Despite his raw talent, T.O. can’t keep a job, even in the indoor league. Does bad luck have a thing for this man?

When it comes to the most talented wide receivers to ever touch a football, Terrell Owens is right up there with the best of them, no question. And although he has a mean set of hands and athleticism that is out of this world, his personality has gotten him the cold shoulder several times and now from the NFL as a whole.
The big league has washed their hands of him so on to indoor football he went.
Fully aware of what he is capable of doing on the field, the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League decided to give T.O. a shot on their team. Hoping to clinch a playoff spot, the Wranglers decided to let Owens go due to “lack of effort both on and off the field”
Not only was his effort lacking, team president and co-owner stated that Owens didn’t show up at a very important event, leaving fans unhappy:
“The proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back for Mr. Owens was his no-show to a scheduled appearance at a local children’s hospital with other Wrangler players and coaches. It is not the desire of the Allen Wranglers’ organization to disappoint fans by having our most notable player miss a scheduled appearance.”
What was this man thinking?
This was your chance to prove to NFL critics that you were worthy of a return, deserving a chance to get picked up by a team and you do this?
Not to mention that this release most definitely had horrible timing.
Knee deep in child support payments, losing million dollar homes and getting called out on Dr. Phil for bad parenting skills; this just adds to the string of bad luck that he is having.
Dang T.O., must you be the stereotype?
