Terrell vs. DeAngelo -- Who Gives A Spit?: Consider the receiver before condemning the deliverer, says wfrazerjr.

Funny stuff, fraze. However, DeAngelo Hall, despite his obvious love for himself, has no trouble getting along with other loud mouthed receivers, including Chad Johnson (remember the mohawk). TO getting pissed off because someone was talking too much takes hypocrisy to a whole other level.

Now scoring and playing well isn't good enough for the guy. T.O. is scratching and clawing (and spitting) for any kind of attention.

Column makes no sense!& there's no excuse for spitting in someones face or anywhere else on ones body.Also there's no excuse for anything Owens ever does or says!He's crap,always was & always will be!& he's a good receiver at best.Has dropped way to many important catches over the years!!!Should have been completely out of football at least 5 years ago!No defending this guy EVER!!!

Yeah, I'm inclined to let this one slide as well, Fraze. Not because it isn't classless and tasteless, because it certainly is, but because DeAngelo Hall epitomizes all-fart-no-shitness, and frankly, Owens has committed far more heinous crimes against class, taste, grace and unity between him & his fellow union members than this.

Forgive him because he spat on a guy that "thinks he's the shit, and acts like it"? Wow, but if he spat on Tom Brady, Bret Farve, Either Manning brother, (or even D McNabb), then he should be banned from football. It's funny how the T.O. threads have changed since he put that Cowbum uniform on.

Can someone in the Pantheon change "codemning" to "condemning"? And "Terrel" to "Terrell"? Seriously, looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. As for the column, I didn't say Owens wasn't wrong. He was. However, if you're going to label T.O. as the AntiChrist, I would hope it would be for something more than this. Or, let he who is without sin cast the first loogie, or something.

Spit for DeAngelo Hall is not enough. Somebody needs to throw up on him. I don't think even then he should have a bitch. Oh, but TO apologized; said it was not intentional. Should I believe him and be disappointed? Oh, wfrazierjr, please tell us the glue sniffing stoppage is temporary. Let me assure you that it is needed in order to tolerate sports. Yeah, enjoy, too!

Its not just for this...its the accumalation of B.S. Wake up, there is no excuse for T.O.'s crap! I'll cast the loogie because I can!

Good one Fraze. I was watching this game on the NFL Network and even though I'm a huge Cowboys fan, I was a little disappointed that Terrell Owens would have done something like this to DeAngelo Hall. At first, I was cursing Terrell out for spitting on someone since there really is no rhyme or reason to stoop so low but after reading your explanation behind "Loogie-gate" I'll have to give Terrell a pass (no pun intended). I am no fan of DeAngelo Hall or Terrell Owens but since he does play for "America's team", my team, I'll let this one slide. ....if he spat on Tom Brady, Bret Farve, Either Manning brother, (or even D McNabb), then he should be banned from football. I can agree with that, Bishop.

From all I've read about over the years about Brett Favre, I don't think I'd want to have to worry about him getting loogie payback on me. I believe he could honk up a real beauty.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired of TO. You would think that after being deactivated for pretty much being a jackass, one might come to the realization that being a jackass aint that cool. May my Eagles spank the hell out of the Cowboys next week.

TO or not, it's bad sportsmanship to spit on someone. I don't think it matters who is involved, i.e. Favre, the Mannings, Brady or whoever. TO should be fined, but not suspended. As far as hocking one on Eli Manning, I think there are a lot of Giants fans who would gladly let him have it. "PTOOEY! Hey Eli, you're a fuckin' bum!" (in best Bronx accent).

I love how people are personally offended by something that one person does to another person, as if it has anything to do with them. I stopped reading T.O articles a long time ago because I don't like what he says or does. It's not that hard. If you ignore the troll, it will go away or it won't matter anyways because you're ignoring it.

I personally don't give two shits about the guy, even though he does plays for my favorite team, but let me put it like this: If there's a car accident, regardless whether you like it or not, people will drive slow to see what happened, and if it's a real bad accident, traffic will be backed up for miles with people actually stopping to get a better look at what's going on. Am I wrong?

Nicely said, frazey. I would also add: This is not a big deal by any stretch of the imagination: Be it T.O. or Tom Brady (though, in the latter case it would be a lot more interesting). I mean, aren't we all a little tired about hearing about what this guy says, does, eats, not eats, drives, how many crunches he can do in his driveway....? Our friends at the WWL need to find a new horse to beat to death.

Isn't spitting one of the ten signs of steroid abuse?

Terrell Owens has 35,000 reasons to never spit at an opponent again. T.O. was fined $35,000 by the NFL on Monday for spitting in the face of Atlanta cornerback DeAngelo Hall during Saturday night's Cowboys-Falcons game. Although it's more than twice as much as the last fine for spitting, Dallas' flamboyant receiver avoided a suspension. Owens wasn't ejected at the time because officials didn't see it. Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said Monday "we don't condone that kind of activity, that's for sure," and added the team may also punish Owens.

I personally don't see any reason for the team to "punish" Terrell Owens, even though a fine of $35,000 is more or less pocket change to him though it is doubled to what Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins was fined in 2005 for spitting on someone as well. Also, from what Terrell said yesterday, D. Hall and Terrell were jawing face to face, taunting one another and spit flew out of Terrell's mouth. So it wasn't like Terrell just blantantly spat at D. Hall's face. Or at least that's the way Terrell put it which doesn't count for much since he's never at fault. According to Terrell that is.
