The Charlotte Observer pokes fun at Cam Newton?

214 posts in this topic

LOL @ all the examples he gave being white.

Wonder why this guy chose Cam?

Ignorant people piss me off... Makes me wonder if some people cryogenically froze themselves 60 years ago and just woke back up and saw Cam.

f*** that poo man....totally out of line...this is the greatest rookie QB in history, and 3 games into his 2nd year...WTF do they want...smh

Seriously though stuff like this is what will run the man out of town. The team sucks and the charlotte media isn't giving him any support by posting stuff like this it's almost like what's the point in trying if this is the results that are going to come from it that is just a stupid a** move on their part.

I dunno, I thought it was worth a chuckle. If this were a major media market it would be 100 times worse. Look at the pounding Snchez and Cutler take. Comes with the territory.

I don't even remember the Observer going after Clausen like this, who hands down was the worst QB in Panthers history. I guess Clausen gets a pass cause hm, hairdo? Or um, skin color?

Just playing devil's advocate here, but Cam was a #1 overall draft pick and is seen as the face of the franchise now. Plus I don't rememrber Clausen doing any kind of celebrations...not that he was good enough to do any.

If Cam didn't expect things like this to happen, then he's living on another planet. Home town papers generally target high profile players like Cam when the going is tough.

BTW...I think the cartoon is a little much.

Sanchez and Cutler aren't in their SECOND year.

Remember that time the Tampa-Tribune start bashing Freeman profusely last year? Yeah, me neither.

True. But I think this guy needs the direct approach. Auburn shielded him from criticism during "pay for play-gate". Might as well learn what real life is like early.
