Union to Fight Owens Trade: In the continuing saga of the world's best-paid three year-old, the NFL Player's Association is seeking to rescind the trade of Terrell Owens to the Baltimore Ravens and have him declared a free agent. And why shouldn't the trade be rescinded? After all, Owens did not get exactly what he wants. And it is not his fault that he missed the deadline that every other player that wanted to be a free agent met. He is a big important person -- he cannot be expected to do what everyone else does and play for the team to which he is under contract.

I think it says a lot that the 49ers gave up arguably the best receiver in the game for only a 2nd round draft pick. A team should have offered them a pack of Wrigley's Spearmint gum -- they might have jumped at the chance to get rid of this distraction.
