Terrell Owens Statement Regarding Hall Of Fame Induction

Official Statement:

I am so grateful for all of the support my family, friends, and certainly my fans, have shown me throughout my entire career in the National Football League. When it was announced that I was going to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the response received from my fans was overwhelming, and I am truly humbled. I am honored to be included among this group of fellow inducted individuals.

While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton. I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.

I would also like to thank the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals for the time I was granted with each organization. I am thankful for the relationships forged and the lessons learned while part of each team.

I wish to congratulate all past, current and future inductees. It is quite an honor to be part of such elite company. This honor is something that I will cherish forever.

  1. What a jerk! Every other living, and true, legend of the game took the time, graciously, I might add, to attend the festivities in person and celebrate their induction with their family, friends and football fans from everywhere. Your insistence on making the entire thing center around only you just goes to exemplify exactly why you shouldn’t be enshrined with the other greats in the Professional Football Hall of Fame. To a man, they have all recognized that they did not achieve this honor on their own but along with those that guided and molded them from an early age up through their careers as a pro. If I was in the position of the electors that selected you and/or the President of the Hall, I would seek to have your enshrinement revoked and permanently bar you from entry into the Hall.

    1. he’s had some financial problems, he might not be able to fit the flight into his budget

  2. Congratulations! I fully support your decision, and applaud your courage to be – ‘True to thine own self.’ You’ve earned this – and this is YOUR time. Yet, I wish that you would be able to find a way to… use this time to speak your truth(s) to all of those other unheralded, denied, and unappreciated young men/women – especially of color in (this) world. All in time…maybe you’re not yet ready! I am a fan. I’ve been a fan…before you were born. My oldest brother (Florida A&M #77 – Owen ‘Butch’ McKay), along with Robert ‘Bob Bullet’ Hayes…and so many others…from so many other schools…gave their ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ for young men – much like you. Life was not fair for them, and it is not fair for you. You have much to say, and share with young athletes- yet struggling against the odds. I UNDERSTAND. This life…YOUR life….is bigger than you. Speak. Talk. Use that platform….when given. God Bless You! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

  3. Mark Seese and David Spada.. you know what??? Don’t judge a man on what you see on TV cuz that just shows your ignorance. I would do the same thing when it came to the HOF.. why would you want to be around a BUNCH of fake ass individuals. You celebrate a lifetime achievement with the people that has always had your back from the start!
