More Jameis Attacks & The Anti-ASJ

May 6th, 2017


When will it end?

When will the character assassinations stop?

People continue to shame Jameis Winston’s name. From the local to the national levels, Winston stays on the minds of many for the wrong reasons. And they continue to publish their stupidity.

This week, the New York Post published an article with a ridiculous headline, tying Winston to a “football friend” accused of sexual assault. This, of course, was prime meat stuff for the detractors and his critics.

The article, which can be read here if you haven’t already, references USF’s LaDarrius Divonta Jackson as the suspect of said crime. The article emphasizes Jackson’s relationship with Winston, using Winston’s own words referring to Jackson as “family.”

We all know why this was written this way. We know why these attacks continue. The narrative is sickening.

Winston has been nothing but a model citizen and as kind, if not friendlier, than anyone you know. But all that along and his contributions to the community get swept under the rug.

Fortunately, Winston will continue to put on a show on the field. And now with the potential for a lethal aerial attack, the critics will be scrambling for something negative to write about him.

O’Terrius Jabari

Speaking of putting on a show on the field, Tampa Bay’s new main man got a feel for the Bucs’ practice grass Friday.

O.J. Howard and fellow rookies along with tryout players reported for rookie mini-camp. While the vibe was good, one thing that stood out most. That is how Howard answered questions. More specifically, a certain question.

Following practice, Howard expressed his commitment to perfecting the playbook when asked about it.

“It requires studying every day so you can learn it. Every day you put more on it, so you’ve got to learn new things every day and remember what you learned yesterday. But so far it’s not bad at all.

“You just have to double-up. You have to study two installs a night. That’s just something you have to do. You have to keep looking over it, and then I write it down so I can remember it. You have to go those extra steps just to retain it.”

Man, does that not sound similar to Winston’s commitment level? Remember all the videos and images we’ve seen of America’s Quarterback hitting the playbook? If Howard replicates that commitment, this offense can be more than special.

That almost guarantees the Bucs have themselves a true gem at tight end. Unlike the previous guy, who stated his game would emulate that of Tony Gonzalez following his first mini-camp practice. Whoops.

    When will this anti ASJ ranting stop ? lol

    Gil, if you want these attacks agaisnt Jameis to stop, just do not speak about them ! I know what “ink” some medias seem to see in this particular case, but don’t speak about them !

    We, as Tampa Bay fans, have more thing to enjoy or be concern about than a stupid article written by a person who is only interested in click or rating.

    So Please, speak more about OJ Howard professionalism, about this rookie who suddenly seems to be a special guy or others positives stuff and let the haters hate !

    Jameis understood that already, he applies his coach word “speak softly and carry a big motherf#@~ng stick” !

  2. Bird Says:

    I just took a nasty ASJ this morning and was pondering how great it is to have an all around tight end like OJ. And don’t have to worry about off field issues. He will make offensive line better. And bucs not as predictable like last few years on whether running or throwing. Stoked this guy is on our team!

  3. Jimbo Says:

    With pals who are insiders in Leon and Pasco counties, I can categorically state the rape allegations are a crock. Best at this point is to ignore all the BS.

  4. ben Says:

    Mr.Winston has stayed out of trouble since becoming a buc . If you saw the video of him in cafe at school you would know why memories are long . I am glad he seems to have matured since the bucs push him to be the face of the team along with you for calling him America’s qb.

    I’m just one poster, but damn Gil… Your articles SUCK

    I RESPECT any man’s opinion. But your article lack true substance for me. On this glorious day you type up this propaganda.

  6. darin Says:

    Exactly. I agree. These stories are getting brought up by more people, when most of us would not have heard about it. To answer the question tho when will it end? When will the character assassinations stop? They wont. All he can do is continue to be himself, which seems to be a great human being. As we know people love to take shots, thatll never stop. They will fade tho. N who cares if people keep reading this crap? If some guy in ny doesnt like jw over something he read oh well. Ill live. Jw will live, and thrive. Lets focus on the positives. Go bucs

  7. Destinjohnny Says:

    Guys from the great state of Alabama take there ball personally.
    These guys are all serous

  8. JTHV Says:

    Wow, why the attacks on Gil?

    People should be happy there’s a local pin and mic club willing to thrash a media source that is clearly spewing propaganda with no intention but to add clicks to justify their online advertising dollars.

    What’s wrong with our fan base? Jeez …

  9. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Seriously JTHV. These posters are complete d1cks to him. They feel better about their lot in life I guess. I guess it has to suck to live in your mom’s basement though. Pay no attention to the Gil. I think you’re doing fine with these articles.

  10. Defense Rules Says:

    Published in the New York Post? Wonder if that rag would’ve run the article if they had Jameis as THEIR QB? Gotta believe that they’d love to have Jameis over Eli (Giants) or Whatshisname (Jets). Jameis knows better than the rest of us that crapola like this is too often the price of fame.

  11. Buc89 Says:


    Thanks for sticking up for our quarterback. I have no idea why fans give you “advice” to ignore something when it’s your job to write your damn opinion. I have even less of an idea why any fan would defend asj! That guy threatened fans and people are defending him????

    If you don’t like gils articles then dont click on them. It’s that simple retards.

    Good job on the article, Gil. Those of us with a brain appreciate it.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    ASJ with the Jets….

    “I’m going to stretch the field vertically, and I’m going to do everything in between.”

    “I’m excited for the opportunity next year. I want to come back and be a force to be reckoned with.”

  13. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    First of all as a counterweight to some Gil Bashing. He is one of my favorites.
    Different strokes I guess.

    I get the sentiment about just ignoring the Fameis “character” stories. But I do not blame any poster or reporter on JBF for bringing up what is news and the NY Post is a large outlet for spreading this manure.

    So if you think about it the story breaks down a couple of ways….
    It IS a story that press is still doing this to #3…..#3’s character however is no longer really a story. He’s been exemplary in Tampa and shown nothing but positive character traits.

    There is a Zen saying…you’ll see where you place your attention. So while I’m aware that there is a small segment of unhappy people who will continue to harp…I don’t really place my attention there…I have my attention on #3’s positive qualities off the field…in the locker room….and his new assortment of incredible toys! Go Bucs!

    Is it character assassination if it is true. Did he not settle a sexual harassment or battery claim, did he notcstezl crab legs, did he not shoot a BB gun, did he not use vulgar language in the student center, was he not pals with the dude locked up for sexual battery. So truth is now character assassination. Being anyone replay please answer the questions put forth

  15. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    I’m a grown man boy. Reaper to name calling meet me in person… I’m in Riverview!!! I’ll take u to the basement…
    Wut up
    Don’t like what I’ve got to say…

    I ain’t hard to find

  16. Howard Returns Says:

    As far as the Winston hate:
    Jackasses don’t like to be wrong

  17. Buc89 Says:


    No, you’re not hard to find. Morons like you are a dime a dozen. Have fun calling people out online.

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    Guys from Oklahoma sure do not take football or winning seriously

  19. Garv Says:

    Well, Tom Jones certainly helped HIS reputation with his asinine attack on Jameis a couple of months ago. Whenever his name is brought up these days, at least whenever I’ve heard his name brought up it is immediately followed by the word SUCKS!


    [Gil has been a credentialed Bucs writer in the past, has solid sources inside One Buc Palace and also has experience running a popular Bucs site. Besides, Gil has a strong, loyal following. Your analysis is terribly unfair if not flat out wrong. — Joe]

  21. Buccfan37 Says:

    Much ado about nothing in the Gil dislike.

  22. NFLNut Says:

    Get used to it … and revel in it!

    Jameis is on pace to become one of the all-time great NFL QB’S … add to that fact he was a prodigy, won the heisman, won the NCAA title, is setting records, is black and has the past he has and you can expect there to be serious hate for him in the media throughout his career … but … so what?

    Tom Brady and Kobe Bryant are widely hated too .. because they are sooooo successful … Jameis will be the same imho.

    1.) Word is that his accuser DROPPED her lawsuit (and didn’t receive a penny from Jameis) as she was worried she would lose and have to pay him.

    2.) No, the TMZ released tape seems to clearly confirm that what Jameis always said, namely that an employee “gave him the crab legs and told him he’d cover the cost” was indeed the truth.

    3.) Yes, I think he shot a BB gun … many times … who cares?

    4.) Yes, he used “vulgar language” as has basically every NFL player and coach in the history of the game … who cares?

    5.) I have no idea if he was “pals” with the kid mentioned but “guilt by association” is a childish game hypocrites play … let me know when you read the following headlines and we can talk about Jameis:

    “Tom Brady’s pal guilty of murder”
    “Dak Presott’s buddy the drug addict”
    “Joe Facco’s pal the wife beater”
    “Andy Dalton’s buddy the girl puncher”
    “Alex Smith’s pal the pregnant girlfriend strangler”

    I answered all your questions … have fun hating on a young man who has been nothing but a superstar on the field, in the locker-room and in the community since the day he was drafted.

  24. JIMMY T Says:

    Jameis had a couple of immature incidents in College. The Crab Legs from PUBLIX thing and the BB Gun incident and he has conducted himself very well here in Tampa. i do not count the incident with the young lady because he was never charged and anyone who tries to say that Jameis is a bad character person like a Lawrence Phillips has zero clue. Also no one knows what the settlement was in the civil suit but remember Jameis was also suing her. i can assure you there was compromise on BOTH parties. What i am saying is don’t associate Jameis’s character regarding the alleged incident with the young lady from Zephyrhills and for the NY Times and other publications to do so is wrong. This is a good kid and we can only hope that he stays healthy and continues to grow as a QB and as an adult.

  25. Jimmy T Says:

    Well said NFL NUT, in regards to the lawsuit I heard the same thing that Jameis did not give her a dime. I’m sure Jameis was prepared to go to civil court and win his lawsuit.

  26. The Anomaly Says:

    Winston didn’t pay a penny? Please link.

    Thank you.
