Maybe it's because the games take to freaking long. The only way i can really watch the NFL is Redzone. But, that's just me. Inane...
Okay, so you're latching on to one word that I used to describe YOUR POST, not you specifically. You should move past it, but it is certainly your right not to if that is what you wish. I still don't understand what Kaepernick has to do with a thread about an athlete doing something nice for a kid. As far as Tebow getting a callup goes, I'm not so sure that your right on this. It definitely would be gimmick as Tebow is clearly not ready for the Major Leagues. Team have to be aware of the impact that this can have on other players and Tebow's relationship with teammates. I would definitely say that he will move through the minors as sort of a money-making gimmick type of thing; more jersey sales at each stop along the way. I guess we will know in a couple of week's whether he gets that call up.

Not latched on. Kidding. I like inane. It often fits. Like I said i rarely read the links they're too self serving. Often political. I'm sure Tebow has helped tons of kids. That's always a good thing. Athletes these days are too into themselves. If I threw this thread offline. Apologies. i know that rarely happens here...lol.
