The Daily Shoutout: Owens won't play in IFL

Posted on: December 30, 2011 8:10 am
 
OPENING HIT: No way Terrell Owens will do it. No way in hell. No. Freaking. Way.

The ego of Owens won't allow it. I don't care how financially desperate he is. The ego of Owens will stop him from playing in the Indoor Football League because he'll see it as too far beneath him.

And it is. I'm no fan of Owens. I think he's a bit of an Uncle Tom who has thrown numerous players and organizations under good sized buses. I guarantee you there are people around the NFL who are laughing at the predicament of Owens and saying: karma is a bitch, eh Terrell?

But admitedly despite how Owens has treated so many people so poorly there remains an element of sadness about Owens even considering playing in some cheapened copy of football to make a buck. Owens was a great player. I mean, great Hall of Fame worthy player and here he is in serious talks with the IFL.

Yet again it won't happen. This is likely some sort of trial balloon by Owens to see the reaction and once he digests how most people are mocking this potential decision he'll back out. I could be wrong but Owens playing in the IFL just isn't Owens.

That ego won't allow it.

The Daily Shoutout: Owens won't play in IFL

Calling Terrell Owens an "Uncle Tom" is childish, baseless and ignorant. This is a sports website and there is no place for bigoted diatribe from any of the idiots who post that BS on this message board. It is really bad though when the writer who writes the articles uses such ridiculous 1970's terminology to defame someone's character who he doesn't really even know. Freeman and the rest of the you have a right not to like Terrell Owens, but acting like your any better than he is based on what you see on TV and read in the papers just shows pure stupidity.

Ex...Tom Brady cusses out his offensive coordinator. The Media: I have to give Tom Brady a pass because blah, blah, blah.
Terrell Owens cusses out his offensive coordinator. The Media: TO is trouble because blah, blah blah.

People don't know either one of them. Period. TO has plenty of friends on some of these teams where locker rooms were divided. There are divisive people all over the world. All I'm saying (in a lot of words) is being an "UNCLE TOM" has nothing to do with it.

Freeman, at times, you write like the idiot, that you MIGHT be.

Wow you did it again Mr. Freeman, you took a small story about an aging football player, sprinkled in a little racism and presto, you have another article that is out of touch.

This is ridiculous that you put this garbage into words.  Terrell Owens can do whatever he wants and if involves not playing in the NFL, his business.

If TO had hung onto more passes and was more of a team player, he would still be working on his hall of fame career.

you must be black to have those statements ready  and the white people who have help really need it after trying to make it in the world   where "others" just just keep buying jordans, making babies and driving escalades out of one bedroom project apartments with dropping out of school and never getting a job

How did he already use up all his money? He shouldn't have had to work again in life. If he wants to play for fun I don't see why people have to make a big deal about it. He should call up Randy Moss and Tiki Barber and try to get all of them on the same team.

Hey Avengers Girl - What trailer park did you crawl out from under?

That is the most racist, idotic and inaccurate KKK diatribe I've ever heard!!

Try reading something called a book and check your facts before posting!

My Research via DOJ and DSS are in stark contrast as of 2010-2011.

The Government currently allocates 67% of Welfare revenue to WHITES!!!

The Government also allocates or reimburses 63% Medicaid payments for WHITE PEOPLE!!

The Government also issues 62% of Unemployment Insurance to White People!

So wake up idiot - Poverty doesn't have a color and you may not have a brain!!

BUT IT'S PROBABLY HEREDITARY!!

It might also require humility, we'll see if he has any.

>>>And to the question, do Uncle Toms even exist anymore?  See Steele, Michael.

Why? Because he's an extremely successful man in the mainstream of American politics? A millionaire?

Or because he's a Republican?

>>>Uncle Tom is a term for blacks that give up or hide their ethnic or gender outlooks, traits, and practices, in order to be accepted into the mainstream—a so-called

I thought an Uncle Tom was someone who acted obsequiously toward whites.

Blacks would do better to give up their ethnic traits and practices and embrace the mainstream. Better for them, and better for the country which is going bankrupt paying welfare to 2/3rd of that community. That's not a racist statement - that's a verifiable fact.

All "African-Americans" should take a trip to Africa. Visit a Hutu tribe in Rwanda and say that they are a Tsutsi, or go to Kenya and say that they are a Kikiyu. The utter hatred and contempt they'll be subjected to by their fellow Africans will make their treatment in the US by officious cops seem like a cakewalk.

Freeman, Mike, my main man: you of all people must know that an "Uncle Tom" not only betrays a brother but does so TO THE WHITE MAN.  When did TO ever do that (except in the broadest, most implicit sense)?  (And, btw, this use of "UT" is entirely contemporary vernacular, not quite hewing to the character in Stowe's classic novel.)
