Jameis Winston Won’t Bail On Social Media

June 30th, 2015

lovie 1110bAmerica’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, may be running and hiding from his Super Bowl plan, but he won’t hide from the trolls and haters on Twitter.

While being drilled by media at the NFL Rookie Symposium last week in Ohio, Jameis was asked about social media.

Marcus Mariota has no interest in such folly. Gerald McCoy has been all-in and all-out, depending on his mood. Jameis will play, and he wants to use it for good (like any true superhero.)

Here are Jameis’ words, via the Associated Press.

“You can only be yourself. What people put out there on social media is just whatever. But I am just trying to be a better person and live life, and that’s all,” [Jameis said]. “I mean social media can help you in so many ways, from a positive standpoint. I can’t control what people put on social media about me, but I can control my actions and what I do.”

Joe sees the benefits of social media for players. But they need thick skin to keep it a positive experience. Jameis has proved he has that more than any other Buccaneer. So Joe’s glad Jameis will keep Tweeting for the forces of good.

    On the rare occasions when I go on his instagram page, it really sickens me to read the comments of some people. I don’t think I could deal with it, and I certainly couldn’t deal with it if I was his parent. If he can handle it, that’s great for him. It’s just hard for me to wrap my head around it not bothering him.

    Some people can just ignore negative comments and all the while grow stronger because of them, no matter what walk of life you undertake.
