Tebow vs. Kaepernick

Tebow does this and everybody is going crazy calling him money hungry and pathetic (and called me an idiot for arguing otherwise.)

Kaepernick does it and nobody cares.

I don't get it. Did everybody suddenly realize it's a perfectly legitimate thing to do, or is it just that if you're a good QB you can do whatever you want and if you're not you can't?

For Colin Kaepernick, anything feels possible. He's on the doorstep of Super Bowl glory and even has his own dangerously predictable Internet meme.

Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback has filed to trademark the term "Kaepernicking," per the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The craze, borne out of Kaepernick's tendency to celebrate touchdowns by flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep, has led to a flood of fan-generated Internet photos copying the pose.

The fad -- which we swear sailors and wrestler-types have been doing for generations -- comes on the heels of Griffining, Bradying, Gronking, and the grandaddy of them all: Tebowing. Reports suggest the societally unnerving streak of "Horsemanning" has nothing to do with the Denver Broncos or their quarterback.

A nation asleep at the wheel barrels onward.

Yup. Seems like he's tightened it up significantly though.

Shawn Kemp is doing well. Malone is still delivering mail, IIRC

I laugh at people who say that no one knows because all they're saying is that they don't know and they want to drag everyone down into their non-knowing serfdom.

This is what cracks me up about this place.

Trademarks are not about financial gain. They're about protecting your image...your brand.

Tebow and Co. did it because the entire nation was going ape shit over his antics. He actually had a much better reason to trademark his image than Kaep does, and Tebow never talked about making t-shirts or doing anything to try and profit...it was simply to protect the image.

Kaep doesn't really have anybody "Kaepernicking" but himself, and he's talking about trademarking, making shirts to sell, etc.

Yet Tebow gets slammed and Kaep is just cool..??

As I said in the Tebow thread about all of this, I'm no Tebow fan, but this particular topic shows just how nuts this place can be sometimes.

I don't have a problem with Tebow doing it either to make money. I feel that most people would agree that Kaep probably has A) less sponsors/endorsers currently and is making considerably less money than Tebow.

Sponsors/Endorsements are awesome and I applaud any athlete that makes money off them. They should.

Which one is higher?
Oh I'm not saying we shouldn't draft a QB with a high first round pick. Of course we should. I'm just saying, we can still get a good QB in a late first round or beyond. The fact of the matter is, we don't even do THAT. We just don't draft QBs in the first half of drafts. It's annoying.

If they don't draft a guy high I would imagine I'll slip right back into apathy.

I'll probably find a new team to focus on.

Seattle seems like a nice fit.

If they don't take a QB (and yeah, I have my favorite, but taking whatever QB they think is best I can live with) I'm out.

QB absolutely needs to be the no 1 priority...

I don't know how it couldn't be.

There is no way that Geno/Wilson get just 2 wins next year and look as inept as Cassel has for 3/4 years.
