    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    Figures that Jiri Hubalek gets 3 games for borrowing an old beat up car from an Iowa booster, CJ Bruton gets a lifetime ban for taking a few thousand in Australia and Lucca gets a season for just playing on a team with people who made money in Europe but Johnny Football gets a half for accepting thousands. But the NCAA is an equal distributor of justice...

    So, do you care less or not? And

    Re: Johnny Manziel suspended for half

    Listen to the explanation on the actual video. lol (with Hassle).

    Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M Aggies suspended for 1st half of season opener against Rice Owls - ESPN

    basically, they suspended him .5 games as he should have known not to sign things people can make money off of later. What a joke.

    Apparently there is a clause inhibits players signing autographs for "commercial purposes", which I guess then puts the burden on players to ask each person who they are signing an autograph for exactly how they intend to use that autograph.

    Hence the cash point. The NCAA has shown that they want absolute proof that money exchanges hands before considering a suspension. It has not been disputed that the autographs were signed. Any reasonable person would conclude that some compensation was given to Johnny or his handler.

    So just as long as you tell the NCAA that you didn't take money, they have now shown that they will not punish you.

    So your saying if 24 people sold there autographs obtained at different times from a player, we could get them suspended for a whole season.

    Basically I think they are saying that when signing things in bulk like that there is no way it could possibly be for personal use and not to be immediately sold for profit.

    When the ISU players sign some stuff at fan fest, they aren't signing hundreds of items for autograph brokers.

    The joke is the NCAA did not do more digging. Let me first say, I think this is an incredibly dumb rule but the rules and the rules and JM should be held accountable. But to suspend him under this means JM must have told investigators "yes, I signed a ton of stuff and I knew the guy was going to sell it, but they never paid me." To believe someone who seems as self-absorbed as JM would take the time to sign thousands of pictures all so someone else can exclusively benefit is ridiculous, and it can't be that hard to find a way to tie JM to the money.

    So Jadeveon Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater are being investigated too?

    I don't think that you need to tie the money to JM. The fact that this Nate guy is setting up deals like this should immediately make him an agent. His dad was quoted in an article saying that the family pays Nate to be JM's handler. That seems to me like Johnny has signed on with an agent making him inelligible.
