Do Better Mr. Owens...Do Better

I will admit that at first I wasn't really feeling this show even though I love me some T.O. but after watching a couple episodes last season I feel in love with him...Terrell not T.O. they are completely two different people. I watch him last season go through the ups and downs of playing football and his personally life...even felt sorry for him when he talked about not having his father around even though he lives only a few houses down from him. That was one of his biggest problem in his life not having his father around, he impacted his life so much. He said he didn't have anyone around to really show how to be man so that was the reason behind his actions. Ok so I can believe that to a certain point but to eaches own.

So the first episode of this season aired a couple of days ago and of course i tuned in even though he drives me crazy with some of the shit he says and does i still like seeing him be Terrell and not T.O. that use to cross my TV every Sunday during football season. I listened to him be sad about him not having team to play for, i watched him cry about being single and how he was lonely and tired of it. My heart even went out to him as he talked about not knowing how to hold on to a relationship because he never had to and even wanted to shed a tear for him as he talked about his father being absent in his life. well, when the show ended and they showed the previews for the upcoming season I was angry at what i saw. So the same who was so hurt that his father never took an interest in him and cried about it...is a deadbeat father just like his own!! smh...He talked about not knowing or even seeing his toddler son Atlin.....Was this man serious?!? has the compassion I once had for him just went flying out of the window. I couldn't believe that he was doing the same thing to his son....His son who isn't his only child he has others but he was just what his father was to him to Atlin. I was surprise because most of the men I know who grew up fatherless are the greatest fathers ever and play the biggest role in their children's live just so they don't have to experience what they went through. Not only did he piss me off but i lost all respect for him.....how do you cry your heart out on TV week after week about your father being absent in your life and how it affect you but behind all that be doing the same to your own son? come on homie what ever sympathy i had for that man has certainly been blown away with the wind.....do better Terrell Owens do better...

and before everyone says oh he learned from his Father and just doing what he was taught...negative he has two older children that he takes care of and is very much in their lives..

I forgot his show was even being aired that night after watching half of the travesty that is The Ultimate Catch....anyway, he has no damn valid excuse to NOT be a part of his son's life. He's got more than enough money to make it happen captain. I remember him crying and shit about the void his father left and the emotional heartache he experienced but as I read your post, I'm feeling like that was all an act for viewers. Practice what you preach Terrell.

yea i was a little shocked when i heard that too. there is no excuse someone can give why they "haven't seen their" child that makes it okay. but..you still don't know the reason yet. so hold on till you see why.

That f**ks me up every time I hear something like that. How in the hell can a man be selective with the kids he will have in his life??!! That does not sit well with me. And if I was that child's mother, I would tell him to not even crook his lips to say my son's name on national television. Why speak his name if you are not even in his life??!! Not cool. The only thing T.O. got going for him, in my opinion is that chisled ass body! It's an amazing sight, but outside of that, he can kick rocks in my opinion.

I'd like to know his reasons and not his excuses. He has to have a reason.
