............Terrell Owens cannot be tolerated, even by the Indoor Football League

US PresswireAnother team for Terrell Owens, and another acrimonious departure. Things never seem to end well with Owens, even with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.

With the Wranglers at 6-5 and chasing a playoff spot, they've released Owens for what they're calling a "lack of effort both on and off the field." In a statement released by the team president and co-owner, Owens was said to be refusing to play in upcoming road games against the Nebraska Danger and Everett (Washington) Raptors. There was this, too:

"The proverbial straw that broke the camel's back for Mr. Owens was his no-show to a scheduled appearance at a local children's hospital with other Wrangler players and coaches. It is not the desire of the Allen Wranglers' organization to disappoint fans by having our most notable player miss a scheduled appearance."

Owens will also lose his ownership stake in the team.

When Owens originally signed with the team, it seemed like there was an agreement that he wouldn't have to play in all the team's road games, though the actual language in his contract is unknown. Maybe he had to play in these two particular road games. I don't know. But if a team wanted to get out of its contract with Owens, and thought it might help to make him seem like a bad and irresponsible guy, well, that fruit would be hanging pretty low.

No matter the case, the news doesn't come at a great time for Owens. Financially, things are not going well for him. Between the child support, the foreclosed homes, the tears, and the public flogging on "Dr. Phil," it would've probably been a good idea for Owens to hold on to this job, even if it wasn't his dream job. At the very least, fulfilling his obligation to the Allen Wranglers might've been an indication to NFL teams that Owens had his act together, but now, maybe not so much.

With 420 yards, Owens was tied for the lead among Wranglers wide receivers. He was averaging 52.5 yards per game and was fifth on the team with an average of 12 yards per catch. His 10 touchdowns ranked him third on the team.

It's bad when you're partial owner and still can't keep your job.

He probably asked the Wranglers to release him.

No job=no child support payments

Terrell Owens WR CIN
48 Mins Cincinnati Bengals
Free agent Terrell Owens is reportedly considering a breach of contract lawsuit after being released by the IFL's Allen Wranglers this week.

Owens' rep claims his client met the terms of the contract. Furthermore, the team's criticism of T.O. for failing to show for an event at a children's hospital was the "straw that broke the camel's back." The Wranglers aren't backing down, reportedly offering Owens a severance package of a whopping $50 while taking back the keys to his loaner house and Jeep Cherokee.

I will say, I am a little surprised not one team has taken a chance on him. He is in good shape and could be a decent #3 WR. The Jets, Dolphins and Jaguars seem to be logical places that would take a chance on him. I am guessing for a chance at a pay day considering the debt he is in, you would get TO at his ultimate best behavior.

Adding his "leadership" to the group of young, inexperienced WR the Dolphins have assembled?

Dolphins have a rookie qb and a new head coach, not a good idea. Jags also have a young qb and just drafted a wr with a high draft pick, not another good idea. The jets have their hands full as it is.

If T.O. cant be on his best behavior in a 2nd rate Arena league, it isnt happening in the NFL.


T.O. needs to start thinking about life after football, and accept that his career is over. Maybe he could get a job at NFL network or something, If he doesnt find a way to start making some decent money soon, I have a feeling he wont deal with it well.
