Owens Apologizes and Wants to Come Back
ABC News ^ | Nov 8, 2005 | ROB MAADDI

PHILADELPHIA Nov 8, 2005 — Terrell Owens has apologized to Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, quarterback Donovan McNabb, the team's owner, the team's president and fans.

He read the statement outside his house in Moorestown, N.J., a day after the team said he would not return this season.

"I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alientated a lot of my fans and my teammates," he said.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Owens was making a public apology in hopes of returning to the Eagles this year.

Owens' brief but tumultuous time in Philadelphia ended Monday when the All-Pro wide receiver was told not to return to the team this season.

"This decision is a result of a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time, during which Terrell had been warned repeatedly about the consequences of his actions," Reid said.

Owens was suspended for Sunday night's 17-10 loss at Washington, and will remain suspended for three more games without pay. After that, the Eagles plan to deactivate him for the rest of the season.

Though he's perhaps the best wideout in the NFL, Owens caused far too many distractions with his selfish behavior.

"We gave Terrell every opportunity to avoid this outcome," Reid said....

At a news conference on his front lawn this afternoon, Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver Terrell Owens, accompanied by his agent Drew Rosehaus, demonstrated his inability to put toothpaste back in the tube or to understand how it got out of the tube in the first place.

Film at 11.

Owens has made some really dreadful decisions, starting with taking on Rosenhaus as an agent and continuing with listening to all the idiotic strategies that Rosenhaus has suggested to him. He is going to find that he pissed all over his meal ticket and nobody wants to take on his contract or his baggage.

The Eagles reiterated their intention to dump this A$$hole and I hope they stick to their guns.

ESPN just reported that the Eagles under no circumstances will take him back.

We'll see...

""I fight for what I think is right. In doing so, I alientated a lot of my fans and my teammates," he said."

IF you were right it would NOT have alienated neither fan nor teammates. This is not apology and TO sux.

A different article on Owen's apology stated his apology to McNabb was something along the lines of "I'm sorry for anything I said that may have offended you"...as if he wouldn't have a clue what he said that might have been offensive.

Later, two pizzas were delivered to Owens' home. Someone answered the door not Owens and gave deliveryman James McDevitt a $5 tip. McDevitt said he left the tip on the door step.

How can you tell when you're widely despised? When even the pizza guy won't take your tip!

Drew is freaking out because he knows when T.O. signs his next contract, it will be for close to minimum wage and there will be all kinds of comparisons of "here's what T.O.'s making this year playing for team X. Here's what he WOULD have made for the Eagles". It won't exactly reflect well upon Drew's skills as an agent.

The T.O. saga to "Hall & Oats lyrics. he he

T.O.:

Spending all my nights, all my money going out on the town
Doing anything just to get you off of my mind
But when the morning comes, I'm right back where I started again
Trying to forget you is just a waste of time

Baby come back, any kind of fool could see
There was something in everything about you
Baby come back, you can blame it all on me
I was wrong, and I just can't live without you



The Eagles reply:

Easy, ready
Willing, overtime
Where does it stop
Where do you dare me
To draw the line

You`ve got the body
Now you want my soul
Don`t even think about it
Say no go, yeah

I, I`ll do anything
That you want me to do
And I`ll do almost anything
That you want me too, ooh yeah

(CHORUS)
But I can`t go for that
No (no) no can do
I can`t go for that
No (no) no can do
I can`t go for that
No (no) no can do
I can`t go for that
Can`t go for that
Can`t go for that

In a word T.O., NO! IF the Eagles are STUPID enough to believe this, they get EVERYTHING THEY DESERVE. If I were McNabb and they let him come back, I'd quit.

My guess is a certain sports agent sat down with his client and showed him just how much his four game supension was going to set back the bling account and also how his market value in the NFL just took a massive hit now that everyone knows he's a royal pain and TO took a long hard look at the abyss and said I better make nice.

Hey, maybe TO and Barry Bonds can get together and compare notes on how they made friends and influenced everyone to their guts.
