Be careful when he does certain things. Like walking away instead of confronting the dbag who poured a beer on him?

Let's get this straight. HE didn't do anything wrong by going to that party. Frankly, the guy who did that is lucky that Manziel's friends on the Texas football team weren't there or that guy might have gotten the sh*t kicked out of him. Maybe he should be a little more careful or have his backup around, but he didn't do anything wrong or inappropriate, no matter if the media reports it every time he farts in public.

Do you think that a woman should walk down a dark alley alone in a part of town she's unfamiliar with with 5,000 dollars taped to her forehead?

If something happens to her, I wouldn't blame the woman. I'd blame whoever decided to take advantage.

But...

In an ideal world people would be free to do whatever they wanted to as long as they weren't hurting anyone. But the reality is, we have to deal with real life and real life dictates that sometimes you have to make wise decisions based on who you are and where you're at. Sometimes you have to exclude yourself from situations where you could possibly see trouble/drama unfolding.

Manziel seems to either have a poor concept of that, or doesn't really care. Either way, his actions are going to be scrutinized.

Default Re: Manziel

half the football "hero's" of the past were just downright dooche-bags, so I could sum up my thoughts as...."eh". As far as on the field, I just watched the Tamu vs Bama game recast yesterday and dooche-bags or not, Manziel is a College football God.

I gotta do some work on our word filters...I can't even spell out *********!

Pretty good look at it from my view, he's just setting himself up for a huge backlash. He's been put in the spotlight he should be responsible about and realize he's got millions on the line for it. All he has to do is work hard for another few years and then he's set for life.

Hopefully he grows up, but if he doesn't and has a horrible year for A&M they'll make him part of the bonfire tradition lol.

Anybody think that JM is going to do what HE wants to do and realy doesn't care about millions of $$$$, what the media or anybody else thinks.

Some peoples's lives aren't ruled by the almighty $$$$. As hard as that may be for many people to believe.

Agree, the guy isn't doing himself any favors right now. What he is doing off of the field right now is also going on his resume to NFL teams.

Get serious. Don't try to make him into some sort of Mother Teresa. "Oh I don't care about the millions, I will give it all up to help out the poor collegiates (for another college) while I down this brewski in the name of a greater cause."

Can y'all stop apologizing for this talented Justin Bieber ahole?

He has time to mature. Y'all acting like all this is OK ain't helping.

No one does delusional like Longhorn fans do delusional. There are Horns thinking this means Manziel transfers to Texas and wins a second Heisman with a second school.

True but the article espn just published has me a bit concerned that Johnny is under immense pressure that we frankly can't understand and that his parents are worried enough to share it with espn.

And the sad part is this manziel story will overshadow the fact that an A&M football player died in a car accident last night.


The season can't get here soon enough.

Goodness gracious. My sisters went to school with him and told me what an a-hole he was. One of my friends played football with him at Tivy. He hated him. Reading a story like this where the parents seemed to be lost. I don't feel sorry for him.

His parents worry about the pressure. There was enough pressure winning the heisman. But Johnny had to throw the rock star persona with it. This offseason. Maybe when the season starts, he can refocus

You do realize that Manziel himself is causing a lot of that pressure?

These recent Manziel articles just highlight what some of us have said all along. He's got some maturing to do.

That "we frankly can't understand" line is ridiculous as well. This isn't rocket science.

Hmm, maybe Mack Brown knew what he was doing after all when he refused to recruit him. Pretty sad.
