    Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    I think I'm beginning to figure out why some people don't like Tim Tebow. He kind of has a flair for the dramatic.

    Tebow rips off sling, assures fans he's OK - College Football - Rivals.com

    I mean, really, is it necessary to make a show out of taking off your sling in front of thousands of fans?

    Yeah. He's a heck of an athlete, no doubt. I do think he loves all the attention. Hope he enjoys it in college...

    Tebow is a shill and I'm tired of seeing his mug.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    I think this is being slightly blown out of proportion... But with all the other Tebow love it does seem a bit over the top.

    FWIW, I didn't quite understand the hate for Tebow (or at least for all of the coverage of him). But when I saw this story, my first reaction was to question why he would do such a thing? The only thing I can come up with is that he likes the attention.

    I have nothing against Tebow. It's the media's lovefest for him that tires me. That announcer during the BCS title game... I wanted to puke. He sounded like a lovestruck teenager.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    agreed there benjy. i actually spent the last year trying to hate tebow, because i despise all things SEC, and i realized i cannot hate him.

    and for those who say "enjoy it now tebow, you wont make it in the pros," if i am an NFL gm, i take a reach on tebow in the second round. he will never be the prototype NFL qb, but he just oozes heart. he will play somewhere, even if he is only a special teams standout ala brendon ayabadajeo. and he would certainly be a fan favorite, as long as he wasnt taken i nround 1.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    I don't hate him, but during the national championship game, when he jumped up after a run and started going nuts in an obvious attempt to pump his team up, I noticed that not one of his teammates joined in, and most didn't even look at him.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    They probably get sick of the media attention he gets too. Or maybe he's an egomaniac and nobody on the team likes him. /shrug

    Wow, I was surprised that Mac did not get a standing "O" especially since he was responsible for the win.

    I'm surprised you felt the need to post that.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    I don't necessarily like the guy, but I can't blame him. The guy has thousands of people eating out of the palm of his hand, not many people will get to experience something like that in their lives.

    Re: Tebow's flair for the dramatic

    If you hate the guy why bring more attention to what he does?

    That's what I'm trying to say. I don't hate him, and I largely didn't understand why so many people complained about him and/or the media coverage of him. But then I saw this story, where he apparently made a big show of ripping off his sling and saying "I'll be fine." I've heard people say that one of the remarkable things about the guy is that, despite all of the attention, he's selfless and humble. But why would you do something like that unless you wanted to make a big deal out of yourself?

    The reason I'm bringing it up is because I'm trying to say it may be changing my opinion.

    That, and because I'm killing time waiting for the championship games to start.
