Alternatively you could just recognise that Manziel is probably a ****head.
â€¦and that's all he'll have with the Bruins, unfortunately.
I agree that people should be alllowed to live their life, but if you don't see what everyone else sees (that this kid is heading for a crash and burn) I guess that's you're prerogative.
Don't see to many shots of Brady that would lead you to believe he's a party animal. If you want to be the best, you should try to conduct yourself like the best. He's got washed up by 27 written all over him.
The shame of it will be that he has some talent and he'll waste it.
If the Patriots and Browns play one another in the next couple of years, who do you think wins the battle of wits? Belichick or Manziel?
And our evidence for that is.....?
He's still just a kid and has time to clean up his act, but that's up to him.
If he can keep his off-field antics to what his teammates and the average fan will tolerate (remember how exercised some folks out here were when Gronk was photographed partying after the most recent SB loss?), then all will be forgiven if he delivers between the lines.
Brady went out with prominent alcoholic Tara Reid back in the day, for what that's worth.
I'm sure that there are nights where Brady isn't studying the playbook or working out. What does it mather what the player does during that time as long as it's legal? All players have free weekends and free nights where they don't work out. What does it mather if they party or watch a movie during that time?
That's no big deal. Every young, unattached stud in the country with some cache and some cash dated the Rent-A-Floozalebrity back then.
Answering the reporters' questions is the easy part (some version of "I'm just not going to talk about it" repeated a couple hundred times until they get tired of hearing it).
The hard part is going to be playing in that Division and being part of a cohesive locker room if he keeps doing what it looks like he was doing.
OTOH, he'd get along with Josh Gordon famously.
I don't care who the player is, if there is a photo of them in a bathroom stall getting ready to stick a rolled up bill up their nose then I am going to have serious concerns about their future as a pro athlete. What player's do or do not decide to do is really their business and it is their future that is on the line, as well as all that goes with it. That's not to say they don't have a responsibility to their team's and to those signing their check but as long as they are prepared and produce there shouldn't be much to say about their offtime unless it involves criminal behavior.
if you really think there is still any semblance of journalistic integrity either in reporting on the NFL or in general, then I have a very nice bridge in downtown New York to sell you...a little old and in need of some repair, but it does help connect Manhattan to Brooklyn quite effectively
too late...Manchild has already been slotted...pigeonholed as a party boy. It only gets worse from here on out. Every simp with a CSB diploma will be staking out every second of his life with mics and cameras rolling. He may be "just a kid" but "kids" do stupid shee-it all the time and when HE does it will go viral nationally.
Snorting coke in bathroom stalls and posing for pics while drunk holding a magnum of champagnee is the fuel that has set this inferno to raging. He can't unring the bell. What will rehabilitate his image is a breakout rookie season. In CLEVELAND. You can get pretty long odds on THAT bet.
Quality begets quality:
Cleveland Browns owner fined $92 million in truck stop probe
What's even crazier, is that was part of a "deal" where they wouldn't prosecute.
Mr. Haslam could have been looking at a solid 10-20 year sentence and actually lucked out.
Besides, wasn't that photo from TMZ?
If Hoyer is healthy, I doubt he's even going to play this year.
I think that if Hoyer is healthy he will play this year.
I think the irony is that the straight identity he was being steamrolled into in Texas, has become, thru his rebellion, and even steeper, more inescapable identity--the cool frat rat, or however you want to name it.
