    that would explain why Oakland didn't use vaseline after bending us over in the Moss trade.

    Re: The real reason behind Moss' trade

    So I'm at the draft party chatting with a guy who sits in my section at the Metrodome. You all know him as the guy Moss jumped to in the stands after scoring a touchdown (remember the infamous "big old arms" comment by Madden). His name is Sid and I've chatted with him dozens of times at the games/tailgating/etc.

    Anyway, after Moss is traded, he got a phone call from the Vikes saying that Moss' agent wanted to talk to him and gave him the agent's phone number. Sid calls up his agent and DiTrapano (spelling?) tells him that Moss wants to talk to him. So he gets Sid's number and Moss calls Sid. Anyway, Moss wanted some of the real Vikings fans to know what really went down, so he called Sid knowing that he would tell all the good folks in section 100 what went down.

    Moss told him that in mid-February, Moss met with McCombs. McCombs starts railing on how the Vikes performed at the end of the last couple seasons and rips on Moss and Daunte. This goes on for awhile and finally Moss stands up and starts yelling at McCombs -- called him a "cheap bastard" for having $30 million in salary cap space and using so little of it to improve the team. Moss told McCombs that if he wanted to win nearly as bad as Moss and Daunte that he'd go out and try to improve the team instead of just crossing his fingers that the offense can score 40 points a game. After the cheap bastard comment, Moss just walked out.

    About a week after the meeting, Moss' agent finds out that the Vikes have actively begun to shop him around to other teams and within a couple days the Vikes agreed with Oakland. McCombs didn't contact Moss after the fateful meeting and began making calls to other owners on his own without going through the front office.

    That would explain why just a week before he was traded, the front office and Fowler all said Moss would not be traded.

    Moss said that Tice, Daunte, Bryzenski, etc. all disclosed their displeasure with the deal to him, but that their hands were tied because McCombs made the call and couldn't be talked out of it.


    Anyway, thought you guys would want to know what I heard. Take it for what it is worth, but I trust the guy. He's met Moss a bunch of times and is a good guy.

    Makes me even more pissed that we don't have him on our team still. At least in my mind, it is just one more shitty thing McCombs pulled on this team. He's leaving quite a legacy.

    --------------------------------------

    I know this to be true. It doesn't make Moss 'walking off the field' or anything like that right, but I believe this to be true. And it's a shame.
