    Oh......i thought maybe he was trying to beat his teammates to it.

    I think the guy is really unstable, and needs alot of help. Maybe he will get it and get his act together. Hopefully.

    This is a weird situation here. I just watched his PR chick talk, him talk and coach talk. Seems way too fishy on this.

    My thought, he did, he regrets it and most likely the pain pills were the cause of him attempting suicide as well as the method.

    His PR chick was wayyy to vague and refused to adamantly deny it being false. When asked specific questions she hestiated an stumbled on her words and side stepped the question.

    I kind of feel bad for Owens having this drawn out in front of the media like it is. I think he did attempt, but it wasn't out of depression it was out of not thinking properly from the painkillers.

    Owens wouldn't admit attempting suicide because he has way too much pride. That's being overlooked big time.

    Hope he is doing better.

    First of all, I'm not sure about Texas but if a doctor believes a person tried to commit suicide it is mandatory that they be institutionalized for a time. 48....72 hours. They would not let him walk out of a hospital if he truly tried to commit suicide. The hospital can't comment because of HIPA rules but they did NOT pump his stomach. If he swallowed 35 vicodin he would have had to have his stomach pumped.

    Extremely good points. I heard this on ESPN an hour or so ago as well.

    I didn't hear this on ESPN and you probably didn't either. Keep trying to discredit me, but I know this from experience. Not mine but others close to me.

    PFT.com always has an attitude because they are usually wrong. Just like the "Lord Favre is retiring" fiasco. Please post articles from real journalists....not National Enquirer types.

    I heard this on the way to school, and there is some serious issue going on here.

    Oddly enough, this EXACT subject of depression/disorders was what we covered in lectures today.

    I don't think TO admits to attempting suicide under any circumstances, if he did then he will be instatutionalized and rightfully so thus stopping his palying career for the time being (perhaps permanently, he isn't getting younger).

    I would want to see if the hospital staff injected/gave or at any point recently TO got a prescription for SSRI drugs (Prozac maybe). If so, that would indicate something bad is brewing underneath all this...

    And I agree that this isn't a laughing matter, this is potentially something serious that may lead to this guy becoming a nut case and having some SERIOUS mental/physical problems later on if the right precautions aren't taken...

    PS - I do think the part about his PR rep being allowed to interview was fishy, that just doesn't seem odd...

    go figure, the P.R. broad denies everything and says "everythings peachy!"

    go figure.

    I still think i believe the painkillers+supplements = sicky

    but i wont be believeing a P.R. broad, thats for damn sure, not in a situation like this, where she was somewhat INVOLVED. lol.

    I wasn't trying to discredit you, jerkface! It was said on ESPN specifically by Sean Salisbury and Mark Schereth or however they're names are spelled. If anything it was confirming what you were saying. Stop being suck a phucktard tight ***.

    Re: T.O rushed to hospital

    First of all, you do not know that it was a suicide attempt and you are the guy who wished for a lot of injuries during the Bears-Vikings game so........

    Re: T.O rushed to hospital

    Injuries from a football game and attempting to kill ones self are completely different.

    Why are we, as Packer fans, beating each up over what Terrel Owens did/did not do??? I think thats the dumbest part of this thread.
    I mean, it's ok for us to have our opinions of whether he did/did not mean harm to himself, but attacking each other over it? Thats just not right.
    If were going to hate on each other, at LEAST make it PACKER related! You know.........TT.......MM........Sherman........Rossley........you guys remember!!! :wink:
