T.O. Should Be Taken At His Word
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens did the right thing by addressing the situation immediately. He emphatically declared that there was no suicide attempt, refuting a report that was apparently part of an internal police document. The pills that his publicist thought he took were apparently put in a drawer.
It was a major misunderstanding according to Owens and we should take him at his word. While some conspiracy theorists will feel that T.O. was looking for more publicity, that doesn't appear to be the case.
Of course the only one who knows for sure is T.O., and he insists that he was groggy, took some extra pills with his supplements and didn't remember much after that.
In the past Owens has been guilty of being a self-serving publicity hound, but it's doubtful that even he would go to these extremes for some extra attention.
Owens even apologized to the Cowboys organization for the disturbance his situation created.
For once, he should be taken at his word and the matter should be forgotten. Even somebody who isn't the most popular figure, especially with Eagles fans, deserves the benefit of the doubt.
