Deion Sanders: People won’t accept Johnny Football because he has ghetto tendencies

deionsanders.jpgNFL Hall of Famer was a guest on The Tom Joyner Morning Show and has some interesting things to say about former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, since it seems like people either love or hate him.

Black Sports Online has the quotes from the interview.

SYBIL WILKES: So before you go, Deion, what do you think about all of this talk about Roland’s boy, Johnny Football, Johnny Manzel in all of the conversation about him?

DEION SANDERS: Oh, please. I love Johnny Football. See, the reason people won’t accept Johnny Football is because Johnny Football has ghetto tendencies. I love Johnny Football.

TOM JOYNER: He’s got ghetto tendencies?

ROLAND MARTIN: He’s got ghetto tendencies? What are ghetto tendencies, Prime Time?

DEION SANDERS: 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.

ROLAND MARTIN: So he was a white Prime Time coming out of college.

DEION SANDERS: Thank you. And I love him. (Laughter) I love him. They had the music playing when he came in. Put his whole equipment up, who go out there all do your pro day with all your equipment on? (Laughter) That’s some hula stuff, I love Johnny Football.

That was a pretty ignorant thing for Sanders to say.

Sanders actually responded to BSO’s tweet and claimed he never said Manziel has “ghetto tendencies.”
