Confirming he is indeed the worst, Skip Bayless went on First Take this morning and called Johnny Manziel an alcoholic and a liar. Manziel denied reports that he threw a party over the weekend that caused him to be late to team activities. However, he has even admitted himself that he needs to grow up in a hurry if his NFL career is to amount to anything.
But it’s a looooooooooooooong way to go from “parties too much and needs to grow up” to “is an alcoholic.” Of course, in Bayless’ cyborg mind, a wild accusation that someone is an alcoholic is worth it when you’ve got a cable television debate to win.
I’m sure Skip Bayless has a lot of evidence and medical knowledge to make that kind of declaration. And I’m sure ESPN is going to stand by him and his remarks 100%.
By the way, only one of those final two sentences is sarcastic.
