UPDATE: Fletcher Cox’s Tip

UPDATE: Someone who works at Pinsetter reached out to us on Twitter and said that a tip was left, in cash: “He 100% left cash as a tip. I was there. Our waitress should be ashamed of herself as well and cleared that up!”

So, there you have it. We got yet another tip to the contrary, which we’re still checking out. My concern was over whether the receipt was forged or not, and I never thought to consider the cash angle, given how pissed both the tipster and a separate tweeter were that he didn’t leave a tip on the card. I removed the image of the receipt for now.

UPDATE 2: Yet another person who says they work at Pinsetter, a waitress named [redacted], who is pissed about the situation, reached out to me this morning and said that no cash tip was found and that others are worried about getting in trouble with work for going public with it [apparently Eagles frequently hang out there]. “No chance at all” a cash tip was left, she said. I’ve reposted the original image.

Original post after the jump.

Oh, Fletcher, no.

Here’s an image sent in by tipster “Deez,” who claims this is a receipt from Pinsetter Bar & Bowl in New Jersey, signed off on by Fletcher Cox last night. $132.50 tab. $0 tip.

Now, having just watched Truth yesterday, I’m hyper vigilant that this sort of thing can be forged. So, a quick cross-check with Cox’s signature…

… makes what’s on the receipt close enough (most people just scribble on restaurant receipts), but still up for debate as to whether it’s legit or not. There are, however, two Tweets placing Cox in South Jersey last night… one of which rips him for not tipping at Pinsetter:

Voila_Capture 2016-02-28_09-58-07_AM
Voila_Capture 2016-02-28_09-58-47_AM

I’m leaning towards this being real. Assuming it is, there are always two sides to every story, so let’s consider that before we make things hard for Cox. Trying to find out more. Perhaps Cox left cash?

      This is just my personal policy………
      i always leave tip in cash, never write ‘cash’ on a credit receipt, just draw a line through the tip ‘box’
      and don’t leave until i hand them the cash in person.
      The wait staff gets screwed enough with the for sheit pay. I leave it up to them it they want to ‘claim it on their

      • Bleeding Green February 29, 2016 at 10:26 am

        I write “cash” and if possible, hand the waiter the cash. All so they don’t have to be taxed or be forced to share or wait for their tips.
        IF this is true, and only IF, Cox should be blasted by the media and stop acting like a n1gger.
        But, you have to give Cox the benefit of the doubt….for now.

    • Anthony Gargano's Fake Laugh February 28, 2016 at 5:51 pm

      It might have been pick up. He might have left the tip in cash. the bottom line is – is this all you have for your sorry -ass blog Kyle? How about posting what you leave for tips?

    When you leave a cash Tip you generally write “cash” on the tip line. At least that’s what I do. Or 20 cents.

    • Big Dom February 28, 2016 at 10:28 am

      Most people don’t write “cash”. Maybe like 1 in 5 people will do it. Most just draw a line through it

      • Howard Foreskin February 28, 2016 at 5:48 pm

        Writing in “CASH” just alerts the IRA that the server got tipped, and they would be taxed as such. I leave cash but don’t announce it. It’s nobody’s business but mine and the server’s. They get paid shite wages, they don’t Uncle Sam snooping around when they barely make a living wage.

      I worked 5 years in restaurants, saw “cash” maybe a half dozen times.

      But let’s face it, it’s much more likely that a brutha didn’t tip than a server is libeling a famous athlete for no particular reason.

    What’s the surprise. Black people rarely tip, and if they do, it’s never the standard 15 to 20 percent. I’ve served and worked in several bars. Pretty ironic too because in most cases, when you come up in poor to blue collar environments, you tend to tip more because you identify with someone in the service industry.

    Just shows that these people are essentially sub human and have respect for no one or not one thing

      Well, it is a little surprising when someone just received 50 million dollars (maybe more) in guaranteed money, and they dont leave a tip. I get your point, but its still a bit unsettling that the stereotype is oh so true. However, i am willing to bet there was a cash tip left, that may have been swiped.

  • Instigator February 28, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    The dude comes in a bar a dj often… saw the post .. immediately u thought maybe he paid cash (although dude is a rude douche I assure you).. I just did my own crossing broad reporting lol… he indeed does not tip but neither does Jason petters…. barwin does… the 3 hang out together often (cooper too before released)… and don’t ask I’m not saying where… def not trolling I’m telling the truth.

    • Cb.com blows February 28, 2016 at 2:16 pm

      You’re full of $hit because Peters used to come in Champps on Delaware Ave before their lease wasn’t renewed and the bartenders said he tipped just fine there, but wasn’t very talkative. No crime there but the man did tip.

      • instigator February 29, 2016 at 2:17 pm

        I certainly am not full of shit… when petters or cox come in the waitresses get pissed cause they don’t tip… I asked again before I posted because cooper and barwin are usually with them .. they made it very clear barwin tips other 3 do not… and that cox and petteRs are very rude.. cooper is nice (go figure)… the place I work has numerous players come in through the years… duce Staley is the nicest and tips well… 2 guys complained about most mcnabb (condescending asshole) and Iverson who used to work servers crazy and NEVER I mean never tipped. .. my story is true

  • Maxie February 28, 2016 at 4:40 pm

    I have known quite a few people, including me, who tip with cash and just draw a line through the tip space (mostly to prevent tip ripoffs and it does happen). There are a lot of places where waitstaff don’t get the money right away when it is put on the credit card and I am sure they would rather have it right away. These kneejerk reactions on this page are getting ridiculous. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Blacks don’t tip, everyone knows this. It may not be politically correct to say, but it is the truth, i worked at an applebees in high school and it’s just the way blacks are. And they don’t tip, because they are constantly playing the victim card, even while dining out. They are never satisfied with anything and sensitive about everything. Their drinks could constantly be re-filled and food could be instantly on the table cooked to perfection and they would still find something to complain about and feel slighted about to justify not tipping. Another thing that is common is that when they are finished eating they sort of lounge around like they are in their own family room, which i can understand if it’s late night and it isn’t busy but when it’s packed and people are waiting for tables , it’s time to get up and get the fuck out.

    All you people saying that it is no surprise because blacks don’t tip..you are right, in general ( who doesn’t know that to be true!). But in this case, when you have an accusation against a specific person in a specific incident, you need to get the full facts before you level accusations. Has there been a follow up? Has it been confirmed that he didn’t leave a cash tip?

    Tipping is not a law. Tipping is a consumers chance to get in the last word. I have NEVER spent more than $50 for a family of 4 for bowing in my life. How did he rack up over $130 in charges?? Who would drink or eat that much at a bowling alley unless it was a party? Waitress should be canned. Pinsetters won’t be sued but you can bet that NO Eagles players will be in there for a while. So what did that clown waitress just do to her boss and the owner? I know I won’t set foot in PYT after what happened with LeSean, right or wrong…

    • The Shark That's Going to Eat Kyle February 29, 2016 at 9:54 am

      Actually it might be pretty easy to rack up a hefty tab there if you had a group with you as the food at Pinsetter’s is actually really decent and they have a great bar. It’s a really nice alley.

    Kyle, you can’t post stories like this. You will never know the truth. Maybe a cash tip was left and the waitress was supposed to share it with others working that shift but she decided to pocket it. Or maybe her service sucked and she didn’t deserve a tip. But you post this story just to get hits from the racist fringe of the people who comment here. Have you had the balls to ask Fletcher himself yet?
