Did you see Johnny Manziel played today after his half-game suspension, throwing three touchdown passes before getting pulled for taunting Rice players?
Yes, Johnny Manziel is a douchebag. He’s thin-skinned, reactive and probably a big drinker. He probably did sign autographs for big money. But Johnny Football can indeed, play, and the NCAA and TAM are allowing him to do so. That’s the way it is.
I listened to Mike Greenberg, one of the super douches of all time, say this past week that Manziel was limited; Greenberg insisted Manziel’s not all that good and Aaron Murray is a better pro prospect. BSP has this to say: I’m a better sports talk radio personality than Mike Greenberg, but no one’s saying so. Funny thing about ESPN: They seem to want to get Manziel thrown out of college football, and they are not hiding it very well. I suspect Manziel told ESPN to piss up a rope at some point in time and they decided they are going to do everything they can to tear him down … of course, while using him to pump up their ratings. Greenberg; he’s just so freaking bad, so horrible, so pathetic … he is just one of ESPN’s biggest mouthpieces. Has the guy has ever had a thought that diverged with the network? His Jets homerism is real, but it only makes it to the airwaves because it dovetails nicely with ESPN’s Jetsocalypse we are routinely subjected to.
No other way to say it: Greenberg’s a vage.
As much as I like Colin Cowherd, he’s wrong when he says sports media only talk about teams and players we want to hear about. You really think I want Jets 24/7? Not even Jets fans want Jets 24/7. The Jets suck. The funny thing is, ESPN is HQ’d in Bristol. Their broadcasters think when their neighbors ask about the Jets…because they LIVE near where that team plays…it doesn’t mean the whole world wants to talk Jets. ESPN needs to give their corporate vendettas a rest, and their relentless homerism a break. Their ratings may pull up from their steep decline.
