Winston's Father: Jameis Needs Supervision
Share this article
When a kid does something wrong, most people ask a simple question: where are his parents?
Well, that's what most people were asking when it came to the hijinks of Florida State quarterback/closer Jameis Winston.
Where are his parents in all this and why haven't they spoken out?
They have now. Winston's father, Antonor, spoke about his wayward son to USA Today. He thinks Jameis should be supervised. Well, duh! I thought that was head coach Jimbo Fisher's job, as well as baseball coach Mike Martin's.
“Not only him," Winston the Elder said. "I think it should show the university and us ... I think we probably kind of dropped the ball on that a little bit.”
You think, Mr Winston? Your son is acting like a dummy and now you just figured out that maybe, just maybe, he needs to be talked to.
“He’s supposed to have somebody around him 24/7,” Winston the Elder continued. “He's a Heisman Trophy winner, so [he’s] definitely not supposed to be by [himself].”
Has any Heisman winner in history had to have a handler? I never heard of Tim Tebow needing someone to watch over him, or even Johnny Football, whose Heisman victory tour would've made him a prime pledge at Delta House.
So why does Jameis need someone? He's a grown man who should know right from wrong. He knows not to steal crab legs; he did it because he thought he could get away with it.
Hell, he's the current Heisman winner and he's acting like a privileged jerk. If your own parents can't pull you in, then who can?
Apparently, no one.
