David Tyree

Sport: NFL
Years: 2003-2009
David Tyree was loved by many in New York when he made is ridiculous catch to help the Giants win Super Bowl XLII in 2008. A knee injury and brief stint with the Ravens before retiring in 2010 kept Tyree under the radar for a couple years before his political views put him right back in the headlines in 2011. Tyree, who is a born-again Christian, openly opposed the idea of legalizing same-sex marriage in New York and joined the National Organization for Marriage. He created a storm of controversy when he said that the Marriage Equality Act would "be the beginning of our country sliding toward anarchy" and that he would trade his Super Bowl catch for marriage to remain between a man and a woman. Needless to say a lot of Giants fans and same-sex marriage supporters didn't appreciate Tyree's statement. What's that saying? If you don't have anything nice to say...STFU? Eh, close enough.
