Jameis Says He Wants To Be “That Perfect Role Model”

July 1st, 2018

Three weeks ago, Jameis Winston sat down at One Buc Palace for a private chat with Joe and Tampa Bay’s only Hall of Fame voter, Ira Kaufman.

Some of that discussion was for public consumption via the still-ranked-on-the-Google-Play-top-charts podcast known as the Ira Kaufman Podcast.

Joe mentioned to Jameis about how moving it was to see a Tampa elementary school principal speak in Pinellas Park, along with a handful of her students, at a Jameis foundation event on a Friday night in May. She and her pupils didn’t have to be there speaking on Jameis’ behalf.

Jameis said the real powerful talk came from her students.

“Hearing a parent or an executive explain how these kids are benefiting [from my service and foundation] is important; you can tell their pride for it. But hearing it from the kids’ mouths themselves, like, it just brings tears to your eyes. It’s like, ‘Man, this kid one day is going to be our next president. This kid has an incredible sense of humor. This kid has incredible intelligence.’

“And that’s what I want to be to these kids, that perfect role model. You know, no one’s perfect, but I’m going to shoot to be perfect every single day I can. You know, because again, I’m about to be a father, man. Now, not only are everyone else’s kids going to be looking at me. I’m going to have my own kid looking at me. And I’m going to have to teach him how life goes and how to respect everyone and be kind to others and how to lead, and more importantly how to serve others. That’s what I do. So I can’t wait for that.”

Assuming the Bucs keep Jameis on the roster, how will his community service be affected? Will Hillsborough County Schools allow him on campuses? Will Jameis maintain any corporate support for his foundation?

If Jameis truly desires to be “that perfect role model,” how will he address his community supporters and what message will he send directly to the kids of Tampa Bay. Will he believe his statement in response to the NFL suspension was enough?

    Damage control

    Startingggggg NOW!!

  3. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Winston’s comments were appropriate for a guy who has never messed up in the very serious way that he has…TWICE no less, or for a guy who erred ONCE, and didn’t lie about it and/or conceal it for years.

    This is just more of Winston the con-artist, the liar, the blamer, bamboozler, talking a line.

    Three weeks is just once of many that Winston looked (insert Joe, or whomever’s name here) in the eye and made a joke of that person.

    Jameis just needs to shut up now and put his fate in the hands of those who wronged.

    The only thing Jameis deserves from anyone right now is the ability to get therapy.

  4. lightningbuc Says:

    His “community service” is a facade, much like he, himself is. Only rubes like Joe buy into this nonsense. Jaboo is so stupid that he invited himself to speak at a local high school commencement as a Twitter contest. The Pasco school found out and quickly uninvited him (Jaboo claimed it was a scheduling conflict). DUH – you’re under investigation for SEXUAL ASSAULT – no one wants you speaking to bright, young minds.

  5. meh Says:

    Cut him.

  6. AlteredEgo Says:

    Silence and action speaks volumes….sorry Jameis your legacy is on delay…waving pom poms I’m all better ain’t going to fool ANYONE but you and your bad advisers….keep your mouth shut…stay out of the spotlight and maybe in 5 years you can reappear …otherwise you are in denial of the mistrust the sports world has in you…you just can’t a “sorry” and everything is back to how you perceive yourself…because the real world does not share that perception….hence you NEEDING to take a year away from football…you are in denial and need of great help

  7. stpetebucsfan Says:

    It really doesn’t matter whether Jameis heart is now in the right place….the PR ship has sailed out of Tampa Bay. I agree it’s sad but it is what it is.

    People as in the comments above are simply not going to be impressed. And again….Jameis lovers…it gives me no pleasure to observe this….I was totally on board with drafting #3…to this day I believe he’s far better on the field than MM..Jameis has charisma to spare and it’s hard not to like him.

    But that’s over now. It’s going to be FHITP Jameis it’s better than groping…from New Orleans to Chicago.

  8. MTM Says:

    Jameis says all the right things and does all the wrong things. This circus has run its course. Move on Glazers to the next horrible draft picks.

  9. Roy T. Buford Says:

    OMG if that guy comes out with this BS line now he will only be pouring gasoline on the fire. We heard all of this before.

    While I don’t think Winston is a threat to kids or women in the community, he is making a mockery of whoever puts him out there to speak or respesent anything that it is. Parents of kids in Hillsborough County Schools have a right to demand this chump not be able to be around their kids and influence them. It could very well be that only thing making Winston different from his acquaintance, Banks, right now is a recording.

    Jameis should be making prison tours of the prison circuit preaching about how sometimes one gets lucky, and to think twice about their actions if they get their freedom again.

    The NFL thinks he did it, and it’s fair for anyone to believe he did it and not want anything to do do with him.

  10. Sc Bucs fan Says:

    This country loves a good come back. He didn’t do anything so egregious that he should be banned for life. Judge him on what he does going forward.

  11. Orlampa Turd Says:

    He’s a psychopath and a moron. Cut the Menace to Society so he can get the F out of my state and back to Alabama.

  12. T REX Says:

    Keep him away from the women and children.

    Jameis lied and deceived until that last minute then came out with an ill advised position statement…the guy is still in denial….and has not a clue how the outside world views him….he has surrounded himself with some bad advisers more concerned with staying on his payroll than given the golden goose proper long term advice….

  14. Rob Says:

    JW got his second or third chance with the Bucs when they rolled the dice and selected him first overall. Now that he has cemented his name forever in the Hall of Shame at One Buc Place, it is time to move on. I will forgive him when he is truly sorry and asks for forgiveness. I still don’t want him as the face of my franchise though. Let him go and try and win a championship somewhere else and have that franchise walk on egg shells just waiting for the inevitable slip that sends their starting quarterback into indefinite suspension. The Bucs cannot risk losing their quarterback at the slightest slip up and JW is labeled and branded as a sexual assaulter now. Buc career over. Move on. Go Bucs!

  15. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Had a babysitter once–some warned us not to use, because she couldn’t follow instructions and didn’t watch the kids well. We were in a pinch, knew our kids are pretty wellbehaved (they’d better be) and gave her a chance anyway, knowing we could call and check on things. After all, it was just one evening and we were still in town about only 20 minutes away. Turns out, she called freaking Germany and talked for over an hour, was drinking our wine (under aged) and we don’t know, maybe the booze, and was particularly cheery and glassy eyed when we got home (from the wine and/or something else?). I’ll add we did get home two hours early and soon after we arrived, so did some guy–surprised to see us when we answered the door. We explained how unhappy we were, and how all of the above was not acceptable without permission first. We told her no visitors before we left, and who knows, maybe he just showed up without her asking him to. But enough damage was done with the drinking “on the job” and being underaged in my house, and I didn’t even find out about the phone call until a week later when I got the bill. The answer was not to give her another chance after all this. We were stupid not to listen to the warnings the first time, but were in a pinch.

    The Bucs need to get out of the pinch now and lose the loser, Winston.

    One word , Ruffie!

  17. JabooBuc Says:

    TbBucs3 wins the day!

  18. csidedave Says:

    Great talk about the importance of being a role model for the kids and now your child. But it was the same thing you said about being a role model for your little brother 4 years ago.

    I bought it 100% it last time. This time, not so much.

  19. Roy T. Buford Says:

    @SC Bucs fan…I think you joking with us.

    You said: “He didn’t do anything so egregious that he should be banned for life.” The NFL thinks he did inappropriate touching in a sexual way, which means a recording a legal charge could be the only thing between him being an NFL QB and prisoner #333333333333. I don’t know, nor do you, but the NFL thinks he did it. I am inclined given all the surrounding facts that emerged that he probably did. Pretty egregious. Banks is in for a sentence that is over about the time Winston’s NFL career would be.

    You said: “Judge him on what he does going forward.” So we merely have to rewind to where he said that the last time and play the tape for you. Doesn’t work but one time..maybe.

  20. Zwak Says:

    If the Bucs are smart they would cut the cheerleaders, it’s just not a safe work environment!

  21. Bucfan1976 Says:

    I can clearly see the band wagon riders are out today an
    Marcus marotta fans as well.
    Cutting jw would set this franchise back 5-7 years
    Then I’ll have to sit here an listen to yall knuckleheads complain
    About how bad the bucs are for another 5-7 years.
    Theres no way the glazers family will cut him. To much invested in
    Him, an a hell of alot to lose if they do.
    So get over jw is your franchise qb. Oh I know
    I wont renew my season tickets. Lol. You dont have none anyhow an if you do
    Get rid of them. We dont want know buc fan wanna be’s anyhow.

  22. Sc Bucs fan Says:

    Roy T, if he did was was reported – grabbed her between the legs – then I don’t know anyone who goes to jail for that. I’m not saying what he did was right but I don’t believe he goes to jail for it, him or anybody. Will he screw up again! Who knows, I’m not Nostradamus.

  23. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Joe is probably way ahead of us, and God knows there is time, but it’s a safe bet Winton will be on the roster all of 2018. A poll question in addition to what I’ve seen already:

    Should Winston be a team captain in 2018? Answer choices: 1. No, he has lost trust to lead. 2. No, but maybe in 2019 if he earns trust back. 3. Let his team mates and coaches decide. 4. Can’t be team captain when you are cut. 5. Yes, he did nothing wrong.

  24. Buc believer Says:

    Sounds like he did “Kate” a service by allowing her to be able to buy that double wide she has been working for by driving Uber. Can you say JACKPOT Kate?

  25. Buccernutter Says:

    You guys can believe whatever you want. Don’t get mad at others opinions though.

    It is entirely possible that he did get blacked out and didn’t remember. As someone who has reviewed all of the evidence and testimonies and court docs from the kinsman case that he is more than likely innocent. Way too much evidence that it was consensual. Again playing devil’s advocate, he may think she was lying like kinsman was because he didn’t remember. This would explain the Darby testimony about the first ride and his inability to recall the second. It also explains his lack of admitting guilt. Maybe she only knows the truth. Unfortunately it does seem like he did but the public statement was a slippery slope because he cannot admit it without opening the door to more legal ramifications as well but he needed to do enough to adhere to the agreement with the NFL. I do not blame him one bit for the apology and I’m sure attornies will agree.

    I will say Jameis is definitely one of the world’s greatest actors and I just hope we can see the real jw one day and he’s who we thought. A good dude who has made terrible decisions at a young age.

  26. DB55 Says:

    Is it me or are you hearing more disgust with Jameis than you heard when parkland happened? Where was all the rage for the safety of women and children then? Then the kids were snowflakes and paid actors and you’d have to pry it from your cold hands.

    I wonder what the difference maybe? Hmmmm?

    Also curious how Jerry Richardson’s situation has totally evaded the national airwaves since his punishment was handed down on Friday? Geez I wonder what’s the difference? Jerry was 4 times worse if not more but mum is the word there.

    Yesterday I saw a guy with a buzz cut, hadn’t shaven in weeks, wearing a #87 jersey as he walked through the intersection with an obvious meth high and I thought to myself there goes Roy T and/or JMan.

  27. jmarkbuc Says:

    Jameis says a lot of stuff…

    In fact he never knows when to shut up, unless he’s got something to hide. Then you can’t get a word out of him for 2 years.

    I’m more and more inclined to agree with AlteredEgo, this guy needs to sit out a year and re-evaluate his life, out of the spotlight. The adoration and adulation he has received from a very young age has to be a huge part of the reason he is the megalomaniac he has become. His misogynistic tendencies are either an offshoot of this, or a more deep seeded problem.

    If he has any chance of turning it all around, it has to be away from football, away from enablers. He doen’t need anyone else to tell him how great he is. He firmly believes that already.

    What he says anymore is really irrelevant

  28. Roy T. Buford Says:

    @SC Bucs…the case in question aside, if charges are pressed, if a person inappropriately touches another person in specific areas without consent, it is sexual assault…or sexual abuse in some states like Arizona. It is a crime for which one can be convicted in court. I get it, that happens all the time on dates and nothing comes out of it–but still could. I’ve made the rounds before about “date rape” as was a popular subject in the 90s and early 2000s. Doing it to someone at work or out in public, especially a stranger, is even more serious. People go to jail for sexual assault all the time. In fact, one of the guys Winston was with that night he is getting suspended for is in the clink for 15 years. Yeah, most serious felony…aggravated sexual battery for Banks I believe it is…but sexual assault has several degrees of severity. Granted, one can be convicted and not go to jail, but lots of folks are in jail for that stuff.

  29. Pete I Says:

    My 11 year old daughter asked me why America’s Choir Boy was in so much trouble. She was horrified at my even limited explanation. He isn’t a role model for kids. Maybe somedl day but not today.

  30. jmarkbuc Says:


    “I will say Jameis is definitely one of the world’s greatest actors and I just hope we can see the real jw one day and he’s who we thought.

    There are those who thought he was exactly what he has shown himself to be now.

    Average, erratic QB with a penchant for turnovers,boneheaded plays and off the field issues. None of the Good Rev. Jameis act has done anything to dissuade that, and actually only makes him look worse.

  31. Lamarcus Says:

    JW did not touch that girl.

  32. Roy T. Buford Says:

    @DB55…it is good to know that Roy T is getting into your head. That’s the first step to enable reform.

  33. Buddy Says:

    Hey, he is the perfect person to speak on the matter. Just like in your church, do you want someone preaching to you that doesn’t actually understand sin and what to and not do, and the REASON they are now a preacher or someone who is a hypocrite?

    How about AA? Same reasoning

    He owes us ALL and needs to pay us back on the field. We aren’t in the church business. Get that? We are in the “kicking arse” business!

    Your focus needs to be on payback on the field. That’s ALL that concerns you!

    The police and the NFL will handle what ever else….

    You need to be thankful that it’s only 3 games. Season ticket holders invested good money and he is liable to pay that back in touchdowns. That’s ALL that you need to be CONCERNED about!!!

  34. Bobby M. Says:

    Doubtful he’s let back into schools other then FSU for a while….Corporations will also likely steer clear for a few years. I think he’ll always have some type of supporters, you can see them on here but from a foundation standpoint, this Uber incident was a big blow. Society’s reaction is wildly unpredictable and quickly snowballs with social media….Why would a corporation want to risk that blow back? They can donate elsewhere with no concerns of any negative PR.

    Winston is delusional…..and drinks waaaay too much of his own kool aid. The dude literally just needs to shut up and perform. If he does that, everything will take care of itself.

  35. JabooBuc Says:

    DB55: WTF are you even talking about? This is a Bucs fans website intended for fans to discuss all things Bucs. For those of us disgusted by JW’s behavior, it’s due to the fact that he already had a checkered past and was soooo stupid to have let himself get in this position again.

    Why is this so hard for people like you to understand? Is it the worst thing ever? Of course not. However, we are talking about investing future trust and money to a guy that apparently has a really hard time understanding the rules of life.

    I am an FSU grad and watched all this unfold while he was there. I thought he had learned his lesson and we as Bucs fans would benefit from that. Clearly i was wrong. It’s really hard to fix stupid.

  36. tval Says:

    OUCH, DB55!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Truth HURTS
    When it’s “one of theirs” they batten down the HATCHES!!, Jameis was never ANY OF these CLOWNS “own”….and it’s SAD TO SEE…all the hatred and anger directed at an accusation…one…with ZERO CREDIBILITY TO SHOW!!!! HA!! I didn’t know it SNOWED SO HARD IN THE SOUTH…..EARLY JULY…heheheheheeeee

    Mostly just a bunch of holier-than-thou hypocrites who rarely if ever commented on JBF before up in here lately. Doing their best (without all the facts) to run Winston out of town now that a 3 game suspension has been announced.

    Just like before the 2015 draft – there is once again all this talk and prognostication by Winston dislikers of women’s group protests and sponsors withholding their monetary support because of JW’s presence on the team – and its all a bunch of BS. Wishful thinking by the haters. Not one iota of that happened before and it won’t be happening in the future either.

    Get over yourselves Winston haters. You aren’t going to dictate nor even influence what this team does for the best interest of the franchise with your loud, vocal minority style judgments and character assassinating “opinions” about a man you don’t know and have never spent 1 minute talking to.

    Many of you posting such negative and judgmental comments about Jameis here in the last 10 days – should go look at yourselves in the mirror right now and just be thankful that the worst decision(s) you ever made did not get released TMZ style for the world to judge you by…

  48. DB55 Says:

    This isn’t a “safe space”, fellas…I think joe’s use of America’s Qb, should have been warning enough.. Don’t be ashamed of your hypocrisy..wear that like a badge of courage and we MIGHT have more respect for ya…I KNOW “AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL”!!word for word since 6…LOL

    Y’all cuz Alteredego and co. Is the type u want them to marry your daughter. Sqeeky clean gentlemen they are. And the damning part is THEY CARE ABOUT WOMEN BEING TOUCHED so much while women/children trafficking is on the rise they don’t give that one thought. Where were they when women and kids being separated?

    Surely a grown arse man who has spent the last 4 days trolling a 24 yo kid can take more than he dishes out? Do you need a safe place where your protected from consequences? Lmao, you people are truly a joke and I’m here for all of it. BRING IT!!!

  57. JabooBuc Says:

    Okay tval, clearly the drinking starts early for you on Sundays I am no millennial. I am a grown ass man with two daughters that have seen enough of JW’s sh*t to know this dude is too dumb to get out of his own way.

    I have defended this guy for the past several years on this site, I am sure Joe can confirm this. My name has remained the same throughout. However, i am done with him. I manage people for a living. Once they lie to you then you get what you tolerate.

  58. T REX Says:

    DB55 is a troll.

    Do not support sexual abuse, lying, cheating, stealing and general disrepect for women.

    Don’t forget the gay bashing too.

    JW is human garbage. There’s no hypocrisy because I’m a good human. JW is trash.

    Take out Tampa’s trash and cut that POS.

  59. JabooBuc Says:

    tval, i am no millennial so guess again moron. I am an educated grown ass man with two daughters who has seen this dope wear out his welcome at FSU and now I’d like to see this team and town move on.

    I have been on this site with this name for several years defending JW. I am sure Joe can confirm this. I believe him to be of elite talent and capable of great things. However, as i have said before, you clearly can’t fix stupid. He was given a second chance and he can’t figure it out.

    I manage people for a living. Once they lie to you, then continue to get what you tolerate. Not saying he should go to jail or be condemned for life. Just saying if it were me, i wouldn’t tolerate his stupidity anymore.

    Why is that so difficult to understand?

  60. Jeffbuc Says:

    Yeah I know what tval is talking about. He is talking about the pussification of America. You guys all are offended and bent out of shape because a professional athlete who plays for your favorite team made a stupid drunken decision. And was never charged with a crime. And you guys are all so butt hurt you want to run him out of town. And there probably some underlying racism about your feeling because you never really like him anyways. How will I ever explain to my kid what he did. You don’t have to don’t let him watch football. Your going to have to explain all the ped suspensions the wife beatings the kneeling the pig socks. The dui the dead man at a players house. And on and on. Just turn the radio to a rap station and try to explain the lyrics of those songs to your kid. While your at it don’t let him watch tv. Cause then you will have to explain the gay aids commercial with dudes lying in bed talking about wearing condoms that’s more offensive to me. But to you old perverts who probably love seeing that commercial while role playing with young men in your head will throw stones at jameis. You can’t jusge someone else if your not perfect. Why don’t all you haters while posting come out and post your most hidden secret that you did that you have probably lied about multiple times so we can judge you and ban you from this website. If we knew half the stuff everyone has done on here we would never go to a football game again. We would be scared to death of people if we knew there true demons. Roy T Buford I bet you are the perfect gentleman you have never done anything illegal. You have never drove drunk where you could have killed a family. You never made unwanted passes a t a women. You have never accidentally got something for free from the grocery store in the bottom of your cart and didn’t go back in and tell them. No one has ever told you this one was on me and you don’t know if they actually paid for it. So yeah I think that’s what he is saying you all are overblowing a drunken move on a girl. Like I said earlier I went onto an Arizona lawyer site. They said that crime usually carries a 6 month probabtion. With no sex offender registry. But often times is not even brought or trial because it is a he said she said and never any proof. And the penalty is not that big so it’s not worth the time basically. So I am not perfect either in college did I have sex with chicks that were probably looking back way to intoxicated yes I’d did. Would I do that now he’ll now am I some kind of sexual predator he’ll no I was a horny young man. Should I be fired from job because I had sex with drunk girls in college hell no. He copped a feel and you say you lost all respect for him like he is your friend and you personally knew him. Because you here a 15 minute interview 16 times a year you think he is your buddy or something. If you guys are so offended why don’t you go out and make people aware of this epidemic plaguing are country the drunk man 5 second grope and stop. It’s tearing families apart. The shame is I bet Kate is less offended than most of you posters.

  61. Reach87 Says:

    Lots of “holy” “morally upstanding” voices out there. A shame because Winston brought it in himself. Lots of “cut the psychopath” drivel as well. Everyone has an opinion (rightly so). They want to cut Winston, fire the coach, fire the GM, sell the team, it goes on. Sad. Sadly for those who never made and never will make a mistake, this is what is gonna happen: Bucs (team game) will be much improved this year because we have better players, Winston will not be cut (based on what we actually know about this incident) and he will come back after suspension to play extremely well. Haters will hate, preachers will preach, and our franchise QB (I didn’t say perfect, HOF, or All Pro) will prove why he is just that…

    Go Bucs!

    I wish the him best with his drinking issue. Once he conquers that he’s well equipped to help lead this team forward. However, based on some of the virtue signaling comments on this board I’d say some of you have much bigger issues to deal with.

    Oh the outrage!


  66. Onetrickpony Says:

    role model…… role model…….?
    For what…..gropeing women when you should keep your
    hands to,yourself
    Damn , take a chill pill Winston,too late for that jit

  67. JabooBuc Says:

    Jesus, it’s not about being offended. It’s about wasting time with people that clearly don’t learn from their mistakes. Let’s equate it to football shall we?

    If he continually shows poor judgement and throws into double coverage over and over again resulting in turnovers, then i would think we could all agree that we would eventually move on.

    Same thing here…We have a multiple acts of poor judgement that actually caused him to leave school early because the school was done with him (if you don’t think this is true you should talk to some people at FSU). He did an incredible sell job on the Bucs (me included) and convinced us that he had learned from his mistakes. This incident indicates that is not the case.

    I want him gone because i think he’s an idiot and i don’t want an idiot as my QB. Simple as that.

  68. Garv Says:

    Too late. Role models don’t have multiple sexual assault charges against women. Time to concentrate on eliminating the personal demons privately and anonymously as well as improving on the football field. More walk, less talk should be the rule of the day.

  69. jmarkbuc Says:

    I think the alcohol thing is just a lame excuse… One of the oldest in the book.

    Has anyone ever said JW has/had a drinking problem?

    If he does I hope he gets help. Just think it’s a little too convenient to blame his actions on a drinking problem.

    Funny, but there is conjecture that he is now telling his friends he didn’t do it. Last week JW supporters were claiming he was “blackout” drunk and just didn’t remember. If he’s telling his friends he didn’t do it ,surely he must remember.

    The guy is a phony, and not a great QB.

    As far as his on the field play, If Trent Dilfer turned the ball over and couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn like Jameis, he would get run out of town…oh wait….

  70. Not there yet Says:

    Wow Joe this sure is full of moralist all of whom I’m sure have no criminal background whatsoever but if they did who would know because their nobody’s. There’s no such thing as a perfect role model which shows he still has a lot of growing up to do. Bunch of idiots here talking like the incident didn’t happen 2 years ago and his comments on the podcast were to cover up something from 2018. Idiots the allegation was already out there and this is about community work something I’m sure very few of you cowards hiding behind a keyboard do. Classic haters at their best. We are all imperfect so when the times comes you need a second chance at that time will come just remember the Winston hate because you yourself are saying no one is worthy of a second chance

  71. Darin Says:

    Starting to think this guy has no idea that actions speak louder than words and people are judged off their actions. Anyone can run their mouth and talk the talk. As my mom told me when I was young Jameis, talk is cheap. You’ve got a long road ahead to be a role model. A perfect one you’ll never be. Get over yourself and start acting like a man first, role model stuff happens naturally. Go Bucs Go Fitz

  72. Durango 95 Says:

    Conjecture is preciously what the anonymous “Kate” is using to manipulate the emotions of our resident pitchfork mob.

  73. jmarkbuc Says:


    At least she remembers..Jameis doesn’t, or didn’t..wait now he does.

  74. JMan5 Says:

    Jameis enablers. Disgusting

  75. Lamarcus Says:

    U guys should join the #Metoo Movement. They have plenty of room y’all there. Y’all acting JW touch yall.

  76. Chris Says:

    That ship has sailed. No way any school should will allow Home in the building to lecture kids.

  77. AlteredEgo Says:

    Enablers…. in my book it has been the con job and multiple lies Jameis told in the “ it’s been 2 years “…not so much as the grop… then followed by his disengenous “apology “ While I disagree with the NFL”… the guy is a mental mess

  78. Durango 95 Says:

    You can be sure that she remembers to google the name Jameis Winston and John Clune. Then suddenly realizes she’s stumbled upon on an ephipany.

  79. JMan5 Says:

    He should not be allowed to speak to school children

  80. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Wow…. watching all Bucs fans just ripping ourselves and one another apart.
    This is all so sad.

    Sadly… I am suddenly sort of feeling like I can’t wait for the Bucs season to be over. — {{ and it hasn’t even started yet!! }}

    and I am a HUUUUGE Bucs fan
    as well as a huge Jameis Winston fan.

    Wow. Don’t even know what to say anymore.
    ….. thanks Jameis.

  81. JMan5 Says:

    It’s sad we draft a guy that tears up a fan base. Giving a scumbag too much power.

  82. JabooBuc Says:

    Jeffbuc: First, paragraph’s are our friends. Jesus that’s a hard read.

    Second, i think you have it wrong as to what it means to be a puss%. How about not being accountable for your actions as an adult? If he got too drunk and made an awkward pass at a girl, then own that s*** tough guy. Don’t lie about it like a puss. Don’t try to make the girl look bad because you can’t handle your liquor.

    The pussification of this country is people like you that give people a free pass for acting like an idiot.

  83. jmarkbuc Says:


    We won’t know Kate’s true intentions until a lawsuit is filed or she seeks some kind of settlement.

    We’ve had heard twice in 2+ years from Kate. Once at the beginning, once at the end. I don’t think we hear anything more from her. Jameis better hope so.

    We’ll see…..

  84. mark2001 Says:

    “I manage people for a living. Once they lie to you then you get what you tolerate.”

    Well said..I like that, and have managed people, raised a few kids, and have worked with many different people, and I’d have to say that no truer statement has have been said on a message board.

  85. Durango 95 Says:

    If it were to come a civil lawsuit you can be certain JW would file a counterclaim meaning any judgment likely would likely be settled & sealed. Meaning we would not know which party prevailed. But, more likely what terms were negotiated onthe “courthouse steps”. This is a he said, she said case rendering any criminal prosecution extremely unlikely.

    To put it layman’s terms all the scenarios described above would simply be a cash grab on behalf of the dear (alias) Ms “Kate”

  86. mark2001 Says:

    jmark…I’d bet the deal has already been made with her already. It will probably be announced a few months from now. And that was why it took so long to put this entire puzzle together. And that was why everyone involved was very careful to follow the script given to them, and I doubt we will hear much more from any of the major parties involved in this.

  87. mark2001 Says:

    Jmark… I’d bet all the parties have already figured this all out. And that is part of the puzzle that had to be put together to make the settlement.

  88. DalvinCookRules Says:

    I’ve been a staunch supporter of Jameis for years and recently threw in the towel. What he did to this “Kate” was not serious, given the truly horrible things that men actually do to women on a daily basis (heck, if the worst thing that ever happens to my daughters is a stranger places a hand over their crotches for a few seconds, I would say I WILL TAKE THAT DEAL IN A HEARTBEAT), but….

    the more important point is his continued LYING! He says he’s grown up since 2.5 years ago, however, he STILL CONTINUES TO LIE! That is NOT what a grown up does, and that is certainly not what a real leader does.

    That point alone is enough to tell me that Jameis WILL CONTINUE to embarrass himself and the Bucs. That SICKNESS still infests him, and without professional help, he is never going to “get it”. I do think you have to get him the HELP HE NEEDS because he is too talented, too good of a person (foolish immaturity aside), and we are too invested in him.

  89. JMan5 Says:

    Falcon clearly you don’t have saughters

  92. Couch Fan Says:

    Am I the only one who finds it comical that people of such good moral character is constantly name calling like petulant children? LMAO. Keep spewing that hate choir boys. Cant wait to see Jameis tear it up this season. They are gonna be really mad then. LMAO

  93. Wayne Haddix Says:

    Let me ask this..if this hadn’t happened was it a no brainer jameis gets past the fifth year? His poor decision making is not only off the field. Check out last years Carolina and saints games. He shows playmaking ability then self destructs repeatedly. Hard Knocks showed Koetters frustration. This is not going to help. What if these same on field issues remain. He doesn’t appear to be improving. Now this pr hit happens. We are stuck with him for two more years. Regardless how it plays out the Bucs and jameis did this to themselves. We deserve better.

  94. Not there yet Says:

    Oh well can’t wait until we 4, expecting all the moralists to be rooting for another team. I mean Greg Hardy was found guilty of assault lol guess Winston should switch to MMA also. Please make your stances known because no one likes a hypocrite, I know we’ll surely hear from you when the team loses a game but they end up in the playoffs please don’t come here acting like you were a bucs fan. If one guy had to be cut for you to continue supporting the team then you probably aren’t a real fan anyway, I was simply smart enough not to buy a Winston Jersey in the first place.

  95. E6usmc Says:

    After a full night of partying do you really think Jameis was thinking straight….lets remember back to our own partying days when we did stupid things after too many drinks. We have more important things to to focus on than some young man finally out in the real word still making dumb childish decisions….he is still young! More reporting on this stupid story than the major issues happen everyday in our neighborhoods. If everyone that has put so much hate towards this guy actually put it towards the real issues here in our country we would probably see positive change…just let the guy play ball…let the childish things be delt with by the league…now get back to your perfect life where you never make wrong decisions.

  96. Iamabuc Says:

    After game 4, when he start wining games for us, all these “ministers” here, will be the first ones who are going to want Jameis to grab their junk and will be licking his jock strap. Count on it!

  97. JabooBuc Says:

    E6usmc: nobody’s beating him for being drunk although with his past he should probably put some guard rails in place since he has the means to keep himself out of trouble.

    Also, we are all well aware that there are more important things going on in the world. By that logic, there would be no use for this site.

  98. BushidoEvans Says:

    T Rex here’s the thing nobody knows you and/or if you’re a good dude, I have no reason to think you aren’t, but your worse decisions aren’t out for public consumption and maybe you’d have a story to put those things into context, dude you don’t know what happened in that car period all the info that has come out is half truth or doctored up, what was said behind closed doors or for what reason and that’s by design, you don’t know what would’ve happened if it was fought through and neither do (well yes I do, it would’ve been six games no matter What, because nobody wins these) don’t know who you people are to think you’re some kind of psychics and judge/jury/executioner based off of what you think. Or think you are so holy that you can call someone who you don’t know garbage and cast them aside or throw them away, that’s one of the major things wrong with this society, you aren’t god you don’t get to render someone useless because you say so, who are YOU? You are one of 7 billion people on this planet and in this regard You’re a football fan not a detective or a judge forming opinions off of limited evidence. Just drop it, it’s done and we will all see the fallout together, it certainly isn’t going to be controlled by you. If he’s cut I’ll understand, if he stays I’ll pull for him to get his life together…thats what a “good person” would do.

  99. BushidoEvans Says:

    And what’s all this “he was lying” he was making no comments, you literally don’t know what he was saying to NFL officials or Buc officials after it came out. He guilty for certain of one thing and that’s not reporting it after it happened, that’s the only fact in this situation.

  100. BushidoEvans Says:

    And if your stance is you don’t want him on your team because of the negative attention, I get that and I’m not mad at you for it, however all the rest of this banter is speculation and unnecessary.

  101. Rob Says:

    Db55 you are a racist person. The only one spouting racist garbage hete is you kid. Get some intelligence because you sound like a child who’s lost and very uneducated

  102. KC Says:

    If that creep ever came anywhere near my kids, I’d reunite him with his ancestors

  103. JameisNOT Says:

    Here is a simple way to put it: I have a large extended family in the Tampa Bay/ Orlando markets, many of them happen to be female and HUGE Bucs fans. My brother (also a huge Bucs Fan) ran a poll, on a family only Facebook page, in which he asked the female members who would continue to support the Bucs if they were to keep Jameis Winston on the team. Only ONE voted to keep the clown and she is know as the Family tramp. There were over 40 votes. Bottom line: it comes down to business and the Glazers are smart enough to know that the ladies buy a large percentage of Bucs merchandise along with controlling their family households with their own “Ungroped crouches”.

  104. Bucsfanman Says:

    Honestly, for now, he should probably lie low. It’s for his and the fans benefit.

  105. Walter Seidel Says:

    There is NO FREAKING WAY that ANY schools will allow AMERICA’S GROPER on campus!!!!!! It’s RIDICULOUS to even suggest that!!!!!!!

  106. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Role Model??? Jameis? LMFAO
