Jameis Reaches Civil Settlement Agreement With Uber Driver

November 27th, 2018

Was it a money grab or a crotch grab?

We’ll never know. 

For those who forgot, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has a pending civil suit against him for alleged inappropriate sexual touching of a female Uber driver while in the drive-thru line of a fast-food restaurant in Arizona back in March 2016.

The NFL investigation into the matter got Jameis a three-game suspension to start this season and a list of behavior demands from NFL strongman Roger Goodell, despite no arrest or witnesses to the alleged impropriety.

TMZ Sports today says Jameis and the Uber driver have agreed to a settlement, per papers filed in federal court.

Two years later, the woman — who goes by “Kate P.” in legal docs — filed suit against the Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback.

In new docs filed in federal court in Arizona on Nov. 26, the woman’s lawyer says “Plaintiff has reached an agreement with Defendant to resolve her claims.”

“The parties are in the process of finalizing a settlement agreement but need approximately 10 days to complete this process.”

A wise but depressing move by Jameis.

He needed to get this cleared up so his career could move forward smoothly. But it’s another tacit admission of guilt in another terribly sleazy situation. The Jameis faithful won’t get their day in court, where the Uber driver, with no substantial evidence, would have somehow had to prove Jameis did something wrong.

Up next, the Panthers and legions of Bucs fans shaking their collective heads.

    we ALL know. the only reason it blew up was his lies

  2. America’s turnover machine Says:

    He lied to the press about this situation. It’s very obvious he molested a girl

  3. Lamarcus Says:

    Both. Crotch and money grab. Grab a crotch and you have to pay. Might as well got a hooker JW.

  4. Robert Says:

    his ONLY consistent quality is his steadfast lack of character.

    thoughts and prayers to all those that have suffered we have not heard about.

    remember, most victims don’t come forward.

  5. LocalJoker Says:

    Who cares? Play ball!

  6. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    banned from uber for life….awesome, and its pretty funny since nfl players get free rides wherever they want esp when they are schwasted

  7. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    This really sucks for fans like me who have defended him since the FSU rape allegations.

  8. Eric Says:

    Last step in putting it behind him.

    I guess that “victim” changed her mind and decided to go ahead and grab some cash. She initially indicated that wasn’t going to happen.

    But we all know what greased the wheel.

  9. Season Is Over Says:

    Why the third person kept secret until the end?

  10. Dooshlarue Says:

    Man, what a hassle.

  11. LakeLand Says:

    He could never put this behind him

    These things stays with him for the rest of his life

    Would any of you trust him, with your daughter?

  12. DaPostman Says:

    When they say it’s not about the money, remember kids it’s always about the money. Expensive lesson but hopefully a lesson learned.

  13. miken Says:

    Who saw this coming? Guy suspended in college for yelling grab her in the p. Then suspended in nfl for actually doing it.

  14. Eric Says:

    It stayed with him for a three game suspension, now water under the bridge.

    Now he can concentrate on continuing his excellent play from Sunday.

  15. Robert Says:

    anyone ever think that it happened, then after she found out who it was she reported it to protect other women given his history???

    and she asked for what, 75 grand? that aint $hit! and the attorney got a chunk of that. more like she asked to be paid for the time this has consumed in her life.

    you people turning on her and defending this thug are an embarassment to the human race.

  16. miken Says:

    Ridiculous to blame Dirk for playing Fitz. If Jameis doesn’t do this crap then Fitz isn’t even out there the 1st 3games and Dirk never has to think about who the starter is.

  17. Dewey Selmon Says:

    America’s Groper

  18. Lamarcus Says:

    Man. Here comes the Ruddy poo Angel Gently Soft ppl of the world who comes to change the world to make it a better place. These same ppl talking crap about JW troubles probobly have more rape cases than him. U know I’m talking to you

    This is why we should stick to the football part of football.

  19. Couch Fan Says:

    Let me just say before all the start with the “Why would an innocent man settle?” question. Just remember the same can be said for her, “Why would a victim settle for a measly amount of money, that doesnt hurt him in the slightest, instead of justice? It goes both ways.

  20. T REX Says:

    Jameis the real victim here. He’s just misunderstood. He’s really a great guy. Lol.


  21. LakeLand Says:

    It seems like she’s a honest hard working young female
    Who was groped by an NFL player

    I could never respect these type of people
    I don’t care who they are
    Even if my own son does it, I wouldn’t support him

  22. Buc4evr Says:

    It’s a settlement Joe, for reasons that we will never fully know. It is not a tacit admission of guilt. That’s your opinion, just like it’s Joe’s opinion.–Joe Insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, and business people settle every single day because litigation is too costly and harmful to persue. Let the hate flow…. lol.

    Jameis the real victim here
    Amen brother amen 🙏🏽

  24. AlteredEgo Says:

    No interest..it’s history….I am only concerned with his play on the field !…he had one of his glass half full games last Sunday

  25. Eric Says:

    Foregone conclusion the case would quietly settle. No way jameis’ lawyers would allow a public trial to take place, which would have been right in the middle of his contract year in 2019.

    Wise move.

    The non-reporting money grabber fell into some cash. Silly case if there ever was one. Goodell just caved into all the “metoo” nonsense.

  26. BillyG Says:

    Actually, the NFL knows more than all, and it was six games taken down to three, and it looks like Winston still didn’t settle by the SOL expiration–but finally did. The only “sleazy situation” in BOTH cases Joe talks about are the ones Winston created himself. The Uber driver did her job…so the NFL found. Here is the sorriest line in the clip above:
    “The Jameis faithful won’t get their day in court, where the Uber driver, with no substantial evidence, would have somehow had to prove Jameis did something wrong.”

    Sad how Joe somehow knows there is “no substantial evidence” but the NFL lawyers concluded there was certainly plenty. What does Joe know the NFL doesn’t? It seems apparent though that the NFL, as is perhaps Jameis especially, are glad for their image he WON’T have a day in court. Shame on Joe. This isn’t a gold digger lawsuit. What will Jameis get away with next? How will Joe defend him next?
    What exactly did Joe defend here? Nothing. You might want to re-read what Joe wrote. And as far as evidence against Jameis, no matter how you spin it, it’s a he said she said matter.–Joe

  27. Buc4evr Says:

    Not really Joe, it’s a matter of law.

  28. Kansas95Buc Says:

    just another reason for men to go mgtow. I highly doubt this woman could have proof of what she said happen. the court of public opinion is out of control

  29. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Well no disrespect to any victims of sexual assault but this is good news for Jameis going forward. He needs to concentrate on honing his craft. This distraction (no disrespect) had to be heavy on his mind.

  30. Robert Says:

    the proof is in his lies you stupid mf’s

  31. LakeLand Says:

    Why put yourself in that position

    Drunk in public
    Sitting next to a stranger in a car
    Late at night

    These are uncharacteristic actions of a team leader

  32. Eric Says:

    If this didn’t involve a rich NFL player no one would ever have heard of it and no lawyer would have taken the case.

    And no prosecutor would ever file on the nonsense.

    A shakedown and money grab, pure and simple.

  33. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I bet every UBER driver has a hidden video recorder after this. Not to say that maybe Kate P already had video. Some of you who claim she has no evidence could be very wrong.

  34. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Who has ever had the idea to grab your uber driver? And then make that the leader of an NFL franchise making that choice to throw it all away

  35. 813bucboi Says:

    now keep your hands to yourself!!!!!!!!

    P.S. FSU SUCKS!!!!!!!….41-14….WIPE THAT OFF YOUR FACE!!!!!!!


  36. LakeLand Says:

    Poor, poor judgement

    You expect more from your franchise QB

  37. SteelStudBuc Says:

    That’s why he wears the glove on the left hand. Passenger seat groping glove. No fingerprints.

  38. BillyG Says:

    @Jean: “Not to say that maybe Kate P already had video. Some of you who claim she has no evidence could be very wrong.” Exactly. Worse, some out there like a someone on local radio have said it is “overblown.” Sad.

    Jameis will never get out from under this. And given his penchant for being unable to learn from mistakes, I’d not risk it happening again.

  39. Eric Says:

    the Gator reference just shows that most of the Jameis hate is just butt hurt Gator fans who still can’t get over he wiped the field with them in college.

    In any event, the silly non-case is officially over.

    Good news.

  40. Matt14 Says:

    I’m glad it’s over. He needed to put this behind him. Guilty or not, most of these lawsuits simply get settled out of court. He needs to look forward now and play ball.

    Hopefully a lesson learned the first time it happened or the second?
    Cause when you drop this deep wisdom on us maybe you should be more specific.

  42. ben Says:

    after this year lets hope Winston on trading block and bucs have a new qb .

  43. SilverBuc Says:

    Damn, it really was a money grab huh. At first she said it’s not about the money, then it was about the money. But she wanted him to be more honest! and demanded! a trial by Jury…and now is $ettling the ca$e. Seen all I need to see.

  44. Howard Cosell Says:

    It’s no secret Howard is pis*ed off at the owners,
    but, like a co-dependent woman, he always comes back.
    Howard can’t quit on the Bucs.

    Here’s hoping the Bucs can’t quit on Howard.

    It goes without saying how mind-bogglingly positive it would be for the Bucs to finish strong. Howard has already gone on record saying the Bucs would be foolish to change coaches again. Koetter is the best we’ve had since Gruden and the passing stats are off the richter scale.

    Please…please…find some way to raise the defensive play, find a run game and finish strong!

  45. BillyG Says:

    Joe says: “What exactly did Joe defend here? Nothing. You might want to re-read what Joe wrote. And as far as evidence against Jameis, no matter how you spin it, it’s a he said she said matter.–Joe”

    You are heavily defending Winston with a wild assumption there is “no substantial evidence” (it’s really not a wild assumption at all. there are some lawyers here who comment. Perhaps some of them will invest the time to explain). –Joe and the driver would have to “somehow prove” (as if she couldn’t)–as if wishing it could go to court (as Jameis lovers privately breathe a sigh of relief). Hey, you could fairly claim it was “he said she said” before the NFL completed their investigation and levied the suspension. But not now. The alleged roughly 4-second crime is a pure he-said-she-said situation. There is no debating that. Everything else is a lot of interesting noise. –Joe

  46. Petty Officer Buc Says:


    You can’t even get a hooker now without a shakedown, just ask Warren Sapp

  47. Howard Cosell Says:

    Oh yeah…congrats to Erica for the huge payday!
    Get while the gettin’s good, right?


  48. Howard Cosell Says:

    Sorry I meant Kate (there’s so many)…

  49. Buc4Life Says:

    In a drive-thru line, at a Taco Bell if memory serves? Jameis already has said he was boozing it hard that night. My bet is that he was handing over a $20 bill for the food and dropped it, and since he was drunk, reached for it where it landed – in her lap. Could be an innocent explanation. After all, only 3 games from the league screams that they weren’t convinced that her story held up. Just thinking out loud… Anyway, I’m convinced that he’s matured quite a bit now and that questionable behavior is a thing of the past – having a wife and kid does that for young men. It did the trick for me and I’ll bet the same for many of Joe’s faithful readers! I’m still rooting for the guy for his youth and potential.

  50. Iron Wombat Says:

    Peak #metoo, no evidence, no police report, etc. I don’t believe her. I don’t believe kinsman either. So really the whole is he guilty or not depends on how you already feel about Jameis. If you hate him, he’s guilty as sin, if you like a woman to produce evidence to back up her claim then he’s probably just getting shaken down for some cash.

  51. Pittsshore Says:

    Well at least he paid this one off with his own cash and not FSU money. Felicia, Shut Up money is the real FSU acronym meaning. BTW: the coward is still out drinking HEAVILY. Another lie of his.

  52. BillyG Says:

    From the NFL report: “a comprehensive investigation that included interviews with several persons, including the driver, Winston and others with relevant information” and “also examined an extensive amount of other evidence, including telephone records, business records, data from electronic devices and other communications.”

    Doesn’t sound like “no substantive evidence” here. Not a “he said she said.”

    If I were driving lunatics around town, I’d record it.

    Unless folks are saying the NFL is lying, which is certainly their right (some think the World Trade Center wasn’t attacked by terrorists, after all. Looks to me like Winston may have gotten a great (very lucky) deal out of this.

  53. Iron Wombat Says:

    Also if anyone is using well he was suspended as some sort of sign of guilt. The NFL changed after Ray Rice. Rice’s biggest crime wasn’t punching his baby mamma in face it was making Roger Goodell look stupid. Dude went from 2 games to a lifetime ban once Goodell got embarrassed and had to start answering uncomfortable questions at those fancy Manhattan parties he goes to, after that the NFL just basically suspends everyone to avoid having the commissioner look like an idiot again.

  54. Buc1987 Says:

    I just scrolled the comments real quick.

    Didn’t we all say the same shyte like 3 months ago?

    I’m sure no ones changed their opinion one way or the other….

  55. SilverBuc Says:

    That sounds like liable Pitts, bwdik.

  56. BillyG Says:

    How much of that money to get Winston off the hook came from season tix holders?

  57. SilverBuc Says:

  62. jjbucfan Says:

    Does anyone know how Robert feels about Jameis, I’m not sure, I can’t tell. Same comments 10 times a thread, every thread no matter who it is about. Get a life, fella, we know how you feel and nothing will ever change that. You are entitled to your opinions but please stop trying to shove them down our throats.

  63. tmaxcon Says:

    you anti jameis losers will be sucking down crap sandwiches after 3 wins a couple of super bowls elsewhere. won’t take long after leaving tampa to make the underachieving has-beens you losers call legends look like the bums they truly are.

  64. stpetebucsfan Says:

    75,000 is called getting off cheap. It’s not “necessarily” an admission of guilt.

    I’ve never been the guy here who defended JW’s reprehensible actions. What he did was wrong…he’s now making the final payment for his mistake after an off season of horrid PR.

    But too much was made of the “alleged” crime, largely because of JW’s horrible FSU off field rep. His past colored this entire episode. You can whine about that being unfair but it is what it is.

    What disturbs me is JW has never really apologized to the fans and his teammates nearly enough. Perhaps that was a legal decision since the case was still alive.

    OK so now after the season hold one final presser where JW says…I truly apologize to my fans and teammates….I did NOT behave like a leader in Arizona. I cannot be out in public at 3AM blackout drunk with a convicted felon…leaders have responsibilities …I’ve learned my lesson…this is the last time I say anything about it. I close with simply stating I’ve learned my lesson and I’m incredibly sorry and embarrassed.

  65. OneBuc55 Says:

    The truth is, we’ll never know what really happened…

    I have a daughter so I’ll never condone this kind of behavior; and if she was truly victimized that night, shame on Jameis…That being said, because of years of media coverage (even a documentary) the [email protected] alligation is well known by people who don’t follow sports at all…

    He’ll never get the benefit of the doubt in these kind of situations; he’s easily exploitable and it was easy $$$ for Kate P Uber driver… I think this was the right move on the part of Jameis and his legal team..You lie and you learn, now he can turn the page and move on…

  66. satchseven Says:

    a shakedown roger goddell set all these guys up to be ripped off by scammers .

  67. DaPostman Says:

    Joseph Mamma,

    First this female Uber driver said she wasn’t looking for money just an apology.
    So that’s out the window now isn’t it.

    Second the lesson would be if you put yourself in a bad situation IE drinking late at night it may come back to cost you plenty. I do not know if Winston is innocent or not and he never copped to either so all i know is this gal sued and he is paying. If he was home or not drinking maybe this stuff never happens?

  68. Jaywill Says:

    He didnt lie. He only told them about the Uber ride he remembered with another female driver. He was indeed in the backseat. It wasn’t until he was told of the second female uber driver on the way back to hotel is where he told the league he didn’t remember her because he had been drinking.

  69. JimmyJack Says:

    Get it out now haters because the rest of the world will be moving on now that it resolved.

    Was a very disheartening thing that this guy did. He should also thanks his lucky stars the consequences weren’t worse. No need for us to dwell on it……..but some will.

  70. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    NFL didn’t give him a choice but to settle. Remember the NFL statement on his suspension?

    “In addition, a future violation of the personal conduct policy will result in more substantial discipline, including a potential ban from the NFL.”

    If he would have gone to trial to prove his innocence, he could have been banned depending on the result.

    The NFL stripped him of his right to face his acusor.

  71. Jaywill Says:

    Robert OJ’s son did it. Oj had bad joints no way he could kill both of them. He moved to slow. That doesnt mean oj didnt show up to the crime scene and left to covered up what his son did.

  72. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Personally, I have my doubts as to his guilt. However, even if he is guilty, I do not think it s a big deal. I’ve been groped without my permission many times, and I never cried assault. Because it wasn’t.

    It was improper, but not assault.

  73. Jaywill Says:

    Its funny while she was saying I’m not looking for money publicly she was asking for a settlement privately.

    Amen brother amen 🙏🏽

    That was all sarcasm my friend. Winston is garbage.

  75. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    When it comes right down to it, no one here can be sure of his guilt or innocence. All the NFL could prove is that he was in the car. All this settlement proves is that he’s smart. Civil lawsuits do not require guilt.

  76. Not there yet Says:

    I laughed so hard when she said it wasn’t about the money then when and got the same lawyer who went after money in college for something that couldn’t be proved.

    Fast forward that’s one time in college he was accused and once in the pros. Innocent or guilty does not matter, she got her money and they both get to move on but Winston that’s it there cannot be a thirdly time dude even if he gets caught in a clear money grab and the woman is exposed for it. At that point his common sense will be attacked even more and he’ll be finished and even if he’s targeted it’ll be his fault for not preparing. Married men with good intentions won’t get caught up. Fly straight Winston because whatever happens from here is onbyou

  77. Jonathan Lipnicki Says:

    You’ve mentioned time and again you’ve been groped many times Petey. D. Whether it was a sneaky uncle or a tranny it’s really none of our business. Winston needed this situation behind him as he’s at the crossroads of his career.

  78. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I also do not think Jameis should apologize for anything going forward. It was revealed that he did indeed address the team and apologize to them when he came back. But he owes the fans nothing at all. Why should he when they turned on him without proof of guilt?

    Best to just forget about it now.

  85. TampaTown Says:

    A settlement is not an admission of guilt. Like JBF says it is a total he said/she said 4 second situation that IMO, was not that big of a deal. He was punished, did his time, now let it go. Judge him going forward. Amendment 4 did pass. Yes it restored voting rights to felons but it’s about not punishing someone forever for a past mistake.

  96. JimmyJack Says:

    Why are y’all still trying to argue if he’s guilty or not? The dude accepted a suspension and now is accepting liability.

    WAKE UP…….That makes him guilty. Maybe not technically but nobody gives a bleep about that. All they care about is perception and the verdict on that is guilty.

    Nobody outside of Tampa is arguing guilt since they already precieve him guilty. The only argument is whether Bucs should invenst in a QB with issues.

  108. America's Commenter Says:

    The NFL investigation into the matter got Jameis a three-game suspension to start this season and a list of behavior demands from NFL strongman Roger Goodell, despite no arrest or witnesses to the alleged impropriety.

    The NFL, like many employers, rightfully holds players to a higher standard for personal conduct that the criminal justice system. The NFL did a private investigation into the matter and found the victim’s claims credible, at least more credible than Winston and his entourage.

    Was it a money grab? Possibly, but one would expect a money grab claim to have been filed right away. The victim had let this matter go until the #MeToo movement empowered her to come forward. The civil suit timing seems like it was filed in response to Winston’s lies and carefully worded semi-apology, as a way to hold him legally and/or financially responsible for his actions.

    I understand that Winston’s motivation to settle the suit out of court rather than have this play out in a public trial, but I would expect a man of integrity to fight to the end of the earth to protect his good name.

    He grabbed her crotch, she grabbed his wallet. Seems fair

    Enjoy the last win of the year. 4-12. 3rd overall pick. New QB

  115. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ Your posts are always so uplifting lol

  116. Jean Lafitte Says:


    Maybe it was meant to be tongue and cheek, I get your gesture with the glory be to God but words on paper become literal. In the future give context, like i.e. <— sarcasm intended. …sure would help. Except my apology

  117. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Both IMO.

    Pretty sure he definitely reached for her vagina as she described. And then he immediately backed off when she didn’t reciprocate.

    I think he likely doesn’t even remember this event because he was black out drunk.

    I also think he did not rape or sexually assault anyone at FSU.

    I know what your talking about. I have a women who had poor performance through her work duties and my employees put extra pressure on me to cut her loose. When she knew it was time- last mistake- she called harrassment. I did it anyway and I got turned in to the ethics department. I did win that case tho

  119. BucTown Says:

    Best thing about a thread like this is that it helps identify the morons on this board – not that it was ever that hard. And just so there’s no ambiguity, those of you calling it a straight up money grab are the morons.

  120. Matt from BC Says:

    Jameis Winston is THE VICTOM!! Of a women who took ADVANTGE of himself being. PRO ATHLETE for the SECOND time. Poor guy’s luck may have caused him his career as a Buccaneer. We’ve waited too long for our QB and the USA’s garbage legal system has boned him again. Hope this stellar performance vs the 9’rs is the Jameis his supporters and he knowa he can be

  121. miken Says:

    @pittsshore… nah.. Jameis wins last gamevs. atl and one other so we keep him then go 4-12next year then #5 overall pick, miss out on good qb and spend another decade in misery.

  122. Ndog Says:

    I am not happy but let’s make one thing clear it is much easier for someone to win a civil case vs a true court case. I just find it hard to fully believe he was guilty when the victim refuses to take it to trial and waits till less proof is needed to win. If she would have went all in from day one and tried to prove his guilt legally in a court of law this would hold more water but it appears she wanted no part of that and waited for the easier win. So again I’m not happy but I don’t believe her either. Bottom line it’s over and we move on but anything like this again he’s done with me forever, period.

  123. Wesley Says:

    You can’t tell me there is no chance she made this up or greatly exaggerated the situation. She got her payday.

  124. miken Says:

    @wesley- you can’t tell me that there weren’t any fact that didn’t look really bad with out the jw camp handing over money AND the nfl suspending him AND him not appealing suspension like 90% of players do when suspended AND fighting her in court.

  125. Max Says:

    she got a payday, got to remain anonymous, and slandered the guys name through the mud. being a woman is great!!

  126. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I haven’t counted…but opinion seems to be about 50-50 on whether he touched Kate or she was a gold digger.

    So we have a prima donna…an incredibly privileged athlete who has beaten wrap after wrap after wrap…he’s out blackout drunk. Be he didn’t do anything!

    We have a female Uber driver who gets the award for being incredibly clever. She picks up a stranger…was allegedly told by one of the creeps with Jameis who he was…Buc’s QB. In the span of less than 30 minutes she is converted into an accomplished gold digger who figures out she might be able to work a payday out of the trip and makes the report to Uber.

    Really? Man I have stock in the Sunshine Skyway bridge to sell some of you suckers.

    So again to review…we have a fabulously wealthy star who had all day to make his decisions who goes out with two low lifes…one of them a convicted rapist…get’s blind drunk…but he’s not the one who made the mistake.

    We have a young Uber driver who is so freaking clever and smart she can figure…hey it’s just me and him in the car so I can blackmail him. Yeah that’s the ticket.

    Some are more honest like Bonzai who doesn’t really care if a 6-5 guy grabs his daughter his wife vajajay…it’s not really that bad according to him so he simply doesn’t care. Just freaking amazing.

  128. Dapostman Says:

    It became a money grab when her ambulance chasing lawyer got involved. That’s how these guys make money. No one is donating to their Go Fund Me account.

  129. danr Says:

    yeah. i think it happened. he got so drunk and was feelin up women in the club, and forgot to turn it off when he left. probably has no memories.

    This is your last hurrah haters. Get it all out now….

  133. stpetebucsfan Says:

    OK Pickgrin. I’m not a hater but whatever I feel I’ll get it out now. I think we’re all ready to move on. I’m just really glad the distraction is finally gone.

  134. Fire Light Says:

    Get the hate out Jameis Bashers. He paid her $75k to go away. That’s peanuts. It was always a money grab. Jameis is a great human being and a fantastic member of society. I feel bad for him how the fans, media, and others have treated him. Jameis is a grown man and is on with his life and his greatness.

  135. Pittsshore Says:

    Max: you are a certified idiot. I do assume that you were conceived in the normal manner. To that point, would you feel the same if the woman that spit you out experiences the same type of sexual harassment????

  136. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    stpetebucfan…perfectly said!!

    I’m so ready to move on from Jameis..I’ve also heard that he use to shoot animals, like squirrels in the eyes with a bb gun..I hope that isn’t true..it just made me despise him even more..

    He’s so dang guilty..no one settles TWICE!!!!! TWICE folks!!! TWICE and that we know of..could be a lot more times…

  137. Buc believer Says:

    @Life of a Bucs fan…. you heard Jameis shoots the eyes of squirrels. WTF are you smoking you F…ing moron!!! There is a thing called libel you F…ing idiot and if I was Jameis I would find out who you are and sue the S…t out of you! Your an A…whole!

  138. MIke F Says:

    Very unfortunate situation. Both parties get harmed, and we will never know the truth.

    Let’s all remember human beings are more important than the sports they play.

    At this point, JW would be well advised to walk the straight ‘n narrow.

  141. Buc believer Says:

    @Life of a Buc fan…. I also saw on the Internet (so it MUST be true the internet does not lie) that someone that goes by the initials LOABF (life of a Buc fan for anyone mostly life of a Buc fan to stupid to know what those initials mean) likes to do things with gerbils and Vaseline.

  142. DalvinCookRules Says:

    Winston needs much MUCH better PR people around him. He let a drunken moment of mischief define his life. Now I believe he’s branded as a rapist for doing what most of us guys have done at least a few times at bars or nightclubs (and don’t lie and say you never grabbed a butt or a boob while flirting with girls at these venues). It was the same thing in college, whether a “hookup” on free crab legs, jumping onto a platform attempting distasteful humor, or other acts of immaturity. I gave him a pass on the rape allegation as there was just too much evidence working against Kinsman to make her story believable, but now, it is obvious he must’ve done SOMETHING wrong that night enough so to make the girl regret the experience.

    It’s not the actions themselves that are so odious, but the failure of taking responsibility and being HONEST about them–and if you’re not going to be honest about them, please at least hire Sarah Huckabee Sanders to lie for you.

  143. Bucsfanman Says:

    Jean Lafitte- All good my friend! I take for granted that everyone knows my sense of humor can be a little twisted. To that, my apologies!

  144. Dapostman Says:


    I didn’t realize Sarah Huckabee Sanders stood up and told the American people, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

    Probably one of the greatest LIES ever told to the American people.

    Keep the politics out of it jack wad.
