As a New Yorker, I can’t say that I am excited about Tim Tebow invading my city. To annoy me even more, Tim Tebow was “formally” introduced today to the media. I can’t remember another time when a backup, yes not starting, quarterback was given a press conference in lieu of being acquired.
I am annoyed about Tebow on the Jets because it means that there will be incessant coverage of Tebow doing everything, from throwing a ball in practice, eating dinner, holding a clipboard, running the “wildcat,” the inevitable starting over the awful Mark “off the Mark” Sánchez. I thought that there was too much coverage of Tim Tebow by the national media last year when he was on the Denver Broncos, but it’s going to be even worse in New York with the New York media making a story about anything and everything he does.
In addition, it bothers me to no end that now because of Tim Tebow, religion is now being pushed upon the sporting public. Sports and religion don’t mix. Sports shouldn’t be a medium to push religious beliefs on the audience. With Tebow now playing for a team who plays in the media capital of the United States, everything is going to be magnified.
