    Guys like Jameis Winston who absolutely flaunt the rules. Shoplifting, sexual assault, selling autographs. I know that nothing has been proven in some cases but why would someone be selling 2000 of his autographs without Jameis benefitting? The same guy who had all kinds of Johnny Football autographs last year. Johnny also flaunted that he was untouchable. The NCAA is turning a blind eye to this and ruin the game.

    Why don't they just make it legal for these guys to make money so the honest people can benefit as well? Because schools would lose their golden geese. What a fucked up deal. I wish they'd establish a legitimate minor league and just take away football scholarships. Maybe the FXFL or whatever the hell it is called, it the answer.

    How is the selling of autographs, off the field, ruining the game? :wtf:

    Last time I checked the games have been more exciting than ever.

    The real issue is that my team loses because they run a clean program while FSU is near the top because they have a bunch of criminals. Even the coach is defending Jameis. I forgot to mention when Winston stood on a table in the library and was yelling out obscenities.

    The are if you are a fan of a team that recruits and allows these little indiscretions. The honest teams that don't recruit this type of player are sitting at the bottom of the standings.

    Of course, you'll find exceptions. Wouldn't it be better if everyone was on a level playing field?

    the coach saying he signs autographs after games is BS, those ones wouldnt be in numbered order.
    why do the kids always use the same guy who ends up telling on them.

    if u are good enough that ppl wana pay for your autograph, then just stay clean and youl make millions in nfl

    Nothing has changed. There have always been assholes, criminals, no show "student" athletes, etc.

    It just seems to be more prevalent because of the Internet and need to fabricate drama by the media.

    Only to protect a young naive student.

    Again, if not for the media's need to manufacture stories no one would have ever known about it and they shouldnt have.

    Charlie Strong at Texas is ahead of the curve

    He kicks off the shit heads before they can shit up the locker room and fuck his program

    They will lose for a couple of seasons, but thrive when all the traditional powers have half their rosters suspended or banned

    I disagree. They have become more savvy in their cheating. Plus, the fans are more accepting of bad behavior than they used to be when it was hushed up as long as it brings championships. I'm not against players making money, just make it legal and above board so all can benefit.

    I wonder how long they will give him? Texas fans are not very tolerant of losing and they have some big money supporters.
