The "bling incident" is when Daunte was at the Superbowl or Pro bowl and doing an outing/autograph signing and he was having his picture taken with a handicap kid in a wheelchair. The kid asked if he could wear Daunte's "pepper" bling for the picture. Daunte let him, but the kid thought he gave it to him, and the media blew it all out of context when Daunte took it back. That's the story in a nutshell. Correct me if I'm wrong guys!

yeah thats right, it wasn't really an 'incident' it was a misunderstanding with a lot of reporters around.

Yeah, the media thought Daunte was being a jerk and taking his stuff away from a dying kid, while they had it worked out tht Daunte would just loan the kid the "bling" for the picture because it would be cool. The media tried to make Cully look like a jerk, which they ultimately failed with.

Matt Birk was pissed at Moss and told him about it when he walked off with 2 seconds left. Moss just said whatever to him.

Well I'm just saying that's when I heard that Birk was pissed. I heard nothing to tell me he was pissed at Daunte.

Haha! From what I heard on ESPN or some magazine, Culpepper gave the "bling" to the kid since he was dying, and a couple of days later went back to his home and took it back because it was too expensive or something like that.

Haha, thanks for the REAL story.

I would add Birk's needs to stop holding or at least stop getting caught.
