    Super Bowl Ad Uproar – ANOTHER Example | Fox News Video – Tim Tebow ->”Black Balled from NFL” – Because HE REFUSED TO BE A SECRET SERVICE CHRISTIAN !

    He had exceeded The $$ NFL/MEDIA “Controller – Elitists” CHRISTIAN VISIBILITY LIMITS – AND “THEY – COULD NOT STAND IT”

    Tebow’s pro life Super Bowl ad drove the mainstream media and the mainstream sports media up a freakin’ wall.

    The mainstream media viewed the Super Bowl ad as an unforgivable sin and Tebow needed to be destroyed to teach other Christians to keep their mouths shut about their Christian religion.

    Which is the reason why Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning keeps their mouths shut.

    Serious question…What’s really up?

    Is the issue the NFL? Tim’s “Blacklisting”? Or the Media?

    I’ve been watching so many sides of the “Tebow Phenomenon” since back when the NEA made Tim center stage of separation of church & state when in reality it was all about the power of the Teacher’s Unions and Politics-101 in 21st Century America.

    The NFL threatened to sue churches and has spent years jockeying over how to command them to do as it says while trying to backtrack from looking like total tyrants. But that’s not my issue. The NFL acted stupidly. No sane Business starts a fight it cannot possibly do anything but lose and lose massively.

    Except it won. And it won because there was no outrage beyond some flurries.

    I kinda wonder, if the Media had threatened to sue churches, would they win too? Would they face a mostly pliable church community?

    No joke. Is this all pure politics and the media is the actual “enemy”? The NFL is the not so innocent bystander?

    Just wondering.

        The demographics of Tim’s Fans is something almost unheard of. There’s a reason why he has been up there in the rare air with Oprah and Adele. Because his Fans have no age grouping. They have no racial component. They are among every Religion and people who identify both no religion and atheists. They are Sports Fans, Football Fans and those who have no interest in any Sport. They are Americans and people who generally have no use for Americans. They are Christians and people who generally have no use for Christians.

        That is why I use the term ‘The Tebow Phenomenon’. The ONLY place you can find any group of serious Anti-Tebowists is in the US and as hard as I look…and I’ve looked really hard and long…there is pretty much only one commonality. That is hard core politically-oriented who are basically sworn enemies of “TeaBaggers” and who have convinced themselves only people of a specific Political-Religious affinity could possibly be Tebow Fans.

        So basically, other than a very small cultish group of zealots, Tim’s Fandom eclipses pretty much every demographic you can find anywhere in the World. I don’t know if anyone else has found anything like this before. But breaking down these kinds of things all over the World is alot of what I do and i can’t find anything like it outside of a very few Popular Entertainers. And only the rarest of those.

        • Sage says:

          The anti Tebow people are so unpleasant. Characterized by closed minds and stolid spirit. Your likening of Sparano to the North Koreans was spot on.

          Used to like a Broncos site called itsalloverfatman, but the principal, Doug, is in that Sparano humbug category. The Broncos used to be the antithesis of cautious and unimaginative, but no longer. Give them 10 regular season wins with perhaps high margin of victory and they’ll sllep soundly the rest of the winter.

          • brandi says:

            Tim Tebow had to have a 60 year old College Offense because he couldn’t handle a Pro Offense. That is, until those saying that realized 1) The new line of Option Offenses are just that, new. And 2) Other Teams started adopting these Offenses. So then it was switched to…yeah, but those other QBs can throw.

            It makes absolutely no difference whatsoever to those who have tried to characterize Tim Tebow as a QB negatively when they show without any question they haven’t got clue one about anything they’re talking about, INCLUDING even the most fundamental knowledge of the Game of Football…and I’m including those getting paid lots of money to be NFL “analysts”… Each and every time their excuses are shown to be wrong, they move on to the next ones.

            Now they have their “perfect” excuse. “32 GMs say no. Therefore”, pick the completion of that sentence. It’s the ultimate circular. Yes the last time he was a Starting QB he Won Games. BUT, he isn’t Playing, therefore, He Sucks, because NFL GMs can’t possibly be wrong.

            That is until they want them fired for being incompetent for some reason other than Tim Tebow.

    • David Oliver says:

      Brandi – I think they are run by Similar Elitist Power Brokers,
      and against Tebow and Christians they became willing Co-Conspirators.

      From the Bible:

      Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

      Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

      • brandi says:

        David, while I think the issues have more to do with deeply divisive motivations, possibly so engrained they’ve become natural knee-jerk as opposed to religion of any stripe, I very much share your issue with elitism. It’s a cancer that first eats at the individual and eventually eats at an entire People.

  4. andrea says:

    My vote will go to the mainstream media as the main enemy. Case in point Michael Sam. The mainstream media are all in a tizzy because Michael Sam is not even on a practice squad for any NFL team. This shows the NFL is homophobic the media says. I don’t know about you Brandi but I have been following football for 50 years and before the gay Michael Sam came onto the scene I NEVER heard any sports reporter or sports analyst say anything about a teams practice squad. Why should they? There are 53 men on a teams roster and most football fans don’t even know half the names of the 53 players so the only reason we are suddenly bombarded with news of the practice teams is because the media is teed off that Sam ( who is not even good enough to be on a practice squad)is not on one.

    Another example is Ray Rice. The media crucified him for hitting his girlfriend ( for the record I found the striking is this woman to be abhorrent). The media demanded harsh punishment against Rice as his actions could have injured/killed the woman. Endless hours of commentary from ESPN hosts, government officials and social experts about the Rice case. The media proudly proclaimed “if a athlete is dumb enough to do something illegal on tape – then they are going to report on it”.
    Yet when Michael Phelps commits a crime (drunk driving) and there is video footage of him driving drunk endangering people in two cars and a tractor trailer – there is absolutely no coverage of it in the sports world even though Phelps could have injured/ killed someone just like Ray Rice.

    The fact is if Tebow was a atheist there would be no media circus around him and he would have a shot to play in the NFL. The media does not like him as he is a outspoken Christian and the media will do anything to keep him out of football and they will do everything in their power to keep Michael Sam in the NFL as they are in agreement with Sam’s values.

    • ck says:

      Andrea: Good points, all! Like you, believe that the media hyped it all along by creating “THE CIRCUS” and the other side CAPITALIZED ON IT, AS ALWAYS!!!

    • brandi says:

      Thanks Andrea. That was very helpful. Cause I have to say, for the life of me I haven’t been able to understand why so many die-hard Christians have gotten so fired up for so long about Tim’s NFL Treatment while having very little reaction to the NFL actually bullying Churches directly and threatening to sue them over gatherings they hold among their own Congregations in their own Churches.

      I’m not a Church person; yet I see that as one of the most dangerous precedents to be set in the history of this Country. It’s a door opened that threatens the very heart of the principle of not just Religious Freedom but even the Freedom for any Groups to congregate.

      It still makes me scratch my head. Oh well. 🙂

      • andrea says:

        To tell you the truth Brandi, I never heard of the NFL’s treatment of church gatherings until you reported it on this site.

        You are correct – Christians should be just as upset about the NFL handling of church gatherings as they are as upset about the way Tebow has been treated.

        I would think the reason why Christians are not as upset about the church gathering ban is because hardly any one knows about it. Like I said you are the first person I have heard this information from and I have been going to church for over 50 years.

        Unfortunately for Tebow, the hard -core politically oriented sworn enemies are the Hollywood crowd and the mainstream media. Election after election the mainstream media and the Hollywood crowd vote 95% for the same party.

        That is why there is a “group think” mentality among the media and your sports experts that say Tebow can’t play QB and is lousy.

        Yet – in one season Tebow helps win 7 games out of only 11 and every year there is at least a dozen teams that do not win 7 games out of a 16 game season.

        I for one can not explain why season ticket holders on these football teams ( my brother for example pays 90.00 a game for a Ravens ticket)
        do not rise up and demand Tebow be given at least a shot in training camp because these teams haven’t approached a 500 season (8 W 8 L) in over a decade.

        • ck says:

          Andrea: Couldn’t agree more only when is enough, ENOUGH! Look how the non-denial denial is attempting to spin it on the extreme zealots w/capital Z! Ostrich land and refusal to call what it obviously is and it certainly is NOT peaceful!!!:(

        • brandi says:

          Andrea, do you remember when the Jets Fans were shouting “Tebow save us” and they got totally ripped apart for it? Those Fans were in PSL Seats they paid $60,000 for and another $3000 a year for their Season Tickets.

          And they were ridiculed like they were some idiots who rolled in off the street just to make trouble.

          As for the church issue, I’ll post a couple links here. I might even write an article on it. I’m not at all surprised you hadn’t heard. It started with a threat to sue a church in Indiana and ended with the NFL sending out annual letters and notices on what churches can and can’t do on Super Bowl Sunday. What churches can and cannot do in their own church on a sunday?? It is arrogance on steroids.

    • Sage says:

      Leftwing, atheist media are indeed the root of the world’s problems. But the root of this problem itself is that themedia trade off the public’s perception that the media are just honest brokers. This is the legacy of the 20th century, where centralized networks with high production values brainwashed the public into trusting – the Walter Cronkite phenomenon.

      Undoing the WC phenomenon is a long, hard task.

    We ALL know it is obviously due to “UNFAIR BIAS” and that NEEDS to change as it is in our constitution regarding FREEDOM; I.E., RELIGION/SPEECH ETC.

    What is Buzzy thinking…can only imagine. 🙂

    This weather is getting to be freezing even in Florida…BRRRRR! We are going to have a wind chill factor in the 20’s! Time to shut down the Siberian Blast/Express impo!

    • tawk2 says:

      Amen to that ck, I live in western Maryland and our wind chill this morning was -18, real temp 0. I am so tired of this cold and now we are forecastered to pick up 4 to 7 inches of snow, then a coating of ice on top!

      Sorry I have not been on much, looking at more sorgery on the same foot, cadaver bone is not healing among other things, I don’t want anymore surgery, last time six and a half hours and 20 procedures.

      Hope everyone is well, try to stay warm!

      • ck says:

        Tawk2: You are not alone in that thinking and glad we are going to be in the 70’s again in FL. Didn’t know MD. was that “COLD” and guess the good news is that you are not in MA.!
        Will continue to keep you in my prayers and hope you don’t have to go through w/all of that which is none too pleasant. (You are a trooper that is for sure!)
        Do you ever watch Joel Osteen? Highly recommend and he is usually on The Family Channel on Sundays at around 12:00 midnight.
        Hope everything gets better and you receive a positive outcome/victory!:)
        God bless you/yours and stay warm as well!

    I think we often confuse messed up kid issues as Anti-Christianity in this Country. If this was India, it would be Anti-Hindu. If it was Egypt, it would be Anti-Muslim. It’s Mommy and Daddy and the crazy hypocritical church lady and the wild-eyed preacher and anyone who felt religiously oppressive and in this Country, that’s primarily Christian.

    It becomes a political persuasion. But at it’s core, it’s really Freud who’s messing with us. 🙂

  9. brandi says:

    OK Andrea and anyone else interested, I did an article on the NFL threats to sue churches, with some links included, as well as the Tebow “Blacklisting”. Hope Y’all like it. 🙂

  10. ck says:

    Anita Bryant was not w/NFL and look what happened due to a VERY SMALL “VOCAL MINORITY” that threatened to sue/boycott; Unfortunately, we ALL know money talks!!

    • brandi says:

      There’s a way to make the point that noone is going to boss churches around. But it would take alot of work.

      It would take arranging something else during the Super Bowl, preferably something to appear on a competing Network.

      Make it one big line in the sand; not just against the NFL, but anyone else who decides now that the door is open kick it down altogether. It would be one big competing “event”…a big movie or something like that probably would work best. But a major concert would work also. If it was a concert it would have to be multiple groups.

      If enough churches around the Country got involved, it would be a HUGE statement. Considering only a little over 100 million people watch the Super Bowl, it’s possible to put something together that could really shake things up.

      It’s very doable. But it requires churches to really understand what kind of risk there is in setting the precedent Corporate Profits trump the sanctity of Church Gatherings. This has all been legalese up to this point. There’s yet to be a stand taken about the very principle and the extremely risky precedence.

      • ck says:

        Brandi: Can u post the links here and then send to major HQ of the church
        affiliates; i.e., Southern Baptist Convention, etc. This might just spark them to do SOMETHING INSTEAD OF N-O-T-H-I-N-G! What do u think? Probably beating a dead horse b/c churches are too silent on a lot of controversial issues impo!

        • ck says:

          Ooops…disregard the links as I now see you did infact already post…:)

        • brandi says:

          I think the real question, CK, is will they care? It’s not like the Organizations themselves aren’t aware. They have to be. Some of their churches have already gotten threatening letters and others have gotten “Guideline” letters.

          There’s something wrong going on in Church Hierarchies. They wring their hands, like Disney. Then wash their hands in other situations. What they seem to have real trouble with is mustering positive efforts. I read the articles everyday, some from some pretty influential places within various church circles, saying Boycott the NFL.

          I don’t know how effective they are. Because the NFL isn’t nearly as big as it sometimes appears. The most watched games have just something like mid-20 millions in viewers. That’s 6 or 7% of the population. Even Super Bowl numbers. How much is “Event”, hanging out with friends, wanting to see the commercials, halftime show. When it comes right down to it, how many are watching because they really are interested in “The Big Game”? The Playoffs get maybe mid-30 millions. No Pro League is even remotely set up so well to have massive audiences than the NFL. Despite all the hype, the big issue is how few actually are interested. When you think people need free wi-fi and big scoreboards to be interested enough for a grand total of 600,000 people in cities of 6 million to show up once during a year, that isn’t the underpinning of popularity it’s made out to be.

          So when calls for “Boycotts” go out, could we really tell if they’re actually doing much?

          BUT, if you somehow got all of those people looking somewhere else all at once, THEN you could get a better feel for how out of touch the league has become from the Fans and potential Fans…the people themselves.

          But do the churches really care? Because it doesn’t seem like there’s alot of demonstrable interest in the NFL itself. Even to mount a decent protest. But if maybe they understood the risks go far, far, far beyond the NFL< maybe.

            Saw a bumper sticker today that was worth repeating…”Liberty once lost, is lost forever” – John Adams

  11. The Major says:

    “One of my biggest pet peeves is how this country has turned into a “left” a “right” and everyone else. IMO, because of this, the only “winners” have been those who use everyone fighting each other as cover to take everything, including liberty, from everyone.

    It’s disgusting.”

    Wow. We’re actually in agreement on something.
