    Even if he is a dumbass or idiot, he talk for Mike Vanderjagt. That was nice to read, that not popular for black player to help white player..
    You don't make a mistake T.O.

    he stood up for Vanderjagt a little bit...

    NFL.com wire reports

    IRVING, Texas (Nov. 29, 2006) -- Terrell Owens isn't just sorry to see his pal Mike Vanderjagt go. He thinks the Dallas Cowboys made a mistake by releasing the wayward kicker.

    "I don't see what he did wrong to warrant him being cut," Owens said. "I hope it doesn't come back to haunt us. Whoever made that decision, I'm pretty sure they're hoping the same thing."

    they have been in touch since Mike got cut. go figure...

    Everything Terell Owens says and does is for himself and always very calculated. I sometimes wonder if he was influenced by Cassius Clay.

    Owens topped off a solid game against the Falcons by spitting in DeAngelo Hall's face during a first half confrontation. When asked about it Owens replied, " I apologize, but let's move on". Later on Owens torched Hall on a 51 yard bomb.

    Hall was probably still wiping spit from his eyes.

    Owens had a mean one-handed catch in the endzone for a touchdown from behind the Falcon's cornerback. I thought it was intercepted when I first saw the play.

    Made up for all the drops the guy has had recently, lol. [​IMG]

    Two observations about the Caste System media's coverage of the spitting incident:


    1. Every single mention of it, whether in print or on the air, has to also include a mention of Bill Romanowski spitting on the otherwise eminently forgettable J. J. Stokes a decade ago. There have been many spitting incidents in the NFL since then, but all involved a black spitting on either a white player or another black player, so almost all have been deposited in the system's Memory Hole. This is of course mandatory, as one of the many lies the media promotes is that black bad behavior, dysfunction and criminality does not occur on an appreciably greaterscale than it does among whites.


    2. Dan Patrick interviewed the almost unintelligible Michael Irvin on his radio show today (again). Irvin vehemently opposed suspending Owens because previous players had only been fined and it would be punishing "T.O. for being T.O." Mentioned as precedents were the Romanowski incident of a decade ago, and Sean Taylor spitting on Michael Pittman last year.


    As we have discussed before, T.O. is used as asort of scapegoat for all kinds ofdespicable behaviorby NFL players. Owens is a low-IQ, childish, incredibly selfish individual who can't control his childish and selfish impulses. But he's not a criminal, as best we know anyway.


    Now consider the above-mentioned Sean Taylor. After being drafted by the NFL, Taylor was charged with multiple counts of felony aggravated assault in connection with an incident in which he pulled a gun on three people. Also, after being drafted, quoting from a 2/28/06 Washington Post story:


    "Taylor had a tumultuous rookie season after leaving the University of Miami -- including a $25,000 penalty for skipping out on the mandatory rookie symposium, and $17,500 in total fines over consecutive weeks for unsportsmanlike conduct. He also received a one-game suspension by the team for his DUI arrest (he was later acquitted). In 2005 he earned praise for his maturity from coaches and teammates, then drew national attention for being ejected and fined $17,000 for spitting on Tampa Bay's Michael Pittman during a playoff game."


    Taylor of course served no time for the gun incident, and still happily plys his trade for the Redskins. Now really, who is the greater disgrace to what the NFL has let itself become -- Terrell Owens or Sean Taylor?


    For every pathetically defective character like Owens and Randy Moss who receive constant media attention both good and bad, the NFL has many hard-core criminals who receive almost no notice at all. Their crimes are airbrushed by the judicial system and forgotten by the media, while Bill Romanowski andMark Chmura (whowas acquitted by a jury) live on foreverin infamy.

    Imagine if Romanaowski had said that,there would be "A FIRESTORM of controversy" as the media loves to put it.

    Reggie Miller was also questioned about his thoughts concerning the incident. He said spitting was the -worst - thing you can do to someone.He said he would retaliateif someone spit at him. Patrick asked him if he would do so in the course of the game, even if it meant HURTING the team and being penalized. He answered that he would and wouldn't be critical of a player who did likewise.


    As I was listening I thought how easy it would be to exploit this aspect of black mentalitywich isso pervasive. At a critical point of a game, when a team would need some help from the officials to advance in the playoff's or win a Super Bowl, one would merely spit discreetly at a black player,who being unwilling or unable to control his emotions, would of course retaliate, commit an egregious foul, and lose the game for his team.

    Irvin had earlier agreed with Reggie Miller's assessment that spitting on someone is the worst insult imaginable. Irvin said he would 'go after' whoever spit on him, regardless of the consequences. Dan Patrick asked Irvin if he would do so during a playoff game, knowing he would be ejected and hurt his teams chances of winning the game. Irvin said, "Without a doubt," because if he loses 'respect for himself as a man,' he is no good to the team as a player.

    IMO just more of these guys putting themselves and their respect above the good of the team. On the other hand, I'd be livid if a black player spit on a white and the white player did nothing, so...

    If your head is in the game you walk away. Look what happened to Zidane, that's the last thing he will be remembered for. Irving is just being the idiot fool we all know and love.... [​IMG] [​IMG]
