Charlotte Observer picks on the pro bowl QB; instead of directing anything at Rivera or Chud, etc. Mcdermott.

B/c no one outside of Charlotte knows who those guys are. Thing is, they want to sell papers. SO it was a smart move. But the newspaper business is a slimy one as a whole. This is brutal


Nobody buys newspapers at all much less because of a satirical cartoon.

Yea but adding to the fire like that after all the criticizim cam has already been receiving this week is pretty weak. If anyone deserved that it should have been one if not all of the coaches.

Totally agree. I'll never visit their site again and I unfollowed their twitter and all their reporters. F them.

You guys want this team, city, and fanbase to grow, but you can't handle the first taste of big bully media?

Grow a sack, guys.

When the people "picking" on him are the ones that are supposed to be supporting him then yes there is a problem with that. I don't care if the Observer were the ones that came up with the cartoon or not they still allowed it to be published that's bullshit.


LOL, never move to a big city then, you'll hate their media.

Oh word?

Remember my thread about how Charlotte media won't call out Hurney/JR


Let's hope that the Jimmeh can develop over the next 4 years... If I were Cam I'd surely not want to be here.

Fug the Observer!!!!

This team and city will not grow when the towns newspaper is insulting the franchise qb it's only going to make things worse. Why do we have to be like the Jets? Why can't we be more like Pitt? NE? Indy? Balt? I have never heard their media bad mouthing their franchise qb like Charlottes did to Cam Newton.

This. Everyone was so excited to get all the headlines when things were good, we got a thread for every single Newton commercial, advertisement, pop culture reference, and people came in their pants for a freakin Gatorade bottle. Did nobody have the sense to realize this is the other side of that?

I wish they would do a Hurney satire one, that one is truly deserving.

Have ever seen a newspaper from a large city?

The silver lining in all of this is that Joe Person will likely not get any more interviews with Cam EVER again!

Guilty by association, plus Person sucks, so maybe this is a good thing? Nope def not a good thing

The national media should be the ones publishing this image not the Charlotte Observer. Critics are out there and we have all seen and been apart of it when Cam first came to this town. But this is just unacceptable I don't see why this is so hard for you guys to understand the Observer should be on Cams side or just not say anything at all because soon enough if this crap continues we will be just like the Jets minus all of the playoff apperances.
