I'll go one further. The only reason Tebow does not start is because NFL teams would rather fail in a traditional way than try something new and risk criticism. Tebow shows how intellectually bankrupt most bad teams are (I'm not gonna blame a good team for failing to take a shot on something different, but some place like Buffalo or Jacksonville?)


I agree with your premise generally, but I'm not sure that I agree with it as applied to Tim Tebow. If Chip Kelly picks him up, then I'll concede.

Yeah I know it's played out on here but...Lebron James is better at the game of basketball than Kobe or MJ.

By the time I'm 55 or so(I'm 23) football will be so different we'll have to almost force ourselves to still enjoy it.

The NFL and the NBA should do away with salary caps.

Not speaking on that, but I'm proud to say that most of my thoughts on Lebron from 3-4 years ago were mocked on here by many but are now generally accepted by just about everyone.

I can throw 1 unpopular opinion on him right now though, if he stopped playing this very moment, he's the 2nd best player to ever play the game.

While I don't want to say "Tebow is the awesome!" and say he would absolutely be a good player, my general point is this: it couldn't hurt to give him a shot if you're already a terrible team. If it works, you have zigged while the league zagged. If it doesn't, you had one more crappy year in a long line of crappy years. At least this one was fun and interesting.

The NBA should do away with max contracts, is that unpopular?


If the NBA was truly interested in parity, this would get you there pretty much immediately, or as soon as current deals run out of course.

Chip Kelly won't pick him up because he's not a good decision maker.

He had a nice little run, which was predominantly his defense in Denver saving his arse for last second heroics, but he's just not a quality NFL QB.

He works hard, he's a good guy, but I don't think he's a victim of teams not willing to give him a "chance."

The only major pro sports women should compete in are golf and tennis.

While I agree with all the main points, I just think if a team evaluates him or anyone different or not, if their evaluation is that he is not very good, I don't think they should give him a shot and possibly waste a year picking a "different" kind of player for the sake of being different.

But obviously we don't need the Tebow debate in this thread as this is a solid thread, and i do 100% agree with the premis you're tossing out.

Parity doesn't produce enough ratings, so sadly this will never happen.
