NEW YORK (WFAN) – While the New York State Senate wrestles with whether to bring same-sex marriage to a vote, the debate is raging in the Big Apple’s pro sports scene.

Rangers agitator Sean Avery was first to voice his support for the measure, saying, “committed couples should be able to marry the person they love” in a video released by the Human Rights Campaign.

Giants chairman Steve Tisch and former Big Blue pass rusher Michael Strahan have since filmed spots for the HRC’s New Yorkers for Marriage Equality video push.

Now, David Tyree, best known for his astounding helmet-catch for the Giants in Super Bowl XLII, is railing against same-sex marriage and warning of “anarchy” if it’s approved.

“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 a video produced by the National Organization for Marriage. “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.”

He added: “Marriage is one of those things that is the backbone of society. So if you redefine it, it changes the way we educate our children, it changes the perception of what is good, what is right, what is just.”

Tyree’s comments echoed those of hockey agent Todd Reynolds, who blasted Avery last month when he tweeted, “Very sad to read Sean Avery’s misguided support of same-gender ‘marriage’. Legal or not, it will always be wrong.”

“This is what I do know, you can’t teach something that you don’t have,” Tyree said. “So two men will never be able to show a woman how to be a woman. And that’s just simple. That’s just for a lack of better terms, common sense.”
