Affluenza maybe? Worked for Ethan Couch.

Good thing he didn't run over and kill 4 people on the side of the road, high on pills, while fleeing the store in his Ford pickup after stealing those crab legs.

The story about Winston getting "mobbed by fans for autographs" -- on a rainy night, near closing time, in the cow town that is Tallahassee, FL -- is a huge stretch. It sounds like it was written by the same SNL-castoff that penned Winston's "apology".

This kid has gathered a lot of baggage in the last two years, from the alleged sexual assault, to the BB-gun incident, to the FreeSodaUniversity caper at BK. What he lacks in IQ is overshadowed by what he lacks in character.

I know that's sarcastic, but my guess is guys like this are looked up to by tons of kids...especially minorities that aspire to be him and often have no father at home. I'm not saying Winston should accept the role model gig at 20 yrs old...but he can't ditch it being the Heisman trophy winner/national champion and all...

Good thing he didn't run over and kill 4 WHITE people on the side of the road, drunk, high on pills, while fleeing the store in his Ford pickup after stealing beer like Ethan Couch and then have his father get him 0 days in jail. Right Eddie?

Who does he play for? I know of Tim Couch, but as far as I know he never killed anyone.

He plays for the "4 Time Murders" out of Texas. Use your googles and interwebs for something other than your plexiglass crusade for meaningful dialogue on here. Ethan Couch, affluenza defense, Ethan Couch.

Cut and paste. Since it seems you prefer to have things spoon fed and spelled out for you.

How'd the color of the shingles on the house turn out? Looking good?

Oh, make no mistake, I knew who you referred to. What sailed over your head was - what does a 16 yr old kid have to do with a 20 yr old college sophomore that won the Heisman trophy and is on the verge of inking a $10M+ contract? That is the question you should be asking yourself.

And yes, I like the shingles. New shingles with a little texture (architectural) make a dramatic difference. Now I just need to get a new roof on the garage.

I knew what you meant when you said Tim Couch, I mean, Tim Ouch.

But what sends a bigger/ broader message.... run over and kill 4 people and blame your parents financial status and get probation, or get caught stealing some crab legs and only harm your own reputation/ draft value?

You're a sports guy Eddie, I know you get this, I know you get this.

And yes, I thought the colors you showed/ chose from were pretty damn good. Hopefully the garage roof turns out just as good man.

I'm just not seeing a connection here. Rich people have almost always had an advantage during legal proceedings. I'm not sure how that is supposed to take the spotlight off Winston stealing crab.
