One or more of the following quotes are grossly taken out of context for laughs. The true context can be found at the links included within the text. Except for the Brett Favre video. Its context is still a mystery.

Vilified. Bad-mouthed. Made to look like a big, fat jerk.
That's what happened in Randy Moss' second go-around with the Minnesota Vikings. But now, nearly a year later, former Vikings head coach Brad Childress is setting the record straight.
In November 2010 the Vikings released Moss. This, after he publicly crooned the Patriots -- his employers just weeks prior -- on the heels of a loss in New England. A report hit the interwebs. It wasn't his betrayal of Chilly that sent Moss packing, but an alleged tirade against catered food.
"What the expletive? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn't feed this to my dog!" Moss yelled after getting a whiff of the locker room grub, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Brett Favre -- yeah, the guy this guy's imitating -- even sprang to the heartbroken caterer's defense, turning his gaze to Moss: "Favre looked at him like, 'Are you kidding me?'"
Guess what, Brett? No. He wasn't kidding you. He was sick. Really, really sick.
"Moss walked in the locker room and vomited on it," Childress admitted in a recent interview with NFL.com.
So the man had a right to be upset with the spread; it made him puke. Funny, how Chilly never came to Moss' defense at the time. Perhaps non-disclosure justified to ownership his unilateral decision to release the nauseous receiver.
This begs the question, however: Getting fired for being sick? Wonder if that's addressed in the new CBA.
