Cam Holds Thanksgiving Dinner for 300 Kids and Families

69 posts in this topic

fwiw, THIS is leadership. showing others that this is what you do when you have stuff that can make other people's lives a bit better, even for just a moment. for these kids, having cam newton serve them food and get to talk to him and have him even notice them is going to be a highlight of their life. should it be one? don't know. don't care. i just know that moments that i had with people i looked up to, even celebrities, are some great memories that i've had.

Funny how his sulking gets more media attention than his charity efforts such as this. Good news doesn't sell, I guess.

Probably only scoop of mashed potatoes he did. Called over cameraman to take pic then went to a private room to do lines off some strippers stomach.

too true, it just isn't interesting enough. of course, if the media did acknowledge all charitable deeds, it would be overwhelming.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
