      Owens is a classic narcissist.

      He wants the world to revolve around him and when he feels it's not enough, he's stirs up some trouble to get the focus back on him. Then, when people get pissed at him, he apologizes to keep the attention going. Then, after he's burned every bridge, he starts all over again.

        "emotional problems" may be true, but it's no excuse. Let's name his "problems" T.O. disease. Then he can sue for discrimination.

            I caught a bit of an interview on TV with some
            of T.O.'s ex-Eagle teammates in the locker room.
            One of them said T.O.'s apology sounded sincere.
            But his agent killed him. MEMO to T.O. Dump your
            agent. This clown Rosenhaus (sp?) makes the Postons
            look good.

              Goon had it right - narcissism is a disorder that's sometimes clinical and occasionally borderline psychotic.

              We can call it "T.O.'s Disease" if we want - he is the current poster boy (him and Trump).

              But Lord knows he's got the money to seek help - he should try to get it.

                TO wants to get paid in the money grab that is known as the NFL.

                He may be a narcissist, but he doesn't have mental problems, he wants to get paid.
                You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

                  There are two basic differences between the Postons and Rosenhaus:

                  1. I've never heard the Postons cry about an existing contract and...

                  2. The Postons usually come through for their clients.

                  Who has Rosenhaus come through for so far? Willis McGahee and...who else?

                    You don't do that by alienating your teammates and
                    the organization that employs you. He has skills. No doupt.
                    But he's a terrible teammate. I wouldn't want him playing
                    for me.

                      Rosenhaus is a disengenous scumbag. Truly disgusting human being and part of TO's problem.

                          I read Rosenhaus' book a while back. What a self serving piece of crap he is. I can see why he and T.O. are together.

                            Actually, dev, you couldn't be more wrong about Rosenhaus. He actually has a HUGE list of clients now and the vast majority of them are signed and sealed.

                            Here's an article from the preseason about his client list and how much it's grown. All of the players that were unsigned at the time this story came out, ended up signing before the season began.

                            Offseason notebook: The truth about Drew
                            By Charles Robinson
                            May 12, 2005

                            Onlookers must have been tempted to administer a breathalyzer to Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs on the spot.

                            "I want to say a big thanks to Drew Rosenhaus …"

                            Yep. Gibbs said that last week, after finalizing a new contract for wide receiver Santana Moss. One of the most respected coaches in the business – and an old school guy, at that – thanked Drew Rosenhaus. Twice. And yet, it went almost entirely unnoticed.

                            To be fair, Gibbs is still trying to get another Rosenhaus client, safety Sean Taylor, into the fold. But it was interesting to see how such a moment played out in the media, where Rosenhaus is made out to be the villain on a consistent basis.

                            When Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said this week that wide receiver Terrell Owens was getting bad advice from Rosenhaus, it was big news. When Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre questioned wide receiver Javon Walker following Rosenhaus' advice, it was the stuff of headlines. And when Gibbs thanked Rosenhaus for working overtime to put the Moss deal to bed, it was an afterthought.

                            Nobody is rushing to defend Rosenhaus, who didn't return a call for comment this week. But few are putting the perceived wave of NFL hate for the Miami-based agent into perspective. While he has several high-profile contract squabbles that have some fans ready to declare Jihad, Rosenhaus' track record for success is being overwhelmingly ignored.

                            As it stands, there are four Rosenhaus clients that appear likely to hold out when training camp begins: Owens, Walker, Taylor and Cleveland Browns running back Reuben Droughns. Two others could potentially join that list – New Orleans Saints cornerback Mike McKenzie and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin (who has rejoined his team's offseason workouts as a "good faith" gesture). Lost in the wake of those six players is a Rosenhaus stable that could bloat to more than 90 NFL players by the time the regular season kicks off. Which means roughly 94 percent of Rosenhaus' clients have found some level of appeasement for the 2005 season.

                            "He deserves credit for that," an NFC executive said. "When you negotiate deals, you realize that's an immense amount of work. [He's worked] deals for almost two full NFL rosters.

                            "No agent has perfect harmony every year, either, unless they [are representing] a very small number of players. [But] Drew gets a bad name with that mercenary image. He's in position to be the [agent] who will go head first into bloody renegotiations."

                            Because of that image, a large part of Rosenhaus' success gets washed out. Aside from the Santana Moss deal, Rosenhaus pieced together a five-year, $31.5 million pact for Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Marcus Stroud and salvaged a six-year, $25 million deal between the New York Giants and wide receiver Plaxico Burress. In an even longer view, there are some who believe Rosenhaus has brokered more contracts between players and teams than any agent in the history of the NFL. Yet, that is mostly an afterthought now that he's engaged in the ugliness between Owens and the Eagles.

                            Within it all, there is a reality that doesn't get publicized. Rosenhaus is attempting to do what he's paid for – secure the best possible deal he can for his clients, as soon as he can. It's much the same way a team raises ticket prices when it wins the Super Bowl, or asks an aging player to take a pay cut that reflects his output on the field. Certainly, Rosenhaus' tactics can be questioned, especially when it involves having clients hold out and tearing up contracts with multiple years remaining.

                            But it's also worth noting that Rosenhaus' players are not mindless drones, who simply follow his orders. Maybe the most telling negotiations aren't with teams like Philadelphia, Green Bay or Washington. Maybe they are with Carolina and Miami, where two Rosenhaus clients – Panthers linebacker Dan Morgan and Dolphins tight end Randy McMichael – are seeking contract extensions. Despite neither of them having a finished deal, both are taking part in all of their team's offseason activities and plan to report for training camp.

                            When asked why they weren't holding out for new deals like other Rosenhaus clients, their answer was simple: Because they don't want to.
