I respectfully disagree because there is no disclaimer on lottery tickets requiring "a great responsibility" if the ticket happens to win a very large amount of money. At the end of the day the Robinsons did and are doing what they want to do regardless of of criticism from so called "experts". It was their "five minutes of fame" and is there really anything they could learn from the critics that never won a jackpot?

Yea, I fully understand your point and you are right - they can do what they want.  It is just sad when they put their trust in an attorney and then this happens.  Hoping for the best for them. 

And I also am VERY interested to know if they went to work today?

    The lawyer messed up as I barely remember what he looks like as I was looking at his daughter the whole time. I barely remember the Robertson's also. Hmmm maybe he is a genius. LOL

        I always feel pity for naive winners who choose to stand in front of a gaggle of reporters and hold a press conference, but watching this trainwreck on Friday was downright painful. This might just be the worst lawyer on the planet. The level of stupidity is off the charts here. At least the other dummy, the one bailing out her drug-dealing bf, is stupid in the name of love. 

        Friday's spectacle was the pilot episode in a saga that will run for many years to come. You can expect a falling out with the idiot lawyer, problems at work, turmoil in the small town, and a spotlight on everything they do. And they can forget about privacy. They will be besieged by people wanting handouts. 

        It's Jack Whitaker all over again, but with social media and hackers thrown in the mix for extra chaos.

        Crikey!

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

            They need to fire that lawyer ASAP. If I said I wanted privacy and my lawyer brushed that aside to boost the career of him and his child who just happens to be a writer for a local magazine, with the claim that the American public wants to know about me, he'd be out the door with a quickness. Seriously, this family should've hired someone who'd worked with big lottery winners in the past, not this sleazy ordinary joe.

                  If the font is too small, it's not worth the reading.  Skip it and read the next comment in line.

                    Looks like they are trying to stay anonymous with that font. LOL I doubt they know the winners. Black girls win all the time, and usually it never ends well. LOL So it is easy to predict that. I can see the font OK but I have a 33 inch LED for my PC and a 55 Inch for my TV. Maybe it is her posting who won you never know. LOL

                      It wasn't worth reading regardless of the font size. It's just one more internet user crawling out from under their bridge.

                        I have a question.  Why didn't they just form a trust to claim the prize like the previous powerball winner from Tennessee?  I didn't think Tennessee lottery winners could remain anonymous, but last year, someone from Tennessee formed a trust to remain anonymous.

                        Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                        If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

                          it's more or less answered in the title of this thread. "lottery veterans question tennessee family's behavior before claiming powerball winnings". although filthy rich, they're not about going to win the first briliancy prize in a chess tournament if they played in one. it seems they fell for a unscrupulous lawyer who wanted gain some fame and fortune and talked them into not doing that. form a trust that is.
