If you are a man and wear a jersey in public, let alone the jersey of a team that isn't at the public event you are at, you deserve to be treated like poo. Laughed at, booed, things thrown at you, etc etc etc.

You're a douche if you wear another grown man's costume in public, you're beyond words if you wear one to the wrong sport or game.

It was a T-shirt, but please, carry on with your dissertation about costumes and the like...you seem quite intelligent.

Where is the proof that he stole a laptop? Are we to assuming...nevermind, I keep forgetting that it's now ingrained in our society to automatically think that way.

Ummm what? Cam did steal a laptop, or at least knowingly possessed a stolen laptop. Got him kicked out of Florida...
I have no idea where you're getting this whole society thinks "this way" thing, its an actual fact. Cam even admits to it as a mistake and owns up to it like a man.

Why do u think Barack won? There were people who were 50 years old voting for the first time in '08

Give them a reason to show up to the polls and they'll show up. Same thing with Cam and new Panther fans.

I have a problem with people only rooting for Cam and not the franchise. I guess it comes with the territory when u have a potential superstar.

You can't close the polls to those 50 year olds just because they're voting for the first time solely because Obama is on the ballot, and it's unfair to criticize new Panther fans who have just now become Panther fans solely because of Cam. I don't care how the fan ends up in the seat at BOA, I just appreciate that he or she is there and hope they grow into long-time Panthers supporters in the process.

One can argue that in the Panthers' short history they've never had a young star like Newton. Smitty has the talent but never had the consistent QB play to put up the numbers he was capable of in his prime, and Peppers was a revolutionary talent like Cam on the defensive side of the ball, but he never wanted to be the leader and shied away from the spotlight.

This really is uncharted territory for the franchise, and we must embrace it, because as you said, it comes with the territory.
