Cris Carter rips Terrell Owens for skipping enshrinement ceremony

AP

If you thought Terrell Owens was being petty for skipping the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s enshrinement ceremony, then another Hall of Famer might have just topped him.

Legendary wide receiver and FS1 commentator Cris Carter just tweeted with great glee (and two exclamation marks) his thoughts on the matter.

“Terrell isn’t going to be enshrined in Canton, I’m even more excited to attend the PFHOF weekend now,” Carter wrote.

For the record, Owens will still be in the Hall, he’s just skipping the ceremony. His status as a Hall of Famer was cemented in February upon being voted in.

Of course, the rivalry between Carter (who was elected in his sixth year of eligibility) and Owens (third) has been going on for some time, with Carter taking shots at Owens’ character and Owens firing back in kind, while pointing out he had better stats.

That doesn’t mean either side is right, or righteous, as what should be a distinguished event has now turned into the kind of thing that gets staged on the lawn of the White House.

  1. As well he should. Grow up T.O.! We all have things in life we don’t agree with or have to put up with on a daily basis. You got in the hall. Let’s see, I could stick it to those haters in my speech or act like a loser and don’t go to the enshrinement ceremony. Now you’ll be remembered for that too dummy.

    What a tool, and is from a huge Boys fan. Never like him

  2. I don’t think either of them belong in HOF, they’re both terrible examples of big mouth fools.

    That’s “ripping” someone?

    ——————————-

    I just read it as Carter being excited that there will be less competition for the strip club buffet popcorn shrimp.

  4. TO is an all time great who earned his place in the HOF. Cris Carter wasn’t even the best receiver on his own team. Carter only got in to the HOF because he now works in the media and got in as a “professional courtesy”

  5. Why would Carter care one bit about T.O.? Whether you like Carter or not it’s fair to say he’s nowhere near as annoying as T.O. Carter has done well for himself with his broadcasting career–like him or not. The closest T.O. will ever come to that is on social media.

  6. I hope T.O. changes his mind so big mouth Carter will be upset, then maybe they can duke it out at center field at Fawcett Stadium, i’m putting my money on T.O.

  7. First off TO is a temperamental diva that is only happy when he is miserable !

  8. Cris Carter does deserve to be in the HOF. Boggles the mind of those who don’t feel he should be.

  9. Just out of spite; T.O. will likely be attending the ceromony and include in his speech a few shots at C.C., the Press, and the HOF.

  10. I’m sure he has his reasons and might have something else going on, but aside from a significant health or family issue, I can’t imagine what could possibly take precedence over a Hall of Fame induction ceremony? I guess I might be able to see the argument if you’d completely moved on from football, but judging from his lobbying teams to still play, it’s clear he still wants to be connected to the game. Does not parse, but for me anyway, few things he’s done ever have.

  11. I think Owens should show up for ceremonies at Canton in 2020.

    He would only be TWO years late, far less time than he had to wait.

    You can debate the personality until the end of time (and the HOF people apparently tried), but the numbers do not lie.

    As for Carter, the route he still CANNOT run is the fade…

  12. TO is tool! All that complaining on not in getting in the last two yrs now this? Now this stupid stunt! PATHETIC!

  13. @stubborndata Still salty about old Hilldog eh? It’s OK, go grab an ice cream cone and think positive thoughts.

  14. I think TO has it twisted ,,all the work he puts into looking like a Greek God is great but I think he thinks the world owes him something for that !

  15. Cris Carter calling out T.O. for blowing off the enshrinement ceremony is not “topping” T.O.for being petty. It’s pointing out what exactly what 99% of people think about the issue.

  16. There is a fine line between reporting news and interpreting it with an insider perspective and just using your platform to expound your opinions. Carter missed this line by a mile. I loved Cater as a player, but am tired of his opinions being made to sound so expert. I have an opinion on the TO issue, but it is overshadowed by my feelings about these kind of stories. So someone’s opinion is negative. That is not news. Now if they meet at high noon in the middle of the street…………..that’s news.

  17. Good for T.O. He realizes that the NFL is full of Anti-Americans and doesn’t want to be associated with them either. I’d like to see Trump invite him to the White House

  18. Iam not so sure this is fact I heard from his mouth that he’s was going to have his wide receivers coach present him !

  19. Chris Carter, vastly overrated and a drug addict, narcissist. Who cares about him. Find a fall guy Carter. You shouldn’t be in anyway.

  20. T.O. should show up. By not showing, he continues to damage himself and the way people view him.

  21. I cant stand chris carter he dosen’t even deserve to be in the hall of fame. No where near the talent TO was.

  22. First of all, Terrell Owens has some mental stability issues. I think it’s better for everyone if he skips the ceremony, which means that he probably will attend after all. I generally like to watch these ceremonies, but if Owens shows up, I’ll spare myself the ugliness.

  23. Who is anyone to say what TO should do. Its his life. His decision to not attend isn’t effecting anyones lives on here.

    I have never been a TO fan (no popcorn for me sir) but if he doesn’t want to go then that’s his choice. He’s the one that has to live with the decision.

    Stop telling other people what they should do and how they should act. None of you caught a single ball. His choice.

    And Chris Carter is just happy because that’s one less person he has to share his blow with. Nobody should take life advice from CC.

    OK fine you don’t like Cris Carter, and he’s been in the spotlight so often I don’t blame you, but man you’re dead wrong about Carter’s abilities. Carter had the best hands in NFL history and perfected the toe touch sideline catch. He played in an era when receivers were fresh meat and could be turned into a puddle if they went over the middle, and no flags would be thrown. Cornerbacks could also make contact with receivers back then, as long as the ball wasn’t in the air. receivers back in the 90s had to work way harder to get open. When he retired, he was second to Jerry Rice. If you think Owens was better, fine, but to suggest Carter doesn’t belong in the hall is beyond stupid.

  25. On the field Owens > Carter. No disrespect to Carter but when TO was at his best he changed games far more than Carter.

  26. When CC retired he was #2 in almost every statistical category behind Rice. Anyone who doubts his HOF credentials knows nothing about that era of receiving. CC was a great teammate. After his issues in Philly-which he admits to and owned up to, he made players and teammates around him better. Was he a sweetheart? Hell no. But he pushed to make others around him better. What separates CC from TO OFF the field is that CC owned up to his issues and didn’t leave a trail of bodies, teams and teammates behind him. TO was a cancer everywhere he went. TO was about TO. His delay in getting into the HOF was due to him being a narcissist. This latest move just proves it.

  27. Cris Carter was a #2 wr who put up his numbers against the other teams #2 or #3 cb, while Randy Moss drew the opponents #1 cb and over the top safety help. There aren’t many #2 wr’s in the HOF. The only thing that stood out about Cris Carter were his huge eyebrows. He most certainly is extremely lucky to be in the HOF because he doesn’t deserve it

  28. He does not show….DO NOT INTRODUCE HIM, OR SHOW A VIDEO OF HIM.

    Throw his bust on a shelf, in some corner.

  29. Owens put up some pretty good stats, but stats are not what football is all about. He was a malcontent for 5 different teams, with all of them letting him go. He’s been an attention grabbing, self centered, egotist his whole career. And he’s trying to grab more attention with this little charade. He bellyached for years that he didn’t get voted into the HOF, and the reason why was because he was “misunderstood.” Well Owens, I understand you completely, you’re an a hole and do not deserve to be in the hall. Please stay away, so everyone can enjoy the ceremony. I still can’t figure out why anyone would want him in their hall of fame to begin with.

  30. When you look at the character of guys being inducted now vs back in the day when the game had integrity……who really cares anymore? The Hall will become less and less valued moving forward due to the diminishing quality of guys now in the game.
    Sad but true. Barely worth watching as each year passes.

  31. Its the hall of FAME, as in famous. Who is a more FAMOUS wide receiver than Terrell Owens, and they took three years to put him in?? I really can’t say I blame him not supporting such a sham…if Favre got in on the first try so should T.O

  32. What did you expect from a guy who danced on the Dallas star and threw every single one of his quarterbacks under the bus. Nice to see egg on the faces of the HOF writers who were outraged that his character was being held against him in votes.

  33. These two guys are the poster boys for why the Hall of Fame is a joke.

    Terrell Owens is again proving why he is, was and always will be a cancer.

    And, cris carter’s bust should have been a life-size Randy Moss cradling a tiny cris carter.

    There was a time when the Pro Football Hall of Fame meant something; and, all its members were all-time greats. That time has passed.

  34. T.O. is lucky to even of made the HOF…Cliff Branch should of been enshrined 25 years ago 3 time super bowl winner 4 all pro seasons and just clutch clutch receptions …it makes me dislike T.O. even more the dude was all about himself thats why he never won anything thats no Hall of Famer..he had stats but no intagiables whatsoever ..he was a cancer on every team he played for…he begged and cryed to get voted into the Hall you dont see Branch doing that ever ..T.O is a joke ..

  35. It’s laughable how T.O. has made this whole event all about him!!! The media has no choice but to talk about T.O., the other inductees will be badgered about their thoughts on T.O. not attending “the event”. Whatever your thoughts on T.O., the dude is a brilliant marketer! We will be hearing about this all summer!!! LOL

    So OFF the field, someone who breaks the law (doing coke is illegal) and supposed to be a role model to kids is better than someone who has never had any legal trouble at all? Ooooook…..please try raising your standards.

  37. Cris Carter, cut by the Eagles because he’s a cokehead. Why would T.O. or anyone else care what a junkie says?

    _____

    Really? Give him some credit. He cleaned himself up, he got his career back on track, ended up in the HOF, and has been in broadcasting for 15 years. It was almost 30 years ago he was a junkie.

    Wow, hope your kids never do anything bad, cause obviously once you do something, you can never improve yourself…..

  38. No worries, now Randy Moss gets all the WR glory himself on enshrinement day. Never really understood TO and this is just another chapter. Whenever everyone else zigs , he zags. To each their own.

  39. So the Hall dogs T.O. and doesn’t put him in for a few years. So when they do, T.O. is suppose to just roll over and not be mad about that? Really?

    In real life, if you were treated badly by your peers and then got a bone thrown their way, would you all of a sudden by cordial and nice?

    No.

  40. Not the Diva on Diva crime! This is simply a T.O. me moment but one he will ultimately regret if he real goes through with it. Something tells me he will have a change of heart after Deion or someone publicly suggest he reconsider. Then T.O will cry through 45 mins of a speech and raise his profile once again! You heard it here first. Heading to Reddit to scoop everyone!
