That is why Johnny tools around College Station in a bright red 2012 Camaro. I don't think Daddy Manziel has a regular day job. Seeing as how they are originally from Tyler, TX I would posit that it is good old fashioned East Texas oil money.

    Kerr should have done some Googling before making comments like that.
    Kerr was just using" Johnny Courtside" ® as a medium to attack the SEC

    BTW - who else loves the dry wit and humor of "Czar" Fratello?

    Re: Johnny Manziel Sits Courtside for a Dallas Mavericks Game

    I need everyone here to remember this when discussing a lot of athletes here and especially over on the recruiting board.

    Contrary to popular belief, not every athlete grew up destitute walking around bare foot with holes in their one shirt that they shared with their 14 siblings.

    So if and when we ever miss out on a recruit and you happen to see the recruit driving a car nicer than yours, don't assume that there's foul play (kinda like some people did with Robert Marve. I won't name names). Many parents save money for their kids to go to college. And if a full paid scholarship comes along, I don't see why you wouldn't want to do with that money what you darn well please.

    And not every situation is a "Blindside" story, where an athlete needs "a helping hand".

    While there is certainly a huge gap between the haves and have-nots in this country, there are a lot of people in between who do ok for themselves and are responsible enough to save money for their and their kids' futures.

    I like Kerr but that was dumb. Those tickets aren't that expensive.

    Idiot Steve Kerr attacks Johnny Manziel over court-side seats - Dallas Mavericks game

    I thought he was trying to be witty. It was silly, but I don't personally feel like he was being malicious....just jabbing

    Oh, I guess Kerr never got anything on the side at Zona. They don't do that in the Pac-10.

    Honestly I don't care if some moneybags slid Johnny Football a free seat - and no one else should either.

    I don't know how many folks have priced NBA tickets, but they are ridiculously expensive. Especially given the fact the Heat were in town, the seats he had could easily have been $1,500.

    I'm not saying Kerr was right, but my eyes got wide when I saw Johnny Football in those seats. At the least, it didn't look good. Who knows, though? Maybe he actually did buy them for himself as a birthday present.

    To his father, those seats are pocket change. Should he slink around in sack cloth, despite the wealth of his family, in order not to give the wrong impression? I suppose GMac shouldn't have driven an expensive SUV or not treated the team to steak dinners after the team won, just because his family had money and he needed to hide the fact? This whole thing is ridiculous...
