Jameis Answers Question About His Disappointment In The NFL

July 26th, 2018

Fresh update

Remember the statement issued by Jameis Winston on the day his three-game suspension was handed down by Roger Goodell for alleged inappropriate sexual touching of an Uber driver?

Jameis said then he was “disappointed in the NFL’s decision.”

So why was Jameis disappointed? And why did he not appeal the ruling?

Joe asked Jameis today at One Buc Palace about the “disappointed” commentary and how fans should interpret it.

Jameis wasn’t looking back.

JoeBucsFan.com: Jameis, your statement [following the suspension] said that you were disappointed in the NFL, n the ruling. Should fans believe then that you didn’t do everything wrong that they said you did wrong? I mean, is it fair to trust the process that the NFL did?

Jameis Winston: Well, you know, they made their decision. You know, and it’s nothing I could say beyond that. They made a decision. I have to look at myself and grow and learn from this experience.

    He answered nothing and still hasn’t owned what he did as wrong.

  3. Jim Says:

    Good question, Joe…

  4. Tval Says:

    In other words….no…it’s not right to trust the nfl’s “process”, or lack thereof. I believe in him EVEN more now. Pretty obvious the nfl had NADA and wanted to save face by appeasing snowflake sissy fans…the same type that cry about a flag they’d NEVER fight for..lol..hilarity!!!!

  5. Casey Morgan Says:

    The NFL has tied his hands. He can’t say anything about the suspension…

  6. Broy34 Says:

    That’s because someone who believes he’s innocent isn’t going to own up and apologize. Time to move on now

  7. Tval Says:

    Jman can’t “read between the lines” take those mariota beaver hugging goggles off…hehehe….How much do you LOOOVE trump, “jman”?? Bwahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

  8. ben Says:

    Winston should NOT be the face of the bucs ..

  9. Jman5 Says:

    Lol keep on getting gaslighted by the sociopath

  10. Pete I Says:

    JW thinks he didn’t do anything wrong. Well he’s wrong.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Uh, he didn’t answer anything.

    Article title is misleading at best.

  12. The Buc Realist Says:

    He was “disappointed” that his usual denial, then pointing the blame at someone else, then he only gets a slap on the wrist did not work this time!!!!!!

  13. Bucsfanman Says:

    Blah, blah, blah…. he’s suspended for 3 games! Thanks for the clarification!!!

  14. Orlampa Turd Says:

    Good question, bad answer.

  15. jmarkbuc Says:

    Just saw the “interview” on NFLN

    For Joe to say he answered anything is straight up inaccurate.

    He didn’t look or sound like someone who had any contrition at all. As a matter of fact, he just looked annoyed.

    Surely he knew this day was coming, he could have prepared a little better.

  16. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Kobe thinks its time for JW and the Bucs to part ways after this season….the Glazer boys HAS NOT made their decision…

    they will wait to decide if corporation sponsors and the fanbase has accepted JW or not”

    Kobe Faker

  17. Godeep66 Says:

    Unfortunately, this will be a long/ grueling season for JW. It also looks like it will be his last season as a Tampa Bay buccaneer. I hope not, but the tea leaves are showing a different outcome. Let’s go Buccaneers, let’s go!

  18. Dapostman Says:

    After the first 3 games are over and Winston is back in the saddle hitting Mike Evans for TD’s people will have mostly moved on. If there is another issue then the sharks will reappear with the chum in the water. Not hard to figure out.

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Like I’ve predicted …….even with this being a very good question….Jameis will not address the issue….neither will Glazers, Licht or Koetter…..no matter how much pressure and persistence from the media……there will be nothing but…..”we are moving on” type of statements.
    Classic PR spin….and it is totally understandable under the circumstances.

  20. Jman5 Says:

    Tval I don’t like Mariota nearly as much as Bamas Tua who will eventually be Jameis’ replacement

  21. jjbucfan Says:

    LOL Man-Tua’s college career has consisted of one good half, impressive, yes but hardly “The Man” yet. Still amazes me that people actually consider Mariota a good NFL QB, it makes me wonder if anyone here actually watches football.

  22. joestang Says:

    to jjbucfan

    I believe Mariotta beat Winston twice and took his team to playoffs. Not a great qb but better morals and more of a team player. Wish we had him instead.

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    Aah yes, let’s keep the conspiracy alive instead of turning the page … The NFL is obviously out to get Jameis. (For non-conspiracy theorists, I’m being facetious. For conspiracy theorists, press on).

    As Jameis says, “They made their decision. You know, and it’s nothing I could say beyond that.” Uhhh, nothing he could say beyond that? How about if YOU screwed up Jameis, own it. If THEY screwed up, fight it.

    “He was “disappointed” that his usual denial, then pointing the blame at someone else, then he only gets a slap on the wrist did not work this time!!!!!!”

    We were getting along so well in the off season! Don’t spoil it! lol

    I watched the press conference.

    Jameis, as terms of his negotiations with the NFL, is not being permitted to defend himself. If he is innocent, he’s not allowed to say so, or they will add more games. He’s being forced to take a hit for the NFL, who does not want to appear weak toward this sort of thing.

    Realist, as soon as you can explain away the reason the NFL felt the need to negotiate the suspension, I’ll give a little more merit to what you are saying.

  26. Pete I Says:

    this presser did JW no favors.

  27. DB55 Says:

    he just looked annoyed.
    Agreed! It’s almost like he wanted to say something but knows he can’t. I know many want to hang him out to dry but it is total possible that this is a complete over reaction.

    Joe brought up an interesting question the other day, why hasn’t the report or video or interviews leaked? Fact remains Kate said he grazed her lap and everyone ran with that but in today’s day and age, no video? No leaks? Just seems strange.

  28. jjbucfan Says:

    to joestang

    Jameis has better career stats altogether. Football is a team sport and even Brady and Rodgers lose. If you think Mariota “led” his team to the playoffs, I want what you’re smoking. Mariota threw for 3200 yds and threw 13 TDs and had 15 ints. He had one of the very best running games in the league and a very good (not great defense). We had one of the worst running games in the league and the 32nd ranked defense. There is only so much one man can do. He may be a turd off the field, but this was all 2 years ago (it doesn’t excuse it of course) and he is now married with a child. Hopefully he will grow up. If not, I will be right there with you but as far as on the field performance goes, your Mariota arguments don’t hold water.

  29. Jman5 Says:

    Mariota with receivers and a playcaller from this century will be impressive. JJ Tua just strikes me as a better version of Russel Wilson with a stronger arm and all the humility. I’d rather him be the face that’s all I’m saying. He broke his non throwing hand in spring so he may not get the nod early in the college season.

  30. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    He should be annoyed and disappointed he has to let what the NFL ruled be the final rule.
    The same people who say he should have appealed would have a hissy fit…if he let this drag out through the season!

    Why should he act guilty if he feels the only wrong he did was put himself in the position of being accused this way and since then 2 1/2 years ago and prior he has done more for this community and beyond. MORE THAN ANY OF THE KEYBOARD MILITIA have given anyone EVER!

  31. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    JoeStang said “Wish we had (Mariota) instead.”

    Not me, man. Winston all day long, over Mariota. — His career will prove it over time, and it won’t be close.

  32. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    DB55 said “It’s almost like he wanted to say something but knows he can’t.”

    That’s what it looked like to me, too. — I agree with Pete that today didn’t do him any favors…. but it sort of looks like he is completely hamstrung.

  33. The Buc Realist Says:

    @Buc Bonzai

    Contrary to what some believe, The League Office does not want to be in court hearings and decisions go to arbitration!!!!!!!! They do not want to smear there players thru the media as well as the punishment process!!!! If Tom Brady would have just said he did it, instead of lying and fighting every step and destroying his phone, He would have received only a 1 game suspension to just a fine!!!!!!!!!! There are a number of instances, that if the guilty party accepts a No contest plea that the league office will hand out a lighter sentence, and will hide the details to even destroying their findings!!!!!!!!

    This is embarrassing to the Bucs because they spent over 1 million in an investigation of JW3 and he was caught doing something not as a egregious of what he had to make a civil settlement for, but was in the same realm!!!!!!!!

  34. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Poor Jameis…hard to see how this poor victim of society’s demands ever survives.

    Again…the Coaster’s “Charlie Brown”….

    “Why is everybody always pickin’ on me?”

    Base on this Joe i am not sure whether or not you’re on our side….

  36. niko Says:

    Its stunning how people cannot read between the lines.

    Look at the ONE FACT:
    No one knows what happened except the two involved

    Now lets deduce the OBVIOUS:EVERYTHING WE KNOW, OR HAVE SEEN, is a result of an NFL orchestrated deal by all parties.
    A negotiated deal is good for everyone. NFL doesn’t have to deal with another appeal of a well known NFL starter, for the 3rd year in a row (Tom Brady, Ezekiel Elliot, and a few years before that Ben Roethlisberger). Neither side has to deal with the letter the NFL wrote to Jameis; Elliot and Brady had their letter released to the public.
    I look at how we KNOW a deal was made: on my bucstop.com article Wednesday.
