Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday he will not punish quarterback Jameis Winston for the Heisman Trophy winner’s supermarket citation in April.

“Not after we found out the story and what had happened and [what Winston did] was not a malicious thing,” Fisher told reporters at the annual ACC Kickoff. “It was not done with intent.”

Winston was caught shoplifting $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish at a Tallahassee, Florida, store. He was forced to reimburse the store and perform community service. He also was suspended from the baseball team.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office said at the time of the incident it would not speculate whether Winston took the items intentionally.

“People need to realize, when you suspend him in baseball, you understand how important baseball is to him? That cut his heart out,” Fisher said. “If it was done maliciously, we may have done other things. It was a silly mistake and not done with any malicious doing, and you don’t punish a guy twice for the same crime.”

Any questions of Johnny Manziel‘s popularity were put to rest Monday when the NFL announced the rookie quarterback had the league’s top-selling jersey since April 1.

Manziel’s No. 2 outsold all other jerseys from April 1 to July 17 on NFLShop.com despite the late start after being drafted May 8. Dick’s Sporting Goods also said Monday said that Manziel’s jersey is its top seller.

Manziel was followed by Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Peyton Manning. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was seventh on the list.

Manziel, of course, is not only popular on the field. He’s been even more recognized this summer for his life off the field.

But that doesn’t concern Browns coach Mike Pettine.

Pettine said Monday that Manziel’s off-field activity will be a “non-story” once training camp starts.

“It’s something that was a hot topic for the offseason just because of who he is,” Pettine said. “It’s a very unique thing. I don’t think he can get a handle on the why. Is his behavior that much different form the average NFL player?”

Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will enter an NFL substance-abuse program in an attempt to have felony drug charges in Alabama dismissed, according to his attorney, Rod Giddens.

Giddens told The Associated Press Monday that Dareus was allowed to enter the program during a hearing in an Alabama courthouse earlier in the day.

Dareus was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after being stopped by a state trooper May 5.

Dareus’ charges will be dismissed and potentially expunged if he successfully completes the program.

Donald Sterling

Donald Sterling

Clippers owner Donald Sterling met with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Monday afternoon to discuss the imminent $2 billion sale of the team, according to ESPN.com.

The two men reportedly had a “friendly conversation” at Sterling’s Beverly Hills home. It was their first meeting in person since Ballmer negotiated the sale with Shelly Sterling on May 29.

The original agreement called for the sale to close by July 15, with a possible extension to Aug. 15. If a deal still is not finalized by Sept. 15, the NBA has the option to resume termination proceedings and sell the team itself.

Sterling had initially been preparing to file a new suit in state court Monday morning. One potential explanation for his change of heart may be overwhelming debts he needs the money to pay off.

Darren Schield, chief financial officer of Sterling’s properties, said Monday that the owner may be forced to sell a chunk of his real estate empire to cover $500 million in loans if he doesn’t sell the Clippers.

Schield testified Monday that three banks are set to recall loans to Sterling because of his decision to dissolve The Sterling Family Trust.

If Sterling has to sell $500 million worth of apartment buildings it could destabilize the Los Angeles real estate market, according to Schield.

Bill Clinton reportedly has blonde mistress nicknamed ‘Energizer’

A new book by Ronald Kessler claims former President Bill Clinton has a blond mistress nicknamed “Energizer” by his security staff.

Excerpts obtained from Kessler’s upcoming book “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents” revealed that the mistress would arrive at the Clinton home sometimes just minutes after Hillary Clinton has left.

“You’ve got a picture there?” Callahan asked.

Dennis said: “That’s what it’s missing.”

“My imagination is running wild,” Callahan said. “I picture like a young Lonnie Anderson.”

Dickerson added: “I thinking of an old Lonnie Anderson. Not young.”

According to the excerpts, Hillary’s secret service agents inform Bill’s detail when she is heading home so Bill has time to get the mistress off the property.

“Do you call B.S. on this, Gerry?” Dennis asked.

“No. I believe it 100 percent,” Callahan said.

Said Dickerson: “I call B.S. I think there’s more than one [mistress]. There’s like four of them.”

Gisele Bundchen reportedly controlling of Tom Brady

According to a report by Star Magazine, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady‘s marriage is at a low point because Bundchen is controlling and has final say when it comes to decisions such as how the home is decorated and where their children will be raised.

“I’m going to stop you when you get to the part that differentiates him from every other guy I know, including me,” Callahan told Dennis as he was reading the details. “So far we’re on the same page.”

Said Dickerson: “It’s all the things I don’t want to do.”

Bundchen reportedly has a strict chore schedule and forces Brady to get up early with the kids to scrub the toilets and clean the floors while she sleeps in.

“I’m calling B.S. on that,” Callahan said. “Get out of bed and clean the toilet? Cinderella didn’t have to do that. That’s stupid.”

Husband documents wife’s excuses to not have sex with him

A sexually frustrated husband documented every time his wife refused to have sex with him for a month and sent the spreadsheet to her before she left on a 10-day business trip. In response, the wife posted the sheet on Reddit and it went viral.

The list includes excuses such as, “I’m too drunk and ate too much,” and, ” ‘I just came back from the gym, I feel gross’ (didn’t shower until next morning).”

“She also cited a recent weight gain has not made her feel good about herself,” Dennis said. “I feel like an hour’s worth of sweaty sex would work some of that off. Would it not?”

The list revealed the couple had sex three times in seven weeks despite 27 attempts by the husband.

“Is this story related to the Hillary-Bill story at all?” Dickerson asked jokingly.

Callahan said: “I’m guessing Bill gave up on that 30 years ago.”

JetBlue pilot among six arrested in Boston drug bust

A JetBlue pilot from Florida was among six people arrested by Boston police over the weekend in an investigation of drug dealing.

According to police, John Manwaring of Maitland, Florida, and a woman with him were charged with possession of heroin, while the others were arrested for other drug charges.

“Now he was scheduled to fly out 14 hours after the bust,” Callahan said. “So if you buy the heroin and then you go with her, wherever, some flop house, shoot up, are you going to be OK to fly in 14 hours?”

Said Dennis: “I think JetBlue frowns on that.”
