What a 2010 NFL season it's been, right? Here some of us are struggling to make ends meet, working the grind, pounding out papers for school, dealing with kids, morning commutes and the list goes on. 

Then you have your social elites. Athletes in particular. 

I have never been able to identify another society that places so much emphasis on an elite status like the United States. Then again, we're the greatest country in the world, right?

Lets not get too far off track here. So when we started the 2010 NFL season, New England Patriots WR Randy Moss was shipped to Minnesota prompting a potential return-to-where it started feel good story, even getting the YouTube star DJ Steve Porter involved with one of his newest releases One Clap, starring guess who, Randy Moss.

He ended up playing four games at Minnesota, catching two TDs and amassing a grand total of 174 yards.  To his credit in that scenario, Minnesota has been in a bad way with the recent static head coach Brad Childress had with owner Ziggy Wilf and the rest of the Vikes locker room. 

Moss was then released into free agency, and 31 NFL teams passed on him without a claim until the Tennessee Titans decided to give him a go.  How much of a success was that? Five games, five receptions, 62 yards and ZERO TD's. 

Dang, that's gotta hurt for fantasy owners. 

We have another coaching situation where the potential message could be going stale between coach Jeff Fisher and the struggling Titans.  QB Vince Young has had issues with Coach Fisher, and has been periodically benched.  Personally I think Jeff will be canned after a dismal 5-8 record at this point of the season.

Which brings me to the whole point of this story. In a recent radio show call-in segment in  Nashville, a caller by the name of "Woody" can be heard at this NBC pro football talk website http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/12/17/the-latest-randy-moss-controversy-could-be-the-weirdest-yet/

Listen to the audio clip and make your own judgement, but going back and listening to the One Clap by DJ Steve Porter, or even if you've been a fan of the sport for a while you can make your best guess that this is Randy Moss blowing off some steam about coach Jeff Fisher. 

Did I mention this guy is getting a guaranteed $15 million dollars in his pocket? Must be nice to be Randy. What a waste of supreme grade A talent.

Keep acting Randy, we're watching.
