    Another unprecedented protest.

    "I think T.O. actually was disappointed when he got in this year," Philadelphia Daily News writer Paul Domowitch, who presented Owens' case for induction, told The Associated Press. "I think he was happier when he got snubbed and could play the part of the persecuted victim and moan on every radio talk show that was willing to bring him on about the unfairness of the process."

      Has this guy done anything with his life since he retired? How can a retired NFL player that famous and decorated be that financially strapped?

        Uh, spending like crazy? Johnny Depp is broke and he’s made over 600 million in earnings.

            All he has to do is show up at a Walmart parking lot with a Sharpie pen. Poof! $10,000.

            At Wal-Mart? He’d be more likely to get robbed.

                All he is doing is validating everyone's opinion of him that he's an ******* and a diva.

                Broke and alone.

                    Everyone has the right to do as they please as long as it is legal, as this is. but I equate this to the teams invited to the white house who choose not to go. They are choosing not to go b/c they dislike the current president. so they think they are disrespecting him. They could not be more wrong. They are disrespecting the office of the presidency, not a particular individual. I have hated the last 4 presidents for one reason or another, but never disrespected the office. T O is ticked that he did not get in on first ballot, so he is taking it out on the voters. Guess what, he is disrespecting all the football players who are already in the HOF. He is a complete moron!

                      TO Is the dumbest player ever to not get arrested for a standard criminal offense. I think he only got picked up for not paying child support.

                      Sounds like he lost all his money through stupid investments and throwing money around like crazy.

                      And people still watch and support Pro sports... spend your money as you deem fit, your cash... myself, I don’t move a dime toward the usual entitlement minded... anti-American factions, doesn’t matter except to make me feel better and I do.

                        And get TB.

                        My last trip to Walmart was prompted by Mrs. 5-Star sending one of her famous - "one last thing I forgot to tell you we needed five minutes after you left the store" texts. The only thing between me and the house was a Walmart. As I pulled in next to one of the little grass islands they have, I noticed there was a pile of used tires sitting there, for no apparent reason. Carts were scattered about across the parking lot with cars dodging some of them to park. I felt like I should have had my passport stamped when I walked in because it was as dirty as a third world bazaar. I understand that are now offering curb side service - I can understand why.

                        I haven’t stepped foot in one of those sh*tholes in over 15 years. Life’s too short.

                          Right? I laugh every year when I see the black Friday people mowing each other down and fighting over plastic toys made in china.

                            So how do you spend that much money on cocaine, hookers, cars and pimp clothes?
