The disconnect between professional athletes and fans just keeps getting worse and worse, doesn't it?
The latest example of that widening gap is the comment Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss made after being fined for his touchdown celebration in Green Bay last Sunday.
Moss was fined $10,000 by the NFL for "obscene gestures or other actions construed as being in poor taste."
The celebration included Moss pretending to pull down his pants and moon the Green Bay crowd, then doing the bump with the goal post before his teammates converged on him.
In poor taste? Definitely.
But even more tasteless was Moss' quote following notification of his fine.
"Ain't nothing but 10 grand. What's 10 grand, to me?" said Moss, who will make $5.75 million this season.
Moss also suggested he might give an even more vulgar display should he score in today's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, which would be sure to draw an even bigger fine.
