    The NCAA is investigating whether Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was paid for signing hundreds of autographs on photos and sports memorabilia in January, "Outside the Lines" has learned. Two sources tell "Outside the Lines" that the Texas A&M quarterback agreed to sign memorabilia in exchange for a five-figure flat fee during his trip to Miami for the Discover BCS National Championship. Both sources said they witnessed the signing, though neither saw the actual exchange of money.........

    His parents are rich. He doesn't need the money. What a dumbass if this is true.

    While I see your point, never, ever underestimate the drive that some loser's have to get an autograph...

    Yeah. I added a thread on that a few months ago. Adult autograph seekers creep me out.

    The media really wants to bring him down. A 19 year old partying, that's really odd behavior. Now going back to January. NCAA screw the athletes but if one makes a few bucks he's a scumbag.

    I do not care for Mr. Manziel one bit but this sounds like a witch-hunt to me.

    All the other star athletes are home on a Saturday night? :rolleyes:

    I'm just saying he just gets more attention because he won the heisman, plenty of other kids that age partying a bit too hard.

    My favorite team is good enough to avoid the #1 pick in 2014 so they won't be making that mistake. :yes:
