Terrell Owens made it known that he was not going to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on August 4, and now the Hall has informed him they'll be reciprocating the level of respect he displayed.
While Owens will be making his speech at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Hall will not be mentioning him whatsoever, and will be mailing him the gold jacket he earned with little fanfare.
The Hall of Fame is going to mail T.O. his gold jacket and his name won't be mentioned individually during the ceremony. Sounds about right: https://t.co/3eYlf3FS1E— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) July 12, 2018
It took the voters forever to induct T.O., and now they are going to continue to disrespect one of the greatest wide receivers of all time by acting like he doesn't exist.
Instead, they will be sending his jacket via mail the day after the dinner and will only include him in the images of the Class of 2018. Nothing more, nothing less.
"There's no reason to bring him up as an individual," said the Hall's executive director, Joe Horrigan. "He's not here."
It looks like the Hall of Fame is going as far as they can to make sure they don't include Terrell Owens in virtually anything they do, which is an upsetting ending for Owens, who won't let the disrespect go long enough to simply enjoy a ceremony on-site.
