Per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune

After catching only one pass for 8 yards in the Vikings’ 28-18 loss to the New England Patriots, Moss walked into the visitors’ locker room where Wilf and other executives stood. According to an NFL source familiar with what transpired, Moss told the Vikings owner in no uncertain terms that Childress wasn’t a good coach and should be fired.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and sometimes those desperate measures involve risks that completely blow up in your face. Here we have a coach, who will likely be fired at the end of the season, waiving a talented yet temperamental receiver (whom he just acquired four weeks earlier at the cost of a third-round pick) without even consulting ownership. And as it turns out, that receiver, just four weeks into his stint with his new team, called for the dismissal of the coach.

You can’t make this stuff up, people.
