"It's not because how many times it took for me to be voted into the Hall".

Needless to say, Owens still holds a grudge against the sports media who determined his fate on the Hall of Fame ballot.

Owens teared up multiple times during his speech and got extremely emotional while talking about his mom, Marilyn Owens Heard, and his late grandma.

Moss, who received his gold jacket along with Ray Lewis, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard during the ceremony, was clearly touched by their appearance, particularly in-season.

"First and foremost, I have to give the credit to where it's due", Moss said. Such appears to be the case with Kobe Bryant and Terrell Owens. "He should moonwalk right through the front door", writes NFL.com's Elliot Harrison of Reed's Hall prospects.

For many, Owens was the very definition of a bad teammate.

Google plans return to China search market with censored app
China has in the past two years imposed increasingly strict rules on foreign companies, including new censorship restrictions . But jumping back into China presents ethical issues for Google ( GOOGL ), which has long advocated a free and open internet.

But his most powerful tribute went to his mother, whom he credited for showing him what a hard work ethic was growing up.

Near the end of his speech, Owens asked anyone who had ever felt isolated, misunderstood or bullied to stand up.

"I wasn't really too pleased about it, " Owens said of the Hall of Fame's initial reaction regarding the jacket.

Owens, a third-round draft pick of San Francisco in 1996, Owens played eight seasons with the 49ers, two seasons with the Eagles, three with the Cowboys and one each with the Bills and Bengals.

Moss, who ranks second all-time with 156 career receiving touchdowns and is fourth in league history with 15,292 receiving yards, spoke about his faith, family and his playing days during his speech. He portrayed himself as misunderstood. "I hope over my 13 seasons I made you Bears fans proud". You showed me how much I loved the game.

"I loved my time in Buffalo".
