A letter from T.O.'s dot com

Did you see this?

It comes from, however he did not sign it. Who writes this stuff? Maybe it is third-person Terrell.

Terrell Owens would like to publically thank his fans for their continued, and unwavering support.

Despite all the negative publicity, the fans have remained objective, and optimistic. This positive reinforcement has inspired Terrell to work as hard as he can to improve on last years standout season. He plans to catch more balls than he ever has, and believes his on-the-field heroics will far outweigh any off-field criticism thrown his way. Through his actions, Terrell has continued to defy the negative speculation that has surrounded him, and he has proven himself to be a professional.

Despite all the rumors and innuendo Terrell has shown up to work on time, and from the moment he arrived he has given his all, picking up right where he left off in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for Terrell, this gung-ho approach led to the aggravation of a nagging groin injury. Realizing that this could have been perceived as a negotiating ploy, Terrell has done everything possible to accelerate his rehab.

Regrettably, recent events have unfolded in a way that may paint a negative picture of Terrell. This situation has mushroomed far beyond what should be considered adequate coverage, and Terrell has become the media’s favorite whipping boy. While this is discouraging, Terrell knows this is part of the business. To the fans he simply says that this was an isolated incident that was not premeditated. Terrell in no way wishes to be a disruption to the ultimate goal of winning the Super Bowl. In fact Terrell has gone out of his way to diffuse the tension by keeping to himself in all non-practice related affairs. During practice and work related situations he has been and will be attentive and responsive; Terrell only asks what every other worker in America asks for, respect and dignity.

Terrell will return to camp and continue to display the work ethic, and on-the-field dedication that has made him one of the world’s most elite athletes. For you the fan, and your continued support in the most difficult of times, Terrell plans to reward you with a season for the ages. Where small men succumb, great men overcome!

Last but not least Terrell would like to extend his appreciation for the continued support from all the members on Message Board.

How can anyone say that T.O. has become the media's favorite whipping boy? It was T.O. that put on the circus show from his home. It was T.O. that agreed to appear on every ESPN show last week. It is T.O. that should admit he is playing to the press for attention because being a good soldier in camp wasn't working toward the ultimate goal of more money.

If Owens planned to do everything in this note, there wouldn't an issue. But the bottomline still seems to be the bottomline for T.O. and as long as that is the case, there will be controversy.

Wednesday should be interesting.

T.O., in his interview with Chris Berman, advised that Andy Reid disrespected him by telling him to "shutup". Someone should tell T.O that he has been disrespecting people during his whole professional life, and probably before that. Does the name Garcia, Mariucci, McNabb, Baltimore Ravens et all ring any bells? The new media is as much to blame as anyone for the notority the man gets. Just keep his face of television and his name out of print and see what his reaction will be.
