3/4 of the people in my class didn't know of Newton, or probably the NFL for that matter.

I got 2 shaking heads when I started talking, but I laughed it off. I live in Maine so I catch flak from time to time, but I am used to it.

My biggest point about Newton: He has, at the VERY least, given Carolina hope of success when compared to last year. I mean, 1000 yards and 4 TD's through 3 games, when Clausen had 1300 and 3 TD's through what, 13 or so games?

Jeez.

Yeah the guys a rookie, hes played 3 games, but damn.

It was funny though, people at my school don't know football, probably never heard of the Panthers. But eff em. Cam Newton be praised!

Cam has been great speaking to the media. He has obviously been very well coached, and he has been very receptive to that coaching. The kid wants to be a legend.. so far so good..

Good friend of mine is from Maine, and they like the other futbol a lot up there.. And hockey is obviously king. Families play that schit out in the yard.

One quarter of the Maine's population with internet connection is on this board, they can tell you.

The rest are chasing Moose.

I had a class like that once and did a speech about the history of the Panthers. Probably a lot different being that I live in N.C. and there were several other fans in the class, but they said we could choose our own topic and I figured I'd go with what I knew.

I don't get it when folks state that Cam is "well coached." Are u trying to say he is to stupid to know how to handle the media or are u simply feeding off of what u hear others say and not really thinking?

FYI, many of these athletes are "coached" as to how to handle today's media, even someone who is preceived to be "so intelligent" like Blaine Gabbert is well coached. Sadly Cam had to learn the hard way that today's media is nothing more than "gotcha" media.
