This is a transcript of the 911 call Terrell Owens publicist made to Dallas Police and posted at ESPN.com. Note that she does not say he’s trying to kill himself or that he was attempting suicide. The Dallas Police have made disparaging remarks about Terrell Owens in the aftermath of this incident. Considering the nature of the event, they should appologize to Terrell Owens. DALLAS — A transcript of the 41-second call from Terrell Owens’ publicist Kim Etheredge to 911 on Tuesday night: Kim Etheredge: “Hi, I...

FLASH! Click for T.O.’s new squeeze. According to a story by The Dallas Morning News, and appearing below, Terrell Owens fiance and girlfriend of three years Felicia broke off their engagement. In an earlier blog post, I asked what happened to T.O.s fiance and why wasn’t she near him when he took the ill-fated medication. Now we know. What we don’t know is why she broke it off. But my original opinion — that his depression is related to his fiance — remains unchanged. Owens fires trainer apparently...

With a win, New England will tie the Denver Broncos (53) for the second-longest streak since 1970 without back-to-back losses.

The NFL plans to present a proposal to owners in October that “calls for two regular-season games to be played outside the [U.S.] every season,” according to Doug Haller of the ARIZONA REPUBLIC. If approved, the plan could go into effect next season. England, Mexico, Germany and Canada have been targeted as possible locations. The league has discussed the proposal with owners at previous meetings, and feedback has been favorable. NFL Int’l Senior VP Mark Waller: “Nobody is saying ‘Why are we doing this?’ They’re...

DJO Inc., a health product manufacturer, today announced an endorsement deal with Bengals QB Carson Palmer, who will be featured in the company’s “Faces of DonJoy” print ad campaign. The ads feature athletes who have suffered severe ACL injuries that required reconstructive surgery. Others in the campaign include surfer Garrett McNamara, motocross rider Brett Metcalfe and U.S. Olympic skiers Joe Pack and Jillian Vogtli, all of whom used the company’s DonJoy Defiance knee brace during rehabilitation ...

This video — different from the previous one — shows people getting on the A380, going to their seats, the general reactions to the plane’s interior, what they do while inflight and even at night, and landing and deplaning. It’s a great video and I can now see just how wide the economy class cabin is, with nine-across seating. It’s truly a big plane, but it’s also obviously ultra-modern in its design. Here’s the video: ...

This video gives one a great idea of what it’s like to fly on the new Superjumbo jet A380. The clip shows the sleeper bed seats, the bench lounge chairs, and gives a very good feel of the overall width of the main cabin. Here’s the video: ...

Hey President Clinton. I’m a big fan. I not only voted for you, but was Economic Advisor to Oakland Mayor Elihu Harris when you came to town. (I just didn’t want to be part of the silly staff frenzy to meet you.) I later got a letter to you about my ill-and-now-late-stepfather — or at least I tried to. He’s from Hope, Arkansas like you are and always bragged about your Chief of Staff Mac McClarty, as he knew Mac’s dad. I gave it to one of your staffers when you came to Cody’s Book Store in Berkeley....

This is the video of ESPN’s report of Terrell Owens reported suicide. Owens has said it wasn’t a suicide attempt at all, and that he just had a reaction to medication. Some have bashed the media for reporting that there was a suicide attempt, but as this video shows, the police report contained the information. ESPN also made effort to clear the information. Owens was examined and released by physicians at Baylor Medical Center. Here’s two videos of ESPN’s account: ...

Oh Terrell It’s safe to say that Dallas Cowboys WR Terrell Owens has had “Issues” in his past. Going all the way back to his 49ers days, T.O. was always looking for the spotlight, starting a controversy. But did he really try to kill himself this Tuesday night? Did he really swallow over 30 Vicodin tablets? What could possibly cause his depression? Today we spoke with two doctors who were willing to comment, but without the use of their names. The first, a sports medical specialist who’s practice treats many...

The school also gains signage and a variety of advertising, marketing and merchandising opportunities. The deal marks the first time an NFL venue has been named after an educational institution (Cardinals). In Phoenix, Scott Wong reports the deal also “grants the university opportunities for in-stadium and community...

FLASH! Click for the latest news on Terrell and Felicia! The story of Terrell Owens is one of not just a talented, but outspoken wide receiver, but of a case example of bad sports journalism in an era that’s rampant with it. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is commonly the focus of stories on what he said or what someone said about him, but far less frequently do we hear about his love life. It’s almost assumed that because he’s a successful athlete, he has a good one. There are stories about him with Ford Agency...

This is what Tim Brown said in the Contra Costa Times about the Raiders offense under Offensive Coordinator Tom Walsh: “You just can’t run that offense in the NFL anymore,” Brown said. “They’re calling timeouts, spending most of their timeouts before 10 minutes is up in the second quarter. They’re getting delay penalties, getting to the line of scrimmage late, because those plays are 20 words long. “I know that it was a horrible offense way back when. We just had to make plays and make things...

For those who remark that Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick can’t sit in the passing pocket, read the defense, and throw a completion, here’s video proof he can. This against the Panthers two weeks ago. ...

This is the play that started the tidalwave of celebration. Even watching this on TV I could feel the crowd going totally nuts. The blocked punt came because the Saints used an uncommon middle rush stunt, which was such that it created a hole that the eventual blocker ran through. Watch and listen: ...
