Tim Tebow Says Pro-Life Super Bowl Commercial Cost Him Endorsement Deals

 

Former University of Florida star quarterback Tim Tebow says his decision to record a pro-life Super Bowl commercial for Focus on the Family cost him endorsement deals. In a new speech, Tebow didn’t name and names but said the pro-life ad had a negative impact on potential endorsements.

As the featured speaker at a sold-out event at Lipscomb University, Tebow talked about his future.

According to the Palm Beach Post, he said a few companies told him before the Super Bowl that they could not him represent their products if he went ahead with the pro-life commercial.

“But Tebow said losing sponsors was a small price to pay for the ability to spread his message about family and faith,” the newspaper indicated.

Tebow hasn’t been hurt by his decision to share the national stage with his mother Pam Tebow, who famously refused to have an abortion when she was a missionary in the Philippines and contracted dysentery during pregnancy.

He has inked deals with Nike and EA Sports, where he will be featured on the cover of their 2011 NCAA Football video game.
