Tony I think I should correct you. In 2012, at the time of the alleged rape, Winston was not ..."the starting QB"... At that time he was a redshirt behind EJ Manual, who is now in the NFL. So, he had yet to play for FSU. He was already a star QB at the time that the incident in question was revealed to the public.
That's not to say that they didn't see him as the QB of the future, and protect him just as if he were already the starting QB.
Star athletes have been protected and treated differently for a long time and it sometimes starts well before they get to college, and that won't change anytime soon.
The comparison between Kobe and Jamis is fair, both are priviledged athletes who are held to different standards, but Kobe was already a hugely famous and successful pro at the time of his "incident".
I just wonder how many times they got away with these type activities before getting caught? And how many times since?
