There isn't much heat on Winston anymore.

In regards to public reaction, sure.. maybe. But the Winston case is closed. The civil SOL has passed and there was never a criminal case.

People are justified to react however they want, but it's time to move on either way. It will be stirred back up when Winston reports to TC and faces the press, but I doubt he'll have much to say on the subject. By that point we'll be on to talking about actual football again.

Yes, but prior to the Lesean McCoy incident the 'press' at Buccaneers training camp may have been national... I would guess more national press will be focused on Lesean McCoy than Jamies and the Buccaneers. Certainly the public can react any way it wants, but they are also distracted by the 'next big thing' far too often.

That's a far reaching hypothesis and forecast. For the most part the news surrounding Winston has cooled. Mainly I think because the initial story broke in November, things got quiet in the subsequent months before the suspension came down. And even still the "news" of the suspension and the official suspension had a significant amount of time in between. By the time Winston made his statement, national news media was on to the next story. The main question wasn't even did he do it or not, it was how did he only get 3 games.

If I is nothing, then the story will be about how easy it is to put someone through hell with accusations.

Doubt that’ll be the story. If it’s nothing the news cycle moves on. Reuben Foster’s story was hot until it was found that she lied. Because of #Metoo the public isn’t here to listen to stories about false accusations. The mantra now is that women are to be believed 100% and that false accusations of rape/sexual assault/abuse are rare enough not to be discussed.

I have a very personal experience with that, and it is very, very easy.

It won;'t be the story because no one gives a **** about falsely accused.

It may not lead CNN, but it will be the major societal point of that story.

Most people won’t risk bringing up the false accusations. Too dangerous in this climate.

It appears more and more likely that Jameis didn't do anything. It's weird...

His "admission" was vague at best, but I agree he assumed guilt on some level for whatever happened in that car. His statement was crafted in a way that allows people to read whatever they want into it.

It's certainly time to move on. Winston and the Bucs won't be offering much up in terms of a response regarding this and there is no criminal or civil case. Providing Winston doesn't get in himself involved in any more shenanigans this story will continue to fizzle away.

Yeah, he certainly didn't admit to anything at all. Tampa Bay Buc's fans, on a Buc's fan board, with this selective phony outrage. It's a weak look and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Him taking a "plea deal" was an admission of some guilt. But at this point it's irrelevant. He got 3 games. The driver didn't feel assaulted enough to call the police or file charges. She didn't even file a lawsuit. She was satisfied with his punishment. The league felt 3 games was sufficient enough. Jameis felt 3 games was fair. Anyone still outraged might have an agenda but who cares. This is all in the past. He'll sit 3 games and will start week 4. End of story.
