Ban on TO discussions for 4 weeks?
 
Im personally so sick of TO this, TO that, I ask if anyone is in agreement with me that it would do all us good if we ban TO threads for 4 weeks. We all know there is plenty more TO to talk about, and quite frankly, Im already sick of it. If you wanna hear about TO, watch espn. TO will continue to dominate the headlines for weeks, and instead of talking about quality football threads like the Ravens vs Chargers game, everyone is just gonna blah blah blah about TO. I know its coming. Im sure even Dallas fans are sick to their stomach about it. So I propose that we ban TO threads for 4 weeks, and if anyone makes a thread, the mods lock it. What do you think? I respect the decisions of the mods, and I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, Im just proposing it.

I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Like it or not, we love Terrell Owens. You may not like what the man did on the field but when something new comes up such as a topic, you are going to click on it. If something new comes on TV? You are going to watch it. Of course afterwards you will complain about the "Same OLD T.O news, I am sick of him!!!!!!!111111oneone" but he's a modern day sideshow.

Who watched ESPN closely with Sal Paolantonio camped out in front of the Eagles Practice Facility like it was the second coming of the Munich Olympics strategy? I know I did for the most part. Of course he's more overplayed than those "retarder" Jon Lovitz commercials but face it, we are fascinated.

Also you are proving a point by creating *ANOTHER* T.O. topic. :roll:

P-L 09-27-2006 06:46 PM

I was thinking of making an ***OFFICIAL TERRELL OWENS THREAD***, just so we can limit the threads on him... :lol:

smittyjs 09-27-2006 07:18 PM

No, I <3 Terrell Owens

njx9 09-27-2006 08:16 PM

BBD: here's my take.

i'm going to refuse to post in any thread that mentions Owens. I'm going to refuse to say his name. i'm going to turn off the radio or television when they talk about him. i'm going walk away from any conversations about him.

he's simply not worth my time, and i'm not going to deal with every idiot's hype about his every movement. it's pathetic that people give a... well, whatever, that he stubbed his toe on the way down stairs, or think this recent stuff is interesting and worth talking about. but rather than giving them a muzzle, i'm just going to give a clear mesage that i'm not interested. if sportscenter continues it's obnoxious "TO-watch" reporting, i will stop watching ESPN. if the local radio doesn't stop talking about him, i'll listen to another station or put in a CD.

the problem is that everyone's willing to not say another word, but their not willing to actually DO anything drastic that might have an effect. if every person i heard say "i'm so sick of TO" on the radio today had just turned off the radio, the advertisers would have noticed and thus, the programming would have changed to reflect it. i'm just not going to sit around and be reactive anymore.

all that said, this will be the last thread about Owens that i post in.

jkpigskin 09-27-2006 08:29 PM

yo i have a question:

did TO live with his mother or grandmother in a 1 room house and the person living across from their house was acually his father that he never knew....

i heard this from somebody and would like confirmation



anway on topic, i personally am disgusted in TO, hes nothing wat you would want a sports figure to be depicted as, and blah blah.... hes just a pain to put it simply

PRETTY PLEASE!!!!!

frogstomp 09-27-2006 08:58 PM

Does it really bother everyone that much? Seriously?

You guys live sweet lives when hearing about someone on ESPN is your biggest problem. Honestly, I'm not bothered by it at all.

You have to ask what is there to like about T.O.?

diabsoule 09-28-2006 01:03 PM

You've never been more right, BBD. I can't stand this TO talk at all. I'm sick of hearing about him.

09-28-2006 01:18 PM

don't click on the thread if it bothers you so much...

yourfavestoner 09-28-2006 02:30 PM

I acutally think a TO thread is a good idea.

Splat 09-28-2006 03:12 PM

I started a stop the T.O. talk thread and everyone jumped all over me now somebody else does it and everone says good idea nice. :roll:

That's not what I asked at all. I asked why does it bother you so much. Honestly, I could care less if T.O. gets lots of attention, because it's either a) something stupid he did, and I enjoy laughing at stupid people, or b) something I can ignore. Meh.

The Great Jonathan Vilma 09-28-2006 03:54 PM

Splat 09-28-2006 03:58 PM

I don't like hearing about him 24 seven I live for football so I watch NFL Network,ESPN,FSN if there is a show on TV that is talking football I'am going to watch it. Then I tune in and they talk about T.O. the whole dam time it makes me not even want to watch I want to hear what is going on threw out the whole NFL not just what T.O. had for dinner last night and if it up set his teammates and coach.

Well, it makes money.

Anyways, I don't see how you can be so upset and still watch. If it bothers you so much, be like NJX. However, I still fail to see why everyone gets so upset about the news having a crush on T.O. Change the channel, stop reading, get up and go do something.

But no. Instead of that, we whine, and keep watching, and keep reading... and whine.

portermvp84 09-28-2006 04:25 PM

Yeah if I wanted to hear some whining I would go to my 10 year old sister.
