"Oh yeah, and Cameron. No white girls."


Cam should do the full rodman and come in with yellow hair, piercings, tattoos and two of the fattest white women he can find

I think that is probably taking Jerry a tad too literal. I think he made it clear Cam can be the face of the franchise and possibly more.......and doesn't want him to change.

Cam's got a nice unique look going. No reason to be come trite.


In my opinion, Jerry is doing Cam a favor. If Cam's play ends up living up to the hype, he will have to beat endorsement deals off with a stick. He is a handsome, well spoken kid. Why limit that marketing potential with tatts? Right or wrong, some companies might not put a guy on a commercial if he is covered in tatts. Staying clean cut could make Cam billions (with a B) by the end of his career.


Plus, if I was ghey I'd hit that.

If I were Cam I'd do exactly as JR suggested, and even go further with it. Clean cut, wholesome, family values, no public drinking, no clubbing, black or latino gf (don't want to upset the apple cart), no swearing, no rage, give back to the community, and then retire with a billion dollars. Hello heroine and whores!

The Panthers had a reputation for having thugs on the team in the late 90's after the whole Rae Carruth debacle, Fred Lane, Kerry Collins being racist, etc.

He knew Cam would be the unquestioned face of the franchise and he's trying to distance himself from those days. Nothing wrong with that. Even though tattoos and piercings in no way mean you're a thug, an old rich white man would have course associate the two. It's okay, he's writing the checks, he can do whatever he wants.

JR knew Cam was going to be the face of his franchise for many years. He is actually doing Cam a favor and very good advice. Cam has the potential to have Tiger Woods brand appeal if he keeps his appearance as it is and plays well. If Tiger got tatoos and piercings, his net worth would drop overnight.

Gonna have to disagree with jerry on this one. Cam is going to be the face of the franchise for what 10-15 years? Cam will be cam newton for the rest of his life. If he wants to get whatever he wants its his right to. Let the man enjoy his youth, i understand he is representing the carolina panthers but, he has a right to be who ever he wants to be when he's not on the field.

If it pisses off a few red blooded american then so be it. The fact that he's not allowed to grow dreadlock or have ear rings and such just seems so 40s and 50s. Seems like they want cam to jig and jive to there drum to please a certain audience. Who are we to tell him to be something he doesn't want to be. What if he was gay? I guess that was in the pre-employment screening. Cause being gay would tarnish the good ole boys image.

I'll remember to pay someone before making prejudice insinuations, thanks for the tip.

Because I love football for football, and not the drama, I really don't care. JR is a buisness man thinks of this team like so and as we all know most businesses you try and work for won't hire you with a bunch of piercings and tattoos. It's traditional and it's prejudice, but it's no the end of the world, I doubt anyone thinks have to listen to an old traditional man who doesn't even know what email is.

JR must not think too highly of this guy then:

If this article from PFT is correct (which I doubt) we should assume JR doesnt approve of what DeAngelo Williams looks like. We should probably assume DeAngelo is a bad person too.

Interesting because I heard them talking about it an hour before it was posted here and they had Florio already lined up to call in and talk about it.

Silly WFNZ....why you be so psychic?

Take it for what it's worth but apparently Jerry said it on TV....

http://mike-freeman....264363/31514743

I had forgotten about this and was reminded after reading an item in Profootballtalk.com. Now, I remember just how arrogantly owner Jerry Richardson behaved when he met quarterback Cam Newton.

Let me explain. In a recent television interview Richardson recalled his interview with Newton. At one point he told Newton: "Do you have any tattoos? He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘Do you have any piercings?’ He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘We want to keep it that way..."


“We want to keep no tattoos, no piercings, and I think you’ve got a very nice haircut," said Richardson.

nah, PFT took a comment and turned it into something it isn't.

Cam came in a polished All American type guy.....Jerry would prefer he stay that way. Doesn't mean Jerry thinks less of Steve Smith.....who we know is his homie.
