Terrell Owens Deserves a Fresh Start

Sports Editorial

Terrell Owens held a press conference this afternoon to answer questions regarding news reports that he had tried to commit suicide. Owens, who had been hospitalized, said he did not try to commit suicide and was not depressed.

Owens, the Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver, may or may not need help. However, it's obvious the media who violate privacy just to get a big story do.

Reporters seem to have no concern for privacy rights. Where do the editors draw the line on what can be published? Maybe they don't give a damn about people. It sure looks that way to me.

Moreover, it's time for sports reporters to quit writing about what happened last season. Owens deserves a fresh start in Dallas.

Owens is an outstanding athlete and one of the game's top wide receivers. But he's human. He could be in need of a little more kindness and understanding. Like many of us.
