Terrell Owens probably doesn’t need the judicial system to tell him that his NFL career is over -- the speculation that he is seriously considering signing a deal with something called the IFL is a pretty good indication about his future prospects -- but a Los Angeles Superior Court judge did so anyway.
"His NFL career seems to be over. I mean no disrespect,” said Mariani, according to TMZ, which then led Owens apparently to nod his head in acknowledgment.
Owens and his lawyer were in court to try to lower payment on two of his four paternity cases, and while the judge didn’t immediately rule, he did try to encourage Owens by saying he could be inspired by Kurt Warner’s rise from the Arena Football League to the NFL.
At least people have heard of the AFL. Unlike, say, the IFL.
All of which must have lead Owens to wonder: "When the hell is the next season of the T.O. Show starting?"
