If there is going to be any fan interest in the fan-controlled league, Manziel will need to continue making these kinds of plays.
The new league began this weekend with all games streamed live on Twitch.
“The more I heard about what this was going to be, the more I felt it was going to be something that was just very fun,” Manziel told ESPN.com.
“It’s going to be very fan-oriented and something I could get behind without being extremely, extremely, extremely serious, the way that my football career has been in the past.”
The FCF features 7-on-7 full-contact games on a 50-yard field. So get ready, there will be plenty of action, plenty of scoring, and another opportunity for Johnny Football to shine.
