    Moss Denies Allegations He Seriously Injured a WomanFOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Randy Moss said Wednesday that allegations he committed battery against a woman are false and that she made the claim to get money from him.



    "I want to make something clear," the New England Patriots wide receiver said while surrounded by reporters and cameras at his locker. "In my whole entire life of living 30 years, I've never put my hand on one woman, physically or in an angry manner."



    The woman, identified in court records as Rachelle Washington, 35, of Fort Lauderdale, filed for and was granted a protection order against Moss, alleging he committed battery against her. The temporary injunction, issued in Broward County (Fla.) court, bars Moss from coming within 500 feet of the woman and from using or possessing firearms.



    No criminal charges have been filed in the matter. A hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 28, which is the Monday before the Super Bowl.



    Moss gave no details of the alleged incident, saying he was restricted by the legal case.



    He said the woman was a friend of 11 years and that she asked for "six figures" for what Moss said was an accident in which she was hurt. He did not provide details about the accident.

    "They're false allegations, something I've been battling for like the last couple of days of threats going public if I didn't pay X amount of dollars," Moss said. "So before people rush quick to judgment I think you need to find out the facts about, really, what's going on.



    "This young lady by no means is hurt. I didn't hurt her."



    David McGill, a Miami-based attorney representing Washington, told ESPN.com "At this time there is no comment on the situation.''



    Asked if he was aware of comments from Moss that his clients was seeking money to keep quiet, McGill said "We have no comment on anything.''



    New England plays the San Diego Chargers in the AFC Championship Game in Foxborough on Sunday.



    Moss, who set an NFL record with 23 touchdown catches this season, said he spoke with coach Bill Belichick about the matter. Moss spoke to about 30 reporters in the locker room after Belichick's regular news conference at which the coach wasn't asked about it.



    Moss has avoided off-field problems this season and has been hailed by other Patriots players as an excellent teammate and leader. In his previous nine seasons -- seven with Minnesota and two with Oakland -- he was involved in several incidents.



    With Minnesota, he was criticized by quarterback Daunte Culpepper and others for leaving the field with 2 seconds left in a regular-season loss to Washington. He bumped a traffic control officer with his car in 2002, verbally abused corporate sponsors on a team bus in 2001 and squirted an official with a water bottle in 1999.



    He strongly denied the latest allegations, breaking his usual midweek silence.



    "It's very unfair to athletes if a person makes a false claim. You know, there's nothing that we can do," Moss said. "The only thing that we can do is either pay up or sit back and listen to what's being said or what's being written.



    "For someone to make a false claim about me, I'm kind of furious," he said. "It kind of hurts me deep inside for someone to do something like that because, you know, I've always said time and time again, I'm going to stand up for what's right. If I'm right, I'm right. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong."

    I heard she's trying to get over six figures from Moss. Talk about bad timing too.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Ah if you're innocent, would you not sue her and/or file charges of blackmail or extortion rather than "pay up or sit back and listen to what's being said or what's being written"?

    Not to attach any particular significance to this, but is there anyone here who couldn't come up with at least a semi-complete work address for Randy Moss?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't Moss accused of beating his gf while in high school (college maybe?).

    Boston, MA. There, good enough.

    Kinda reminds me of when Homer Simpson tried to intercept a hate-filled letter he sent to Mr. Burns:

    HS: "Hello, I'm Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me."

    Clerk: "Ok, and what's your first name?"

    HS: "I don't know."
