Relax people .... can't you see that John is (pardon the pun here) gigging you? He surely knows, as well as everyone else who looks at this objectively, that people are trying to make mountains out of mole hills when it comes to Manziel. A tweet about leaving College Station due to a perceived unjustified parking ticket. Leaving a camp as a volunteer counselor early. Getting tossed from a frat party at a rival school. A taunting call when he let his emotions get the best of him.
Sumlin as right when he said "people have got to talk about something." But really, does this reflect jack squat on Manziel as a player or a person? No way ... they reflect about what I would expect from a 20 year old college student-athlete. Basically, Manziel is pretty typical. Would I prefer it if he were super mature at 20 like a Jordan Spieth type who has the poise to shoot a 62 in a PGA tournament? Yes, but people like Spieth are one in a billion. He's 20 years old with the maturity level of a 40 year old. No, Manziel is pretty typical IMO. People need to give Manziel some slack. Its not as if he cheated or robbed someone. Unbelievable that he has been subjected to this type of character assassination for such comparatively minor things.
