Shutdown Corner - NFL

Terrell Owens(notes) has burned bridges with every quarterback he's ever played with, so why should real estate agents be any different? The ever-courteous T.O. blasted his former real estate agent, Maureen Flavin, on his Twitter account today after she publicly revealed that he had signed a rental contract on a 4,500 square foot home in Orchard Park, NY

W/THE RELEASE OF MY POTENTIAL RENTAL @ 34 WOODTHRUSH TR, I WILL NOT B RENTING DUE 2 THE UNPROFESSIONALISM OF MAUREEN FLAVIN!!

Except for use of all caps and abbreviating "be" with "b", Owens sort of makes sense here. He claims he requested confidentiality and the real estate agent broke that deal. T.O. is the last person who should be calling out somebody for self-promotion and unprofessionalism, but that doesn't mean he can't be right on something every now and again.

However, seeing as how T.O. invited reporters and photographers to a house-hunting event in May (above, that's Flavin on the right) and gleefully told people that his earlier efforts to rent one house were rebuffed because of potential "drama", he loses all right to be mad after the agent took it public. 

T.O. will doubtlessly find a new real estate agent now and think he's going to be happy with her forever. One day, he might hear a stranger criticizing his new realtor, which will cause Owens to start crying and say, "that's my teammate ... that's my real estate agent." Then, T.O. will think the agent is paying more attention to other customers (maybe Jason Witten(notes) gets traded to Buffalo or something) and he'll start complaining and blaming all his problems on Ed Werder before leaving to find another real estate agent. And the cycle will then start anew as it always does with the biggest diva in the NFL.
