Why would a lawyer advise his clients to go on national tv show before turning in the ticket?  The man took the ticket out of his shirt pocket.

    That's crazy why not just hold a press conference at the lottery office like most winner do No Nod hopefully he advised them to get away.

            They will be fine as long as they signed the ticket. LOL I said in another post I bet the winners got no sleep looks like I was right. LOL I would be in no hurry to do interviews but I also would want to just get them over it. Was smart to do it first that way the focus will be on "who were the other two winners?" I know I would not be doing any interviews though until I got the money, and certainly not carrying around the ticket even if it was signed.

                  Idiots...what kind of lawyer did they hire? One who wants 15 minutes of fame. What a sharp attorney! He is sure to get his share of the pie. Unbelievable. The threat to the security of this couple before the ticket has even been authorized is unreal. People are murdered for $100. What would someone do for $500,000,000?  Unbelievable. They should have taken time and created an LLC and claimed it that way. They have plenty of time to get things set up and still remain anonymous until the time comes.He keeps the ticket in his front shirt pocket with the one bullet he has for his gun like Barney Fife!  Can you imagine the scammers, so-called, friends etc waiting on them when they get home? "Return to work on Monday." Are you serious? For both good and bad reasons, your life is changed. Send the attorney you hired out for a long walk on a short pier and head straight for your local "very substantial" wealth management office. There you will find legal help, financial and tax advice, private banking and trust services.

                  If you really hold that ticket, you have already exposed yourself to unnecessary risk and harassment. Since there are only 3000 people in your town. You could give them each 100k and shut everyone up.Smash You will be the bank in your town.lol  Btw...I'm your long lost Uncle Pete who needs cash asap.LOL

                      Yep, I think this winner wants to become just like the Kardashians and be a massive media attention sponge.

                        It is official they just held their press conference at the Lottery Headquarters in Nashville.  Congratulations to John and Lisa Robinson!

                          I doubt they are going to get murdered just because they won the lottery. As I said before those are in the minority, and many of them got murdered because they were living shady lifestyles before they won and was more so based on "behavior" not just because they won the lottery. But they wanted to get the media over with so now the focus is on the others.

                           

                          Here is a screen shot I got of the wining ticket.

                            Be nice if LP can get an interview with that couple.  I'd like to know how many tickets they bought and if they were QP.  Seems like a down to earth couple.  Happy for them.

                              Ok, let me get this straight.  There ATTORNEY said THEY need to control the press conference so best to go to the media before going to the lottery to claim it?????

                              WOW - BEYOND STUPID!

                              Just watched the Today Show interview, seem like really nice people.  Hoping for the best for them.
