Johnny Manziel isn’t exactly the most liked guy in the NFL, or in the sports world in general. So, it shouldn’t have been surprising to hear of people wanting him to be sacked at nearly every chance on the field.

Rams vs Browns tonight. If Michael Sam sacks Johnny Football & gives the money sign, drinks are on me. For everyone in the world. Forever.

Fisher made the donation and learned a valuable lesson—don’t put something out in social media that you aren’t ready to back up. Well, that and the internet doesn’t forget.
