jesse jackson is out of control.
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Ralph Nader, a consumer activist and former presidential candidate, has already called for the suspension to be rescinded.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.
#1 Jesse are you a aspiring politican ? race baiting shakedown artist ? treasonist negoitiator ? or NOW A SPORTS COMMENTATER/pundit.
WTF. Please make up your mind, i dont know of anyone else in politics and sports commentary.
I hate Jesse. Who cares that he isn't getting paid. T.O. is a talented idiot, i am glad philly is one upping him. T.O. needs a reality check, he up to this point belived his talent so far out weighted anything he did would be shrugged off and people would say so long as he shows up next week and catch 2 t.d.'s all will be forgotten. LOL the philly management is so spitefull they would rather you sit and hurt the teams on field performance becuase you are such a stooge, they would rather not trade you, just let you sit there and get old and rusty. I personally love it.
I just wish the mass media would nto pander to Jesse and give him a forum to spew his junk. The media has cast off lots of politicans and TV folk for less, ol Jesse has zero credibility. Heck, Connie Chung was hung out to dry for that minor fiasco (in my opinion, that thing with a wisper from Newt Gingrichs mom calling hillary a bitch). Hasn't anyone at the networks read the book on Jackson, half his bio is made up, he is a shakedown artist, a treasonist, a thief, a philandering "reverand" :tonka: , plus he talks weird and is ugly. No one else that talked that strange and is that bug eyed and bull dog looking has ever had so much camera time. Drunk rant over.
ohh one more thing "carrying a gun or fighting fans without sufficient restraint." LOL sufficent restraint?? When is it ok to fight with fans, I wish T.O. WOULD attack me i would stab him in the guts and in the face. Then knee him in the junk and make him sterile/impotent. I wish he would try to attack me. What the heck is sufficent restraint in regards to attacking a fan.

I find it hard to believe that ANYBODY would back up T.O. After all the crap he's done, it's about time he got punished in this manner! His ego has finally bitten him on the ass!!!
