You all knew this was bound to happen.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...es-owens-jackson&prov=ap&type=lgns

But Jackson said Owens' suspension without pay for four games and deactivation for the rest of the season is "much too severe for the charge"

The civil rights activist said the level of punishment could have been warranted if Owens had been caught shaving points, selling drugs, carrying a gun or fighting fans without sufficient restraint.




Translation: The NFL should never suspend black people.


How many would put his/her life savings on a bet that Jackson would have kept his mouth shut if TO was white?

Just another prime example of JJ and the racist douchebag that he is.

He said that the Eagles showed a lack of class. For this he was given the boot for a whole year? Yea, its a little too much if you asked me.

I think JJ did exactly what he intended to do by ranting on this.

He had me going "Oh, HE's still alive?"

Here we go again, typical Jesse Jackson waiting in the wings until something happens to a black sports figure, celebrity or whatever. He doesnt give a damn how severe the crime/wrongdoing is, its always a race issue with him.

He makes me sick. I wish this lunatic would get a clue.

i wish someone with balls like me would be NFL president. i'd love to make a statement saying "Jesse Jackson has been suspended the rest of the year, too".

might actually make ESPN interesting for a day or two.

Where are the "attention whore" pics when you need them? Mr. Jackson has no shame, looking for free media coverage wherever he can find it.

Can't say I'm surprised, David B, to hear this from you.

He was suspended because of his overall poor and insulting attitudes and behaviors towards his team-members and his bosses.

It's just like any other business.

Let's say you go to work one day, insult all your co-workers -- let them know they all suck, you're better than them -- and then do the same thing to your boss and his boss, and their boss.

Would you expect them to give you a slap on the wrist, or send your ass out the door?

You act as if TO was simply critisizing his team -- no, he was insulting them. There is a wide difference between insulting and constructive criticism.

TO has been nothing but a problem, off and on the field for a long time. This was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I'd have more respect for Jesse Jackson if he stated the punishment for the two Carolina Panther cheerleaders was too severe. Now that was going too far. Ray Lewis can kill somebody, and the NFL doesn't care. Two cheerleaders dike it out and get canned...

The offences he mentions would be enough to get TO arrested. not to mention fired and banned for life from the league.

From the web-article:

Ralph Nader, a consumer activist and former presidential candidate, has already called for the suspension to be rescinded.

Apparently Jackson isn't the only loony here. What does Ralph Nader know about the NFL and who cares what he thinks on this issue?

That, and the fact that he refused to apologize for it, got in a fight with a former team member in the locker room, insulted the quarterback of the team unfairly, and a bunch of other stuff.

This isn't the first time that Terrell Owens (why the hell do we have to grant him superstar status by giving him his own name?) has acted like an idiot. In fact, he has a history of it. The suspension may be an instance of making an example of someone (and all the more power to the Eagles for doing it - maybe it'll make all the prima donnas in sports think twice about spouting their mouths off), but it's hardly unjustified.

The guy gets paid X million dollars per year for 6 months of work (or play), and he goes around insulting his employer and his collegues, and all in public to boot. That fits my definition of an absolute moron.

If I had that job, I would shut up and do whatever I can to keep that revenue for a few years and retire by the age of 30. After retirement, then you can write your scandalous memoirs.

Frankly T.O. got what he deserved. I wish there more teams like the Eagles who say "enough". Owens needs to be taught a lesson about consquences of ones action.

I agree but that requires a certain amount of intelligence.
This is a man who has been praised all his life for being a great athlete and probably never had to work hard at anything off the football field. I am sure he was spoiled by coaches throughout high school, college and even in the NFL. He's had money and pu$$y given to him just for being a great athlete.
People need to stop having such high-expectations of these spoiled brats and look at them as nothing more than entertainers. Sure there are some smart guys that pass through the NFL and NBA but intelligence isn't a requirement to be successful in this arena.
It really disappoints me that Jessie Jackson would even waste any of his time talking about some damn athlete.

Well, if we're going to talk about Owens then I'll say this. He's a man of contradictions. He can't talk about his grandmother, who raised him, without some tears. He works very hard at his job. He is good to his employees and friends (a friend of mine here in ATL occasionally works as a bodyguard for him) and he's a genuinely talented guy.

He's also got a severe case of diahrrea of the mouth, and can't seem to grasp the concept of loyalty or honoring a contract. He believes that he should not be held to account for his own actions, and proves it with every new situation he generates. Oh, and he's fairly self-indulgently racist.

I think he needs to get fired and the league needs to understand that he's a problem child and let him sit out a season before someone hires him again. Perhaps that'll show him that he's not indispensible.
