    NFL reporter Colleen Wolfe: Is the door completely closed on football?
    Tim Tebow: Uh, yea.

    There it is.

      The door slammed shut and the NFL is just standing there wondering “What just happened?”

      • David says:

        How appropriate that Tebow would say it to an NFL reporter that is covering a baseball tryout where scouts from 28 of the 30 teams came to watch him play.

    • ck says:

      They don’t deserve someone as outstanding as Tebow is imo! Glad he is “shaking the dust off his feet” where the so-called NFL (i.e., not for long/national felon league) is concerned!

    I thought this link was probably one of the more balanced ones I read today:

    http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-tim-tebow-baseball-20160830-snap-story.html

    Some of my own thoughts and analysis of various bits of information:

    Overall he did very well. He ran anywhere from a 6.65 to 6.8 for the 60 yard dash, which is considered average to above average. In comparison, Derek Jeter and Bryce Harper ran 6.6’s.

    Throwing and fielding was decent. I read about that Tim was struggling in center field, but also read that he was facing right into a midday sun.

    His raw power is what really wowed the scouts. The scouts were buzzing about how strong he is. During batting practice, ball after ball left the park. 430 feet in some estimations.

    He was OK at the plate when the real pitches came in, he started off at 1-5 with Smith and 2-6 with Aardsma. He finished at 8-19, which means to me that Tebow made some adjustments (like any good hitter facing a pitcher for the second time in a game) and finished off with a strong 5-8.

    Afterwards, six or seven teams stayed around and talked to Tim’s agent. In my mind I had that number pegged as teams that would express continued interest in Tim.

    Step 1 completed! Now the journey begins!

      Thanks for the info, Danny. Forget the writer’s name, but a guy on Fox Sports thought maybe the Angels, Dodgers and Brewers were possibilities.

    • Sage says:

      Very nice interview.

    • David says:

      Thanks Sage. Great interview. Tim is still staying positive.

    • ck says:

      Believe and succeed…what a “role model” and what an interview! Answered some tough questions and did not flinch…DEFINITELY TOUGH!
      Who knows maybe taking a break from football might be a good thing and hope he has lots of success going this route too!!!

        Interviews with current MLB Ballplayers late yesterday were almost all extremely positive about Tim Playing Baseball. And one of the most common statements was he can contribute greatly from day one because one of the biggest thing they need in the Minor Leagues is role models in the Clubhouse, with all of those Young Ballplayers around.

        And each and every one said…nobody is a better Clubhouse Influence than Tim Tebow, that even during his time in the NFL he was known as a “Great” Locker Room Guy.

        So maybe NFL wasn’t paying attention but MLB was.

        What the MLB Players are all looking for is an indication that Tim is serious. That he’s ready to endure the grueling work of Minor League ball and doesn’t just assume he’ll be a Star in Major League Baseball from the first day without having to put in the work. If he shows that they’re ready to call him one of them…a Major League BallPlayer. Cause he obviously has the talent, athleticism and raw skills.

        This will be a whole lot different than the NFL which is run entirely on pettiness, jealousy and back stabbing.

        • Sage says:

          That’s interesting to hear. What amuses me is that anyone could ever question Tebow’s dedication about anything. He’s the world’s most eligible bachelor and he’s celibate, for crying out loud.

  3. Bubbaelvis says:

    I hate that he closed the door on football but I do understand. It looked to me like a very successful day. He didn’t have to be the greatest baseball player ever. He just had to show them he had pro level skills and he did. Baseball is good at developing raw talent and they know what to look for. It is just s matter of how much time they feel it will take with Tim being 29. If they have watched him over the years they know he has the work ethic to make the process faster and the mentally to go through the process. He is very coachsble. I don’t see a downside. To be it is low risk, high reward.

  4. Brandi says:

    For those upset Tim is done with the NFL let me leave you with this.

    Major League Baseball has already been all over the Tebow Detractors. A huge part of the NFL problem was not only did they not shut down Media and others who decided Tim brought “Polarization” they encouraged those who blamed it entirely on Tebow Fans.

    MLB has already gone 180 degrees the other way. It’s very clear their position is if there’s polarizing it is entirely the fault of Tebow Detractors NOT Tim’s Fans.

    He’s where he should be. With a league that appreciates him and his Fans. And already appears to have a zero tolerance policy with those who are trying to stir up conflict.

    • David says:

      Those are good points and great news Brandi. We’ve know for years that the NFL coaches and PR execs were dropping the ball when it came to handling the media and fans for an accomplished high profile QB like Tebow. It was painfully obvious that they would rather lose games than hire Tebow because of the media crush and fanbase. Many of them should have been fired for ignoring Tim Tebow, the best QB available. If NFL revenue was divided by win/loss record, Tim would be hired tomorrow.

  5. TheMascotArmy says:

    All great to read. Thanks

  6. TheMascotArmy says:

    You know what I also thought? Tebow’s 29 years old is just like a Dominican 24 year old (because they use fake documents, eg Tejada)

    • David says:

      Lol. Being 29 has its advantages. The teams don’t have to wait for him to develop physically, he’s already at the peak of his strength which is the biggest reason they would sign him. Tim is building a new career and it is off to a great start.
