Terrell Owens Reportedly Gives Allen Wranglers Ultimatum to Solve Dispute
Terrell Owens wants an apology and $160,000 from the Allen Wranglers, or he is planning on suing his former IFL team for breach of contract.
The news comes from TMZ Sports:
Terrell Owens has given the Allen Wranglers an ultimatum -- issue a public apology and cut him a check for the more than $160k he claims they owe him ... or he'll take them to court ... a source close to the football star tells TMZ.
The report also goes on to say that Owens will wait until Tuesday for the team to meet his stipulations. If they don't do what he wants by then, he will go to court.
UPDATE: Thursday, June 7 at 7:21 a.m. EST
Allen Wranglers has responded to Terrell Owens' ultimatum, according to TMZ.
"Now, sources tell us the Wranglers aren't budging -- refusing to pay Owens the 160k or issue a mea culpa.
We're told things have gotten downright nasty, with Wranglers owner Jon Frankel accusing Owens of blowing off 4 additional team events ... something T.O. vigorously denies.
Now, T.O.'s tightening the screws -- claiming if the Wranglers don't pony up by the end of business today, he's filing suit."
What this means
Simple. It means Terrell Owens is fairly ridiculous.
This is a guy who is doing everything he can to stay in the limelight. I understand wanting to right the ship after being wrongly fired (or so he thinks), but to demand a public apology?
In the words of fellow misunderstood WR Keyshawn Johnson, c'mon man!
It's simple. A team fired Owens because he failed to visit children in a hospital. As wrong as it was for him to miss that event, he is free to sue if he thinks being fired is a breach of contract.
Are you tired of Terrell Owens in the news?
That's a contract. That's the law.
But don't demand a public apology. Just go to court and do what you need to do. Owens' struggle to hold on to the spotlight is becoming sad.
It's just a hunch on my part, but I don't think the Wranglers will give Owens the money and apology by Tuesday.
That means what comes next is Owens taking his former team to court. I don't know the exact wording of the contract, so I have no idea who will win.
One thing I do know is that win or lose, Terrell Owens will probably be popping up in the headlines sometime in the near future.
His eccentricity was fun when he was dominating the NFL as a wide receiver, but now it's starting to get annoying.
