TROLL or IDIOT? Lets Play! How Tampa Bay Buccaneer website comments are a continuing reminder that our GOOBERVILLE nickname still applies to some

WAKE UP GOODELL!! Take some PEDs or something.

I find it funny how people are so unforgiving toward people they dont like, and are forgiving if they like the person or if they require it. Its a constant reminder that we see what we want to, and hear what we want to hear.

Anyone who says the apology was half ass, have you ever listened to anything else Winston has spoken; actually heard the words coming out of his mouth? If you did you would know the man preaches accountability, and rarely if ever puts praise on himself, but on his teammates and coaches around him.

Its almost an admission of self guilt when I read posters (maybe short for Imposters? ) create lists of his infractions, and knowing that its not really enough..so they create even more things to add to the list, each one sillier than the last.

This is from HONEY BEAR, a poster on PewterReport.com, possibly one of the best features of any blog or newspaper piece about the Bucs by Scott Reynolds.

Reynolds pens an 1800 word article on how its best to not react out of emotionalism but rather contemplation. So after days of self-reflecting he decided to put himself in Jameis Winson’s corner and take the side the Winston will pull himself and the Bucs out of this funk and return Tampa Bay to the Playoffs and winning ways.

Of course for Honey Bear, SR put down about 1792 words too many, focusing only on past events and the negative ones, none of the positive.

What exactly are the 2 strikes? The way I see it, he has at least 3, and that’s just with the Bucs alone. Even if you don’t count each incident as a “strike”, it’s an embarrassing pattern that the Bucs keep enabling.

1. Telling girls to be “silent”, after already having a history of sexual abusing women.
2. Poking Marshon Lattimore
3. Eating “W’s”
4. Groping the Uber driver.
5. Lying about it.
6. A half-assed apology.

Of course the poster left out a number of other transgressions we know about Jameis since his becoming a Buc;

7.Caused it to rain on Thursday

8.Missed a Brush n Floss session during training camp in 2015

9..Did knowingly rip the tag off of his Sealy Posturepedic mattress

10. Didn’t deflect ENOUGH praise to his offensive line and wide receivers for having the #2 passing attack in the NFL last year.

Im NOT blessed when it comes to comments sections!

Ok.. my silliness matches the absurdity of the argument…but in all seriousness; One of the most important things to consider (something all judges do) is making the punishment fit the transgression.

You have to compare what he did to what others did.  Pittsburgh

Good Job guys! I had THIS finger up her &#^$% and THIS finger up her %$$!

Steelers QB  Ben Roethlisberger trapped a girl in a bathroom stall and had his goons block off the doorway so he could have his way with her (IE  rape). He got 6 games, reduced down to 4.
In just one example of many, Victor Bolden was suspended 4 games for testing positive (1st time) for Performance Enhancing Drugs or PEDs. If you get performance enhancing drugs violation, you get 4 games; Winston got 3 games.

Here is all that matters, Not the College crap, not opinions…This is all that should really matter:

*He may not even remember what he did because he drank too much.
*He’s made the decision to quit drinking alcohol
*By doing so he has shown regret and willingness to take steps to prevent alcohol from causing problems like this or anything else from occurring.

anything else, is people hearing what they want to hear. If you dont think the apology was heartfelt enough, or if you think he lied, maybe you should listen to the clips again. He said he didn’t remember doing any such thing, and he apologized if he acted inappropriately.

He then officially apologized when you know damn well he could contest the ruling and fight this. He could appeal this if he wanted to.

Does no one see that he’s not appealing because he probably can’t? He probably was given 3 games as part of an agreement, which means the NFL already felt working with both parties was the best course of action.

*She releases a statement saying she’s ok with the ruling.
*He doesn’t appeal and issues a public apology.

Don’t feel sorry for Jameis Winston; at least he doesn’t work in Hollywood

Winston will more than likely begin the season on the sideline.

As its becoming clear Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston is going to be suspended by the NFL for the first 3 games of the season, sentiment among Bucs fans is to cry foul.

Shouts of ‘its not fair’ are being heard on facebook and twitter, and maybe it isn’t.  Winston has denied any wrong doing, although his Uber account was suspended after the incident was reported. With no court date, no evidence hearing, Winston has been branded guilty by the NFL and sentenced. It’s not something were used to in this country where our innocence is supposed to be presumed.

But this is the private sector, and even the court of public opinion has weight in this jurisdiction. A conviction isn’t necessary as scores of fans think Winston is already guilty of bad sex conduct going back to his days at Florida State where he was accused of rape.

It was a charge he was exonerated for three time, although even the greatest fan can admit the evidence was poorly handled by Tallahassee police.

Truth is it could be worse for Winston, he could work in Hollywood. No not for the LA Rams, but for Paramount, or CBS, or Bad Robot; or any other film making company who fires employees when word of impropriety arises.

Ryan Fitzpatrick went 2-1 as Bucs QB starter last year during Winstons injuries.

Winstons ‘alleged’ transgression will cost him three paychecks, but it may cost others far more than that. For over a decade the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have started out slow in NFL seasons, facing an uphill battle each year, one they usually cannot overcome. Going in his place will be NFL Journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick who has had some levels of success throwing the ball in the NFL, and who went 2-1 last year as a starter during Jameis’s injuries.

Tampa Bay’s head coach Dirk Koetter barely survived with his job last season, as expectations were high for the Bucs to win coming off a 9-7 season and instead going 5-11. A fast start is critical to having a good season as Bucs ownership is not likely to retain Koetter after another losing season.

Then a new coaching staff would come in, which would make it the 6th head coach in 12 years; A recipe for even more continued losing. A new coach who will also have absoluetly no ties to Winston who was drafted by Koetter’s boss Jason Licht who could be held responsible for the vetting of Jameis in 2015. A new head coach may see another path for winning with a new QB, in what could be a preferred one besides the beleaguerd Florida State product.

Well, maybe the NFL isn’t that dis-similar from Hollywood after all.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers first Depth Chart tells a few clues, if one buys the 1st chart as “Sports Canon”

The first DEPTH CHART is out for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of 2017 and I’m about to tell you how they look:

I Don’t know.

Let’s wait until they play someone with-OUT Orange, Red, Pewter and/or Motorola numerals on their uniform.

But regardless, you can tell a few things by checking out the very first issue. For starters, coaches will put someone first who shouldn’t be to motivate a player.

This is year two with the same defensive coordinator, and year three with Offensive coordinator. If you remember last year Cameron Brate was listed as no.1 Tight End, and everyone including myself said “Who”?  10  TDs later …. Brate is still the starting TE, but so is The Juice.

OJ Howard has Bucs fans excited with visions of Gronk and Hernandez dancing around (without the Hernandez off field stuff obviously)!

Ali Marpet is a Center, but this isnt the first time the Bucs have moved linemen around, its part of the DNA around here. Way back First HC John McKay was famous for taking defensive linemen and putting them on the O Line.
