“I think if more people would focus and try to be like him and carry themselves the way he does, I think this league could be better,” said Umenyiora, who was speaking at M&M’s World in Times Square.
He had tweeted late last week:
I go to Nigeria for a week, and when i came back, HALF the NFL has been arrested. What happened???— Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) July 20, 2012
“My phone wasn’t working over there and as soon as I turned my phone on all these reports started coming in about all these people getting arrested,” Umenyiora said. “For the life of me I can’t understand it. It’s just ridiculous.... People need to be more focused and more grateful for what it is that they have.
“Coming from where I came from and seeing what I saw, all that poverty, people who have nothing, they would cut off both their legs to be given the opportunity that these people have. To be messing around like that is real unfortunate.”
“I know everybody likes to make fun of Tim Tebow, talk about him, but he sets an outstanding example,” Umenyiora said.
Say what you want about his skills as a QB, etc. Umenyiora is right on the mark with Tim v the rest of the NFL.
