    Would you call this a statement?

    Just curious...

    Was anyone else talking about race before his post? Yes or no?

    Yes. But again, I did NOT say that anyone who dislikes that he’s getting Tebow’s number is racist. I said many of our racist fans won’t like it. Surely you understand the difference. The former is a sweeping generalization. The latter is not.

    What does that have to do with anything? Yes, I introduced race into the thread. And?

    Interesting that you would claim to know how ‘many’ will feel.

    There's also people, who I don't know, believe that Tebow is the greatest college football player of all time, and we're lucky he was a Gator, so we should be selective on who gets his number.

    But you're right, I'm sure most of the people who oppose this are just racist Florida fans. :rolleyes:

    Why'd you bring up race, then, if it's just a small number?

    Why'd you turn this into a racial issue when you're the only one making it out to be one?

    I brought it up because I thought it was pertinent to the conversation. The thread title asks if his number change would cause a problem. And I think it will with some (or many).

    Because a tiny number of Gator fans oppose this for racial reasons, you thought this was pertinent to the conversation?

    Not, you know, the elephant in the room, and pretty rational reason, that Tebow is probably the GOAT of college football.

    I don’t think it’s tiny number. And I do think its pertinent to the question posed in the title.

    I'm sure this move pleases all of the Christian-hating Gator fans out there. And I think that's more than a tiny number as evidenced by this thread.

    Cool. For the record I’ve never been a big fan of retiring jersey numbers or making a big deal out of jersey numbers in general. But it’s clearly very important to some fans.

    Yes it is.

    If it weren't important to you at all, what are you doing here posting about it? Why are you wasting your time?

    I spend plenty of time on here posting about all sorts of shit. Some I care about and some I don’t. I’m only responding at this point because you keep engaging me. I’m gonna leave now. Bye.

    Why would you waste your time posting about stuff you don't care about?

    The thread title didn't say anything about race.

    The thread subject had to do with his nickname being AR-15 not his race.....yet you decided to bring race into the conversation, even though the title didn't mention race, the subject wasn't about race and no other poster before you mentions race.....so who exactly has a problem with people and their race?

    It's obvious why he is leaving the conversation.
