The NFL goes gaga over the first openly gay player so much so that it calls around to get him a slot on a practice squad and then holds a conference for the signing (have you ever seen a conference for a practice squad signing?).
Ray Rice was arrested for assaulting his then fiancee and Adrian Petersen is under indictment for abusing his child.
Over 20 players have been involved in domestic violence incidents, a number involved in fights in general and there are plenty of alcohol related incidents to go around.
Tim Tebow was not the greatest player in the NFL but he has skill and he can play. Teams did not want to take a chance on him because of the hoopla that followed him around for his open expressions of faith.
I wonder how many teams would rather have the distractions caused by Tebow than those caused by Rice or Petersen?
In other news about faith distractions; RGIII had to turn a shirt with Jesus’ name on it inside out for his press conference. I wonder if he wore a gay pride shirt would he have had to turn it inside out?
Good thing no one wanted Tebow or there might be some kind of media frenzy around the NFL that takes the focus off football.
Never surrender, never submit.
