Terrell Owens enjoys his personal induction far from Canton

first_imgFormer wide receiver Terrell Owens holds a street sign after a road was named for him following his Pro Football Hall of Fame speech, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Chattanooga, Tenn. Instead of speaking at the Hall of Fame events in Canton, Ohio, Owens celebrated his induction at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he played football and basketball and ran track. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Terrell Owens came in wearing a suit spotted with the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and swapped that out for the prized gold jacket.His bust? That remained 600 miles away in Canton, Ohio, along with the seven other members of this year’s Hall of Fame class, leaving the stage at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga all alone to Owens.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ “It’s not because of how many times it took for me to be voted to the hall,” said Owens, who got in on his third try — the same as Joe Namath, for example. “It’s about the mere fact that the sports writers are not in alignment with the mission and core values of the Hall of Fame.“These writers disregarded the system, the criteria and bylaws in which guys are inducted, and ultimately the true meaning of the Hall of Fame and what it represents. I wanted to take a stand so the next guy coming after me will not have to go through what I and others have gone through. Whether it’s three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned.”The wide receiver who ranked second in NFL history with 15,934 yards receiving and third with 153 touchdown catches didn’t mention that Hall of Famers Dan Fouts and James Lofton also are on the selection committee. Owens later discussed his issue with the current selection process at a news conference that lasted 26 minutes, saying writers never played the game, with no “blood, sweat and tears” invested.Only one person makes a speech in Canton to introduce an inductee. By holding his own ceremony, Owens heard short speeches from five coaches, including three former position coaches, with James Kirksey and Ray Sherman from the NFL. The university named a street after the Hall of Fame receiver.A friend of Ray Lewis was at Friday night’s gold jacket ceremony and brought it to Chattanooga for T.O. The original plan had been to mail it on Saturday to him.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew T.O. said he had a Plan B in case it didn’t arrive in time. He also wore a “C″ for Chattanooga pin on each lapel.Owens thanked everyone from his late grandmother and mother to coaches from his high school days in Alexander City, Alabama, through his time at Chattanooga and into the NFL. At times, he was grateful for help received along the way, cited a Bible verse from Deuteronomy, and even thanked people who “defamed” him behind his back and teammates who hated him.“This is for you,” Owens said.Near the end of his speech, Owens asked anyone who had ever felt isolated, misunderstood or bullied to stand up. Then Owens encouraged them not to be afraid to be themselves.“We have more commonalities than differences. This entire speech you thought was about me, this was for you,” Owens said.None of his former NFL teammates could be seen in the crowd. Johnny Taylor, the 17th pick overall in the 1997 NBA draft by Orlando, flew in to see his former teammate inducted into the hall. He understands that some people were surprised by Owens’ decision.“He’s always going to do it his way and what’s beneficial to him and his family,” Taylor said. “Me personally, I’m excited that he is doing it here. It means so much to the city, it means so much to the university. It speaks volumes to the type of person that he is, even though other people may think other of him.”Fans wore Owens’ No. 81 jersey from his stints in Dallas, San Francisco and Philadelphia. Renee Davis of Philadelphia canceled tickets she bought to see Owens inducted in Canton and arrived in Chattanooga on Friday to see the receiver she called the best ever give his speech. She wore Owens’ No. 80 from his college days, bought when he was an NFL rookie.Missing the Hall of Fame’s other seven inductees and all the pageantry of Canton was no loss for Davis.“Can’t compare to being here with my favorite,” Davis said. “Can’t compare.” And yes, the man known as T.O. later brought out a big bucket of popcorn.Owens entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame in a celebration uniquely his own Saturday afternoon at his alma mater before approximately 3,000 fans who frequently cheered, chanted “T.O.” and gave him the occasional standing ovation. Owens also made clear why he chose to enter the Hall of Fame with a ceremony in Chattanooga instead of with Ray Lewis, Randy Moss and former Eagles teammate Brian Dawkins in Ohio.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“A lot of people say that I may regret not being in Canton 10, 15, 20 years from now,” Owens said. “But just like my choice to be here today, I choose not to live in regret. I will leave a legacy that will leave an imprint on this world forever.”Owens used part of a speech lasting about 39 minutes to explain why he was in Chattanooga instead of Canton, addressing the “elephant in the room.” ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextcenter_img Peza offers relief to ecozone firms Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ LATEST STORIES Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs MOST READ Las Vegas Aces waiting to hear WNBA decision on canceled game View commentslast_img read more

Finance, Afriland Bank, Ink MOU

first_imgThe Ministry of Finance has taken a major step in an effort to decentralize its treasury functions across the country, particularly in rural Liberia.The Ministry signed a memorandum of understanding(MOU) with a local bank to operate cash centers in two counties.Finance Minister Amara Mohammed Konneh last week disclosed that he had signed the MOU in Monrovia, authorizing the Afriland First Bank to operate the cash centers in River Gee and Grand Kru Counties.According to Minister Konneh, the MOU is part of an overall effort of the government of Liberia—through the Finance Ministry—to expand fiscal operations at the county level, by taking services to grass-root communities, in order to encourage growth and development across the country.The Finance Minister also noted that the MOU exemplifies government’s plan to decentralize some of its treasury functions in the counties, in a bid to improve their capacity for fiscal decentralization as planned.Currently, out of 15 counties, only nine are served by either commercial banks or the Central Bank of Liberia. As a result, the Ministry of Finance charters United Nations (UN) flights on a monthly basis to deliver salaries to government staff working in those areas.To solve this problem, the Finance Ministry has started to construct cash centers in some of the counties. The first step in this direction was taken by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Gbarpolu County. in July last year.The primary objective of the cash center is to enable civil servants conveniently and timely access their salaries, a Finance Ministry statement said. However, the cash centers need to be operated by a professional team; therefore, the offer to the commercial banks to partner with the government in operating the centers for mutual benefits is crucial, as paying civil servants in these areas of employment increase their purchasing power.It was in this light that the Finance Ministry sought the partnership of commercial banks for the provision of cash services and other related banking services in Grand Kru and River Gee Counties. Afriland First Bank, a legally registered banking institution in the country, expressed interest in the cash center activity.Afriland First Bank is a hybrid (deposit-taking and agriculture) banking institution. It is expected that the MOU inked between the Finance Ministry and the Bank will help to empower the local people through the provision of loans and other financial services. The government of Liberia will, this paper has learnt, use the Bank for revenue deposit and will partner with it to foster timely payment of civil servant salaries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bad Road Hampers Trade at Loguatuo Port

first_imgA bad road is said to be hampering trade at the Loguatuo port of Entry around the Liberia – Côte d’Ivoire borderThe piece of road linking Karnplay to the port is very deplorable and may certainly collapse if nothing is done urgently.In an interview with the Township Commissioner of Kpateahplay, Mr. H. Womenpea Sandi, told this paper that the present condition of the road is not good. However, he praised the government and its development partners for constructing a major part of the road, which links Sanniquellie and Karnplay.He added that Loguatuo is strategically located and it is one of the busiest rural ports in Liberia where a high percentage of reveue is  collected.Recently, when the Nimba Correspondent visited Loguatuo, it was observed that the entire road had been eroded with some of the bridges in very poor condition.When the UN was repatriating returning Liberians from La Côte d’Ivoire some years ago, The UN High Commission of Refugees rehabilitated the road from Bahn to Loguatuo.The road was also constantly in good condition and maintain by the UNMIL Engineering Battalion, when UNMIL officers were present at the border post.The withdrawal of UNMIL forces from Loguatuo over a year ago has left the road bad, hampering movement.In other developments, the police and immigration barracks project undertaken by the Justice Ministry has almost been completed and is awaiting dedication, Commissioner Sandi has said.The barracks will host the police and BIN security assigned along that bordering town to provide security, since the drawdown of UNMIL has left a security vacuum at the lucrative border port.The Loguatuo Port of entry is located north of Karnplay, also on the border. It is one the leading custom collectorates in Liberia.It is a rural port where plastic goods, agriculture products as well as livestock and cattle enter the country.The collapsing of the road may likely hamper the already fragile Liberian economy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
