Did anyone catch ESPN 's montage last night of the pure evil that Johnny Football represents? It was a laugh I desperately needed.

Feel like I spent $1000 on beer last night, you guys. And it all went to Jerry Jones.

ESPN is a disgrace. For a "news" organization who single handedly destroyed the Big East and bastardized the ACC all in the name of billions of dollars in football TV money to try and make a 20 year old who signed a few autographs out as the evil one is just splendid.

ESPN isn't even pretending to be a news organization anymore. Pulling out of the concussion feature they were doing with PBS is the most blatant statement of that.

Tebow's life after football updates will be ESPN's bread-and-butter.

I love Manziel's game. And I love that he's partying it up and having a good time despite the moronic media trying to make him out as some moral heathen. But as far as his behavior on the field, it's always been shitty. Two separate issues.

I don't mind celebrations in the least. But taunting is for assholes. If your play can't speak for itself, then you're either not that great or (in Manziel's case) just a fucking dick.

I thought telling the guy who wouldn't sign an autograph for him was hysterical. And the money thing has been his move since last year, as was pointed out.

No one player is bigger than any team, organization, school, etc. Johnny Manziel has more God given athletic talent in his left ear than I probably have in my entire body, no doubt about it. On the football field he's an absolute stud, a study, gives opposing coaches and Defenses nightmares, heartburn, etc.

I realize he is only 20 years old, but still, at some point you have to grow up & act like the leader of your team, not some cunt-hole Justin Bieber wannabe pissing on your own image, school, and surrounding yourself with enablers, pimps, and asshole lickers.

I mean, moderation, Johnny, ever heard of it? With everything that went on this summer, it would have been easy for Johnny Football Hero to come out onto the field, as U2DMfan said, and just let his play speak for itself. They were playing an inferior opponent, no need to showboat or act like roses grow from your anus.

Before someone says, "But he's only a kid, he's only 20" let me point out that there are a lot of 20 year old Americans right now who would die for the opportunities Manziel has had. Some of those 20 year olds will be putting their lives on the line for their country instead, in some faraway land, but they will do so with more class and dignity in their left ear than this fucker has in his entire body or soul.

That said, go ahead and taunt your opposing team, Johnny, youre a hero to people who like that kind of stuff. And when the Alabama Defense (or whomever) rips your fucking leg off, im going to be watching it from behind my flat screen, this year or whenever it happens, with the same indifference ill have when Justin Bieber wraps his Ferrari around a telephone pole.

All things considered Johnny Manziel is the kind of player whom I normally loathe.

But as he's become sort of the torch bearer over the hypocrisy of the NCAA and national media... I love him... if only because his own douchebaggery is exposing the even greater douchebaggery of the NCAA and ESPN.

Fight the real enemy.

Johnny Manziel doesn't owe anyone anything. If his teammates and coaches can deal with it, we should all be able to as well.

Id say he owes something to his team, his coaches, and perhaps the fans of Texas A&M. There is no "I" in team, afterall, and this guy is getting one hell of an opportunity that millions would love to have. Instead of playing with the class his organization deserves, he apparently hasn't learned anything from his mistakes and seems hell-bent to continue on doing whatever he pleases.

I'm not so sure the teammates and coaches can deal with it for much longer, as the comments made by the A&M coach after the game would indicate he wasn't too pleased:

Quote:
"That wasn't very smart. That's why he didn't go back in the game either," Sumlin said. "You would hope at this point, you'd learn something from that. We're still working on that. He wasn't going back in the game no matter what was happening."
I'm honestly amazed people would defend this guy. I've talked to a couple of A&M alumns who are quite sick of it all. If this keeps going, the distractions might literally tear the team apart, which would not be good. Anyway, to each their own, I suppose. We do seem to live in a society where good deeds are not as exciting as bad behavior. Myself, as a kid I was a fan of John McEnroe, who was quite the poster boy for bad behavior on the the tennis court. Manziel for President someday, I guess.
