Only comparison between Pep and Cam....

Unrealstic expectations and assumptions they can and should be Superman every week regardless of what is going on around them and opponents are doing

Love that our organization stepped up quickly & fired back in Cam's defense.

be that as it may, you made a direct comparison to pep being distant from the other guys on the team to cam's relationship with the other guys on the team based on what appears to be a significant level of first-hand or reliable second-hand information. would you mind sharing this?


I said in my post that I was comparing my knowledge of Pep to what Zod and others were hearing about Cam. It makes sense if you think about it. Cam and Pep are perhaps the only two players the Panthers have had who transcended football. Pep had NBA friends, rapper friends, etc. Didn't someone post something on here once about Cam hooking up with Katy Perry?

In comparing the two, I am in no way comparing their work ethic, their game, or anything like that. I'm just saying the two have a lot more in common than you might think, and some of the "Cam is a diva" mumbling coming from the locker room sure sounds familiar. When you make as much as they do and you are the face of the franchise at such a young age, you either grab that bull by the horns or you withdraw a little bit.

Newton is a 23 yr old superstar.

He isn't going to be buddy buddy with 30 yr married guys who go home to a wife and kids at night.

James Anderson said on his google chat Cam gravitates toward young single guys like LaFell who play offense.


Yep

Bingo. This is the most "star adverse" fanbase Ive ever been a part of. Our fans and organization are learning on the fly how to handle SUPERSTARS. We've still got some growing to do.

Cam IS a diva. Who gives a shït? So are Tom Brady, Alex Rodriguez, & LeBron James. They are also world champions & all-time greats.

Cam was a superstar at Auburn. As a pro he has been average at best. He has potential to be a superstar but he is nowhere close yet. Commercials & a Superman pose don't make him a great QB. Delusional homer is delusional.

Reilly isn't a NFL reporter. He's a glorified sports editor.

This is was bugs me about the media they are all professional trolls and as long as they don't say anything racial they can say whatever they want with no reprocussions.

Plenty of reprocussions if the rest of our fanbase did what I did....

call him out on Twitter for the ass clown POS hater he is..... about 100,000 fans tweeting him calling him out would make him & others think twice about spreading lies on Cam.

I sent Reilly a tweet but I kept it classy and didn't call him a name. You should too.

What a prick. That's the media for you. If they don't like you, they'll make poo up!
