Tim Tebow Booed and Antonio Cromartie Pursued? What is Wrong With This Picture?

So this past Sunday night, Tim Tebow put on a NY Yankees cap and attended a game in Yankee Stadium. When the giant screen showed him sitting in the stands, the crowd booed. One of the reporters at ESPN commented that it was too early for Tebow to earn the respect of NY fans.

Earn their respect–that is interesting. Apparently respect is only based on winning and has nothing to do with the man’s charity work and disarming humility.

Case in point, another NY Jet, cornerback, Antonio Cromartie, apparently has that respect and questioned the move to bring Tebow to the NY Jets. Antonio, you might want to befriend the man instead of questioning his presence. You could learn a few lessons off the field.

If you do not know who Antonio Cromartie is, he is now married and has had two children with his current wife. However, Cromartie has eight other children by seven other women in six different states. That makes 10 children from eight women and he is only 27 years old!

Cromartie better stay in the NFL for a very long time as his child support payments total more than a quarter of a million dollars a year according to NBC Sports.

So while the NY Yankee fans boo clean living Tebow, a TV production company pursued the Cromartie entourage for a reality TV show. Thankfully, “Cro” says “No,” but his baby mamas have an interest in doing it and think it would be great to do this type of show.

What is wrong with this picture?

So much.

Apparently it bothers people that Tebow stands for something more than fast living, bling purchases and entitlement. The “tolerance” for a man who loves God and wants to help people is so lacking they boo his very presence.

Instead, we encourage a media diet of dysfunctional relationships, loose living and indulgence. This is what we want to show our kids?  More “Jersey Shore” living? To what end?

To desensitize us to incredible dysfunction?

To make us all feel better that “we are not like these people?”

To erode our values and take the stigma out of immoral living?

To be entertained by broken people who are in desperate need of therapy? I am not entertained by such people. I want them to get help and stop acting out.

Instead of booing Tebow, why don’t we offer Cromartie a really good marital therapist. With his history, he will need help in this area.

Maybe we should be celebrating those who try to do the right thing and be happy we still have a few solid role models.
