“It is what it is.”
That was Terrell Owens reply to Stephen A. Smith during his sit down interview on ESPN Tuesday. Owens was asked how he feels about Cowboys fans booing him on Sunday night at Texas Stadium.
I heard the booing live during the game, it was disgraceful. Wake up fans! Don’t you know you can’t believe everything you hear, especially not from the Cowboy haters over at ESPN. (Just ask this guy.)
You have never heard me bad-mouth T.O., and you probably never will. I believe he is an exceptionally dedicated player who lives for the game and has done nothing but devote his life to the sport. Yes, he’s outspoken and has strong opinions but since when is that a crime?
T.O. has never had trouble with the law. He is an upstanding citizen who loves his family, friends and his team. I’m not trying to portray him as a saint and I never said he was perfect. But I totally disagree with people who call him a ‘cancer’, it simply isn’t true.
Owens has the potential to be a hall of fame legendary wide receiver. This season his numbers are down, his receptions are low. I believe he has earned the right to complain.
In the extended interview with ESPN’s Smith, T.O. was asked “how much of it is the media, and how much of it is you?” And Owens, like the man that he is, took some of the blame. But he also went on to say that ESPN has its villians and has its heroes, and somehow he has fallen into the villian category. But Owens whole-heartedly believes hes a good person, in his words, “it depends on who you ask”.
Well ask me. I’m happy to share my thoughts. He is an amazing player and I’m proud to call him a Cowboy.
Numbers don’t lie.
I’ll never understand why the media won’t recognize him as the football player he is.
Hey T.O., just keep letting your aggression out on the field… let them FUEL YOUR FIRE! I hope you get record numbers in these last two games and close Texas Stadium with a bang! Then go on and continue that excellence in the playoffs.
They call it arrogance, I call it confidence. I’ll support you ’til the end #81!
Oh, and before I forget… extra butter please!
