Folks, don’t be fooled by this Keyshawn Johnson fool. What we need to do is review what’s really going on here. Please see the video in this post and listen to the set-up questions, the relays back and forth, and the ESPN commentary in between the takes. It’s unbelievable how ESPN is making this set up of Terrell Owens so obvious.
First off, Keyshawn begins his rant as Tom Jackson sits there shaking his head, saying “preach it. preach it.” All the while, Keyshawn is trying to defend Bill Parcells as the creator of the current Dallas Cowboys team, arguing that he deserves respect because the team wouldn’t be doing as well if it weren’t for Parcells.
“Bill Parcell’s built it,” Keyshawn said. I don’t argue this point. Bill Parcells did help move the Cowboys to a new direction, but he never won a playoff game. And if Terrell Owens wants to say he doesn’t like Bill or his style, that’s his damn choice. A lot of players didn’t like him on this current team. But Keyshawn is going overboard here. And ESPN is sparking the friction.
Trey Wingo, ESPN commentator, tries to mask his bias by saying Keyshawn is right, that Owens is having a “heck of a year,” leading the NFL in yards and second in touchdowns. But, then he says: “And apparently, Owens does have bigger fish to fry like yelling at Keyshawn Johnson.”
Are you kidding me? What kind of intro is that? What would you do as a professional football player if Keyshawn is preaching to you about behavior and character? I personally thought Owens replied with humor and class. Owens finishes and then Wingo heads back to Keyshawn, who is readily available to comment, with the intro: “Keyshawn what’s your reaction to T.O.’s sort of over-the-top reaction?”
Over the top? Really, Wingo? Are you serious? Keyshawn then continues on for a minute bashing Owens and kissing Parcell’s sack.
“I was always taught to never get into a pissing match with a skunk because they will piss all over you and they like it.”
Classy, Keyshawn. Real classy.
“Why do you think that T.O. chose to do this, Keyshawn?” Wingo asks, as if he has completely forgotten who started this problem. “If you listen to what you said you did say that he was having a heck of a year and you did say that you would give him your vote for player of the year.” All this time, there is a screen with Owens sitting on a bench, and the words: “Terrell Owens calls out Keyshawn Johnson.”
Wingo? Are you EFFING serious? Someone please tell me you can see this scam unraveling?
“I was just trying to help him,” Keyshawn said. “I chose to walk away from the game because I did have bigger fish to fry.” Keyshawn even uses Wingo’s same “fish to fry” words to end his tirade.
Come on folks, is this a set up or what? Is ESPN and Bill Parcells trying to destroy the Cowboys season?
