Straight bunk, homie
Moss in trouble with the law? Terry Bradshaw alive?

Hey Florio, fake Patriots stories is our schtick!!!


Last night Pro Football Talk reported that Randy Moss was the subject of a temporary restraining order taken out by a Florida woman. Holy shit, we thought, this changes everything! Hilarious posts would have to be written (by someone else). Wagers recalculated.

The cold light of day found PFT backpedaling faster than Kyle Orton with a hangover. Turns out the story, from a Florida radio station, was a bunch of baloney. What do you know, there is more than one person named Randy Moss in the world!

We like PFT (most of us anyway), but apparently being first means being wrong on occassion. We can toss this one alongside other clunkers like Farve's 2006 training camp retirement, Terry Bradshaw's untimely demise, and the low, low rates on Sprint text messaging. No wait, that last one is really true. Carry on then.

Caveman edit: Don't forget this PFT fuck-up.

PM Update: Random Asshat writes: "And nice job attacking PFT for posting that 'false' Moss story, then failing to mention anywhere on your site that it turned out that the report PFT cited was 100% accurate." Thanks, RA.

Here's a copy of the order. It appears to be the same Randy Moss.

My unlimited texting is only $5/month... and I don't even have the power pack plan. Yeah. That's right.

Don't blame Florio; blame the radio station for posting, taking down and reposting the story.

Florio also confirmed that Big Daddy Drew is currently being held on $1 million bail for running a prostitution ring.

Sounds like somebody needs an adorable kitten poster with the words "POBODY'S NERFECT!"

@pemulis

Yeah. I'm more accustomed to dating awkwardness followed by humiliation.

Ape is the one neurotic about his comment count. Personally, I don't give a rat's ass.

Moss responds to the allegations. The story was about him, but of course he didn't do it.

His own comments sound as if he knows he is guilty of something and is still unconcerned.

As a Masshole I am much more concerned with Terry Bradshaw Alive?
