Once again, I see a problem with your comparisons. Let's take Ray Lewis. Yeah, he had problems but he was a tremendous locker room presence and leader throughout his career. LT was not a detriment in the locker room. OJ Simpson is weird to talk about since the murder took place after he retired and had already made the HOF. When OJ played in in the 1970s, he was a respected guy in the locker room, unlike T.Owens who created enemies.
The criticism against T.Owens is that he was a detriment in the locker room and hurt his team's chances of winning, and this is the reason T.Owens played on so many different teams. We wouldn't say that about LT or Ray Lewis (known for his locker room leadership). The problems are different. OJ, for example, couldn't cope with the domestic stuff (wife beater and killer) but he wasn't a nut case in the locker room.
I wouldn't vote for T.Owens for the football HOF knowing that I wouldn't want T.Owens on my team or in my locker room. I would want R.Lewis on my team and in my locker room. I would want L.Taylor on my team and in my locker room. I wouldn't group them all together as if they are the same. Apples and Oranges.
