Jameis Winston faces fresh stealing allegations over claims that he stole soda from Burger King
UK Daily Mail ^ | May 22, 2014 | David McCormack and Snejana Farberov

Posted on 05/23/2014 5:49:00 AM PDT by C19fan

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has been hit with fresh accusations of stealing. The current holder of the Heisman Trophy, Winston, 20, is rapidly earning a reputation for his off-the-field bad boy antics as well as his sporting prowess. Surveillance video footage emerged last week showing Winston shoplifting $30-worth of crab legs from a Tallahassee supermarket and now he has been accused of stealing soda.

Not to mention if he actually consumes all this stuff he keeps stealing his conditioning is going to be absolutely terrible by the time training camp rolls around.

I’ve like this guy, but this is not looking good. If nothing else, he’s now in the biggest spotlight in college sports as the Heisman winner and national championship and needs to realize he has to get things in order or it will be the end of things for him.

All he needs is a domestic violence charge and he’ll be fit for the pro level.

This instance is going to be interesting to watch. The "I forgot to pay" crap won't fly this time.

I heard the audio of the 911 call the Ass't Manager of the Burger King made. She stated that she told Winston and his friends that he had to pay otherwise it is stealing. She claims Winston told her, "I don't care. I'm not paying."

Now...where's my Jiffy Pop?

Most elite athletes have been standouts since they were little kids. They’ve been hearing nothing but adulation about their athletic skills since they were in T-Ball. If that praise is not tempered by good old-fashioned parental discipline, what often develops is a man-child who doesn’t believe that society’s rules apply to him.

Makes me wonder if he really did rape that girl. It will always be his word against hers, but he seems to take whatever he wants.

I have watched this guy play and he has a lot of talent, but when it comes to common sense judgement away from the playing field he leaves a lot to be desired. Too bad. I would suggest he be assigned a shadow big brother to rein him in until he matures.

"Bad boy antics"? At exactly what point do the libtards in the propaganda wing of the Demonic Party start calling the committing of crimes "bad boy antics"?

Rape, shoplifting (twice). No problem...he is equipped with the Melanin Force Field. Guaranteed to be 100% impermeable to media concern.

The story from May 12th (?) is very telling...his dad told Rachel Axon of USA Today that he thinks FSU should have someone with his son at all times to keep him out of trouble. WOW! Not, “my son needs to be more responsible” or “he needs to learn that you can’t...”, just needs to be watched. Here is the quote:

“”He’s supposed to have somebody around him 24/7,” said Antonor Winston specifically. “He a Heisman Trophy winner so (he’s) definitely not supposed to be by (himself).”

Not much more needs to be said, IMO. Little infant football star needs a baby sitter.

Dumbass. I wonder how many millions that “free soda” cost him in his next contract and all the endorsement money that won’t ever show up now.

He’ll make plenty of money but I’d wager in 10 years it will all be gone. I have a feeling he won’t make it in the NFL for any length of time.

Is this “free soda” thing some sort of ghetto phenomenon?

Years ago I worked in a store with a snack bar. Some black girl walked over to help herself to a free soda refill. The cashier, who was white, told her refills were not free and asked her politely to pay for it. This girl slapped the cashier across the face.

Customers watching this unfold began to choose up sides along racial lines, and we very nearly had a race riot on our hands.

He’s gotten away with everything his whole life. Not just him but most athletes. Someone better set him straight soon or he will have something happen in his life that will destroy him. The culture at FSU isn’t helping either. Long history of the police protecting athletes there.

In his defense, normally when you have to get your own drink, I think it is generally understood that refills are free, otherwise the drinks are behind the counter and filled by the staff. Am I mistaken in this?

FSU is far from the only school where that is the case.

Makings of another NFL head case.

All that needs to be done now for a massive flame out is to hand him a 10 million dollar signing bonus when the time comes.

Where I’m from, if the fast food place has the customers dispense sodas themselves, it is taken as a given that refills are free, unless there is some sign stating otherwise posted.

Who wants to be the cop that caused the local team to lose The Big Game?

This is, BTW, not limited to college. Very common for high school players, too, particularly in small towns.

Very sad. We should not have a group that is above the common enforcement of the law.

Another Michael Vick just waiting to happen. Of course, Vick got a second chance after he did his time (no, I don't want to open that can of worms about whether or not he deserves that), but it's the same type of mentality on display here. Tons of talent combined with tons of entitlement and very little parental control is a bad combination.

He didn’t buy any soda so no refills. However, this incident was a year ago, July 2013. BK decided not to prosecute. I don’t know why it is being made public now.
