Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

Such appears to be the case with Kobe Bryant and Terrell Owens.

While no one would call Bryant flawless, he was lauded for a maniacal work ethic and dedication to his craft. "When God says, 'Can you hear me?' He sent you a family to make sure you're OK while you're going through what you're going through". "You set the standard for hard work and dedication, and it was incredible to watch".

On the eve of Brian Dawkins' enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Canton, Ohio was swimming in Midnight Green. From the moment his professional football career began in 1996, Owens has been unapologetically honest, an attribute that most of the league at that time could not relate to. "But just like my choice to be here today, I choose not to live in regret".

"The sports writers are not in alignment with the mission and core values of the Hall of Fame", he told the crowd, referring to some members refusing to vote him into the Hall during his first two years of eligibility.

Here's Belichick and Kraft with Moss, and yes Belichick is wearing flip-flops.

Dawkins was the Eagles' defensive MVP five different times and he overtook Harold Carmichael for most games played in Philadelphia: 183, of which he started 182.

The school, which is a joint effort of the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools, will benefit at-risk children. Trump's answer was the following tweet: " Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television , Don Lemon ".

"I wanted to take a stand so the next guy coming after me will not have to go through what I and others have gone through, whether it's three years or 45 years, you should get what you've rightfully earned". "I knew I still had a lot of football left".

In ending his speech, Brazile said, "When the Hall of Fame knocked on my door, all of my dreams came true".

That's a fitting end to Terrell Owens' NFL career.

Canton is the center of the National Football League universe this weekend and the Eagles - Dawkins, Lurie, the Eagles organization, and most certainly the fans - are more than living in it.

"This is for you", Owens said. Dawkins ended his night, a long one, with his own party featuring former teammates and coaches and friends and family. My mother draped it with a table cloth to give us a serving area large enough to welcome more than a dozen relatives for dinner that afternoon. After the 2004 campaign, Moss was traded to the Oakland Raiders for linebacker Napoleon Harris and two draft picks, including the Raiders first round pick (No. 7 overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft. He understands that some people were surprised by Owens' decision.

"Can't compare to being here with my favorite", Davis said.
