        I always wonder what you do about the morals clause in a contract like the one Nike signed with Rapeis. Since he was already a known rapist, how could you fire him if he did it again or just grabbed her by the pvssy in an uber?

          That is an interesting question for sure. Does a morals clause require one to behave as well as they have in the past or does it require one clean up their act. If it were the latter, I would think the contract might specify exactly what past acts they must avoid?

            Too bad there is no chance that his Heisman Trophy will be taken away.

              They dropped him because he sucked...not because they have morals.

                  I bet he jumped on a table and said, "F#@% Nike right in the P#$$Y?.

                    I wonder whatever happened to him. You guys used to abuse the living $hit out of him on GSMB. Prototypical Cane fan.

                      Still think he might have been Dooley. Or a series of UF Journalism major interns.

                      It would be truly appreciated if us true Gators on this board keep referring to Jameis Winston as Rapeis Winston.
                      Too bad Omar will refuse to do so.

                        Rapeis is fine. He's already signed with a much more appropriate sponsor;
