Johnny Manziel

20 posts in this topic

This guy isn't very bright. I'm glad my team passed on him.  Pretty incriminating photograph. If anyone here tries to suggest he's doing anything else with rolled money in Las Vegas, I'll laugh you out of the thread.

He was using it to shoot spitballs at the girls in the club.

Teams knew what they were going to get with Manziel which I'm sure is partially why he dropped to the Browns with the 22nd pick.  Tough weekend for the Browns, Josh Gordon gets hits with a DUI and Johnny Football is rolling up bills in Vegas.

Eh, who knows. I gave up on the Browns (again) after they took Manziel. I took up FanDuel DFS for the sole purpose of being able to enjoy NFL football in general since the Browns have been nothing but a disappointment during my 29 years of life.

I'm having more fun watching the speculation on LeBron coming back to the only team I care about in this city now. The Browns are destined for another 4-12 season. 6-10 tops.

EDIT: From the inflatable swan, to the money phone, to the stupid finger rubbing/cash thing, to this... I can only laugh. The dude needs to grow the hell up. I wish Ray Lewis was still in the league to clean his clock a few times. Hell, maybe the fool knows he's not going to get the starting job and he's in Billy Madison mode in hops of being traded asap. I just don't know, but I know he's immature and a douche from all of the obvious and incriminating evidence.

History says he is a head case ... who needs to mature. I read an article on his family history about a year ago - interesting.

Pretty sure he could get off with the "R. Kelly" defense and just say "That's not me." :-P

Or from a couple of the comments on the actual story:

  • He's about to give it to Josh Gordon and is just helping him out.
  • He wants a snack and the vending machine keeps rejecting his crinkled dollar.
  • He's tipping the bathroom guy
  • He's making a straw for his drink.

I didn't even like Manziel when he was sword fighting with Liam Neeson in Rob Roy. I thought he was a horses ass even back then.

I think the tourism board is going to have to finally change their famous "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" slogan.

He's making a straw for his drink.

Or he could have been making a tiny telescope to better scope out babes on the dance floor?

But yea, what an idiot. Everyone knows you snort your lines in a stall :-P Duhhhhh.

I have a feeling a conversation between Johnny 8Ball and Josh Gordon would have gone something like this too:

Warning NSFW and very offensive language :

Sorry, dude. Steroids.

Too soon? My bad.

Actually, upon further review, that's a bridge too far with that link -- even though I know that's a popular movie... I'm not comfortable with the language there in that scene, even if I'm using the scene in general to poke fun at Manziel and Josh Gordon. My fault, guys. Won't happen again. Even though I myself don't use that word, it's used in the scene by a character, and indirectly, I guess I'm using it here, and that wasn't my intention. I'm being an idiot again.

Manziel is still acting like an ass though. Hate to see the guy waste his talent on partying like that.

In all seriousness, how the hell do people know that he's not trolling the media by having someone take that picture? He's well aware that everyone takes his picture and sends it out and it makes ESPN/national news outlets. He's repeatedly complained about being followed 24/7, so maybe he's just trolling the hell out of everyone. He's not due for a drug test until April 15, 2015 but he can be forced to take a test at any time before that if there's incriminating evidence of drug, or banned substance abuse. If he's forced to take a test and passes, he'd easily get the last laugh versus the media. But, it would be a super douche move to keep feeding the fire.

My personal opinion is that it is a staged photo and he's being immature and trolling people. I think the kid needs to get his clock cleaned a few times before he straightens up. Past greats like Aikman, Young, Favre and current great QBs have all said the same thing in different wording. He'll grow up at some point during the season if he's thrown to the wolves. If he doesn't, he may have a short career.

I'll tell you what. If he staged a picture of himself doing cocaine in a Las Vegas bathroom, that's actually 1000x more idiotic than ACTUALLY doing cocaine in a Las Vegas bathroom.  I think it's ludicrous to suggest he would do this on purpose.  He has to at least be smart enough to not "pretend" to be doing drugs in a photo.  The Browns would be so on his case for creating a media spectacle on purpose. I don't think this theory is possible.  Guy got caught doing blow in the bathroom.

Here's another interesting part of the photo- notice he has his gold chain tucked into the front of his shirt when he's in the bathroom. In all of the other pictures from that night, it's hanging out, like it always is.  That would be some pretty elaborate staging.

I don't know, I wasn't there. I was just stating my opinion like you are. The kid is definitely not an intellectual on a professional level, obviously, so you can't accuse him of being smart for sure. He's absolutely idiotic, or at least acting like it, and that's my point. I wouldn't put anything past little Johnny at this point in time. It's just sad at the end of the day as I'm a die hard Browns fan and I was hoping for something much better. Who knows what will happen, but things are obviously not looking like too great right now.

Given the Browns had already told him to cool it, I can't see any logic in trolling the media intentionally unless he's looking to force the Browns to trade him.  I guess it's possible that Manziel is realizing that without Gordon or a true #1 to throw the ball to he's going to struggle with the Browns.

I think he's just a dumb kid that was partying before the season started.

Don't you guys know that rolled up money is the best way to apply Rogaine? You gotta be precise with how often you apply that stuff, he's just staying on schedule....lol

Seriously tho, how many pro athletes (NBA, MLB, NFL) do cocaine on occasion? Shoot.. how many are doing it RIGHT NOW?? Like most of you have said, he is just dense...no common sense whatsoever. Part of me wishes I could experience that mind-set just for a week or so...not having a single rational thought, and not feeling any bad about it whatsoever. Must be liberating in a way...until the police/TMZ show up.

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
