Default Manziel Pleads Guilty

The hits just keep on coming...

Manziel pleads guilty to misdemeanor charge from 2012 fight

Quote:
According to statements given to police, Manziel and a friend were walking home on June 29, 2012 when the friend directed a racial slur at a 47-year-old man. The man confronted the friend, and the incident escalated until Manziel and the man exchanged punches.

As a result of his ensuing arrest, Manziel was initially suspended for the entire 2012 season and planned a transfer. But a letter from new Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin helped overturn the suspension, paving the way for Manziel's historic Heisman-winning campaign as a freshman.

Manziel's guilty plea comes just days after his surprising (and much-discussed) early departure from the Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana.

Manziel hasn't been linked to anything remotely similar to football since he won the Hypeman Trophy.

I see a huge sophomore slump in his future but guessing I'm not alone in that regard....this guy reeks sense of entitlement & with a season of tape and the best defensive coordinators in the land, methinks the SEC won't be taken by surprise but "Johnny Football" again this year.

Media has built him up, they'll just as happily tear him down for ratings if he does digress on the field as many expect. He doesn't seem the type to learn from mistakes as long as there aren't consequences for his actions.

Doubtful. We've know about the fight and the lifted punishment by Sumlin, that's old news.

People probably weren't aware he got in a fight with a 47 year old man after his friend (cough -- my ass -- cough) was yelling racial slurs at the guy. More bad PR for the Heisman Trophy winner.

Hey, Eric, know it's only his second year, but it looks like Johnny's ahead of the curve. Perhaps you should tell wifey to schedule one of her seminars so she can straighten the boy out. Just a thought, but it's her call. LOL.

This isn't really anything new. We all knew about his arrest last year, it's just finally coming up. So I don't really think anything is going to happen.

Makes sense. I wasn't necessarily responding to you for posting it, a lot of the comments were just calling for action and waiting to see what would be done and I was just throwing it out there that we probably shouldn't expect anything.

Hyman is powerless if the board wants Johnny. It is safe to say Johnny will play.

I don't think everyone should hate on the kid because...he is a kid. Yeah he comes off as a prick but isn't every teenage male? Yeah he's made bad choices but most kids do. The media is looking for anything good or bad to say about anyone popular to get headlines and more times than not its bad (think Hollywood). In all I have no problem with him doing what he does to make him look like an ass to others, in the end everyone has to grow up, its unfortunate he or any of these college stars are forced to grow up under the microscope of criticizing eyes. Just like a former player of ours (#5) ill save my judgment until he's proved he's a grown man by his own standard and not the standard the mass applies.

"According to statements given to police, Manziel and a friend were walking home on June 29, 2012 when the friend directed a racial slur at a 47-year-old man. The man confronted the friend, and the incident escalated until Manziel and the man exchanged punches."

So Manziel's friend directs a racial slur at a (presumably) African American guy. The guy objects, and Manziel hits the African American guy? How is this okay? I don't care who he is, he shouldn't be leading a team.

Manziel is old enough to enlist in the military. He's old enough to get married. He's old enough to father a child. He should be more mature than this.

I'm really tired of the "he's just a kid" refrain. I've seen 30 year old men who are still excused in the same way - he's still young. Some people never grow up.
