Former NY Giant David Tyree Comes Out for Inequality as NOM's Latest Spokesbigot: VIDEO


The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released a video today featuring former NY Giant David Tyree speaking out against same-sex marriage.

Says Tyree: “Marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors a relationship with God — it’s very unique in that way...If they pass this gay marriage bill...what I know will happen if this does comes forth is this will be the beginning of our country sliding toward...anarchy...That will be the moment our society loses its grip with what is right...I don't believe that truth is subjective...If you redefine [ changes the perception of what is good, what is right, and what is just..."


Giants fans should note that former Giant Michael Strahan as well as NY Giants owner Steve Tisch posted videos this week in support of marriage equality which you can watch HERE and HERE.

  3. Man, another reason to hate David Tyree other than his stupidly lucky helmet catch that helped the Giants beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.

  5. “Marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors a relationship with God..."

    Oh shut this guy up! Dear God, what a true idiot. There are times when I have to shake my head repeatedly because of people like David Tyree and the sickness that inflicts them. His religion needs to be condemned.

  6. First off, there is no such thing as "very unique." Unique is one of a kind, something cannot be more one of a kind than something else. Since there are millions of married couples it is anything but unique.

    Second, how do two atheist getting married reflect god?

    Finally, in this sentence from a braised short rib recipe: "You allow all the flavors to marry while cooking on the stovetop or in the oven," does the word "marry" mean between one woman and one man? No, "marry" already has different meanings without gays getting involved.

  7. Oh please of it was the other way round you would be kinda singing his praises ish though I know you tend to like your athletes white like Ben Cohen.

  8. Huh? How does marriage mirror our relationship with God (any more or less than our other relationships?)How does he know this anarchy is going to start? And seriously, does this idiot really think same sex marriage is going to start to blur right and wrong. Has he read a newspaper, seen a newscast or checked a news website oh in the last.. forever!! There are so many holes in thois guys logic, its beyond ridiculous!!

  9. Did you honestly think Maggie Gallagher Srivastav and NOM would be able to find anyone who could speak intelligently ?
    This guy had to have been duped into doing this...He's an idiot.

  10. Dude, you made no sense AT ALL.

    Thanks for playing, though....!

  11. Tyree is a total jerk with money. He spits on the history of the Civil Rights Movement, racism, etc...

    How in the world can a person of color be so twisted like this?

    Right now I hate that I even share the same skin color with him. ughhh.....

  12. It boggles the mind that a black man can be so judgmental and deny a gay man or woman their right to marry. I wonder how Mr. "Full of himself" Tyree would see this if it were still illegal for a black man to marry a white woman. I am sure Mr. Tyree thought that inter-racial marriage being illegal was wrong, and yet he's okay with gay marriage being wrong. What a double-standard spewing hypocrite. I don't care how good of a football player the man is -- He's a jerk!

  13. This guy just needs to get f&@cked. Hard. It's obvious he spends too much of his time thinking about it.

  14. I really like in a twisted way these retards trying desperately to form Natural Law agruments against gay marriage, they show zero understanding of the shortcomings of this purely subjective and morally bereft ethical system. The lack of understanding they show of the need for the rise of civil law in the first place has been their indoctrination from birth, so an idiot like this IS being honest.

    However, playing with fire and calling yourself a firefighter has inevitable consequences that I don't think our idiot Tyree has even begun to think through. I'd almost recommend he read Plato's symposium, and at least look up the Wiki definition of Thomism, if only to understand it's ethical shortcomings, but I'd rather watch him get hammered in public. He does, after all, deserve every bit of it.

  15. What a moron.

    Anyways @ JOE B: Steve Youngs wife was the one against Prop 8. Steve Young never publically revealed HIS feelings on that issue.

    Hes also mormon and deeply religious... so sadly you have to do the math.Pretty sure that means that his wife is gay friendly but Steve .... not so much.

  16. What an idiot!

    Posted by: Rex | Jun 15, 2011 11:30:12 PM

  17. Wow, this is a shocker. An African American heterosexual male openly and comfortably bashing gays, and speaking out against our rights? Let's hope Tracy Morgan, Kobe Bryant, 50 Cent, Isaiah Washington, Tim Hardaway, Allen Iverson, Larry Johnson, or the Reverend Fill N. Blank don't get any ideas...

  18. Warning to Str8 Women. This guy believes in a family structure with the man playing the 'god' part.

  19. According to Wikipedia he lives in Wayne NJ. His full name is David Michael Tyree. There is a David M. Tyree at 221 Walnut St, Apt. #2, Wayne NJ. Another apartment in this building sold in 1998 for $135K. Not very high end, imo. One has to wonder if he didn't do this PSA for a paycheck!

  20. Always find it amusing how these former crack and alcohol addicts suddenly "find God" and feel it is their responsibility to tell the rest of the world how to live their lives.

    Since his pro-football career is no more he seems to have found his position in life as shilling for groups like NOM - seems like maybe he took one too many hits to the head.

    But honestly he'll have no impact on anyone who hasn't already made up their mind to support inequality - former athletes rarely impact anything of importance.

  21. Dementia pugilistica rears it's ugly head, and it's new spokesman is David Tyree.

  22. theological crock of sheeut.

  23. We now have an opportunity to get the NFL's official stance on this issue. Did NOM get permission to use NFL footage for this interview? If not, will they force NOM to remove it? Does anyone have any contacts at the NFL to find out?

    Posted by: Edd | Jun 16, 2011 12:41:05 PM

  24. There is a "contact us" link on I notified them of the use of their footage. Lets see what happens. I don't think they would have given permission to use it.
