Well Terrel Owens hasn't really convicted any crimes or anything. He is just portrayed as an *******, and not a team player. He is just a player that loves attention, and being the best. He is arguably one of the best receivers of his time

Hahaha Martin Keown was an over-rated C UNT! :D

He's the kind of hard hitting, no nonsense defender we need in the game nowadays. Too many pretty and nancy boys prace about thinking they're off limits to a little contact. And yes, once again, I'm talking about sissy boy Ronaldo. We need more Keowns and Roy Keanes and fewer Ronaldo and Robbens.
