Hidden: T.O.'s not the bad guy the eagles are: why does everyone hate T.O. so much the eagles are the babys here. If t.O. would just get a new agent everything would be fine. But the eagles are a bunch of girls. Donavan needs to stop trying to get everyones sympathy and play football. Everytime something happens he cries for the race card. He needs to suck it up and play the game. Cause whether he realizes it or not he revolves around the game and not the other way around. Pease out sports fans!

Holy shit... plural baby= babies The proper puctuation at the end of a question is a question mark (?). If the eagles are a bunch of girls, you my friend, are a chauvinist. Every time is actually two words, although, I don't really like spaces either. Pease out? Is that supposed to be peas, or peace? I wonder... By the way... GYOFB

The Babys have a couple songs I like, including the classic power pop number "Everytime I think of You." John Waite sure can sing. He's incredibly strong, too; I once saw a video of him shattering a public telephone handset in a fit of loneliness.

Pizzpoor, delivering as promised. I hope pizzpoor dies soon. Hating hate that much is a waste of good hate, and since all hate is bad, then... um... where was I? PP, what in the world would motivate you to make that comment? Percentage of Spo-Fites offended: probably 98% (ballpark). Percentage of Tyrell Owens offended: 0% (since he will certainly never read it). Do you really have so little regard for the people on this site? What did we ever do to you?

Get real, TO is in the same mold as M Irwin, K Johnson, R Moss- all are so self centered that they aren't concerned if their team wins as long as they get their due. When are pro athletes going to realize that they are only part of the Sunday entertainment scene and really don't contribute much to the betterment of society.

King Alfred??Go back to the other side of the pond and stay there. T. O. Is not the bad guy? Where the hell have you been keeping your head? up you a-hole or what? He destroys the San Francisco 49ers and cries it was not his fault. Then Donnie talks the Eagles into taking a chance on T.O. and when McNabb doesn't throw T.O. the ball enough he strats to cry and says that it is all McNabbs fault they lose. McNabb breaks a bone and T.O. says he is a baby? What the hell is that? The problem with all of this is that these "Professional" athleats are over paid and over glorified. They should all have to go to work for a living for a year or two. The only athleat in the past 10 years I have any respect for left the sport to go and fight for what he believed in. Long live the Tilman memory. T.O. needs to grow up and become the man he thinks he is!

Get real TO is in the same mold as M Irwin who is this m Irwin you speak of I know it's not the great Michael Irvin former Cowboy great. If so get your facts straight Mike never cried after he got the ball down to the 1yd line and then watched Emmitt take it in. No he was always the first one over to congratulate him on giving the Cowboys another TD. He was also the leader of the Cowboys in their championship days worked harder than anyone out at the Ranch and the day he didn't get a catch against Arizona that ended his consecutive games with a catch streak he was more concerned with the fact that we didn't win. So as long as you live never compare a champion like Mike Irvin with anyone without championship rings or the true heart of a champion.

They should all have to go to work for a living for a year or two. these people have worked their entire lives to get to where they are. They are in alot better shape than your on your couch ass. just because these guys get paid to do something that you consider a game it is a job to them. they stay in top shape year in and year out for over a long period of time. people need to stop crying because there dreams of playing ended the day the coach figured out you where a punk who couldn't take a hit

If you've made it this far, congratulations! But now we'd like to quiz you on what you have learned (no scrolling back up cheater): 1. Eagles = a. babys b. girls c. all of the above 2. If something happens, who cries for the race card? a. Drew Rosenhaus b. T.O. c. McNabb 3. TYrell is in the dictionary a. True b. False c. Maybe? 4. The american educational system is clearly _________ a. underfunded b. way too focused on geography bees c. leaving a lot of children behind

a, c, c, c? I like number 4 -- far, far too many children are being left behind.

posted by bperk at 04:01 PM on March 17

I missed one, is that an A or B or is there a curve? It's Terrell, not Tyrell. Not a big fan of him, but I do respect his talent. I can't say much about the way he handles himself off the field. Maybe, just maybe, he will eventually learn some humility one day. The big thing I like about this place is the stimulating, intellectual conversation.

M Irwin may have take a hit over the midle, but in real life he wasn't so dedicated. TO has never produced when it counted and your folk hero MI was lucky to have a Troy and an Emmient when he wasn't asking for a fee to speck at the Texas hall of fame. MI or the rest couldn't and didn't hold a candle to Drew Pearson and other of the truly great Cowboys. Championship rings don't make you a CHAMPION.

posted by Trkdad at 07:21 PM on March 17

Terrell Owens is an ass let's face the facts. He has managed to pull us into his Dennis Rodman like world and we like moths to the flame follow all the stories. He is unlike many of his cohorts who do act professional on and off the field. Terrell is going to get more airtime, more money, more publicity than many NFL players like Warrick Dunn who in my opinion deserves 10 times the recognition of a Terrell Owens, just on his humanitarian effort alone, but because of guys like Terrell, Warrick Dunns on and off field accomplishments tend to be somewhat overlooked. This coming from a SuperBowl Champions Pittsburgh Steelers lifelong fan. I could've mentioned Big Ben or The bus, but Dunn story intrigued me just a little more.

Now that this post has been moved off the front page I would like to rant. I will not mention the football players name or initials because I bet he's the kind of asshole that sits at home and googles his own name to see how many people are talking about him. He probably thinks any coverage (good or bad) is better than nothing. I think the best thing that could happen to sports is to forget the idiot ever existed. There is no I in team you f'n jerk. When it comes to teamwork, it is essential in football. You need a QB to throw you the ball and a frontline to protect that QB and a defense to keep the opposition from scoring more than you. To think you deserve to make so much more money than your teammates is ridiculous. I can't deny that he has talent but with that f'n attitude he doesn't deserve to play. Philly made it all the way to the big game without his help. They didn't lose until this schmuck came back into the lineup. Yes it did take some guts to comeback so early from injury but to then turn around and put all the blame for losing on everyone else, give me a f'n break. I hope he doesn't get picked by any team for at least two seasons so he has to sell his cars, house, and everything else so he can gain some appreciation for the game, teammates, and everything it has given him. wingnut, I'd like to apologize for my knee-jerk reaction to your post. I love SportsFilter and hate to see it tarnished by having so many damn posts about this pile of pig dung.
