Same thing with MJ when he was at his first all-star game. For the same reasons. MJ apparently pissed off a couple people on his team so they froze him out of the game. It is part if the territory if you are successful as a rookie.

It sucks but it's not that hard to believe. Players aren't gonna want to divulge their names when they tell these things, but that doesn't mean they're lying. I love Cam but some people in here are in as much denial as Saints fans circa July-August.

Does Cam come off as a snob sometimes...yes

Does it mean its his personality all the time...no

Is he the only one that does come off as a snob sometimes in the NFL....hell to the no.

If I was 23 and made it to the pro bowl I would think im the poo too. It's a matruity thing that EVERY PLAYER in the NFL goes through.

P. Manning and Ben Roethlisberger are prime examples.

I don't doubt some of the players in the Pro Bowl had preconceived notions of Cam being a diva that may have affected how they treated him, but Cam is a divisive guy. Some people just don't like how he is, and that's OK. But when it's to the detriment of him as a football player then it's not good.

It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to realize players got amped when Cam came into the game. Tackles became harder. Coverages got tighter.

Yes, I said rocket surgeon. Longtime Panthers fans may recognize the phrase.

Cam has just been elevated to my favorite player in the game.

We've got the next Michael Jordan over here! Honestly, I don't care that he's an asshole

Some of you are incredibly blinded by your homer glasses. It's a fuging fact that the defense went hard when Cam was in the game. For the entire game before, and after, the defensive line just stood up at the snap and tapped their opposing offensive lineman. When Cam is in the game they all of a sudden rush the pasher, and the offensive line just lets the blow by.

They poo didn't happen for no reason. For one reason or another there was a collective effort to make a statement on Cam. The reasons in the article are very believable, even if the specifics aren't. The Ray Lewis comment may be completely bogus, but the premise of the article could be entirely accurate.
