Bills legend Thurman Thomas ‘ticked off’ Terrell Owens isn’t coming to Hall of Fame induction
With the Hall of Fame enshrinement in Canton only a few weeks away more people seem to be giving their opinion on Terrell Owens deciding to skip the weekend. Instead of giving his Hall of Fame speech in Canton Owens will be giving it at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga where he played his college football.
Owens has said that he is boycotting for all the people who have had to wait, but former Buffalo Bills running back and fellow Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas doesn’t buy it and is ticked off that he isn’t coming to his induction.
“I’m a little ticked off that he’s not coming,” Thomas said Saturday morning at the Professional Football Researchers Association Convention, via the Buffalo News. “But it’s his choice. . . . I think it was a bad P.R. move on his part, but I do get it. . . . Every guy thinks they should have been a first-ballot Hall of Famer. I remember Deacon Jones telling me after I didn’t get in the first time. . . he said, ‘Whether you’re going to get in the first time, the second time, the third time, it’s when you get in that you should enjoy it.’”
Owens no doubt is a first ballot Hall of Famer based on the stats but many have called him a teammate and not the greatest human being.
Randy Moss who has sometimes had the same things said about him will also be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, as a first-ballot choice.
