Prime Time opinion
Deion Sanders says he knows why quarterback Johnny Manziel rubs people the wrong way.
See, the reason people wont accept Johnny Football is because Johnny Football has ghetto tendencies, Sanders said on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, yesterday. I love Johnny Football.
When asked, Sanders explained what he meant by ghetto tendencies.
Because he was successful, he made it, and he let you all know he made it, and he was cocky, he was flamboyant, and he let you know, Sanders said.
Roland Martin, an analyst on the show, then said: So he was a white Prime Time coming out of college.
That got a laugh from Sanders, who said: Thank you. And I love him.
