Report: Johnny Manziel Gets Booted From Manning Camp

johnny-manziel-holds-ball-smilesToday is the last day for the Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, Louisiana and one player who reportedly won’t be there is Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.  According to a report at Yardbarker.com, Manziel was booted from the camp by Archie Manning after showing up late Saturday afternoon.

 

Our source, who wishes to remain anonymous because of his connection to the camp, gave us the scoop after Manziel showed up tardy Saturday afternoon after being out on the town Friday night. The Texas A&M star reportedly enjoyed himself a little too much Friday night and rolled back into the camp at Nicholls State University some time around noon Saturday before getting the boot.

 

Manziel was supposed to participate in the “Air It Out” competition along with other top collegiate passers Saturday evening. He didn’t. Camp officials told local media that Manziel “is sick” and was no longer at the camp. But our source claims he was kicked out at the behest of Manning paterfamilias Archie.

 

Manziel was a roommate of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron at the camp. The two were spotted at a restaurant together Thursday night along with Eli and Peyton Manning.

Update: ESPN’s Chris Mortenson says reports about why Manziel left the camp are not accurate.  Camp spokesman releases statement.

“Johnny Manziel did participate in some activities in the 2013 Manning Passing Academy as a college counselor/coach. After missing and being late for practice assignments, Johnny explained that he had been feeling ill. Consequently, we agreed that it was in everyone’s best interest for him to go home a day early.”

Deadspin also has some updates on what they have heard.

Update II: Back at the original source, Rumors & Rants is sticking by their story.

Since our original report we have talked to several other sources who were in attendance at the camp and they have confirmed that Manziel definitely was not sick despite what was reported to local media

I have always liked this web site because it is very objective. However, leaving this headline and story up is everything but objective. Not one official from the camp or Manziel has substantiated what this headline states. In fact, all of the officials have said otherwise. This is not the kind of reporting I expect or have seen from Mr. SEC in the past. The article should be taken down until the circumstances change. Mr.SEC is better than this!

Easiest prediction for the coming fall; Texas A&M is definitely going to backslide....

I do have a question for the MrSEC staff.  I love reading your site on a daily basis, but, how is this article any different than what you railed against regarding Les Miles back on March 3, 2013 ( http://mrsec.com/2013/03/miles-from-accurate-when-a-rumor-is-more-than-just-a-rumor/ )?  Yes, I know the subject matter is different, but, the outcome is not.  I'm not saying you are trying to hurt Manziel's character, but, this type of report, from an anonymous source no less, before all the facts are in, is the same type of thing.  Correct me if I'm wrong on this and point out my flaws.

I think Kevin Sumlin needs to sit this entitled little prima donna down and have a lengthy heart-to-heart; something along the lines of what was discussed last season which paved the way for Manziel to even play for A&M.

@lutherelmo And, you base this on....  Who are the teams you expect A&M to lose to this upcoming season?

@dcd7 How exactly has Manziel acted like a "prmia donna"?  What has Manziel done wrong?  I just read what Peyton Manning said about this and read what the Manning Camp said.  So, you are taking the word of an "anonymous source" over what the Mannings are saying?  Petyon even said Eli took flak for leaving early several years ago.  I think there is a lot of jealousy towards Manziel.  Do I wish he would stay off Twitter?  Of course, but, I'm not a 20 year old in college either.  Was I ticked at the Kampus Kops at A&M when I was there? Absolutely.  Did I want to get out to B/CS?  Yep.  All this hatred and so-called advice people are giving to Manziel really is a bunch of sour grapes.  Until Manziel is jumping unsuspecting individuals and beating the crap outta them, burglarized someone, doing drugs, getting a DUI, seeing an agent, cheating in school, shooting someone, committing some sex crime, etc, I'm not really gonna worry about what he does.  Except to the extent others bad-mouth him, and, yes, calling him a "little prima donna" qualifies.  So, what exactly has he done that makes him a "prima donna"?
