Johnny Manziel starting his CFL career as a backup
Johnny Manziel will get in a game for the first time in Canada this week, but he’ll be coming off the bench as a backup as the Canadian Football League preseason kicks off.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats coach June Jones says last year’s starter, Jeremiah Masoli, absolutely remains the starter both for the preseason opener on Friday and for the regular season opener on June 16.
Masoli is going to play until I feel good about it, Jones said of the starters’ playing time in the preseason game. And then the rest of the game will be whatever we decide – 15 plays each, or whatever.
If they and others find themselves resenting Belichick’s ways and questioning the effectiveness of his methods and his message, coach and players could be on a collision course for a level of dysfunction that they may not be able to overcome.
Williams seemed to acknowledge he was in no condition to drive, and he insisted that he wasn’t the one who crashed the Lamborghini.
That’s my $325,000 car that I paid for, he said. I know I can’t drive a car.
Williams claimed that Wright called him and told him his Lamborghini was crashed, but when police asked Williams where his phone was, Williams said that it was in the car. When police asked Williams how his phone could be in the car when he had just said that Wright was in the car and called Williams to tell him about the crash, Williams said, I’m not trying to lie to you. I swear to God I would not try to lie to you.
What Williams told police contradicts the statement he released after he was arrested. Williams said nothing about Wright in his statement, and instead indicated that he had been driving, saying, The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him. I got his insurance information and my neighbor picked me up when my car wouldn’t drive.
TMZ has photos of the crash scene that also contradict Williams’ lawyer’s claim that Terrance did not hit a light pole and there was no light pole even near the vehicle. The crash scene photos show a downed light pole next to Williams’ car.
