    That's why I wish he wasn't on the browns. I want to watch him fail, but I'm also a brown's fan so that would hurt my favorite team

    If he can't control himself under the pressure of preseason it could be a long year for Johnny Futball.

    Wow. So you think athletes acting like immature a-holes is a good thing? Call me an old stick-in-the-mud if you want, but that's terrible. Personally I would rather have more sportsmanship than less, but whatever.

    Unless you like having 8-year-olds copy what they see on TV and acting like a-holes in public themselves. They're already immature, so they can't help that.

    And as for the guy saying they should let them dunk on the goalposts again - if Jimmy Graham hadn't knocked the uprights askew with dunking last year, causing the game to be delayed, that probably still would be legal. If you're gonna dunk, you gotta get up there and do it instead of hanging on the "rim." C'mon, man!

    Re: Manziel Gesture

    It's kind of funny how some people absolutely love him while others absolutely hate him. Not a whole lot of people indifferent.

    Personally, I'm not a fan. Call me boring, but I'd rather have my kids look up to a guy like Peyton Manning than this spoiled tool. I fully anticipate him being irrelevant within 3 years.

    He will be out if the league in a couple years...can't run around like he does, eventually a linebacker or d lineman wraps you up and it's over...his arm isn't good enough anyway, not an nfl player, great college player, just not nfl player

    Re: Manziel Gesture

    1. You don't know how football works if you think Manziel will have a successful career. The only reason Manziel will ever start a football game is to make money from the fans, not to win.

    2. I'm so glad Manziel is in Cleveland and nowhere else. If there was one place where I had to send the ********* of all role models, it would be Cleveland, because those kids already have horrible lives.

    3. I wish nothing but failure for him. He thinks he's all that. You think he really cares that he was late to a meeting? You think he really cares that people are calling him out for flipping the bird? Seriously, in the NFL, I would take Steele Jantz or any former Hawk QB over Johnny Manziel. They may not be as talented as Manziel, but at least they won't bring embarrassment to the organization.

    Manziel may be the anti-Tebow, but he's taking the same course as Tebow. Media acts like he's all they got for one, maybe two years, then realize he's a pile of crap on the field, he gets cut.

    Unlike Tebow, he will announce at the age of 25 that he's bankrupt because he spent all his moneys on strippers and blow.

    Biggest example is going into crowd and taking a ball from the fans on the rare occasion one flies in there...obvious that the cost of having one or two extra balls at a game far outweighs the negative pr of a rich organization taking balls from fans.

    Johnny Football was given a gift when the biggest sports star on the planet came back to Cleveland. If I'm his agent or publicist I'm counting the days until LeBron plays games for the Cavs.

    Re: Manziel Gesture

    Sure he wasn't pretending to be from Texas by doing the hookem horns gesture as he was embarrassed by his performance?

    This actually doesn't surprise me a bit, coming from you.

    I wouldn't say that I hate the guy, but I do think his act has already gotten old and we're not even to the start of the regular season yet.

    I'm not even sure he's a "bad guy" necessarily, but he does need to grow up.

    Flipped the bird over his shoulder for a split second as he ran away from the Skins bench? You're a big man Johnny Football. Haha, what a joke.

    I wish people wouldn't compare Maziel and Tebow. Tebow is a far better person.
