Official Johnny Manziel Thread - participates in Fan Controlled Football: 'Feels like I'm super washed up'


Recommended Posts

Anyone that knows anything about alcoholism or any addiction knows there are relapses. The concerning thing is the domestic stuff. Who knows how serious things got with his gf in that car. Manziel obviously still has a lot of work to do here, but like any addict he will need help.

The concerning thing is that he relapsed and thinks (evidently) that it is no big deal.
Didnt seem like a big deal considering the authorities did not pursue intoxication related charges despite manziel driving.
Any relapse is a big deal.

Having a few drinks is not a big deal, no. The haters, holier than thous, and brainwashed aggro aa minions are the only ones who feel otherwise but all of those groups are clearly driven by an agenda

Yeah, this is very ignorant, unless you mean the agenda is to turn your life around..? Maybe? He was in a rehab for 2 months or something, usually normal drinkers don't go to rehab, actually normal drinkers NEVER go to rehab, not once. Wether he's an alcoholic or not, he will have to decide. But where there is smoke there may be fire, and we're not minions, just experienced.

RIP

His argument is pretty ridiculous, but there's really no reason to bring up Ferguson or the I can't breathe protests in response. Pretty poor taste here guys.

and people were seriously wondering why the Browns were stating Mccown over him? The coaches knew what the deal was from the word go.

How can an NFL franchise be so stupid then to have not "known what the deal was" from the draft?

Wasn't Haslam inspired by the homeless dude's call on the way to the draft?

What could go wrong?

It will be interesting to see how the NFL reacts to this since they are part of the NO MORE campaign against domestic violence.

Staying quiet about it without any investigation into it would seem to go directly against the no more campaign.

I could see the GF being a total beotch and lying about him slamming her head into the glass. I could also see an abused person making the accusation and then recanting because they think the abuser really does love them. Either way I would be shocked if the NFL does not investigate this.

And to whoever inferred that his problem is drinking and not domestic violence, tell that to his GF who had her head slammed against a window (if that is what happened). I am sure she will feel better that it only happened because he has a problem with drinking.

with no arrest and a girlfriend who doesn't want to assist i doubt anything happens

only he kows if he is an alcholic, but the signs are there.

If he does not think he is an alcoholic than the rehab was worthless

if he is an alcoholic a few drinks is a big deal

I think he's a highly over rate dooshbag of a QB, but I want the guy to get his life straight. I don;t like hearing about anyone struggling to wrest control of their life from an addiction. I wish him the best,

i've been hearing rumors around town ever since he got out of rehab that he's had beers here and there, but i've not said anything because he was staying out of trouble.

i'm wondering since nothing was ever stated publicly that the rehab stint was for the cocaine, and Manziel somehow sees the alcohol as a separate issue? nothing to base that on, just wondering out loud.

I am not saying anything happens. But the NFL will be total hypocrites if they do not at least investigate. If it was found out that he abused his girlfriend and they didn't even investigate then their slogan should be changed to "NO MORE (unless it is an NFL player)"

Could be, but wasn't Manziel's dad worried about him being an alcoholic before he entered the league?

yes i believe there was an article out there quoting his dad saying as much.

i'm just trying to figure out a reasonable explanation.

other than the whole rehab thing being a PR move. which doesn't make sense either, based on the length of his stay in rehab.

why not just tell the cop, "No, I was not drinking."

i don't get it.

Honest question can an addict exist soberly in a profession as pressure packed as star NFL QB?

Brett Favre?

Cris Carter.

Stanley Wilson, not so much.

Favre was a great QB, got hurt, then became addicted, then got off. He was addicted to medication relating to his pain. He wasn't an alcohol/drugs abuser from what I recall.

Carter was obviously not a QB. I'm also not sure of his history, I kind of thought he became a great player when he stopped abusing, but maybe I'm wrong on that.

I always speculated it was pain killers ala Favre hence why the arm was an issue in training camp. Someday it will come, hope the kid gets his #### straight but I'm not sure he plays another down for the Browns. I think they would take the bag of magic beans for him right now.

Or: if you can't be with the one you're with without getting physical or dragging each other into addictive, destructive habits you shouldn't be with the one you're with, even if that means taking her to the bank and writing her a check to be rid if her, brohan.

He claims there's a woman to blame.

But he knows, it's his own damn fault

Cowher would cut him? That's funny, I don't recall him cutting Big Ben and I'd argue his indiscretions were far worse than Manziel's.

do tell

What did Big Ben do?

One word, Google

But Big Ben is good at football :shrug:

In the short time they spent with her the cops obviously drew a bead on this Crowley wack job. There is no way they would have allowed these two to leave together if they believed her claim that he 'ht her a couple of times.' Kruger knows what the deal is, and he pretty clearly indicated that this nut case is bad news. I'm no fan of Manziel, but it looks to me like he's getting a raw deal here. Probably found a boiled bunny in a pot when a got home.
