Default Terrell Owens ...resident dick

like we didnt know

Quote:
Another team for Terrell Owens, and another acrimonious departure. Things never seem to end well with Owens, even with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.

With the Wranglers at 6-5 and chasing a playoff spot, they've released Owens for what they're calling a "lack of effort both on and off the field." In a statement released by the team president and co-owner, Owens was said to be refusing to play in upcoming road games against the Nebraska Danger and Everett (Washington) Raptors. There was this, too:

"The proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for Mr. Owens was his no-show to a scheduled appearance at a local children's hospital with other Wrangler players and coaches. It is not the desire of the Allen Wranglers' organization to disappoint fans by having our most notable player miss a scheduled appearance."

Owens will also lose his ownership stake in the team.

When Owens originally signed with the team, it seemed like there was an agreement that he wouldn't have to play in all the team's road games, though the actual language in his contract is unknown. Maybe he had to play in these two particular road games. I don't know. But if a team wanted to get out of its contract with Owens, and thought it might help to make him seem like a bad and irresponsible guy, well, that fruit would be hanging pretty low.

Owens burned his bridges and I see a bad ending for this emotional weakling. I doubt he'd ever off himself with any dignity. Hell find a way to make a spectacle of himself up until the very end.

I wonder if T.O. will be the first Hall of Famer* that was kicked off an arena league team...

*assuming he gets into the HoF, of course

Apparently the HoF voters aren't supposed to vote for anything but a person's play on the field, attitude and off the field issues notwithstanding. If that's the case he definitely has the numbers to get in.

Yeah, doesn't exactly mean they listen. Plus the voters disdain for elite WRs as of late makes it less likely.

He needs to grow up big time. As he is nearly forty-years old. And has four children with four women or something like that. He is a joke unfortunately to others and himself.

Even when it comes to being irresponsible he's not any good. We've got people with 30 kids. He's obviously not putting much effort in the game.
