I agree, this commercial was so offensive it shouldn't be on TV. /s
Also, FotF is an officially designated hate group? Well, I officially designate the Michigan Squirrels club a hate group. There, it's a hate group, I proclaimed it officially. SPLC has a vested political interest in defining as hate groups those organizations which it is idealogically opposed to.The SPLC has itself been criticized for being too liberal with the use of the "hate group" label.

The viewpoint may be controversial, but the actual commercial content was no where near controversial in its actual execution. I'm not sure if you actually watched it or not, but I'm not sure the word "abortion" was even used.

Put yourself in his shoes. The dude workes his butt off since Pop Waarner league, because he wants to be a professional QB. It's hard to achieve the pinacle of a profession, only to be told "I know you're passionate about X, but we want you to do Y because you're better at it". It's somewhat like an engineer at a firm being told "We want you to go into business management because you have great sales skills and you'll be a great asset to the company and make us tons of cash", when the engineer just wants to diddle with his automobile parts. People love to bag on Tebow for being a QB when he would be better as a TE, but when people talk about Denard being a QB it's all "CHASE UR DREAMS I LOVE YOU", instead of "switch to RB where you are better suited".

How did Tebow milk it? I honestly don't recall him ever having an attitude of "look how pious I am", but rather that that was something the media placed on him.
Also, I'm not sure how that Super Bowl commercial was milking attention. The commercial was on a topic that he feels strongly about; it wasn't about "BUY THE NEW TIM TEBOW BRAND CLEATS FOR ENHANCED PERFORMANCE EXTRA LONG JUMPS FREE SCHOLARSHIP TO COLLEGE", but rather a very well-spoken (and not controversial) right-to-life appeal. Athletes normally appear in commercials for charitable causes all the time; that doesn't make them media whores.

I think it's safe to say most people hate Tim Tebow not because of the media coverage but because it's what all the cool people are doing.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Time to jump on the hate||
Time to jump on the hate wagon for a dude that never sought media attention and leads (by all accounts) a pretty decent life. Oh well, it's in style, DOES ANYONE ELSE HATE TIM TEBOW AND THINK HE'S THE WORST QUARTERBACK ALL TIME?

Let me ask you this, which is more likely to happen during the 3rd quarter:
"Hey BRAH, can you move for me and my three friends, *hic* we just pre-gamed a little too long #YOLO and you're in our seats."
"Hey man, can you move for me and my three friends, we just spent a little too long doing our EECS 280 project this morning and got to the stadium late and you're in our seats."
In my experience, it would be the first.

Why would you ever compare the MGoBoard to RCMB? Until there are threads about "How best to please my wife (in BED LOL)", "Who else hates Maxwell because he suckz?", and "Reasons why scUM, O$$$U, and PENETRATION (see what I did there) State are LOZERZ", please do not complain about the MGoBoard. This is by far (outside of perhaps r/cfb) one of the most rational football boards out there.

It's not about the guilt of the University administrators, but supporting your teammates. Regardless, it wasn't "the university" that didn't do what was right; it was a select few administrators who encouraged criminal acts to occur, not the thousands of faculty, staff, teammates, students, and alumni of Penn State. Also, not everyone had the talent of a Silas Redd, where they can pick to transfer to any top-notch institution; why not work through one more year with your brothers on the field, trying to salvage something rather than taking the easy way out?

This might be terrible, but I'm sort of glad. He's still going to have a pro career and get big $$$, but I hated the way he ditched his teammates, program, and university just to make a big career move. Maybe I'm too much of a dreamer, but I think there's something to be said for making a decision based on your loyalty and what's right, rather than what's going to make you the most cash and notoriety.

I never post in these threads, because I'm not a big drinker, but hey I just had my UM MD/PhD interview a few weeks ago, I've got a few acceptances for next year already, I should celebrate right?

Unbelievably repentant and responsible statement; it's refreshing to not see him blame whatever he did on his friends, bad influences in his life, teammates, or any other scapegoat that sometimes happens when athletes (or people in general) get in trouble.

There are few institutions that can match the comprehensive rankings of UM, when considering the medical, law, business, engineering, and liberal arts departments.

Thankfully, no one in the real world (for me, medical school admissions) agrees with that, as I'm constantly complimented on the rigor of my undergrad education...there's simply no way that UM isn't one of the top 10 educational institutions in the United States.
