Mark Cuban is wrong about Randy Moss

Mark Cuban comments about the simulated mooning that Randy Moss executed in the playoff game against Green Bay. To paraphrase, Mark asks “What’s the big deal?”

I have to disagree. If Randy Moss had given the finger to the crowd from the end zone, the NFL would certainly have fined him.

Our words and actions all carry meaning. It’s the meaning that is important. Sometimes the meaning is implicit. Other times it is very explicit. Jake Plummer’s action carried an explicit meaning. The meaning was derogatory and inappropriate for the context.

The meaning behind Randy Moss’ action was exactly the same as Jake Plummer’s. It was derogatory and inappropriate for the context. Randy should be disciplined in the same manner.
