Winslow Sr. Lambastes Media Coverage of Son Kellen Winslow Sr., who drove his son to the event and escorted him into the hotel, initially said he would not comment, either. However, a few hours later, the Hall of Famer changed his mind. The former San Diego Chargers star angrily accused the media of turning the younger Winslow's accident and recovery into a spectacle. "I'm disappointed in the way you guys have handled it. Twenty-one-year-old people make mistakes," he said. "He made a mistake. You made it a circus. Remember when you were 21? A human being at 21 makes mistakes. He's not a piece of property." Winslow Sr. was asked if he expected his son to make a full recovery. "It's a long career," he said. "I played nine years in the National Football League. Technically, I played six years two strikes, two major injuries and I came out OK. We look at it as a long-term career. "You guys look at it as a moment in time and you blow it out of proportion. This Jerry Springer mentality of journalism, you guys are better than that. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Presidents make mistakes. Senators make mistakes. Journalists, if you still call yourselves that, make mistakes." The guy actually does have point.
