    Well good job to you and the others. An idiot makes a stupid end zone political statement. And now its all about Tebow.

    Well Good job, there have been more posts from YOU about Tebow than me. I made two posts, how many did you make about Tebow? Got a problem? Look in the mirror.

    re: NFL flagged KC Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah for praying in the end zone[W:80]

    Look, this isn't that difficult to understand and it's not some giant bit of religious persecution.

    Abdullah's method of beginning to pray was significantly unlike what most Ref's have seen in terms of a player kneeling to do a quick prayer after a TD and looked more like a common celebration of someone going to the ground.

    I can think of the two examples of this with my own team. I believe DeAngelo Hall has a TD celebratoin (that I find obnoxious) where he'll slide onto his knees and raise his hands up. I seem to recall this being flagged at least once before with the notion he was "going to the ground to celebrate".

    Meanwhile, Robert Griffin will regularly kneel and cross himself real quick after throwing a TD pass and that's never been flagged.

    In Abdullah's case, I'm guessing that the Ref's didn't realize at first it was a religious demonstration and probalby simply forgot that it's a technical exemption to the rule. The kneeling thing has been allowed for so long, and is so common, I'm sure it's possible a ref just forgot WHY that's allowed and simply had gotten used to not calling it as a penalty.

    Abdullah shouldn't have been flagged, but I don't think this is some grevious issue. A ref made a mistake. This happens in every game in the NFL every single week. This time it just happens to correspond to a player praying. It doesn't make it any worse than any other blown call as I don't think there's any evidence or notion that it was due to some kind of "favoritism" to one religion or some other such thing.

    I only stressed that Tebow is no where near as bad as people say. So you look in the mirror. People hate Tebow for his outward religious actions.
    Being a Christian as he is, was attacked at Florida and was pushed even further in the NFL. But in true hypocritical fashion, praying to Mecca in the end zone is not only OK but seen as a wonderful thing. Welcome to muslim America. Or thug America and if you say different, you get called racist or some brand of "phobe".
    Clearly the NFL is appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    I think it's a little closer to the truth to say the Broncos took Tebow to the playoffs.

    No, he sucked plain and simple. Not because he was a Christian. Now, take your OWN advice and stop talking about Tebow. You have mentioned him more than me. I love how YOU complain about my two posts being about Tebow and you have posted MORE than myself about him. Talk about hypocritical.

    Clearly you don't watch football or understand the game. But like I said, great job of deflecting from a obvious "in your face" prayer move. To more character assassination of Tim Tebow.

    It should just be a rule to celebrate like Ochocinco

    I watch it plenty. Well enough to know that Dilfer didn't take the Ravens to the Superbowl because he was so great.

    If Tebow was so great, wouldn't he be starting for the Jets? They clearly weren't happy with Sanchez, but for some reason Tebow stayed on the sidelines. Why did the Patriots release him? Wouldn't a guy who takes teams to the playoffs make a good backup to Brady?

    I would rather talk about Tebow than some wannabe muslim illiterate wearing pads.
    Was he facing Mecca? Was it at the ascribed time? Where was his rug? Otherwise he did it to piss people off. Period.
