    The talking head asked him why he was wearing a Shaq jersey, and not shilling to the Dallas fans. He said Shaq was like family, and you have to go with your blood, and that he'd win over the Dallas fans in the football season. Had a good mini-camp, enjoying the area, yada, yada, yada.

    When asked who he was rooting for, he said he was a basketball fan and had friends on both sides, so he'd be happy either way.

    Besides the fact that he was wearing a Heat jersey, he really had nothing to say of substance.

    He said he had a great time at mini camp and that he and Parcells get along great and that they have similar personalities.

    if he had friends on both sides, he probably should have worn a mavs jersey.

    that's T.O. bein T.O. (irvin jersey to the cowboys game, etc)


    if he wore a mavs jersey no one would be as interested, and he's just GOTTA get some attention.

    :rolleyes:

    Naw, I'm a Heat fan.. I've seen TO in many of our home games wearing that Shaq jersey.. So I wasn't really amazed when I saw him yesterday.. Although, I didn't think he'd wear a Mavs cap.. :laugh1:

    I can believe that part about them having similar personalities. Both are egomaniacs, both have quit on their teams (Parcells looking for a job with the Jets while supposedly coaching the Pats in a Superbowl), both have run out on contracts...yeah I can see it.

    God forbid you can't be a fan of another sport team.

    Yeah, I heard his publicist talking with a guy who was scoring TO the tickets for the game. I thought 'Jeez, he isn't even here at his own football camp but he's trying to score tix for an NBA game. Talk about messed up priorities.'

    And if he wore a Mavericks cap, he would be called out as a phony who was trying to suck up to the locals.

    No win situation. I couldn't imagine having to watch every little tinny thing that I do, so that people won't run with a story.

    A Cowboy can't stop and take a leak behind a dumpster without seeming like a misfit or something. Some people are a bit too touchy.

    well, it doesn't bother me, but i'm not a mavs fan, either.

    but i could see that rubbing some 'all dallas' fans the wrong way.

    but why wear a jersey at all? you can go to the game, cheer for the Heat, and end up bothering a lot less people. answer...b/c he wants the attention.

    just my two cents.

    I thought he was wearing a Mavs cap, albeit it backwards.

    I was at the TO youth football camp. TO was absent all day long. Didn't show up until 5pm. At around 1pm TO called his publicist and told her to score him some Mavs tickets. I heard the publicist taking the call. I was saying that I thought TO's priorities are screwed up.

    Heat jersey, but supposedly had a Mavs hat on. He is good friends with Shaq as well as Jason Terry. If Cowboys fans are going to get upset because he wants the Heat to win (not that he does) then those Cowboys fans need to get a life.

    Just because he is in the DFW area doesn't mean he has to be a Rangers, Mavericks or Stars fan, just as long as he's a Cowboys fan.

    Exactly.

    And if he suddenly became one, people would question his sincerity there too.

    Let him be.
