Pay attention NFL: How Tim Tebow became the greatest value in minor league baseball

tim tebow2
He didn’t do it by boycotting the National Anthem.
If you don’t know about the “controversy” surrounding Tebow kneeling in prayer (and doing and a pro-life commercial), read about it here. Turns out he’s a big draw for minor league baseball. Guess sports fans aren’t so big on social justice warriors and their antics.
As reported by Darrenn Rovell of ESPN, Tebow is now a great contributing factor to minor league baseball attendance. From his report:
Tim Tebow contributed to the greatest rise in minor league baseball attendance in 23 years.
That number is quite appropriate because only one man, Michael Jordan, has done more for minor league baseball crowds than Tebow did this year. And Jordan — who wore No. 23 for the NBA’s Chicago Bulls — had the benefit of playing Double-A with bigger ballparks to fill.
Thanks to Jordan, the Birmingham Barons’ 1994 season attendance of 467,868 fans, with an average of 6,884 fans per game, still stands as a franchise and league record. Although Tebow’s popularity didn’t fill that many seats, the impact of the former NFL quarterback is undeniable.
Tebow’s biggest impact was drawing fans to games. Statwise, it’s fair to say he has significant room for improvement, but did provide notable moments.
The Columbia Fireflies, the Class A team Tebow played for through June 28, saw their attendance increase by nearly 54,000 fans, a 21 percent rise from 2016. The second team Tebow played for, the St. Lucie Mets of advanced Class A, saw attendance rise by 35,803 fans, up 37 percent from last year.
And that’s just the beginning.
On the road, Tebow’s Fireflies drew a crowd, too: to be exact, 2,591 more fans than the home teams averaged against other opponents. Baseball America calculated that Tebow was worth nearly $1.6 million in additional tickets, parking, concessions and other revenue for the rest of the South Atlantic League.
For the owners of the Fireflies, Tebow was the greatest value in all of sports. The New York Mets paid his salary — $10,000 for the season — and the Fireflies reaped the benefits, including merchandise revenue for what figures to be one of the 20 highest-selling clubs in the minors.
At most venues, Tebow went down the line and signed every autograph opportunity until he was finished.
Although Tebow hit just .226 with eight home runs and 52 RBIs, there were highlights on the field, including a home run in his first at-bat after he moved from Columbia to St. Lucie and an unforgettable moment when Tebow reached through the netting while in the on-deck circle to shake hands with an autistic boy during a July 29 game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tebow then walked to the plate and hit a three-run home run in front of one of the many crowds packed in to see the former Heisman-winning quarterback take his shot at baseball.

NFL Hypocrisy: Bash Tim Tebow: Wonderful; Criticize Michael Sam: Get Sent to Reeducation Camp

Tim Tebow

When Tim Tebow played in the NFL he was openly mocked for his Christian faith. Sportscasters denounced him, Saturday Night Live skewered him, and the media had a field day ridiculing him for openly practicing his faith. Despite a won/loss record better than half of the starting quarterbacks in the league, Tebow found himself unwanted and no longer playing football.

Michael Sam

Michael Sam, drafted by the St. Louis Rams, is the first openly gay player in the league. After the Rams drafted him, Sam was filmed kissing his boyfriend. Since then, anyone who has dared voice a negative opinion regarding this open display of homosexual behavior has been denigrated by the media and corporate America.

Miami Dolphins defensive back Don Jones tweeted “OMG” and “horrible.” The team responded by fining Jones, suspending him from all team activities, and “ordering” him to attend “sensitivity training.”

“We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment,” the Dolphins said in a statement Sunday. “These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program.”

Jones issued a mea culpa for his remarks.

“I want to apologize to Michael Sam for the inappropriate comments that I made last night on social media,” he said in a statement Sunday.

“I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment. I remember last year when I was drafted in the seventh round and all of the emotions and happiness I felt when I received the call that gave me an opportunity to play for an NFL team and I wish him all the best in his NFL career.”

Excuse me, but the last time I checked this was still America, land of free speech, and all that jazz. Or is it?
How is being ordered to attend “sensitivity training” any different from Communist reeducation camps?

Sam has since been congratulated by aka Obama. The message being sent loud and clear by our government and media is celebration of homosexuality and condemnation of Christianity.

More On Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

Traildust recently posted a great article on Tim Tebow:

https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/02/06/they-forgot-about-gods-quarterback/

Here’s more:

Prior to the 2013 season, in which he did not play, Tim Tebow had an 8-6 record as a starter. His winning percentage of .571 was higher than half of the starting quarterbacks in the league at the time, including Carson Palmer (.446), Kevin Kolb (.428), Cam Newton (.406), Jay Cutler (.548), Brandon Weeden (.333), Blaine Gabbert (.217), Alex Smith (.513), Ryan Tannehill (.437), Christian Ponder (.461), Mark Sanchez (.532), Matt Flynn (.500), Sam Bradford (.369), Josh Freeman (.428), and Jake Locker (.363).

Tebow’s postseason winning percentage of .500 was higher than the postseason winning percentages of Peyton Manning (.450), Tony Romo (.250), Matt Ryan (.200), Christian Ponder (.000), Matthew Stafford (.000), Robert Griffin III (.000), Andy Dalton (.000), Philip Rivers (.428), and many others.

With its satanic half time rituals, its support of gun control, the allowance of TSA agents and drones at games, its support of United Way, and many other acts, it’s obvious that the No Fun League has fully embraced NWO Satanism. As a dedicated Christian, Tim Tebow is a threat to the league’s agenda and had to be removed at all costs, regardless of his winning stats.

I doubt if less than five coaches and players are aware of the league’s true agenda, which is to promote NWO Satanism while making as much money as possible. The league, which once represented everything good about America, now represents everything reprehensible and evil about America’s enemies. And they are laughing all the way to the bank.

Why is Tim Tebow's faith such a big deal?


I first wrote about pro-life Christian Tim Tebow and how his “Tebowing” has some liberals all up in arms.  “Tebowing” refers to the prayer-like stance he takes on the field to thank God.  Heaven forbid he be allowed to freely practice his religion.  After an amazing win against the Bears on December 11, liberals went ballistic slamming Tim. Then the sicko proggies asked you to support Tebow by donating money to pro-abortion groups every time he scored a touchdown.
“Comedian” Bill Maher has been the most outrageous and vocal about mocking Tebow.  After the Broncos lost to the Bills recently, Maher tweeted (on Christmas Eve no less), ““Wow, Jesus just f—– #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler ‘Hey, Buffalo’s killing them”.
I saw this on Scott Baio’s twitter account.

Pretty much sums up what is happening in America today.  The pandering to Muslims and the “Religion of Peace” takes precedence over anything Christian.  The SRM bends over backwards to misinform you on anything related to the truth about Muslim honor killings.  In fact, it is preferred that you bash anything to do with Christianity yet don’t hurt any Mooslim’s feelings.
You can bash Christians all you want.  At least we won’t issue a fatwa on you.  But careful what you pander to proggies…I’m not so sure you are going to love that Sharia Law thingy.

Tebow-haters are sick

“You will be hated by everyone because of me….” (Matthew 10:22)

Tim Tebow is the Denver Broncos quarterback who’s having an amazing winning streak.

Adept at both rushing and passing the football, Tebow is a dual threat quarterback. The Broncos was 1-4 before Tebow began playing regularly, but immediately began winning with him on the field, often by coming from behind late in the 4th quarter or overtime. This year, Tebow is sporting a critic-defying 7-1 record, and becoming the NFL’s most talked about player in the process.
The youngest son of Baptist missionaries who homeschooled their five children, Tebow is a devout pro-life Christian who openly prays on the football field.

For that, he has incurred the wrath of the God-hating Left who call him all manner of ill names, including “annoying,” “disturbing,” “a douche,” and “the anti-Christ” — which is hilarious because the Left don’t believe in Jesus the Christ.
But the latest reaction from the Left is just sick.
A blogger with a popular pro-abortion blog is urging readers to “support” Tebow by donating $10 to a pro-abortion group every time he scores a touchdown this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Patrick B. Craine reports for LifeSiteNews, Dec 14, 2011, that “Sophia” of the Abortion Gang blog is urging supporters of abortion to donate $5 or $10 “to your local pro-choice organization…for every touchdown Tebow throws next week.”
“Sophia” writes:
“I figure this is indeed the best way to enjoy football, support Tim Tebow (more touchdowns, mannn!!!), and give, give, give to pro-choice organizations earning little to no glory, yet desperately in need of funds.
This is the same man that used the Super Bowl to a) build his reputation and brand as the saintliest saint of an athlete that ever lived, and b) raise money for an anti-choice organization that would deny the right to abortion to millions of women that need it. Yuck.
If you’re a sports fan that also thinks women should be able to do what they want, when they want, and how they want it with their uteri, you can join in this too.”
Despite receiving criticism for his Christian and pro-life beliefs, which has only increased since he took over as starting quarterback with the Broncos this fall, Tebow has remained unapologetic for his outspokenness.
In a radio interview last month, former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer had complained that the overtly Christian football sensation should tone it down. But in response Tebow told ESPN that he wasn’t about to back off his faith:
“That’s how it works because Christ comes first in my life, and then my family, and then my teammates. I respect Jake’s opinion, and I really appreciate his compliment of calling me a winner. But I feel like anytime I get the opportunity to give the Lord some praise, he is due for it.”

I suggest we counter Sophia’s sophistry by donating to a pro-life group each time Tebow scores a touchdown. To donate to LifeSiteNews, click here!

Broncos win, Tebow thanks God & libs get mad

"Tebowing"


In October I wrote about “Tebowing” and the Broncos quarterback, Tim Tebow.  “Tebowing” refers to the pray-like stance Tim takes on the field.  In October, a Detroit Lions player mocked this stance Tim makes.  And many have been outraged that Tim vocalizes his religious belief.
Yesterday was an amazing game for the Bronco’s and people are again in an uproar over Tim.  The Broncos were behind 10 -0 with under 3 minutes left in the game.  They came back in that short time and tied the game, sending it into overtime.  The Bears won the toss and then proceeded to turnover the ball to the Broncos.  And with that the Broncos scored a field goal to win the game!  After the game, Tim said this:
“First and foremost I just have to thank my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ and thank my teammates.  This is just, it’s an unbelievable feeling.  What an environment with these fans. I’m so proud of these fans and my teammates and my coaches. You have something special when you have a team that nothing is going right but you continue to believe and you stick together and you encourage one another and eventually good things are going to happen. I believe that we’re a team that keeps the faith and keeps believing in each other and that’s something special.”
And liberals’ head exploded after the game.  Here’s some choice comments from Twitter, Facebook and Huffington Post:

  • TimTebow lookin like a douche in his aftergame interview…god damn i hate him.
  • Tim Tebow is the anti-Christ.
  • What annoys me is the conceit athletes exhibit when they thank god for a victory. Do they really believe their all-knowin­g, omniscient god has favored them with a win?
  • When you have players like Tebow routinely attribute their victories to divine interventi­on (and go to great lengths to point out that they are serious about it, not just say it as a figure of speech), then it does get annoying. More than just annoying, actually – misguided and downright disturbing­.
  • I am disgusted to listen to your weekly references to your wins being an act of Jesus Christ.

I don’t believe Tim has ever attributed his wins to Jesus Christ.  Rather, he knows he’s blessed and gives thanks to the Lord.  I say good for Tim for being a good Christian role model for young boys, and being able to freely speak his mind about his beliefs.  And making Sunday football a little more exciting 🙂

"Tebowing" Offensive?

Tim Tebow drops to one knee to pray on the field

Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch drops to one knee  in ‘Tebowing’ pose after sacking Denver’s Tim Tebow  

NY Daily News: It took less than a week, but you can bet that Tim Tebow has seen just about enough of the “Tebowing” craze.  The second-year Denver quarterback got an up-close look at someone demonstrating the pose – where one gets down on one knee in a prayer-like position – Sunday when Tebow was sacked in the first quarter by Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch, who immediately dropped to one knee and bowed his head in mock deference to Tebow.

“It was no disrespect to Tebow,” the linebacker said, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “I was able to get him and had a little fun with it and decided to do some Tebowing. I saw it on websites, saw it on ‘SportsCenter’ and I said: “You know what? I’m going to try it out.”  Isn’t feigning prayer pretty disrespectful?  “No, not all,” Tulloch said. “I wasn’t praying. I was just having fun with it.”
Tebow struck the pose last weekend when he threw two touchdowns and completed a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter of a road win against the Dolphins, which set off the silly fad.
“What’s funny about it is how rapidly it’s caught on, and how much it has taken off,” Tebow told Fox Sports last week.  It’s probably less funny to him now.
As a Christian, I don’t like to see one poking fun at our faith.  I also get this is football and getting inside players’ heads and messing with them is par for the course. 
I tried to search for NFL “flaunting rules” and had a hard time finding anything concrete to verify if this “Tebowing” violates those rules. 
Does this “Tebowing” offend you?
