Jameis Winston, controversy, again

    School looking into how so damn many of his autographs are authenticated as he swears he didn't sign for money. It's the same company that got Todd Gurley in trouble.


    This is obviously the least of his sins -- not even a sin -- but man that guy cannot stay on the right side of the rules for more than five seconds.

    Yeah, better get that bank now, Jameis.
    Because you're throwing millions out the window.

    I'm wondering if Dick Whitman locked in Notre Dame +12 yet.

    Jameis Winston is alleged to have signed 340 items. What are the odds he could have completed this task in less than a calendar year?

    Jameis Winston has long believed he's above the law/rules. And Jimbo Fisher is just the latest and highest-profile person to enable that attitude.

    I think it was SI that ran the short column about being approached by the same dealer that was selling Gurley's autographs, apparently wanting to get paid for the info. They declined to pay. The letter they got was virtually identical to the one that ran when the story broke. He mentioned in that cover letter that he also had a number of Winston autographed items.

    Sheer coincidence, I'm sure.

    Winston is dumb as a box of rocks. He's cost himself what, tens of millions of dollars over the last six months?

    What are the odds he can count to 340?

    I reject that he's dumb. He's not.

    As I said, he's just been led to believe he's above the law. Why behave when you don't face any consequences?

    Jameis is incredibly short-sighted, though.

    Nearsighted, even.

    He is actually very intelligent. But he clearly had no common sense. But as you say, he probably has never faced any real consequences.

    Tens of millions of dollars? Please and Clowney might be a third round pick.

    A good combine and this is all forgotten.
