New, comments

We knew it wouldn’t be Canton.

Almost a month ago Terrell Owens made national headlines for his decision regarding his upcoming Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement.

In an unprecedented move, T.O. decided to bypass the ceremony in Canton, OH that’ll take place on August 4th. Fans of the teams he played for, NFL loyalists in general, and current HOFers all had opinion regarding this decision (one voter even regretted voting for Owens).

This is T.O. we’re talking about. Things were never going to go as they have for everyone that came before him. So much of his NFL career was about trailblazing a public path, and his ceremony is no different.

T.O.’s ceremony starts a few hours before the official one in Canton, he’s curiously picked 3:17pm as the start time at his alma mater.

It’ll be interesting to see if any future HOFers take the path that T.O. has carved out. Having a ceremony at their alma mater is one way to go, perhaps they could even choose their high school or where they played their NFL careers at. Imagine a ceremony at AT&T Stadium (although the HOF would likely have more to say about this).

Who’s going to Chattanooga?
