    I am certain the following will infuriate plenty of Linkers (but it will be nice to have a debate that is not the 1,000,0000,000 repeat of Dave vs. Sammy):

    Watching the NFL recap shows this weekend, it occurred to me that Terrell Owens of the 49ers has the same attitude and swagger that Dave used to have (it falls a little flat now). Terrell's pom-pom dance even reminded me a lot of the scene with the Raiderettes in Dave's "A Lil Ain't Enough" video.

    Dave's potshots at "The Clash" or "Quiet Riot" for putting iced tea in the J.D. bottles was the rock-n-roll equivalent of T.O. spiking the ball on the Dallas midfield.

    Both guys are (or were) at the top of their game, but neither takes himself too seriously.

    I couldn't disagree with you more. Diamond Dave had everyone in the arena eating out of his hand during his heyday, and t.o., for as great as a receiver as he is, lost the respect of many fans of football players with great ability, when he mocked Emmitt and the Cowboys, and if memory serves me right, George Teague took care of Emmitt's light work that day.

    Dave goes so far as to say he won't be a bully to Eddie while he's down, yet t.o. does exactly that when he did his shit on the Dallas star, and I guarantee you, he wouldn't have pulled that shit when Dallas was even decent, let alone winning Super Bowls. Fuck Terrell Owens!!! He is a great talent, but every time he pulls some of his shit, he takes the legacy of the 49'ers down yet another notch, proving sports is as much of a business as music is, with tradition meaning jack-squat to the owners, letting this kind of bullshit run rampant as long as a team wins. Almost as sad as boy bands and skanky hides being the be-all, end-all of today's music scene. People, get a fucking clue and wake the fuck up!

    T.O.'s bit in Dallas was hysterical -- the kind of in-your-face bravado that is getting squeezed out of the No Fun League. Dallas fans are just sore about the fact that the Cowboys are the NFL's version of "Quiet Riot." Jerry Jones is Kevin DuBrow with a lot more money, a little more plastic surgery, and a Southern accent. And, after Jerry screws Emmitt this offseason, Kevin DuBrow will be more popular.

    But as far as Dave is concerned, he was one of the original masters of the trash-talking. He used to take shots at Journey, the Clash, Quiet Riot, and others. Even recently, didn't he talk about Bon Jovi's album "Crush" and tour as being based upon Jon's realization that private school is expensive. What about "Van Heineken" and, my fav, the comments about porn with Val. The stuff was just as hysterical and just as in-your-face.

    Really? All my friends laughed their ass off when, T.O. went out to the star. Same with the Sharpie incident.

    Do you have some unresoved issues regarding the forty niners. You by chance worn't a Ram fan were you? Did you grow up watching the niners win super bowls?
    I have met and spoken to Mr. Owens and he is a very nice man. He just has a hunger to perform and is at the moment one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.
    Thanks for the board, it's great

    terrell and dave both give a shit about the same thing, themselves! neither could give a flying fuck about the 49'ers or about van halen. that's why neither one of them is respected. maybe if they both looked at the bigger picture, people would warm up to them

    Terrell is the man! He brings something new to the game. Sure the class acts get all of the respect, but the Terrell Owens' get to have all the fun.

    I think the only ones who are upset with T.O. are Cowboys fans as he showed them up on that classic day in Dallas. I think sometimes T.O. whines a bit too much, but I like the attitude he brings to the game. I also think he needs to show more respect for his opponents in some instances. But the first time in Dallas will be shown in highlight films for years to come.

    T.O. is an asshole, but there isn't a team in the league that wouldn't LOVE to have him on their roster...
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-
