What happened to Warren Moon in 1995?

Why: On "30 Rock" (Astronaut Mike Dexter played by Dot Com):
ASTRONAUT MIKE DEXTER - I'm gonna be coming by all the time, getting jealous, taking things out of context. That dude Brian will be happier moving out.
BRIAN - OK, everybody just calm down.
ASTRONAUT MIKE DEXTER - I feel angry, like Warren Moon must have felt back in 1995.
LIZ LEMON - As I've told you many times during our relationship, no one gets that reference.
Answer: Moon is a former quarterback for the Edmonton Eskimos (1978-1983), the Houston Oilers (1984-1993), the Minnesota Vikings (1994-1996), the Seattle Seahawks (1997-1998), and the Kansas City Chiefs (1999-2000).

I think this is the event in question:
On July 18, 1995, Warren reportedly had a violent confrontation with his wife Felicia. She told detectives that he had slapped her, choked her, and chased her when she fled in a car. In a July 21 press conference, Warren apologized for a "tremendous mistake" and said he would seek counseling. Despite Felicia's refusal to press charges, Warren was arrested for misdemeanor assault and went to trial in February 1996; he was acquitted.

The More You Know: A few weeks ago, Jenna walked into a room and said, "Beat it, Grizz or Dot Com." That's racist, but I smile every time I think of it.

During his NFL career, Warren Moon was named to nine Pro Bowl games (1988–1995, 1997). Moon currently works as a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006, becoming both the first Canadian Football Hall of Famer, first undrafted quarterback and the first African-American quarterback to be so honored. Here is in action, throwing a football:

So awesome, Warren Moon was a Viking, so funny how you always Google things that I know about.

I laughed pretty hard at that too. probably 5 minutes prior to that comment i was thinking to myself "wait, which one is grizz and which is dot com? i can never remember"

Jenna saying "beat it Grizz or dot-com" isn't necessarily racist...

it also implies shes simply so self centered and caught up in her own in selfish bubble that she doesn't know which one is which. She just knows it's one of two.

I'm just now catching up on the last month of 30 Rock- watching the episodes online. When I heard the "Warren Moon 1995" reference I googled just that- and guess what I found? Your blog. Love the premise- and thanks for the explanation!

P.S. By the way, minor correction. Dot Com [as Astronaut Mike Dexter] says: "I'm gonna be coming by all the time, getting jealous, taking things out of context. That dude Brian will be happier moving out." [not "happy I'm moving out"]
