You can make that case. Maybe discontinuing posting until some real facts come about would be a better option for you.

I'd like to go on the record as saying that my interest in Broncos football has taken a nosedive after seeing this. John Elway used to be the reason I watched the Broncos...now he's the reason I won't watch them. It's not just the fact that we are likely to lose Tebow (who was the heart and sould of our team last season), but also we can't close the deal on Manning either. Complete ineptitude. And here's a pre-emptive **** you to everyone who throws shlt may way...it's my choice to take my ball and go home. So long, b****es.

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock.

So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking.

So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga.

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Not all directed at you, but directed at those who are upset we are not signing everyone and their mother...

You wanted to see this team build through the draft and that is exactly what EFX are doing.

You can't throw a b**** fit when we are not very active in Free Agency.

we arent throwing a b**** fit that they didnt sign everyone. they didnt sign ANYONE, on a team full of holes and a bunch of moderately priced, higher level guys like eric winston, broderick bunkley etc. they didnt sign anyone, nor even seem to attempt to.

This. Cousins can ball.

I will say it again if this happens Tim's a b****.

GET OVER IT TEBOW YOUR A TOP 25-30 QB IN THE NFL RIGHT NOW AND PEYTON IS A HOF QB

move on take it as motivation and work harder. Why want out when your loved in the city of Denver, your teammates respect you, you can't be butthurt by what the front office does they have the job of trying to make the team better. They need back up plans in case the Tebow experiment fizzles out in a pro style offense. OH YEAH AND GOOD LUCK STARTING FOR SOME OTHER TEAM.

It will be the same situation every where he goes.

Hypocrisy. On one hand, you are condemning the front office for not communicating well enough with Tebow. On the other, you are saying Cutler handled his situation well by refusing to field calls from an organization that employs him and paid him millions of dollars.

Unless they show me they're serious about improving the team, I'll prolly have to pass on calling up Direct TV and hassling them for discounts on Sunday Ticket. We haven't filled one need!

I like Tebow, but his nation of fans is why I will not miss him when he's gone. They are irrational, unpleasant, and a negative weight on whatever franchise is carrying them.
Look for the best in people. Your common sense and experience tells you that the internet reveals the extremes in every case, whether the issue is politics, religion, or something else. Unless you've had a large number of unpleasant encounters in person, I don't see any reason to think the worst of Tebow's fans as a whole.

The one thing they have uniting them is that something about Tebow inspires them and brings them joy. And based on everything Tebow exudes, that's not a bad thing.

I know a lot of Tebow fans. And the vast, vast majority of them have been very realistic about him for a long time. We didn't expect him to be picked in the first round. We didn't expect him to get a chance right away. And we tend to expect him to be constantly micro-examined.

Dude. I'd be happy as **** if they took what they were already going to pay the "Free Agent" Manning and committed it to just filling our holes with middle of the road players. Problem with free agency is you also LOSE people through it, and you can't replace everyone with 7 ****ing draft picks. Even assuming all your draft picks are ready to suit up and play on day 1.

Yeah, I bet you would love people you trusted not believing in you. Get real.
Of course they will try to get somebody else to take the job, that is their job. Peyton is their only veteran target watch, sure they will bring in a rookie. They can't hand the job to Timmy and not have a back up plan. That would be wreckless. Tebow is going to be in a pro style offense this year we don't even know if he can execute in it yet.

Why would you field calls from people trying to assasinate your character by spreading **** in the paper to win the PR war? I'm glad he didn't talk to them. **** them.
