Michael Sam Money Sign

A Twitter user named Fisher King has learned the hard way not to make bets on social media. King, who uses the Twitter handle @SquareKnight, thought he was having a bit of fun when he posted a tweet about the preseason matchup between Michael Sam’s St. Louis Rams and Johnny Manziel’s Cleveland Browns.

Michael Sam, of course, made history this year as the first openly gay player drafted into the NFL. And Johnny Manziel, also known as Johnny Football, is arguably the most polarizing player in the league. The rookie quarterback is known for his exciting style of play during games and his partying antics off the field. He specifically made headlines for flashing the money sign after being drafted by the Browns in May.

With both players among the reserves for their respective teams, it was inevitable the two would be on the field together at the same time Saturday night. So Fisher King decided to post the below wager on Twitter for the whole world to see.

Fisher King probably thought he was in the clear by including the money sign part of his bet, as Sam does not seem like the type of guy who would call out opponents in public. But King was sadly mistaken, as the below video shows.

Fisher King quickly realized that his Twitter bet about Johnny Manziel and Michael Sam was a terrible mistake.

Fisher King then tried to use his Twitter predicting powers for a different cause besides getting Johnny Manziel sacked by Michael Sam.

And then King decided to pay up his Johnny Manziel Twitter bet, but in a much more noble way.

Michael Sam, for his part, seemed willing to take King up on this offer.

But this was apparently not enough to satisfy Twitter users who were counting on Fisher King to buy them drinks. King thus clarified Sunday morning that his Johnny Manziel/Michael Sam bet was just a joke.

As CBS Sports noted, Fisher King was not the only person to make a wager about Michael Sam sacking Johnny Manziel. But we doubt this fellow will make good on his promise, either.
