Thumbs down Now Jesse Jackson is in involved w/ T.O.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5...40813162&ATT=5

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Rev. Jesse Jackson called the Philadelphia Eagles' punishment of Terrell Owens "much too severe."

Jackson said in a statement released Friday that Owens could have been more professional when he publicly complained about his contract, his team and the Eagles' organization.
But Jackson said Owens' suspension without pay for four games and deactivation for the rest of the season is "much too severe for the charge" and hurts the athlete's NFL career at its height.

The civil rights activist said the level of punishment could have been warranted if Owens had been caught shaving points, selling drugs, carrying a gun or fighting fans without sufficient restraint.

"This does not warrant a one-year ban from the game," Jackson said, adding that the Eagles should release Owens to the open market or free agency if they no longer want to associate with him.

Ralph Nader, a consumer activist and former presidential candidate, has already called for the suspension to be rescinded.

Owens was suspended last week after he said in an interview that the Eagles showed "a lack of class" for not publicly recognizing his 100th career touchdown catch, and that the team would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre as quarterback. He has since apologized.

Jesse only wants to be around controversy, just for himself

Of course, if TO was white Jesse Jackson wouldn't say a damn thing about it.

On a side note, what the heck does Jesse Jackson do?? Does he have a job?? How does he earn money??

I was thinking to myself - how can you make a T.O. related saga even more seedy?

The answer was infront of me when I woke this morning - a 'Champion Of Civil Rights' sticking his nose into the cry-baby affairs of an unbelieveably well paid sportsman.

All the 'Civil Rights' injustices in the world and this is the stuff he is focusing his attention on?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I guess it was only a matter of time... Jesse always seems to add his to the most controversial topics.

The thing that pisses me off is that T.O. had no problem repeatedly stirring up the shit-pot by shooting his mouth off about McNabb and the Eagles Organization and now that he has to face the consequences/punishment for his actions he feels the need to let his
"Agent-Public Relations Person" Drew Rosenhaus make statements of apology on his behalf and now he's got Jesse Jackson trying to drum up sympathy for his sorry ass.

Why not speak for yourself T.O. instead of letting dumbass mouthpieces like Jackson and Rosenhaus talk for you?? Obviously your mouth is only good for spewing out "Stupidities" instead of anything intelligent.
