The video of Jameis Winston lifting crab legs is here. You knew it was only a matter of time before the surveillance footage surfaced online.
Here’s a look at what you could call ‘Infamous Jameis’ applying the five finger discount to a bunch of seafood:
Sure, it’s not riveting video, but it’s still weird to see him caught in the act. We do have to remember — he simply forgot to pay. How convenient. We’ve all been there, right?
The sad thing is that this incident will be forgotten about in no time. Once the Heisman winner starts dazzling on Saturdays again next fall, no one will care that he ripped off a bunch of crab legs. In this country, good play on the field buys you a pass off of it. That’s the way it’s always been, that’s likely the way it will continue to be.
Winston’s father has come out and talked about the possibility of getting someone to watch over his son at all hours of the day. Not necessarily an assistant and maybe not quite to the Dez Bryant level — but someone to keep him in line and help with decisions. It really wouldn’t be a bad call.
We can’t forget that Winston is just a 20-year old. We all did really stupid things at that age, and his stupid things are magnified in a way that common folks just can’t understand.
All is not lost for the FSU QB, but he surely has a lot of growing up to do before entering the NFL.
