Adam and Jeremy say: Jesus Is Just Alright With Football Players, but not the Media.

Is the media intentionally editing Jesus Christ out of Sports Stars Story's'? This article takes a look at the medias coverage of out spoken Christian athletes like Superbowl winning Coach Tony Dungy and recent Heisman winner Tim Tebow. Personally we find encouragement in sports stars who give credit to God for the very existence let alone their fantastic successes and so we enjoy hearing what they have to say about God.


  1. Interesting point, but the article doesn't really tackle the issue either. I thought hearing Dungy durning his team's Super Bowl win and, more recently, Tebow during his Heisman speech, praise the Lord with no mincing of words.

  2. What struck me as odd was towards the bottom of the article this statement:

    "I've also seen plenty of athletes who say one thing and do another, and it's hard for me to be anything but skeptical," she said. "Maybe that is why so many sportswriters shy away from writing about religion. Because the moment we do, it comes back to haunt us when that athlete is discovered to be less than a man (or woman) of God."

    Aren't they missing the point? I might be a Christian, but that doesn't mean I won't make mistakes and sin. That won't change my "status" I guess of being a man of God, will it?

    Mainstream media.... just gotta love them, don't you?
