Terrell Owens
has given the Allen Wranglers an ultimatum -- issue a public apology and cut him a check for the more than $160k he claims they owe him ... or he'll take them to court ... a source close to the football star tells TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Owens has been considering filing a lawsuit against his former Indoor Football League employers ever since they 86'd him last week. Owens claims they breached his contract when they cut him loose for allegedly skipping a children's hospital visit.

According to our sources, T.O. and his legal team fired off a letter on Friday to Wranglers owner Jon Frankel. We're told T.O. wants a public retraction regarding the team's allegations that T.O. missed the event on purpose -- because T.O. claims the team privately acknowledged a team publicist mixed up the dates.

As for the money ... our sources say T.O. claims he is owed $160,000 (or 4 game checks) the team still has not paid him. T.O. also claims the team owes him 50% of merchandise, tickets and concessions from his time with the team.

We're told if the apology and the money don't come by Tuesday, T.O.'s next step will be to sue.

Good plan. Go to court and tell the judge & jury you refused to go to the children's hospital, I'm sure there will be tons of sympathy.

Im sorry To that you suck so bad at football that no team in the NFL wants you on there team. You couldn't even make it in indoor football. I am truely sorry that you have become such a pathetic looser in life and career. I am sorry for you.

T.O. is in the spot he's in because he's "T.O."...nothing more. If he went with the flow and didn't try to be such a "sports" star...he'd be nìgger rich by now. Stop whining...get a real job. Indoor football is to football what ping pong is to tennis.


Since he thinks he's so good at catching and running...then catch a clue and run with it!

He's such an ARROGANT, WASHED-UP P.O.S. I hope the Wranglers spend a million bucks and go to court rather than give him ONE DAMN DIME. He's ghetto TRASH for not attending children's charity events, and I'm glad he was held accountable for his actions.

T.O wants a LOT of money! This just happens to be the only way he can get it, since his NFL career is done.

"...a team publicist mixed up the dates" but everyone else got the memo of the right date EXCEPT HIM. Now, I have three sons, who were the kings of lies in the early teens and that sounds like something they would have said at age 12 (maybe 13). How old is this dude? But for kicks and giggles, let's go with his story. The attorneys would get 1/3 to 1/2 off the top and our buddy T.O. would get the remaining which he would promptly waste on some bling because he doesn't want the folks in the hood to no his broke THEN we'll see where he's being sued or beating up a woman to make him FEEL LIKE A GHETTO MANDINGO.
