I introduced you guys to Nikki Woods on Wednesday morning. She’s a Texas A&M grad who is pissed off at Busted Coverage and the media world’s treatment of Johnny Manziel. Let me remind you guys what she originally wrote because there were followup emails traded overnight.
I just read your latest article on Johnny Manziel and the letter from the history major at Texas A&M. I have to say…………well said and concur!!!!
I am an Aggie alum and have to agree with everything Matthew said. I receive all the news feed regarding my beloved Aggie Football Team. I can’t open anything, as of the last year or so, that isn’t NEGATIVE NEGATIVE on this fine young adult. For goodness sake, LEAVE THE MAN ALONE!! He is extremely talented and his heart is in the right place. He has proven himself way beyond many athletes and just because he enjoys life, not caring who is around….BIG FREAKING DEAL!!
Most of the blogs I have read seem to be jealousy from amateur spectators that find fullfilment in tearing someone apart. They should spend more time on his positive qualities, rather than critiquing someone they do not know!!! If he was a poor African-American who made it “big” in the world of sports, the blogs and coverage would be much different, I assure you!!
So to all you jealous haters who write a bunch negative crap about someone they don’t know, step away from the microscope!!!……GET A FN LIFE!!!
Class of ’92
That was the first email.
My big question: What do you mean if he was black it would be different? What would be different?
It would be a “rags to riches” story. …like Bo Jackson. Instead many haters talk about him being a spoiled brat, etc…because his parents have money. Does anyone know if he is/ was spoiled? ? NO!! I have read way too many articles, blogs etc…where they discuss that aspect of his character.
So I brought up the 2012 NY Times article where Johnny’s dad admitted to buying his son a Camaro for staying out of trouble. Some might say that is being spoiled. Not Nikki. She got pissed off.
So….Mr Joe, how does THAT make you spoiled and a privileged individual? My older brother and I both graduated from A@M….were promised diamonds in our Aggie ring, for good grades. Does that make us spoiled? Hardly. You get my point, but are obviously being one sided and have read or listened to BULLSHIT and asinine opinions.
And this could go on for days and days and days.
Do you want to bitch about Johnny Manziel coverage. I won’t take your quotes out of context because I’ll post your email word for word.
