The former Texas A&M Football star may have found a home with Fan-Controlled Football
After bouncing around to more leagues than most fans knew existed, Manziel, as stated, looked like he was about to retire. But out of nowhere in 2021, it was announced that he would be playing for a league called Fan Controlled Football.
The initial reaction to this was something along the lines of: What in the world is Fan Controlled Football? The league was relatively unknown at the time of Manziel’s signing, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have support.
Fan Controlled Football has a handful of high-profile team owners including Richard Sherman, Marshawn Lynch, Mike Tyson, Quavo, and most importantly, Bob Menery. Menery is important because he is a friend of Manziel, and convinced the former Aggie Football star to join the league.
The league is comprised of 7-on-7 games on a 50-yard field with a unique set of rules. Fans are able to decide anything about the league, including rule changes, roster changes, and anything related to football.
It’s not taken as seriously as any other league, which is the perfect fit for Johnny Football. As an example, the teams play rock-paper-scissors instead of doing a coin toss at the start of games.
He remains on the Zappers in this league, and despite not playing in a relevant league, he should continue to bring plenty of entertainment to the football world. The 2021 FCF season has come to an end, but he remains a part of the Zappers.
Hopefully, his tenure in the FCF lasts longer than any other league that he has been a part of and we’ll continue to watch Johnny Football do his thing out on the field.
