Someone Checks Tim Tebow Blood Pressure … the ex-Florida star has just made NUCLEAR to discard the new California law and allow college athletes to do so to be paid NCAA sport ruined forever !!!
"I feel I have some credibility and knowledge about it, because when I was at the University of Florida, I think my jersey was one of the best-selling jerseys in the world." Said Tim.
"It was like Kobe, LeBron, and then I was right behind them, I did not make a buck with it, and I did not want to, because I knew what college was about."
There is more … Tebow is FIRED – but first a fast Review of the new CA law.
Called a "Fair Pay to Play Act", it was passed this week by the CA State Senate, allowing college athletes to be paid to use their name, figure and image without being punished.
The California Governor Gavin Newsom now has 30 days to decide if it will be included in the law – but the NCAA is fighting like hell to make it close.
Enter Tebow … who sides with the NCAA and goes on ESPN's "First Take" to declare war on "FPPA."
Tebow says that college should be more about following your dreams and contributing to an institution than trying to make money.
"I knew I was going to Florida, my dream school where I wanted to go, the passion for it and if I could support my team, sup port my college, support my university, that's what it's about."  "But now we change it from 'we' to 'we' from 'my university' because we're not alumni anymore, which interest me, which means college football and college sports special, until then, 'Okay, it is not about us. It's not about us, it's just about me. & # 39; "
" And yes, I know we live in a selfish culture that is all about us, but we just add it and pile it up. Where does it change, what's so special about college football? We turn it into the NFL, where you have the most money, you go there. "
Tebow added …" That's why people are more passionate about college sports than about the NFL. "
That's why the stadiums in college are bigger than the NFL because it's about your team, about your university, about where my family wanted to go, where my grandfather dreamed of winning Florida a SEC championship and you take that away. "
" And you take that away so young kids can make a dollar, and that's just not the point where I think college football has to go. "
The problem with Tebow's point … obviously … is that it is more important for many players to earn a dollar than to contribute to the legacy of an already rich university.
Tebow – who came from an already financially stable family – went on to earn millions of dollars in the NFL and other aspirations .  A large number of NCAA athletes do not have the financial stability or the chance of happiness that awaits them after college.
