A Perfect Fit 

I'm happy to report that I've found yet another reason to hate the Oakland Raiders. Reports say Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss will be traded to the Raiders. I've previously explained my feelings about Moss here. To fresh everyone's memory, here's a summary of Randy's on-field antics from ESPN.

Feeling fine: Moss' costly antics
January 2005 $10,000 for "Moon Over Green Bay"
November 2001 $15,000 for yelling at sponsors on bus
November 2001 $10,000 for taunting N.Y. Giants
November 2000 $25,000 for touching an official
January 2000 $25,000 for squirting official with water
November 1999 $10,000 for yelling at official

That list doesn't include an incident where Moss left the sidelines (and his teammates) before the game was over. He has the talent to succeed, and if he stopped being his own worst enemy, there's no telling how far he could go. Now that he's with a team that has always acted with an arrogant attitude, it all makes it so much easier to root against him.
