Uber Driver Sues Jameis

September 19th, 2018

It’s the story that won’t go away — for the quarterback who is about to return.

What a freakin’ mess.

Suspended Jameis Winston is being sued by the former Uber driver in Arizona who claims America’s Quarterback touched her crotch without permission back in March 2016.

You know the story, and now her full side of the story is public in a civil suit filed in Arizona (link here). You can read it all in that link. There’s nothing much that is new.

Brutal timing for Jameis, and for Bucs fans, and for Team Glazer.

Will Jameis make this go away? Because that’s what civil suits are all about.

    Hate this is in the headlines and never seems to go away. What a mess, but I guess we knew it was part of the package.

  2. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Did the statute of limitations expire on this situation???

  3. 813bucboi Says:

    in 5months this issue will be 3years old…..lol…she waits until now to sue…..why not after it became public?…..why not in the offseason?…..

    this is a freakin witch hunt!!!!!!……

    #TUNNELVISION!!!!!…GO BUCS!!!!!!

  4. Jim Says:

    The assumption going in is we end up with a settlement out of court for an undisclosed amount and a non-disclosure agreement, just as we’ve seen before. Or something surprising might happen. Either way, the Glazers won’t be pleased…

  5. AlteredEgo Says:

    When did this happen?

  6. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This may be dismissed

  7. 813bucboi Says:

    1988

    I think it expires in a few days……aint that convenient…..

    #TUNNELVISION!!!!!…GO BUCS!!!!!!

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Winston’s lawyer convinced him to extend the statute to Sept 20.

    Rightfully, Winston fired him.

  9. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Bucboi, there’s some money-grubbin’ BS going on in Arizona….Geez!!! 😖😫😩

  10. Buc believer Says:

    OH SHE IS NOT IN IT FOR THE MONEY!!!! Said every talking head and bleeding heart out there. Yeah what do you think now?? Just another gold digger. If she does get cash the b…tch will burn thru it in a month. Probably on Pal Mal cigarettes and cheap booze and whatever drug of choice cabbies err Uber drivers are taking now. Stay strong Jameis!!

  11. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Winston has no choice but to just pay her the 75k to drop it. NFL will suspend him more games otherwise. They’ve neutered him.

    Question, originally, did she not claim he felt her up in the drive thru?

    If so, the lawyer said she googled his name while he was in the restaurant getting his order. She also claimed she did not know who he was until later, and yet the lawyers statement contradicts that.

    To me, this proves she is a liar. Problem is, the NFL stripped Winston of the right to face his accuser in court by threatening to ban him in the suspension statement.

  12. mizzle Says:

    SOOOO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT. IN HER ORIGINAL STATEMENT SHE SAID THAT SHE IS NOT DOING THIS FOR MONEY. NOW SHE IS COMING OUT TRYING TO SUE HIM!? THIS IS WHY GIRLS LOSE CREDIBILITY IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS. ALSO THIS IS THE SAME LAWYER THAT WAS REPRESENTING KINSMAN AND LOST. THIS ALL SOUNDS LIKE A PILE OF HORSE CRAP TO ME

  13. Red86 Says:

    The reason, I read somewhere else, is because she didn’t like his apology also didn’t admit any wrong doing. She is trolling his for money. Especially after accepting the apology earlier.

  14. Buc believer Says:

    She is not doing it for the money!!! Screamed every Jameis hater!!! What do you say now? “Kate” will be broke in a month after spending it all on Pal Mal cigarettes and mad dog and whatever else drug of choice this gold digging cabbie errr Uber driver does. Stay strong Jameis!!

  15. Joe Says:

    When did this happen?

    March 2016.

  16. Trench War Says:

    He should’ve been a little more contrite in his apology statement then this probably would’ve gone away.

  17. Trench War Says:

    maybe ..but who really knows?

  18. Robert Says:

    WTF – wow. Can’t believe this. This team doesn’t need this $hit right now!!

  19. Trevor in Orlando Says:

    It certainly does feel like a cash grab from a woman who originally said she wasn’t interested in collecting damages. She (or her legal) let the NFL do the leg work and issue the statement that they came to conclusion he acted in an inappropriate manner and ammunition in her case. THEN, when it would have made sense to immediately turnaround and try to collect damages, she waits until the statute of limitations expires which coincidentally is 1 week before he was scheduled to return to the team. She’s using every last bit of leverage she can to squeeze some money out of him.

    My suggestion to Jameis’ legal team, is to make a public offer to pay for any treatment to date, plus 1 more year’s worth (subject to her attending, his team receiving the bill, and the charges not to exceed 120% of 12 months of previous charges) AND offer 75K to a women’s crisis center/charity of Kate’s choice. I think that would show Jameis is taking this seriously, and showing sympathy for the situation he said he put her in.

    If this were offered, I don’t think she would take it, as it doesn’t increase her own account balance.

  20. Bucsfanman Says:

    We’re Buc fans so it’s hard for us to stomach this kind of garbage. Lets not get it twisted though. He wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place if he didn’t put HIMSELF there.
    Don’t try to lump me in with the “haters”! It’s just what we know. He didn’t get suspended for nothing, OK.
    Settle it and be done!

  21. AlteredEgo Says:

    So do the same standards apply to the Supreme Court guy….love the http://www.com

  22. Robert Says:

    damn, this is as bad as Terry Crews (the big african american dude) suing his agent for touching him….

    SMH

  23. DBS Says:

    The media should now be going after her the same way they went after Jameis. It was over and done now she comes out with this BS?

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    And the HITS..just keep on comin for Mr Winston. My guess is Jameis will see some action this year. It will be in the courts though rather than on the field. I’m hungry. Crablegs anybody?

  25. Defense Rules Says:

    @Joe … “Brutal timing for Jameis, and for Bucs fans, and for Team Glazer.” Oh man, what a ‘hassle’. And to think, none of us saw this coming. Ya right.

  26. DB55 Says:

    I heard he offered to pay her $130k to sign a gag order. No wait wrong guy my bad.

  27. JimmyJack Says:

    She could have filed this lawsuit at any time, right?

    It just happens to come out just before his NFL suspension is over? I don’t care for the timing of this. Somebody behind the scenes is a real dirtbag.

  28. Kobe Faker Says:

    “I guess Im starting QB vs Chicago”

    Conor Mcgregor

  29. Robert Says:

    just read it all..

    DAAAUUUUUUUMMMMM!

  30. Not there yet Says:

    I’m a woman defender and i saw this coming when this all became public so not a surprise but the timing is, I thought she was waiting for his big payday that he may not get now.

    It is what it is and regardless at some point you just have to stop defending bad judgement and he had to live with the consequences. Doesn’t matter whether he did it or not or whether she is a gold digger, a quarterback cannot be in these situations then call himself the leader of a team. If he has to sit the bench it’s his fault, if doesn’t get his 20 mil it’s his fault. He ruined his own image and if he plays like a hall of famer the rest of his career he will still be branded for this

    Geez can’t consider yourself the franchise of you can’t even promote said franchise and he can’t get any endorsement deals anytime soon

  31. pelbuc Says:

    Whether it’s a money grab is irrelevant. The problem is they can and will use the findings of the NFL investigation to bolster their case and up the settlement figure. If JW doesn’t settle then the discovery process could reveal more salacious and embarrassing information. A good lawyer would know that even before filing suit. JW has put himself and the Bucs organization in a tough spot and a constant drip of bad PR. Let’s not forget JW is a whisker away from being banned from the NFL in the event of another misstep. And yet the Bucs are betting the house on this guy. Unbelievable!

  32. The Buc Realist Says:

    When does a “hassle” become a “saga”????????????

  33. 813bucboi Says:

    Winston needs to pay her ASPA before his suspension is over……no need to let this linger on because if he does, the first question that will be asked will be about this situation…..

    now instead of the media talking about why AB missed practice and trade rumors surrounding him and the bell situation, they’ll be focused on this Monday night…..

    #TUNNELVISION!!!!!…GO BUCS!!!!!!

  34. ndog Says:

    I love how the NFL suspended him and stated the reason was her story was consistent and credible. Please tell me now how she is consistent and credible when she said all along was this was not about money yet here she is asking for money. I am less convinced than ever that anything actually happened that night.

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, the pig never reports anything to any authority, where filing a false claim and result in you going to jail, she lets that time period go buy, and now sues in a civil court where people file fake claims all the time knowing that she’ll just get a payoff, or at worst for her, in a civil court, where there’s very little burden of proof of guilt, she can just cry and will get millions of dollars given to her even though it’s nothing but he said/she said. This is what the #MeToo movement is all about, lazy pigs looking for a free payday.

  36. Rashad Says:

    Is this not some bull ? But I do find the timing interesting

  37. patrickbucs Says:

    So let’s deflect and refer to some other possible accusations nationally? What does that matter here? Why is that Winston is always “the guy” that some woman is falsely accusing him of sexual misconduct? Nothing ever from other young Qb’s like Watson, Mahomes, Darnold, Jackson, Mayfield, etc. for example.

    He’s already been suspended for this. The NFL cannot again, it’s called Double Jeopardy. The only thing this will now effect is his wallet again.

    Let’s see how he bounces back this time.

  38. 813bucboi Says:

    folks keep saying, “if he settles”…..why wouldn’t he settle? and settle as quick as possible like in last night when news broke?…..

    imo, Winston’s legal team is failing him…..they should’ve deposited the cash as soon as the bank opened this morning……that’s right cash not a check….Winston aint got time to wait 3days for the check to clear….

    then todays news would’ve been, Winston paid uber driver, case closed…..

    @jimmyjack, I agree……its some behind the scenes dirtybag sh!t going on…..

    #TUNNELVISION!!!!!…GO BUCS!!!!!!

  39. unbelievable Says:

    I mean we have a president and new SC nominee accused of far worse, and everyone just turns their head the other way.

    Why do we hold an athlete to higher standards than SC judges and presidential candidates?

    #priorities

    amiright?

  40. James Walker Says:

    Two years later and she chose to sue him 5 days before his return. Hmmmm. I wonder why?

  41. Etzel Says:

    She sued him because she didn’t like his apology.. which was vague… as not to admit guilt… because he knew she was gonna sue him… Hmmmm

  42. unbelievable Says:

    Just read the entire legal document.

    This reeks of a butt-hurt-attorney trying to get revenge, and a planned cash grab.

    So much of it conflicts with all of their initial statements and claims when this news came out last year.

  43. Pickgrin Says:

    “Brutal timing for Jameis, and for Bucs fans, and for Team Glazer”

    More like well calculated timing designed to create maximum negative perception.

    Considering Kate hired the cleatchaser’s lawyer – was there ever any doubt this was always about maximum embarrassment and some money considering she didn’t feel “violated” enough initially to involve law enforcement at a time when an actual and relevant investigation to uncover the facts could have taken place?

    Just think of how the news of this “incident” ever even came to public light in the 1st place… TMZ style! A #metoo minor groping accusation (hand brush of privates over clothes) on buzzfeed of all places – without a shred of evidence to back it up (which is exactly why LEOs were not involved in the 1st place).

  44. Bucsfanman Says:

    Having read the suit, there is simply no way around this.

    unbelievable- Different rules for different folks! Feel free to read between the lines too!

  45. Robert Says:

    Strong hate on her

    He never apologized to her!

    The timing is perfect if she’s pissed with the intent to teach him a lesson!

  46. i like gunslingers Says:

    pay the woman let her get on with her life jameis so you can move forward with yours, have her sign a non disclosure clause for the amount she settles for, and move on from this, if she goes on TV, writes a book, talk show appearances, so forth and so on this will kill what is left of your tarnished reputation, so make sure the clause bans such activities, probably cost you more but will be cheaper in the end, i would make his happen asap. good luck bro

  47. ben Says:

    Winston deserves all the bad press as he brought it on himself as he has cost himself,school and the bucs BIG issues.

  48. DaPostman Says:

    Remember kids, when they say it’s not about the money, it’s always about the money. Didn’t the first one sue Winston and when he counter sued her she dropped the case and FSU paid her to go away or settled her suit with them? Calling Ray Donovan. Winston doesn’t need lawyers he needs fixers. Lol

  49. TJ Says:

    “Defendant Winston became belligerent with some male pedestrians that were near the same club – screaming and swearing obsenities and racial epithets out the window…”
    “Mr. Winston was clearly in a poor mood. Though he did not appear to be verydid not appear to be very intoxicated, as he was not slurring his words and did not smell like alcohol, his hostility made Plaintiff concerned that this could be a bad ride.”
    “…[in the drivethru] while waiting for the food to arrive and without any warning, Defendant Winston leaned toward Plaintiff and placed his fingers between her legs and pressed them firmly against her vagina over her yoga pants. Concerned about Defendant Winston’s earlier hostility, Plaintiff was very worried about reacting in a manner that could incite Defendant Winston again.”

    If she wasn’t hard up for $$, she sure wouldn’t be working for Uber. You bet she’s after the dough. I could care less. Just more fodder for the craporate media.

  51. Rod Munch Says:

    If you don’t go to the police and only file in a civil court on a criminal charge, you’re just a fake news piece of garbage who has no credibility and you’re looking for free money since you know it’s going to get settled. Women like this have no right to be believed, none.

  57. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    The money ay FSU basically was paid to the same lawyer…the accuser gets some. I can write this set up. The accuser contacts her boyfriend ” The woman did not file a report with police but had discussed it with her boyfriend. She did report the incident to Uber the next day. Uber contacted Winston, who told the ride-share service that there were other passengers in the vehicle that night.”
    So simple called boyfriend told him a completely inebriated football player (JW) was just put in my car…ching ching…
    After making the plan reported to her job the next day! Then found Clune (the other accuser’s lawyer)with the help of the NFL don’t prosecute…because it was going to be pay day after the suspension. BOOM!
    Because Jameis will need to make it go away…he hasn’t played or payed for 3 weeks

  58. NPR SageBoy Says:

    Jameis has a history of this stuff. Why did Bucs draft him? Glazer’s don’t need this now

  59. TampaTown Says:

    So….it was all about the money. Whatever. Write a check make her finally go away. The timing makes her lose all credibility IMO.

  60. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “I am glad to see the NFL discipline Jameis Winston. I do appreciate his apology…” – Kate

    Apparently she didn’t.

    She took a payoff from the NFL to drop it, then is suing anyway. She’s a dirty rotten low down scum sucking liar.

  61. bucsfanforlife Says:

    Just like everything these days, It’s all about the Benjamins. A sad state of affairs on all counts.

  62. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    A lawful lawsuit or lawfully orchestrated extortion!

    Extortion by private person refers to the act by which a person receives or demands money or anything of value from someone in response to a threat against disclosing information, or as a consideration for not disclosing information and in violation of the law.

  63. dont assume Says:

    All about the money. If i’m a professional athlete I wouldn’t want to be alone with anyone.

  64. jmarkbuc Says:

    Wonder why he agreed to extend the Statute of Limitations?

  65. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    You guys do realize that this could be a money grab AND, she could be telling the truth, right? It’s possible that she would have let it go, until she found out he was rich, with a past. These are not mutually exclusive. Just because she’s “out for the money” now, doesn’t mean that Winston isn’t guilty. With all that said, I personally don’t give a $hit about a crotch grab. My family has gone through a rape trial. I’d give my life if the worst thing that happened to my family was a friggin crotch grab. But, hey, what do I know?, I’ve just lived it, unfortunately.

  66. ATrain Says:

    Question

    Why is the question asked why did she wait so long which implies Winston is not guilty

    But the same people Don’t ask why did Winston ask his friend to lie for him which would imply guilt

  67. Godeep66 Says:

    Fitz over Ditz

  68. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Jameis is a tall black football player…but he is not an angry black man…his playfulness gets him in trouble sometime…so now this Uber driver know him in a few scary moments better than most🤔

    I have seen Jameis at FSU being called rapist… etc …and not react…
    So was Jameis actually screaming at Darby and the other dude…for whatever reason and black man to black man may call each other names that would be inappropiate called out by another race…

    So this is all an unfortunate ploy…I pray he never allow himself to be victimized again!
    Stick close to Breion, baby, family and selective friends…shame.

  69. Kalind Says:

    NO!!! Jameis, listen. Take her to court. Make her prove beyond a preponderance of the evidence that you did what she alleges. Knowing hay she cannot, I’d say you shout from the mountain top that you did nothing wrong. WHEN the court dismisses the case, or you are found not guilty in a civil procedure…I’d turn around and ask Roger for your mon y back and a formal apology from the league and Roger himself.

    You’re welcome for the free advice

  70. Kalind Says:

    Why settle when you have a gimme case in front of you? Bury her in court, then counter sue. Literally, Jameis is holding all the cards here.

  71. jmarkbuc Says:

    Kalind

    NO!!! Jameis, listen. Take her to court. Make her prove beyond a preponderance of the evidence that you did what she alleges. Knowing hay she cannot, I’d say you shout from the mountain top that you did nothing wrong.
    ————————–
    The time for that would’ve been when it first happened. That ship has sailed.

  72. jmarkbuc Says:

    “She is hot!, You should sit in the front seat Jameis”

    That was the spark that set this whole thing off….

    Jameis has idiots for friends.

  73. Greg Says:

    It will be his second check for a second incident. No way he deserves to be our quarterback. Fitz shows that other QBs with these weapons can do the job. Save 22 million and move on with someone were not ashamed to have on a banner and someone that doesnt polarize the fan base.

  74. jmarkbuc Says:

    Not JW related…

    I wonder what it would take to get D Johnson from the Cards? 1 and a 2, and RoJo

    1 and a 3?

    That guy in our backfield and it wouldn’t matter who the QB is

    One can dream

  75. Jay Says:

    She wants to teach him a lesson by not getting law enforcement involved but asking him for money to go away.

  76. Jay Says:

    This is ridiculous.

  77. passthebuc Says:

    This is not a suit for money. if it were 500.000, it would be a suit for money. This to get his attention. she said that his apology was less then sincere

  78. ATrain Says:

    Haha

    No answer For Jamies Crew

    I understand liking a player even thinking he is great

    But can’t be truthful and not ask why does a man run out and get his friend to LIE!!!!

    DB 55. Love you bring in politics Bet you are the same guy who would say you hate an economy that is actually growing

  79. jmarkbuc Says:

    pass

    I tend to agree…He should have given a sincere apology. He should have notified the team and given it when the investigation first started, could’ve ended the whole thing.

    If’s and But’s….

  80. BucdUp Says:

    The report sounds biased to me… In stead of “an apology” by jameis the report states a “a hollow apology” by jameis was given… Just one of many examples.

  81. mark2001 Says:

    I don’t want to bore you guys, but in a civil case the legal standard is a preponderance of the evidence, not beyond a reasonable doubt as in a criminal case. With that lower civil law standard, she might win the case. If I were Jameis, I think I’d likely settle and get it all over with.

  82. jmarkbuc Says:

    Although she has asked for coverage of “future therapy.”

    But what she really wants is him to stand up and take it, a little SJW-ing.

    Pretty Smart, or good lawyering.. She doesn’t stand to make much on $75k. Lawyer will take most of that.

  83. jmarkbuc Says:

    2001,

    Oh he’s gonna settle. Even if Goodell writes the check. Not one word of this on NFL.com, not that I’ve seen.

    Still can’t figure out why he agreed to extend SoL, though..

  84. mark2001 Says:

    jmark.. probably about a third of it.

  85. jmarkbuc Says:

    BucdUp,

    She said at the time, about JW’s apology “It needed Work”

  86. jmarkbuc Says:

    So she clears 50K?

    If it was money, she would swing for the fences, no?

  87. Lamarcus Says:

    So there is another sexual battery case he is fight?? This year??

  88. jmarkbuc Says:

    Same One, rearing it’s ugly head

  89. Jim Says:

    Consider this, boys and girls: The low figure of 75K suggests its not about the money. What if she refuses an out of court settlement? What if she refuses a non disclosure agreement? What if she drags out all the dirty laundry the NFL has??

  90. jmarkbuc Says:

    Jim

    Good point.

    If she wants to, she can get herself paid on all the news shows, and raise some hell…indefinitely. And she would stand to make a lot more money, with less lawyer cut.

    We better start praying there are two seasons worth of Fitzmagic left.

  91. BigHogHaynes Says:

    I expected this to happen …he’s young enough to make through the fire. And when he gets back he will shut the mouths of all haters …Fitz is the hot hand now but when bad things happen next man up! Famous Jameis will be that man … Man I know this guy is doing film study on all teams after this weeks game …I know there will be no rust whenever he gets back…if I were the Glazers he would have gotten a one game team suspension at the beginning of the season with a zero tolerance for being such an ass the rest of his time as a BUC!!! No worries JW your number will be called again ….maybe halftime of that CHICAGO BEAR GAME!!!

  92. Dwe Says:

    Where are the damages. What a joke

  93. Lamarcus Says:

    There is something about that in the court doc

    Also in March 2018 defendant is waiting depositiom for another case

    Page 3 top page. Who is that?

  94. Da Buc Guy Says:

    C’mon people! Why is it that I see comments like “Let’s see how good he plays” so that he then gets a free pass like Roth”assault”berger??? This was a “Groping”. So the Uber driver probably thought reporting it to her employer was enough. She may have thought that Uber would report to law enforcement if warranted. If she was really after the money the lawsuit would be for close to a million, not less than $100k. Did people forget that “Shameis” tried to blame other passengers at first then conveniently admitted he was too drunk to remember when his buddies refused to take the blame??? I think the trust is gone. He is not on stadium murals anymore for a reason. I don’t think the “Groperback” deserves $20mil per year. I’ve heard an ole saying/verse before. “Of whom much is given, much is required”. Shameis has already gotten a 2nd chance. I am a Gator fan but decided early on to give him another chance when he was drafted. I just don’t see how he deserves 4 and 5 chances to deserve the big money people are talking about paying him. What happens when the next Shameis incident happens? 1-year suspension or worse?

  95. ATrain Says:

    Crickets

    Lamarcus,

    Surely that’s a date error..maybe referring to Kinsman?

    If not, oh Sh!t

    Somebody plz help. On top of page 3. First sentence. Am I tripping it says he is fighting another case in Florida March 2018

    Plz help me understand that one

  98. Lamarcus Says:

    Jmark

    Hopefully that’s an error. Because it sounds like he is fighting a sexual battery in FL

    If this is surprising to you, you’re an idiot.

    JW should settle and end this fiasco . He brought it on himself . Take your medicine and straighten up JW . To much to lose if you don’t grow up quick !

  101. Rod Munch Says:

    Kalind – it is civil court, there is very little burden of proof – it’s simple reasonable doubt. So the woman goes up and testifies and starts crying and she wins automatically – that’s how the system works in civil court. There’s a reason authorities were never involved, because filing fake police reports get you in a lot of trouble. Everyone knows this never goes to trial, this will be settled out of court since Jameis can’t risk millions at a trial when literally all she has to do is tear up and she wins.

    During WW2 the US Army put rapists to death, and that’s what should happen to real rapists, and that’s why claims of rape and sexual assault are big deals, and it’s why women who lie, who yell rape to get an easy payday, those women should face the same punishment as those they accused would have been faced when it’s proven they were lying.

    In any case I don’t believe this woman for a min – she’s just another #MeToo slob looking for handout.

  102. Lamarcus Says:

    Yeah man. Jw just pay and move on. Leave this town. Go to NY or New England and ball out. Tampa fans hate this guy for idk but if I was him and actually had any awareness he should opt to play elsewhere. Let Tampa try another 20 Trent dilfers to find the next franchise guy. Hope his next agent gets with him about moving cities

    Joel

    Chill out

    I don’t think any true Buc fan wanted this to turn out like it has, whether you like Jameis or not. We wanted him to be a superstar. Whether or not he is, or ever was, is highly debatable.

    Having said that, No it wouldn’t be all that surprising, and that’s a damn shame.

    Lamarcus

    It has to be an error.. No way it wouldn’t have been everywhere…

    Maybe JW has to leave to be great …Que Sera Sera

    It’s a Bucs Life..Wreak Havoc

    Shoulda seen this coming when she hired that lawyer the gold digger Kinsman had. Now it makes sense why she did it and waited until now. If she never filed criminal charges she shouldn’t be able to file civil lawsuit, if she had then no problem. I feel bad for Jameis because it’s all piling on him higher and higher but I don’t feel sorry for him because he put this on himself, and unfortunately for him this might be the public opinion straw that breaks the Glazers patient backs. Plus Fitzy playing lights out isn’t helping his cause either. Oh well too bad so sad. Be happy haters your public hatred might be rewarded soon.

  106. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis emerged at FSU as a superstar and the Illuminati didn’t want him to be. ITS A CONSPIRACY!!! #FreeJameis

  107. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    would any of you whole heartedly apologize for something you don’t remember doing? If you were drunk??? One things for sure I wouldn’t let her accuse me of something I DIDN’T DO!!! All that money and Jameis didn’t bury her in court??? Tells me he wasn’t absolutely sure he didn’t do it. Still this chick is deplorable. Gives women who have really been assaulted a bad name.

  108. gp Says:

    Winston’s best option in re the lawsuit is to counter sue for his lost income due to her malicious and false accusation
    Said lawsuit should name her lawyer (who obviously sought her out) as co-defendant, he’s got deeper pockets than her anyways
    Her lawyer would have her settle for $20 cash (the going rate, right Kobe?) in a heartbeat

    March 2018? Must be what Walter Football was talking about..misbehaving this Spring?

  110. Duke Says:

    J mark, bonzai,

    “Kate” isn’t seeking 75k. That’s the figure that court sets to determine if the suit is above or below that threshold. In this case, the suit seeks damages in excess of 75k without limits .
    If your beliefs about the nature of case rests upon the victim seeking only 75k then it’s time for a rethink. This suit specifically asked the court to impose no limitations on the total amount the plaintiff is seeking for relief.

    This is a million to multi million dollar’s action. They , the plaintiffs legal representation, is looking for more than 75k. Much more. The thing to consider is that the same legal team representing kate, has already found a dollar figure as a floor to begin this suit. Based on how much winston paid to the last victim . For those of you who don’t know, Winston settled the prIor civil suit with a non disclosed amount . That amount is at the moment the floor for the next series of negotiations to come.

  111. Buc1987 Says:

    Duke…yes 75,000 is a floor for the out court….which is going to come nowhere NEAR millions….

  112. Buc1987 Says:

    Millions for what….she’s not suing him for the actual action…but mental duress and counseling expenses and what not…..where does it say she’s suing for crazy dollars?

    She needs millions for counseling from all this? He has lawyers too….

    The settlement won’t be that high….at all….imo.

  113. TOM EDRINGTON Says:

    Let’s see, the NFL investigated this for what seems like forever and found enough credible circumstance to suspend Jameis for three games…..so it won’t be hard to win a civil suit…..

  114. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    She deserves every penny. Dude still hasnt learned that stupidity has consequences.

  115. Jmarkbuc Says:

    The suit says Winston was at FSU three years..that can’t be right.

  116. Ronteco Says:

    He’s a bum. He was a bum in college and he’s a bum now. You are the franchise QB for an NFL team. How do you put yourself in a position where you need a ride from an Uber driver leaving late from a bar/club? It’s all just bad decision making which he has the same problem on the field….BAD DECISION MAKING.
