Now, let’s take a look at Tebow.

For starters, he’s willing to make a position change in order to play in the NFL. He was unwilling to do so in 2012, and because of that, he found himself out of the league. Tebow has decided that playing professional football is more important than playing quarterback, and he’s getting a chance to make a team because of what he prioritizes.

It’s just not an apples to apples comparison, no matter what the race-baiting Left wants you to believe. The fact that Tebow was offered a contract to play tight end for the Jaguars is in no way a reflection on Kaepernick. If Kaepernick comes out and says that he’s willing to play tight end in the NFL, and then doesn’t get a tryout with a coach who happens to be a close friend, then the argument can be made.

Additionally, Tebow doesn’t bring nearly the media attention that Kaepernick would bring. What has Tebow done that would cause an owner to pause? He’s not afraid to tell the world that he’s a Christian? That’s hardly the same as calling all police officers “pigs” and hating America.

So, yes. Kaepernick is partly out of the NFL because of his views on social justice, and it certainly plays a role in his inability to get an invite to a training camp. But that’s how things work in the real world. When your actions impact business, there are consequences.

I clicked on this to read an article about Tim Tebow. I did not want to read an article about the despicable other. This bait and switch article just deepened my resolve to never watch another pro sports play again.
