Chapter 17: "Oh, I get it, he's a perfect angel /sarcasm"

To make this hyperbolic straw man sarcastic statement is to completely miss the point.

No, Terrell Owens is not an angel. No one is.

The point is, metaphorically speaking, Owens is being given the death penalty for loitering, while other players are being given a slap on the wrist for serial killing. The crime isn't commensurate with the punishment. (Note: I don't mean to use the word "crime" to confuse you, as I have mentioned players committing crimes in the literal sense in other parts).

The amount of scrutiny and maligning should be reversed. Owens should be receiving the occasional eyebrow raise, while players who get DUIs should be receiving the 20 minute bash sessions and dozens of articles smearing their character.

But of course, that wouldn't sell. Players getting DUIs isn't outside the norm like celebrating touchdowns by running to the center of the stadium was, and it's not as sexy as manipulating a quote into a mean-spirited remark.

Nobody thinks about that, though.

So yes, like all of us, Owens isn't perfect. But no one else is held to the same impossible standard he is, and few, if any, have been as unfairly portrayed in the media.

No ones denying T.O.'s talent. He's a cockhole that thought he could challenge the system everywhere he went. Guess what? He was fucking wrong. That's why he HAD to play for Buffalo last year. No team serious about contending wants anything to do with this clown. In conclusion you should find someone worth idolizing to idolize. You look like a fool putting this much time into defending this dipshit.

What am I to do against such thoughtful and effective arguments?

No team serious about contending...guess the Eagles and Cowboys weren't serious, then?

Lol Chris, do you realize how ridiculous you look? Insulting someone you don't even know over the internet?

Good Article with proper prospective and sources. The venom & viciousness of the attacks on T.O. go way beyond dislike for disorderly locker rooms and dropped footballs. There is something deranged and insulting about the intensity of the anger directed at T.O. Mr. Owens is the media-hyped-scapegoat for athletes who appear ungrateful, unacceptable and unwilling to lay down and give it up.

I don't need to know him. He constructed a 17 page website defending a scumbag. That's all I need to know about him.

Are you kidding me Jordan? He single handidly destroyed both those teams. Hilarious that you would use that defense. Destroy any credibility with one statement. Whatever. You obviously don't get it. You and James that is. Coupla clowns.

Get real Alfred. Stop idolizing scumbags. Who gives a fuck about his silly stats. He's a me first loser. There's no debating it. So you can all act like I'm some sort of vicious animal all you want. Bottom line is you idiots idolize a loser.

Well, we're not acting like a vicious animal Chris. We're acting like you're an insignificant moron who can't read, nor has any effective insults. Come on, the gay insult? What, are you 10 years old?

Yep, he single-handedly destroyed the Cowboys to two playoff appearances in 3 years, including a 13-3 2007 season where they were the top seed in the conference and lost a close game to the eventual Super Bowl champions. What a cancer!

He also destroyed the Eagles all the way to the 2004 Super Bowl.

TO there come a time in life where you have to look in the mirror and own up to the things you created. Most of your problems in your professional life, you brought about.
