    It's a good bet that the opinions of your 5 year old come almost entirely from the opinions they hear from you. Just sayin'.

    If this person came to the game with the intent of seeking out Winston to get his autograph, then I might agree. But more than likely, this was an opportunity that just happened. Winston came over near the section this guy was to sign autographs and he decided to get something signed. Would you really expect him to run out to the souvenir stand and purchase an FSU hat and hope he got back in time for Winston to sign it?

    So now your argument is comparing an autograph from Manning to Winston? Is Manning the QB for our rival who may or may not have raped someone?

    I also think your "opinion" on him being liked is flawed. Everything that mentions the name Winston is quickly turned to a bash fest. You may like him but that doesn't speak for majority.

    I can't wrap my mind around this. Winston beat us in the SWAMP this year, I doubt you saw any GATOR fans hanging around after the game trying to get an autograph.

    "Hey guys, I know we lost big time to our in-state rival, but check this out...I got Winston's autograph and on it he's making fun of us...isn't this awesome?"

    Go GATORS!

    Everything HERE, on GC, about Winston gets turned into a "bash fest". But outside the UF and UM boards, I think the opinion is considerably different. Not saying he's viewed as a model citizen, but he's not viewed with the vitriol he is here. I suspect the public opinion of Winston is more in line with how we view Manziel, as a jerk but a real football talent.

    And no, I am not a fan of Winston.

    Well I doubt he was signing autographs. But if he was, there probably would have been Gator fans asking for one.

    If you want to turn on a fellow Gator just for getting an autograph from a guy you don't like, that's fine. I just don't think it's a very big deal.

    I understood what you were saying, I was stating everything I've seen says different. Matter of fact it creates an argument almost everyday on Facebook. Everything I've ever seen on espn is the same. It's not just us who question him. It's always about his legal issues.

    I wouldn't turn on him, the dude obviously needs help! This is a time for us to support him and help him with his problem; not a time for us to turn our backs on him.

    More likely though, this is either a prank or someone not truly passionate about either team (which is probably most of society even in the state of FLORIDA).

    Go GATORS!

    Hes not a kid, winston would not have been turning down a kid. Every little kid... and everyone else for that matter in that pic are in Seminole gear. If it was for them he should have had them sign nole gear. Besides look at this pic and tell me he isn't as happy as a fat kid in a candy store while winston is signing that hat. He looks down right giddy. Not buying it. He sold out to our most hated opponent. I also don't believe Peyton would sign a gator hat... to many bad memories for him. Lol.

    Look how giddy he is in this pic worst-florida-gators-fan-2-570x380.jpg

    Ummm...yeah, because what he hears from me is to love his Gators and that the Seminoles, Dawgs, 'Bama, Miami and Tennessee are to be hated. So, considering we're questioning that Gator "fan's" fandom, it's perfectly valid that my GATOR fan of a son, who wants to play FOR THE GATORS, thinks that a GATOR fan getting a NOLE'S signature is ridiculous.

    So yeah, I absolutely stand by that like any proud Gator mom.

    Your right! I would have gotten Winston's autograph too.... on a piece of toilet paper so I could then turn around and wipe my ass with that garbage. :)

    Maybe it's me but I don't want, wouldn't want and couldn't ( gator morals) take his autograph, especially from one of the players I despise the most in all of college football.

    I agree, my daughter is 2 yrs old and she knows how to say 2 things relating to sports : " Go Gators" and unfortunately "Go Gamecocks' ( wife's team). But she will know who public enemy #1 is...... FSU and I suppose clemson for her mommas sake.
