      83

With the recent flap over Moss, I wonder which action you think is worse. All three have happened if not very recently.

To me it looked like he was imitating taking a sh|t--which would get my vote for the worst.

Since he "wiped" on the goal post, I would have to agree.

I think flipping off the stands... especially when they are YOUR fans back there is the most classless thing.

 

I'm ready to see Jake go. I hear Jeff George may be available, and unfortunately it would be an improvement.

 

I'm really tired of him putting up great numbers in a losing effort.

Anything involving the ejection of bodily fluids into the stands is clearly worse than a faux mooning. Especially given the apparent fact that Randy's move was a take-off on Packer fans' practice of mooning the opposing team's bus.

 

Randy is immature & apparently desires a great deal of attention (mission accomplished). I am a big Joe Buck fan, but I think his over-reaction on the telecast has led to this being made out to be a much bigger deal than it really is.

Wow, with all of this fresh on everyones mind and all of the complaining, I am very surprised to see that after 14 votes, the pretend moon has gotten 0 votes! :bigshock:

I think there is a big difference in these examples. Two are done in anger. One is done in having fun. The art of mooning has been going on for decades. Why? IMO...in the quest to have some fun. Unless somewhere along the way it's developed into some kind of significant gang signing that I'm not aware of. :D

 

Childish, immature? That's kind of obvious. But again, apparently there are plenty of Packer fans that for some time now have enjoyed having their little fun. That's all this was, an opponent, a very familiar opponent, returning the fun. I'm betting there's a group of cheeseheads out there that are just rolling with laughter that Moss mooned them back.

I'd have to agree with Billy...it was immature but nothing worse, and really do you NOT expect Moss to be immature? I'd be much more upset if I were spit on or at, and I think even flipping someone off is a little worse. Had he actually dropped his pants and mooned the crowd, that might be another story, but simply imitating it wasn't really that big a deal in the grand scope of things.

I saw it happen and I saw it repeated later. He didn't bend his knees and rub his butt up and down. He mostly just bumped it twice with his right butt cheek and then started towards the bench. While I am sensitive and all, I just didn't see quite the horrific action that evidently most people saw. He had been taunted the whole game by the stands, it was probably milder than what I'd do if people treated me that way.

Just wait until all the teams put seats down on the field like Minnesota does.

A lot of those seats are for kids and adults that are handicap. During the home games Randy will either jump into the stands, or walk the ball over and give it to a kid in a wheelchairs. I think that is fantastic.

Spitting is definately the lowest.

I have to agree. As I said in another post, I didn't see the moon yesterday, and just heard the reaction of some of the media. After listening to all the outcry yesterday, when I finally saw the highlight, I was half expecting him to drop his pants and take a dump in the end zone.

I think running into the stands and beating the crap out of much smaller people than you is the worst player action, but the Indiana Pacers weren't one of the options. I'm sure Captain Hook agrees with me... :D

That would be bad! But that's not what Artest did. :D

Simply pretending to moon is not a big deal to me, what set me off was that he rubbed up against the goal post. But, when I finally saw the replay, I will admit that I thought it was a bit anticlimactic. I have no idea what he was doing on the goal post other than bumping it. :D

 

The most classless thing is not listed here, that was when the RB took the pitch-out, got into the secondary, pulled a gun and shot the the last two defenders that could stop him and gets in the end zone...oh wait...sorry, that was a movie. :D

As a doctor, spitting obviously got my vote. No spectator should ever have to dodge a player's saliva.

When watching a replay of it for the first time tonight it seems a whole lot less offensive (and quite a bit funnier) than what I thought I saw yesterday.

I didn't see the Moss moon ... but I would rank it 3rd out of those listed ... not sure how I would rank the other 2 ...

If Moss was pretending to take a dump and wipe on the goal post, it was the worst display of pantomime since mummenschanz.

 

Assuming Moss was pretending to moon the fans, his display doesn't come close to the other two. I actually laughed at it. It was funny. I just don't understand why some people have gotten so upset by it. Mooning itself ain't no thing and Moss pretended to moon.

I don't remember...was that a Last Boyscout reference? If so, very good! :D

 

The spitting would bother me the most, by far. The other things are gestures in poor taste but spitting is confrontational. Whether it's Steve Lyons pulling his pants down accidentally or Randy Moss pretend-mooning people intentionally, those are just acts of stupidity.

 

Giving somebody or a bunch of people the finger just seems like an act of immature frustration, as if to admit that you let the fans get the better of you.
