If Cam Newton yelled 'get off my f***in field'

I didn't hear Matt Ryan say that. Not saying he didn't, but you should post some proof if you start a thread like this.

Cam couldn't do it because he's black and the media would blow it up. Duh.

You're missing the point atl. It was a hard fought win & his emotion got him. No biggie imo...

But reverse the situation (& put it in BoA) & Cam yells that, half the sports shows would be bashing him, calling him immature, classless, etc...

I dont have a problem with him doing it. He was stoked, the problem is had Cam of been the one to do that. The first segment on SportsNation tomorrow would be how Cam showed so little class during a win. Cam is judged differently than other players in the NFL. Why? I dont know, but there is no denying he is treated differently.

Not comparing Cam to Ron artest but hear me out..... Its just like if Ron Artest does a hard foul and Kobe does a hard foul... Its going to be looked at differently.

I say that because Matt Ryan is known as the Peyton Manning type guy... Not known from anything controversial.... Cam is more new age... Does antics but i still dont think thats why they would say something..... I think they would say something because dude is so hot and cold... Win he is winning he is smiling and having fun like a kid in a candy shop... When he lose.... Dude just act like he the only dude suffering during that lose.... He gotta remember he is a leader.

I the media has a mindset that Cam is immature so they will take things in differently then say if a McNabb did something...... Just using it as an example...

This is nothing. He's just saying it around teammates to celebrate. Not like he went up to Cam Newton and said it. You guys make a big deal out of the smallest things.

No. The ones I see going over everything Cam does with a fine tooth comb are the same ones who spent last year calling Cam a run first QB & got real quiet around 3,000 yards passing.

I think the Ron Artest/world peace comparison is way off...world peace was a straight nut man, he earned his reputation..

    • Great. That's like putting this guy in charge
    • As far as the OP's question, any OT, Allen (wasn't impressed with him in the playoffs), Lattimore, Charlton and a QB. I'd be happy with Adams, Hooker, Fournette and Howard. I'd love Fournette or Howard.
    • Again, your generalizing people.  While there are plenty of examples of trashy people (lord knows my mother's side of the family is basically a garbage dump of humanity), you can't paint the entire community in that scope.  Like many of the bootstrappers, you say "if I can do it, anyone can."  That's not true. I have a ton of stories of kids with potential, drive, brains, determination who are simply lost due to their demographics and experience.  I know a kid who was from an absolutely horrible situation.  His parents were jailed, raised by his aunt and uncle as a 2nd class citizen when compared to his cousin.  I mean, they provided, but they failed in the love department.  Not quite Harry Potter situation.   He was brilliant, earned a full ride to NCSU, but failed out in the first semester because while he could navigate a crappy neighborhood and poorly supported high school; he was unable to cope with the rich, white world of the majority of NCSU kids.  Culture shock.  Thankfully, he found the military, got his life straightened out, and is stationed in Hawaii and keeps posting these beautiful images of the islands. While it's fairly easy for white people of all income levels to navigate the great world of white culture, minorities and especially minorities from poverty have an extremely difficult time "fitting in" to the greater, whiter world.  It has nothing to do with their work ethic, their intelligence, but simply stepping into a world that is so different from where they are from. Hence why there's a significant amount of internet tension between bootstrappers and those who think it's fine to help those who need some help. What I'm seeing based on his news posts is a general level of ignorance of the people around him.  I mean, I get it, there are many examples on the huddle and in the world of people who overcame adversity, but they are the exception, not the norm.  That dirty word "white privilege," or more accurately "middle class privilege," blinds people to the realities of those outside of their small circles. Now before the angry, poor-to-rich bootstrappers get huffled about being called middle class, how hard was it for you to walk into a bank, talk to people, be taken seriously, and do business?  Despite their relative levels of poverty, they still have an advantage of knowing how to function in the greater, whiter world.
