Rob Parker on Tim Tebow getting a tryout with Jaguars: “I think it’s the ultimate ‘White Privilege.’ This guy has failed in the NFL – he can’t play. I know he played for Urban Meyer in college, I get that, but so have a lot of other people. Where is Chris Leak’s tryout at tight end?? This is typical. The Mets gave him a roster spot when he hadn’t played baseball in a decade. Nobody just gets a roster spot. It ain’t just me, other Mets Minor Leaguers bellyached about it, that he was given special treatment. I have nothing against his religious beliefs, he’s a devout Christian, that’s all great and nice, I have no issues with that, but he’s NO GOOD. Why do people keep giving this guy chances when he doesn’t deserve it?? Josh Gordon got tryouts because he can play. Guys bend over backwards for guys who can play. Tim Tebow couldn’t make a 15-yard pass consistently… Tim Tebow is a FAILURE on the pro level, Tim Tebow is a LOSER.”
Chris Broussard: “STOP IT, this takes away from when there’s REAL racism. STOP IT, this is FOOLISHNESS. There is real ‘White Privilege’ and this isn’t it.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Rob Parker get into a heated exchange with Chris Broussard on The Odd Couple when Rob makes the claim that ‘White Privilege' was the only reason that Tim Tebow is getting a tryout with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tebow is 33 years old, recently retired from Minor League Baseball, and hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since 2012, but won two National Championships with Jags head coach Urban Meyer at Florida, and put together one of the most decorated careers in college football history while in Gainesville.
NFL scouts and GMs wanted the 6'3", 250-pound Tebow to try and play tight end in the NFL, but Tebow refused. Ultimately Tebow went 8-6 as a starting quarterback for the Broncos, including winning a playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on January 8th, 2012.
He finished his QB career with a completion percentage of just 47.9%.
Check out the video above as Parker and Broussard come out strong at opposite ends of the spectrum on this debate.
