Ahem

The team that cut Tebow last year also happened to win the Super Bowl. Teams need many things to win it all, chief among them talent. What they most definitely do not need is a player who feels the need to tackle his own mother to prove... well it's not exactly clear what, but it was obviously meant for something. Besides, the Giants have kept David Tyree on board after his foaming anti-gay nastiness came to light; Tyree actually won something in the NFL, which just might be the key difference here. Or alternatively, I just got a 60 foot roll of tinfoil and I'd be happy to sacrifice some of it making hats for you. RedG (talk) 01:06, 16 September 2015 (EDT)

How did the New York Jets do after cutting Tebow? Or the Jacksonville Jaguars after saying they did not want Tebow to play for them?--Andy Schlafly (talk) 01:10, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
The Jets were awful with Tebow, so they could be awful without him. The Jaguars would be much the same, although the gate appeal probably would have made it a good business decision if nothing else. It's moments like these I'm glad I'm a Green Bay fan, I'd think you'd enjoy Aaron Rodgers for both the player and the person he is. RedG (talk) 01:13, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
My take on this is two-fold. First, there is some evidence that Tebow was cut from the various teams for being Christian. Second, there's also evidence that Tebow is also a below-average quarterback. Setting aside his faith, a team needs to have a player who can do the job at his position. Tebow ran the football okay, but he needs to pass it okay as well. And no, he didn't tackle his mom...cgi did that. Karajou (talk) 03:51, 16 September 2015 (EDT)
(reply to RedG) Half the players in the NFL are below average. Tim Tebow proved that he is better than at least two quarterbacks who are playing now in the NFL: the Cardinals' Matt Barkley, whom Tebow outplayed at the Eagles, and the Eagles' Stephen Morris, the quarterback cut by the Jaguars whom the Eagles picked up to replace Tebow.
Are they any Bible-quoting players allowed in the NFL? I haven't heard Aaron Rodgers quote the Bible as Tebow does.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 12:14, 16 September 2015 (EDT)

Boycott

The masses are consumed with American football. In the modern era, mid-day, late afternoon and Sunday evening games have dominated what was once a day of rest and reflection on Christ. It's probably a good thing to reexamine priorities and limit the NFL by unplugging. I do support the campaign and I feel Americans can follow the NFL scores/teams online without feeling guilty, just boycott live gameplay. If you hurt their TV ratings, that is where the bulk of their earning come. --Jpatt (talk) 14:05, 2 October 2015 (EDT)

Ultimately, every Christian can decide for himself how much support to give something that has become hostile to Bible-quoters (e.g., Tim Tebow), which breaks up marriages among players and fans, which leads to addictions, and which promotes the homosexual agenda (e.g., NFL halftime show). The divorce rate by NFL players is reportedly as much as 80%. One can still be a football fan without supporting the NFL. The more that Christians think about this, the less NFL games they will probably watch.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 19:17, 2 October 2015 (EDT)

Pontiac Silverdome

While it is true that Pontiac Silverdome has sat in disrepair for many years, it is set to be demolished by the summer of 2017.I think it is a bit misleading to include this picture without the proper context. --Stirlitz (talk) 18:49, 24 May 2017 (EDT)

Censorship of pro-flag commercials

CBS rejected a pro-American flag Super Bowl commercial, despite the fact that pro-Kaepernick commercials were shown at the beginning of the football season: [1] --1990'sguy (talk) 21:12, 1 February 2019 (EST)
