Jameis Watch: Investigating Jameis

April 22nd, 2015

jameis 0108Crab-legs-stealing, BB-gun-shooting, obscenity-hollering, Heisman-Trophy-winning, former national champion James Winston, the pride of Florida State University, continues to look like a much better quarterback prospect than Mike Glennon and Josh McCown.

It’s Joe’s daily nugget on the Jameis Watch, celebrating the best quarterback to wear No. 5 ever in the state of Florida.

Joe chortled when he saw the freakout by way, way, way too many otherwise intelligent people. Just because the woman who claimed Jameis Winston got too handsy with her one night filed a civil suit against Winston, these folks claimed he was suddenly too hot of a property to draft.

Only those with a rank agenda or living under a rock the past few months didn’t see the suit coming. The Bucs, who may have been equally amused at the overblown reaction, stated flatly this would not change their draft plans in any way shape or form.

For those who can’t imagine why this wouldn’t change the plans of the Bucs, Joe will let a practicing attorney explain. That attorney is the creator, curator and overall guru of Pro Football Talk, the great Mike Florio, in this NBC Sports video.

    wasnt this posted yesterday – lame

  3. Eric Says:

    All is correct.

    Additionally, the Glazer’s are some of the most litigious people on the planet. They just settled a suit vs. the cheerleaders. When the big money estate was being divided years ago the siblings all sued each other. Countless suits when they owned the mobile home parks and the malls and the stadium deal and whatnot.

    Law suits are one thing the Glazers are well in tune with. They know this one is brought because it has settlement value, and likely will be.

    Also, if the Glazers gave much of a darn about public opinion they would have never bought Manu.

    Definitely not a thin skinned group. They get their outrageous tv money whether Winston gets sued or not.

    Winston is perfect ….
    mariota is horrible….

  5. BuccaneEric Says:

    At least if we draft Jameis the Bucs will be getting the most National coverage they’ve gotten in 12 years.

  6. charactermatters Says:

    Got too handsy?? Really? Is that some kind of joke?

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    As much as I want to be interested in all this, I’m not. The draft can’t come soon enough. We are all just stating the same opinions over and over again. I’m definitely ready to move on.

  8. Pickgrin Says:

    The Buccaneers are “comfortable” with Winston because they have done all the researching there is to do about the false rape accusation. They concluded (as does just about anyone who deeply researches the known facts in the case) – that Jameis Winston did NOT rape Erica Kinsman.

    The accuser lied about multiple details that are provable and even her own boyfriend and her friends that were with her that night dispute her version of events. After the initial report was filed – Erica was not even cooperating with the police. She refused to tell them who the 2nd semen sample found in her underwear belonged to for instance. (It was her boyfriends – and BTW – who doesn’t shower and change their underwear after sex when going out for the night? – ewww!!) This is exactly why Winston was never arrested or charged. The investigation of the case was not “botched” by TPD. It was without merit from the very beginning – and that became pretty obvious pretty quickly to those who attempted to investigate the matter.

    If the rape accusation was never made – then none of Winston’s other “incidences” would have even been reported probably – much less headline news.

    What Hawaiian Buc said is fine by me.

  11. WalkdaPlank Says:

    How many times are you going to say the same things Joe? Dumpster diving for Jameis Watch articles. Fast forward to next week already. Scratch that, this is going to continue long after Jameis is drafted. Oh, joy.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    lol Walk

  13. Barry Says:

    Lovie Smith: Mike Glennon still Bucs’ QB of the future.

    #DP #HGH #PEDs #BrainDeadRetard

  14. The Other Side of the Coin Says:

    Don’t think for a minute this stops with the draft. Unless by some bolt of lightning the Bucs don’t draft Winston. Unlikely as it’s the right choice. This has legs that will last for months if not the whole season. Keep the articles coming Joe, there’s money in them there clicks.

  15. Barry Says:

    I’m not certain but if Winston’s found guilty of rape in the civil trail then would he have to register as a sex offender and/or sexual predator? Can you imagine your Franchise QB being a registered sex offender?

    #DP #HGH #PEDs #BrainDeadRetard

  16. Bogeyking Says:

    It’s really disgusting and laughable when an NFL team has to keep a law firm on retainer just to deal with their #1 pick QB’s future antics

  17. MarshallU Says:

    @ Joe

    You guys are really scraping the bottom of the barrell with all of these pro-Jameis posts. Even taking articles that aren’t about him and making them about him, lol. Can we please get to some REAL, factual football news and just not click generators? There are some very knowledgable football fans on here just waiting……..

  18. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I beg to differ,aside from a few a holes that will refuse to let this none since go once the the winning begins this will be a none issue in the media. You know that thing that effects so many of you folks minds. Once they stop making any mention it becomes done with,the same way it has in many other instances.

  19. Dreambig Says:

    Really Barry? Winston has not been arrested, he has not been charged with a crime. This is civil litigation, not criminal court. Surely you can noodle out the answer to your question.

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    “The week before it was my buddy’s birthday and we had got a cake and we met a dude who was inside Publix,” Winston told them. “And he said, ‘Hey, any time you come in here, I got you.’ So that day, we just walked up and he hooked us up with that.

    “And when I came in to get crab legs, he did the same thing. And he just gave them to me and I walked out. Someone from inside the store said I didn’t pay for them and that’s how the whole thing started.” – Jameis Winston

  21. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    “Well, a week before was my buddy’s birthday and we had got a cake,” Winston said. “We met a dude that worked inside Publix and he said, ‘Hey, anytime you come in here, I got you.’ So that day, we just walked out and he hooked us up with that. And when I went to get crab legs, I did the same thing and he just gave them to me and I walked out. And someone from inside the store had told the security that I didn’t pay for them and that’s how the whole thing started.”

    So Jameis Winston thinks that it is perfectly acceptable for a Publix to steal merchandise and give it to him; sounds like his moral compass is broken. From his statement, it appears this wasn’t the first incident of this nature that occurred. Where did he learn that stealing was acceptable

  22. Bogeyking Says:

    I guess I need to find a Publix that will give me free stuff too!

  23. Buc1987 Says:

    JoeJoes…you don’t get it.

    It’s called a hook up. Like my buddy that works at McDonald’s and gave me free french fries, just the other day.

    Oh no don’t call the police on me now…

    My kid got a free doughnut the other day at Dunkin Doughnuts as well, just because the kid at the counter thought she was cute….

    Don’t call the police on her or the Dunkin kid please.

  24. HawaiianBuc Says:


    It’s not necessarily true that the Publix employee is stealing. Maybe he’s buying it for him. When you are 19 and hungry, I’m not sure you are really thinking that long and hard about it anyway. I have never and will never blame any college player from accepting a handout. I’ve been around college athletes quite a bit, and don’t blame them one bit. Most don’t have any money, and can’t work a job to make money. Add on top of that the fact that football players make millions and millions of dollars for their schools. So no, I don’t blame them one bit for taking some crab legs.

  25. HawaiianBuc Says:


    Throw some TD passes, win the Heisman, win the National Championship, and I guarantee you can get more than just free food from Publix.

  26. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    Well it appears 87 & Hawaii….have broken moral compasses too……sad …does explain alot

  27. HawaiianBuc Says:


    So you want a team full of guys who have not and will not ever take anything for free? Well, I guess we are cutting everyone on the team tomorrow. You can’t possibly be this naive.

  28. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    Hey…Jameis got caught stealing…..at that point he needs to admit is fault…and not make any excuses or distortions in the story rationalizing his actions…I get people make mistakes and do things that should not do and know that should not do….however they must own up to their fault and live with the consequences….Jameis is a slimmy character ….he has not learned from his mistakes…so he is bound to continue…..

  29. robert 9 Says:

    ^^^^that needs to be stickied

  30. robert 9 Says:

    steal, lie, rape, pillage, vandalise etc, etc.

    as long as he can throw the ball, let’s make him a role model


  31. WS99 Says:

    steal, lie, rape, pillage, vandalise etc, etc.

    Sounds perfect for a bucanneer!

  32. John G Says:

    Winston has been suspended at EVERY level of football he has played.

  33. McBuc Says:

    I guess joejoes moral compass is broken when it comes to judging.

  34. Mariota Joe Says:

    Joe….”got too handsy”???? Seriously???? To diminish such a felonious accusation to “handsy” is neanderthalish…..even for this site. Besides, isn’t “getting too handsy” a serious crime???

    Not sure if Jimbo’s gonna be comfortable with Jameis, now that InFamous has apparently thrown the FSU program under the proverbial NCAA bus by covering his own ass with the accusation that it was standard policy that players got free stuff at Publix. Now THIS IS A FACT…either InFamous lied before….or he’s lying now….has to be one or the other. I’d love to hear from Publix management and employees.


  35. MarshallU Says:

    I guess I need to find a buddy who works at the BMW dealership

  36. WantstaStayaBuc Says:

    “I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility. In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items.”

    He lied and did not take responsibility for his actions. He now says that he went to the Publix with the intention of NOT paying. He didn’t buy anything let alone forget to pay for one item.

    Winston is the one that started this “immaturity” B.S.. He claimed “youthful ignorance” (i.e. he forgot to pay). That was outright manipulation and many of you fell for it.

    Now many Winstonites are saying that his lies were noble because he was protecting his team and the employee. He was protecting himself; he still is.

    Face of the Franchise!

  37. JoeJoes Fungi Nails Says:

    I hope the Glazers are reading these threads or having someone read and report the huge divide in the fan base……

  38. Bucs#1 Says:

    Winston will be a coach, GM, franchise and fan base killer. I’m getting all of my “I told you so’s” ready

  39. HawaiianBuc Says:

    “Winston will be a coach, GM, franchise and fan base killer. I’m getting all of my “I told you so’s” ready”


    Don’t worry, those “I told you so’s” go both ways.

  40. HawaiianBuc Says:

    Wow, you haters are really funny. So incredibly desperate. Keep it up boys, only 8 more days!

  41. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    Eight more days until the Bucs draft a QB, just not with the #1 pick, not in the first round, nor on day one of the draft. I realize many beers will be imbibed next Thursday at Pete & Shorty’s, but try not to destroy the place when the Bucs pass on both Mariota and Winston. Getting my told you so in 🙂

  42. Good Googley Moogley that thing is Juicy Says:

    I’m bout tired of JJFN and Robert9

  43. Senor Mofo Says:

    Why have a QB controversy when you can just draft a controversial QB?

  44. Buccfan37 Says:

    Face it, the biggest thieves are those at the top of government and banking, they are also untouchable in the eyes of the law. These little penny ante highjinks from lower level peons are what America has come to be. If not, the prisons would be nearly empty and the growing police state would be less threatening.
