Skip Bayless says Johnny Manziel is an alcoholic liar
Stephen A: Are you saying Manziel is a liar and an alcoholic? Skip: Yes. WUT

In the pantheon of disgusting and reprehensible things Skip Bayless has said, this one’s right up there. It’s one thing to abhor Johnny Manziel’s partying or a perceived lack of professionalism, but it’s beyond the pale when you say that a 21-year-old rookie quarterback is an “alcoholic” without anything to back that statement up.
It’s an affront not only to Manziel, but to the very serious disease of alcoholism. Trivializing it for a hot take is just the worst. Remember: Bill Simmons was suspended by ESPN for calling Roger Goodell a liar, now Bayless has called a player a liar AND an alcoholic.
