Nothing new with T.O. again..........
Nope. I love how Jones tries to cover things up. Hilarious. He tried to cover up the deal when Owens publicly blamed Parcells for re-aggravating his hamstring. He does not show up for practices and such. This is only the beginning.
For all the talk about how he needs to concentrate his effort on rehab of his hammy, TO is obviously not too serious or committed about HIS responsibilities. He has evidently been late for several of his rehab sessions and has now even chosen to be a no-show for one. This in addition to being late and missing important team meetings has led to the Girls fining him a meager $9500. Not much for a spoiled millionare twit........but still the beginnings of a “message” to the “Player.”
Now he is evidently sending out messages of his own that he’s so good that he does not need to practice in order to play, and that he is expecting the Girls to get with HIS program on this (contra to any common sense, contra to any NFL coach’s thinking except in rare extenuating circumstances.......... and totally sacrelig to Parcells with his philosophy of no preparing, no playing.)
TO certainly needs rehab alright, but he needs the type of rehab that sociopaths receive while in a well-padded room wearing white strapped uniforms (with or without a star).
Stretch better wake up before the 1st game of the season...........If TO is on the 53 man roster at that time, his $5 million is GUARANTEED...............For those that don’t get it, it's not solely by chance that TO has said that he will probably not be ready to play until the 2nd game of the season........By that time, he can thumb his nose at Stretch and Parcells, and either they dance to his music, deactivate him (ala Eagles) or release him.......and either way he makes out like a bandit. No, TO has never been known to use “drugs”.........but he NEEDS some. Certainly, he has thus far left a long trail of damage to many, who most likely have required drugs along the way in order to cope with the INSANITY.
Hey now...I'm sure Drew Bledsoe will have an easy time hitting that stack of videos in the endzone during the regular season. You know, the "10 years of tape?" Of course he doesn't need to show up.
Owens is so 2004. I wish the national media'd get over their crush on him. His story's just not interesting anymore--if it ever was.
You're correct that it's basically been suck on repeat for three years now.
Terrell Owens has finally pushed the Dallas Cowboys too far, drawing a $9,500 fine for missing a team meeting and a rehabilitation session and being late to an offensive meeting, The Dallas Morning News reported Sunday.
"That's our club business. That's going to be accounted for," team owner Jerry Jones told the newspaper.
The incidents occurred Friday, the team's final day preparing for a preseason game against San Francisco. The Cowboys beat the 49ers 17-7, making them 3-0 this preseason without Owens playing any of the games because of a hamstring injury that's also kept him out of 19 of 31 practices since the start of training camp.
Neither team officials nor Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, immediately returned calls to The Associated Press seeking comment Sunday.
T.O is an *******
I hope the fines pile up.
Its still an ongoing story up here that he cant manage to sell his house.
Forgive me if the numbers arent exact, but they are close here...
In 2004, he bought his house in Moorestown, NJ for 4.2 million.
He put it on the market in October of 2005 for 4.8 Million. Last month, after not receiving anything resembling a bite on it, he reduced the price to 4.0 Million.
Local real estate agents are laughing hysterically at him. The estimated value of the house according to many high value home experts, has been put in the neighborhood of 2.6 Million.
So, between the 2 million he lost last year from fines, etc, the 2 million less he is making this year (yes, he signed a contract for 2 million less than what he would have made playing for the eagles. And yet prances around like he won something) and now getting fined...he is making less and less money as the days go by.
Nothing would make me happier than to see him be financially broke, and have to actually do manual labor for a living. What I would give to see him doing hot tar roofing...or laying blockwork...
Man, do I hate him...
Can we all agree that TO shall henceforth be known only as The Hamstring!OK Hammy for short!
Owens should be let go and they should get Branch. We all know Owens is faking that hammy and milking the team for all it's worth. Or maybe they should keep him. LOL!
Straight from the horse's mouth
IRVING, Texas - Terrell Owens has never been one to shy away from the media.
So when the locker room opened up Monday here at Valley Ranch, Owens knew what was coming. He even jokingly asked team spokesman Rich Dalrymple to wish him luck as he approached the dozens of reporters crowded around his locker.
He knew what they were going to ask, and he didn't back down.
Owens immediately admitted to being fined by the club for missing a scheduled rehab and for being late to a team meeting on Friday, as was first reported on Sunday.
"(There's) really not an explanation . . . just overslept," said Owens, who missed yet another practice Monday because of that sore left hamstring. "I was late and those were the consequences of that. Not anything I tried to do intentional. It's not the first time. It probably won't be the last time.
"But, like I said, I'm trying to do everything I can to get back on the field, so it's one of those things that happens. I'm not perfect by any means. It's just one of those things that happened."
While head coach Bill Parcells and team owner Jerry Jones would not acknowledge the incident, they both denied a feud between Owens and the organization.
"Has it in any way affected relationships on this team, (with) teammates on this team, relationships between me and Bill, me and the coaching staff, Terrell and Bill, Terrell and the coaching staff? Zero," said Jones, who reiterated there is no rift between his head coach and star wide receiver. "None. Absolutely none. No rift whatsoever."
While the growing perception, mostly from national reports, is that Parcells is already growing tired of Owens' absence from practice, the head coach quickly shot down the notion that his wide receiver has been a problem.
"No," he said. "Absolutely not. Hasn't been a problem at all."
What Parcells has a problem with is the ever-growing attention this situation has caused. He smiled when he sat down for his regular news conference, seeing more than double the usual crowd.
"What's this, the Cuban Missile Crisis?" he joked.
But a few minutes later, when the number of T.O. questions reached about 15, Parcells finally tried to put the situation to rest.
"Here's the deal, the way I see this situation: At the end of the day I knew when we acquired this player that I was going to be the one that had to deal with," Parcells said. "I'm responsible to deal with everybody that we have on our team and that's what I intend to do, and what everybody else thinks, present company included, anywhere nationwide, all those chatterboxes, I don't care.
"I'm going to do what I think is best for the Dallas Cowboys and this organization and my football team, and whatever opinion anyone else has is totally irrelevant to my line of thinking because they don't have all the facts and I do. So I operate from a position of advantage."
Parcells would not discuss Owens' reported fine, but did say he handles fines the same with every player.
Jones even added that several other prominent players in the past have received fines, which are collected every year and donated to The Salvation Army.
"Some of the greatest names you can put on former rosters of the Dallas Cowboys have been fined for being late, missing meetings and also for rehab," said Jones, who was disappointed the information regarding Owens was leaked to the media.
Owens has now missed 20 of 32 practices since the Cowboys opened training camp in late July, and has not practiced since Aug. 19. But just as he has stated all along, Owens doesn't seem too worried about missing training-camp practices, or even preseason games. His focus has remained on getting ready for the season opener against Jacksonville on Sept. 10.
The question now, for both Parcells and Owens, is just how game-ready Owens can be if he continues to miss practice.
"I think I can get myself in good enough shape to play in a game," Owens said Monday when asked if he can be ready for the opener. "The things that I'm doing now, I'm kind of day-to-day. I feel like I'm getting better with the rehab sessions I'm doing outside. I'll start running a little bit more. So we'll just see what happens. I know it's improving. I'm just trying to get back as soon as possible."
But will it be in time to play?
Parcells said Monday he can't answer that question without seeing his receiver on the field. It's unlikely Owens will be ready for the preseason finale against Minnesota Thursday night (7 p.m. CDT) at Texas Stadium.
"I am going to have to see what I see . . . I am going to have to see where everybody is," Parcells said when asked if Owens can play against Jacksonville without practicing. "It's like any injured player. If you return a guy to practice and he doesn't look good . . . The guy doesn't practice all the time. You think I am going to insert the guy in with no practice? Are you out of your mind?"
Owens said Monday his goal is to get back "as soon as possible" and he believes he's doing everything in his power to get there.
"I know what I need to do, what I've done to get myself healthy," Owens said. "I know how my body responds. I know my body better than anybody else. Other than that, I feel like I'm doing above and beyond things to get back on the field, whether a lot of people know that or not. I'm doing everything. Sometimes I come in here late at night just doing extra treatment, getting in the hot tub, cold tub. Regardless of what everybody thinks, I'm doing everything I can."
Convincing "everybody" would be a waste of time for Owens. But if Monday is any indication, Parcells and Jones are convinced.
You guys need to understand, there really is no rift at all at Valley Ranch.. Each question the media feeds to Bill, the more unlikely there will be any problems with the two what-so-ever.
As for Jerry and Terrell, both have expirenced the pain of being outsiders, hated for their greatness, they go together like Burt and Ernie.
I really think this is going to be a long season for the cowboys because with TO you never know whats going to happen.
Everyone in GirlsTown is doing a dance........TO making light of everything, it's all "no big deal".......Jerry saying everything's hunkydory and that the coach is fully in charge.........Tuna breaking his last tooth trying to hold his tongue from letting TO AND Stretch both know what his feminine side really thinks.
This article is definitely worth your bathroom reading:
Typing what was said, and watching the video feed gives you two different opinions of this issue with T.O. and the Cowboys. The line that stood out to me was this:
Now, the way it reads as typed and the stuttering pause on the video feed confirmed for me that Parcells isn't exactly happy with this acquisition. Lets see if we can fill in that blank after "WITH"
i knew he was gonna cause trouble but i didn't know he would cause it this early. I can't imagine what he'll do when the season gets on its way
The players have been coming to Jones complaining that they are being too easy on Owens compared to the rest of the players. Yelling favortism. LOL! Too funny. Jones says he will fire the person who narked about the fine because it was suppose to be behind closed doors and Owens thinks it is a few of the players who narked. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SOAP OPERA. They must be getting ready to shoot the soap "Brokeback Mountain Cowboys"
I think if this keeps up the cowboys might finish last in the NFC East
