Johnny Manziel in hot water … again. There’s a shocker for college football fans — not.
Some call him Johnny Manziel, others call him Johnny Football. I like to refer to him as a waste of god-given talent, plain and simple. Too harsh? Oh well.
Winning the Heisman trophy as a freshman has clearly gone to Manziel’s head. Okay, he’s a big-time celebrity now, but who does this kid really think he is? I mean, selling his autographs is just plain stupid. In my last article concerning Johnny Football, I mentioned the possibility of his behavior deeming him ineligible to continue playing as quarterback for the Texas A&M Aggies.
Well, he’s just added one more offense to his rap sheet that puts him one step closer to ineligibility.
According to a report by USA Today, “Manziel agreed to a ‘five-figure flat fee’ with an autograph broker named Drew Tieman for signing memorabilia during Manziel’s visit to the site of the 2013 BCS Championship game in January. The report cites two witnesses saying they saw Manziel sign the products but did not see money exchange hands.”
There was no exchange of money witnessed, huh? How convenient for him.
A full blown investigation by NCAA is underway and I am anxious to see what happens to good ole Johnny Football. However, I must admit I am starting to get a little sick of this kid, but my Spidey sense is telling me that this isn’t the last time we will hear about him. I seriously doubt I am the only one who feels that way.
Good luck to you, Johnny Football. It appears as if you’re really going to need it this time.
