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.

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.

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
