I bet he’ll “straight cash” those media checks. During his NFL career Randy Moss wasn’t one of the most “media friendly” players.  And now that he’s technically a member of the media, as an analyst for the new Fox Sports 1 network, he doesn’t like that label. “I don’t like that term. I just like being called part of FOX Football Daily and our Sunday show. I am not part of the media. That’s not my label, and I don’t want it to start now. I love the game of football, and this is just a new way for me to be part of the game. Everything from the makeup to the studio to the lights, camera, action, I am enjoying everything. I like to adventure out and learn new things, and this gives me the opportunity to keep learning.” Let’s let the dictionary decide this shall we… me•di•a 1 ˈmidiəShow Spelled [mee-dee-uh] Show IPA noun 1. a plural of medium. 2. ( usually used with a plural verb ) the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines, that reach or influence people widely: The media are covering the speech tonight. I know that due to sometimes biased coverage, athletes have a love/hate relationship with the media.  And although Moss looks at himself as the media antithesis, based on the definition that’s exactly what he is. Cheer up Randy, all media members aren’t on a witch hunt. You just be one of the good guys.
