This is GREAT news.

OUR league and OUR team now have a spotlight directly on it.

Johnny announcing his signing has media (both social and MSM) buzzing.

I'm confident he can live up to the hype and expect him to perform well once he's ready.

Welcome to the Hammer, Johnny Football!!!

Waiting for all the haters now.....

Maas and Printers jerseys apparently going to be more prominent in Hamilton than JM2.  Or someone told me.

Maybe, the Cats will trade him to Montreal and get Bomben back.

This is AWESOME. If some dump their tickets, there will be lots to pick up the slack.

JM or JM - just win baby; if your wearing the black and gold, I will be cheering for you!

The Cats sold out. It's all about the cash and hype that Manziel will bring in instead of having integrity.

I firmly believe that the Cats would rather have a 6-12 season with Manziel than a 12-6 season with Masoli since Manziel will fill up the team's coffers much more quickly.

What does integrity have to do with this?

As for your second comment... This ownership and management team want to put the best product possible on the field. They think Johnny Manziel being here makes us better.

Integrity has everything to do with it. They have a current rising star QB who has been paying his dues now for several years and is a quality person. Instead they are more fixated on a scandalous hype-machine. It's all about the business.

hendy77

Are you ignoring the two criminal convictions of that "quality person"?

Look, I can get past a person's bad past behaviour. I believe in second and even third chances. People change. Some people try to change and can't quite do it. Some change and go on to greater things. But they deserve that chance.

The league is not filled with choir boys.

Krisiun, bringing in quality players to compete for a position on a team is a good thing.  Manziel has shown down south he is a quality player, if he has more or less fixed his personal issues then where is the integrity problem or even if he hasn't fully fixed these but is working on these?  Everybody has some personal problems.

The team is fixated on winning a Grey Cup, that's all I see. And that is good.
