T.O. has always been quirky, but this seems odd even for him.

Owens, who said he has let the Hall of Fame know of his intentions, added he will announce "where and when" he will celebrate his induction at a later date.

Good. Always figured he’d be one of worst guys to go into HOF with, would try and make it all about him.

He's going to sell tickets to some kind of a celebration of himself party, count on it.

To ##### all that time about not getting in and then to skip the ceremony is ridiculous. TO is an idiot.

Is he the first to skip out of their own induction (other than those inducted posthumously -- but they had a good excuse).  I don't see him skipping just because he doesn't want to do the public speaking part.  I would love to see the hall just unveil the bust, point to it, say "T.O... That concludes our ceremony, thanks for coming.  Try the veal."

They should totally "Ronaldo" his bust on purpose.

It would not shock me if Owens made plans to speak someplace else (for money) at the same time and want the HOF to play it on video at the induction ceremony.

I think we're missing out on a train wreck of an acceptance speech. He's an emotional 15 year old.  It would have been great.  :angry:

1) He should have been a first ballot HoFer

2) This is a brilliant move by him. Everyone is talking about him now and everyone will be talking about him during the ceremony.

A "me-first" guy without a ring so I see no reason to make him a first ballot guy just based upon him coming along at the right time to benefit from the stats explosions due to passing rules.  I do not see the brilliance of him reminding folks of his personality.  Most folks will be speaking of him in negative terms, but even if the opposite were true how is that brilliant, how does it benefit him?  Do you think this somehow makes him more marketable?  To me it is just a footnote on the man.

 

Please explain what I am missing and be gentle if you can, I am sometimes oblivious to the new world order of social media and whatnot so I sometimes need remedial training.

He was, without question, one of the greatest WRs ever to play the game.

He was a clear first ballot HoFer and was denied because people didn't like him. That's a B.S. reason that amounts to nothing more than a school girl grudge.

While I agree with you, to play devil's advocate, he got dumped by multiple teams, was a me first diva and three ring circus, and never won anything. Five teams were thrilled to see him go, another had a trade reversed (BAL), and yet another cut him before he ever played (SEA). He was universally not liked by many people anywhere and some will say he was a stain to the shield. One of the greats to suit up at receiver on the field, but a walking PR disaster off of it. That all played into him having to wait a couple of years, justified or not.

I know I would take Rice, Hutson, Moss, Warfield, over him.  I would be quite comfortable taking Harrison, Allworth and Sharpe over him, not to mention Calvin Johnson, Steve Largent, and Larry Fitzgerald.  Others may differ.  There are total stats in a pass happy era, and then there are guys that lifted their teams to championships.  His teams were not without accomplishment, and I do credit him somewhat for maybe elevating their play.  I also note that he had a good game in his one chance at a championship.  Still no rings and a constant distraction.  That said I don't see the slight in him not being a first ballot guy in an era of ballot backlog.  To some this is a big issue, to me, not so much either way. 

What I was really interested I was your take that him missing what for most would be a seminal event as being a brilliant move.  I fail to see the advantage to him in fame or wealth.  I sincerely allow that I may be missing something and would welcome your perspective.

You can hardly blame him.  

I mean, he had to wait before being enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  

I think he was completely justified in choosing to punish the NFL and the world at large by denying himself a weekend of being honored.  Power move.

He seems comfortable about the decision, the reasoning being obvious.

All these emotional and personal hate posts repeatedly validate that decision. 

I like it.

It wouldn't surprise me if Owens decided not to go because of where he would have talked the night of the speeches.  Let's fact it, Owens thinks it should be all about him, but you know Ray Lewis is going last, and since Moss was voted in right away, he would go after Owens as well, and Owens' ego couldn't handle not going last at something like that.  He would likely be in a mood all weekend because of it. By throwing a party for himself about it, he can make it all about him, just as he thinks it should be.

Having a different opinion is not hate. Christ, I hate that word.
