    Mr Elway Bring Tim Back If he does good you can say that was your Plan If he does Bad You Can Say I knew he couldnt play QB Thats why we sent him to the Jets WIN WIN either way.

      I second that; hopefully Elway isn’t mad at Tebow anymore for spoiling his Andrew Luck strategy.

      2011 was a magical year for Tebow as it propelled him to a National Icon. If only Elway would have embraced it rather than feel threatened, Denver would have been America’s Team and the NFL would have been a stronger league for it.

      Elway had to see Tim’s progress last year and how he handled himself while with the Eagles. A true professional. Elway won’t have to be concerned about loyalties or anything like that (aka Osweiler). Give the keys to Tim, show him respect and he will move mountains.

      If anyone has the gravitas to follow a retiring Super Bowl winning QB, it is Tim Tebow.

      Buzzy: Nice try, but don’t think Elrot is that smart b/c his too big “EGO” is in the way…hmmmmm

  2. Sage says:

    I don’t know any more. In the past I’ve always wanted Tim to play in the NFL and show what he can do. But the NFL is getting lower and lower. It’s scraping the bottom now, trying to interfere with Georgia legislation that would grant religious exemptions to prevent clergy from being punished for refusing to conduct gay marriages. What business does the NFL have influencing the laws of a sovereign state, much less laws regarding religious freedom?

    Goodell’s NFL is bad as can be. It’s getting easier and easier to stay away. I’m usually 5 to 15 years ahead of trend, so the NFL isn’t going to lose its audience overnight, though I wish it would.

      Things may move more quickly than you think. 1st, the NBA had the highest ratings in its history just before the bottom fell out for being known as the Thug League. 2nd, Congress has the NFL in its gunsights over concussions/CTE and kids. Now over half of all parents say they don’t want their kids playing football. For years those in football at lower levels have shaken their heads at the NFL. Now their very survival will be dependent on shaking their fists at it.

      4th, this past year the Sports Media has begun turning on the NFL. This coming year the Networks will face questions as to why they let the NFL off the hook so many times. ESPN will have a hard time saying it didn’t air the documentary on the NFL’s effort to cover up the long-term risks of head trauma done by its own Reporters but having to be aired on PBS because the NFL pressured the “Worldwide Leader in Sports.” Disney is having enough problems already because of ESPN. It cannot afford to be seen as helping the NFL put kids lives at risk. It now will go after the NFL with every “we were duped” investigative report on the NFL it can come up with.

      This is the year the entire Sports and Media World turns on the NFL to save their own hides. It’ll be fast and it’ll be nasty.

      Sage: The NCAA is getting into the PC crap as well –

      http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/the-buzz/article66842737.html

      Brandi: The NBA is a prime example of a fall from grace. That league has undergone a transformation that has turned the league from a fairly respectable league to a purely niche league. A check on the NBA’s Nielsen ratings confirm a steady decline over the last 20 years or so. By the looks of it, the NFL may be headed in that direction too.

      People may not directly say it, but they instinctively know that something’s wrong and spending their money elsewhere.

      • Brandi says:

        The NFL is serious trouble. It already had the combined problems of the least number of Games, no International interest and a rapidly changing Media landscape making their Ratings significantly less valuable. In short, after these TV contracts expire they don’t have a way to pay the bills. But it’s going to have trouble lasting even that long.

        The NFL will take the heat for Sports injuries. Nobody in Football outside of the NFL can afford to do anything besides throwing the NFL under the bus and blaming it for the current climate of fear and anger that has move than half of all Parents and as much as 2/3rds in some recent surveys saying they don’t want their kids Playing. The Media will take a bit hit for this too as its response has been…well the NFL will be OK. They’ll still find Players. Um, guys, the supposed Sports Media just told everyone else in Football “That’s your problem”, assuring everyone from Youth to College will lay it entirely on the NFL. They have absolutely no other viable choice for survival.

        But this is the interesting thing. Barely a quarter of all people say Head Trauma is the NFL’s biggest issue. The majority comes down to the NFL’s culture issues and paying billionaires any kind of subsidies, tax breaks, anti-trust protection or anything else. And 9 out of 10 think the NFL should be forced to spend part of their profits in building Communities. Basically people don’t believe the NFL represents their values and they’re sick and tired of paying for them.

        The NFL is done. All that’s happening now is we’re watching the unraveling.

      Sage: Agreed and well said btw.

    THE NFL Comes out in Favor of Persecution of True Biblical Christian’s Religious Freedoms –> In favor of the “Trendy Perversions” Override of our Constitutional Religious Freedoms IN Bill of Rights – JUST TO MAXIMIZE – THEIR ELITIST NFL OWNERS $$ PROFITS and CONTINUE THE:
    OBAMANATIONAL RUIN OF AMERICA AGENDA, TO OUR USA’S MORAL DEMISE!

    THUS THE NFL CONTINUES THEIR ELITIST LOW LIFE IMMERSION INTO
    NEW DEPTHS OF SUPPORT FOR IMMORALITY FOR BIG $$ !!

    • ck says:

      David O.: They are doomed imo if they continue w/this!

      • Brandi says:

        5 or 4 or 3 or 2 or even 1 year ago I would have agreed with you. In fact I attracted every kind of NFL kook attacking me for being outspoken on this very thing. That the NFL Owners had to change their attitudes or the league was doomed. In fact I disagreed with folks like Colin Cowherd and Grantland (Bill Simmons) who said it was already on a 10 year countdown clock to no longer existing. (This was a few years ago.) I felt if the NFL changed its attitude and got in line with Mainstream American, values, character, etc., it could build a sustainable future.

        But I don’t feel that way any more. I think it missed its chance to turn things around and is done no matter what it does now.

  4. David says:

    There’s a reporter on the Broncos’ website disparaging Tebow in a question and answer format. He even says that in 2012, Sanchez was a better QB than Tebow in NY. Sanchez scored 13 TDs with 26 turnovers in 14.5 games.

  5. Andrea says:

    Rodger Goodell is a fool. People are sick of this PC garbage.

    I haven’t watched a football game since Tebow was ” waterboarded” by the NY Jets.

    Have’nt missed a thing – been traveling on Sundays and have no interest in turning the TV on.

  6. Andrea says:

    I agree with CK’s assessment of John Elway.

    As far as Disney is concerned IMHO they can go to Hades. In the past 30 years Disney has lead the charge on all the social and cultural rot that has happened in the great USA. I will be very happy to hear Disney has gone bankrupt.

    Poor Walt Disney – he would be ashamed to see what his great family fun business has become.

    • ck says:

      Couldn’t agree more Andrea about Disney too…what started out w/good intentions has become an amoral abyss just like “ELROT”!!!:(

  7. Larry says:

    Tim’s going to be the new co-host of a show on Fox called “Home Free”:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdxV0B76uVA

    If all of the episodes of this show haven’t already been filmed, I think we can assume Tim won’t be playing in the CFL this year.

  8. Andrea says:

    Regarding Sage’s post about the NFL getting involved with the State of Georgia with the possible denial of a Super Bowl in the State of Georgia if they pass a religious freedom bill – I have heard the 3 other states in consideration of hosting the Super Bowl have already passed a religious freedom bill. If this is true Goodell is dumber than I thought he was.

  9. ck says:

    Happy Easter to all!!

  10. Danny says:

    In keeping with the PC theme, it was revealed that in 2014 the Rams and the NFL struck a deal where the Rams wouldn’t be featured in the E$PN series “Hard Knocks” if they drafted Michael Sam.

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/03/23/michael-sam-rams-hard-knocks/

    So, is this how business gets done in the NFL?

  11. Brandi says:

    It’s desperate times for the NFL. The New York Times revelation that the NFL Study at the center of the league’s proclaiming the dangers from Concussions were overblown and the precautions after a Concussion actually did more harm than good and it was better to get right back into the Game was based on flawed date set off a firestorm.

    The NFL’s rebuttal started something even worse for them. The head of the biggest CTE Research, the one the NFL said it was funding then balked, called Roger Goodell a serial liar and the Commissioner and NFL found noone defending them. Nothing but agreement from every major Sports and News Outlet. Nobody missed that most of the NFL’s response dealt not with the faultiness of the Study but instead with trying to explain away its eerie relationships with everyone from shady Lobbyists to Tobacco Lawyers. I’ve said here for years those relationships are the NFL’s Achilles Heel which now is cutting its legs completely out from under any remaining defenders of the league, Owners and Commissioner.

    The Times knew exactly what it was doing and how to do it to inflict maximum damage to the NFL as it’s been here before. When Football was nearly outlawed just over 100 years ago. There’s no Teddy Roosevelt to ride in and save the NFL though. This is just getting started as the vultures are circling. This came from documents obtained by (read leaked to) the NY Times. Expect more of this now as people too close to the NFL’s dirty tricks and cover-ups for comfort start scurrying from the sinking ship.

    • KingSolomon says:

      I want to believe it is tough times for the NFL, but they are making more money than ever; are expanding to foreign lands; and will keep doing what they do for how ever long the USA exists. Thugs are always welcome; Tebow is not. Sad and disgusting but true.

      • Brandi says:

        Don’t fall into the trap of thinking the money the NFL is making now means anything long-term. When those big contracts were signed the Network Executives said they didn’t want to and wouldn’t again. The Thursday Night Games showed they meant it.

        The expansion also means nothing. There are exactly two Countries the NFL could expand into. Mexico and Brazil and Brazil would require the NFL spending lots of money which they won’t. It can play in Germany but the only Market there is US Military. That’s why when NFL Europe collapsed and was almost entirely Teams in Germany it was called little more than a USO Show. It hasn’t gotten any better since.

        After all these years in London the NFL still can’t generate any significant interest. The Jaguars Game on Yahoo! barely averaged 2 million Viewers worldwide and it sure wasn’t coming from UK Viewers.

        The NFL has precisely two things going for it. The current TV Contracts which will never be matched again once they expire and the 90 years of Legacy older Fans still remember. Baby Boomers are still the NFL’s strongest group but they’re hanging onto memories and trying their best to ignore what today’s NFL has become.

        Nah, the NFL is a paper tiger and barely that.

        • Brandi says:

          Oh and just in case anyone wants to blame the poor reception of the Yahoo! Game on not being on regular TV. In 2015, Advertising Revenues in the UK for Digital Media exceeded all other forms combined. (50.1% to 49.9% and growing) In the UK they do everything including TV online. The US is heading that way fast, BTW and Digital Media Ad Revenues will exceed TV Ad Revenues in 2017.

          On regular TV, NFL Games in the UK don’t crack the top 30 for the week on their own Network. There’s ZERO interest there.

    Additional news of NFL appeasing LGBT groups:

    http://www.breitbart.com/sports/2016/03/24/nfl-forged-deal-with-rams-to-draft-michael-sam-to-placate-lgbt-groups/

    It’s a little more detail than my original link.

    The SJW’s are also out in the NBA too, threatening to move the 2017 NBA all star game due to some bill out in NC.

    America needs to worry less about political correctness and more about spiritual correctness.
