Randy Moss threatens to fight media personality in deleted tweet
Randy Moss was extremely emotional while sharing his thoughts on the Jon Gruden situation on Sunday, and the Hall of Famer drew a lot of praise for what he said. Jason Whitlock, however, is one member of the media who was not impressed. Whitlock was highly critical of Moss, and let’s just say Moss did not appreciate the feedback.
Whitlock published a story on Monday in which he used the spelling “Randi” for Moss’ first name. Whitlock intentionally used a feminine spelling of the name and berated Moss for “(using) Gruden’s leaked email to ascend through the pearly gates of victimhood.”
Moss saw Whitlock’s criticism and responded to Whitlock over Twitter with a threat.
Moss wrote “ON SITE!” to Whitlock before quickly deleting the tweet. One of Whitlock’s followers captured a screenshot:

That was Moss’ way of threatening violence against Whitlock.
What Moss meant was “on sight,” which is a way to say that there will be a fight the next time the two people see each other. The phrase “on sight” is
described by Urban Dictionary as “a phrase you use to tell a person once you see them no word will be spoken, but hands will be thrown.”
Most people know what the phrase means. Moss likely realized it was wrong to threaten to fight a fellow member of the media, which probably explains why he deleted the tweet.

That certainly isn’t the first time we have seen a former athlete threaten violence over something a prominent member of the media said. It was a bad look for Moss, and he probably knew it.
