Apparently she was unable to identify him which seems a bit odd. Not exactly like he has face that just blends in.

At any rate if the NFL investigates and holds finds enough to hold him accountable, the Bucs should cut him it’s that simple.

Winston is not denying being in the car, but said the driver is wrong saying he was sitting next to her, as there were other passengers present. Well who were the other passengers? Maybe J.W. doesn’t want to state publicly who they are, or who might’ve done such a thing, but I’m sure the league is aware. I’ll withhold judgement until more facts are known.

The driver told BuzzFeed that there was just one passenger. Who is telling the truth? Probably impossible to determine unless Winston can produce a fellow passenger to testify that HE groped the driver … and the chances of getting someone to admit to that?

Well, who’s he hanging out with that likes to grope Uber drivers? An NFL QB needs to distance himself from troublemakers.

We’ll know the fever has run its course when the mailman is forced to resign for groping.

Yeah Scu, it could’ve been a judge, senator, comedian, actor, producer, singer, director or Donald J Trump! In the famous words of Vince Lombardi, ” what the hells going on here”!

This really is no news. When you make the kind of money these NFL players are making it might be wise to just hire a limo.
The question I have is what the hell are you doing out and about before the game? Could have been one of the reasons why we got smeared.

I don’t give a damn if he did it. All he is accused of doing is the same thing that your selected president has boasted about. If he can be president, then Jameis can be QB…Why don’t we all just GRAB EM BY THE PUSSY!

Ronald Darby, cb from Philadelphia has come out to defend jameis saying he was in the back seat and that no touching of any kind happened. So this is sort of relief and shame on the young lady for smearing his name if this is the case
