So the guy obviously sits in locker rooms and times people on how long their showers are.... just a little creepy to me

that's quite an extrapolation. what have you heard specifically that warrants this level of conjecture? it has to be pretty significant to outweigh the good things guys like greg olsen have publicly stated about cam.


Well I was trying to defend Cam, actually. I forgot how much Panthers fans hate Peppers now. Pep is a good dude. So the comparison wasn't meant to be negative.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
