Red McCombs

The latest issue of Texas Monthly has an interview with the former owner of the Vikings, Red McCombs. Since most of you don’t read Texas Monthly and it’s not available online, I’ll pass on the bizarre highlights.
On Randy Moss: “Randy Moss was a pure delight. Frankly if I had ten Randy Mosses, I’d love it… He’s a down-to-earth, solid, caring person. I loved having Randy Moss every season.”
On selling the Vikes: “I inherited an onerous stadium lease, and I couldn’t create any traction to get a new stadium done.”
On being a co-owner of Clear Channel and why people hate the evil company: “Because we’re so much better than everybody else in that business. And most of the criticism comes from our competitors, not our customers… We wake up every day and turn on a microphone that talks to about half the people in the United States.”

    “And most of the criticism comes from our competitors, not our customers… We wake up every day and turn on a microphone that talks to about half the people in the United States.”

    That’s because they have a microphone, so they don’t need to listen. Their customers have been complaining for ages.
