Oh, Johnny Football. Truth be told I really don't have a problem with this kind of activity, Manziel is a celebrity and should be able to use his own image however he wishes so long as it doesn't effect his on-the-field football career. That being said, he's a real idiot if this is true. Manziel knows the rules, and isn't from the kind of situation where he should be desperate for any sort of short-term payday. I've been on his side when it comes to most of the 'controversies' he's been involved in this year, but despite my dubious view of the rule itself I won't feel an ounce of sympathy if he's suspended or banned.
The rule on that is stupid yeah, but like you said he knows the rules. Ever since winnin the heisman kid thinks he can do whatever the f*ck he wants.
Kid is a douche but I hope he did it and i hope he gets away with it. NCAA is scum!
