Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

If Terrell Owens’ biggest problem was the fact he couldn’t find a job, life would be grand. But now he’s got bigger problems than his unemployment.

As TMZ reports, a California judge has issued an arrest warrant for Owens after he failed to show up for a child support hearing.

We told you a few days ago that Owens had asked to reduce his child support payments, because he’s not making as much money today as he was before. Therefore, he can’t pay as much in child support. Or none at all, as Monique Reynolds, who is taking Owens to court for back payments, claims in court.

TO's Problems
Owens apparently knew he was not going to show up for his court appearance -- it was right around the time of his workout in which zero NFL teams showed up to watch -- and he apparently tried to reschedule, but Reynolds’ representation refused.

And if Owens thought he could catch on with an NFL team in order to earn some money, Bengals safety Chris Crocker, Owens’ former teammate, said he can understand why nobody seems interested.

“When we talk about how perception is reality, the perception around the league is that he’s a bad locker room guy and a bad teammate,” Crocker said in this week’s Five Questions (or more). “Organizations don’t want to bring that dynamic in the locker room, especially with him 37 or 38 years old. I just don’t think people are willing to do it. I’m not saying he’s a bad teammate, but he was called one when he was in San Fran, in Philly, in Dallas. It’s like a circus. Teams just don’t want to go that route. You bring him in, and you bring in all the stuff that goes with it.”

Hopefully, “all that stuff” doesn’t include becoming a deadbeat dad.

Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

I'm surprised that the Eagles have not shown interest in T.O., I would think he's Vick's kind of man since they both have no respect for the laws and other people.  Heck, if those 2 teamed up I bet OJ would come out of retirement too  !!!  I could fill in the rest of this line-up but I'll let you decide who makes up this special team.

this is not about race. This is about athletes who do not know how to discipline themselves to save their millions. TO is another example of that unfortunately.

What a shock. A black, successful, rich young athlete that puts himself ahead of the welfare of his child. Another great black role model.  Book him w/ a room next to OJ.

Report: Warrant issued for Terrell Owens

Are we to believe that Owens spent all the money he's made in the NFL over the years along with his reality show money?  Shouldn't this be the real story here?  Why is Drew Rausenhaus (name not important enough to remember how to spell) still behind the shoulder of every athlete like Wormtung from the Lord of the Rings movie influencing their decisions?  

I'd love to see Owens collecting carts at a local wal-mart some day soon.
