Remember JOHNNY MANZIEL, the former Cleveland Browns quarterback who was a HUGE BUST in the NFL because he was more interested in partying than, you know, football?
Well, he's spent the last year playing for two different teams in the Canadian Football League. But yesterday, he was released by the Montreal Alouettes, and the CFL promptly BANNED him altogether
It's unclear what he did . . . all anyone is saying is that he violated undisclosed conditions in his contract, and then wouldn't accept an undisclosed punishment. (So, Canada is really keeping it close to the vest on this one.)
Johnny went on Twitter and thanked his Canadian fans, and said he'll look for opportunities to play football again in the U.S. Obviously, he isn't coming back to the NFL . . . so he'll probably try to get in with the AAF or the new XFL.
For what it's worth, the CFL wasn't exactly THRILLED to have Johnny in the first place. He spent a whole year trying to get into the league, and when he was finally approved, the CFL made it clear they weren't messing around . . .
Quote, "[Manziel] must continue to meet a number of conditions in order to remain eligible. These conditions, while extensive and exacting, remain confidential."
