Saw the crawler while watching the Iowa-Northwestern game on ESPN.

More to folllow on ESPN, I'm sure.

Wonder if this has to do with the flap over him reaming the team for not making a big deal out of his 100th TD catch?

Whoa. That's big. They're hurting enough already.

I can't say I feel sorry for the Eagles, though. They knew what they were getting into when they signed him. He may be one of the top NFL receivers, but he carries a lot of extra baggage.

I had the misfortune of being at the Letterman taping about a month ago where TO was one of the guests.

They did a skit where a taxi ran over a mannequin wearing a TO jersey. The world would be a better place if they would have ran over the real thing.

At least Dave didn't cut him any slack. He tore into TO pretty good for being a late night comedy show.

Philadelphia Eagles controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens has reportedly been suspended indefinitely due to conduct deemed detrimental to the team.

Owens has also been battling a severely sprained ankle, which put his availability for this week's game in jeopardy. However, after missing Wednesday's practice, Owens was upgraded from doubtful to questionable and it appeared he would be ready to go.

According to 610 WIP in Philadelphia, though, head coach Andy Reid decided to suspend the enigmatic wideout for numerous comments he has made about the organization this week.

The radio station, however, did not report how many games Owens would miss, but it is certain that he will not play in Sunday night's key divisional contest against Washington.

I definitely agree. He will never be accepted there anymore.
Am I the only one to feel sorry for the eagles. I don't think they knew it would be this bad. I mean, look at Corey Dillon on the Pats. He had a big mouth when the bangles continued to lose, however, with the right staff and a winning team, he became a much appreciating player. The eagles were the best thing that happened to T.O. He is a fool trashing the best player he will ever play with.
I wouldn't think that any big team should want him and his ego. He might end up with another struggling team with a bad QB like he had is San Fran. He is a disgrace for the NFL!

2 things to add

1. He should have been forced to go to Baltimore seeing they had agreed on a trade with the 49er's first. Philly would not be going through this shit right now.

2. He was upset that the team did not recognize his acheivement on catching his 100th career touchdown pass. Can somebody post the "attention whore" picture on here for T.O



Where did everybody go?

Part of the problem here is that McNabb, a true team player and team leader is the best QB the Eagles have despite his nagging injuries. This means 'Terrible' Owens isn't going to get to make as many catches as he hoped for and staisfy his attention whoreing addiction.
I would suspect he will appeal his suspension to the NFL, with the assistance of the Players Union. I do hope the Commissioner does support the team and the coach. Problem is that T.O. is a star player to the league - when he plays to his expected level - that it could put the Eagles under pressure from the league and the Players Union to end his suspension after maybe 1-2 games. Meanwhile he hurts and insults his team, his coach, the team owner and the fans. I bet sports talk radio stations in Philly are only talking about this. I just hope that it doesn't turn racist.

This Eagles fan is inclined to agree with that assessment as well...he'll be on the market next year...I havent checked the official Eagles message boards yet since this happened, but I imagine everyone there is pretty much having a collective heart attack right now...

I have no problem with T.O.’s antics. For one thing, the Eagles organization and their fans knew exactly what they were getting when they signed him. And for another; T.O. is a proven success on the field. What he did in the Super Bowl was absolutely amazing, and showed a lot of heart. That being said, he’s a media whore. But so what? Big freaking deal. He’s a professional athlete in America for god’s sake, I mean are you guys really surprised that he has big head? I’m not saying he’s not a annoying, but lets put it into perspective, he’s not failing drug tests, he’s not getting arrested, and he doesn’t disappoint on the field. Sorry, but T.O. is not a role model. He is there for the sole purpose of entertaining the fans and in turn to generate revenue for the Eagles organization. Stop taking this so seriously, it’s just a game.

I think Favre is still a good QB. He just doesn't have any good players around him anymore. He's lost a Pro Bowl wideout (Walker) and a Pro Bowl RB (Green) for the season. And that's just the first two. It seems like every week there's another Packer running back or receiver being carted off the field.

To T.O....Good riddance! He may be a good wide receiver, but he is NOT a good team player. If he cannot work with the team and realize that it takes the TEAM to win and not himself only, then he just needs to quit the NFL altogether and pursue something that is not team oriented.

It may be just a game, but the participants IN that game should and ought to have respect for it. I was listening to a radio interview with Mike Ditka a few months ago when T.O. was holding out and Ditka flat out called out T.O. and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus as having "no respect" for the game of football and being examples of what's wrong with modern day athletics. When Terrell Owens steps out onto that field, he's not playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, he's playing for Terrell Owens. Call me a sap, but I'm of the school that believes that, as Herb Brooks said, the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the one on the back. If Owens never plays pro football another day in his miserable life, I wouldn't shed a single tear.

Has he really shown the game disrespect? How? And if I concede for a moment that he does show the game disrespect, it’s certainly no worse than the disrespect shown by other players. Again in the grand scheme of things, are his actions really that bad, are they worse than the guy who dishonors the game by taking steroids, or worse than the guy who gets into off the field run-inns with the law?

A couple seasons back when he had the “sharpie incident”, the thing I found the most surprising was that he gave the signed ball to a fan. I think the NFL was more pissed at him for giving the ball to a fan, than it was for him bringing a sharpie on the field. In that respect he showed more respect for the game than anybody had done in a long time. He had fun on the field and he shared it with a fan. The length the NFL goes to keep the fans apart from the action is ridiculous. I mean what’s the harm in letting the fans keep game balls every once and a while. I could see if the game was played with only one or two game balls like in basketball or soccer, but come on, seems like they have a new ball for every snap. So T.O. signed a ball and gave it to fan, big freaking deal, yeah I can see how he’s the plague of the NFL.  sarcastic

You CAN'T be serious! This guy does nothing but show dis-respect to his team mates, and the league! I get so sick and damn tired of his "me first" attitude. You play a team sport. SHOW RESPECT TO YOUR TEAM MATES. As soon as Steve Young was out of San Francisco, he went nuts. It's like he was waiting for Young to leave before he openend his yap. He used to be a talented football player. Now he's like Dennis Rodman...only on a smaller scale. It's generally people like him who were abused as kids at least mentally. And what does he do? Act out. His behavior would NEVER be accepted at any normal job. He'd be fired in a week. Calling a former team mate gay??? Are you serious? You can't possibly defend an ass hole like that! and as if that wasnt enough, he has to go out and trash McNab, too. "I got traded to the Ravens...I'm gonna pout and refuse to go!!!" IT ISN'T YOUR DAMN CHOICE! He acts like he's the grand emporer of the NFL. Well I got news for him, he is NOT the best player in the league. Not by far. If he EVER tried this shit with a quarterback like Young, Montana, Farve, etc....He'd never see the ball again. There used to be a day where crap like this wasn't put up with. You behaved like this, you were gone. Now days teams are so affraid of being called out in the media by these prima dona's, they just put up with it. If Owens tried this crap in the 70's or 80's, his team mates woulda beat the shit out of him.



And you wanna cry about the Sharpie incident??? Get real! Then there were the pom poms, and the ridiculous CRAP he did in Dallas. Do you condone that? Then there's mocking Ray Lewis. I'm sorry, but he's a spoiled 9 year old BRAT stuck in a man's body. And it's about time SOMEONE held him accountable. No one cried when Keeshawn Johnson was reprimanded by the Bucs. Where were you then?? I'll say it again. This has been a LONG time coming. And I hope the team let's him go. Fires his ass. I'm sure the Eagles would be happy to pay him to sit at home, so he doesn't have to be on the team charter from city to city. So he doesn't have to be in the locker room acting as a cancer to that team. Thank GOD the 49ers got rid of him. I'd have puked having to watch him on the 20th when I'm down there to watch them play. Talent or not, no team should EVER have to put up with HIS crap.
