Johnny Manziel's Stupid Dad

15 posts in this topic

Just thought this title needed its own thread.

I mean, I would totally appreciate my dad telling everyone I'm a drunk regardless of his intentions.

Yeah, but I doubt making a battle with possible alcohol dependency public is going to help him turn it around much.

To be fair, he may be right.

 

Manziel isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.

I get that, but how many of us were at 18-22 years old?

 

I just don't think making this issue public is of any help...  If he's already having a hard time dealing with stress and fame, what better way to increase it than letting the public know he is a drunkard and not good with living in the spotlight to begin with?  I'm sure opposing fans won't make a big deal out of it.  I'm sure he won't catch weird looks at parties or on campus now.  I'm sure even fellow students won't ever bring it up... lol.

 

Just seems really dumb to tell a reporter about this and make it public.  Makes me think his family may be dysfunctional as well.

Granted, a pretty high number of people are pulling stupid stunts at that age.

 

That said, most of those people don't have millions of dollars at stake in their futures.

 

Manziel definitely better wise up.

I think his problems might stem from a dipshit dad. Seriously, if you are concerned about your son potentially snapping or breaking down from scrutiny and pressure then don't go yapping to the media about your son and demons and drinking problems. My guess is Dad has played a big part in his son's issues.

Manziel seems like he's the most hated guy in college football currently. I lold so hard when Skip Bayless had him on an was acting like he's some kind of choir boy.

Boy isnt to smart.  He will be gone from Texas A&M after this season.  NCAA will try to suspend him and it will get upheld in appeals.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
