Sports is such a polarizing world. In New England, Pats fans are supporting Randy Moss unquestionably. He’s one of our guys, and he’s being set up like a mo-fo by a gold-digger.
Outside of New England, No. 81 is being characterized as a punk. His resume of mistakes is being thrown around and he’s now the top bad buy on Team Evil.
Of course, it really isn’t that simple. I don’t know if Randy Moss hit Rachelle Washington. I don’t know if he somehow kept her from getting medical attention. Really, no one but the parties involved know what happened. No real details have been released. All we know is that Moss is alleged to have been involved in some sort of domestic dispute. Other than that, I can tell you he had over 1,400 yards and 23 touchdowns this year.
At the end of the day, that’s all that really matters to me, his performance on the field. I don’t like to root for “bad guys” or “punks.” I don’t think anyone does. But, I don’t know if Randy Moss did these things. If we ever really know, it won’t be for months and months.
What I do know is that the timing of this is a very convenient. I would not be blown away to find out that a woman saw a chance to get a pay day from her rich acquaintance via extortion. It sounds like a bad episode of Law and Order, but in this day and age it is quite possible.
Moss said it himself in the past: “Straight cash homey.” That’s what many many Americans are about, getting theirs.
