There is a new American idol this morning as the NFL put it’s money where it’s mouth is and rolled out accused rapist, thief and general all around scumbag Jameis Winston as the number one pick in the draft. Oh lord how the money will roll in – his character has already been inserted into the newest version of Madden video football – and all of the phony contrition by the league over those domestic abuse cases are now exposed as nothing more than horseshit and hypocrisy. Despite all of the public relations pieces and spin to excuse their new merchandising cash cow's troubles as youthful indiscretions the leering little jackass promptly punked everyone by sending out a picture of himself with a big platter of crab legs. But what could one expect of a guy who refused to even show up in person at the draft and instead had the fawning media come to him. There was even a red carpet rolled out leading into his Alabama home last night.
What a class act.
Not that this was unexpected given the dismal state of moral decline in America and I am sure that there will be those who will begin to label critics of Winston as racists despite his sordid past and inevitable future of trouble. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, one of the most putrid organizations in the history of pro sports will trot out Winston at a press conference today as if he were the second coming of Christ.He will be adorned in one of their garish, arena league style jerseys. his number will be "3" which is nicely symbolic of “three strikes and you’re out”. The Bucs will now shower millions upon millions of dollars upon the new face of the franchise despite having alienated a good portion of their fan base by going through with pissing away the top pick on a thug.
They got burned badly but are too stupid to know it yet although with a chump of a head coach in Lovie Smith -who doesn't exactly elicit memories of Vince Lombardi - at the helm, there is a reason why they ended up with the number one pick in the draft. Now he has staked his career on a ticking time bomb who is so shameless that he sent out that post-draft crab legs picture. It is a wonder that he didn't jump up on the table and shout "I'm going to f*ck her right in the pussy" too.
The Washington Post reports today that “Jameis Winston just trolled America by eating crab legs after getting drafted No. 1”:
Whatever you think of Jameis Winston — and odds are your opinion is as strong as his throwing arm — the 21-year-old is not one to shrink on the big stage. He aced his first game for Florida State, dominated opponents on his way to a Heisman trophy and national championship his first season, and seemed to grow more focused amidst allegations that he raped a fellow FSU student.
So it is perhaps no surprise that Winston chose to celebrate being chosen as the No. 1 pick in Thursday night’s NFL Draft in controversial fashion. In a photo he posted to Instagram, Winston posed in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers hat and jersey while holding a plate of monstrous crag legs.
Don’t see the controversy?
Winston’s snack was, it seems, a sly allusion to the time when he was caught taking a plate of crab legs from a Tallahassee grocery store without paying for them. The quarterback was given an adult civil citation, allowing him to avoid a criminal record.
He chalked the crustacean kerfuffle up to “a moment of youthful ignorance.”
That moment only occurred a year ago, however. And his draft night dig at his critics does little to allay fears that he will be a liability for the league or his future employers.
Then again, Tampa is a Jameis Winston throw from Tallahassee, so there are few places he would be more welcome. In fact, he already has a standing offer from a local restaurant: free crab legs for life.
Even if he stays away from scandal in Tampa, Winston will still have to contend with the rape allegation. FSU was accused of botching its investigation into the incident, but Winston was never charged with a crime. Earlier this month, however, his accuser filed a lawsuit against the football player.
Winston, who will reportedly earn a $14.5 bonus for being the top pick in the draft, was typically defiant. Or at least his lawyer was.
“This stunt was expected,” attorney David Cornwell told ProFootballTalk when the lawsuit was filed. “[The accuser’s] false accusations have already been exposed and rejected six times. This time will be no different. Mr. Winston welcomes the opportunity to clear his name with the truth. Mr. Winston is looking forward to the upcoming draft.
There will however be the lingering stink cloud that hangs over Winston's beating of the rape charges on him because of the good ole boy network centered around powerful Florida State University. The newly filed civil suit was moved out of Orlando into Winston friendly Tallahassee a few days ago where it will be snuffed out. It would hardly benefit the money machine that is the NFL were the newest star in their marquee to have his good name tarnished before they are able to sell as much Winston related gear as possible.
Nobody is saying that he is the second coming of Charles Manson with his cult leader sway over true believers or that he cooks and eats his victims like Jeffrey Dahmer did but the dude is destined for trouble with a capital “T”. That “T” stands for Tampa, a major Florida sin city and the home of some of the most renowned all nude strip clubs in the southeast. It's a veritable Mecca for a young stud with newly found wealth, a reputation for sexual deviance and a dick as hard as Chinese arithmetic. The only real upside is that now that “Famous Jameis” has hit it big he can just buy his pussy instead of having to resort to rape.
As for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when Winston implodes they will be fully deserving of their fate.
