Al Davis, still in his Battlestar Galactica outfit, had some choice words on many subjects after Wednesday's bizarre news conference to announce he had fired head coach Lane Kiffin.

Davis claimed Kiffin didn't want Moss anymore and accused the Patriots of tampering by privately running Moss through a workout before the deal.
"You know how many teams turned him down," Davis said, according to San Jose Mercury News columnist Tim Kawakami's blog. "That guy in Green Bay thought he couldn't run any more. Even Denver, where they'll take anybody, turned him down.
"But what's his name knew he could run. He's a friend of Belichick's, [former Raiders executive] Mike Lombardi. Mike sold what's his name, Belichick, on the idea that he could run. They tampered with him.
"I remember [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft saying that he had to look him in the eye and all that. They went down and worked him out. He could run. He's their team, of course, with the quarterback."
Ol' what's his name responded a few moments ago on a media conference call.
"I've told the story about Randy many, many times," Belichick said. "The first time I ever talked to Randy was the Sunday morning of the second day of the draft last year. That is the first time I met him, the first time I talked to him. No, there was no workout. There was no other contact with him."
