I've got nothing against Moss.. As long as he doesn't haul in 10 passes for 200 yards and 2 TD's if and when the Raiders ever play the Vikes, I don't mind.

He's an exciting player whose highlight reels elevate the profile of the league.

Its funny you brought this up, my friend yesterday asked me that question.At first I was quick to say "Yea I'm gonna boo" ...but I thought for a second about all the memories he left here, and I'm not gonna boo him.Infact I hope before he finishes his career, he resigns here.Even if he dosnt play.Moss is my generations Chris Carter.Years from now I'll be tellin some young punk on here all about the great 84.

I will certainly NOT be booing Moss. As stated previously, he's left us with so many great memories. People can argue about why he was traded, but he didn't want to leave. It's not like he demanded out of here. I hope he gets a standing ovation....unlikely yes.

I would be shocked if he wasn't given a very warm greeting, along with a smattering of boos from a few fans of course. The guy in no way deserves to be booed, except for the fact that he plays for the opposing team that is. He gave us some great years and never pulled the crap that daunte did, when the trade winds started swirling.

I bet he gets a lot more cheers then boos, at least I hope he does.

I think you're right. He was traded to the Raiders, which is an AFC team that we rarely see during the season. If he would have been traded to the Lions, Bears, or Peckers, that would be a different story; then I expect he'd be booed soundly every time he touched the ball. As it is, I think people will cheer for him when he arrives on the field.

Think of Johnny Damon in a Yankees uniform. Red Sox fans boo him every chance they get; do you think they would have the same reaction if the Oakland A's had signed him?

There is a difference between someone who is kicked out and someone who wants out. So I would cheer Moss onto the field in thanks for what he has done for the team in the past, but once the game is underway he is still the opposition.

I hope that people don't boo him. He deserves cheers for all the stuff he has done for the Viks. Good and Bad

i agree.
but you can be sure the vikings front office was never not going to let a division rival pick him up. no way no how.

Moss was the greatest WR the vikings EVER had.

07-31-2006, 10:20 PM
If it was Cullpepper I'd boo, but not Moss. I don't hold Moss at fault for leaving. I wouldn't be surpised if he was mostly cheers for him, but of course there will be a lot of boos.

vikesoto
07-31-2006, 10:22 PM
Why boo someone who was TRADED ....

It's not like he left via free agency...

And for the record, in his press conf. in Oakland, he DIDN'T say a negative word about Minnesota. Moss said he had MUCH LOVE for Minnesota and had expected to be in Vikings purple his whole career and you boo bird idiots need to remember that...

triedandtruevikesfan
07-31-2006, 10:25 PM
I'm sure there will be a few jack asses that will boo, but for the most part I'm sure he'll receive lots of cheers. Moss didn't want to leave, and most were sad to see him go. He gave us tons of great memories and I hope that the fans remember that when he steps on the field.

When Moss is introduced at the dome, I will stand up and cheer as loud as I can, hopefully with 60,000+ other fans. IMHO Moss deserves that.

However... I will cheer just as hard everytime our secondary keeps the ball out of his hands. I love Moss, but I love the Vikings more! :grin: I definately do not want to see Moss get a TD in the dome ever again (unless, through some "freak" occurance, he ends up wearing purple and gold again...)

Yeah, that would be the only time we as Vikings fans should boo Moss, if he scored a TD on us, but we all know he aint gonna score on our D.

07-31-2006, 10:41 PM
what if we are playing moss when he needs to score a record breaking TD? say like in 5 years he needs a TD to get TD 200 or something like that...
do we cheer if he does it? well if we were winning like 34-7 i guess i would cheer...

Randy deserves a 2 minute ovation for the thrills he brought to Vikes fans, and I hope the crowd respects that and gives it to him. Half of them probably still have a #84 jersey hanging in their closets. That being said, it is the first preseason game and Randy will probably only be on the field for 2 minutes of action. If it wasn't Martin Lawrence look-alike Aaron Brooks at QB for the Raiders Randy might even be able to burn us for a first quarter score.

Lets just hope he doesn't hit any cops when he is leaving town.

IAVIKEGAL

i hope moss catches the long ball for a touch down and jumps up in the arms of the big viking dude like old times and everyone cheers. then they take him out and we stomp them like 34 to 7. guarante mosses warm welcome home will be all over sportscenter. that would be cool.

Why would people boo Moss? Its not his fault he was traded. He wanted to remain a Viking. It was Reds deal plain and simple. Moss didn't ask to be traded. All he did was tell Red he was a Cheap A$$ owner and thats why the team wasn't making it to the Super Bowl. He got traded for telling the truth about the team. People should give him a hand IMO. :cool:

Unless you were booing Moss when he played for the Vikings, there is no reason to boo him now. As for the game itself, I'm looking forward to the Vikes kicking the sh*t out of the Raiders and keeping Randy out of the endzone just like the rest of you, probably more so, but let's be real here, it is only a preseason game.

Fu*k the Raiders!
Fu*k Moss!(sorry Randy)

singersp
08-01-2006, 12:31 PM
I won't be booing. Moss wanted to stay here, but the tight-ass traded him away.

His leaving wasn't his own choice, but he certainly played a big role in it with his on & off field antics & his "in the locker room" behavior.

JellyBean2144
08-01-2006, 02:24 PM
There are mixed reactions. On one hand you want to boo because they are the enemy. On the other hand, it is the Raiders with Randy Moss. I have the greatest respect for the Raiders and Moss. The Raiders were the reason why I played football; the hard hits, the brass smash mouth type of play, the take no prisoners mindset, and plus they were renegades!! Other than the Vikings, I would cheer for the Raiders in a heartbeat. The Raiders made football fun. And with Randy Moss, how can you boo him?

Sure he left us, but it was for the best. The excitement that Randy brought to Minnesota was excellent and I still cheer for the man when ever I get a chance to watch a Raider game. I bleed Minnesota; MPLS North grad, Golden Gopher grad, born and raised in Minnesota. But I am a closet Raider fan.

This game, I will just sit back and enjoy the game. Now if it was the Cowboys or the Packers, then I would boo my behind off. But between the Vikings and Raiders, it is like watching your two brothers fight; you want the coolest one (VIkings) to win. You just hope the bratty brother (Raiders) doesn't get hurt to badly.

I've twice heard the boo birds come out twice today. Now, normally I would agree with Zeus that fans absolutely have a right to boo. But today it's been ridiculous. Booing on a 3rd and 7 when Tarvaris's pass gets deflected? Please. Fucking fickle fans. Tarvaris has looked pretty damn good when called on today. Booing him because of one deflected pass is horseshit. Although, to be fair, the fans at the dome were pretty much summed up today when CBS did a close up of some drunk schmucks hollering and holding their flag backwards.

If Jackson has little confidence then why is he a starting quarterback?


The fans are booing this team because Jackson is obviously the weak link.
You cannot deny that and dont even try.

You are right we should not booo TJ we should be boooing the coaching and the managment.
We all knew before the season started how much TJ sucks at football, it is not his fault he is being placed in the position it is the managment.
Stop boooing TJ and start demanding the coaching staff pulls their head out of thier ass.

And to anyone who say's TJ has good stats
you are a fool...
They stack the box all day long and AP still moves the ball, while TJ can't complete a pass on single coverage.

He sucks but it isn't his fault, so stop boooing him you may hurt his fealings.


Note to the Vikings coaching staff, pull your head out of TJ's ass he sucks and don't destroy our season again.

Fuck Vikings fans.

What the is the point of having home field advantage if you're going to boo your QB (who was having a decent day) instead of the zebras who were blowing calls left and right?

I only heard the refs get booed once, and yet they gave the Colts a free touchdown (Addai was clearly stuffed by Pat Williams at the goalline) and two obvious back-to-back pass interferences in the 4th quarter that went uncalled (first to Bobby Wade on 2nd down, then to Berrian on 3rd down)--both of which should have been first downs.

Again, if the players aren't giving their best effort, by all means boo away. But I don't see where that was happening today. If anything, the team on both sides of the ball were working their asses off until the fans started turning on them. What does that do but give the opposing team confidence (who by the way had looked like complete shit with no confidence all day up until the boos started coming out)?

It was pathetic.

I, for one, would have no problem if this team moved to LA with fans like these. I'm not geographically tied to the Vikings any longer (if anything LA would be closer than Minnesota for me), and I sure think this team deserves better fans. They won't get them in LA, but that's beside the point. Minnesota's fickle fans have had their chance.

Those of you booing Tarvaris for what was otherwise a decent game should be ashamed. But you'll have plenty of time to think about that when Minnesota no longer has a football team.

I certainly have had it though.

I won't go as far as you, but as much as I will be unpopular for it, I think sometimes fans just don't think and don't care about the people that are players.
I may despise his effort, but it serves me no good to boo him and insure he will not have his head in the game.

:D

OK, let's see. How about I begin by stupidly questioning your assertion that "This game should of (sic) been over in the second quarter and there is no possible way you can disagree" (I know, I know, why try? I must be a complete idiot)?

Well, for starters, the Colts had some guy named Peyton Manning playing QB. I don't know much about this guy, but I've been told that he has an aptitude for coming back and winning games in the fourth quarter. Plus, he has these wide receivers--maybe you've heard of them--Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, who are apparently not only good generally, but good in the clutch (see final catch of the game: P.Manning pass deep middle to 87-R.Wayne to MIN 29 for 20 yards).

Then there's the problem of the Vikings' receivers dropping balls in the end zone, going out with injuries, running out of bounds then coming back in to grab the ball on a punt, and not getting open. There were also the fans booing when a pass got deflected, yet eerily silenced when the refs blew calls.

And as long as were on that subject, how about a free TD to Joseph Addai who was clearly stuffed by Pat Williams? Or how'd you like the two non-calls of pass interference in the fourth quarter--one to Bobby Wade and one to Bernard Berrian--that should have been first downs and would have at the very least kept the Colts from getting the ball back at the end of the game?

Of course, none of this matters because I'm stupid and on drugs. Why else would anyone possibly question your statement with which "no possible way you could disagree"?

I'm not going to say that Tjack had a good game and I won't defend his performance. But booing the starting quarterback while we are winning, during the home opener is not acceptable to me. It's a long seaon and this is just too early.

What the is the point of having home field advantage if you're going to boo your QB (who was having a decent day) instead of the zebras who were blowing calls left and right?

I only heard the refs get booed once, and yet they gave the Colts a free touchdown (Addai was clearly stuffed by Pat Williams at the goalline) and two obvious back-to-back pass interferences in the 4th quarter that went uncalled (first to Bobby Wade on 2nd down, then to Berrian on 3rd down)--both of which should have been first downs.

Again, if the players aren't giving their best effort, by all means boo away. But I don't see where that was happening today. If anything, the team on both sides of the ball were working their dimply buttocks off until the fans started turning on them. What does that do but give the opposing team confidence (who by the way had looked like complete pooh with no confidence all day up until the boos started coming out)?

It was pathetic.

I, for one, would have no problem if this team moved to LA with fans like these. I'm not geographically tied to the Vikings any longer (if anything LA would be closer than Minnesota for me), and I sure think this team deserves better fans. They won't get them in LA, but that's beside the point. Minnesota's fickle fans have had their chance.

Those of you booing Tarvaris for what was otherwise a decent game should be ashamed. But you'll have plenty of time to think about that when Minnesota no longer has a football team.




I don't boo my team in the stadium because I find it untoward.

I certainly have had it though.

I won't go as far as you, but as much as I will be unpopular for it, I think sometimes fans just don't think and don't care about the people that are players.

I may despise his effort, but it serves me no good to boo him and insure he will not have his head in the game.




Thats a very nice way to put it.


The way i see it is he sucks and desearves the hate brought down on him.


This game should of been over in the second quarter and there is no possible way you can disagree.


No possible way. None whatsoever. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

With a definitive argument like that how could anyone question you?

Keep booing, my friend. Boo those Vikings all the way to California.


Are you on drugs?

If not then please explain your stupidity to me.
