T.O.'s Last, Desperate Plea

This image was lost some time after publication.

Right now, members of the NFL Players Union (along with Terrell Owens and agent spawn Drew Rosenhaus) are sitting in an conference room in the Airport Marriott outside Philadelphia, arguing with the Eagles to arbitrator Richard Bloch that he should be able to play again this season. As fans, we're kind of rooting for T.O. to come back, because, well, we love the idea of, say, the Cowboys signing him for the rest of the season or something. We also love the idea of this all going down in an Airport Marriott; a fierce debate taking place under the dead florescent corporate light of a conference room — anybody want another croissant? — cracks us up.

Some legal observers think T.O. doesn't stand a chance, but others say he'll say that he did nothing extra wrong between the time he received his first suspension (which was for one game) and his second one (which was for the whole season). And it's going on right now.


Our bet? The NFLPA wouldn't even let Rosenhaus in the room. He showed up, and Gene Upshaw was like, "Uh, Drew, wait in the hall. They have bagels and coffee. Seriously. Get out of here."
