In this semi-regular series (which has been defunct since two installments in the 2007 season), we shall examine someone affiliated with the Arena Football League who meets Wikipedia’s strict standards for inclusion, and then attempt to either elaborate on the entry or make a joke about their alma mater or arrest record. Today, Orlando Predators WR Antoine “T.T.” Toliver.
The author of this Wikipedia entry would basically like you to know one thing, and that is, T.T. Toliver is a whiny bitch. Well into the Brett Dietz era of the 2007 Tampa Bay Storm season, Toliver asked to be released from the team, reportedly because he felt the team members weren’t treated like athletes; following a two-week period on the ‘Left Team’ list, he signed with Orlando, just in time for their pathetic loss to Philly in the first round of the playoffs.
Perhaps our favorite quote regarding the whole mess comes from coach Tim Marcum, who said rather eloquently:
“I worry about a lot of things: world peace, our soldiers in Iraq; I worry about my taxes on my house,” Marcum said. “I worry about a lot of things. T.T. Toliver is not one of them.”
Take that, mildly Chad Johnson/Terrell Owens-esqe wide receiver! Drama will abound when the Predators host the Storm April 26th.
We’ve caught wind Mekhi Phifer is brushing up on his football skills for T.T.’s biopic.
