ESPN May Have Caught Johnny Football Red-Handed
Added by Jacque Medina on September 15, 2013.
Johnny Manziel is messin’ with Texas, and the NCAA too, evidently. ESPN recently obtained a picture of the Heisman trophy winner signing photos of himself (and baseballs too?) in the company of South Florida autograph broker Drew Tieman.
Manziel and Tieman
The photo has been proven legitimate, and was taken in Tieman’s apartment in Fort Lauderdale. ESPN also reports that Tieman spent more than $10,000 to have the autographs authenticated.
Manziel has had his fair share of run-ins with the NCAA authorities, but this is the visual proof icing on the cake of unconfirmed speculations, and hollow “investigations” done by the NCAA.
The kid knows what he’s doing, and I think it’ll take more than a half-game suspension and a slap on the wrist to make him sorry for it.
