Even Dallas Cowboys cynics couldn't help but feel gutted for Drew Pearson upon finding out that he wasn't selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His snub leaves him as the only member of the 1970s All-Decade team that hasn't been enshrined in Canton.

Given the stats and hardware that Pearson compiled across his illustrious career, you'd be hard-pressed to find an NFL aficionado who doesn't believe his snubbing is preposterous.

Well, you won't have to look any further than Terrell Owens, who maliciously called Pearson out on Twitter after it all went down:

"I definitely don’t feel sorry for him," Owens tweeted. "Karma. He s*****d on me some years back with that IFL league. I’ll never forget."

In Pearson's defense, who didn't rip apart Owens during his antic-laced football career? There was simply never a dull moment with TO. 

Back in 2012, Pearson was the general manager for the IFL's Allen Wranglers, with whom Owens had latched on. After refusing to play in two road games and missing out on a mandatory team event, Owens was cut.

In the aftermath, Pearson took a shot at the wideout, saying that Owens had the talent to make it back to the NFL, but needed to better handle himself "outside the lines."

Clearly, Owens hasn't forgotten about the past, and even at Pearson's lowest moment, T.O. didn't refrain from taking a jab.
