Once it got to that point, though, the brand (which in this case, is him personally) has to be protected. Simple as that.
So you're saying we shouldn't be blaming Tebow, but the lunatic supporters he has?
Here's my beef with Tebow. He should just come out and deny that his "trademark" isn't specific only to him. He shouldn't care if his fans do whatever, they aren't his responsibility. He should only go about things as he sees fit. If people want to make fun of him "Tebowing", then that's their call.
