The Cleveland Browns knew what they were getting into when they drafted Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in the first round of the draft this year but the media circus has found it’s way to Loserville, USA and have begun to chip away at the best thing Cleveland football has had going for it since the team returned back in 1999.
Despite being just 21-years old, Manziel is already a rock star NFL star and he hasn’t even taken a snap in the league yet. His first preseason game is still weeks away, but the anticipation is already rising about how big a star he could be. There’s a stigma about Manziel though, as Johnny Football likes to party and the media loves to talk about it as if to almost try and siphon some of the fun.
Manziel isn’t fazed though, telling SportsCenter that he has a right to party — because he’s 21-years old.
"I don't think there's anything wrong with me going out and having a night life… I'm 21 years old." – Johnny Manziel #LIVEonSC

He’s not wrong, as Manziel has long been blasted for just being a kid when their are NFL players out there who have done drugs, beat their wives and even killed people. Manziel has done none of those things, but he’s also 21-years old, which gives the media as much a right to blast him as he has the right to have fun.
