    Um, WHOA...that would be quite a story. The way I heard it was how it was initially reported, I guess, which was that he went to the hospital because of an allergic reaction. But now they're saying he tried to kill himself?!

    ESPN.com just broadcast the last segment from Mike and Mike in the Morning, where they talked about it. They said that he had apparently been offered some mental health counseling by the Niners and then by the Eagles, back when he was playing for those teams, but he had refused it. I had chalked up all of his shenanigans in the last couple of years to immaturity, but it looks like he may indeed have been dealing with some very serious psychological troubles.

    Yeah, me too Dumars. Well said.

    I couldn't stand the guy because of the way he acted. Now I just feel really sorry for him. :(

    I've been wondering for a while if T.O. has bipolar mood disorder or is a borderline personality.He needs help from an excellent mental health professional who knows how to work with high profile people.

    I'm just glad he's still alive. Although I bet he isn't glad about it today. What a nightmare for him to weather through now.

    I don't even know the legal issues involved and his contract. He might not be a football player anymore. He better get his agent and a great attorney on the phone and come up with a story and stick to it. The owner will support him. But what will Parcells do? He has to consider the impact on the team. Sigh.

    I'm sorry. I'm just very upset. It's somewhat personal for me as I am bipolar. Untreated mental illness just destroys the life and spirit. To have great talent like T.O. on top of it is a curse. I never bought that T.O. was just a malcontent troublemaker. There has always seemed to be something else he couldn't control going on with him.

    I know everyone hates him, but to not see T.O. on the football field again? His beautiful physique, cat-like grace, his "irrational exuberance". I was so happy when someone took him. I thought his last game in Philly might be his last game period.

    Oh it's just the worst sports new in a long time for me. He's going to get raked over the coals, chewed up and spit out, and raped and pillaged by the national sports media. A feeding frenzy will begin with all these false expressions of concern, then as soon as the formalities of good taste have been dispensed with, they'll start in on the bios of his troubled carreer like he's already dead. Such an easy target.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! T.O. GET WELL SOON!

    The latest I heard on the radio is that T.O. is already out of the hospital, his publicist denies that it was a suicide attempt, and a couple of the people he's talked to (Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders) are also saying that he denies having tried to commit suicide.

    WHAT

    THE

    :censored:

    This whole story is already a huge fiasco. Who knows what the truth is, at this point.

    Well you're a guy so...you don't notice those kinds of things. T.O. is HOT! He had a touchdown celebration last year that was....ahem...clear throat...put Elvis' gyrations to shame! The gals that saw that game know what I'm talkin' about!:nod:

    What? Roscoe's a dude????? :jaw: I guess the name "Roscoe" should have tipped me off. But I just figured his old name was "Microwave"..which reminds me of an appliance...which reminds me of a kitchen...which reminds me of my mom...

    BUT...my detective work sucks as you all know.

    Geez, do I feel dumb.

    Well, no. :ner-ner: But seriously, it seems like an odd thing to assume on a sports-related web forum. How many women even post here on a regular or semi-regular basis? Aurora, armygirl, and...well, pretty much no one else, right? I guess there's Natalie who runs need4sheed.com, but unless clearly stated otherwise, I think it's generally safe to assume that we're a bunch of dudes.

    I mean, I've never seen him with a girl.

    And I've seen pictures of him in mini skirts and he looks even better than Terrell Owens.

    And I thought his whole thing with Lee was kinda like a lovers quarrel.

    Yeah, man. I did think he was a girl.:pound:What makes you so certain he isn't?
