What exactly would an anonymous source have to gain from saying something bad about him?
The people who are critical of Newton are doing research too. In fact, Lance Zeirlein confirmed via an NFL team that one of the knocks on him came from someone at Auburn.
For a little more insight, look here: Is Newton being treated fairly?
An anonymous source would have little to gain or lose by saying something negative or postive.
Because of this It's relativley reasonable to assume they simply told there honest opinion. Could these opinons be wrong? They could be.
Could all these mutiple sources from mutilple locations be lying? Sure, but I think that's doubtful.
I don't doubt the legitmacy of the research of other reputable professinals. Obviously Newton is causing mutiple people to view him in mutiple lights for whatever reason.
I myself have already stated my personal prefrence for us not to draft Newton.
Although that's not based who he is as a person.
All this argument has been about is me finding no reason to not take Sofli's paragraph seriously, seeinga s he's not giving his opinion but simply relaying the opinion of others who have had direct contact with the subject.
