FLORHAM PARK, NJ - MARCH 26:  Quarterback Tim Tebow addresses the media as he is introduced as a New York Jet at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center on March 26, 2012 in Florham Park, New Jersey. Tebow, traded from the Denver Broncos last week, will be the team's backup quarterback according to Jets head coach Rex Ryan. Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, started 11 games in 2011 for Denver and finished with a 7-4 record as a starter. He led the Broncos to a playoff overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round before eventually losing to the New England Patriots in the next round.

AshleyMadison.com is apparently the "premier website for discreet connections."

In a not-so-discreet manner they've launched an attack on the NFL's most polarizing figure, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.

CNBC's Darren Rovell reports:

Hearing infidelity Web site @AshleyMadison is going to offer a $1M prize to any woman who can prove she slept with @TimTebow.

The web site wasted no time in responding to Rovell saying:

@darrenrovell @TimTebow - It's true Darren...we're just worried it might cost us millions!

Of all the disgusting ways to gain publicity, this has to rank right up there at the top.

Tebow's religion and abstinence are well documented and arguably the most talked about personal matters of any football player in the league. For whatever reason, people love to attack the superstar in any way, shape or form.

Rather than fight an uphill battle against those who will say or do anything for money and/or fame, Tebow chooses to shrug it all off with a smile and laugh.

The fact that things don't bother him are more than likely the reason people keep attacking him. And, of course, the fact that he overcomes all odds to succeed in an orthodox manner.

With these words we've already wasted too much time discussing some heinous website that promotes infidelity. The name "Tebow" and the word "infidelity" don't belong in the same sentence, let alone a bloody promotion.

For all the negative press, there is always some positive when it comes to No. 15, such as his scheduled visit to two Christian universities in the state of Ohio of this week to talk about "faith and football."

Even football-wise there is news, as Adam Schefter confirms that the Jets will use Tebow as a personal protector on the punt team.

The sad thing is that this very article gives AshleyMadison.com another chance for publicity, one they certainly don't deserve.

Riding the coattails of the QB in such a pathetic manner is an abhorrent and unjust act, but it comes with the territory of being Tim Tebow.

It's unfair, but true.

Don't expect anything to come of this and soon enough football will be the only thing worth talking aboutβ€”the draft is only two days away.
