Dumping on Johnny Football

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
