LEAVE JOHNNY ALONE!!!

LEAVE JOHNNY ALONE!!!

Johnny Manziel a.k.a Johnny Football has been the talk of the NCAA since last season’s performance, which led to him becoming the first ever Freshman to win the Heisman. Most of the news about Manziel since then has been worrisome relating to his off the field activities. Since last year it has been public knowledge that Manziel likes to have a good time and will definitely enjoy the sweet life of a college quarterback. Throughout this off season Manziel has been criticized and closely watched by the media waiting to pounce on his next move. Johnny Football has not let us down one beat. He has been photographed, Twitter snapped and even caught napping at the wrong time. It is my opinion that we are watching Johnny Football too close as if his life is a reality show.

Now things have taken a turn for the worst as the NCAA is investigating Manziel for profiting off of signed memorabilia. Jay Bilas from ESPN, who is known for challenging the NCAA’s sanctions and actions taken into improper benefit cases, brought up an interesting point this morning; he said that last week Texas A&M made $20,000 of Manziel by auctioning him off for a day, but they will turn around and punish him for selling a few autographs. Listen, I know he broke the rules and that he should punished accordingly, but it is my belief that the rules should be altered. Let these kids make money, but put a cap on it or something along those lines.

Back to Johnny now. I think we are keeping too close of an eye on a 20 year old kid who is trying to live a normal college life. Yes, many say that he should act responsibly because he is supposed to be a role model, but a 20 year old isn’t necessarily going to think that way. Walk a mile in his shoes before you start telling him how to act, Mark May (College Football Analyst from ESPN). Maybe he should watch what he does a little more closely, but maybe the media should get off his back for one day and stop watching every move he makes or every drink he takes. Let the kid develop on and off the football field and when he makes or doesn’t make the NFL then criticize him and judge him based on his “adult” actions.
