    I'm not going to buy it.... I don't buy or read books...

    BUT... I think that TO is right about a lot of things. Including how the Eagles are a piss poor management, how Donovan is NOT a good leader and how he rightly deserved a bigger contract.

    ...anybody wanna debate me on those issues?

          :D And vise versa.

          I don't like any of these so called "biographies", even by players that I like. And TO is definitely not one of those players.

            everybody knows he should've asked for a bigger contract in the first place. same with all the other holdouts. that's my only problem with him.

              Books are already bad enough, what more a TO book.

                I normally would just laugh but i'm re-reading 1984 and can't comprehend why so many people don't read consistently? I mean people would rather watch Baseball than this? 1984 is one of those books that if you haven't read you don't count as an adult.

                  I don't think he deserved a bigger contract. He had just signed his current contract 1 year previous, did he not expect himself to have a good season? He should have been more angry at Drew Rosenhaus than the Eagles for getting a backloaded contract with all the big money on the last years of it.

                    1984 I read that in High School, it was boring just like all other books. I graduated College last spring and haven't read a book since then, and I really am not planning to until I get old.

                        In what way is Eagles management piss poor? They haven't had problems like TO in the past. Donovan is a fine leader, TO was out of place trying to challenge him. It's TO's fault he signed the contract. He should have asked to get more money in the early years of the contract rather than the later years. TO is an idiot, he should stick to playing football and not writing books.

                            Terrell Owens was underpaid if you compare his contract to other top WRs. Fact.

                            I'm not gonna argue on who he should blame, but the fact of the matter is that he was underpaid.

                            Here's a guy who broke his leg during the season and EVERYONE said there was no way in hell that he would be able to come back in time for the Superbowl. Doctors simply told him it wasn't possible. Here's a guy that rehabs like a mad man to get back to playing shape and even when doctors and everyone (who cares about him) tells him not to play... to not risk the chance of reinjuring himself... to not put his career at stake, yet still goes out there and ends up being the best player on the field for the Eagles. He risked it all to be out there to try to help his team win the SB.

                            When any employee goes above and beyond in their work, puts their career on the line, puts their health on the line, puts everything at stake and does an amazing job, is it not right for management to reward that employee? Is it not deserving of a promotion? Is it uncalled for for that worker to expect more from management? Is there no reciprocation, no appreciation, no acknowledgement or bonus or nothing?

                            You better bet your ass that if TO had sustained a career threatening injury that the Eagles would've cut him faster than you can say good-bye.

                            TO deserved more from the Eagles front office. TO simply wanted to renegotiate a new contract. The Eagles did it twice before for Donovan. Why not for TO?

                                Again if Owens didn't like the contract he could have chose not to sign it. He decided to go to Philadelphia, and he decided to sign that contract.

                                As for playing hurt, back in the old days it was extremely common. I believe it was Merlin Olsen who played with a broken leg. If TO was able to play he should, he's the only one who can make that call. I assure you that is not going above and beyond his duties. Any respectable receiver would have done the same. If Jerry Rice fractured his back he would probably still try to get onto the field. Also playing hurt, qb's do it all the time? Why shouldn't receivers. McNabb had a sports hernia all season but didn't sit out. And you still call him a bad leader? TO was causing problems ever since the superbowl. The reason he didn't get a new contract was because he was making the whole thing into a media circus. He has no discipline and showed no respect for his quarterback and coach. He was a locker room cancer, and Philly is much better off without him. Football is a team sport, one person is not more important than the team, and football players understand that. If you can't play, don't expect to get paid. What if TO had a career ending injury? Boo Hoo he can go live in one of his mansions and take it easy for the rest of his life. TO was just plain greedy, and lashed out at everyone even though it is only his fault for signing that contract.
