Johnny Fu*king Football sells

Johnny Manziel's first CFL game, as the starting quarterback for the Montreal Alouettes against the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats last Friday, attracted an average audience of 406,000 on ESPN2,  making it the most-watched game for ESPN since it started showing CFL games back in 1980

 The previous record was a Saskatchewan-Edmonton game in June 2013 that drew an average of 347,000 viewers on ESPN2. The Manziel game drew a combined average audience of 730,000 on TSN and RDS. It did not represent a season high in Canada as several games have had more than 900,000 viewers this year.Manziel, a former Heisman Trophy winner, threw four interceptions as the last-place Alouettes lost 50-11 to Hamilton.

Does this mean more Johnny Football on TV? I'd say he better play better or next time n will want to tune in.
