Buffalo Bills star wide receiver and prima donna Terrell Owens (pictured, crying, stealing a fan's popcorn, working out in his driveway, and poorly acting on BET) recently had some choice words for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell regarding the suspension of former Atlanta Falcons quarterback and recreational dog murderer Michael Vick.
Owens called Goodell's consideration to suspend Vick for the first four games of the season "ridiculous," despite the fact that he is currently a free agent, and also that no NFL teams are currently expressing interest in him.
"The Michael Vick situation, I think, is unfortunate. I think the way the commissioner is handling it is unfair to Michael Vick. I think he's done the time for what he's done. I don't think it's really fair for him to be suspended four more games. It's almost like kicking a dead horse in the ground," Owens told reporters.
I'm not quite sure why Owens is even fielding Vick questions, but his point is somewhat valid. Vick served his punishment and is now being told that if he gets reinstated, he may have to serve another sentence, albeit briefer than the first one.
T.O. was almost making a completely valid argument, until he told the media: "The Commissioner needs to go sit in jail for 23 months."
Oh, OK. That's a reasonable response.
The upstate New York diva went on to say that more NFL players need to stick up for Vick, saying that Goodell has been unfair to the one-time owner of Bad Newz Kennels. Somehow, though, Goodell hasn't earned brownie points for not giving Vick a lifetime ban from the NFL.
While T.O. does have a point, his choice of words -- kicking a dead horse -- were probably not the best given the topic of the conversation. I guess it's better than saying that it's almost like kicking a dead dog in the ground, though.
