    Mark, you might consider letting your wife dress you when the taping begins. Don’t get me wrong, I like the hats, and casual look, but you could get some national air time, and I’m betting the Mrs has better taste when it comes to clothing.

    Agreed, this will be positive for Jameis, who is still laboring under the perceptions that hardened with the rape accusations years ago with the fans of other teams. Go to any media story on the internet that involves Jameis, and 90% of the reader comments will have to do with the old history. Diehard fans of other teams, of course, will use any excuse to diss a player from another team for any reason or no reason at all, and stick to canned perceptions, that will never change .. but those who are more fans of the game itself will get a chance to be introduced again to him.

    They’ll be impressed!

    I find it hard to believe anyone can watch this kid and not have him grow on them. That said, society only seems to believe what they see and read in the media and on facebook so, I’m sure there will be a large contingent who insists Jameis is “fake” for the cameras.

    Either way, this exposure will be good for our young crop of stars. It’s our time to shine, hopefully the cameras won’t have a negative effect and I don’t believe they will. Our team’s leadership will make sure of that.
