Very cool move. But it is weird seeing Cam take the ball from another player and give it to the kids. If Jonathan Stewart scores a TD he should give it to the fans.


That's just the tradition. The guy's don't care. He's done it since last season.

If you watch when he gives the ball away, all the kids that ask for the ball are wearing Cam jerseys, they all payed for his jersey, the game, they came to see him score and possibly get the TD ball.

Would it make any sense for Stewart to go give it to one of them?

Could this kid be any happier? The article has been updated with a note form the kid's dad, by the way.

AMEN! As much as I love Cam, two things I am tired of seeing are his twinkle-toed first down pointing celebrations and him ripping the ball from players to be the "guy" who gives the ball to the fans.

Sometimes the players do it themselves, like DeAngelo and Brandon have a couple of times. But usually they let Cam do it.

I really can't believe Cam giving TD balls away is still being construed as selfish. The kid simply can't win with this shitty fanbase.

He's just doing what the coaches told him to. Get rid of the ball before the end of the game.

"When the end of the game gets here, we need to play like we have no balls."
