Randy Moss Enjoyed Richard Sherman’s Tirade


There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who were outraged by Richard Sherman’s post-game tirade Sunday night and those who found it refreshingly honest and even entertaining.

Count Randy Moss as a member of the latter camp.

Randy was himself known for unleashing some arguably questionable on-field antics in his playing days. He famously left the field prematurely late in a game against the Washington Redskins, garnering plenty of criticism. And another time he squirted an official with a water bottle.

He also had some notable encounters with members of the media.

Probably his greatest moment in front of a microphone was his bizarre impromptu presser after the Vikings-Patriots game in 2010 when he took to the podium to praise his former coach Bill Belichick and, by implication, diss the crap out of Vikings coach Brad Childress.

Not surprisingly, Moss was cut shortly after that particular appearance.

So yeah, not a surprise that Moss is in Sherman’s corner.

    This article strikes me as a bit of an insult to Sherman. It is indeed no surprise that Moss had no problem. A worthy story would have been if Moss had disagreed.
    Point is, they are polar opposites in regard to leadership and hustle. I´m not saying that you were trying to suggest otherwise, but it does end up looking that way.
