T.O. Calls Tweet Fine "Ridiculous"

The offending tweet apparently equated the food quality with the Chargers' failure to reach the Super Bowl in recent seasons.

Terrell Owens says if the food is bad at the Chargers' training camp, Antonio Cromartie should be allowed to tweet his mind. 

Owens on Friday defended the San Diego cornerback, who was fined $2,500 by his team for criticizing the food service at training camp on Twitter earlier this week.

"I think it's ridiculous," said Owens, an active user of the social media network. "For someone to get fined $2,500 because they tweeted that the cafeteria food was bad ... then maybe they need to change (the food). That's his honest opinion."

The offending tweet apparently equated the food quality with the Chargers' failure to reach the Super Bowl in recent seasons. Agent Gary Wichard said Tuesday that he had seen a paraphrased version of the offending tweet and added that he is a staunch anti-tweeter.

Chargers coach Norv Turner says players should not criticize the Chargers' organization in tweets. 

Owens sees no harm.

"What's wrong with that?" he says. "It's no different than saying practice is too hard."
