Out of that entire list, not a whole lot had to do with the 49ers. And even the things that did, are certainly not as big of a deal as you or anyone makes them out to be. So he signed a football. He grabbed some pom poms. He ran to the star. Big deal.
I mean look at some of the things on that list. He "mocked Ray Lewis by doing his dance?" Come on. Players do this all the time. He was in a "controversial skit" before MNF? Did he write the skit?
The media is obsessed with TO. Everything is completely blown out of proportion, and thus has created this image of a bad person. Oh well. You guys hate him, thats fine. I choose to like him because, as a 49er, dude was amazing and no where near the distraction that most of you claim. It wasnt until after he left that he became a big distraction....and even then, not nearly as big as he is made out to be.
you obviously don't watch much football. The media didn't make him do any of the retarded stuff he did. No one told him to question Jeff Garcia's sexuality? No one told him to belittle Mcnabb?? No one told him to whine about Tony Romo favoring Whitten over him? He was a good player no matter where he went but his bad attitude outweighed all of his talent. Not to mention the dude is a deadbeat dad!!! How could you root for a dude that does not take care of his kids??
To the things you say no one made him do what he did......
-No one told him to question Jeff Garcia's sexuality.....but they certainly were the ones who brought it up. TO didnt just come out and say it. An interviewer ASKED Owens if he thought Jeff was gay. He didnt have to be honest about his thoughts, but its not like he brought it up out of the blue.
-Belittle McNabb? You have a quote or proof of this happening? The only time a comment he made was determined to be about McNabb was because another teammate started saying the same thing a week later...only this teammate named names, while TO didnt.
-Whine about Romo favoring Witten? Again....can you provide a quote or a link that shows he said this? No you cant.
By the way, I found it particularly hilarious that you would make a statement questioning how much football I watch, and then proceed to list three actions that supposedly happened OFF of the football field.
