    Why the media is so obsessed with Johnny Manziel's partying?....It's fuckin' ridiculous

    Train wrecks are hard to catch as they happen.

    He was such a big time college QB and draft pick and he's throwing it all away. The new media and new breed of fans are offended. Their words, not mine. But it sucks that Manziel is throwing it all away.


    Back in the day, no one cared. You drank, you did your stuff and the teams and media never cared. Today, different story. If Namath was around today....forget about it! :snicker:

    he had a chance to live all these people's dream
    be a pro-athlete and be adored and shit

    he would rather just get fucked up and be a dumbass kid
    outside of the trashing of a hotel room and stuff there's nothing wrong with his choice if you ask me

    Because we're a nation of PC pussies. Our 24 hour news cycles and access to celebutards like the Kardashians make people feel like they have some say in how everyone else should be living.

    In an effort not to offend advertisers and patrons, leagues have become over involved in regulating off the field activities. They've also tailored the in game experience to be as milquetoast and family friendly as possible.

    We're soft. We allowed this to happen and this is what we deserve.

    Because Manziel actually had a chance to be a decent to good NFL qb and instead has decided to literally piss it away

    If Manziel had a QB rating of 110 nobody would care.

    because he's not joe namath
    if he was throwing 4 TDs a game and winning, no one cares.
    but he appears to not know playbooks, not know how to read pro defenses, etc, etc,

    so the big deal is he should be 100% on focused on working on his football game, not his club game

    Ya. This must be it... When is this "we're so pc" shit gonna end. Hey dummie, we've never been less pc... Only a true tard would mention pc and kardashians in the same breath. What part about the kardashians would be pc? The drugs, porn, oding, or the pimping? Get a clue
