In this week’s episode of The T.Ocho Show, which should be renamed for now The 2-Ocho Show, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco discuss among other things the $25,000 fine imposed on Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour for an open-handed blow to the head that put Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the ground in the second quarter of Sunday’s game between the two teams.
“I liked it,” Owens said. “He’d probably do it again for another 25.”
Ochocinco said that Seymour “can’t be swinging on people out there on the field,” comparing the conduct to the WWE. T.O. preferred to invoke a different sport.
“A hockey player would have took that and kept on tickin’,” T.O. said. “It just shows you how soft Ben is.”
Yeah, Ben’s soft. The guy who played against the Colts with a pair of Mr. Potato Head arms, who made no attempt to tackle safety Aaron Francisco after an interception that resulted from a T.O. short-arm effort, and who made no effort to recover what appeared to be a fumble by Francisco is calling a guy who got knocked to the ground by a cheap shot “soft.”
Owens also has his facts wrong. Roethlisberger did take the blow and “kept on tickin’.” And the Steelers went into halftime with a big lead, and they weren’t outscored 42-3 the rest of the way.
