Pro Football Hall of Fame and its voters are MUCH more petty than Terrell Owens.

Executive director Joe Horrigan said Owens will not be introduced at both the Gold Jacket Dinner Friday, Aug. 3, and Saturday’s induction ceremony. Instead, Horrigan said the Hall of Fame will mail Owens’ gold jacket Saturday morning.

"There's no reason to bring him up as an individual," Hall of Fame executive director Joe Horrigan told Clark Judge of the Talk of Fame Network. "He's not here."

According to the Talk of Fame Network, Horrigan did say, however, that when the entire 2018 class is referenced as a collective unit, Owens’ “name will be included.”

I don't see any reason to some kind of Last Roll Call if he's not going to be there. The article said it's unprecedented for any living inductee to skip the ceremony. And why is he doing it? Because he had to wait two whole years past his first eligibility? Screw him. They're not pretending he doesn't exist, but they're not going to introduce him individually when they know he won't be there. It's fine.

The writers f*¢ked him, no doubt because they didn't "like" him and that's wrong when his numbers are that superior to everyone but Jerry Rice.

 

The Hall want to use his face and name to make money as much as broke ass T.O. wants to make money for himself.

 

It's more glaring as he was put in after the dude who we don't name, got in and that dude, whose name rhymes with "Darvin Garrison", had inferior numbers (Rec. yards, TDs, Y/catch), and "likely" killed a dude.

 

As I said before, T.O. doesn't seem to be friendly with former teammates, so finding someone outside of his agent to induct him would be an issue, unless Steve Young wanted to take that bullet to honor him only to be criticized by T.O. days later.

...and there's part of the difference between a Hall of Fame and a really fancy stats ledger.

T.O.'s almost certainly not the only friendless arsehole in the Hall.

A HOF caliber wide receiver having to wait two whole years to get in???

 

That's outrageous!  That's unconscionable! That's... no, wait... I'm sorry, that's just how it pretty much works for every one not named Rice.

TO is the receiver who got F'ed as he was better than Darvin Garrison

 

And whose the next guy to Rice, after Rice?

It ain't Darvin Garrison.

And who is the CEO of the Hall?

David Baker...the man who ruined the Arena Football League

Baker is a former football player and has sons who have sued a lot. Sam Baker was part of the EA Sports case.

In Baker also plead guilty to forgery. No ppl

 

An attorney who fought Baker years ago is well known today.

We all do realize that the Hall of Fame is nothing more than a dumb museum, right? 

 

All this “outrage” over TO not going is so stupid. I wouldn’t want to waste a day of my summer in Ohio, either.

 

 

Who cares? :censored: the NFL.

Yeah, I'm not sure what the problem is. Owens decided to be a petty jackass, and the HOF decided to be a petty jackass back.  It's a wash... move on.

I don’t feel pity for TO, he wanted to be petty and not show up, and do his own thing. His ego has always been his biggest enemy and it’s never going to change.

I’m not sure the HOF is being petty.  He’s still a HOFer.

 

And lots of sure-fire HOFers have to wait. Cris Carter for example.  TO is being petty.  Not sure what else the HOF should do.

Yeah, the writers and voters hate receivers.  The writers and voters also suck.

Writers pretend like they all didn't show up to TO's driveway to watch him do crunches.

 

A lot of media people made a lot of money off of him. They should be less dickish.

Sports don't really matter, so there are only so many opportunities to occupy some moral high ground.
