Terrell Owens, former 49ers star and current wide receiverfor the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, will have two of hisDallas condominiums auctioned off in early March.While he earned around 80 million during his NFL career, Owens is now making amore pedestrian wage with the Wranglers despite three touchdown catches in hisfirst game action -- and is facing foreclosure on two of his properties. According to Yardbarker.com, citing a real estate site thattracks foreclosures, Owens owns two homes within three miles of each other in Dallas that are under water. Owens told GQ that he is broke due to misguided financialinvestments.
"I hate myself for letting this happen," he said in the Februaryissue. "I believed that my advisors had my back when they said, 'Youtake care of the football, and we'll do the rest.' And in the end, they justbasically stole from me." GQs feature on Owens also included the news that his Atlanta home is for sale and he sold a residence in New Jersey for less thanhalf what he paid.This leaves us with a simple question: Do you feel bad for Terrell Owens or doyou think hes deserving of this fate?

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York responded emphatically to the comments of President Donald Trump's views of those who take a knee in NFL games during the national anthem.
Speaking in Huntsville, AL, on Friday, Trump told a group of his supporters during a campaign rally, "wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired."
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to sit and then kneel during the national anthem as a protest against social injustices last season. As he did last season, 49ers safety Eric Reid has continued to take a knee during the 2017 season.
York was the third representative of an NFL team to speak out against Trump's actions. Since then, the Packers and Falcons have issued a statements.
In front of a raucus crowd at a rally in Alabama on Friday night, President Trump had pointed words for NFL players that are kneeling and protesting during the National Anthem.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump said.
Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled before every 49ers game last season, has yet to respond to those comments. But his mom, Teresa, made her thoughts clear on Twitter Friday night.
"Guess that makes me a proud bitch!" Teresa said in response to a journalist tweeting an article with Trump's comments.
