Every Jaguars fan and media member is currently discussing the question of whether Tebow should become a Jaguar. It is, quite obviously, the biggest story of today, not just in Jacksonville but in the entire sports landscape. This is a huge decision that would have major consequences for the Jaguars franchise, and people are highly opinionated on the topic.
The editors, too, appear to be too much opinionated, and their coverage of the story reflects that. Frankly, I have been disappointed with Big Cat Country's choice of articles and misleading headlines on Tebow.
There are questions of the legitimacy of the claim that Tebow would sell more tickets. There are questions of Tebow's future prospects as a quarterback. There are questions whether Shad Khan will override his GM Gene Smith to make the move. There are questions of whether the team would accept him in the locker room.
All of these deserve to be debated, and Big Cat should be the place to do it among fans of the Jaguars and beyond.
However, the theme I'm getting from BCC on these issues is belittling and mocking. Over the past two days, BCC has turned from a Jaguars fan website into a Jaguars/anti-Tebow fan site. Just look at the headlines from the last few days on the front page: "Some Jaguars Players Don't Want Tebow," "Tim Tebow Articles Aren't Always About Tim Tebow," and a useless "All You Need to Know About Tim Tebow to Jax" that ends with a punchline "Not Happening. Go Away."
This story is too big for this Fox News-esque biased nonsense. I would like to be able to see real points in favor and opposed, and I'm tired of seeing the editors muck up this important issue with their own opinions.
Yes, I realize this is a blog with an opinion and an edge. But if you believe that your opinion is the correct one and have an argument to back it up, it should be fairly debated in the marketplace of ideas rather than preached from stories that misrepresent the current debate or that rely on a quick one-liner. Otherwise, I'm just wasting my time.
