I was at the game and saw what actually happened:

Smith went to help Cam get up off the ground after the touch down; Cam got up on his own; Smith saw the ball on the ground; Smith picked up the ball and carried it to the Panthers bench. Cam didn't see this; ask for the ball the ref was holding; ref wouldn't give it to him b/c it was the one to be used for the extra point (kicking balls are different). You could not see this from the game on TV (I went to look for it).

Not sure what was done with the ball back at the bench, but mystery solved.

Whats so special about the kicking ball? Do they only have one available or something?

The K-balls are brand new for each game vs the regular ones that are handed out earlier in the week and broken in during practice. At least that's what the interwebs says. basically I guess that they keep a tighter control on the kicking ones to keep them from being messed with.

More sentimental value than anything..you could only sell those as just a ball no proof its a game ball Cam scored with

these balls are branded with the team name on them. if remember right though the visiting team is to supply the game balls, so any balls handed out at home wont have the panthers name on them. but they are different from just regular balls and with televised proof you could get some coin for these. just ask that girl in tampa.
