Tim Tebow might be angering more than a NFL few fans when the football world hears the latest remarks of the New York Jets player. While he is still on the rooster of the team, it appears that off the field he is looking at his bigger mission in life. The convocation speech at Liberty University on Friday has students lined up for blocks to get a seat and the event wasn't open to the public, but the speech was tweeted by individuals who attended the event.
The famous football star has garnered exposure on and off the field, but what he said to the students attending the affair might be what he will be answering to when it comes to his job. Apparently he doesn't take football too seriously. In fact, he called the sport a “silly game” and have led some to believe he isn't happy with his job.
"In the end, football is just a silly game. Greatness comes from serving," said Tim Tebow that the end of the convocation speech. The remarks might have been for the students he was looking to inspire, but the words have also gotten the fans to question how serious the star is about his time on field.
Liberty University is one of the largest evangelical colleges in the world and having Tebow on the stage definitely sparked plenty of interest on what he said to the students. This isn’t the first time Tim Tebow has been questioned over his decisions in participating in speaking gigs as he is a sought after speaker. Earlier this month the NFL player pulled out of a speaking gig at First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas after he was questioned about the event.
