From Deadspin

The link above goes to a story and a collection of emails received by the Auburn's football team spokesperson Kirk Sampson and a litany of sports reporters during Cam's 2010 season. Of particular interest are the emails when the "pay for play" incident arises...

Thanks for the Info. The only thing about things in the Past is exactly that PAST.
The Super Cam Man is pretty amazing in his own right. Two years and 2 National Titles
one a small school, then National stage and Heisman just thrown in for good measure!
Dang sure would have been a good way to break into Adulthood.

I think the real value in this story is how the national sports reporters behave and how that influences their reporting. Reporters have an incestuous relationship with the subjects they cover, but they are first and foremost vultures.

Is it any wonder how a scandal like the one at Penn State was able to be swept under a rug for decades while Joe Pa muddled through one season after another?

They were digging for dirt on Cam until they arrived at a whiff of scandal that they could take off on. Marry the Auburn situation with Peter Kings infamous "entertainer, icon" mis-characterization and you begin to get a picture of the sports reporting world that most of us on this board read religiously to get a sliver of real information.

Cam doesn't pay the media any mind and neither should you.

And Peter King can suck truck nuts until he get's permanent lock-jaw IMHO..

I think the best thing about Cam being Carolina is that the past will go away faster. If he were in NY it would haunt him for alot longer. Here the haters will fade away and the Panthers can win some championships without the BS in every interview.

A writers job is to sell eyeballs on pages, nothing more. Big stars = big stories.

What's cool about the Cam thing is Peter King has been trying to kiss his ass and makeup with him all year. Cam will probably never even speak to him again. Funny.

The wisest thing said in the article?

This is how sports scandals unfold now. ESPN creates and amplifies the controversy from which ESPN alone can provide the safe haven.

The fact that he was able to keep his sanity and not crumble under the entire thing is a testament to his mental toughness....

The sad thing is, outside of us Carolina fans and Auburn fans, Cam will forever have a bad rep among the populace. Not only Cam, but the university of Auburn as well.
