I really don't get why there are so many out there. I get that SEC fans hated him because he beat them. I get that UM and FSU fans hate him, cause well they didn't beat him either. Its one thing to hate an individual on the field...but off? To be honest how could you not be rooting for this guy? One of the best college players of all time (not debatable) and instead of being content to play whatever just to be in the NFL, he want to strive to be the best and work as hard as he can to accomplish his dream of playing qb in the NFL. Its no easy task, especially when he has to retool and fix his mechanics, but my question is still, why do so many people hate him. I for one have my own biases. I am a student at UF so obviously I am pulling for him. But I also am Jewish, and have never once felt uncomfortable by his religion and his views. I fully believe that the haters out there are trying to nit pick and do not really care about his religion, but if they can be vocal to critique him, then they will.
For example, Matty, I love your dedication to this site and I love your coverage of the Miami Dolphins. But why does every Tebow post make it to the main page? You say your only passing information along, but we all know you clearly don't like him and clearly want to see him either fail, or take criticism. You have posted twice about Tebow in the past week... are we drafting him? no. So why so much coverage of the kid.
I know this post won't change opinions of him, but I really wish someone out there could explain to me how you could root against a guy who represents everything that is GOOD in football. A player who never gives up. Loves the game. Plays with passion. Wont quit. As opposed to all the other bad guys in the game, I just can't comprehend why there are so many people who hate him.
That's my rant, hope you enjoyed it.
