I have to LOL...Cam Newton gets ripped because he didn't play well and is being scorned because the media has turned him having a towel over his head into him having a bad attitude. While Stevie gets rewarded by the same media for having such a firey hot and over the temper. And to think Terrelle Owens and Chad Johnson were shoved out of the NFL because of their supposedly bad attitudes or was it because they showed it to the wrong QB and team?

So Stevie taking his anger out on Cam for the lost of his team and the media having a field day with it because he sat on the sideline, is your idea of Stevie being a captain...Hmmmm I wonder how it would have been spunned had it been, Andrew Luck or Matthew Stafford who was screamed at by their receiver because he didn't "show" the kind of the emotion the receiver felt he should after losing? But it's only Cam, the media whooping boy, who was already smeared and scroned before he left college because he help take a not so media favored college football team to the championship game.

This reminds me of the tomfoolery that insued with the Bears when the camera caught Cutler laughing on the sidelines and the media blew that into him not taking the game of football seriously.

Dear Panther fans, you will not be winning much play-offs or SB rings with the kind of attitude you project unto your QBs. Attacking your QB whenever you lose isn't going to help you much.Learn from your division rivals the Saints about maturity. They lost a game that should have been theirs. Didn't see any receiver chewing out their QB for not acting the he wanted.

Thank you Steve for playing right into the media's hands. You just threw your team's season down the drain. What is with this team and it's issues with having no respect for their QBs? And you folks wonder why you're not going very far.


Well said. Oh and if Steve Smith would have pulled this on stafford or Luck the media would have eaten him alive.

Actually my only agenda has always been to keep a light on the way our media not only manipulate these players, but set out to treat every fan like fools.

What annoys me and I'm not afraid to say it, is the clear bais way in which certain players are treated by the media. If you're their chosen, you cannot do no wrong and you're given tons of room to grow. If they pegged you as a failure, they set out to keep that noose around your neck without giving you a real chance. If they simply want to create a negative mindset towards you based solely on sterotypical prejudices they do it. It is so disgustingly obvious.

I am a staunch Gaints fan and I was rooting for you guys to win simply because I saw how much the sports folks like those on NFLN was hyping Thursday's game by making it all about Cam. I saw it as a set up because, I knew the Panthers as a team isn't stronger than the Gaints.

It seems the media has a real love/hate relationship with Cam. They seem hell-bent on painting him as another Vince Young. You know, with "mental issues."

I saw that game and figured there was a reason why the network kept Cam's every move on the side lines on tv even thou he wasn't doing anything. It was so obvious. Especially with Mike Mayock's disecting Cam's every action with his silly know it all attitude as if Cam was still in the draft.

I found Steve's behavior on and off the field during the game, way more offensive than what Cam was doing. The fact that we're now hating on Cam and not Steve says, how powerful our media is. Or is it that they are simply playing on the baises and prejudices of the fans?


I say that there are few and I mean few sports fans who can even understand how the media creates heros and villains out of these athletes. But you are a smart fan and actually understand how the game is played by the media. Well stated comments on all of your posts.

Well then, thank you Smitty. !

At least you're honest enough to share how many of the Panther's fans seriously feel about Cam but are afraid to show it.

It's painfully obvious that Cam is nothing more than a workhorse and scape-goat for this team.


Preciate it.. im sure some will get butthurt because I don't like our franchise QB.. but it doesn't really bother me in the slightest. I'm used to having Steve Smith bail out whoever is under center.. and he did that a lot last year for Cam also. So as far as i'm concerned Steve Smith can say whatever the hell he wants to Cam.

I will say from day 1 I never liked cam .. I still don't , but I don't have to like him to like my team. So whining about people dogging cam is really dumb considering everybody has 1 player on a team they don't care for. If Cam does well then cool.. if he plays like ass then fug him sideways .. it's whatever.


Not hard to understand why you disliked him...

From your screen name, you are a Gamecock fan....and Cam Newton curbstomped the Gamecocks twice in one season. So you probably definitely were on the Scam wagon bc you wanted to hate the guy.....which in that scenario made sense. Before he was drafted Gamecock fans had a reason to hate him....he embarrassed the Gamecocks.

I actually disliked him before then actually. Though that certainly didn't help. He originally was close to committing to the gamecocks but changed his mind at the last second and we were in to deep with him because we felt he was a lock so we ended up not taking a decent QB in that class and that really hurt the team. I disliked him because of how much of a jackass he was for not informing Spurrier way beforehand that he wasn't as interested as he lead on. Then when the whole Auburn deal happened as I already hated anything to do with the state of Alabama with every fiber of my being which is ironic that Captain is from Mobile , it just escalated my dislike. However yeah I have a reason I don't like him outside of Sir Cameron Newton: Leader of Men, Lover of Puppies...Esquire.. I actually don't have an opinion on the whole pay to play crap.

I am a gamecock fan before a panther fan by only a small percent so how he screwed over my college team will bother me for a few more years. I may tolerate him at some point but for now no.. I do not like him.

As for the curbstomping as you put it.. the first game they won by 7 at their stadium .. the 2nd they got to enjoy playing against the 2nd team secondary as we were beaten to a pulp on defense with injuries so it was awesome they made it to the dome to begin with.


IMO until further notice the only real Newton at QB is Syvelle Newton. ( that is the defensive back Cam newtons brother we had a few years ago)

This dumming down by our media is getting ridiculous. We're now being told who to like and how the to see these players. I started to seriously pay attention to the way these athletes were being portrayed in the media a few years ago. That is what opened my eyes.

I was annoyed with the way Jay Cutler was treated by the media, when they ripped him because the camera caught him laughing after another Bear's losing game. The truth was, he wasn't there laughing and joking as those in the media was portraying him to be. He simply laughed when one of his team-mates was trying to cheer him up and the camera caught it. So not everything you see is the way it really appears.

Unfortunately, just like Culter, the media chose to turn Cam sitting with a towel on his head into a problem and a sign of concern for the Panthers. And, Smitty and HIS maurity issues, played right into their hands. I saw a grown man Thursday night on tv throwing temper tantrums and the media reward him with the usual.... Oh,that's Steve Smith for you, attitude. But Cam cannot be himself by simply sitting and keeping to himself. His every move was being watched and disected as if he was on the FBI most wanted list

I would much rather have a QB who keeps to himself than one so hot tempered that he's always fighting and in folks faces.

Clearly, just like everything else with our media...maturity is subjective.

They would've been portrayed as "victims" of a selfish diva WR. Luck threw 3 picks his first game and got smoked, and none of the media roasted him for it and demanded one of his receivers "put him in his place". But Cameron because of his size and athleticism will never be portrayed as that way. He will be marketed as a "brute", great physical specimen but flawed or undeveloped mentally. Same rehashed Jim crow era stereotypes, despite the fact Cameron is a lot smarter and mature than he's given credit at 23 years old.

Maybe you should practice what you're preach. I'm always amazed how some folks can easily perch themselves up on a soapbox and tear into someone's character based on nothing more than false perception.

I'm also glad to see how hypocritcal you are because everything you stated about Cam more describes Steve.

And I personally don't see attacking someone for not moving to the beat of your drums a sign of a selfless and mature individual. It's clear you folks don't care for Cam or else you wouldn't be hiding your own immaturity behind Smitty.



lol MMMMMMM false perception, Ive met them both, Steve is a stand up guy, Cam is not, Really don't think Cam will last long, Hope I'm wrong and we have a winning season, but so far I dont see him as a team player,

Cam has never suckerpunched one or TWO of his teammates or threw one of them under the bus in the media for local brownie points. Losing all these years has obviously taken its toll on Smith, and lets not act like he hasnt had his leadership/maturity questioned NUMEROUS times over the years. I applaud him stepping up and talking to Cam, but to run to the media about it is weak as fug.

Meh it's one thing to call someone out on the sideline .. but when you call them out to the media then no matter where they go they will know what they did wrong. Could be a good thing that he did that.

That is true and I have seen the same poo play out for over 25 years with mcnabb, culpepper, moon, cunningham and mcnair. Same poo different decade.

Opposite, calling guys out on the field or in house is fine...often a good thing. .Taking it to the media actually shows a LACK of leadership on Smith's part. Which is nothing new.

What Ricky Prohel did was leadership....

What Smitty did? Flawed
