Why I hate Tim Tebow

Whenever I tell people I hate Tim Tebow, I usually get one of three responses (paraphrased, obviously):

“Why? Because he’s a winner and you just hate people who are successful?”
I love Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, and several other winners. Nice try.

“Why? Because he’s a Christian?”
I’m a Christian. And I wouldn’t care if he was preaching any other religion either. I respect anyone who takes their religion seriously.

“Why? Because he played for Florida?”
Ok, maybe this one’s sort of true. Whatever.

But with the Tim Tebow era set to begin (again) in Denver, I thought I’d give you Teblow haters out there some ammunition. Good luck, and God speed.

1) Tim Tebow should have been flagged for taunting almost every single game in college. What you miss in that video is the announcer saying something similar to “That may be the first mistake he’s ever made.” Really? He does that stupid gator chomp to his opponent every single game. Why is he getting a free pass?

2) Tim Tebow lies. Sorry, Timmy. You’re not fooling anyone.

3) Is Tim Tebow the first player ever to show leadership skills? Was Colt Mccoy not a great leader and a winner in college? And he can throw the ball! Wow, no wonder he was on the board way past Tebow in the NFL draft.

4) Is it just me, or does this guy love the attention just a bit too much? It’s fine that he announced that he was coming back, but did he have to do it a second time at the basketball game just to get more cheers? They loved you and want you back. We get it. And then you had to go ahead and make a documentary? Stop it. Please.

5) At least try to be a little original.

6) Watch ESPN this week. No one else gets this much attention. As sports fans, we want to see greatness. We want to see history rewritten. We want to see what we thought was impossible. We don’t want to see a 3rd string QB go 11 for 26. So stop trying to convince us that we should.

7) Academic All-American in college. Twice. Guess they don't measure intelligence for that award.

With that said, I'm happy that he's getting a chance to play. He'll finally get to prove how terrible he actually is.

And if by some miracle, he starts playing well and starts winning championships...well, then God help us all.


  1. sometimes emotions just get in the sport and could be some of the reasons of the game twist.

  2. Don't you know that Tim Tebow is the second coming of Christ

  3. I don't really understand what your trying to say, he's a human being NOT god he is going to make mistakes
    As Christians we are supposed to realize this and Love each other even when mistakes happen
    We are supposed to look at the good in people, not search for the bad and condem
    Who are we to judge?

    1. Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
      -Matthew 7:1

  4. Dude, these are wide off the mark. Jumping to conclusions with information that isn't even legitimate is lame. So much for ammunition.

    If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don't love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? - 1 John 4:20

  5. settle down, kids

    This is a Sports Blog. We're not talking about real life. Hating people in sports is completely different from hating others in real life. I've never met the guy, never met Kobe Bryant, never met Ray Lewis, never met Derek Jeter, never met any of these guys. My opinion of them is based solely on what happens during their games. And if they're allowed to be unjustly praised by people who don't know them,why can't I unjustly mock him without ever knowing him?

    It's just a stupid game. This is just a silly little blog, where we like to make jokes. "Jumping to conclusions" when the connections don't even make sense is part of the comedy.

    Don't be so quick to judge me.
