Randy Moss was released by the Minnesota Vikings after being signed less than a month ago. According to Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports, Moss’ behavior was a factor in the decision to place the future Hall of Famer on waivers. Silver reported that Moss threw a temper tantrum about the food that was served to him after the Vikings’ practice on Friday. Tinucci’s Restaurant of St. Paul was serving the Viking players lunch when Moss said, “What the [expletive]? Who ordered this crap? I wouldn’t feed this to my dog!”
Restaurant owner Gus Tinucci said two Vikings employees later apologized for Moss’ remarks and that it wasn’t out of the ordinary for Moss to say that.
Tinucci told USA Today a member of the Vikings’ staff said: “Don’t worry about it, Gus, he’s an (expletive). He’s done this every time we’ve had food.”
One person who did not think it was a laughing matter was quarterback Brett Favre: “If (Brett) Favre would have had a ball, he would have beaned him right in the head,” Tinucci said. “Favre looked at him like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ “
Tinucci does not expect Moss’ remarks to interfere with him being invited back again to cater the Vikings’ practices, as he has already done it on more than one occasion.
As for Moss, he will test his luck on waivers.
