Tim Tebow is a polarizing athlete who evokes intense emotions one way or the other. You can’t be neutral when it comes to him – you have to pick a side. Even folks who pretend to be neutral about him more often than not passive-aggressively hate on him at one point or another.
A few days ago, ESPN talking head Merril Hoge came out and needlessly trolled Tebow’s enormous fanbase by calling their guy “phony.” Naturally, that go over well. Shortly after Hoge said what he said, Josh Duhamel (that one random dude who is married to Fergie) came out and tweeted this:
@merrilhoge hey merril. Josh Duhamel here. Wondering why you're such a jealous bitch about Tebow? He's 10x the player you were.

And that right there is the conversation about Tebow in a nutshell. One clown comes out with a totally unreasonable and stupid critique about a player who isn’t very good; another clown overreacts like Tebow is his son or something.
