    Terrell Owens is done talking to his position coach.


    T.O. said on his radio show Friday that his relationship with Dallas Cowboys receivers coach Todd Haley was ruined by a blowup this week. It began when Owens missed the start of Wednesday's practice because of an upset stomach, and Haley berated him for being late. Owens held his tongue then, but they later argued during a meeting.


    The story getting out seems to bother Owens the most because Haley vowed since training camp that all internal matters would stay behind closed doors. Owens spoke with reporters for 45 minutes Wednesday without ever mentioning any problems with Haley. But the incident was reported by several media outlets Friday before Owens gave his side of the story later on his weekly show.


    From now on, T.O. said, ''there will be nothing else, no other dialogue'' between him and Haley.


    ''There will be no more friendly nothing because I don't trust anybody like that,'' Owens said. ''I will go out and practice hard. I will respect him as a coach, and he should respect me as a player. Anything outside of that I am not going to be able to deal with.


    ''Right now, we are merely co-workers, and that's it,'' he added.

    I'm pretty sure Bart is just letting us know that T.O. is continuing to show his true colors yet again. [​IMG]

    I understand, and don't mean to be negative towards Bart's post, I guess I'm just so sick of hearing about this clown's every move breathlessly reported by the media, that I don't enjoy seeing more about him on this site. Heck, I come here as a refuge from all the crap that we're bombarded with on a daily basis.

    I agree with you, Burts. Did you watch the Dallas - Philly game? They even had a marker with Owen's name and number pointed at him when he was on the field! Talk about ridiculous. I've never seen them do that with another player, ever.

    It's like Chris Collingsworth said in reference to the Cowboys, "they wanted him, they got him."

    ESPN is now reporting that Jerry Jones is going to discipline the position coach. [​IMG]
