ESPN Attacks Tim Tebow as ‘Failure’ on First Day of Spring Training
-By Warner Todd Huston
As former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow makes his astonishing debut as a Major League Baseball player with the opening of the New York Mets’ spring training at First Data Field in Port St. Lucie, Florida, ESPN immediately attacked him as a “failure” and a “pretend baseball player” before he made his first play.
For liberal ESPN, sportswriter David Fleming slammed Tim Tebow as engaging in a “relentless pursuit of failure” for daring to try for a second professional sports career after leaving the NFL.
Without question, Tebow had a short NFL career as a quarterback, but during that career, he was the constant butt of jokes and vitriol by the liberal sports media because he is a steadfast Christian who did not shy from expressing his beliefs on the field, in interviews, or with as his off-field philanthropy.
Clearly, Tebow’s religion still sticks in ESPN reporter Fleming’s craw as the player takes a shot at rekindling his college and high school pursuit of baseball. Whatever Fleming’s problem, he is certainly filled with hate and venom for Tebow as a person.
The hate Fleming exhibits for Tebow is thick. Indeed, he calls Tebow a name in nearly every paragraph of his extremely long hit piece. In the article Fleming calls Tebow a “grifter,” says the player is only engaging in his “latest feat of athletic failure,” is an “embarrassment,” is “idiotic,” has “profited from the art of failure,” and his “brand” is “failure incorporated.” And on and on it goes.
