Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

Ravens legend Ray Lewis has been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Eagles safety Brian Dawkins perhaps drew the largest following in the crowd - based on the eye test of seeing green No. 20 jerseys - but Bears fans made their presence felt.

In the end, Lewis had sweat through his gold jacket, and much like he left it all on the field every time he played the game, he did leave it all on the stage Saturday night in Canton, as did his six classmates also mostly trying to say thanks. So thank you, thank you for loving me the way that I love you. "Please know that you all are in my heart".

"All of those individual awards don't really mean anything to me", Moss said. Instead, a humble Owens spent almost his entire speech thanking everyone who helped him through life, including his mom, his grandma, his high school coaches, his college coaches and his National Football League coaches.

It boasts one of our last great daily newspapers, the Canton Repository, the William McKinley Presidential Library, National First Ladies Library and of course is a bastion of antique and classic cars.

"I competed to be the best". "But just like my choice to be here today, I choose not to live in regret".

"When they knocked on my door, all of my dreams came true", Brazile, the man nicknamed Dr. Doom, said emphatically to close his speech.

Dawkins also delivered a powerful speech and, as he promised, cried during it.

"I miss that voice", Urlacher said.

In a press conference after his induction, Owens said that going to Canton would have just been uncomfortable for him, "I'm not going to do a dog-and-pony show and smile at the people's faces and be fake", Owens said. "I have already reached out to you guys individually, and I expressed, and I will express it again, my utmost respect for each of you and for what we have accomplished". Beathard is best known for helping build four Super Bowl teams, two as director of player personnel for the Miami Dolphins and two as general manager of the Washington Redskins. He also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and then-San Diego Chargers.

Urlacher turned his Hall of Fame enshrinement into a Bears family reunion and made one thing obvious for everyone to see: He's all grown up now. "Whether it is three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned".
