    My apologies if this was already posted, I didn't see it.

    =============
    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Vikings have waived receiver Randy Moss.

    Linebacker Ben Leber says coach Brad Childress informed the team that Moss had been let go during a team meeting Monday afternoon.

    The NFL Network first reported the Vikings waived Moss, but team officials have not confirmed the news

    Moss had one catch for 8 yards in a loss to the Patriots, In Sunday night's postgame news conference, he expressed admiration for the Patriots and criticized Vikings coaching.

    Childress said earlier Monday that Moss was staying back in the Boston area after the game to spend time with family. Childress said he did not regret acquiring him "at the moment."

    Can certainly say I didn't see this coming. Does he go back to the Pats?

    What a disaster.

    I had a feeling he wasn't long for Minnesota when I saw his rant about asking himself questions from now on.

    Do guys like this not even realize what a caricature they become?

    They fire Moss only after three weeks, and it seems the only offense he committed was talking too much during a press conference. Yet, after it is revealed that their elderly quarterback sent lewd phone messages to a "reporter", they decide to hang onto Brett Favre.

    Seems to be somewhat of a disconnect.

    That team is far more dysfunctional than I think people really realized. We all saw the hints, but now we're learning.

    As I said on the other thread, Moss is an idiot, but Childress and the Vikings are worse.

    They gave up a significant pick on a guy who known for running his mouth and then they cut him loose after three weeks?

    Idiotic.

    What's so funny is that the reason Wilf was so willing to give Favre more money is because he thought that success this season would get him the stadium he's been craving, and to be fair, they do need one.

    Do you think the voters in that state would approve anything for that trainwreck of a team right now?

    They all do shit like Favre did. He just got called out.

    Moss, on the other hand, crossed a line.

    Honor among thieves, my friend. Every culture has its own system of omerta, and it may not make sense to us, but it makes sense to them.

    The Vikings had to do this. An NFL team can't allow a star player to be so selfish.

    Yet the Drama Queen, who in the long run will prove much more destructive to the long-term success of the franchise, remains.

    Will the Rev. Jackson be issuing a statement?
