Can someone explain to me why it’s a good thing that the House is doing all it can to get votes for a bill not meant to pass?

I don’t care if as of this writing Tim Tebow is hitting over fifty points higher than Jackie Bradley Jr. I’ll take Bradley in center field turning doubles into flyouts every day of the week.

Johnny Depp and I are the same age and while he did much better than me for most of his life this piece by Robert Stacy McCain linking a Rolling Stone profile convinces me not only that I’ve pulled ahead but that nothing is more dangerous to life and soul than being rich enough to make your wildest fantasies come true.

Jake Tapper’s encounter with Keith Ellison over his association with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan reminded me of something that Joe Kennedy Sr. once said about his son Bobby Kennedy: “Bobby’s my boy, when he hates you, you stay hated.”

If Jeb Bush had been in the White House instead of Donald Trump with this economy and these results from the Supreme Court Rick Wilson & Bill Kristol would be calling him the greatest president of all time.

When I see tweets like the one below I’m convinced that the New York Times forgets they no long have a monopoly on photographs, video and the means to distribute them.

Iranian protesters chanting “Death to Palestine” is the most significant international story that the mainstream media is ignoring today.

It’s no coincidence that the Democrats started calling Republicans “Nazis” became mainstream once the World War 2 generation Democrats who had experience fighting the real thing had died out.

Reflecting on the week in the Supreme Court culminating in the retirement of Justice Kennedy today, none of these results are possible without the combination of the unlikely victory of Donald Trump on election day and the even less likely act of Mitch McConnell keeping his nerve before it.

Nothing is more healthy for the soul that a week away from the net, the political world or both.

If you want to know what the American dream is, it’s a tiny family owned wing/taco place smaller than my kitchen that had a Mexican flag in its window becoming so popular that the folks running it have to move to a larger location to accommodate the business.

“All I was saying was that a losing team, plus bread and circuses, was better than a losing team and a long, still silence.”

Bill Veeck

While Tom Brady prepares for his eighth trip to the Superbowl in 16 years (not counting the season he spent injured) to close his season Tim Tebow who won a playoff game against the Steele’s before being crushed by Tom Brady’s Patriots in what would be his final NFL start is about to start a season in Major League Training camp:

Tim Tebow is about to receive his most significant exposure yet to top-level baseball competition. The Mets announced Friday that they have invited Tebow to Major League Spring Training, giving the former college and professional football star another opportunity to stride forward in his baseball career.

Tebow is among 13 non-roster invitees to Spring Training — a list that also includes blue-chip first-base prospect Peter Alonso (ranked as the Mets’ No. 7 prospect by MLB Pipeline) former Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton and Drew Smith, the reliever the Mets acquired for Lucas Duda last July.

Tebow put up respectable numbers last season in the minors and the taste of the Majors in spring training certainly can’t hurt his development and while he would be a longshot to make the Major league squad he will likely sell quite a few tickets this spring.

Of course there are those who have made a career hating Tebow for his unapologetic very public Christianity who aren’t going to be too happy and there are a few who figure that the Mets a planning on Tebow to financially salvage a season brimming with low expectations.

Taking that cynicism even further, you could see Tebow’s spring training invite as a test run of sorts for the Mets in preparation to bring him up for a promotional tour later in the season if the Mets are out of the playoff race and looking to sell some tickets in August and September.

Given it’s the job of teams to sell tickets there’s nothing wrong with that idea plus while his numbers in the NFL were never impressive his teams had a regular habit of winning games he started.

And if things don’t work out in the next two years with the Mets there’s always the Orlando team of the XFL in 2020.

The New England Patriots shocked their fanbase today trading backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the winless San Francisco 49ers for a 2nd round draft pick.

This means that of the three backup quarterbacks the pats had at the start of the year, none are left, two have been traded and the #4 man Julian Edelman is out for the year, meaning New England has two weeks (thanks to the bye) to fill that role.

Now while I suspect that the 2nd round pick for next year might be used to find the replacement for Tom Brady for the 2020 season but for right now we need something different.  Someone is playing shape, who wouldn’t mind being a backup, that you can get inexpensively, someone who has experience starting in the NFL and as we are talking a backup for the Pats, someone with playoff experience would be a real plus and if it was someone with at least a little bit of familiarity with the system that would be awesome.

Finally you need someone without a big ego who would add to,  rather than disrupt the chemistry in the locker room and that you could release at the end of the year if you decided to go long on QB drafts.

That someone?  Why Tim Tebow of course.

I can hear the cries now:  DaTechguy you’re crazy, why on earth would  you sign Tebow except to beard all the  kneelers and their supporters, and I admit that is an appealing thought but there are a bunch of logical reasons why Tebow is the best choice for the job.

Tebow has been a backup before and would love another chance to play in the NFL.  Because of his season playing baseball he is in great physical shape, dare I say playing shape.  He has experience as a start both in the regular season and in the playoffs and has had success in both.  Furthermore he was in the Patriots camp a few years ago and thus has some familiarity with the system so he would be an easier fit as a backup than most people out there and has a reputation for hard work that would be a perfect fit for the Patriots way.

Financially not only would the Pats be able to sign him for peanuts (without trading anything of value) but Tebow is the ultimate team player, a plus in the locker room, a hard worker and with so little ego that the thought of making trouble for Brady or anyone on the team would be the last thing on his mind.  Finally if at the end of the season the Patriots decided to go a different route (which they certainly would) he would,  rather than complain, give a huge thank you to the organization for giving him another chance.

Lastly if God forbid Brady goes down, Tebow has experience in big game both at the college and pro-level.  While not a great mechanical quarterback he is a leader of men, a person cool under pressure and most important of all, he’s lucky and believe me if you lose Tom Brady in to injury during the playoffs the thing you are going to need more than anything else is luck.

For all of these reasons if I’m Bill Belichick Tim Tebow is the guy I sign to backup Tom Brady for the last 8 games of the season and the playoffs in the hopes that I don’t have to use him.

Closing thought, if you’re the owners of the NFL this is the dream signing that would make the conversation shift dramatically and stay shifted.  It would have the potential to actually bring fans back who are upset.  It’s a win win.

At the Drudge Report there is a link to a Hollywood Reporter story where Michael Sam is pointing fingers over his failure to make the NFL

Michael Sam could very well still be playing in the NFL had he not come out as gay, the former St. Louis Ram told sportscaster Dan Patrick on Friday.

Sam, who played defensive end at the University of Missouri before being drafted into the NFL, told Patrick becoming a media spectacle was never a part of his plan, and may have hurt his first shot at professional football.

For those of you who spent last year under a rock, when Sam came out the media lionized him and while his performance in the NFL combine was not anything special the media and the NFL put heavy pressure on teams to draft him.

In the end the Rams used their last draft pick to take him saving the league from their claws, but in the end the Rams decided that like 98% of all college players who try, he just wasn’t good enough for the NFL.

Sam however got a 2nd chance as the The Dallas Cowboys picked him up for their practice squad but in they also decided to release him.

His next stop was the Montreal Alouettes but as I wrote in August that didn’t end well either:

Sam signed on to roll with the Montreal Alouettes​. However, he left the team in June for personal reasons.

The story didn’t get much better two months later. Sam announced that he’s quit the Alouettes to focus on his mental health

Think about that for a second, the player that the American media was ready to pillory the NFL for if he wasn’t drafted, has found the pressure of being in the CFL too much.

However his failure in the CFL apparently isn’t his fault, it’s all because of the bigotry against people who are gay.

Contrast this to Tim Tebow.

It looked like Tebow’s NFL comeback was finally secure when the Eagles traded the person he was competing with for the 3rd QB spot on the team, an important spot since their starter had been injured before.

But the eagles surprised everyone by cutting him and signing Stephen Morris.  Tebow reacted thus:

This week Morris was cut & replaced by another who wasn’t Tebow:

Should disaster strike and Philadelphia actually need to rely on Lewis, head coach Chip Kelly at least knows Lewis is somewhat proven in the NFL. He made six starts over the past four seasons, throwing for 1,296 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions.

So Lewis is proven as opposed to Tim Tebow who the last time he had a chance to start not only led an also ran team to an improbable playoff appearance but managed to beat the Pittsburgh in the wild card game before losing to the now time champion New England Patriots.

But it’s not just the eagles, there have been several big QB injuries this year already and despite Tebow’s proven record as a leader & winner no team has decided to add him to their Roster as a backup.

So how has Heisman Trophy Winner the two time college national champion former college quarterback and player of the year and the man who was a miracle worker in Denver reacted?  Like this:

“Obviously, you come to terms because I believe there’s a plan for everything,” Tebow said Friday in Gainesville. ”You can’t believe that God has a plan for you in your life and it’s a perfect plan and have doubt at the same time. They just don’t go together.”

So Tebow is waiting for, maybe even expecting, that next phone call.

”I’ve said this a few times: I don’t know what the future holds, but I do trust who holds my future,” he said.

No blaming the league, no pointing the finger at a media that hates him just faith in God and patience.

Now I’m not an NFL coach or GM but based on this reaction I certainly can tell which one of these two I would want in my locker room.

I’m old enough to remember when doubting that Michael Sam was an NFL caliber player was considered bigotry.  Well now after signing with Montreal in the CFL and then suddenly leaving training camp for “personal reasons”,  apparently it appears he’s not coming back:

Sam signed on to roll with the Montreal Alouettes​. However, he left the team in June for personal reasons.

The story didn’t get much better two months later. Sam announced that he’s quit the Alouettes to focus on his mental health

Think about that for a second, the player that the American media was ready to pillory the NFL for if he wasn’t drafted, has found the pressure of being in the CFL too much.

In fairness if the MSM had let him be and allowed him succeed or fail on his own merits perhaps his “mental health” would not be in jeopardy.  Perhaps if he continued to work to his potential rather than to the media’s expectations of him things might have been different but right not none of that matters.

The irony of course is the MSM that made Michael Sam draft position a cause célèbre will now without a question blame Sam’s failure on everyone but himself.

Meanwhile in Philadelphia another football player who the media is less impressed with is making waves:

When Tim Tebow completes a pass or takes off running with the football, fans watching the Philadelphia Eagles practice cheer loudly and reporters quickly post about it on social media.

Few, if any, players fighting for a roster spot ever drew more attention.

and he’s already impressing his teammates

Teammate Brandon Graham already predicted Tebow not only will make the team, but make an impact. Riley Cooper, Tebow’s former roommate at Florida, expects him to succeed.

“He’s one of the toughest players I’ve ever played with, and that rubs off on everyone else,” Cooper said. “I’m sure he’s going to do well.”

and there is no question about either his work ethic

 About 43,000 fans attended practiced last Sunday and many cheered Tebow’s every move.

Tebow signed his autograph on several Gators jerseys and even a Bible. He’s often the last player off the field and does his best to accommodate every fan’s request.

Nor his mental health

“It’s something you always have to think about when you come out here because you can take it for granted,” Tebow said. “And there’s probably been a lot of times in my life when I’ve taken it for granted. But you just realize how blessed you are when you come out here. You’re able to play a game that you love. That’s pretty special.”

But unlike Michael Sam who had an adoring media and an indifferent public , the public has long loved Tebow unlike the media or some of in the NFL even when he was winning for them

Right now, whenever Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway gets asked about Tebow, he effectively says, “We have no choice but to play him. He wins games.” It’s not really a compliment. It’s almost a criticism. But if Tebow did all this with a prison record, Elway would say the same thing in reverse order: “He wins games. We have no choice but to play him.” Which is similar, but not the same.


Comedians make jokes about him

Even his very existence was an affront to their highest sacrament

For starters, Tebow’s very existence is somehow controversial. He’s a walking pro-life testimonial. He’s been pulling off comebacks since before he was born. Pam Tebow, Tim’s mother, courageously chose to carry baby Tim to term despite doctors’ recommendations that she abort him.

You may recall that before Tim went pro, the Christian group, Focus on the Family, commissioned an innocuous TV ad that ran during the 2010 Saints-Colts Super Bowl game. It briefly told the story of the Tebows’ pre-natal struggle. The word “abortion” was never even uttered, but a positive portrayal of childbearing was all it took.

And so began the left’s hate affair with Tim Tebow. Radical feminist groups, media-types and liberal pundits alike lost their collective noodle even before the ad ran.

But through it all Tebow kept working and has been rewarded with one more chance to make an NFL roster.

Nobody can tell the future.  Michael Sam may pull himself together and with hard work might find himself playing somewhere, maybe in the Arena football league, maybe in the CFL or perhaps with a lot of effort and luck on an NFL team.  Tim Tebow for all the media, fan attention and hard work may never take another snap in a regular season NFL game, but there is one thing we know.

This weekend Tim Tebow will be starting Quarterback in an NFL game while Michael Sam will be at home and no amount of punditry, comedy or media angst can change it.

Do you remember Tim Tebow?  He won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 while still a sophomore and managed to win two national championships while at Florida.

He came to the NFL to the Denver Broncos as a backup during his first season in 2010 getting three starts at the end of the season.  After Denver’s 1-4 start the following year Tebow led the Broncos to a series of improbable wins leading to the division title & playoff appearance since 2005 and their first playoff win before falling to the Mighty New England Patriots to end their season.

Despite this success when future hall of famer Peyton Manning became available the Broncos jumped at the change to sign him and traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, where the Jets kept him firmly out of the starting lineup as they limed to a 6-10 record, the following year the Patriots signed him in pre-season.  He would be cut after the final pre-season game, ironically a game where he would throw 2 touchdowns in a Patriots come from behind 4th quarter win.  A 52 yard touchdown pass was his last play as a New England Patriot.

Though this entire Time Tebow remained a target for the media over his open and unfettered Christianity.

Many people attacked it,  protested it , sneered at it, went absolutely nuts over it

Tebow’s sanctimonious God-talk has led even pious peers like Kurt Warner to suggest that he cool it. Joseph could have used the same coaching.

If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.

(that was from a Rabbi no less)

and one, the cheating website Ashley Madison even put up a 1 million dollar bounty to corrupt it.

I guarantee that no man of Tim Tebow’s stature could survive a season in New York without succumbing to the temptations of the city,” CEO Neal Biderman sneers in a press release.

But his sneers, and the laughs of the others proved in vain, Tebow remained faithful to Christ even as the press mocked him and the NFL rejected him.

“I think number one is, what my mom and dad preached to me when I was a little kid: Just because you may have athletic ability and you may be able to play a sport doesn’t make you any more special than anybody else,” Tebow said. “Doesn’t mean God loves you more than anybody else.

“We play a sport. It’s a game. At the end of the day, that’s all it is, is a game. It doesn’t make you any better or any worse than anybody else. So by winning a game, you’re no better. By losing a game, you’re no worse. I think by keeping that mentality, it really keeps things in perspective for me to treat everybody the same.”

Tebow has remained true to himself and God  and while has not been signed by an NFL team, he’s keeping himself in shape:

The former Heisman Trophy winner hasn’t given up on playing in the NFL and wanted to get a couple of workouts in at the D1 Training facility in Cool Springs.

The only problem was that Tebow didn’t have anyone to catch his passes.

So the staff at D1 placed a call to Bill Back, who coaches the Venom, a Professional Indoor Football League team.

Back rounded up four of his receivers and they ran routes for Tebow on Wednesday in what turned out to be a pretty intense workout.

As one put it

“I can’t believe he’s not signed somewhere,” Back said. “I don’t know what the deal is. His passes were right on the money. His arm strength is so good it darn near broke my fingers. And he’s still built like a sculpture and in great condition.”

Alas there’s still that pesky belief in God that gets in the way.  If only he had been more like say Michael Sam:

imagine if Tebow had gotten up at the combine and proclaimed that he wanted to be known as a football player, not a Christian football player.

Then he started selling John 3:16 wristbands and eye patches on his website. Then he signed up for a reality show on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Tebow did none of this, he simply won games, sold plenty of merchandise and gave God all the glory.  Who would want a guy like that on their team or in their locker room?

Two thoughts to close:

First one can certainly point to Tebow’s personal stats as unimpressive and that’s a fair critique but consider:  Last year while Tim Tebow found no takers the man he replaced in Denver, Kyle Orton signed with Dallas as a backup.  When Tony Romo went down Orton started the final game of the season with the playoffs on the line.  Orton went 30 of 46 passes with 358 yards & two touchdowns

…and lost.

Finally Tebow has not played in the NFL for a year,yet he was still worthy of a jab at the White House correspondence dinner.  Could you imagine for one second if anyone had made a joke at Michael Sam expense at that venue?  You could not because the bottom line is among the media and cultural elites in Obama’s America there is,  as Jennifer Leclaire put it more tolerance for homosexuality than Jesus Christ.

Update: Tebow played his college ball at Florida not Florida State corrected.

One of the best baseball simulation games out there is Dynasty Baseball. It’s a face to face simulation where unlike most fantasy game you serve as manager doing everything from warming relievers in the bullpen to deciding if you are bringing in that infield with the tying run on third.

In league play you are also a general manager drafting players and building your team based all the factors a real GM has, is that fly ball pitcher a good fit for your park with the short left field porch and winds that tend to blow out? Do you draft that starting shortstop that gobbles up everything in reach for the double play who can’t hit his weight or the fellow who will let those balls get through the infield but send some balls over the fence when batting. Do you carry that 3rd catcher, that pinch-hitting specialist or and extra left-handed reliever for that 25th roster spot.

The most interesting factor to judge in the game is morale.

Each player in the game has a morale rating from A-F (C being average) A & B morale players add to your teams morale score while D & F players subtract it.

It doesn’t happen often but once in a while a result will come up based on team morale. The difference between positive & negative morale can be penalties for multiple series or a bonus for the same length of time.

If you’ve built your team and you find yourself in negative ground or neutral ground with one more spot to fill getting a person with just enough positive morale to move you up from negative to neutral or neutral to positive and make all the difference to your season.

And that dear friends takes us to Tim Tebow and the New England Patriots decision to release him.


Forget the team’s 3-0 record in games that he appeared in. Forget that he not only has a record of winning but the one time when he delivered under center was in the 4th quarter when the pats where down. forget even that he is a big guy that could be used on 3rd down or even 4th down plays slotted at RB. who does the defense cover?

What Tim Tebow did this preseason was give the press something to talk and obsess about that had nothing to do with the Aaron Hernandez trial. He gave everyone quotable quotes and as always carried himself as an excellent example in a clubhouse at a time when it was most valuable.

The Hernandez Trial is going to continue rolling on as the season progresses and while there is 0% chance that Tim Tebow would replace Tom Brady at QB in any situation with the game on the line consider this….

Imagine a week when the case is moving forward, every single player would be pestered with questions, particularly if the previous week the patriots receivers didn’t have so good a game. The radio talk will be all Hernandez and story after story in the press.

Now imagine the same week if on one or two third down play Tebow goes into the backfield. Maybe he takes a direct snap, maybe he doesn’t but suddenly every question is going to be all about Tebow, the press will be all around and every sports talk network will start the week asking about Tebow on 3rd downs and will end the week with them speculating if it will happen the next week.

The papers will still cover the Hernandez trail. There will still be stories in the papers…and nobody will notice.

With the season about to start the relative value of such a distraction is fairly small, once things are rolling it might be incalcuable.

Of course there is nothing stopping the Pats from signing Tebow back during the season if the Hernandez stuff heats up. Now THAT would be a story stopper.

And it certainly would generate a bunch of comments at the Huffington Post

Wasn’t it just a few months ago that everyone was talking about Tim Tebow finished as an NFL quarterback.

Time for them to cry:

The New England Patriots will sign Tim Tebow, league sources told ESPN.

The Patriots are signing Tebow, who is expected to participate in the team’s mandatory minicamp Tuesday, as a quarterback, according to sources.

Why sign Tebow?

The move reunites Tebow with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was the Broncos‘ head coach when Denver traded into the first round to draft the Heisman Trophy winner in 2010.

Many sportswriters have said Tim Tebow is no NFL quarterback. I submit if you want to develop into one being in practice every day with one of the best coaches in the league and one of the finest quarterbacks in the history of the game certainly isn’t going to hurt.

Mike Reiss:

Sometimes Bill Belichick sees something in a player — both on and off the field — that makes him want to have him around the team. In Flutie’s case, there was great respect for his competitiveness and history in the game, and how he’d fit in the quarterbacks room with Tom Brady and rookie Matt Cassel.

In Tebow’s case, he’ll join a quarterback room with Brady and third-year player Ryan Mallett. Similar to how he viewed Flutie, Belichick has great respect for Tebow’s approach to the game and his team-first approach, and it makes sense to think he’d view that as a positive addition to the locker room. Just as Flutie was the No. 3 quarterback in 2005, Tebow is currently in line to compete for the same type of role after the club released No. 3 man Mike Kafka on Monday (note: the Patriots kept just 2 QBs on the 53-man roster last year, so Tebow is no roster lock).

The difference, of course, is that Tebow potentially brings a media circus that Flutie never did.

I don’t think the circus. In both Denver and NY there was a question of who might start at QB. There s absolutely no chance of there being such a thing without a serious injury to Tom Brady. Combine that with a person of Tebow’s character there is no danger of this getting anywhere near out of control.

Bottom line Tebow is a winner and he’s joining a winning team with a winning tradition and a system that rewards players who celebrate team first. That’s Tebow all over, he’ll thrive here.

Granted the Tebow haters will laugh at him being on the bench but I doubt that Belichick if he can find a use for Tebow will certainly do so.

One upon a time there was a team that hadn’t won a championship in a long time.

That team acquired a quarterback, a quarterback who had led his previous team to a National title.

The quarterback led team to win after win, he was much beloved by the fans of the team.

But all was not well, Despite his success the quarterback on the field, he was derided by members of the media and the elites who downplayed his skills considered his victory’s flukes and mocked his behavior on and off the field and confidently predicted his failure.

The cries did not lesson when his team won the division. The critiques screamed all the louder and hoped for his failure. Even as the team won the wild card game they confidently predicted his failure as he headed to the 2nd round of the playoffs

They were rewarded his team was unable to win the divisional game. They urged his team to cut loose the quarterback and replace him. Despite his success management didn’t think highly of the quarterback sought a new one trading the first quarterback to another team.

The team signed a different quarterback who had a team to a National title for 18 million dollars.

The different quarterback lead his new team to win after win, he was much beloved by the fans of the team.

Unlike the first quarterback the second quarterback was treated differently. His success on the field and behavior off it, was celebrated by the members of the media. The elites praised his considerable sills, attributed the victory’s to him and confidently predicted his continued success

Meanwhile the elite’s hatred of the first quarterback still burned. That laughed as his new team refused to start him. When their starting QB replaced due to failure they promoted the 3rd string QB over him. When the 3rd string QB went down with an injury before the last day game of the season his new team refused to start him and finished the season tied for last place with the first quarterback on the bench without starting a single game.

But as far as his old franchise was concerned the first quarterback was old news. The new quarterback continued to win and the praise of all only continued when his team won the division and the accolades came all the louder as the team secured a first round bye. They anticipated his success as his team headed into the 2nd round of the playoffs with a bye.

And then with the game on the line, the quarterback that was considered a candidate for MVP. The quarterback that they paid more than 11 times more than the first quarterback threw a key interception and lost in the playoffs.

The extra 16.89 million dollars the team paid bought them one less playoff victory than the year before.

The two quarterbacks if you haven’t figured it out by now are Tim Tebow & Peyton Manning the team is the Denver Broncos.

Both Quarterbacks played hard, they conducted themselves professionally and honorably on and off the field but one was loved by the elites and one was not. Why?

The elite culture can abide almost anything, even belief and faith in Christ as long as it is not public and unafraid. Tim Tebow not only loves Jesus Christ and tries his best to walk in his ways but he loves Christ instead of the culture that the media and the elites rule and feed off and does so publicly and unafraid.

That’s a crime they will never forgive.

I’ll give the last word to Denver fans via twitter:

Apparently the cheating website Ashley Madison has put a bounty on the virginity of Tim Tebow. The Ashley Madison people are playing this for all it’s worth:

“I guarantee that no man of Tim Tebow’s stature could survive a season in New York without succumbing to the temptations of the city,” CEO Neal Biderman sneers in a press release.

The Bleacher report is outraged:

Of all the disgusting ways to gain publicity, this has to rank right up there at the top.

Tebow’s religion and abstinence are well documented and arguably the most talked about personal matters of any football player in the league. For whatever reason, people love to attack the superstar in any way, shape or form.

For whatever reason? Are you serious? It is his Christian witness that enrages them. It is simply silly to pretend anything else. They do note that Tebow seems to be above it all:

Rather than fight an uphill battle against those who will say or do anything for money and/or fame, Tebow chooses to shrug it all off with a smile and laugh.

Actually if I’m Tebow I do one better, I make sure the offer is in writing and a bond is put up. Football is a tough and dangerous sport and you never know when you will go from Playoff QB to punt protection so when the time comes when he meets the right girl and wedding bells will ring the very next morning the happy couple can go to Ashley Madison and collect the brides dowry.

And what a joke that would be on a business sustained by cheating spouses.
