Terrell Owens Released By IFL’s Allen Wranglers

The only thing for Terrell Owens to do now is go on Oprah……


Terrell Owens — once considered a lock for the NFL Hall of Fame — has been released from the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League … and his infamous prima donna ways are to blame.

Team president Tommy Benizio tells TMZ the decision was “performance based” — and added the final straw came when T.O. skipped a recent team visit to a children’s hospital in Allen, TX.

His baby mamas will not be pleased by this.

We have a little more info on what got him kicked out of the league.

Frankel cited Owens’ refusal to play in two upcoming road games that are critical to the Wranglers’ playoff hopes and Owens’ no-show for a scheduled appearance at a local children’s hospital as the breaking points in the team’s relationship with the receiver.

“Our fans are amongst the best in the league, and it is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player’s lack of effort both on and off the field,” Frankel said in a statement released to ESPNDallas.com. “We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community.”

“It’s disappointing and unfortunate,” Frankel said of releasing Owens, “but [he] could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.”

One thought on “Terrell Owens Released By IFL’s Allen Wranglers

  • I think that league used Owens for their own self promotion. Or, they wanted to wiggle out of that bogus contract. $500,000 plus an ownership stake?? ha. That’s NFL money, their league probably isn’t worth that amount. Also,they are using the children’s hospital to rile everyone up. Since when did bottom tier, arena football players do charity work? I don’t want to be an Owens defender but I know a powerplay when I see it.
