Clark: 'This isn't college any more' caused Manziel middle finger
Ryan Clark says the Redskins saying 'This isn't college any more' set off Johnny Manziel and caused him to give the Washington sideline the finger.
It would still be fun to know why Manziel did that, outside of his "words were exchanged" comment after the game. Redskins safety Ryan Clark appeared on Mike & Mike Tuesday morning and claimed to know.
"I can tell you what the statement was that set him off. The statement was … This isn’t college any more and these people are faster than you are," Clark said. "He didn’t like it. That was me cleaning up the statement but that’s pretty close to what it was."
Huh. Kind of expected more than that to be honest.
Like, Johnny Football is passionate, sure. And he has swagger and flair and gusto and all those things.
But if someone talking smack about the NFL not being college -- which is, by the way, the actual reality of the situation! -- causes you to fire the bird their way, what are you gonna do when people start talking about your family and your mom and your girlfriend or wife.
Don't wanna go full #HotSportsTake here or anything, but the lack of composure and awareness is pretty apparent.
