Randy Moss-WR- Patriots Jan. 16 - 10:58 am et


WDBO-AM Radio has put up their story about a temporary restraining order against Randy Moss again Wednesday. The story was down throughout Wednesday morning after initially posting Tuesday night. Randy Moss admitted it was true Wednesday.

The reporter Rozzie Franco went on WEEI in Boston this morning to say that the story is about the Patriots' Randy Moss. A scanned copy of the order clearly indicates it's the receiver. Franco reports that a hearing in the case is scheduled on January 28th. It's important to note that no criminal charges or arrest has been made, so don't expect the Patriots to address the issue, but this is certainly a distraction the team doesn't need.

Randy Moss-WR- Patriots Jan. 16 - 12:03 pm et


Randy Moss addressed the temporary restraining order against him Wednesday.

"First of all, you all probably heard about these allegations. All I want to say is that they are false allegations. It’s something I’ve been battling for the last couple days, threats of going public if I didn’t pay X amount of dollars. Before people rush quick to judgment, I think you need to find out the facts about really what is really going on," Moss said. Check out the Boston Globe's Reiss' Pieces for more of Moss' interesting comments.

If the allegations are "baseless," as Moss claims, why the restraining order? Evidently, a judge thought there was enough evidence behind these "baseless allegations" to issue an ex parte restraining order. Next. :coffee:

is there any suprise that randy moss is gay, too?

"I want to make something clear," the 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."

to be fair, maybe he's asexual.

Nope, that was a jury that thought OJ was innocent. A judge issued the temporary, or ex parte, restraining order, not a jury. Big difference.

Complainant swears with no cross examination or opposing evidence being presented that it happened (aka ex parte) - Moss would not even have an attorney at the ex parte hearing

Judge signs the order because if judge guesses wrong and order denied "irreparable injury" (aka complainant gets whacked) could occur if complainant is correct and subject of order goes after her

The order is temporary - complainant wants to get a permanent order then both sides put up proof

Maybe it happened maybe it didn't; all the order proves is that complainant says something happened - not a real high burden of proof there

Moss circus arrives in New England

By Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports
January 16, 2008

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. ? Whether Randy Moss committed "dating violence," as a Florida woman alleges in a court complaint that got her a temporary restraining order against him, or the New England Patriots receiver is a victim of a "six-figure ? extortion" plot due to an "accident," as he claimed Wednesday, is impossible to know.

As often is the case with Randy G. Moss ? as he's referred to in Broward County (Fla.) case DVCE08000315 ? the details are sketchy, the facts few, the conclusions varied.

What's undeniable is that as the Patriots prepare to face the San Diego Chargers in the AFC championship game on Sunday, the circus that inevitably comes with Moss' brilliant catches finally came to town.

This is the flip side to all those long touchdown receptions and highlight-reel grabs. Whether Moss is the defendant or victim here, the fact remains there always seems to be a here.

"Throughout this whole season, everything has been positive," Moss said Wednesday amid a huge crowd of reporters. "Why would I bring something negative on? Come on.

"What we're trying to do, and hopefully what's going to happen if we do things right in the next month, as much as I care and love the game of football and love my teammates and coach, I would never put myself or them in a situation of something like this."

Whether he meant to or not, whether it is fair or not, he did.

According to Broward County court documents, Moss was hit on Monday with a temporary restraining order that prohibits him from coming within 500 feet of Rachelle Washington, 35, of Fort Lauderdale.

According to the Boston Herald, the court papers allege that during a Jan. 6 incident at Washington's Fort Lauderdale home, Moss committed "a battery upon (Washington) causing serious injury. (Moss) refused to allow (Washington) to seek medical treatment."

It also claims the two have had an "intimate relationship" that dates back 11 years and that Moss has a drug or alcohol problem.

Moss, 30, has not been charged with a crime and a Fort Lauderdale Police Department spokesperson said there was no report on the incident. However, a court hearing for the restraining order is scheduled on Jan. 28 ? the start of Super Bowl week ? in Fort Lauderdale.

Moss denied he hit Washington.

"I'm innocent," he said. "Battery? I didn't hit (any) woman. I've never laid my hands on a woman. So for you to say battery, now I think if there was such a thing in the court system as an accident, then that's what I'm guilty for. But for you to say I physically, or in an angry manner, or whatever the manner, put my hands on a woman physically, I've never done that."

Moss called Washington a "friend for 11 years" and didn't deny he was there that night or that Washington suffered some injury, although he wouldn't elaborate on what kind. He scoffed at the charge that he denied her from seeking medical attention.

"She lives in her own house and has her own vehicle, so how could I deny her medical attention," Moss said. "Does that make sense?"

Moss said he was being extorted and claimed "a man" representing Washington approached him last week and demanded "six figures" to keep the story from going public.

"It's something I've been battling for the last couple days, threats of going public if I didn't pay X amount of dollars," Moss said. "They called me, called my attorneys, trying to get X amount of dollars out of me, and if 'we don't get X amount of dollars' they were going to go to the press before this game."

Moss said he went to Patriots coach Bill Belichick on Friday and told him the story before it blew up. He sought his coach's advice and, predictably, Belichick's response was "to just focus on playing football," according to Moss.

The news conference got even stranger when Moss professed his love and friendship for Washington ? although he noted the friendship was probably over.

"I don't wish anything bad on this woman. That's the love I have for her as a friend. Even though these allegations are false, or whatever she's claiming, I mean I really can't be mad at that, because if that's what she's doing, that's what she's doing.

"If she's hurt and she needs money, that's on her."

Then later, he offered this bizarre statement: "If I'm guilty, I am truly sorry and I am going to stand up for what is right, I really am."

At this point, only Moss and Washington know what happened, but the idea of Moss bringing a soap opera into the locker room during the week of the AFC championship game is a surprise to no one.

The buttoned-down Patriots organization, led by the tight-lipped Belichick, prides itself on its business-first attitude. Controversial players who struggled elsewhere have adjusted to the professionalism of the New England locker room and excelled on the field. Moss, who this year set the single-season NFL record for touchdown catches after two lackluster seasons in Oakland, is the latest example.

But now, suddenly, gone was the calm and quiet and here was Moss in the middle of a news conference so crazy even his teammates looked on with puzzlement.

"Hey, what happened with Randy?" asked one Patriot. "What's going on?"

"I don't know what it is," Donte' Stallworth said. "I don't care. We've had distractions before, so whatever."

Indeed, it may turn out to be a whatever, at least in terms of football. As much as this could be a distraction to the Patriots, it very well might amount to nothing.

If there was ever an organization that could shake this off, it is New England. Belichick is as likely to turn this into a motivational advantage for his team than allow it to become a distraction that could derail a perfect season.

Still, the other shoe finally dropped on the Patriots' big offseason acquisition. No matter his guilt or innocence, no matter her charges or his denials, no matter whether Moss is a gutless abuser or an innocent victim, the inevitable drama at last arrived.

Time will sort out the truth. Time will reveal the football impact.

But the Patriots brought in this talented guy with eyes wide open and now, at the worst possible time, they'll try to deal with the other half of their record-setting bargain.

Oh no, he's a changed man and deserves every benefit of the doubt. He's become a knockoff of Jerry Rice since he went to the "Greatest Team Ever." After all, he has Golden Boy's stamp of approval. Isn't that enough for anybody? :coffee:

"Consensual Horseplay", happens all the time. It's proven, Randy is a roughsacker in bed.

Randy Moss-WR- Patriots Jan. 17 - 10:12 am et


Attorney Joe Friedberg, a member of Randy Moss' legal team, says the woman who was granted a restraining order against Moss asked the receiver for $500,000 last week to keep the story quiet.

Friedberg says Moss refused the demand and the story popped up on a Florida radio station Tuesday night. Moss claims the woman is trying to extort him. Friedberg says the injury the woman suffered resulted from "consensual horseplay."

In an exclusive interview with the Boston Herald, Randy Moss admitted to causing the woman who recently brought a temporary restraining order against him bodily harm during a heated incident on January 6.

"It was a slight injury," Moss said. "And as a man, I was sorry. I was sincere. This woman claimed I committed battery. What I know battery to be is you really physically beat someone up or do something really bad." Moss has a January 28 court date to determine whether the restraining order will be made permanent. He's not expected to face criminal charges.

Actually Randy, no---"battery" is any "offense touching" of another person that causes injury, not matter how slight. You don't have to beat the crap out of someone to have committed "battery".

Randy Moss' attorney indicated that the woman requesting a restraining order against him injured a finger in their "consensual horseplay."

Moss isn't expected to face criminal charges, and doesn't have to appear in court for his January 28th hearing in Florida. He and the woman have known each other for 11 years, and the woman hasn't accused Randy of hitting her, but she reportedly got x-rays on her injured finger that came back negative. How she injured the finger is unknown, but "getting Randy" is starting to take on a whole new meaning.
