Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens has been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. This stems from an interview on ESPN in which T.O. said he agrees with former WR turned commentator Michael Irvin that if Brett Favre was the Eagles QB, they'd be undefeated...a direct jab at Donovan McNabb.

I read some of the things he said, really uncalled for. It's about time to suspended this clown for a serious length of time, he has been nothing but trouble since he's been there. I'm only suprised that it took the Eagles this long to do it. You can't talk that way about the company you work for and not expect to get in trouble for it.

This is good for me because 1) I can't stand TO, never could and 2) I'm a Cowboys fan. Anything that is bad for the Eagles is good for me.

Here's a story on it

Bad decision by Terrell Owens to open his mouth.

Worse decision by Eagles front office to suspend him.

Really, he didn't say anything THAT horrible that warranted suspending the best player on the team. He got blasted for the Favre comment, but when it comes down to it, what he said was if they added a great player to the team, then the team would be better. OH MY GOD... imagine the chaos that would ensue if my favorite team, the Minnesota Vikings, actually implimented that strategy.

Add that to the fact that I'm in 2nd place in my main fantasy league and I have Terrell Owens on my team, and I am pretty pissed off :lol .

It wasn't just that, he also called the organization classless. You can only publically criticize your employers for so long before they strike back.

Besides, at this point I don't see how Favre is a better option than McNabb, but that's beside the point.

As A 49er Fan all I can say is :lol

And this :hide
Owens also was involved in a fight last week with former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas, who remains with the team as its "ambassador." Owens apologized for his comments about the organization in a brief statement on Friday, but he didn't apologize to McNabb or the team.

"The league has been notified by the players' union that they will be grieving our right to take that action," Reid said, "therefore there is nothing more that I can say at this point."

Owens summoned police to his house in Moorestown, N.J., late Monday because there were some people on his property. Owens said he wanted to be left alone, had no comment and would contact the news media when he did want to speak, police at the scene said.

Later, two pizzas were delivered to Owens home. Deliveryman James McDevitt said Owens did not answer the door, but a $5 tip was left on the door step.

$5 dollars :stu

Throughout this whole ordeal I admit that I have gained a new respect for Donovan McNabb. Being a Cowboy fan, I'm required, by law, to hate him, but it is getting very hard not to respect him for the way he has handled this whole situation. My hat goes off to him.
I actually rooted against the Eagles until they drafted McNabb (who got booed, of course). I don't think people outside of the Philly area realize how much he's done for that team. I wonder why not one Eagle defended McNabb through this entire thing. It kinda bothers me.

I saw some show about that on ESPN today (maybe it was PTI?), on why nobody on the Eagles defended him from TO's attacks. That's a good question, I don't really know why they didn't . :stu
