Randy Moss is a wide receiver for arguably the best team in the NFL, the New England Patriots. They have the best record and Moss was recently named on the All-Pro team. During the regular season he surpassed Jerry Rice’s record of 22 touchdown passes by scoring 23. He also caught 98 passes.
It just so happens that at the height of his success, a woman allegedly accused Moss of battery and abuse. A restraining order was placed on Moss to stay 500 feet away from the woman who, by the way, has yet to be identified. Now six days before the Super Bowl, he has to attend court to determine if the restraining order will be permanent or not.
I just have one question: If Moss put his hands on her then why weren’t the charges not placed on him sooner? If someone put their hands on me I wouldn’t wait two weeks to file a report.
She also claimed that Moss refused to let her seek medical treatment. In a press conference that Moss had with ESPN on Jan. 16 he argued that: “She has her own house. She has her own car. How can I deny someone medical treatment if they have their own vehicle.”
This woman has no disabilities and seems to be able to speak, and therefore nothing was holding her back.
I’m not saying she wasn’t hit. I’m just saying it wasn’t by Moss.
He has no prior allegations of violence with this woman and on top of everything else she is still unidentified.
Along with her accusations, no pictures of the alleged assault were filed and neither were there any threatening phone calls from Moss to the woman.
At least when Allen Iverson’s wife filed her complaint she had witnesses. Kobe Bryant’s mistress had tons of evidence. The Pacers and Pistons battery against the crowd was taped.
All this woman has is her word.
Someone should do a background check on him and reread his resume. He argues that, “I’ve never hit a woman and I never will.”
