Ask any NFL fan what they think of when they hear the name David Tyree and you're bound to get the same answer: "The Catch." But as it turns out, he might be trying to change his legacy. In a shocking new video that was just released by the National Organization for Marriage to try and get the New York Assembly to to vote against same-sex marriages, the former Giants receiver speaks out against themâ€”and even says that he thinks they could lead to "anarchy."
"What I know will happen if this does come forth is this will be the beginning of our country sliding toward, it is a strong word, but anarchy," Tyree says in the clip. "The moment we have, if you trace back even to other cultures, other countries, that will be the moment where our society in itself loses its grip with what's right. It's about what's right. It's about how can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all of a sudden, because of a minority, an influential minority, has a push or an agenda and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country, not founded by man, it is something that is holy and sacred. I think there is nothing more honorable, worth fighting for, especially if we really care about our future generations."
SMH. Not for nothing, but we liked you better when you were "The Catch" guy, dude. [via ESPN]
