Bucs Clam-Up Extends To Broadcast; Nat Moore Laughs At Jameis Suspension

August 11th, 2018

Dolphins broadcaster and former Pro Bowl wide receiver Nat Moore seems to think a man getting suspended from the NFL for grabbing a female Uber driver’s crotch without permission is funny.

Just go to the 12:35 mark of the Bucs-Dolphins broadcast (the Miami-based edition) on Thursday night. Announcer Dick Stockton tells the audience that Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, has been “suspended for we’ll just say misconduct.” And that drew an immediate and strong laugh from Moore, a game analyst in the booth alongside Bob Griese.

“That’s all I’m going to say,” Stockton said next.

Moore replied, “OK.”

Classless move by Moore. What exactly is he laughing at?

Regarding the Bucs’ TV broadcast on on WFLA-TV, raise your hand if you heard why Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, was suspended for three games to start the season?

Joe sure didn’t.

Yes, announcers Ronde Barber and Chris Myers are hired by the Buccaneers, so this was no huge surprise. But heck, Joe didn’t even hear those guys give a generic reason for the suspension, you know, for the casual viewer and fan who might not have a clue.

Is that what this has come to?

What’s everyone afraid of saying?

    What’s the big deal? Just a little hassle.

  2. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Maybe Nat groped Stockton at that moment

  3. gilhealy Says:

    Atta boy, Joe. Keep it going. No need to let Jameis and his family move past this almost 3 yr old incident. You da man! Now we get to read some more wonderfully thought out comments by like minds like yours. It seems Nat and Stockton want to move on. You, not so much. Carry on.

  4. The Buc Realist Says:

    That is why it was so funny that joe was trying to imply that the league was going to do a hatchet job on JW3!!!! That joe even had a poll if the fans would trust nfl evidence in the case!!!!!!! You don’t get to speak for Joe. Find a new hobby. –Joe

  5. Kobe Faker Says:

    Jameis Winston makes bonehead dicisions

    *tapping childishly on the saints defenders helmet on the field when when jameis is not in the game nor with a helmet on

    *As the QB, Jameis headbutts a bigger defensive player when he is slow to untangle with doug martin on the ground

    *during FSU, Comes out fully dressed in uniform and helmet when he is suspended and should be in sweats


    “bonehead decisions are kinda funny”

    coming from Kobe Faker #1 JW3 fan at JBF

  6. Lamarcus Says:

    Because it is funny. The whole was funny. I laughed also

  7. Lamarcus Says:

    Sorry. The whole Ubergate thing was funny

  8. Rock Says:

    Please, Schmoe! Stop with the phony PC outrage.

    “What is he laughing at?” You pretend you don’t know. Nat laughed because the whole thing is embarrassing, and that’s what we all do when someone brings up something about another that is embarrassing. We laugh because it is a natural reaction to dealing with something that is uncomfortable.

    And it is embarrassing that Jameis, a grown man, can’t control himself. And it is embarrassing that TV commentators have to talk about this. And it is embarrassing that they have to comment on this knowing that there are young kids, too young to understand, listening to them talk about an IDIOT WHO DOES NOT KNOW AT AGE 20 SOMETHING THAT HE CAN’T GRAB A STRANGER’S GENITALS!

    So just stop with the outrage about a normal human reaction to an abnormal act by an apparently drunken, self-entitled millionaire athlete.

    I’m in orlando working a while and watched the game the other night on the Dolphins broadcast. Didnt know that was Nat Moore tho, I didnt catch the beginning. I will say its about time for Stockton to hang em up. He is nearing Deckerhoff territory, calling stuff thats just not happening.
    As far as his laugh I dont think its a topic. Of course its not funny. But theres a ton of reasons he could be laughing. Maybe someone said something in the headset. Maybe Dick tickled his feet, Stockton that is!

  10. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:


  11. Dan McLaughlin Says:

    Maybe because that’s NOT what he was suspended for, for the millionth time.

  12. Walter Seidel Says:

    Calling the announcer classless? Ok, I accept that you have an opinion on them, Joe. But shouldn’t you also call Winston classless, as HE is the one whose classlessness has caused this ENTIRE effed up situation? Oh wait…it was a “hassle”…or “hooey”. Got it.

  13. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Don’t worry Joe, I am pretty sure it will be brought up when his suspension
    officially starts.

  14. Stanglassman Says:

    They also said that they thought maybe Jameis was over his off field troubles’ leading everyone to believe it just occurred this offseason. Maybe they had no idea when it happened. The coverage was bad all around they spent almost the entire third quarter talking to team CEO barley covering the game.

  15. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Chris Meyer and Dick Stockton are both nearing the end of their career. That’s
    what you get when you are a bad team.

  16. Gambelero Says:

    I had to watch the Miami broadcast. Terrible. Particularly when they went to split screen for about half the second half and listened to propaganda from the Phins GM. Okay, so they want to get some stuff in about the stadium refit, but why split screen to show the GM for twenty minutes and why ignore the game and stop all commentary.

    Anyway, I got the exact same impression as Joe when the Dolphin broadcasters brought up Jameis’ suspension.

  17. ben Says:

    Joe , please explain why you would call Winston America’s qb please ??.. He had issues at school which paid out large $$ and now again has sexual charges in the nfl . He is not rated as a top 10 qb but all his weapons so far either. I don’t think Winston would get many votes as an exemplary man so isn’t calling him America’s qb is an insult to nfl fans and to the general public? Joe has called Jameis this since before he was drafted, even before he finished playing college football and the Bucs had the No. 1 overall pick. Joe’s not going to stop now to placate the people who don’t like it. Joe likes the nickname. –Joe

  18. Mike Johnson Says:

    Muchtodo…bout nothin!

  19. jmarkbuc Says:

    Why would anyone be surprised that homer commentators would have a chuckle at JW and the Bucs expense?

    At least they said “misconduct, and we’ll leave it at that”

    Could’ve said “sexual misconduct” or any number of other things. Somewhere down the line this season it’s gonna happen again. Just some of the shame JW brought down us... A) Joe is not faux anything. B) hassle has many definitions. –Joe

    I’m surprised at Joe’s faux outrage…Joe has been calling this thing just a hassle. Is that funny?

    Then again, he calls JW America’s QB. ANd since we eeked out a pre season win on Thursday, maybe Joe will bring back “winning Coach Koetter” that ones a peach too…..

  20. JimBuc2 Says:

    Enough trolling Jameis about Ubergate. I personally could care less. To me, this is a very large tempest in a very small teapot. Sure, crotch-grabbing is uncool in all respects, but I don’t give a flyin’ flip. Why? because I watch the NFL to see football, not to endure mind numbing PC psycho babble. Strap on your jock and hit somebody damn it. That’s what I want to see. For all your holier-than-thou hypocrites I offer a quote from Christ Himself. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” JW3 is the best Buc QB ever to put on our colors. I expect the trolls will quickly change their tune when Winston hoists the Lombardi trophy.

  21. WillieG Says:

    He was laughing at the way Stockton worded his description. BFD.

  22. unbelievable Says:

    I mean what do you want them to say about it?

    They typically try to not delve into details like that on air.

  23. The Buc Realist Says:


    I think you deleted what I typed too early!!!!! Did you hear the SiriusXm training camp, the interview with O.J Howard????? They asked about JW3 and he starts to answer and then it quickly jumps to commercials!!!!!!!!!

    Conspiracy????? Do I speak for joe now??????? Wake up buc fans!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. I Bleed Pewter Says:

    The truth? ..I don’t think they give a rats @ss what Joe thinks. We wouldn’t even be in this mess if not for Jameis. You really wanna know why he laughed? Because the face of our franchise had been suspended for the most ridiculous childish behavior and they were probably asked not to give much commentary on national TV. How many other non-Buc fans do you think quipped in disgust?

  25. Walter Seidel Says:

    JimBuc2…..do you even SEE the irony in your beat-your-chest statement….”For all your holier-than-thou hypocrites I offer a quote from Christ Himself.” ???? LOL !!!!!!

    And if you defenders of America’s Crotch-Grabber have your panties in a wad over the Dolphin homers, just WAIT for the regular season!!! ESPECIALLY week four in Chicago!!! It is going to be BRUTAL !!!! And ya know what?………deservedly so.

  26. adam from ny Says:

    when the announcers broadcast from the booth, their hands are often below the table…more often than not thy are playing “pocket pool”…


  27. Mbfists Says:

    Bottom line is he put himself in the position for people to take jabs at him for his off field moments.

  28. Reach87 Says:

    Nothing has changed. Plenty of innuendo (that translates to no proof of exactly what happened, what was it, 2-3 years ago?). NFL made its ruling and the TEAM appears to be following the process required to get more wins. I hope they stick to it and we stay healthy. Also hope those that hate the team, owners, stadium, coaches, etc. go on and openly root for another team now. Go Bucs!

  29. Rebel16 Says:

    “JOEZO 🤡…!!!”

  30. Buccfan37 Says:

    Nothing like watching preseason football with a little peyton place soap opera thrown in to titilate the football hating public forced to watch waiting for a derogatory Winston slam in an attempt to appear relevant.

  31. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:


  32. Barksdale Says:

    He’s also UF alum. Doubt those guys like Jameis.

  33. Marc Says:

    America’s Groper brought this all on himself. Anyone care to spare some tissue paper for our guy Joe here?

  34. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Maybe it was because they did not want to damage the ratings? Mountain meet mole hill.

  35. NewTampaChris Says:

    I seriously doubt that many “casual viewers and fans who may not have a clue” were listening intently to the announcers in the first preseason game.

  36. Jman5 Says:

    JimBuc JABoob will only hoist the Lombardi trophy on Madden 18 or 19.

  37. JimBuc2 Says:

    Walter, what irony? For all the vitriol you spout I just have to wonder if you have ever even read Scripture, let alone understand it. Beat my chest? Um, no. I want to see my Bucs beat up on their opponent. So, you really think like that? Well, it’s a great big world we live in; plenty of room for everybody, even PC pinheads such as yourself. Do us all a favor and troll some other team. Football is all about violent domination, it ain’t about holding hands and singing Kumbaya. Dweeb.

  38. Walter Seidel Says:

    Dweeb. Who espouses Christ. And asks if I read Scripture. What a joke. Move along imbecile.

  39. Walter Seidel Says:

    Dweeb? Who espouses Jesus? And asks if I read scripture in the same post that states “football is all about violent domination, it ain’t about holding hands and singing Kumbaya”??? Thankfully, these posts do not have an “edit” option, because I kinda like that one wafting endlessly…..

  40. Walter Seidel Says:

    What irony? You espouse the Savior, ask if I read Scripture, and the go one to say “Football is all about violent domination, it ain’t about holding hands and singing Kumbaya. Dweeb.” Thankfully, JBF doesn’t have an “edit” option, so this gem can waft in eternity.

  41. JimmyT Says:

    Yeah Kobe , coming out dressed in college is a real bad thing. The media and fans in this town probably accomplished their mission of Jameis one day leaving, not because the Bucs want him gone because I’m sure Jameis will want out. Jameis will win big in the NFL that’s for sure. When the Bucs try to sign him long term Jameis will do a couple of Franchise tags and then be in his way to another team. This incident happened 3 years ago & the NFL suspended him for only 3 games. Everyone has this illusion that the 3 games was negotiated if Jameis didn’t appeal! That is pure speculation. U can appeal all u want just like EE in Dallas. He ended up serving his SIX GAME suspension in the same season. Jameis is healthy and with a good D & running game u all will see how good he is. One thing for sure Jameis will NEVER FORGET Tom Jones, Martin Fennaly for openly campaigning the Glazer to cut him. Don’t think for a second that he doesn’t read some of the fans HATRED on social media. While he is here for a year or two I hope he does well and when he leaves I hope he wins a Super Bowl!!

  42. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Jimmy T

    If I’m not mistaken it could still be six games if he doesn’t complete his counseling/therapy program…

    Awesome that our QB is in therapy…he certainly needs it.

  43. BuccYa Says:

    Rock and WillieG got it right. Nothing less , nothing more.

  44. Dapostman Says:

    I feel sorry for Buc fans who still have Winston Derangement Syndrome. You know who you are. You better seek counseling or something because Winston is maturing right in front of your very eyes. Problem for you bible thumpers is like Lot’s wife you will turn to stone as you have to witness the maturity on and off the field with your very eyes. Maybe you should just save yourself the humiliation and get stoned and loosen up.

    #Get After It!

  45. James Walker Says:

    He is laughing at a baseless claim from a cab driver without any evidence of being true that is being compared to in the MSM to Ray Rice, Big Ben, and Ezekiel Elliott.

  46. Walter Seidel Says:

    JimmyT is the perfect example of being a Winston fan, instead of a Buc fan. I try to promote what is best for the TEAM. Guys like him promote one crotch-grabbing player, with comments like “when he leaves I hope he wins a Super Bowl!!”
