Not in trouble, just didn't select his words the best while making a well-intentioned speech to a group of elementary school kids.

His words imply that girls are supposed to 'be silent and polite' while boys are 'strong'. Feminists and the PC police get annoyed with type of talk and make a big deal about it.

Due to Winston's past this will cause over-reaction.

And some here think the media doesn't have their knives out ready to take any opportunity to attack him.

It was a poor choice of words that he already apologized about.

Wake me when he does something that will have an effect on his football performance or his ability to be available for games.

Poor choice of words? Only idiots believe that. Most people are too stupid unfortunately to understand the context of what he was saying. I bet those kids understood. Perhaps he should've dumbed it down for the dummies in this country who are "offended".

There was nothing offensive when I watched the video. But that is not how the story is being delivered. It's taking what was said out of context and delivering it in a way meant to seem a salacious as possible in order to generate more 'clicks'. All people will read is that Winston told young girls to "sit down and be silent", which is unfortunate and completely out of context.

ESPN and much of the media in general will attack Winston any chance they get. It's just how it is sadly.

He's apologized for the word choice, which is more than enough to put this 'story' to bed.

This must be the doldrums of the NFL offseason if this is all they can talk about.

They still searching for an off the field incident... :lol: :lol:

So are we mad that this is news or are we mad that they brought up the rape thing again?

I'm confused. ESPN shows the clip, then shows excerpts from Winston's statement admitting the gaffe and explaining his intent, then they bring up the settled rape thing as the "why do I care" capper.

If this is a "hit piece" it is the most weak sauce hit piece I have ever seen.

Let me translate it for you from Espnish...

Jameis Winston fucked up today trying to be a great guy. He made the boys stand up and yell and said the girls should be mostly quiet. Winston told the local paper that he was trying to be cool for kids and fucked up doing it and wasn't trying to hurt anybody. Jameis should be more careful about **** like that because unhinged feminists don't like him much already.


So, yeah. This is the product of a slow sports news cycle. Everyone can move on now.

Personally, I'm mad about them bringing up the sexual assault allegation that he was cleared of. And the one story I read didn't bother to mention that last little piece. It's lazy ****ing journalism. And it will never go away. These hack piece of **** "writers" will file it away to bring up whenever they're staring down the barrel of a deadline and can't fill 1000 words.

And if it sounds as though I'm sensitive to that sort of thing, I get bombarded at least once a year with stories about the Mets cutting a check to Bobby Bonilla. Even though a business publication broke it down and showed that it was actually a good deal. And that deal was not the first to feature deferred money. And it certainly isn't the last. But come June 1, copy/paste/submit.

I'm mad this is news, especially after seeing the video. I'm mad that a positive message got taken completely out of context because some idiot felt that given his past accusations he shouldn't address young girls in that manner. Bullshit. And living in this country where people are too stupid to think for themselves or formulate cogent thoughts in general, there's now some faux outrage because network TV told you to be hurt by the comments.

I've yet to meet a single person who is outraged by this.

But I have seen a bunch of "I'm outraged that people are outraged by this" people.

Depends on the place. Most aren't really taking offense to it. Then you have places like r/NFL that is destroying him for it.

This seems to be the case more often than not - preemptive outrage at outrage that hasn't happened yet.

Most of the rest of the time, it's opportunistic fake outrage at a target who might have it coming anyway, like Milo.

The remaining times it's actual outrage. Though that's pretty rare I find.

For the 11th time now, no. And the next time you ask, no to that also.

BTW, Sanka, I'm wondering if the irony of you defending JW from fellow liberals is lost on you.
