But he's far from the first college player built up by the media even before he was broken down after breaking down himself even before playing in the NFL. And the build-up by the likes of ESPN is always more when the player is from the Power 4 conferences (the Big 12 does not count any more in my opinion) they feature for college football such as especially the B1G Ten, the SEC, and the ACC.


don't disagree but the league needs to broaden it's reach at home and in the US and when they can get a big name they probably should sign him. Wouldn't more people watch ESPN if Manziel was playing? There would be league increases in attendance, TSN viewership and sponsorships with him than without him.


That certainly didn't really work with Ochochino and Michael Sam. :oops:
More gossip was created south of the border than hype for our League


The way Sam was introduced was such a farce, this guy just wants to play football and pop held the most ridiculous presser to announce his signing.

So Hamilton releases the neg list today and Manziel is on it. Then the TiCat General Manager states that he would be a star in the CFL and the CFL web site carries a story about it.

Hmmmm. So you think more ppull in Canada would attend games and watch on tv just cuz Johnny Manziel signs with a CFL team? I don't know one way or the other but I strongly suspect it would have little to no impact.

Manziel is a spoiled rich kid with zero pedigree in his chosen field yet you think Canadians would support him and pay money because of him? WAIT!!!!!! Considering who we have as our PM I think you just may be right about this.

Sponsorships? I'm trying to think of which companies would be interested in sponsoring the CFL just cuz Johnny Manziel has signed a contract with one of the teams. Not saying it can't, won't or couldn't happen, I'm just struggling with trying to think who might want to pay money just cuz of him.

For the record if he signs with a team in the CFL then all the power to him. I will await the results and pass judgement then. I mean only an idiot would resort to name calling and personal insults based on a guy wanting to try to extend or continue his football career.

This "Johnny fockball" dude put on a disguise to go to Vegas, so he could get his freak on, and his employer the Cleveland Browns wouldn't know about it! Johnny Manziel did this after claiming he was going clean and would stop partying. He made that promise many times... :roll:

http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/john ... lam-010516

Now as everyone knows, Johnny has a big heart. The biggest! Alcoholism is serious, and alcoholics should be helped and encouraged. But, when an alcoholic is a lying manipulative sack of shid, the last thing you do is give him a 4th, 5th and 6th chance.

But, since Johnny woManziel is now on the Ticats negotiation list, Johnny says OH YEAH sign him Ticats! :rockin: Sign Manziel now! He will be great for the Ticats! :D

At least one market would see its attendance skyrocket through the roof for a game that featured Manziel. It's actually very close to Hamilton :wink:

Regarding sponsorships, remember there's LOTS of porno companies out there. :twisted: :cowboy: 8)

Personally I could care less if Manziel etc catches more viewers down south. What I do know is that I would love to see how he would do up here and whether or not it helps him out. Kaepernick too.

Come north!

Your probably right but Hamilton especially or the CFL usually do a April fools joke with something .

I get a kick out of how all you Tiger-Cat fans think you've found the new messiah in Manziel to lead you out of the wilderness and back into the playoffs...... typical.....
