    I never liked Stevie Asssmith and I never will.
    If Johnny football was black Steven would be singing a different tone as usual, saying "Com'on give the poor brother a chance, its not his fault he was in this situation."
    He always takes the side of the "poor black athletes no matter what they have done.
    Michael Vick, RG 3 just to name a few. RG is so over rated.
    If I stepped on anyone's toes to bad.

    I truly find it funny how Stephen A. Smith always starts with, "I like him a lot.....I"ve talked to him on several occasions this and that...BUT". Yeap, there's that, "But" and all the negative trash talk begins. "I love Kapaenick, I truly respected him...BUT". Same goes for Michael Irvin, Dak, Ray Lewis. You can sugar coated anyway you wanted it Stephen but where I come from, it's called "kissing their ass before you spit right on their face". Nice one Stephen. Love you man, BUT often, you're just too cruel man.

    Stephen A, not only are you fun to watch as the Quintessential black sports commentator--especially when you get wound up about something--you are also the wisest of all sports commentators! AND I tend to agree with you most times and especially with regards to bipolar symptoms. We hope to understand errant behavior by giving it a name but the human psyche is too complex for that. Some people just cannot stop being obnoxious and self destructive no matter what label you slap on them.

    That sounds like a correct diagnosis for Johnny football he was just a guy that bought into his persona and when he got into trouble because of it all of a sudden he is bipolar. Bull he is just a punk who got what he deserved.

    Doubt he's really bipolar. Probably normal mood swings of an overgrown teenager. Usually people who are not fully developed or who are living fraudulent lives develop "bipolar disorder." These mood swings are just a sign that you need to grow up and sort yourself out.

  • Chris Stephens

    I can’t stand Stephan, but this is the one time I’ll agree with him.... Johnny took all the blessings he had for granted. He was hired to be a team caption and he’s not discipled enough or care enough about the team he’s leading. He just kept rubbing his fingers together wanting that paycheck. And he seems shocked that his world fell apart. Like Stephan said, I have no sympathy for someone who is talking, only because he’s after something. Let alone, trying to get back what he threw away to begin with.

    I agree with Stephen A, too many people want to blame their issue on some "disorder" be it ADHD, bi-polar, etc etc. The dude just behaved like a shithead, let his ego get to him, pretty typical for a young person suddenly thrust into fame/money. but please don't blame it on some medical issue, bullshit excuse.

    Most of these comments are sadly ignorant. FOOTBALL: Manziel was unfortunately drafted into a "totally dysfunctional" franchise with a shit system, not to mention a shit owner. We never had the chance to see what Manziel could do in a well organized system. Imagine Manziel in a Belichick, Carroll or Marrone system. At 4.5 speed, scrambling ability and an accurate arm? He would excel big time! HIS PERSONALITY: In high school and college Manziel was an arrogant prick that partied too much, and he was allowed to get away with pretty much anything because he won! His substance abuse and arrogant attitude began way before he was drafted into the NFL. Now ad a bipolar disorder (which doctors diagnosed him to have) and WA LA! A perfect recipe for self destruction. I commend Manziel for eating the crow and trying to turn his life and football career around! He deserves a second chance in the NFL. He would most likely sign for minimum salary too! I hope he gets that chance.

    We can't really fault people for what they do. No one controls who they are in reality because everything we are comes from external sources such as genetics or environment. This perspective breeds empathy even as we hold people accountable for their actions. I'm bringing this up because of what Stephen A. brought up with bipolar disorder. He thinks it's just an excuse (and he's right it is an "excuse/explanation"). BUT so what? No matter what you believe about his specific diagnosis, you have to admit something was wrong with Manziel in terms of being able to control himself.

    Ha hell yeah Stephen A. I totally agree with you! It's all good when your a punk ass college kid, thinking your bigger than everyone & the world around you.... THEN, wanna be "bi-polar" the minute you are suddenly a nobody in this world. No worries Steven A.... I have no issue saying this BUT Manziel is full of shit and making it up to receive sympathy for all his wrong doings. You had one chance to survive Cleveland where he had no Tom Brady to out shine. All he had to do in Cleveland is maintain mediocrity and work on winning a few games. That is not very difficult and he couldn't even be mediocre and behave himself. I am a huge Texas A&M fan and always will but Fuck that dude. He blew it all on his own. Guys like myself that have to bust my ass my whole life to feed my family and never get even 1% the chance to have the opportunities he pissed away makes me feel absolutely not sorry for him. People and Humans need to start fucking learning shit in life. Seriously

      He's better than ANY backup in the league. And He's beaten the greatest QB'S in the league. So don't even waste your time debating. WAR IS EVIL if he were protesting WAR id support him even more! And if you disagree with that then you need to get your marbles back.

    Who cares? He squandered a once in a lifetime opportunity, and he doesn't need the money. Poor, sad, rich boy, born with a gift, that thousands of guys are busting there ass every day but never get to. Waste of an NFL position, someone else didn't get a chance to play because he took a spot and threw it away. Bi-polar is a bullshit excuse, Lawerence Taylor was bi-polar, get the fuck outta here.

    FYI folks,Manic depression,needed a kinder,gentler face,and they invented the name, bi-polar.started seeing a shrink in the 7th grade,I'm 68 now,led a full life so far,meaningful,served my country, became a master carpenter in the hall,but not a day goes by,that I don't feel self destructive.the fact is,most manics,thrive in competitive sports,the arts,trades,creativity.It's a way of transcending our thoughts,by having to concentrate on that or rather those skills. I used to hate going home after work,but I have taken up wood carving,and it became bearable.Hope this sheds a little light on this affliction.
