Updates On Jameis Murals, Videos

July 26th, 2018


So, a couple of things Joe speculated about in recent days seem to be accurate.

ESPN Bucs beat reporter Jenna Laine had a little bit of scoopage Wednesday evening. Both have to do with images, real and imagined, about America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

Of course when the player murals on went up on the side of the Den of Depression recently, the mural of Jameis came down. Joe thought that was possibly a move by the corporate wing of the Bucs to appease sponsors.

Laine hints that is exactly what happened. Her Bucs sources told her that not having Jameis’ mural on the stadium is for “optics” and is no way a reflection of how the team feels about him.

Additionally, the promotional videos the Bucs put out without Jameis, Joe thought given the timeline, that it was possibly the Bucs actually recorded videos of Jameis but never released them. Laine’s sources confirmed this as well. In fact, Laine added it is not out of the question the Bucs could release the promotional videos of Jameis at a later date.

You can see the full newsy video of Laine’s report below.

    Sucks not to have Jameis for the first few games, but I see this as a very rude awakening for him. He is now a father and realizes more than ever how his decisions, no matter how small they may seem at the time, have a big impact. That’s a lesson he can use to his advantage off the field as well as on it.

    I don’t condone his decision making, though I do hope that he can learn from it and continue to grow as a person and player. Hence why I am still backing him 100% as he returns week 4.

    But know your limits pal. Lady Luck grows tired quickly and if you find yourself relying on her input to save you from the poor situations you put yourself in, well that will lead to a much more rude awakening than a 3 game suspension.

    Go Bucs!!

    Yeah yeah whatever 😂

  3. DB55 Says:

    Are those tentacles in the mural’s background? Maybe crab legs? Idk

  4. Wright Says:

    That’s exactly what it is. “Salt in an open wound.”

    Bucs will show his face in team media productions soon enough, but at least you have to hold off for a little.

  5. Yusef Says:

    Good to hear he’s starting to talk to teammates about all of this crap one on and such, at least he’s doing that

  6. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Hey everyone loves a good ole I told ya so.

  7. Cyberdilemma Says:

    Jameis who?

  8. Buc believer Says:

    Sure am glad Adam didn’t throw Eve out when she brought home some apples.

  9. Stanglassman Says:

    The Jameis haters will not like this story.

  10. Defense Rules Says:

    @Joe … “Her Bucs sources told her that not having Jameis’ mural on the stadium is for “optics” and is no way a reflection of how the team feels about him.” Aaah yes, and the ‘spin’ begins.

  12. Pete I Says:

    pointless article

  13. Onetrickpony Says:

    Source…….everybody has a “source” these days.
    My “source” tells me Jameis is still the # 1 peckerwood,
    He caused this mess to be worse than it could have been.

  14. Bird Says:

    Agree. Who cares. Another pointless article that relates to jameis.

    I mean you see a picture of lavonte or marpet and you think the article will be about some other person then jameis …

    And the article turns into the Joe’s asking these players about jameis. Give it a rest. Let’s focus on the rest of the team that will be playing day 1 for a change. Groundhog Day here. Let’s talk about the same person over and over and over again. The same person that has put this season in jeopardy. Do I hate Jameis. ? Nope he is a buc. Just getting tired of the same song and dance

    Wait. I forgot. He moves the needle ?

    can we get some articles about the bucs. Like the beckwith article was good to read about.

    And yes the bucs will not release videos of Jameis until the dust clears and he starts winning some games . Which I fully support.

  15. Scurvy Dogs Says:

    I also noticed that, in the pictures showing veterans arriving to camp on the Bucs website, Jameis is omitted.

  16. Buchead5588 Says:

    Jameis is the future ppl need to get it through there head support MyQB#3

  17. WestminsterCoBucsFan Says:

    Good to know that jameis’ future with the team isn’t as big a question mark as many think…
    those who say the article is pointless clearly share the same flawed point of view; they hated the guy before he was drafted or they don’t know sh!t about football…need I remind you of those jersey sales???
    The majority seems to back him, as does the team and organization. Quit your crying about joes articles and go away, true fans know you’ll be gone soon enough

  18. Walter Seidel Says:

    Speaking of optics…..”America’s QB” isn’t exactly a good optic, Joe.

  19. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Jameis will not speak abut this to the media……Glazers & Koetter & Licht will not…..only players who are asked, and they will all be asked…..

    To say that taking his picture down and not releasing promotional videos of him is not a reflection on how the team feels about him is the ultimate spin….of course it is a reflection about how they feel.
    They may not feel strong enough to cut him or trade him….but they feel they need to hide him. Obviously, he is temporarily no longer the face of the franchise.

  20. Not there yet Says:

    Worse take fans in the NFL. Ya don’t deserve a football team, you keep rooting against one player your rooting against the team. None of you idiots would admit the truth which is you want Winston to have a bad season. You haters shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce. In the end your just mad about all the money he will make in the nfl

  21. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    Hate to be this guy, but those are not “murals”. They are banners or signs.

  22. Bucsfanman Says:

    I can’t wait until we get to the point where we don’t have to continue to talk about Jameis’ issues all the time or ask other players about Jameis.
    I’ve got Jameis fatigue!

  23. lightningbuc Says:

    “not having Jameis’ mural on the stadium is for “optics” and is no way a reflection of how the team feels about him.”


    Huh? A team has “AMERICA’S QB”, yet doesn’t put him on the side of the stadium so that someone like Cameron Brate can go up, but that isn’t a reflection of how management feels about him? LOL! You Jaboo slurpers are funny people.

  24. Jman5 Says:

    If you have to remove the ‘face’ from your stadium for optics then you have a problem.

  25. Jman5 Says:

    I have reproduced and I have two highly intelligent sons who will be taught to respect women and never cheat/or grope. And the worlds a better place with them in it. Shhhh

  26. Dan Says:

    Instead of releasing a promotional video with Winston they should release us from having to deal with this guy anymore. We are a bad team with players owners and fans full of excuse. Let’s move on. Go Bucs

  27. Not there yet Says:


    Being taught to respect women is basic, your a parent your stopped to say your kids are intelligent. Guess not only are you going after Winston for what you THINK happened I guess your also calling his father a failure. I’m pretty sure parents taught their kids not to drink and drive but all the DUI in this country are due to failed parenting sure that’s gotta be it.

    If you felt the need to reply directly to my comment then it was meant specifically for you, your the fake fan I’m calling out, anyone else cares to admit they are a hater because that was way too easy. Off-season is over it’s football time let it go and focus on winning or go get another team. For some reason you think his teammates can stand by him but someone so irrelevant can keep taking about something over 2 years old. Seriously go get a life

  28. ATLBuc Says:

    You’re teaching your sons not to grope? There’s nothing wrong with groping if you’re married and your partner permitsbit it.

  29. Jman5 Says:

    Well that much is true Atl

  30. ben Says:

    cut Winston// what has he shown=nothing special !

  32. Godeep66 Says:

    Let’s go Bucs!!!!!

  33. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    Team Jameis all day everyday!

  34. David Lee Roth Says:

    [Love ya Dave, but advocating the execution of a Bucs player won’t fly. Now somehow find a way to get the Van Halen boys to relent and let Michael Anthony back in the band. — Joe]

  35. SoFloBuc Says:

    Like I said, purely a PR move

  36. stpetebucsfan Says:

    To steal and paraphrase the famous phrase from Betty Davis…

    “Buckle up boys it’s going to be a bumpy night (season)”

    Regardless of how you feel about Jameis…any objective viewer sees that this is a HUGE deal.

    Just look at the remarks here on JBF. Half for…half against…perhaps a quarter who are Jameis cultists…a quarter who’ve never liked Jameis to begin with…

    Whatever look at the comment counts when Joe does a Jameis thread. 3-4X more than other topics. Clearly this is where the interest lies.

    Sadly though look not only at the division but how sharp and passionate!!!!

    People who disagree with someone’s take feel the need to hurl insult, ad hom, all manner of straw men.

    Yeah I’m a snowflake so can someone please explain why ANYBODY feels the need to hurl some of the most insulting comments at another poster simply for having a take different than theirs? Really?

    I disagree with plenty here but when I feel the need to return with insults I quickly realize this is a poster I shouldn’t bother even engaging. If I disagree with a respected poster then I enjoy the debate because I know the level they’re going to respond. Some of my best debates have been with guys with whom I agree over 90% of the time…but when you debate those guys you know they are going to remain rational.

    Have a great posting experience and remember…OPTIMISM RULES.

    I’ve been hearing all this news on Jameis & I agree w/ everybody hammering him about the wrong situation he put himself in BUT this was 2 yrs ago. Nothing (that we know) has happened since almost 3 yrs this incident had happened.

    So isn’t it fair to also point out how much Jameis has done in the community & being a respectable citizen since. Reporters are reporting like this JUST happened lol. Yes the news just happened but not the event. Gotta be smarter & more fair than that!
