Hall of Fame voter: I would have snubbed T.O. if I’d known he wouldn’t show up

One of the most vocal opponents of Terrell Owens’ Hall of Fame candidacy has a new retroactive basis for opposing Owens’ induction.

Gary Myers, formerly of the New York Daily News, was at the front end of the bashing of Owens that occurred when voters snubbed him twice for enshrinement. In the aftermath of Owens’ decision not to show up for the Hall of Fame ceremony, Myers has a new basis for trying to keep Owens out.

Terrell Owens informed Pro Football HOF he’s not attending induction ceremony, Myers said in a Thursday tweet that has since been deleted. Unprecedented. Classy guy. If I knew he would not show up, I would have voted for somebody who would have. T.O was not happy it took until third year to get in. Don’t know reason he’s not showing up.

Owens gets it, and it could be (should be) Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys one of the reasons why he doesn’t want to attend the ceremony. Myers’ admission that his vote on Owens’ eligibility would have been influenced by knowledge of his willingness to show up for the enshrinement could be (should be) a basis for the Hall of Fame to consider whether Myers should continue to have a vote.

The plus for Watkins is that there is more time to do that this time around and it sounds like he’ll need every minute of it. The Chiefs want Watkins to know how to play multiple receiver spots in their scheme and the wideout said that’s kept him busy this offseason.

This offense is the brightest offense that I’ve ever been in, Watkins said, via the Kansas City Star. It’s definitely a mental challenge, but I think that’s kind of what gets me up every day and studying plays and coming out here. … Anybody can get the ball, and I’ve got to learn all the positions. I can’t just learn one Cheap Gaa Jerseys position.

Watkins will continue on-field work through next week’s minicamp before getting a break until training camp and the preseason games that will provide the first hint of how much of the offense he’s been able to master.
