Go Eagles! Play the Rocky Song!"
I am a big Cowboys fan, so I am glad they did not suspend him...I also think that other players know how to yank his chain to get him to over react....$35k is pocket change for him. He will sulk for a couple of days then when the next media spot light turns on, he will be there.
Terrell Owen $35,000.
Disgusting Lugar on field -- 10 yard penalty!
I'm a big Cowboys fan, and a lot of their success this year is due to T.O.
Having said that, GROW UP, Terrell.
That's right.... It's not his fault, the mean players on the other team just made him do it.
Owens plays spit end, doesn't he?
Spit End ha ha lol
I'm a Cowboys fan, too. But TO is not conducive to cleaning up their image.......
eye for an eye
i say he gets a lugie in return
Eagles will Destroy Boys!
I think the spitting goes on a lot more than the refs and the cameras ever show.. Disgusting as it is.. low life bustards..
"Nice game, pretty boy!"
DeAngelo Hall wanted him to be suspended from playing. There have been a few incidents of players spitting on opposing players, and their punishments were a fine. Not condoning what he did, but wny should it be any different with T.O.?
No way they were going to suspend TO for the Iggles game. The NFL has had this date circled on their calendar for months, no way they were going to jeopardize their Christmas Day spectacle.
I don't condone the spitting at all....he is an important part of the team right now and he is needed to get along in the playoffs...personally I think he is a clown. maybe the guy he spit on should have cleaned Owens clock right there...he didn't ,so Owens got fined $35K.I don't know aobut you but to me that is a lot of money...hopefully he will think before he pojects spit the next time..
More people will see Eagles-Boys on Christmas day than that last Super Bowl between who and who?
