Stature matters.

With an ongoing Title IX investigation against him, 1/2 game suspension is a joke. Should be at least 1 game for being such a dumbass. Obviously he thinks he's untouchable. Dudes a dumb**** to the furthest degree. His stock is dropping like a rock. Hope they lose on Saturday because of his douchebaggery.

This kid shouldn't be allowed to be in college. I hope FSU loses their federal money over him.

Sorry, moderators. I was only copy/pasting main stream media and figured it was OK. But if anyone doesn't know, and wants to know, simply google FSU & Winston.

Hard to believe that the Florida State administration, athletic director and coaches continue to allow this guy to play. How can any program in America live with themselves when they continue to coddle and cover up for players like this?

Just shows you don't have to have a solid character to win a Heisman Trophy.

I'm sure there is much worse said on nights out in Tallahassee, but this wasn't on a night out. He stood on a table in the student union in the middle of the day and did it.

What he yelled was a re-creation of a popular media blooper gone viral on the internet now.

Why he would do that live on such a stage as that surprises me a bit but I don't think he meant any harm.

Wow folks are sensitive and thin-skinned these days.

Glass houses and all.

........Are we sure Winston and Justin Bieber aren't really out of "the same Gene Pool"?

Fla St should have canned him during the rape issue, they did not.

Then he becomes a thief and steals good, again they did not can him.

Now he thinks he can say and do as he wishes and makes hateful comments and only gets to sit half a game.

Shame on Fla St and the NCAA for allowing this from any player let alone a Heisman Winner.

Please someone at Fla St do something with this guy before he rapes another girl or hurts someone and then can act like a fool jumping onto tables and making bad comments.

He is out of control and his conduct needs to be used as an example of how colleges and the NCAA has let players get away with acting like total idiots like he has.

What is he doing that we dont know about?

I am hoping one more incident and the league and then the NCAA steps in because players need to be held to a higher standard of behavior as we have kids who look up to idiots like this and think he is something special.

Something tells me he is getting away a lot more then we know about.

Why would the "can" him if he was never convicted or charged with rape? Were kicking people off teams for accusations now?
