Clardy: Don’t Call Johnny Manziel A Victim
PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – The college football world was rocked by allegations that Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel was paid to sign memorabilia. Troy Clardy thinks that while Manziel can be called many things, Johnny Football, Heisman Trophy winner), one thing he cannot be called is a victim. Clardy explains why on Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan.
While some have used Manziel’s story as a means to point out the NCAA’s ills, Clardy refuses to have any sympathy for Manziel. He points to Manziel’s immature actions, bad decisions, and his well-to-do family background. “If this is all true,” Clardy says, “Johnny Manziel isn’t selling autographs because he needs some grocery money. He’s not doing it because he needs to send some cash home to his family so they can eat. He’s doing it because he’s greedy. I’ll never have sympathy for the greedy.”
Clardy also compares Manziel to another young quarterback who was also a Texas high school football star from a well-to-do family, and notes how different things turned out for him.
