There are a lot of things more stupid than what Ricky Jean-Francois allegedly said about Tim Tebow. One of these is the writer who misquoted him, and another is the person who actually believes Jean-Francois would try to cause more harm than to get a clean hit on Tebow. We need to understand here that the media (especially here in Orlando) is a stick that tries to stir up things (e.g., the Anthony stuff), and why not? There is no punishment for the media telling lies and making outlandish statements, so there is "free license" to be a carrier of rabid statements. The media everywhere needs to stop this obvious corraling of the public and realize that most of their viewers do have some intelligence (although I'm not convinced about the Anthony demonstraters that they have much, if any).

Fowler needs to own up to what Jean-Francois really said and try to not take it at "face value". He baited Jean-Francois into saying that, and then used the words to say a different intent. Some media people have become masters at that.
