    Here's A Headline You Don't Want to See

    if it's associated with your team. Just imagine the circus accusations if this were the Jets we're talking about


    Browns not worried about Manziel's partying

    BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns aren't worried about Johnny Manziel running out of bounds off the field.
    Or floating on pool rafts.
    After a weekend of partying in Texas, where he was photographed floating on an inflatable swan while drinking champagne in a nightclub pool, Manziel was on the field Tuesday as the Browns opened a mandatory three-day minicamp.
    The team is not making their popular Heisman Trophy-winning rookie quarterback - or starter Brian Hoyer - available to the media this week.
    Manziel has left Cleveland each of the past three weekends, first taking a trip to Las Vegas, then to Los Angeles for a seminar with other rookies and then to his home state, where in addition to having some fun, he got drafted by the San Diego Padres and attended Game 2 of the NBA finals in San Antonio, sitting near Miami's bench while wearing a retro Cavaliers' cap.
    Following practice, Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine said he's not worried about how his young QB spends his free time.
    "I'm not concerned," Pettine said. "I would become concerned if it was something criminal and I would be concerned if it affected his job. There's a lot of our guys, if when they leave here if they were followed around, you'd get some very similar pictures. I don't know about an inflatable swan, but you'd still get some pictures."
    Manziel has said he intends to keep living his life to the fullest, and Pettine doesn't feel the need to monitor the 21-year-old's every move.

    If he was drafted by the Patriots, headline would read:

    "Manziel knows how to kick back and relax between challenging Patriots practices"

    If he had been drafted by the Giants, headline would read:

    "Manziel keeping focus on winning even while he enjoys himself"

    Why do you think the Giants get the benefit of the doubt and the Jets don't?

    More important question: why does a grown man troll a football message board?

    If you can't find any recent examples of media bias/hypocrisy to get riled up over, might as well dream some up in your head and whine about them.

    there is no way manziel isn't named the starter by week 1. how else is Cleveland going to put fans in the seats? now that Gordon is gone for the year, they have Johnny Football and no one else.

    Not a big deal to me ... But anyone who grew up/ lives in NY Metro area knows Local media has had a Giants bias forever

    Also the entire country outside of NE knows National Media has kissed BB & crews b*tt since the long ago days of their *winning*

    Why would you think the color of a player's uniform would determine if partying was a good/bad idea?

    Just because some organizations are run more successfully than others doesn't mean its players are immune to the same potential dangers any other players must beware of (see Hernandez, Aaron or Burress, Plaxico if you need further illustration) . . .

    I can see Pettine's position. Drinking champagne on Saturday night isn't the worst thing a football player could do, unless he decides to shoot somebody afterwards because they ****ed up his swan.

    And here some idiots in the NY press worry about Decker supporting his wife instead of showing up for a rather meaningless OTA training session.

    ASG is an absolute horrible troll. Everything he does is pure shlt. And the poor bastard literally lives on this board nonstop.

    That divisional playoff game in which we spanked the fvck out of them and embarrassed them so bad in front of the world that they all booed their great gay Brady and Bellicheat off the field.

    Thanks, Jets.
