    Johnny Manziel?

    jerk

    clown

    idiot

    should he be suspended for the season if he did receive cash for those autographs?

    that's just one topic.

    feel free to talk about anything from college to pro football!!

    Hernandez says he's innocent!!!

    Not only did he supposedly take money, it was allegedly 5 figures! He's a smart guy, so IF he did it, he clearly knew it was wrong and chose to do it anyway.

    IF he did it, he should be ineligible to play college football, IMO, and not just for one season.

    Didn't I hear that this supposedly occurred around bowl season and Heisman-voting time last year? I'm not too sure he shouldn't lose the Heisman as well if he's found guilty of doing something so egregious. Give it to the runner-up last year.

    There are just some things that are too over the top to be chalked up to being ignorant and a "kid". He needs to pay a (big) price if found guilty.

    his family is well off also.

    the Ohio State guys got free tattoos and were suspended.

    A.J. Green autographed his jersey and sold it and got a 4 game suspension.

    Johnny Football the whole year?

    He does not wanna be at College Station anyway

    Yeah, he's made negative remarks about the University and the area and got thrown out of a frat party at UT (of all places). What was an A&M player doing at a frat party at Texas?!?!

    He's always raising eyebrows with the things he says and does, and typically brings his problems on himself. It's strange, considering that he IS intelligent.

    Maybe he's like Pee Wee Herman.....he's just a loner; a rebel! rolleyes.gif

    should the eagles wr get suspended?

    post #7 of 121
    If football players should be treated the same as everyone else, then yes, of course he should be suspended. But we all know that athletes are not expected to measure up to the same standards as the "normal" person.

    This case has become laughable. Riley Cooper was initially going to take an extended leave of absence and "get counseling" to not be dumb and a jerk, and after only 4 days, he accomplished that and is already back with the team.

    Ridiculous. Since he can catch a football, his life goes on as if nothing happened, while others' lives are destroyed for making the same mistake. It doesn't seem like it should be that hard for everyone to be treated the same, but it is.

    I think that what he did was not nearly as bad as taking steroids or any other scandal other players commit. I realize it is illegal, but he shouldn't hget the Heisman taken away because that had nothing to do with his athletic ability. It's siliar to Pete Rose. If say A-Rod gets into the Hall of Famre, or Barry Bond's record still stand, then Rose sure as hell better get into the Hall of Fame becuase his offence didn't alter his ability to play.

    Will Manziel play or not?

    Plaxico out for the season?

    why did the Steelers sign him anyway?

    post #10 of 121

    I think Manziel will play.  Wouldn't be surprised if he received a 2 game suspension or something at some point in the season.  There's someone who sure let it go to his head and lost focus.

     

    Yeah, looking like Plaxico done for career.

    Manziel has to play against Bama

    NCAA is all about making cash

    post #12 of 121

    Yeah he'll get little more than a slap on the wrist. 2 or 3 games at most 

    I think the NCAA got the hypocrisy of the situation when they stopped selling his jersey on their website

    either way I'm more of an NFL fan. I went to a small college that doesn't have a football team. I sort of root for the OSU Beavers but the only team I really care about is the Seahawks

    Manziel - solid performance will be overshadowed by stupid penalty

    Sanchez shouldn't be an NFL quarterback...  The Jets should see what Ken O'Brien is doing...
