    Default Some burning questions on Terrell Owens

    Terrell, Terrell and more Terrell. We just can't get enough can we?

    With Terrell Owens' special arbitration hearing set for later this week, there are always three sides to every soap opera. It's our job to fill in some blanks and paint a picture of that third side.

    With that said, the following are some additional intriguing questions that need to be answered in order to fill in the blanks of what has become the most notorious football story of the decade to date:

    Question No. 1: Was this suspension a shock to people inside the Eagles?

    No, because many knew that Eagles coach Andy Reid actually considered suspending Owens three weeks ago.

    This portion of the weekly T.O. escapade began weeks ago when Reid had a meeting with his players and informed them that they must begin to follow the little rules that were in place, most notably the dress code of not wearing tennis shoes or jeans and parking in the back of the Eagles' complex.

    Owens, despite Reid's insistence, wore jeans, tennis shoes and a Michael Irvin jersey. Wearing the Irvin jersey after their loss to the Cowboys created a national stir, but Reid actually cared about the other part of his ensemble, the jeans and sneakers. The coach again warned Owens and told him that he was responsible for following the same dress code as the rest of the team.

    According to sources, had Owens showed up to Philadelphia's next road game in tennis shoes or jeans, Reid had planned to suspend him and not allow the controversial wide receiver on the team plane. Owens, in what was viewed by many inside the Eagles as pushing Reid, wore a tuxedo and shoes that resembled sneakers but were, in fact, considered shoes.

    "He was just trying to push Andy," said one source. "That's what we had to deal with every week."

    Owens also parked in a handicap space in the front of the building, citing that he wasn't parking in the back as he was told. Such instances may not sound like much, but the team felt he was constantly trying to push the limits of insubordination and see how far he could push.

    Question No. 2: Where will Owens play this year?

    The answer, in my opinion, is nowhere. Several people within the Eagles have insisted that the team will absolutely, unequivocally not release Owens even if the special master rules to end his suspension.

    Should they release him, what message would that send to not only each of their players, but to every player around the NFL? Act in the worst manner possible and you'll get your wish? The Eagles would rather welcome him back then release him.

    The wild card in this is that union chief Gene Upshaw is asking that the Eagles release him if they don't plan on playing him at all.

    Question No. 3: What will they do if, in fact, Owens is allowed back and he decides to show up?

    Philly could make his life as miserable as he made theirs. In other words, OK, T.O. you insist on coming back, well you've now got to follow these rules, lift at 5 a.m. every day, play scout team, play wedge-breaker on kickoffs and attend only special teams meetings. If he failed to comply with the smallest of rules, the Eagles would then have the right to suspend him yet again.

    Question No. 4: Why is it so important for Owens to win his hearing?

    According to language in his contract, if Owens is suspended for "more than one game" due to conduct detrimental to the team then the Eagles have the right to go after the player's signing bonus money.

    Question No. 5: Isn't this the same thing as the Keyshawn Johnson situation?

    Nope! Johnson told FOXSports.com that he didn't even know that he could send his situation to grievance but even if he did, he would not have.

    "I wasn't going to go anywhere they didn't want me," he said.

    Johnson also said that his situation was completely different because he didn't have a problem with the quarterback and the entire organization, just the head coach.

    Question No. 6: Is there any other route that can be taken?

    The two sides may decide to sit down and hammer out a settlement of sorts in order to avoid the final say of the special master. Why would they do this? Both sides must fear that they could lose big time in the eyes of the arbitrator. His decision cannot be appealed. Rather than chance it, they could come to an agreement that would prevent this already ridiculous soap opera from sinking to the level of the absurd.

    What an asshat. Apart from everything else, this "athlete" parked in the handicap stall. Let's hope he talks himself right out of a job.

    What is it with receivers being loudmouths? Randy Moss, Keyshawn Johnson, Chad Johnson, T.O. What an annoying trend!

    This is why I dislike anything "pro". People are making millions off of playing a game. A game! I just don't get it.

    I've never heard of these people, or Terrell Owens either for that matter. Is he a hairdresser or something important?? So I really don't give a damn AND the world is still turning. Maybe I should post about the Australian cricket team or, even more vital, the Aussie Rules football competition LOL
