Tebow on Football Career: People ‘Were Telling Me Where to Shove My Bible’


Tim Tebow said he had some of the “most horrific things” directed his way during his football career. Friday while discussing Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and current Heisman favorite Baker Mayfield’s crotch grab last weekend while playing the Kansas Jayhawks, the 2007 Heisman winner said on ESPN’s “First Take” that people used his religion as part of the smack talk. Despite that, Tebow warned players like Mayfield that you “can’t dip down to their level.” Partial transcript as follows: In my time of playing high school, college and pro I had people say the most horrific things to me: say exactly what they are going to do to my sisters and mom, they’re telling me where to shove my Bible, they’re spitting in my face, they’re giving cheap shots, all these different things to me, and so I know what it’s like to have people take cheap shots and say things to you, but you also got to know at that moment that you’re winning, that you’re under their skin, so you can’t dip down to their level because you are already dominating them. They’re saying that because they’re already intimidated, they’re disappointed, they’re upset because they want something that you have. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

ESPN’s Kellerman: NFL Owners Should ‘Ignore’ Trump


Friday on ESPN’s “First Take,” co-host Max Kellerman reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweet that says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had “lost control” of the NFL because of the National Anthem protests, saying NFL owners should just “ignore” the president when he tries to push for them to cut protesters. Kellerman suggested Trump tweets about the NFL’s dwindling National Anthem protests to distract from “the real world.” “For the press, it’s actually good for the sports media even to be talking about this because it’s content that he’s giving us to talk about, but it’s bad for the NFL owners’ business for this to be going on,” Kellerman explained. “And they have the option of ignoring him. The press has less of that option. So, I would suggest the owners ignore him.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

WaPo Reporter Janell Ross Gave Strategy Briefing at Secret Dem Gathering


Washington Post reporter Janelle Ross sat on a panel at a secret gathering of Democrats where she offered strategic advice, according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon. Left-wing billionaire George Soros was also in attendance. Ross presents herself and is presented by the Post as an objective journalist. She primarily covers politics and race, and much of her focus is on the Trump administration. Nevertheless, Ross’s Twitter feed is that of a left-wing activist, and back in 2015, with no evidence, Ross smeared then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush in such a sleazy way, even MSNBC felt the need to push back. According to the Beacon, the Washington Post journalist “gave a presentation at a secretive California gathering where Democratic politicians, liberal activists, and their biggest donors plotted the future of the progressive movement[.]” The Post claims to have known nothing about their reporter’s attendance, and told the Beacon that Ross has been “reminded” about the Post’s policy when it comes to attending events that “could be perceived as partisan.” One wonders if the Post reminded Ross that “democracy dies in [the] darkness” of secret gatherings where “journalists” secretly attend to secretly strategize about secret stuff. The secret gathering was organized
