Randy Moss Fined $25,000 for Ignoring Minnesota Vikings Media


Despite receiving an official warning from the NFL, Randy Moss continued to ignore requests for interviews, and now it has landed him a hefty fine.

The Vikings' wide receiver was informed on Oct. 29th that his next paycheck will be $25,000 less than usual for failing to cooperate with reporters for interviews.

All NFL players are expected to be available at least once a week and after games for interviews with the media. Since his introductory speech in Minnesota, the media hasn't been able to get in much contact with Moss.

Fines aren't unusual for the Vikings, and just this week the team racked up a total of $80,000 in fines between Moss, coach Brad Childress and right tackle Phil Loadholt.

Childress received a $35,000 fine for his criticism of the referees during Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers while Loadholt was fined $20,000 for a facemask penalty on Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Loadholt received a larger fine than usual for being a repeat offender.
