Re: Randy Moss Pretends to Moon Fans
Vikings owner Red McCombs (who lives here in San Antonio, btw) wanted young Buck removed from the next Vikings broadcast.
McCombs wants Fox's Buck off Vikings' broadcast
Fox Sports turned down Minnesota Vikings owner Red McCombs' request to remove play-by-play announcer Joe Buck from Sunday's game at Philadelphia over his criticism of Randy Moss.
After Moss caught a touchdown pass in last weekend's win at Green Bay, the wide receiver celebrated by pretending to pull down his pants and moon Packers fans. Buck immediately called it a ''disgusting act.''
McCombs said that statement was out of line. A two-sentence news release issued by the team said McCombs felt Buck's comments ''suggested a prejudice that surpassed objective reporting.''
Dan Bell, a Fox spokesman, said Wednesday the network has ''no intention whatsoever'' of removing Buck.
Buck, during an interview on Sporting News Radio earlier this week, stood by his criticism.
''I have nothing against Randy Moss,'' Buck said. ''I don't even know the guy. I just know that with the history that he's had, and coming off that game at Washington, it was just stunning to see that.''
