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.

    • This is a fundamental that is that ruins so many golf swings before they start. Let's look at why. Bending at the waist is physically easier - it takes less work from your legs to bend over and your body naturally avoids work.  The big problem is that you are out of balance by the time you reach the top of your backswing and worse... Your upper body weight is not over your legs which means a ground up swing is dead. Through your transition your weight needs to be firmly planted over your loaded legs so 1) you can linger in your transition in balance until your forward weight shift happens and 2) So that your lower legs are in a position of leverage to get your weight moving and to have enough spring to keep pushing until your weight has made it all the way to your left foot.  So, if you don't love your swing check for this setup flaw. So, many people who swing over the top don't realize they had no chance way back from their setup. 
    • Good topic. I voted breaking 80 is harder. Obviously the two are connected but if push came to shove I think more golfers could learn how to avoid making doubles than be taught or acquire the skills to break 80. Breaking 80 for many golfers would mean significantly raising the level of their games, while not making a double is more about avoiding the big miss and game planning/course management. More specific to the OP's question relating to a golfers that shoots in the low 80's and is trying to break through, it could be one or other, most likely a combo of both. For myself, like @The Recreational Golfer I've had more rounds in the 70's than double bogey free rounds so could you say it's "easier" for me to shoot in the 70's than avoid making a double? Yes and no, depends on how you look at it. Even though I messed up on one or two individual holes I had to play fairly solid golf the other 16/17 holes to break 80, IMO that's more difficult than avoiding making a double. Even on a round where I didn't make a double I had to perform at a consistent level for 18 holes to break 80. If you told me I had to play 10 rounds where I had to break 80 and 10 rounds where I couldn't make a double, I think the latter would be easier for me. 
    • Good to hear. An observation for you... When you start getting your lower body into it guess what?  You start doing work!  And that takes fitness.  Some people have an illusion of an effortless golf swing. But in reality, it's effortless for your wrists but more work for your legs and core.  So, keep is mind as you go from hitter to swinger your fitness, core, and lower body strength demands go up. 
    • I'll answer your question with another question: If you drop the 3H, what would you hit for a 215 yard shot, or even a 210 or 205 yard shot? Are you comfortable gripping down on your 4-wood to cut distance off of it by that much? I personally don't see much issue with keeping the 3H in the bag since it isn't actually hurting anything. You say the other alternative is to drop the 4-wood, but why do you feel that you must drop anything at all? It's okay to have a 10 yard gap. If it really concerns you, though, I would think that the best way to go would be to swap from a 4-wood to a 3-wood. This would increase the gap between your 3H and the next longer club without affecting the gap between the 3 and 4 hybrid, which seems to be a number you like better for a gap. I'm just a little confused why you'd drop down to 13 clubs if the hybrid isn't costing you strokes. I know I find hybrids easier to hit than a wood that I'm trying to hit shorter than usual. I absolutely hate to hit a 3/4 3-wood to cover the cap between a full 3-wood and my 3-iron, but the number for a 3/4 3-wood is such a rare distance that I'd much rather have consistent gaps up through a 3-iron than a big jump from a 4i to a 3H. In my case a 3H would hurt my game, but it doesn't seem like yours is doing you any harm and could be protecting you from an awkward 4 wood shot.
    • This might not be the most helpful for balls and gloves (though I do see golf ball deals pop up at least once a week), but golfwrx's classified section is a great place to get deals on a lot of stuff. I got my AD-DI shaft there for $130, along with my KBS shafts from 3-LW for another $150 for the set. The AD-DI was used for a week (didn't have a mark) and the KBS shafts clearly only ever had a grip installed on the 7-iron. Good deals there, at least from what I've found, but mostly on clubs and shafts (though they do have golf balls in their classifieds every so often).  The nice part about that is they also have a WTB forum, where you post what you want and people come to you. That's actually what I did for the iron shafts. I posted about what I wanted and I had about 7 responses to choose from within 24 hours, so it's pretty active. For golf balls other than ProV1's that would be your best bet for finding them.
