    • Nun ist es offiziell: Buccaneers' Jameis Winston suspended three games

      The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback has been suspended for the first three games of the regular season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league announced Thursday. News of Winston's punishment was first reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.Winston won't appeal the ban since it is part of a "negotiated settlement," a source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The suspension stems from a female Uber driver accusing Winston of groping her in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016.

      The NFL "concluded that Winston violated the personal conduct policy by touching the driver in an inappropriate and sexual manner without her consent and that disciplinary action was necessary and appropriate." As part of of his discipline, Winston is required to obtain a clinical evaluation and fully cooperate in any recommended program of therapeutic intervention. "A failure either to obtain the evaluation or to cooperate with treatment will result in further discipline," the league said in a statement. "In addition, a future violation of the personal conduct policy will result in more substantial discipline, including a potential ban from the NFL."
      Wo ist der Kotz Smiley, wenn man ihn mal braucht. :marge

      Nach dem Vergewaltigungs-Vorwurf am College und den paar anderen "kleineren" Fehltritten, ist das natürlich die nächste ordentliche Kerbe auf seinem Kerbholz... Ich bin ja bekanntlich großer Winston Fan, rein was das sportliche angeht, aber derzeit frag ich mich echt ob ich den Typen noch jeden Sonntag ohne schlechtes Gewissen anfeuern kann. Wenn's nur ein Vorwurf wäre - ok - jeder macht Fehler und hat seine zweite Chance verdient, aber langsam wird's etwas viel. Noch dazu wo es nicht um "harmlose" Blödheiten geht, wie mal nen Joint geraucht zu haben, sondern um Vorwürfe von sexueller Belästigung bzw. Vergewaltigung. :no:

      Ich hab ja bis zuletzt an seine Unschuld geglaubt, vor allem da er die Sache von Anfang an abgestritten hat und er zu Beginn der Untersuchungen sogar noch vom angeblichen Mitfahrer Eagles CB Ronald Darby entlastet wurde. Aber sein "negotiated settlement" und sein Statement lesen sich in meinen Augen wie ein Schuldgeständnis:

      "The NFL informed me today that I will be suspended for the first three games of the season," Winston wrote in a statement obtained by Rapoport. "First and foremost, I would like to say I'm sorry to the Uber driver for the position I put you in. It is uncharacteristic of me and I genuinely apologize," Winston added. "In the past 2 1/2 years my life has been filled with experiences, opportunities and events that have helped me grow, mature and learn, including the fact that I have eliminated alcohol from my life. "I know I have to hold myself to a higher standard on and off the field and that I have a responsibility to my family, community, and teammates to live above the platform with which God has blessed me. I apologize to my teammates, the Buccaneers organization and fans for letting them down and for not being able to be out there for the first three games of the season. Although I am disappointed in the NFL's decision, I understand the NFL's process, and I embrace this as an opportunity to take advantage of the resources available to help me achieve the goals that I have for myself. "I now look forward to putting this behind me and I will continue to work hard every day to be a positive influence in my community and be the best person, teammate and leader I can be."
      Und was soll der Scheiß, das er Alkohol nun aus seinem Leben gestrichen hat? Soll das ne versteckte miese Rechtfertigung ala "Ich war halt besoffen" sein? Würg.

      Wieso können wir nicht EINMAL Glück mit einem QB haben? Wieso geht bei uns nach mindestens 3 Saisonen immer alles den Bach runter? :heul
      .... Suck again 2017.... :help
