    Good things about Randy

    Here is an article on the good things that Randy does for his hometown community. These are the types of things you don't hear to often about, which is to bad!

    Good things about Randy

    It's good to see this article on ESPN, instead of just a local newspaper. More people will see it, and start to realize that Randy isn't the same person he was a few years ago.


    Oh, TNT, your signature looked so good, it inspired me to create one of my own.

    I read that same article on a Packer website 3 days ago. Good for Randy. I'm glad he's kind to children.

    Rebuttal

    By Len Pasquarelli
    ESPN.com
    Let's say, for the sake of creating a hypothetical, that you are dating a supermodel. A lady so drop-dead gorgeous, so comely in countenance and curves, most men's eyes fall out when she strolls by. A woman with whom you could see yourself spending the rest of your life.


    Until, that is, you take her home to meet the parents.


    And then, over dinner, she cuts loose with a string of language so blue, you check to see if she has sailor's tattoos down both arms. She criticizes mom's trademark pot roast and wonders aloud why dad chose such a lousy wine. To top off the evening, she belches as dessert is served, then spills her coffee on the heirloom tablecloth handed down by your ancestors for generations.


    So now the conundrum: Do you ignore her social ineptitude and, smitten by her beauty, slip a ring on her finger? Or do you throw her phone number in the trash, run the other way as quickly as possible, and by hypnosis have her purged from your memory banks?


    Essentially that is the question confronting the Vikings who, in the case of wide receiver Randy Moss, have discovered again that beauty found is sometimes beauty flawed.



    Moss is a social cripple, as his well-documented behavior has demonstrated on too many occasions, but that is no excuse to provide him any more crutches. The most notable of team efforts, football still has had plenty of room for nonconformists, but Moss isn't just a colorful maverick who refuses to subjugate his persona to the common good.


    Instead he is selfish and self-serving -- a man who regards himself above the team and, apparently now, above the law as well. It's chic to suggest some players are still kids trying to play a man's game. But there is a basic disparity between childlike and childish. Moss is childish and churlish, the incessant burr under the saddle, the genius talent with a wart.


    Certainly there would be a huge financial price to pay for jettisoning Moss at this point. By our count, the Vikings would have to count roughly $2.8 million in signing bonuses against their 2002 salary cap even if Moss were dumped. The impact in 2003 would be a whopping $13.4 million, or nearly 20 percent of the salary cap, if Moss is excised.


    But you don't rid cancer with a band-aid. You swallow hard and excise the tumor, make the tough call and move on.


    If the Vikes are unable to compete financially until they get a new stadium, as the team contends, why would the state legislature direct funds to a club that cannot curb the foolishness of its players? There has been, for many years now, an NFL mindset which holds that the only thing that matters is what a player does on Sunday afternoons.


    But in the real world, people who go to church every Sunday are still held accountable for what they do on Monday, or every other day of the week. In an era when players are more closely scrutinized, when the television camera captures and disseminates every one of Moss' sideline rants, player responsibility extends beyond the white lines.



    Since it's obvious that Moss cannot abide his celebrity status, and probably would be every bit as callous were he just some working stiff with a chip on his shoulder, it's time for the Vikings to do what he will not. Take some responsibility. As painful as the ramifications will be, it's time for the Vikings to cut Randy Moss free.
