We always knew it was possible that Manziel and his free-wheeling style would fall in the draft and become the story of the first round as we waited to see where he landed. We also always knew that many people would take joy in that development. It turns out that even a company like Dick’s Sporting Goods is taking the chance to enjoy the fall of one of the more polarizing athletes in recent memory.
