    My 2 cents worth , His fame killed him in football where he was flat out black balled , and his fame also got him a foot in the door of MLB where the average guy would not have. But the folks who say he was " terrible , awful , sucked " etc etc are not giving the guy his due , YES , by all means he was unorthodox and sometimes threw the ball all over the place , But I watched every second of every game that year in Denver when they went 8-8 after a terrible start , then beat the Steelers in the playoffs , the following year Horse Teeth ( Elway) traded him away and the hapless Jets misused him and that was the end of his career . I think Tebow was 8-5 ( ?) after taking over the Bronc's that year ? And won a playoff game , So while no Dan Fouts when placed in the right system he could be a winning NFL QB .

    Your confusing.

    If you were just talking about social media then your statement goes for 100% of every person in the public spotlight. 100%.

    Mr. Tebow gets promoted to AA to start the season despite going 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts during spring ball. It won't be long before he makes it to the big club.

    And it would appear that more often than not, that pitching is getting past him.

    He's wherever he is to sell tickets / generate interest. This will be true even if he shows up at Citi Field.

    Yep. He's an attraction, who's done enough on the baseball field to keep people interested. His fans don't seem to care that he's not very good, and keep paying to watch him play.

    Good to hear. It will be interesting to see if he manages to improve in his second full year.

    Well, it would be hard to do much worse than a .226/.309/.656 slash line and 126 strikeouts in 486 plate appearances and keep a job.
