    I a watching NE play and I am so sad that Tim is not playing. Football isn’t the same. I feel like we caught a glimpse of a great football player and no matter how me hope, we may never see him playing again. The media has done its job of beating the fans down and depressing us. Watch out if we do get a chance to play him again.

      steftebowfan: Until Tebow gives up his dream, won’t be doing anything else but believing/praying. Besides, comebacks are the norm…ANYTHING IS STILL POSSIBLE W/GOD ON YOUR SIDE!!!

      Stef—There are two things to remember about the Media. They pay the Bills on Ratings. And they are the ultimate Statizens. They get piles of numbers on people every day and they live and breath them.

      The second the Media Marketing Analysts begin to think Tim’s Fans will turn away from their Networks in bulk, there’ll be a sea change.

      While some Tebow Fans are convinced he gets a bum rap from the Media, some Anti-Tebowists think he gets handled with kid gloves by it. The reality is probably somewhere in between.

      But the Media wants Tebow Playing. If they had their way, every Game would have Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow. If they could find a way to get them playing every position, that’d be even better. 🙂

        It seems pretty hard to move the needle on NFL ratings. Coming into the year, I heard predictions of boffo ratings. Not sure if those have materialized. But if only 1 out of 5 Tebow fans lightens their viewing, will anyone notice? And will they notice before Tim is 35 years old?

      • Brandi says:

        Two years ago, the NFL created a Special Committee to deal with sagging Ratings. It began as only TINY blips. But it was enough to tell the folks at 280 Park what I’ve been saying here for some time. NFL Fandom has softened and they’ve hit the ceiling domestically. Even a couple of the Owners have stated publicly that the NFL has saturated the US Market and an inevitable slide backwards is coming.

        Yeah, they’ll notice. They would certainly notice a fifth of Tebow Fans who are currently active NFL Fans tuning out. That’s a BIG number.

        Fans may not think long-term and Sports Media…especially NFL Media…has a difficult time talking long-term because Fans change the channel. But the League has to. It meant almost nothing to the average NFL Fan when Goodell came out and let the World know the tiny snapshot of their BizPlan of reaching $25 Billion a Year in revenue by 2022. It mean even less to NFL Fans when that date was pushed back to 2027 earlier this year. But that 5 year Push-Out works out to between $40 and 50 Billion in Revenue lost from the NFL’s Business Plan. That’s essentially taking the combined Valuations of every NFL Franchise and wiping them off the books.

        They notice. The Banks notice. The Sponsors notice. The Networks notice. EVERYBODY notices except apparently most NFL Fans and a large portion of NFL Media…at least if you go by their Content. BUT, the caveat, every Major Sports Media…plus Forbes and the Wall Street Journal has had a serious assessment on the possibility (probability or likelihood, depending on who’s making the assessments) of the NFL not even existing in ten years. YET, NFL Fans just change the channel.

        In No other Major Pro League would that happen. NONE. Fans would be either up in arms or totally stunned. But one thing they would NOT be is disinterested.

        The NFL has the largest percentage of SOFT Fans of any Pro League. It shows up most easily in how many NFL Stadiums struggle to sell out for 8 Games a year. There is very little “Event” anymore in going to an NFL Game. NFL Fans will tune in if it’s free and doesn’t take up too much time. When it gets to be any more than that, the softness of the support becomes pretty stark. And now there’s the first indications that even under those two circumstances, the League has pushed it as far as it can.

          There’s also a bona fide cultural divide that is captured in the “red and blue” state concept. People at the levers of power, including the media and the NFL, have their biases, which I submit fall towards the blue. That can lead them against rational self-interest, IMO. Look at MSNBC. Their leftist slant is not an optimal business plan, but they appear to love it.

          Years ago the RIAA squashed Napster, prefering the feeling of control to the feeling of greater financial profit. I’d love to think the NFL is searching to maximize profits, but . . .

    I do not think New England is going anywhere since they lost the Gronk.

    • ck says:

      Andrea: Yes, agree b/c I happened to watch the very end and The Pats did not look good…three attempts (inc., inc., intercepted) and couldn’t get the last 5 yds.!!!
      This was stated elsewhere at MHR (lower level humor/apologize):
      “Bronco’s are #1 in the #2 business…that’s one big pile of _ _ _ _!”

      • Sage says:

        Another 2 weeks is probably enough for BB to improvise a solution and get deep into the playoffs. He’s not perfect, but head and shoulders above most of the rest of the nfl HC meatheads.

        Does it all come down to QB? Apparently Shanahan has won only a single playoff games since Elway, though I did think the teams with Plummer were exiting and strong. Never understood giving up on Plummer, after 3 consecutive years of ascending. Dude was a very good athlete, plain and simple. Much more like Tebow than most. More of a gamer, I guess. Less of a chalk board guy.

    Buzzy: Appreciate your efforts on behalf of all of us Tebow Fans…very glad you are standing in the gap too!!!:D

    The NFL has saturated the market and is a mature product BUT it ain’t going anywhere. Is the game going through a metamorphosis? Yes. However to think for a moment the NFL is riding off into the sunset is poppycock. Across the pond indeed!

    Before you get too carried away with the NFL failure (that is what it would have to be) scenario first off, you might want to take that up with the NFL owners then a few of the SEC good old boys. Then a chat with the BIG 10 and the PAC 12 powers that be, then the networks, then the consumer products industry et al and wash it down with a cold Bud on Super Bowl Sunday before you say to your grand kids I remember when…

    I guess It did not work this time.

    • ck says:

      Buzzy: Well, we will see down the road…B-E-L-I-E-V-E!
      Sounds trite, but having faith actually works for a lot of situations I’ve found to be very true…so don’t do the unthinkable and “GIVE UP!”

      I am watching the “Frontline NFL League of Denial” and is it ever an eye opener…talking about concussions and players named Webster, Troy Aiken, and Young, etc. We are talking serious brain damage so now you know why the NFL has a realistic brain drain, literally!!!

    • Bigfan says:

      Buzzy all is good… No sharks insight :0 Keep hope alive!!

      and Merry Christmas!
