’m going to say it again; I’m not coming here to start no trouble.”
    ___________________________________
    And you wonder why America is “dumbed down” to the lowest common denominator.
    How did he ever get through grades 1-8, not to mention high school and college?
    Oh wait…

  15. Moss: I didn’t say other people, what do you expect from me effort wise?
    Reporter: Not much, actually. Not much. I would say for you to prove me wrong, but of course, you won’t.

  16. To all of the Moss haters…he is still a millionaire many times over. Has probably dated hot chicks for the past 15 years, and will go into the Hall of Fame.
    All in all, his life is better than yours.

  17. He didn’t come to make no trouble, trouble just kind of happens when Moss is around. It’s a property, like stink on s***.

  18. Moss said. “I’m going to say it again; I’m not coming here to start no trouble.”
    I’m just here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle
    is the missing next lyric here…
    hey, could happen I guess, titans are in 1st place before Moss, but probably not, still would have been funny to hear

  19. Randy Moss: “I’m not coming here to start no trouble”
    Not to nitpick or be a grammar fascist, but shouldn’t that be, “I ain’t coming here to start no trouble?”
    On an unrelated note, I sincerely hope that the Titans’ caterer is Brock Lesnar.

  20. You foolz need to respect Mr. Moss. He’s the 3rd best WR in hiztory (behind Rice and Biletnikov)
    RESPECT 81

  21. I think he is trying to become the first person to play every team in the league in one year..well, close to it.

  22. Everybody blasting him (with good reason) for butchering the English language should understand one thing…next to his teammate Chris Johnson, Randy Moss sounds like a Rhodes scholar

  23. Moss: “What do you expect from me effort wise?”
    I expect you to jog your routes and otherwise drift through every game as if you were doing the Titans a favor just by showing up for the game.
    That reporter doesn’t have any balls.

    Fixed –
    Randy Moss: “I’m not coming here to start no trouble, not right now at least.”
    I’m not coming here to start ANY trouble”
    Not that I give a shit how anyone else speaks

  25. @buckofama,
    Douche bags who expect elocution lessons from professional athletes (basketball players, football players, baseball players, NASCAR drivers) should have their heads shoved right back up their asses.
    Btw, its “you’re,” genius.

  26. okay, so we’re going to bash him b/c of his double negatives? like every other NFL’er doesn’t speak exactly the same way, if you can understand them at all? please, give the man a chance, he hasn’t even played one game for TN yet. Then you can pick all you want.

  27. “He continues to say that the NFL is a business.”
    And Rosie being the contrarian, disagrees?

  28. Everything Moss has tried to do, namely secure himself a long term contract, has had the opposite effect. It could not have gone worse for him. As a poster said, he is control of what he does. Just not doing a bang up job, are you Randy?
    Shut the pie hole, go out and play like the next play is your last, prove you DESERVE a contract from ANY team next year. To do anything less is to self destruct your career, if that hasn’t already happened.

  29. It is a shame that so much talent is controlled by that mind. If he had given full effort on every play, he could have been the best ever.

    Criticizing his bad english pretty much means you guys are out of ideas. Everybody speaks bad english.
    _____________________________________
    This one is too easy. Anyone else wish to take a shot at this one?
    I rest my case. (shaking head slowly, wondering where the country went and knowing where it is headed)

  31. I’m not coming here to start no trouble.
    His double negative translates to:
    I’m coming to start trouble.
    Freudian thing?

  32. Hey might sound like a Rhodes Scholar next to Chris,but at least CJ isn’t a TOTAL ASSHOLE. F@#$ Rihanna Moss and her Jake ass yellow play: spin it, “One Clap” it all you want Randy, EVERYONE sees through you, BITCH.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Lots of people have better lives than mine is, but that doesn’t make them a better person overall. Rush Limbaugh is a perfect example……

  34. come on guys, double negatives are acceptable! you’re going back to 85 just to prove it!
    And I don’t wanna hear no back talk!

  35. Wow the grammar Nazi’s are out in force today.
    Oh boo hoo a football player didn’t use perfect English.
    What a bunch of bimbos.
    Not that Moss is easy to defend, but surely you guys can come up with something better than that LOL

  36. I know everyone loves to hate Randy Moss, but honestly, Childress ****ed everything up in Minnesota, not Moss.

  37. I know that he slacks on 20% of plays. I know he comes off as a prima donna (sp?). I know he can be immature at best and outright defiant at worst, but I still like the guy. He’s fun! He makes this league interesting, and dude can ball when he wants to. I just hope he wants to give the effort the rest of the season (excluding the KC game). I love to watch the circus catches.

  38. @buckofama,
    The mentally challenged who expect elocution lessons from professional athletes (basketball players, football players, baseball players, NASCAR drivers) should have their heads shoved right back up their bums (is that better, Roseweed?).
    Btw, its “you’re,” genius.

    Hmmm… if you think that’s what it takes to make someone happy, you need to get out more.
    With his background, he’ll be broke 10 years after he retires from the NFL. To this point, he seems to think the world owes him something because he can catch a football (when he wants to). The world doesn’t owe him, his current team does. And when he no longer has a team who will pay him… no one will. He’s not that good at anything else. A shame, really. But inevitable for someone who thinks he’s entitled.

    Please send your thank you card to David Tyree for helping extend the statute of limitations on Moss slams like this.

  41. Hard to hate Moss. He makes the rules. I really can’t dislike a fisherman either, got bass game..

  42. @StarrToDowler,
    You post as if you’ve actually done some research on the business investments of Mr. Moss. Please, tell us everything you know about him. We’ll wait…

  43. Come on, Buckofama, if you’re gonna slam on Randy Moss for using the double negative (I was right on it myself), you should make sure to get your own grammar correct.
    I’m sure you meant to use “You’re” instead of “Your”. Just an observation. Otherwise, I agree with your post.
    “Great use of the double negative Randy, Your right you are not going to start NO trouble….”

  44. Classic scumbag from the hood that would be behind bars in between stints pumping gas if he couldn’t catch a football.
    What a looooser that hopefully no upcoming peewee, pop warner, or rec league football kids listen to!

  45. Dear Greggggg,
    Thanks for putting up my post! You guys are the bestest.
    And then you deleted my post after two minutes because somebody cried about it.
    I was just calling a spade a spade. But I see you all have become slaves to “Da Man”.
    Thanks Greggggggg!
    Wussy.

    Wow the grammar Nazi’s are out in force today.
    Poor use of apostrophe.
    The point is that Moss knows how to speak properly. I’ve heard him do it. He prefers playing the role of Joe Badass, something most guys outgrow coinciding with puberty.

  47. “Look, man, I ain’t fallin’ for no banana in my tailpipe!”
    I’m sorry … what were we talking about?

  48. Just give him time to realize that he’s not the center of attention in Nashville and he’ll return to being the same old Randy. Whining, giving 20% effort, and bad mouthing the owner, the coaches, the cheerleaders and Opryland. He’s a punk and always will be a punk.
    @Tweedledum – very good analogy. Limbaugh is a douche and @Hogster is a jagoff.

  49. I’m gonna give Randy the benefit of the doubt and assume he meant to use a triple negative, rather than a double negative.
    Randy’s just that far ahead of all of us.

  50. Spits laughing. Moss has this sentence down pat as each team that picks him up he says the same thing. Excellent english Randy, nice college that graduated you. Your a cancer on any team you play. I bet they even taught you that you spell team with an I, because that’s how you think. If it wasn’t for Chris Carter showing you how to play football you’d be on the street. Your nothing but a thug.

  51. Straight bad grammer, Homey…glad you are gone from Minnesota. Titans, good luck. On the surface it all look good Homeys…Wait till you lose a game or two, the true Randy will surface for Tennessee…

  52. I am willing to wager that everyone that is commenting about double negatives makes less than 500k a yr.. so really .. So.. in the grand scheme of things… who’s the real idiot???

  53. Sure thing, Ray Guy. I’m studying for my master’s currently and I don’t always speak proper english when in an informal mode of communication. What’s the point? Your favorite player will never get into the Hall of Fame now that Lechler has surpassed him. BTW, have you heard Darren McFadden talk? Or Rolando McClain? Pretty much every player from the south speaks some butchered form of english with a silly accent. How does this measure IQ? Common sense, learn it.

  54. Randy Moss: “I’m not coming here to start no trouble”
    =================================
    Did this idiot graduate from college? Does he understand that a double negative turns into a positive.
    His statement means that he is going there to start trouble.

  55. “Excellent english Randy, nice college that graduated you. Your a cancer on any team you play.”
    Excellent English, masterblaster78; “your” quite the grammarian.
    I would assume your college is on par with Randy’s, but then again, given the way that the majority of people type, I would assume that most are.
    I dropped out of college, by the way.

  56. The Hogster –
    Sorry man, none of that impresses me.
    I would be impressed if he showed any bit of humility, but that’s never going to happen. I bet life after football is going to be great for this prick.

  57. Who really cares about the double negative? While it is not proper english, it has become part of the way American English is spoken. You wouldn’t wan’t to type a double negative. However, he is speaking…not giving a book report.
    FYI, there are a bunch of goofy teethed Britts across the ocean that think us fat, stinking Americans speak bad english.

  58. Here’s a nugget! Had the Titans/Oilers drafted Moss instead of Kevin Dyson, would they have a Superbowl by now? Instead, fate has spun history in a new direction… On a crash course for a collision with destiny…with a new supporting cast. Vowing then to dominate the league, Moss still produces, while his draft counterpart is long gone. One has to ponder, had the seemingly right decision been made originally, would we see a less tempermental Moss…now? Who knows!?!? What we do know … is that Eddie, Wycheck nor Mcnair (RIP) won’t be walking thru the door. Oh, and Derek Mason. Instead, there’s C.J and Young, combined with a young team, veteran head coach, sprinkled with a riverboat gambler type of ownership. It’s sure to be a volatile mix.

  59. Hogster, shouldn’t you be rubbing it in our faces about how awesome McNabb is and how dumb it was of the Eagles to trade him to a division rival?
    I mean, wouldn’t that be a better way to spend your time?

  60. “I’m not coming here to start no trouble”
    ——————————————————
    You’re breathing, aren’t you?

  61. My only question for Randy Moss would be: “Don’t you think now that you really DID have a good thing in New England after all?”

  62. ” Well my name is Randy and I like to b*tch.
    My favorite move is the uniform switch.
    The coaches and the fans say to play each down.
    But if I don’t get paid .. hell I’m leavin’ town
    I didn’t come to start no trouble
    I just came to do the Randy Moss Shuffle
    Uh huh, Uh huh, Uh huh “

  63. *shaking head* Way too many people commenting on the double negative used. I’ve seen worse command of the English language used by the PFT hypocrite commentors. And more than one of you have called people out for it. Is this a sports website or a Rhoades scholar recruitment site?? Meh…
