Former NFL’r David Tyree: I’d Trade My Super Bowl Win To Stop Gay Marriage

David Tyree strikes a hard(ly sensical) bargain.

Former NFL star and Super Bowl 2007 champion David Tyree’s legacy was all set to be that of an accomplished sports hero. But now it’s looking like he will be remembered as that guy who tried to bribe God with a Super Bowl ring to put an end to gay marriage in America.

Oh dear.

“The catch was a gift, it’s not like I’d try to do it. I couldn’t do it again so that was a miracle,” he said. “There’s nothing worth more than [maintaining heterosexual marriage] right here for me.”

Asked if he’d give up the Super Bowl to stop gay marriage, Tyree said: “Honestly, I probably would.”

“Nothing means more to me than that my God would be honored,” he said. “Being the fact that I firmly believe that God created and ordained marriage between a man and a woman, I believe that that’s something that should be fought for at all costs.”

“So I’ll lay down everything I am to preserve the honor and integrity of the God that I serve.”

He said last week gay marriage would lead to anarchy. Today, he said, the morality of a country is defined by its law.

“So once you allow something like same-sex marriage, it opens up the door for a continual softening to the backbone of our society, which will eventually, for generations to come, open up the door for who knows, polygamy, and all other” things.

To be fair, the reporter set him up with the question, but still… Had I been offered the opportunity to barter my sparkly worldy possessions for heavenly political intervention, I would politely end the interview rather than risk letting the world know I was a straight up crazy person, which Tyree has done here.

Bonus: Check out an equally riveting video of Tyree backtracking on earlier claims that gay marriage would lead to “anarchy.” Tyree has been confronted several times now about the fact that he does not seem to understand what the word anarchy even means.

Fumble!

  • Another douche…

    He should marry Tracy Morgan… 😛

  • Abandoning the Constitution of our great nation IS what is softening the backbone of our society!

  • David Tyree is a perfect example of the ignorance that plagues America. Tyree, you’re a douchebag!

  • I think someone should let him know that marriage has only been a religious ceremony for… what, the last 200 years?  If that?

    Yea, no.  Good try, but fail.

  • OMG you can get married to your cousin i 10 times the states you can get married to man in!! back in the day they said blacks couldn’t marry whites… 

  • Jarrett L. Clark

    Too many blows to the head… But sometimes a helmet can’t even protect you from being innately stupid.

  • Oh God created and ordained marriage…funny, I thought it was the Church that did that.  Silly me.

  • What I would like to know is this … For these bigots who attest they follow the bible.  How does this affect YOU personally?  And give an example that does not start with “God said this …”  “The bible says this …”  And so on.  HOW DOES THIS PERSONALLY AFFECT YOU?  Non of these so-called religious groups or bible-fearers can seem to answer this simple question without using ‘God said” or “the bible says.”  Now my thought is this … Go ahead and follow your bible.  Follow your clergy interprets it.  LIVE YOUR LIFE THE WAY YOU WANT TO OR CHOOSE TO AND LET OTHERS LIVE THEIR LIFE THEY WAY THEY WANT TO.  Or perhaps is it a jealousy issue, where they feel they’re following the bible or their clergy and miserable and seeing OTHERS living a different lifestyle and HAPPY.  Hmm HAPPY what a concept.

    Laws change all the time. Like the right to vote has he forgot how that originally was, that changed and it did not start anarchy.

    There was a time, NOT SO LONG AGO, that you David Tyree would not be ALLOWED to have your comments/opinions published or for that matter heard by anyone other than yourself  …

    I agree with him that the moral fiber of a country is its laws–and US laws promote and have promoted discrimination, prejudice, and inequality. That’s not a moral fiber to be proud of.

  • David is an attractive man and probably having homosexual feelings.  Often the case when one is vocally opposed to us.  Wonder how long before he comes out!
