Even after all this time, Terrell Owens continues to get under the NFL's skin.
The latest example -- Owens' refusal to show up at the NFL's Hall of Fame induction ceremony -- has the NFL thinking about drastically changing their policy.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football talk, Owens' snub has league officials considering whether or not to implement mandatory attendance at the NFL's annual ceremony.
"Per multiple sources," Florio writes, "the Hall of Fame currently is considering a requirement that candidates for enshrinement commit to showing up for the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony before the selection committee makes its final choices."
The new rule would see all 25 semi-finalists sign a written agreement that guaranteed their participation at the event before a final vote is held. Reaction to the proposed rule was ... mixed:
It would be incredibly stupid to do this. https://t.co/B0kY8YFuLw— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) August 6, 2018
HOF committee to consider forcing the 25 semifinalists sign an agreement to show up in Canton before they vote.— Master (@MasterTes) August 6, 2018
They’re proving TO’s point. This ain’t about football.
TO got them boys scared for pointing out their hypocrisy 😂😂😂https://t.co/KPF8qP9Biu
So basically proving Owens point that the selection process is petty and not entirely about what you do on the field? https://t.co/DT6SDXFsEh— Kevin Van Valkenburg (@KVanValkenburg) August 6, 2018
