Yet again, Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is in the news for all the wrong reasons. And yet again, it’s due to a heckler.
By Robby Sabo
Can you believe Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has only been in the NFL for one full season?
Yeah, it’s crazy.
Albeit most of his antics came from his college days at Texas A&M, Manziel has already had a career filled life jam-packed into one rookie season.
Now, after Manziel has emerged from rehab (which was a fantastic step), he’s yet again in the news for all the wrong reasons.
While attending the PGA Tour’s Byron Nelson Classic in Irving, Texas, Manziel was consistently being heckled by an 18-year old gentleman.

Via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN:
A friend of Manziel’s told Fowler the fan tried to grab the quarterback and said, “Good luck never starting in NFL,” leading to Manziel throwing the bottle like a football spike.
Fowler also stated that the water bottle wasn’t close to the heckler when spiked, but it didn’t stop the 18-year old from repeatedly trying to get close to Manziel.
No charges will be pressed and Manziel had not been drinking, according to authorities.
Instead of the frustration spike – which it clearly looked to be – Manziel should have befriended this idiot. A few pics with the kid, killing him with kindness would’ve been the way to go.
Think about it.
Make your enemy your friend. Then, once the event is nearing it’s end, you take his girlfriend and his dignity.
Since emerging from rehab, there hasn’t been a more model Brown than Manziel.

This is one guy who’s rooting for Manziel to succeed.
Yes, he sure does have his blowups off the field. But when it comes to that “it factor” that, we as fans, all discuss, nobody displayed that more during his college career than Manziel.
