Krieger: Elway on fringe of Tebow tirade
Quote:
Twitter has become known for many things during its short life, but civility is not one of them. So when John Elway​ chose the massively popular microblogging service as his method of direct communication with Broncos fans, he was taking a calculated risk.

The Broncos' transparency offensive was working pretty well too, until Elway got crosswise with Tebowmania. Then it got ugly pretty fast.

"You know, I've actually stopped reading it, which is a good thing," Elway said with a laugh during his weekly hit on KOA radio Wednesday.

Here's a sampling of Twitter messages sent his way after he said earlier this week he didn't know if Tim Tebow​ was the Broncos' quarterback of the future:

"@johnelway i hope pat fires
http://www.denverpost.com/krieger/ci_19409161

It's a good read. It basically says the open communication thing is a double-edged sword. It also highlights how stupid the Bronco Florida fans are being. The comments under the article pretty much say it all.

Article Discussion: Krieger: Elway on fringe of Tebow tirade

Postby theking1935 on Today, 6:11 am
Elway is a horse faced as s and clearly has no clue how to run the football operations. Even if he thinks this way about Tebow, DONT SAY IT PUBLICALLY ON SOME STUPID RADIO SHOW. He is dumb as a stump. PLEASE TRADE TEBOW JOHN TO MIAMI OR JACKSONVILLE SO OUR TEAMS CAN CRUSH DENVER FOR YEARS.

Elway and Fox: Do us all a favor and shut your pie holes. After the season ends, go ahead and start running your mouths again, satisfying your obsessions for a pure pocket passing pansy. Go ahead and cut all the quarterbacks on the roster and draft your next object of ridicule. You better select a big winner. Otherwise, prepare to be run out of Denver for good.
Agamemon, Alpha Sierra and Macgruder all joined shortly after Tebow was drafted. I suspect one or both wrote the above. They're a bunch of idiots who worship everything Tebow does and blame everything he doesn't on everyone but him. I want Tebow to succeed, he's an easy player to root for, but when I read comments like these, I almost hope we trade him so we don't have to put up with these idiots.

I read "tirade" as "trade" and was wondering how Elway could not know the trade deadline had passed.

There would be a firestorm. It's like he's started his own religion. It's amazing the laughably horrible things that are being said, things I would assume even many Tebow supporters would find over the top, and look at this, half the posts are basically endorsing the behavior (Jhiz is on ignore. I can only assume he said something about me supporting McDaniels.)

This is long past the point of being old. Tebow as of this season is our starter. As starter, he is 4-1. We are in the division race. Everything else is just a distraction. As for the comments towards Elway. He will always be one of the faces of the team. He led us to 5 superbowls, won two of them. I will never criticize Elway the player. Elway the GM is open for criticism, even though calling him an ass or horse faced (really? Thats original...) is beyond juvenille and immensely disrespectful.

I agree 100%. I'm almost to the point where if I see a new poster joined I just place them on ignore just to save me a headache. I want Denver to win and to do that Tebow needs to win, just like I wanted Plummer, Griese, Cutler, and Orton to win. I find it funny that they called me a hater cause I cheered for Orton to win. Hell I didn't even want him here!!!!

Most of these Tebow fans don't care about Denver. They don't care about the teams history. They just care about how well Tebow looks. I don't blame DENVER BRONCOS fans for growing tired of this **** storm.

Oh so you are one of those posters that go into threads and say who cares. Those guys kill me. "Oh look a new thread I wonder what this is about?" "Blah I don't like the topic so I will go upload my who cares gif to show them how much I don't care about the topic!"

I agree. And I don't believe Elway or the front office is above reproach. Like I've said, the negative feedback Elway is getting is his own doing and the front office's for having this "full transparency" policy. You do that and people are going to come at you when you they don't like what you say.

That's not my point. I don't think the Tebow fanatics shouldn't have a right to say their idiotic feelings. I don't even take issue with them ripping on Elway. I am, however, going to judge them based on their comments. Clearly they don't give a crap about Denver. The request he be traded to "Miami or Jacksonville" shows they don't care about the Broncos beyond Tebow playing well so people will praise him and they have more material for their hero wetdreams.

I support Tebow and I look forward to him improving. But he needs to improve. He'd be the first to tell anyone that.

So what do you do in the interim.... You have started to post anti Florida, anti Tebow and Anti Bronco fan posts.

Then you talk about idiots... Really? You have been posting here for 7+ years and 35,000+ posts and NOW you are worried about idiots? Come on Chris, this place has been loaded with idiots and trolls since day 1, and Now you are going to blame your poor behavior on that I call bull shiat.

I started coming here in 2005 and its like night and day from back then. There are so many more horrible posters now. And (shocker!) a lot of them joined right after Tebow was drafted!

You must have missed the arguments over players like Griese, Plummer, and Lelie...

Well then the few months before I joined was when the change took place. This place is exactly the same as it has always been.

I wanted Orton benched because after 2 years, it was painful to watch his complete lack of athletic ability. I thought it was a slap in the face to the fans to trot him out there again this year.

I now feel the same way about Tebow. Am I jumping the gun on judging him? Possible but doubtful. Is Tebow winning? NO. Is the TEAM winning. Yes. Imagine what they would be doing with a talented QB.

As far as Elway goes, he is the boss. If he doesn't feel like kissing Tebows a$$ he doesn't have to... He has whats called **** you money, and he doesn't care what Tebow Nation thinks. He was a better player than Tebow ever will be, and as of right now has more NFL experience, front office or otherwise, than anyone on this site.

I really don't think there's anything wrong with wishing Elway was handling the situation better. He began his tenure by saying his strength is he "knows what he doesn't know" but he clearly thinks he is an expert evaluator (being a HOF QB from an NFL that no longer exists does not mean you are automatically a great evaluator). This of course goes back to my opinion that he has made up his mind to not back Tebow. As for the idiots, I just ignore them.

At the end of the day none of this matters because if Tim keeps winning Elway will be incapable of dusting him.

This. And this is WAY worse than Lelie/Plummer/Cutler (I wasn't here for Griese, though I've heard that was particularly terrible.)

None of those players had the following Tebow has and with an allegiance as fierce as his. And honestly probably none after will, at least not for the Broncos. Tebow is one of, if not the, greatest College players ever. You don't see those kinds come through a Franchise more than once in a blue moon.
