The only problem was that the night came to an awkward end when the 9-year old intercepted one of his passes and returned it for a touchdown.

Kind of hard to do that when the giving is taking her out to an awards show. As well, while I generally follow this rule (except for telling people where my donations go), this is the kind of publicity that can ratchet up donations and allow them to do more good.

Yeah, it's not Tebow I hate. I hate his religion. I hate the hype that ESPN engages in. I hate that he's a QB when he should be a TE or FB. But Tebow himself seems like a good guy.

Whatever people have to say about his open stance towards religion and whatnot he really does come across as being just an incredibly nice guy who is using how people see him as a means to make people happy.

I just don't even see why his religion is a big deal. Baseball players and soccer players have been crossing themselves for as long as I can remember and I've seen clips of football teams huddled together for team prayers before a big game.

I'm an atheist, so I find the concept of believing the creator of the entire universe somehow gives a crap about who wins a sporting event patently ludicrous, but whatever - it's not even something new. I can't speak for whether or not he's a good quaterback, but considering he's a starter in the best league in the world, I assume he's got the talent.

It just seems like more than just people being angry at ESPN, people seemed to really want this guy to lose.

I can't stand it when religion is thrown into my face.

I felt like Tebow, for weeks, was throwing his religion into my face then I realized something important:

It wasn't Tebow throwing his religion into my face, it was the MEDIA throwing his religion into my face.

So he farking makes the sign of the cross or acknowledges a power-that-be.

Let him. Whatever source that helps him to do better, support it.

For me, I thrive on a few hours of sleep after knocking back a dozen beers or so.

Mind you, I might be a bear waking up but my services are still A+.

I think a lot of it is also backlash against a small but very vocal group of people that were clamoring for him to be made the starter and built him up as the second-coming of John Elway because he shared their religious beliefs. After you hear enough of it you start rooting against whatever they're for in hopes that they'll just shut the hell up already.

As a person he seems like a genuinely good human being, and I have nothing against him as a person. But as a long-time fan of the NFL I got really tired of the constant hype and seeing his completely mediocre performance (as a quarterback) being hoisted up as though it were an accomplishment. It got to the point where I was actually rooting for the patriots to knock them out of the playoffs, and as a Cots fan that made me feel all kinds of dirty. But then the super bowl washed most of that away, so I guess I'm not bitter about it anymore.

Thanks for the perspective. I don't watch a lot of football (hardly any really) so I guess I missed out on all the hype that came before the hate. If the media was constantly saturated with talk about this guy I could see how that would get old, fast. I just got a real "omg, god-boy prays during each game! Let's laugh at him and hope he loses" which just made no sense to me, for the reasons I already listed.

I never understood the Tebow hate. So what if he starts off a postgame with 'First, I'd like to thank God. Now, about that pass rush....'. WHO CARES? I am not a Denver fan and never have been, and I think they certainly could have picked a worse frontman than Tebow. He is universally acclaimed as a nice guy, seems very humble and when he gets praised he likes to spread the accolades around to the players around him.

Tebow himself is on record as saying that he doesn't think God cares who wins a football game. It's just sports. So that's even one less reason to hate him.

I think it comes down to a combination of (a) the Religious Right are such a bunch of insufferable dicks that we don't want them to have something to cheer about, or to find ourselves on the same side as them on any subject and (b) shut the fark up, ESPN. And as far as (b) goes, I'm just as sick of hearing what a great guy Drew Brees is and how he personally saved the entire city of New Orleans.

It's almost as if it were impossible to follow all the guidelines laid out by a 2000 year-old dead Jewish day laborer. Maybe good deeds can be done just for the sake of a good deed, no Jesus necessary.

No disparagement intended. He did a wonderful, beautiful thing. And Jesus had nothing to do with it. By pointing out that certain Biblical teachings might condemn this unselfish act I'd hoped to make the case that one need not look towards outdated belief systems for moral guidance.

No, you tried to make a point by taking a passage of Scripture out of context, and failed. Jesus was referring to the hypocrites who did things SOLELY so they could be seen by others and admired. Are you privy to some information that might unveil Tebow as a hypocrite? By every indication he has been doing his thing long before he even stepped foot on the UF campus.

People interpret the Bible in different ways. There are sects of Christianity that would condemn Tebow not only on these grounds but also if he gave her medical treatment (Christian Scientists) or certain aspects of that treatment (Jehovah's Witness') or even if he just paid for it (Republicans). Once again though, I am not condemning him nor calling him a hypocrite.
