Terrell Owens shoots down report about why he is skipping Hall of Fame ceremony
Terrell Owens has faced plenty of criticism over his decision to skip the Hall of Fame induction ceremony next month, and the former wide receiver seems unhappy with some of the rumors that are swirling around about why he is choosing not to attend.
On Tuesday, Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News said an executive from one of the organizations Owens played for told him T.O. has decided to skip the ceremony in part because none of his former teams were willing to host a party for him in Canton.
An executive for one of the organizations that @terrellowens played for told me that he believes one of the reasons Owens has decided not to attend HOF induction is because none of the teams he played for was willing to host/pay for party for him there.

Not surprisingly, Owens says that is not the case.

One of the reasons it took Owens so long to get into the Hall of Fame despite his outstanding numbers is the perception that he was a bad teammate. T.O. has gone to war with the media over those claims in the past, so it make sense that he’s not going to let it slide this time, either.
Owens has taken a very public stance against the Hall of Fame voting process, and that is likely the main reason he doesn’t want to attend his own induction ceremony. The decision has already led to some current Hall of Famers throwing shade at him.
