I just don't understand this man. I am a huge NFL fan, and am an Eagles fan. When T.O. came to Philadelphia, he was pretty much given the key to the
city. He self destructed within one year, and brought the entire team down with him. He did similar stunts in San Francisco, and now with the Cowboys.
This man has been touched by god with talents I only wish I had a small percentage of. He is a physical specimen, rich beyond belief. He can take
advantage of everything that life has to offer. Why would this man attempt suicide? This obviously has to be a cry for help. I hope that he gets the
help that he needs.
