Tim Tebow calls football “just a silly game”


Tim Tebow has been one athlete open about his Christianity and by doing so has received his share of backlash. His comments on Friday at Liberty University is sure to raise more talk.

“In the end, football is just a silly game. Greatness comes from serving,” Tebow reportedly told the crowd.

Tebow will continue his stay at the university this weekend to participate in the Wildfire Weekend for Men¬†conference, taking place at the university’s Vines Center and featuring Willie Robertson from the A&E reality show “Duck Dynasty,” as well as former major league baseball pitcher John Smoltz, among others.

The men’s only conference is described on its official website as a “weekend where men, life, God, and the great outdoors come together.”

Currently Tebow is still on the New York Jets roster but the team is actively trying to trade him.
