I think the NCAA will get someone to talk, whether they want to or not. The brokers have a paper trail for sure. They are under the impression that if they cooperate with the NCAA, Johnny will be done.

Yeah, but how are they going to get him to talk? Like how they did with the Miami investigation? Lol... idk, I just hate the ncaa and think their rules are stupid and self-serving. But, you're likely right.

If Manziel didn't demand payment in cash only, then he doesn't deserve to play football this year anyway.

I'm definitely not saying it's going to be pretty.  The infractions committee is full of less than moral characters.  They will get their answers if they want them.

 

I can imagine Manziel did demand cash only.

Keep in mind, many said the same stuff about Cam... Look at him now.

As I keep saying, he's only 20... we all did really stupid stuff at that age.

That being said, I didn't read the article, but I'm wondering how the NCAA can prove it if 1) those involved don't talk to them or don't talk details st least and 2) if he was paid in cash. Good luck proving it then.

 

The sports broker has already stated that he paid him....probably enough proof right there.

Putting on my tin foil hat, but my immediate thoughts were some booster from a SEC West team would definitely push the autograph broker to offer Johnny $$$. Now why would that ever admit that they paid an athlete? What athlete would work with this broker again? You know he will rat and records video of the autographing. A&M comes out of nowhere and beats Bama and couldn't hold on against Florida and got worked by LSU. The loss could have prevented Bama from repeating. How much money is that worth. A few million at least.

 

But Johnny is still an idiot. It's all about him. He should have known better.

This Johnny Football crap is about as annoying as the The Golden Calf of Bristol crap

They make millions off the guy and now want to take him to the woodshed for trying to make pennies. The NCAA is a criminal organization.

abusing alcohol or drinking like every other college student?


There's a difference between youthful indiscretion and utter stupidity.

I've known people who did dumb things when they were young, but learned from them and grew out of them.

I've also known guys who were straight up idiots who never grew up and never learned a friggin' thing. Dumbasses like Greg Frye aren't unique. Some guys are just stupid.

Right now, I think Manziel falls under Option B. And from what I've seen of hi dad, he comes by it honest.

Heard on the AM dial this morning that the brokers were butt hurt when Johnny's Mom trademarked "Johnny Football" and Ebay purged everyone who had that in the description.

 

Question: Will be brokers be banned from NCAA campuses and events since they admit to paying athletes?

so he suffers from utter stupidity? i haven't followed his story all that closely, but what exactly has he done to make you think that?

Making enough of an ass of himself that he was asked to leave Manning's Qb camp was a good start,

 

The latest stuff fits in as well.

 

I think he's an idiot.
