Former New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree says he would give up his Super Bowl win to end gay marriage.

Tyree first came out against the institution during an interview with Maggie Gallagher, board chair of the National Organization for Marriage, the nation's most vociferous opponent of marriage equality.

In the videotaped interview, he said passage of a gay marriage bill in New York would lead to anarchy.

“If they pass this gay marriage bill, what I know will happen if this does come forth is this will be the beginning of our country sliding toward, you know, it's a strong word, but anarchy,” Tyree said.

Speaking with The New York Daily News, Tyree, who is best known for his Super Bowl XLII catch that snatched victory from the previously undefeated New England Patriots, said he would be willing to trade in that win for the bill's defeat.

“Honestly, I probably would,” he told the paper.

“Nothing means more to me than that my God would be honored,” Tyree said. “Being the fact that I firmly believe God created and ordained marriage between a man and a woman, I believe that that's something that should be fought for at all costs.”
