    On a night where many members of the Dallas Cowboys organization are sure to shine, a former member of the team was again denied his chance. Wide receiver Terrell Owens did not receive enough support to earn him a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A candidate must receive 80 percent positive votes from the selectors on hand, which apparently Owens did not...

    Here is video of Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Terrell Owens earlier this week saying that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is wrong to impose a four-game suspension on Michael Vick at the beginning of this season. Goodell said Vick could return to the NFL after serving 23-months in prison on dogfighting charges. Owens said it was "ridiculous" to impose such a suspension after a guy has served two years in prison. The reporter quotes Owens as having said that Commissioner Roger Goodell should "go and sit in jail for 23 months." . . . . (Watch Video)

    Here is video of ESPN's Darren Woodson talking about comments made by Terrell Owens regarding his release from the Dallas Cowboys. Owens reportedly said owner Jerry Jones was "persuaded" to let him go by his son Stephen Jones. Woodson believes Tony Romo, Jason Garrett and others also had a hand in persuading Jones to drop Owens. As a result, Woodson believes the pressure is really on, not only Coach Wade Phillips to produce this coming season, but also on QB Tony Romo since the perception in Dallas is that "Romo ran Owens out of Dallas." Owens has since signed a...

    In a growing feud that threatens to split apart the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, quarterback Tony Romo revealed yesterday that wide receiver Terrell Owens likes to wear women’s underwear. “He’s a real sucker for lacy things. You know, thongs, fishnet stockings, garter belts. He was wearing some when we lost to Pittsburgh, but not when we beat up on the Giants,” Romo said yesterday following practice. “I really think he just needs to get back to being a man for this team to continue to win.”

    Terrell Owens is done talking to his position coach. Owens said on his radio show Friday that his relationship with Dallas Cowboys receivers coach Todd Haley was ruined by a blowup this week. It began when Owens missed the start of Wednesday's practice because of an upset stomach, and Haley berated him for being late. Owens held his tongue then, but they later argued during a meeting. The story getting out seems to bother Owens the most because Haley vowed since training camp that all internal matters would stay behind closed doors. Owens spoke with reporters for 45 minutes Wednesday...

    IRVING, Texas Sep 29, 2006 (AP)— Now that police have decided Terrell Owens was hospitalized because of an "accidental overdose," the next big decision involving the Dallas Cowboys receiver is up to his coach, Bill Parcells. Owens practiced Thursday for the first time since breaking his right hand Sept. 17, and spoke briefly with Parcells for the first time since being hospitalized Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Parcells came away pleased, but not ready to declare that T.O. will play Sunday in Tennessee. "We'll just see how it goes," Parcells said. "I'm not sure where we're going to be on...

    Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens tried to kill himself by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after a friend intervened, according to a police report obtained Wednesday. Owens left the hospital late Wednesday morning, giving reporters a "thumbs up" but making no comment as he was driven away in an SUV. Publicist Kim Etheredge said in various interviews Wednesday with Dallas-area media that the police have gotten the story wrong. She said she was with Owens, who was having trouble because he'd

    IRVING, Texas - Six years ago, he became the villain. And he played that role to the fullest. In fact, two years ago, the most-hated player among Cowboys fans joined forces with one of the team's most-hated rivals. But now Terrell Owens is no longer on the other side. In fact, he's hoping to become a new Cowboys hero. While that will not happen overnight, what did occur with rather swiftly was the Cowboys finalizing a deal with the free-agent wide receiver and introducing him to the media Saturday afternoon here at the teams' Valley Ranch headquarters. Yes, it's official....

    A figure of speech, some say of the quarterback’s “black-on-black crime” remark. Others say it fans flames. Hear what fans have to say. During the lead-up to the world's biggest sporting extravaganza, the Super Bowl, Donovan McNabb fires off a salvo for the world to hear: Terrell Owens' criticism of his quarterbacking skills last season was "black-on-black crime." Black-on-black crime? A careless choice of words, given the daily tragedies in Philadelphia and other cities, or intentionally loaded? Or just a figure of speech? From the streets of Philadelphia, inside barbershops, and all day over the radio airwaves yesterday, people weighed...

    While most NFL teams slow down in their off-season, Terrell Owens' off-season is just heating up. Denver sources have told that the Pro Bowl wide receiver and his agent Drew Rosenhaus went to Denver on Monday to meet with Broncos officials at the house of coach Mike Shanahan. Shanahan wasn't present at the meeting, according to sources, but others in the organization met privately with Owens. Owens and his agent have been given permission to seek a trade out of Philadelphia. And teams such as Denver, Dallas, Tampa Bay and Miami have been linked to his services.

    The Terrell Owenization of the Democratic Party is pretty much complete. Selfish, media-hogging, and utterly unconcerned about the impact of what they are doing to their team, the Dean-Reid-Pelosi Party has thrown its ongoing collective temper tantrum for months now. And the media has shown up whenever they chose to flex their muscles in the driveway. I know, the image of any one of those three sweat-lathered and pumping iron is more than you should have to endure, so I'll get off the metaphor. But just as Owens finally wore out his welcome with the American public, so too the...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Sen. Arlen Specter is accusing the National Football League and the Philadelphia Eagles of treating Terrell Owens unfairly. The Pennsylvania Republican says he might refer the matter to the antitrust subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which he is the chairman. Specter said at a news conference Monday in Harrisburg it was "vindictive and inappropriate" for the league and the Eagles to forbid the all-pro wide receiver from playing and to prevent other teams from talking to him. He said, "It's a restraint of trade for them to do that" and "it might be a violation of...

    Specter: NFL may have violated anti-trust laws on T.O. By Amy Worden INQUIRER STAFF WRITER Sen. Arlen Specter today accused the NFL of potentially violating anti-trust laws in its treatment of Terrell Owens and said he is investigating the matter. Speaking at a news conference in Harrisburg, Specter said the NFL and the Eagles have effectively "blacklisted" Owens from football by forbidding him to play and prohibiting other teams from talking to him. "It's a restraint of trade for them to do that and the thought crosses my mind it might be a violation of anti-trust laws," Specter said. "The...

    Senator Specter Says T.O. Is Being Blacklisted By KYW's Tony Romeo Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Arlen Specter says he is looking into the Terrell Owens situation, saying the former Eagles receiver is being "blacklisted" from football. Senator Specter, like fellow Philadelphian Governor Ed Rendell, is a huge Eagles fan. As to the impact Terrell Owens has had on the Eagles’ season, Specter says he’s "madder than hell." But, he says, Owens has not committed a crime, and that the punishment being imposed on Owens is "vindictive" and "inappropriate." "And I believe a man or a woman has a right to undertake...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Terrell Owens' season is effectively over after an arbitrator ruled Wednesday that the Philadelphia Eagles were justified in suspending him for four games. Theismann on T.O. ruling Theismann I agree with the arbitrator's decision in this case. I don't believe the union should have the ability to make the Eagles play Terrell Owens at all. This was the right decision by the arbitrator, and it follows the Eagles' correct decision to suspend T.O. That said, we now should start looking at his future. Obviously he won't be with the Eagles next season. He walked across that bridge with...

    This is ridiculous. Report: Eagles WR Owens suspension to be reduced November 23, 2005 NEW YORK (Ticker) - Terrell Owens may get his wish after all. According to a report in Newsday, arbitrator Richard Bloch is expected to reduce Owens' four-game suspension from four games to one or two games later Wednesday. Owens was suspended four games by Reid for conduct detrimental to the team November 9. The NFL Players Association is seeking to have the suspension reduced and wants the Eagles to cut Owens if they have no intention of playing him again. The report indicates that the Eagles,...
