Default As The World Turns...

excerpt:

Eagles sue T.O. for bonus money he hasn't paid

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles sued their former wide receiver Terrell Owens for bonus money he has not repaid the team.

The suit for nearly $770,000 was filed in U.S. District Court on Monday. Owens lost in arbitration earlier this year, a ruling calling him to repay $1.7 million in bonuses the team paid him when he played in Philadelphia in 2004 and '05.

Neither the team nor Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, returned phone calls from The Associated Press seeking comment.

The Eagles suspended Owens for conduct detrimental to the team midway through 2005, a half-year one year after he helped them get to the Super Bowl. Owens lost $965,000 in salary from the final five games of 2005 after the team withheld game checks.

He was released after that season and the Eagles now are trying to get back the remaining sum: $769,117.

Well actually, now that the Eagles have DeSean Jackson, I've moved on.

Still, this story is straight out of Victor Hugo - and it brings to mind a line from a song that was out when I was like 12 years old: "If G-d was here he'd tell you to your face: 'Man, you're some kinda sinner'" (from Signs by Five Man Electric Band), referring to Jeffrey Lurie and/or Joe Banner's actions in this matter.

But, TO could have avoided this if he had just done what he had been ordered to do by an arbiter several months back.

True - but how long are Jeff and Joe going to hound him?

Ten years? Twenty years? Or maybe Lurie's grandchildren will still be trying to recover the money from T.O.'s grandkids?

Go after him till he pays! T.O. deserves a little hounding IMO
