According to reports, Johnny Manziel had a six-hour long meeting with the NCAA on Sunday to discuss whether or not the reigning Heisman Trophy winner had done anything to warrant a lengthy suspension in 2013. In a perfect world, the two parties would meet for a few minutes and then leave the room with everything left on the table and no questions left unanswered.
However, this is the modern-day NCAA were talking about — perhaps the biggest joke of an organization that the sports world has ever seen.
I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the Texas A&M Aggies‘ quarterback was suspended for the entire season, but it also wouldn’t shock me if the NCAA decided to let Manziel off off of the hook without a simple slap on the wrist, because inconsistency doesn’t even begin to describe the NCAA’s hypocrisy as of late.
Here’s something to think about: Manziel spent a night in jail this summer for an incident in College Station that involved his use of a fake ID, but the college football brass didn’t dare punish him. On the other hand, the NCAA is now on its high horse and is ready to can Johnny Football simply because he allegedly made a few bucks by signing his name.
Sooner or later the NCAA is going to have to change its name to something more suitable like “the Mob” or “the Mafia,” because this crooked bunch rules with an iron first that is permanently crooked.
