Jameis Winston's alleged rape victim goes public about her 'ordeal' in documentary

The woman who accused Florida State University football star Jameis Winston of raping her has come forward for a new documentary that premiered Friday at the Sundance Film Festival.

Kirby Dick's The Hunting Ground (trailer at bottom) investigates sexual assault on campuses across the country and features Erica Kinsman —  the college coed who claims she was raped by 2013 Heisman Trophy winner.



In the film, the 20-year-old Kinsman describes her ordeal, allegedly at the hands of Winston, then a Florida State University freshman. She says she had been drinking and was admittedly woozy on that December 2012 night. Kinsman tearfully recalls a man buying her a shot at a local Tallahassee bar, then being in the back of a cab the next before being raped on the bathroom floor of an apartment, according to The Daily Beast.

Kinsman says she remembers coming to while the man on top of her, and claims that she asked him to stop. The man allegedly ignored both her and his roommate, who Kinsman says entered the room and told him to stop, before taking her into the bathroom.

“All these people were praising (Winston)… and calling me a slut, a whore,” Kinsman says in the film.



The 21-year-old Winston was never charged and Florida State cleared him of the accusations at a student code of conduct hearing in December.


Seahawks players booed by fans at Pro Bowl — and they weren't even playing (VIDEO)

The Seattle Seahawks had no players participating the Pro Bowl because the team is happily playing in the Super Bowl next week.

But midway through the first quarter of Sunday night's NFL talent showcase, five Seahawks players — safety Kam Chancellor, running back Marshawn Lynch, cornerback Richard Sherman, safety Earl Thomas and linebacker Bobby Wagner — who were elected to the game were announced to the crowd.




And they were booed ... ruthlessly.




It's no surprise that the pro-Arizona Cardinals crowd drowned out NFL Network's Willie McGinest's interview during a break in the action, but the boobirds were merciless.

While no under-inflated balls at the game were used at the game, this probably pumped up a few Seahawks egos. 

Odell Beckham Jr. reveals he played with muscle tears during season: Report

Odell Beckham Jr. continued to dazzle fans during his spectacular rookie season after snagging five catches for 89 yards in his first Pro Bowl Sunday night. But, after setting a New York Giants rookie records with 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns, the receiver had some surprising news to share after the game.



Right after the Pro Bowl, Beckham revealed to reporters that the hamstring injury which kept him out of nearly the entire offseason program and training camp — and forced him to miss the season's first four games — is still not fully healed.

"I was never fully healthy for the season," he said. "I was just trying to manage and maintain it the best I could all year. It's still not right. Still working on it, trying to get it 100 percent for next year."




Even with the nagging injury, he put up numbers that likely will be good enough to earn him NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors when the award is presented on the eve of Super Bowl XLIX.

"It was a long recovery process," he said. "It took a while to get back into it. It took a lot of extra rehab day-in and day-out. Just to be able to make it through the season, I was very grateful."

And Beckham said he suffered not one but two hamstring tears. 



The first occurred during his first offseason practice and the second took place the week of the next-to-last preseason game. He finally played his first regular-season game on Oct. 5.

"You look at the Colts game [on Nov. 3] and the Philly game [on Oct. 12], every time I went to break away, you can see I'm stumbling," he said. "It's because my hamstring wasn't strong enough to maintain it. It's still something that I'm working on today, and I'll keep working on it throughout the offseason."

Beckham plans to ease off training almost entirely and devote more time to rehabbing his hamstring before getting back into full gear. 

"I'm going to have to shut it down for a little bit of time and just rehab," he said. "You build yourself back up and you get back to your running."

If Beckham was that good nursing those lingering injuries, Giants fans can only wonder what greatness lies ahead for him in the future.

Imprisoned Cowboys fan files $88 billion lawsuit against NFL for reversed Dez Bryant play: Report


One Cowboys fan — with more than enough time on his hands — thinks that the overturned Dez Bryant catch two weeks ago is just plain criminal and wants someone to pay.

Inmate Terry Hendrix, who is incarcerated in a Colorado correctional facility, has filed a lawsuit against the National Football League seeking over $88 billion in damages because of the controversial call against Dallas in the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.


Hendrix is reportedly seeking $88,987,654,321.88 in damages from the NFL "for but not limited to: negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and also reckless disregard," according to WFAA.com.

The jailbird specifically names NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino, referee Gene Steratore and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the lawsuit.


Bryant's catch, which was ruled incomplete after a video review, would have put the Cowboys at the 1-yard line. Hendrix writes "the Cowboys' offensive line would have perfectly created an 'Autobahn' for DeMarco Murray to drive into the endzone for the score and victory."

If Charles Manson can find love on death row, I guess anything is possible.

Mayweather heckled by fans calling for Pacquiao fight at Clippers game (VIDEO)

Floyd Mayweather's appearance at the Clippers-Nets game with celebrity pals Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Jay Z drew a lot of attention courtside at the Staples Center Thursday night.



And maybe more than the boxer wanted.



As the undefeated welterweight champ tried to enjoy the Clippers 123-84 blowout, more than a few fans used the opportunity to heckle Mayweather about avoiding a fight with Manny Pacquaio by chanting "We want Pacquiao, we want Pacquiao."




Negotiations between the two fighters are still ongoing as the boxing world waits for some sort of confirmation of the $200 million mega fight.

Pacquiao has already agreed to Mayweather's terms for the eagerly-awaited fight which has been penciled in for May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But the Filipino, who has given Mayweather a Jan. 31 deadline to commit, is already scouting out a potential bout with Amir Khan if a deal doesn't materialize.

Angry hockey dad breaks glass with wedding ring (VIDEO)

An rabid hockey dad got a little upset with a missed penalty call during youth league game and took out his frustration on the glass.



The d-bag parent punches the glass during a tournament in York, Penn. and sends shards all over the ice. Listen for another parent yell out, "Way to go, Paul" after the childish stunt.



The arena's president said the man's wedding ring concentrated the impact causing the safety glass to crumble, reported The York Daily Record.


"He broke the (wedding) ring," Menzer said. "Apparently, his hand wasn't in great shape either."

Charlotte McKinney goes au naturel in Carl's Jr. Super Bowl commercial (VIDEO)

Carl's Jr. is once again pushing the limits of Super Bowl censorship with a racy new ad starring Guess model Charlotte McKinney strolling through a farmer's market totally nude.

Well apparently nude.



The hamburger chain's ad features the shapely 22-year-old McKinney — who's being called the next Kate Upton — walking among the vegetable stands naked, using strategically placed giant onions and voluptuous tomatoes to conveniently censor her “bits and pieces,” just like the comical Austin Powers scene it mimics.

Oh yeah. She's promoting the company's new All-Natural Burger.


“I love going all natural,” the Florida native says in a voiceover. “It just makes me feel better. Nothing between me and my one hundred per cent all natural juicy grass-fed beef.”


Too bad the sexy spot will only be broadcast in the western times zones, so here it is below.

And there's no under-inflated anythings for the NFL or anyone else to worry about.
