Found May 29, 2012 on Down and Distance:
(Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) Terrell Owens football career may have finally come to an end. After spending this past season out of the NFL, Owens decided to sign with the IFL’s Allen Wranglers and also bought a stake in ownership. But once again his attitude got in the way of being able to be a productive player. Refusing to play the final two road games, Wranglers owner Jon Frankel couldn’t take Owens and his attitude any longer. “Our fans are amongst the best in the league, and it is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player’s lack of effort both on and off the field,” Frankel told ESPNDallas.com. “We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community.” Owens has always been a guy, off the field, to be a distraction. Give credit to the owner for choosing success over publicity. “It’s disappointing and unfortunate,” Frankel said of releasing Owens, “but (he) could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.” Along with Owens release, his stake of ownership has been taken away because of his failure to abide by his contract. Once again another athlete who has possibly lost his career because of his ego and his unwillingness to get with the program. Surely kids and young athletes everywhere will learn from Terrell Owens. Unfortunately it won’t be on technique or drills.
