Well, well. Here we go again. Another prominent male athlete has been accused of sexual misconduct. What’s wrong with these athletes? Don’t they understand that once they achieve a level of prominence, they can no longer have sex with ANYBODY – not even their own wives.
Now Jameis Winston, the starting quarterback for the soon to be 1st ranked Florida State Seminoles, has been accused of raping a woman. He admits having sex with her, but claims it was consensual. Sure, this situation presents huge problems for Jameis, but it presents even bigger problems for two other entities – the NCAA and his parents.
It’s a problem for the NCAA because they’ve been salivating for a Florida State/Alabama matchup in the championship game for weeks. Sure, Alabama lost on 11/30, but now Florida State is #1, having spanked Florida. The fragrance of the collective NCAA orgasmic results is palpable. It’s a problem for his parents because they just might have to explain why they put an “e” in his name that’s silent.
Only questions remain. Is Jameis a pampered athlete saturated with self-entitlement, or a targeted celebrity? Is the unnamed victim truly a victim, or a starry-eyed opportunist with dollar signs for DNA? Would I prefer to continue to write about how horribly dangerous humans can be, or crack open beer and watch more exciting college football? I vote for #3.
