    For praying ????? When????

    Don't get me wrong I'm a big fans of athletes thanking God for success on the field. But I'm also for everyone religious rights being treated equally.

    NFL recognized the mistake:

    Though I found this quote interesting:

    But a player who does a back flip in the end zone and lands on the ground could be penalized.
    I guess if you can fly you don't get a penalty??

    The utter nonsense that the supposed creator of the universe (in any name) would give a rat's behind about a score in a game.....

    athletes generally are giving thanks for success, not asking for help in the outcome.

    But did he receive a penalty or fine for it?

    Was the rule on going to the ground in place when Tebow was playing?

    I disagree with the religious exemption. If you want to go to the sideline and hit your knees...have a blast. Frankly...I don't think Allah helped him score that touchdown. Tebow on the other hand...I'm not sure he didn't require divine intervention every time he stepped on the field.

    If you think Tebow's piuty(sp?) wasn't a source of contraversy, you've been asleep.
