In other words, I hate TO. I do somewhat love to hate him too, so it’s all relatively easy for me. Yes, he’s a great player. Yes, he could really help out the poor Bills. But doesn’t matter – my mind is made up about him and I just plain do NOT like him at ALL. And in light of yesterday’s preseason lack of action, allow me to take a moment to rant now.
1. He does not play well with others.
It is a well known fact that TO is, well, crazy. Crazy good, yes. But going back as far as the 49ers, he was already talking shit about teammates and insinuating that they were gay to Playboy. Really? You really had to go there? Adding to his stupid mouthedness (that’s a word now), he apparently ‘wasn’t the one that got tired in the Super Bowl’ when he was with the Eagles (lets play the blame game!) and after running his stupid greedy mouth after pissing off management, away he went to torture another team: the Cowboys. He did lead the league with 13 Touchdown passes in the 2006 season, but still continue to go off on little temper tantrums. He ‘didn’t learn anything’ while under Parcels, spits like a pissy camel, and continues to have to spend his hard earned millions on fines from his stupid touchdown dances. So yeah, he doesn’t play super well with others.
2. He’s cocky.
Too cocky if you ask me. I don’t care how good you are, I already think that no professional player of any sport is worth THAT much when there are so many other problems in the world including our own country’s recession, but dude, chill. Simma down.
3. He’s a crybaby. And that’s his quarterback.
Ok so I’m not really making fun of this, or the fact that he’s a crybaby. But come on. The man goes from screaming his brains out and fighting in the locker room to this?? Too funny.
4. He supports low lifes like Michael Vick.
I’m having a little trouble verifying this one as of now, but I do remember seeing a few weeks back how he had tweeted something about supporting Vick. Sorry, but I’m not cool with people who are cool with dog torturing.
PDA standing for Public Displays of Asshole. Besides the countless times of bitching and spitting and just general asshole activity, he likes to do sit ups in his driveway. Look, people are even trying to do interviews or something! Yeah, and I sit out on my balcony in lower Manhattan doing Yoga for all of 8th avenue to see. What, that’s not normal?
6. He has his own website AND tv show.
And it’s on the ever-respected celebreality network king VH1, so you know it’s good. I honestly know nothing about the show, and will probably never force myself to watch it. But if you’re in the mood for some TO lovin’, check it out tonight and every Monday on VH1 at 10pm. And someone let me know how this crap is.
Long story short, yes he’s a seriously crazy good athlete and I recognize that and respect that. And yes he may help ‘put Buffalo on the map’. But I’m yet to see if he’s actually a good person, and to me that’s a big part of being a deserving admired athlete. So bring on the haterade – either for TO or for the author. But either way, I stand by my opinion until further notice. For now, Go Bills. It’s about the team, not one player.
