Chapter 8: "He did sit ups in his driveway"

This is often brought up by people who wish to demonstrate that Owens "brings the attention on himself."

Yes, after being suspended from training camp for a week after a dispute with head coach Andy Reid, Owens did some situps on his driveway.

What people neglect to mention is why all those reporters were there in the first place. Owens didn't just pick up the phone and invite them over.

You see, after Owens was sent home, helicopters flew over his house and hundreds of reporters drove out to stand on his lawn. Owens, annoyed by their presence, went out to his driveway and began working out, sarcastically saying "I'm giving you a show."

Another player would have either called the police or thrown a profanity-laced tirade, telling the reporters to get off his lawn. Owens, being rather good-natured, opted to make light of the situation. While he did sit ups and lifted weights, reporters asked him numerous inflammatory questions only to be given a "no comment" response.

Had this been any other player suspended from camp, do you honestly think they would have sent hundreds of reporters to his house?

All this proves is the media was (and still is) flat-out obsessed with Terrell Owens.

Had he not been a greedy homo this would have never been an issue.

If you could read, then you wouldn't be arguing.
