That sucks that Moe couldn't officially announce his retirement from football before it got leaked out in court. I wish him all the best in the future. He was a basher for us, he always played his heart out for the Vikings.

oh my gosh, he touched a boob, how criminal

Wasn't he shooting craps with Daunte? lol This whole thing was crazy and Moe was a solid pro but injuries took a toll on his playing days.

Spare us the news reporters, this is just plain silliness. Way to slam the door on Moe's arse as he heads out of MN.

I liked Moe and it's too bad he got into trouble with the law at the end of his career, but he sure did give us some moments to cheer about. Three plays I'll remember, actually four:

1. The afroementioned TD on the lateral from Moss in 04 right before the half against the Broncos

2. The TD on the third play of the game against the packers at lamboo in the playoffs that lead to a huge win!

3. The TD he scored against the Lions a couple of years ago where he absolutely trucked the safety to get into the endzone

4. Lastly, the TD he scored in a similar fashion as #3 against the cheesedicks on the right side of the field in lamboo to tie the game up. Too bad we lost that game in the last seconds of the game even though we recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff return!

Mike Florio (http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm)

One day after the lawyer for former Vikings running back Moe Williams declared that "(o)nly an imbecile could lose this case (http://www.startribune.com/510/story/380282.html)." the lawyer proved himself worthy of that moniker after a jury found Williams guilty of disorderly conduct. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2415358)

Williams was cleared of two other misdemeanors -- indecent conduct and lewd or lascivious behavior. Though there are no reports regarding Williams' sentence, we suspect that he will serve little if any jail time, and that he will be placed on probation and required to perform community service.

The charges stemmed from the October 2005 Love Boat fiasco. Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie and cornerback Fred Smoot have not yet been tried. A judge recently dismissed misdemeanor charges against former Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper.

It has been reported that the prosecutor had not decided whether to re-file the charges against Culpepper. It's possible that the partial victory in the trial against Williams could be enough to prompt another run at the guy who was traded to Miami for a second-round pick in March.

During the trial, defense lawyer Joe Friedberg said that Williams, who played with both the Vikings and Ravens, has retired from the NFL. Based on Friedberg's skills in predicting the outcome of jury trials, don't be surprised if Williams signs with a new team tomorrow.

And I'll remember the pass he let bounce off his shoulder pads into the hands of the Buccaneers so we could lose the first game of the season in 2005.

Just heard the news on Sportscenter. At least he was man enough to stick around and take care of his buisness other than PEP.
