    Default How TO can stay...

    hey, he's an athlete, young, spoiled,rich,coddled,etc..but he's still a person and isnt excused from making bad choices...we all make mistakes and bad choices,..the question is..what do you do about it?

    FOr me, i can see what's really going on here...
    and i have one condition that To must meet in order for me to take him back to the team...
    This condition is an additional one from the full-on apology the team wanted, which i think he did yesterday in front of the world..he should also do it behind doors to the team..but that aint enough....

    The single condition that he must agree to immediately, and is non-negotiable, is that TO must fire Drew Rosenhaus and pick up a nice guy the team is ok with.
    Iw ould tell him he has 24 hrs to make up for the bad choices he's made the past year and make the right choice now by firing Rosenfuck.. in addition, he will still sit the 3 remaining games of his suspension, but then will be back on full terms w/ the team.

    what do you say??

    To me, there's no way you can let this guy back into your clubhouse. His past comments with the 49ers and this year's comments with the Eagles tell me this is one guy who isn't likely to change. Sell him to the worst team in the Arena league and get on with life.

    T.O. is Dennis Rodman all over again. His career is basically over. If I were the Eagles, I wouldn't want him back. No other team will want to deal with his baggage, no matter how talented he is.

    Yeah but how many times do you allow an "adult" to make the same mistake? His track record speaks volumes about him.


    the question is..what do you do about it?
    You send his ass packing. I hope the Eagles do not change thier mind. What a great life lesson for people. I hate the Eagles but really respect them on this one.

    Here is an interesting article on T.O, with a slightly new perspective. It's too long to post here: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ens/index.html

    The only thing they can and should do is what they're doing. Bench his ass and wipe out half a season from his career. The only thing that would make this better is if the Eagles win the SB. Can you imagine how quiet this bitch is gonna be next year? My only wish is that IF someone HAS to sign him, it'd be only one team offering only the minimum veteran salary. Only in a perfect world.

    Football is a much larger public scale, of course, but this is no different than the guy who is an office jerk. He may be very good at his job, but if he is an office jerk, he gets fired. If that employee bad-mouthed the company for not acknowledging his 100th sale or whatever, or if constantly bad-mouthed upper managment, he would be with that company for very long.
    Owens will play somewhere next year, no doubt; he is just too good. But he has ruined any chance any getting top dollar and/or a long term contract from another team. Not to mention the millions he has lost through marketing. He will have to play year to year on a one year contract and his anctics (if there are any) will determine how many teams are interested in him the following year. After all, the value of the contract is based on supply & demand.

    Sean Salisbury pointed out that during T.O.'s news conference, he counted the words "I" and "Me" no less than 58 times.

    He had plenty of chances to shut his mouth and just play football this year, but he didn't. The only reason he's apologizing now is because he's done for the year, otherwise he'd still be running his mouth. His apology was about as genuine as Pam Anderson's rack. He's a POS, and is getting what he deserves, and the Eagles aren't stupid enough to let him back after that ploy.

    Someone will take a chance on him because he's a great player, but he will never get the money he wants, like someone else said. He's ruined that for himself for sure now.

    He's a very arrogant, stupid person, who has a horrible agent giving him horrible advice.

    From cnnsi.com Truth and Rumors:

    The Jets were interested in Randy Moss before he was traded to the Raiders, but the price was too high. The price would be lower for Terrell Owens, and it would be surprising if the Jets don't make a bid for the receiver.

    NFLPA hopes to give T.O. shot at playing in '05
    ESPN.com news services

    If the NFL Players Association has its way, Terrell Owens will have a shot at playing football again this season, a key union official told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

    The players union will not only ask arbitrator Richard Bloch to reduce the financial penalty but will argue that Owens should be reinstated to the "exact status" he had as a player before his suspension.

    "That status means that he reports to the practice facility, he goes to team meetings, he practices and, hopefully, he plays," the union source said. "True, we can't force the Eagles to activate him on game day and play him but we feel pretty strongly about our case."

    Under the arbitration rules, Bloch cannot make Owens a free agent but if he reinstates the receiver, as the union asks, it could force the team's hand to release him, to avoid the distraction of Owens reporting for work every day.

    Financially, the union will argue that the Eagles' four-game suspension of Owens for conduct detrimental to the team was excessive and, at the most, he should miss only one game check for this past weekend's game against the Redskins.

    The union source said that when the Eagles notified the NFLPA in writing on Saturday, the team simply stated the Owens was being suspended only for the Redskins game.

    "You can't then go out and add three more games after the fact," the union official insisted.
