my home team

So a story from 2 years ago that everybody pretty much acknowledged at the time is a reason to not bring this guy in because a picture surfaced?

I can name a few people that don't seem like team guys... one starting with the letters BB.
Self centered, erratic behaviour , oh gawd please dont sign him potential cancer in locker room ?

Former Ti-Cat leading receiver , Arland Bruce called.

Left long strongly worded message.
And before Arland got on the field here, he had a "chat" with Bob O'Billovich to make sure there was a clear understanding.

And then AB da Turd was a great teammate and role model.  Until his true nature emerged like it always does...

Guess what Johnny?  Another QB has arrived in TiCat-land! Show me the Moniz! Give us  another ultimatum!!!!!

Not sure if that's true or not (can't have too many QBs), but it could make for a very interesting training camp. And apparently, Jones thinks so too.

But if we sign Manziel, we will have 1 QB too many!  Keep him outa here!

Johnny Manziel gives first interview in two years: ‘I was self-medicating with alcohol’

“I was self-medicating with alcohol. That’s what I thought was making me happy, helping me get out that desperation to the point of where I felt that I had some sense of happiness. But at the end of the day, when you wake up the next day after a night like that, or after going on a trip like that, and you wake up the next day and that’s all gone and that liquid courage and that sense of euphoria that’s over you is all gone and you’re left staring at the ceiling by yourself and you’re back in that depression and back in that hole, that dark hole of sitting in a room by yourself being super depressed, thinking about all the mistakes you’ve made in your life. What did that get me? What did that get me except out of the NFL? Where did that get me, disgraced?”

Ticats VP Kent Austin on Manziel interview: ‘He’s gone through a lot, he’s come a long way’
Posted on February 12, 2018 by Drew Edwards// 6 Comments
Ticats vice-president of football operations Kent Austin says he’s watched Johnny Manziel’s interview with Good Morning America twice.
Manziel told the American TV show that he’s taking medication to deal with bipolar disorder and dealing with his mental issues are his top priority. Austin said he liked what he saw.
“It’s like anybody you talk about: until you get to know that individual, get to walk in his shoes, get to understand what makes him tick, those types of things, it’s hard to really form a proper judgement call if you will,” Austin said. “He’s gone through a lot, he’s come a long way. The interview was a good interview.”
But Austin said that the Ticats are looking for Manziel to show he’s ready for the mental and physical challenges of professional football.

“The most important thing we’ve always said here, is we’re looking for patterns of behaviour with our players. A consistent pattern of behaviour – with any player—is more indicative of somebody’s character and what matters to them,” Austin said. “So he’s had a good stretch here and he’s doing well, he’s working hard and doing all the right things right now.
Austin said he deals primarily with Manziel’s agent Erik Burkhardt.
I don’t talk to Johnny much directly. I talk more with Burkhardt whom I talk to quite a bit,” Austin said. “We talked yesterday, we’ll talk several times this week I’m sure. We have a very open and direct line of communication with each other.Most of our information is delivered to us from Erik.”


“Talked Yesterday “
“Talk several times this week”
Looks like the Ticats are not giving up boyzzzzzzz!?

You are dense.   And by the way, I said nothing about Banks, that's someone else's quote.  

YOU are the one who said he would sell tickets, I have been saying he won't:

Quote from: Ticatsfan25 on Wed Jan 31 2018 21:34:10 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)

Manziel without a doubt will sell tickets.  And jerseys.  And other merch.  If he slaps a Ticat logo on his COMEBACKSZN gear the Ticats are laughing.  But that doesnt really matter compared to the revenue driven from a spike in viewership, especially in the US.  Pro leagues' major rev source is from TV, let 'em all watch on TV.  That's what really matters.  If this new exposure generates new interest in the league (esp down south...) then it's a massive win for the CFL.

But, if he isn't any good or falls off wagon, things I suspect would revert back to the norm quickly.

You are simply guessing that he will do all of the above because of his number of twitter followers.  Quoting how many followers he has is not "giving numbers, facts and precedent", it is guessing.  If you actually think this is being "clear headed with your thoughts and conclusions", you have bigger problems.  As for your online streaming argument, it would be a re-broadcast of TSN's feed, and they own the rights.  Without a renegotiated deal, there will be no other online streaming than that which already happens through TSN.  So that's out the window too.
Sorry to circle back on this, but it appears our friend and Ticat saviour JFF just went and launched a SPRING LEAGUE merchandise line on his COMEBACKSZN site - jersey, tshirt, and hat.  Note, this is a "league" he is participating in for a total of 2 weeks.  Appears he's also got his Twitter account promoting it to his followers as well as people who signed up to his email list.

Weird....I thought when I specifically called this exact thing out I was told I was "dense" with "bigger problems"...among other things...

Go Ticats!

 8)  That link is not working !!

     But to be honest, I would bet that at this point in time that Manziel  is indeed in game shape !!

"Game changer" is a horrible cliche. But the game just changed today, folks.

of course

Since they both had scouts at Manziel's Texas A&M pro day workout today, clearly Montreal and the Riders are very interested in Manziel.  And I think both of those teams would be more than willing to trade for Manziel's rights.

But if Manziel decides to sign in the CFL, you'd have to think that the Ticats would sign him, rather than trade his rights...especially after all of the recon/time they have invested in discussions with Manziel's agent to date.

An open competition between Masoli, Vernon Adams and Manziel would bring out the best in all three QB's, and be fun to watch.

Trading Manziel is and always has been Plan B not A for Jones and Austin
