Cam's Beef with the Local Media

So you think it’d be different it were a black female reporter. I disagree. Never gonna know for sure unless Cam makes another idiotic comment to a black female journalist.

It's certainly plausible, who knows for sure.

But people here get so bent out of shape when you question dynamics within the white community. Truth is, a lot of white people in my opinion will be quicker to rise to the defense of those they identify most with versus those of a different skin color. Not all of it is malicious cross burning racism, but it happens. You see it all across social media in equality related discussions, especially regarding police killings.

Agreed. but her stance comes off basically that you dont get to complain about sexism because i suffer from that also and racism also. So STFU about it?

 

I didn't  get that i got Cam said something wrong literally. Went behind doors they talked and both parties happy. Next thing we know Jourdan said she talked to Cam and it was worse...if it was worse then why leave with a smile..she played Cam and tthen the people retaliated and dug up her racist comments. It backfired, but no one seemed to blow up over her racist comments as they did the sexist comment by Cam even though Cams comment was misinterpreted his comment went viral quick but her wrong doings were sweep under the rug. Racism/ Sexism, bkack man/ white woman. He did not show when she came back why? Tried to create another story .. This is why Cam did not apologize for after 24hrs this why Cam did not mention her name in the apology. Because it was thought to be a non story to Cam bc it was crushed behind closed doors.  After she realized how viral it went she said it got worse. Spinning it. Cam is not malicious man if he soes something wrong he owns it. She didn't show her face bc she was wrong.. damage is done..walking around apologizing for what??

Care to explain why you disagree with the article?

it's not that i agree or disagree.  this is just tired.  people have "their man."  and cam is that for a lot of people.  everyone standing miles apart bc they think they know football.  holla at me when something novel happens that has deleterious effects on our super bowl goal.

This article proves what I’ve been saying forever. This team and this city does not deserve Cam. If the local media won’t respect you or applaud you why should anyone else. Also, if the local media is constantly kicking you while you’re down and making fumble jokes about SB50 why wouldn’t anyone else? The fact that Cam constantly gets treated like this and extended and chose to stay and tough it out speaks volumes about his character and loyalty. Honestly, if Cam were to ever leave Carolina I may hitch my bandwagon to wherever he goes. Being a Panthers fan after Peppers left was straight up embarrassing due to how our media and fans handled it

Racism comes in many forms. Truth is, there are a lot of "white people" that aren't racist at all, but resent the hell out of being called "white" instead of just "people." The same goes for Native Americans. While I have to go back to the 1800s for "pure blood" ancestors of that race, I actually, finally, "got" the whole Redskins thing, but I don't go around routinely labeling an entire race by their skin color...for lots of reasons, a big one being that's not an indicator of how a person acts, or what they believe. It's also deceiving. In Winter, you'd call me a white guy. After a week at the beach, you would be telling me to go back to the reservation. See what I mean?

PS...There is no such thing as the "white community," at least how you meant it. Such a generalization, at least to some people, might itself be indicative of a racist viewpoint. In fact, I don't know a soul that identifies himself that way unless it's a box to check on a government form. Southern? Yep. Scotch Irish, German, Scandinavian? Sure. Baptist, Presbyterian, Jewish? Of course. Tar Heel? That too. White...first words out of their mouth? Uhh, no one I associate with.

Thanks, cookie.  Amazing article, accurate and factual on all points.  I'm glad Cam is cutting these crybabies off.  He has never gotten the respect he deserved here.  Hell, I love Smitty, but he got more respect and essentially ended 3 dudes careers in off-field incidents.  So, I hope Cam keeps it up and I also hope he comes out and says these are the reasons he is doing it.  

Winningest QB in franchise history, Multiple NFL-record holder, 1x NFL MVP, multiple pro bowls, and gets treated worse than Brett Basenez.

Sports media as a whole seem to have a massively overinflated sense of self. Remember some journalists saying that without them people wouldn't even watch lol. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I'm catching a lotta poo for saying Cam should just play football. I think that's what he gets paid to do and it would help the teams focus.

That's what he wants to do...  He also gets paid to talk to the media, so he can't "just play football" as you want him to.  I wish he didn't have to deal with these clowns either, but its part of the job bud
