Terrell Owens stupid act

All over Espn and all over the news were reports that Terrell Owens tried to commit suicide. It was reported that he said he was depressed and wanted to hurt himself. The pills he had were for his hand he hurt and reports say he had a prescription for 40 pain pills but only had taken 5 so far. What I don’t really get is why someone so famous and making so much money would be depressed and want to try and kill themselves. I know if I were making that much money for playing football I wouldn’t be trying to kill myself or reporting it as if I tried to kill myself, I wouldn’t want people to think that about me.

I totally agree. Terrell Owens has too much going for him as far as his career is concerned. Owens has been known from time to time to be very dramatic. Looking at his background, you can tell that he has no problem stirring the pot a little to make things interesting for the fans. With all of this being said, I think that there was nothing close to what looked like as an attempted suicide.

I think he did that just to get attention. They play the Eagles this weekend and he wanted all eyes on him.

I have to agree as well. Terrell Owens is just doing it because he is not getting the attention that he wants.

The world of sports is very demanding and sometimes can be overwhelming. Being depressed as an athlete is becoming a common act around the sports world. There are many different reasons for this, such as family or just being in the spotlight that almost never ends. I do agree that T.O. could have dont all of this for attention, but we must still realize is that he is still human and can become depressed just like any of us. He is a superstar, but he is also a human that feels and hurts just like we do. As for suicide, I dont believe that for a moment. He had a bad reaction with his pain pills and supplments that he was on. That could happen to any of us, but sadly it happened for T.O. at the wrong time!
