Tebow’s greatness leads to NFL rigging the draft?

17 03 2010

And it never ends …

Just when you thought reality was finally going to knock Tim Tebow out of the Pantheon down to Earth with the rest of us schmoes, the NFL kicks us in the gut with the news that Tebow has been invited to attend the draft.

The NFL has invited only those players with a guaranteed slot in the first round of the draft, and after the Aaron Rodgers and Brady Quinn sagas played out on live television, they restricted the invitations to reduce the risk of a player being embarrassed on draft day.

But then Tim Tebow was born – or was it immaculately conceived – and all the rules change.

By inviting Tebow to the draft site, they plan on putting him in the gallery with cameras on him from the minute Roger Goodell makes his first trip to the microphone. The NFL undoubtedly is putting pressure on NFL teams to “be the team to draft the man, the myth, the legend, the god, Tim Tebow.”

I was OK with wrestling being rigged. I understand horse racing and boxing have their “moments.” But this is just too far. Now the NFL gets to ram Tebow down our throats?!?!

I feel like I’m back at college at a party with Roger Goodell and he’s got a beer-bong and can of Tim Tebow, while the NFLPA is ramming the tube down my throat. Standby, here comes the Tebow, whether you like it or not!!

Tim Tebow is nowhere near a first round pick in this years draft. Even he admits he has a lot of room for improvement and things to work on. The first round is not the place to draft “projects.” That’s the 3rd-6th rounds. That’s what they invented Compensatory Picks for. The first two rounds are dedicated to building and improving teams, not drinking the Tebow energy drink.

Now we can all wait for the Guarana and Tebow crashes after be forced to stomach this crap.

If Tebow is drafted in the first round, you can bet Vince McMahon is somewhere on the NFL board of directors.

First Jimmy Clausen it expected to be a top 10 pick, now this? Is football that desperate?

I can’t take it anymore.
