    I may not agree with every action JM does, but I dang sure am not going to call the guy a "moron" or "dumb". Climb down off your holier than thou mountain. The guy is a teenager and is going to make mistakes. From all accounts he has great parents that will help him grow and mature into a great man. It is all part of the maturation process. Teenagers are not finished products, they are still learning and growing into who they will become. I for one have not gave up on JM or any other teenager who makes a mistake or two...

    Technically no longer a teenager, but the most recent studies show that the brain doesn't really mature until around 25, not that we all didn't know that...

    No, 18 in Oklahoma on the Indian reservation where he was. As far as where he got the money, his family is wealthy.

    I wish I had someone to tell me to "grow up" when I was his age. Would have saved me a lot of grief!
    Ask me about my vow of silence.

    And would you have listened? I already had family responsibilities at that age. I wish I had had a longer time before I had to grow up, but that wasn't my lot...

    Manziel will be fine. Not sure he will have as much success again, but I think people are making a lot more of this than needs to be made.

    If I'm Manziel or his parents.. I would be very upset at the AD for releasing this story. Keep it in house and not tell the world. Sounds like A&M has more than a vested interest in keeping him out of jail.

    I was also curious as to why this was made public. One logical conclusion was that to do it publicly was the only way they thought they could get his attention, and that's not good...

    Maybe aTm thinks the parents are part of the problem................
