MOON'S DOMESTIC PROBLEMS ADD TO VIKINGS' TROUBLED OFF-SEASON
Published July 24, 1995
Noting Warren Moon's domestic dispute and the fact that linebacker Broderick Thomas was stopped at Houston's airport for trying to carry a gun through a metal detector, columnist Dan Barreiro writes that the Vikings "have become a league-wide embarrassment." Other off-season issues: Sexual harassment charges against Moon, coach Dennis Green, and assistant coach Richard Solomon, problems with the team's lease at the Metrodome, and the "dumping" of the team's longtime ticket manager. Barreiro: "The Vikings have two choices before them: erect a guard tower or ask the NFL to put them out of their misery. I vote death penalty" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 7/23). Moon met the media in Houston on Friday, with his wife Felicia, whom he allegedly assaulted, by his side. Moon accepted responsibility for the incident (STAR TRIBUNE, 7/22). Moon was formally charged Friday with beating his wife (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 7/22). Yesterday, Moon announced the formation of a second foundation -- joining his previous Crescent Moon Foundation -- which will help athletes and their spouses with domestic problems. Barreiro calls this "right out of the handbook" of agent Leigh Steinberg (STAR TRIBUNE, 7/24).
