It seems like everyone has something to say about Tim Tebow (including us), whether it comes to his work ethic, his pious nature, his throwing motion, his jersey sales, his clean-livin' persona, his underwear or his potential as an actor. And sometimes, frankly, it's hard to know which side to be on in the debate. Tebow lovers are so smarmy and obnoxious, while Tebow haters are so angry and bitter. Frankly, we don't want to join either one of those groups.

Gator fans (God love 'em) vs. John Oliver (British comedian). Merril Hoge (sportscaster) vs. LeBron (similarly hated NBA player).

Hulk Hogan (uh, wrestler?) vs. the billboard guys.

Loving Tebow means being blind to his problems (and his personal beliefs). Hating Tebow means hating on the Broncos, which you'd never do. Unless, of course, you are part of the Suck for Luck group of people who want the Broncos to perform so poorly this season that they finish with the worst record and therefore the first pick in the NFL draft -- a pick that will land stud Standford quarterback Andrew Luck.

But rooting against the Broncos is also a problem. After all, Raiders fans root against the Broncos, as well. So does that put you on the same side as Oakland?

It's a confusing situation for all Broncos fans. Good luck figuring it out.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
