- We don't hate him. In fact, we have no personal feelings about him at all. He's just another football player.
- We have no desire to see him fail or have tragedy befall him. Why should we? What would it benefit us?
- We don't care that he's black. In fact, there's a load of white guys most of us don't want either.
- We simply think, for football reasons, that he's not worth the Panthers taking him with the #1 overall pick.
It really is that simple.
Now if you want to argue that he is worth it, well and good, as long as you bring football logic to the discussion. When, instead, you throw out stuff like "you hate him", "you're racist" or "you don't care about winning" or any other such personal argument, you don't help your case.
In fact, the only thing you actually do accomplish by saying that stuff is to make yourselves look really stupid :frown2:
The truth is that if Newton is drafted here, those of us who were against it happening will stand behind the choice and hope that we were wrong. Nobody's leaving the fanbase in protest because they drafted Cam Newton, and no one's going to hope that he fails or gets hurt. Quite the opposite, we'll hope for his success because that's what'll be best for the team.
If he isn't drafted, then the vast majority of us won't really care what happens to him - good or bad - because he won't be a Panther.
And that's pretty much all there is to it. I'm not sure why some find that so difficult to understand :nonod:
